Quitting Coffee? UnCoffee Your Life | MeghanTV


I love it when my family members come by the kitchen to share their wisdom with us, and this time is no different as my mom (yes, yes -- we look alike) shares her awesome secret to quitting coffee.

For as long as I've known my mom, she has been into health. Some of my earliest memories are of sitting on a mat at the back of her Jane-Fonda-style aerobics classes in Winnipeg. We never had sugary pop, candy, junk cereals or that kind of stuff around the house as kids and I have never, in my whole life, seen my mom sit down in front of the TV with anything other than a sliced apple, a cup of tea or perhaps the rare biscotti.

And because of all of this amazingness, she is rocking 62 (next week!) like no one else I know.

Coffee, however, has always been her non-negotiable vice. That is, until she gave it up.

In today's special episode of MeghanTV, my mom shares her coffee-quitting tips and her new morning UnCoffee ritual. She is oh-so-wise. In this video, you'll learn:

  • A great source of calcium (that's not milk!)
  • Why we love raw cacao
  • The secret ingredient for that coffee flavour
  • Why protein is so important first thing in the morning
  • How to curb the mid-morning snack craving
  • The best coffee replacement drink ever!
  • Where I get my laugh from

    Has anyone tried pre-mixing the dry ingredients and storing them in a mason jar to make this process even quicker on a busy morning? I'm thinking I'd just have to add a couple (or three) tablespoons of the mix, blend in the hot water and sweetener and be on my way. I would only need to make a cup at a time since my hubby is not a hot-drink-in-the-morning kind of guy. I'm thinking I could even re-purpose my little Mr Coffee pot to heat water for me while I'm getting ready for work. Thoughts?

    Love this! Can't wait to try it. I've always known I needed to kick the habit, I just never wanted to b/c 1- I love the taste of coffee (I don't drink it for energy), and 2- I wasn't ready for the migraine that follows giving up caffeine. I ended up getting sick last weekend and never had my coffee that day, and haven't had any since. Q- is the protein powder vanilla flavoured?

      I personally prefer natural, unflavored but use whatever you prefer.

    Do I purchase the dandy blend on line? Do you know where?
    • Meghan Telpner said…
      Hi Muriel, you can purchase Dandy Blend online directly from them, or alternatively check your local health food store as they may carry it.

      I like to use collagen powder, which you read more about here: There is also this great guide to protein powders that has both vegan and non-vegan options:

    I make Patsy's uncoffee all the time now! It's my go-to, ritual, 'relax and have a break' drink. The sesame adds a nice bitterness and I totally 'get it' as an ingredient. Thanks, Patsy!
