Chicory root has long been used to boost digestion…and, when roasted, as a delicious replacement for coffee (just in case you’re trying to kick the caffeine habit, too). If you can’t find ground chicory root at your local health-food store, you can order it online.

To make a tea, steep one teaspoon of ground chicory root for 10 minutes in an eight-ounce cup of just-boiled water, then strain. If you’re using roasted chicory root, try brewing it like coffee. (Use a little less than your usual amount of coffee—it’s strong stuff!) If you have whole chicory root (not ground), simmer about a tablespoon of pieces for 15 to 20 minutes, strain and drink. Use a little stevia if you need a sweetener.

Drink one cup daily before breakfast to give your metabolism a boost…and to break up your relationship with doughnuts.
