Herbal Coffee Bulletproof By The Nourished Caveman - Wait until you try this herbal coffee bulletproof!! You will be hooked! No caffeine here!

Coffee that’s good for you

We keto people just love our bulletproof anything!!

But what happens when you realize that your adrenal glands are exhausted or your thyroid is imbalanced or your blood sugar is going on a rollercoaster?! That is the time to quit caffeine!

(In case you are not familiar with the reasons why your should avoid caffeine read this great post!)

But let’s say you know of all the reasons and you have been looking for an healthy alternative to coffee…

Or you are trying to give up caffeine but do not really like herbal teas…

Alas, quitting caffeine is not always as easy as we would like it to be..Sometimes we just need a cup of hot creamy, bittersweet deliciousness to hold in our hands in the morning….And wouldn’t it be fantastic if that deliciousness is good for your body?


Using herbal coffee instead

Herbal coffee can be pretty much as tasty as the real deal!

I really like this Ayurvedic Roast!

Ayurvedic Roast is a 100% Certified Organic herbal coffee substitute that tastes like real coffee with no caffeine. Brews like coffee, drinks like coffee, without the edge and side effects of caffeine. It is the best tasting herbal coffee alternative currently available, and includes three antioxidant, adaptogenic, and immunity-enhancing organic ayurvedic herbs.

    I’m a bit confused by your reference to your herbal coffee being bulletproof. Do you mean bulletproof in the ways of The Bulletproof Executive, Dave Asprey? Have you looked into the concept that while many folks believe that the negative reactions they have to caffeinated beverages is attributed to the caffeine, that may not be true? Possibly it’s the toxins that come with the beans and from the processing of those beans, and not the caffeine itself. Dave’s coffee is toxin-free and he maintains that it’s the caffeine that transports the benefits of the healthy added fats into the brain. Here’s a link to his website, where you’ll find a plethora of posts relating to his Bulletproof coffee and yes, alternatives.

    • The Nourished Caveman says:

      Hey Randi, yes I am familiar with his coffee and I think it’s a great product.
      Caffeine is not for everybody though. If you follow my link and read the post about caffeine you will discover why. It can be from tea or green tea…the problem is not the coffee is the stimulant!!

      • Prithi Kaur says:

        Great website, though i have to beg to differ on naming it bulletproof…It wouldnt be considered bullet proof with those herbal coffees, as they have many mycotoxins and mold toxins. I have tested them with several methods including kinesiology thru dr. marshalls approach. Be careful of the herbal coffee substitutes.

        • The Nourished Caveman says:

          Hello Prithi
          I am happy to let you know that these herbs come form an extremely reputable source and they are continuously tested for such molds and toxins. Also I do applied kinesiology myself and tested both of them on several people. They tested just fine!! Maybe it is ust all about the quality of ingredients 😉

    Looks delicious! I make something similar using Dandy Blend. It is my favorite non-caffeine latte. I will go order some of Jessica’s herbs. I adore concocting my own blends but I think I’ll give hers a go. Thanks for sharing the warm goodness. Have a great weekend!

  3. Wenchypoo says:

    I’ve been using decaf tea for this–I’m not a coffee fan. I would have to dump in too much sweeteners to make it taste good, so i just avoid it and stick with tea. Decaf chai’s my current favorite.

    • The Nourished Caveman says:

      I used to do the same, but I do like the bitter taste a lot, so I do not even put stevia in my herbal coffee 🙂
      It is very useful to educate our palate to enjoy the taste bitter, as most bitter foods are very healing!

  4. D'anah says:

    So, as I live in Australia, I cannot purchase/get this “coffee” right!?

    • The Nourished Caveman says:

      D’anah, I am not sure, you should look at the Etsy store and see if they ship to Australia…you can always convo Jessica!

  5. Cici says:

    Holy expensive! At $40/lb I’d need to find a less expensive alternative if I were to try this!

    • The Nourished Caveman says:

      even if you bought your own herbs and blended them it would not be much cheaper…quality ingredients are not cheap unfortunately!

  6. Valerie says:

    I’m hooked, this is wonderful. Since I’m the only one drinking it and don’t like it too strong it will last quite a while. I like to mix up my morning brews using different teas every day. Thanks for sharing the info!

  7. Terrell Bond says:

    Hi Vivica,

    I’m following your meal plan and I’m finding that I’m so full from breakfast that I don’t have room for bulletproof tea. Would it be okay to have this in the evening before I go to bed? I always use roiboos, chamomile, osmanthus, or other non-caffeinated herbal tea. Thanks!

  8. kariane says:

    This looks great! I look forward to giving it a try.

  9. Megan says:

    Have you ever tried Crio? It is brewed like coffee, but from cocoa beans instead! I absolutely adore it and drink it hot and cold, black and bulletproof, lots of different ways. One of my personal favs is to brew it with some cinnamon and ground cayenne pepper for a spicy, warming treat.

    • The Nourished Caveman says:

      Hey Megan, no I have not but I will look into it 🙂

  10. Rose says:

    Could I use regular coffee instead or do I have to stick with decaf.?

    • The Nourished Caveman says:

      Rose, if you are ok wit caffeine (meaning no adrenal fatigue) that is fine 🙂

  11. Rose says:

    Could I just have regular coffee, instead of decaf?

  12. Is herbal coffee less acidic / more alkaline than decaf?

  13. Bara says:

    Hi Vivica, thank you for all the info on the caffeine! I use a decaf from Bulletproof for my bulletproof coffie… I am healing myself from Hashimoto’s, and my husband is stabilizing his Cron’s – we both do this by eating clean, low carb, dairy-free and high fibre diet (your blog is hitting the spot for us!!). After reading your post and the links in it, I have decided to give it a go and give up even the decaf coffie (which still contains abput 1/3 of caffeine of the non-decaf one). However, despite the fact that I cannot get this blend in Europe, I have a question. This blend contains grains, and so it contains gluten. Gluten is one of the things we gave up strictly in order to get out gut microbioms to a healthy state…I would like to know what to you think about it. Do not coffee substitutes that contain grains abolish a gluten-restricted diets?

    • The Nourished Caveman says:

      Hi Bara! Thank you so much for the compliments, I am happy you found my blog and hope it can provide you with many recipes 🙂
      There are different option for coffee substitute, one really good one is roasted dandelion root or chicory root. I prefer dandelion, here is an example. https://amzn.to/2v4JXtr

  14. Bara says:

    Oh and I have one more question. How about chocolate? I know theobromine is different to caffeine when it comes to metabolism, but is it know whether it also messes up with adrenal and thyroid hormones? I would not like to give up chocolate though…Thank you in advance for your opinion!

  15. Melanie Mastro says:

    How is this “coffee” keto if it contains Rye and barley?

    • The Nourished Caveman says:

      Melanie, the definition of ketogenic is to keep the carbs low enough to induce nutritional ketosis. So when it comes to keto there are no YES or NO ingredients per se.

  17. D Johnston says:

    My keto has been stalled by drinking Yerba mate and thinking it was zero carbs. Imagine my surprise to find out it has 4 carbs per cup! I read the label on this drink on Amazon and it says it has FIVE NET CARBS per cup! How is this bulletproof? Thanks for your offering, but I drink hot beverages throughout the day…
