    Suggestions for a hot but caffeine-free primal drink?

    When fasting I find that I get very cold despite putting a few extra layers on under my work shirt. Unfortunately I can't take even decaf tea of coffee because even the minimal caffeine content makes my acne really flair up (and I never take milk which also makes me flair up).

    Can anyone suggest a suitably primal hot drink that is naturally caffeine free? What about some of the fruit teas? I'm unsure about their 'natural flavourings'?

    Thanks!

    Sorrel, ginger tea, hot lemonade. Actually if it's good water I quite enjoy plain hot water too. Sounds weird, but try it out .

    Teeccino is carbohydrate heavy for someone fasting.

    I LOVE plain Rooibos tea. It is also called Red Tea and has a very subtle vanilla flavor to it, in my opinion. It is amazing with a slice of ginger and a cinnamon stick, too. Also, if you can find a place like Whole Foods that sells bulk teas, Republic of Tea's Cardamom Cinnamon is a delicious, hot, full-bodied cup. Yay for teas! (or Tisanes, technically!)

    Make your own bone broth or soup. Keep in thermos. Drink to stay toasty

    People say I am on a "crazy" diet. What is so crazy about eating veggies, fruits, seafood and organ meats? Just because I don't eat whole wheat and processed food doesn't make my diet "crazy". Maybe everyone else with a SAD are the "crazy" ones for putting that junk in their system.

    So nourishing! but didn't the original poster mention that this was during a fast?

    I wonder how long one could survive on bone-broth alone... SO nourishing...

    I like hot cocoa. A tsp of cocoa, hot water, stevia and coconut milk or heavy cream. You can add a little vanilla, cinnamon or cloves - or all of them.

    The protein available in bone broth is not complete. They would still be available for glucogenesis and ketogenesis, but lean body mass will still be depleted.

    I was going to suggest hot chocolate, but doesn't cacao have a small amount of caffeine as well?
