Taste the, well, beetroot

One of the hardest things to resolve since moving from the UK to BC has been regulating my diet. My yeast and dairy intolerance make a standard diet kind of hard. So, finding Capers has been a real boon. Capers is stuffed full of organic produce, a vast range of other foods, drinks and supplements a plenty. Add in the on site cafe, fresh salads and pastries and you have the healthy eating person’s dream shop.

Although herbal teas can be found at most grocery outlets, I’ve struggled to find a coffee substitute. In the UK my chosen tipple was Dandelion Root coffee, affectionately know as my cup of mud. I haven’t found ‘mud’ here, but I’ve come across Krakus. And, my new country find hails from, yes, Europe. Poland is the home of Krakus, a mix of barley, rye, chicory and beetroot. Some find it a ‘sublime’ beverage, for me the jury’s still out. I’m not a foodie by any stretch of the imagination, but I know what I like and what I don’t. Krakus is currently on the fence, but there’s nothing else to provide competition at the moment.
