Misty – An Ambassador for Health in her Community


Written by: Ashley Vincenti

ambassadorCARTOONslogan1-yellowSince we launched the Teeccino Ambassador program last August, we’ve been asking the big question, “Are You A Teeccino Ambassador?“, and have been amazed at the response from our Teeccino community!  Now, almost six months later, we want to share with you how much fun we’ve had with this pioneer group of Ambassadors, like Misty of Big Clifty, KY.  Misty is a fantastic example of someone who is personally invested in the health of her community!

Misty has been an Ambassador since November when she joined us for our Webinar.  She has done two events so far, both of them health fairs and some of the largest events we’ve ever had in the Ambassador program!  We so appreciate Misty’s dedication to sharing Teeccino with her health-conscious community members, and here’s what she told us about her first event at her community center…

Fructose vs. Glucose: Satisfying the Brain’s Appetite Center


Written by: Caroline MacDougall

504d67769b4ee_brain_sugar_v3-680x320Obesity, as we all know, is on the rise here in the US. Over a third of all adult Americans along with 17% of children and adolescents are now obese. Though there are many reasons for increased weight gain including too little exercise from our sedentary modern lifestyle, researchers are pointing the finger at fructose, a sugar found in many soft drinks sweetened with high fructose corn syrup (55% fructose) and health foods sweetened with agave syrup (90% fructose).

Ellyn’s Ambassador Debut!


Written by: Ashley Vincenti

We are so glad Ellyn decided to be a Teeccino Ambassador!

One of the very first Teeccino Ambassadors to take our Webinar and host an event, Ellyn debuted as a Teeccino Ambassador on September 20, 2012 when she spoke to 25 people at her health class.  After receiving her Ambassador event request, we sent Ellyn Teeccino Tee-bags, brochures and coupons so she could host a great Ambassador event.  We were glad to hear it went so well and that Ellyn brought her own health knowledge (and Teeccino!) to share with her group:

“The course is on reducing sugar in the diet and replacing with anti-inflammatory super foods,” Ellyn reported. “We spoke first on the effects of sugar in our diets and how to begin cleansing, then related that to the inflammatory effects of coffee and offered Teeccino as a substitute.  Everyone took samples and coupons and seemed very willing to give it a try, some cold turkey and some by weaning it off.  We’re lucky because a Whole Foods right around the corner from our office sells Teeccino!”

Well, we feel lucky to have you as an Ambassador, Ellyn!  Keep up the great work…we know you feel as we do that the best part about being a Teeccino Ambassador is sharing the gift of good health with your community!

Are you interested in becoming a Teeccino Ambassador?  You can read more about the program here at Are You A Teeccino Ambassador? and join us at our next Webinar by taking a brief survey.

TeeChia Stuffed Portobello Mushrooms


Written by: Caroline MacDougall

finished mushroomsEvery Thanksgiving I like to make a special vegetarian dish that replaces turkey for those of us at the table who don’t eat it, which includes my sons and myself. This year, with TeeChia to inspire me, I decided to take a favorite dish of my family’s, my marinated Portobello mushrooms, and embellish them with a stuffing featuring TeeChia.

TeeChia Fresh Berry Cake – Gluten-free & Unsweetened


Written by: Caroline MacDougall

We like to celebrate our birthdays here at Teeccino with something yummy to eat. It’s a nice way for all of us to gather together without the formality of a “company meeting”. But lately, it’s been getting hard to find something that we all want eat. Some of us aren’t eating sugar, some aren’t eating wheat, some aren’t eating dairy. Fruit salad, anyone? That was great in the summer, but now we wanted something more substantial and well…cake-like! Read More
