Medicinal Mushrooms: 4 Super Simple Ways To Use!

by Mason Taylor July 14, 2016 4 mins read

Let's keep this real simple. We want you to easily integrate your medicinal mushrooms and tonic herbs into your daily lives. We've got the 4 easiest ways to do this for you! The first step to achieve this is to remember the intention of why you have chosen to bring these herbs into your life and what you intend for them to do for you.

Maybe this will help... 

  

We include the herbs in our diet because we are committed to our health right now. We are not waiting to get sick, we are not waiting for our immunity to fail and only then start to look at our health, because it can often be too late. So we take tonic herbs everyday. We use medicinal mushrooms and tonics to ensure that we are doing what is necessary to feed our immune system preventatively, arming us against the pulls of disease that surround us. The herbs at SuperFeast are adaptogenic, meaning that when they are consumed everyday they accumulate unique benefits that enable your body to dance around stress in the system that causes illness and feelings of anxiety. The tonics are a beautiful nutritional source and support for you organs, and when used consistently actually tone the organs (hellllooooo vitality), which is an action lacking in the Western diet. 

 

So this is why we take the tonics and medicinal mushrooms most, if not everyday. If you have some herbs lying around and don’t know how to use them, this guide will help you blow the dust off that packet and get them into your belly now that you are realigned with the intention: 

 

4 Simple Ways to Use Your Tonic Herbs And Mushies

 

1. Simply put the powder in your mouth

Sure, this is somewhat of a “hardcore” way to approach usage, however placing a teaspoon of the herbs in the mouth will act as a quick and easy way to get your daily dose, all while bringing your relationship to the flavours and feelings of the herb deeper. This is especially useful when traveling. If this feels too bad-ass to begin with, try a spoonful of Tremella. It will make your taste buds sing!!!

2. Add them to you smoothie or juice

Many of you create some kind of smoothie or juice everyday, whether its a green, superfood, fruit or protein smoothie. And we've got plenty of ideas here for you to explore. Whatever you’re making, simply take a spoon of your favourite herbs and add them in. The herbs have all have full spectrum extraction (unique to SuperFeast) so you don’t have to worry about extracting them any more; just add them in. Remember the herbs aren't effected by temperature - hot or cold is ok.

 

3. Add to soups, broths, dressings, brownies, bolognese - anything!

You can get covert and ninja with adding your medicinal mushies and tonic herbs to meals, especially if you’re wanting to introduce them to the family - here at SuperFeast we call it trojan-horsing. Our extracts are potent, meaning even small amounts will contribute to health to those taking them; that way you don’t need to add so much that flavours of your dressing/meal are altered (even though here at SuperFeast HQ we intentionally do this because we love their flavour).

4. Make a hot herbal tonic

Ok, we know this one is obvious!! But this is the most beneficial way the have your herbs because you are making a drink purely intended to deliver the medicine of the herbs into your system. Plus, taking a break and a few peaceful moments can be lovely and meditative. Try these ideas:

  1. Add hot water or tea, honey, herbs and coconut oil to a blender (with any other flavours/spices you like), blend and drink.
  2. Add herbs to your favourite healthy hot chocolate recipe (we've got a banging one here).
  3. Add your herbs to your coffee (it's nice to balance the stimulating coffee effects with a healthy anti-stimulant, like reishi, he shou wu, chaga). Check out our article on How To Make Your Coffee Healthy here!
  4. Check out all our beautiful elixir recipes for inspo!

Remember, our herbs can’t be damaged by heat, so you are free to blend them up hot and add to your dishes while cooking. 

 

So go forth, take herbs and prosper. We hope that this gives you great direction and intention in taking SuperFeast herbs. We sincerely love them and have experienced an immense enrichment and empowerment through their beautiful medicine, and we wish to support you in experiencing the same.
