Mushroom Milk, Mushroom Miso, Hardcore...How Do You Take Your Herbs?
At SuperFeast, we believe in superhuman health hacks, so long as we don't have to make any compromises for quality! We love sharing the hacks and lifestyle upgrades that we use to support us on a daily basis. When it comes to getting the herbs into our bodies, we definitely try and go for convenience, and as Master herbalist Ron Teeguarden says, "the herbs you don't take won't do anything for you." These are some of our fave ways to ingest the herbs QUICKLY - and we'd love to hear yours!
Mushroom milk (we like PureHarvest Oat, Almond or CocoQuench or The Brokenhead Company coconut milk if homemade is in the too-hard-basket!) - 1 tsp herbs/mushrooms, honey/maple syrup to taste (sprinkle with cacao or cinnamon for a quick upgrade) - yummy, nourishing and easy (GREAT FOR KIDLETS!!) - you can add a tsp of cacao for a quick hot chocolate too. :)
Happy herbal snack paste - 1 Tbs tahini (or any nut butter you like), 1 tsp herbs/mushies, 1 tsp sweetner (honey/maple or if you prefer stevia, a teeny bit!), also great with 1-2 tsp raw cacao (try with a pinch of salt, vanilla and/or cinnamon for extra yum) - mix, eat! Great stuffed into a date or two, spread on toast or on sliced apple! UNREAL with hazelnut butter + cacao, like a healthy nutella.
Mushroom miso - 1 tsp REAL miso paste (make sure it has not been pasteurised), 1 tsp herbs/mushrooms, 1 cup boiling water, 1 Tbs shredded nori, 1 Tbs finely sliced shallots and 4-5 cubes silken tofu, if you eat it (make sure it's non-GMO, organic and good quality!). Hearty and nourishing.
- The hardcore longevity nerd - grab a spoon, pile it up with your herb extract powder and pop it straight in your mouth for 20-40 seconds. This way the herbs get straight across the blood barrier in your mouth, and it tastes fantastic!... When you get used to it ;)
