Mushroom Mocha

With the flu and cold season in full swing. Nourishing our bodies and mind is even more critical to safeguard ourselves from these nasty little viruses and bacteria. The ideal food that comes to my mind is medicinal mushrooms. Think of mushrooms like the following:

  • shiitake
  • maitake
  • turkey tail
  • reishi
  • chaga
  • cordyceps militaris
  • lions mane

All of these medicinal mushrooms play a role in supporting and enhancing our immune system in a variety of unique ways along with nourishing various organs of the body. What’s not to love here!?

Let’s move onto the recipe portion!
