Flu Season Mocha

By January 28, 2019 May 16th, 2019 No Comments

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!

Allison of flabstofitness has hands down one of the most delicious sounding mocha drinks you can dream of. Let’s get started!!

-1 cup organic coffee of choice
-1 scoop Vital Proteins Mocha Creamer
-1/2 tsp chaga extract
-1/2 tsp organic ceylon cinnamon
-stevia to taste (optional)
-1/2 tsp cordyceps-m extract, if you’re already sick + need mental endurance to continue working (obviously not recommended, but sometimes you’ve gotta do it!)

  1. Brew your coffee with your preferred method of choice
  2. Add 1/2 of the coffee and all the other ingredients to a coffee mug and blend using an immersion blender or milk frother!
  3. Add the rest of the coffee and froth the top of the drink. Enjoy!! 🙂 Please be sure to tag @flabstofitness and @real_mushrooms! We would love to see your creations!

Hey there!  My name is Allison Wojtowecz, and I'm so happy you're here.  This started out with my measly little Instagram account under the same name (@FlabsToFitness) during the summer of 2013.  Flabs to Fitness has become a corporation as of April 2017.  I have now graduated from the University of Texas at Austin with two degrees: a B.S. in Kinesiology and a B.A. in Theatre & Dance.  I think I'm funny and/or deserve to be on stage, so am regularly trying to grab attention at auditions & comedy shows around Austin.  I am a nationally certified ACE personal trainer, Precision Nutrition Level 1 graduate and Level 2 student, and an avid workout junkie/kitchen-dweller.  Some hobbies of mine (besides the obvious) include hunting and fishing, crafting, writing, making music, reading, and spending time with those I love.  I'm a strong Christian involved in a small group run by two of my kinesiology professors and love serving on mission trips - be they to the local food bank or across the world. Please feel free to ask me about that part of my life, too!  I am a wellness coach, not just a trainer or nutritionist.  I am constantly immersing myself in the study of nutrition and how Paleo living is the basis of optimal eating.  I also believe that each person should test different food groups and macronutrient variations to see what works best for them and what allergens don't necessarily bother them and can be consumed moderately.   If you're looking for a nutrition coach, meal planner, personal trainer, or wellness coach to help you find your groove, I'm your gal!  Let's chat.  Shoot me an email at flabstofitness@gmail.com. :)
