IMG_20140818_172341Just completed a month of Gracious Living Lifestyle Retreats in the beautiful remoteness of the Scottish Highlands.  WOW! What adventures to say the least!  Make sure to check out all our photos in my Scottish Facebook album.

So grateful for the the fabulous boys from Finland who have created Four Sigma Foods Medicinal Mushrooms & Herbs, for the body and mind, so you can thrive in your physical body.  We used their products all month to help aid detox, raise energy levels, reduce stress, improve sleep, and stabilize blood sugar.  I am so proud and honoured to be affiliated with their high quality products that help heal the body. (See the community team page HERE.) I believe their products are an  integral part of prevention and healing of disease.  Use them anywhere and everywhere!  Take a look at some of the ways we used them this month:

IMG_20140820_081921Use your individualized mushroom packets in a hot beverage of your choice.  On the right Instant LION’S MANE (which supports memory & nervous system health) is enjoyed with homemade almond milk or coconut milk.  Add some natural sweetener and cinnamon and it’s delicious! On the left Instant CHAGA (high in antioxidants & amazing for immune system health) is actually being enjoyed with a cold- water brewed coffee. (If you are going to drink coffee, adding some mushrooms helps to reduce the acidity of it.)  Also if you are going to drink coffee once in awhile, try to get organic, cold water pressed to also reduce acidity.  I am not promoting coffee, however I am also being real and trying to offer options to make it less harsh on your body & adrenals. Here are some more recipe ideas:  Spicy Goji Coffee and more liver cleansing beverages.

Instant MAITAKE  medicinal mushrooms are particularly good for supporting weight-loss and stabilizing blood sugar levels. We enjoyed these mushrooms hidden in Gracious Living Blueberry Vanilla Smoothies.

Well well well! Doesn’t this make your mouth water? It does mine! Instant SHIITAKE (the name makes me giggle every time, ha)  nurtures skin & beauty as it supports liver detoxification.  Hidden in these Gracious Living Monkey Fudge Bars so all you taste is melt in your mouth raw, vegan chocolate! See this guilt-free recipe on Sunwarrior’s website HERE.  You can also try this delicious variation, too:  Gracious Living Chocolate Mint Pistachio Squares.

And these beautiful superfood herbs aren’t just for sweet recipes.  Use them in your hot (or cold) soups or sauces!  We enjoyed Instant REISHI in a yummy Miso organic veggie soup with fresh chanterelle mushrooms that we foraged ourselves.  Some other ideas in fresh, LIVE soups HERE.
Or mix it in the  Gracious Living Creamy Coconut Pea Soup.
Or try it in a Gracious Living Creamy Cauliflower Salad Dressing.

 And finally, if you are hard core like me, (I like to think of it as more “intermediate” rather than hard core, lol) and you are on the go without a blender or food, just open up the packet and chew on it for a little pick me up.  I particularly like the Instant MAITAKE  packets because they are sweetened slightly with stevia, and also contain tulsi (great for stress), ginger, & rosehips. I think of it as mushroom candy. Ha, yes, I guess I am hard core. 🙂
