The holidays are a fun time with loved ones and a much needed break for most. It's also possible that our immune system can weaken during this time due to over-indulging, emotions, and perhaps letting go of our normal self-care practices.
I can say for myself that it's been an emotional time (with full moon in effect also) and my body has responded quickly and feels weaker. It's making me slow down and actually take a look at all that's arising and needs to be worked out.
Health is so much more than just what we put into our body. Emotions, environment, and thoughts are just as important to our well-being. Although I have kept my holistic way of eating while I've been traveling and taking time off from work, I am needing to bump up my natural medicinal remedies (along with being still and looking inward) to keep my immune system strong.
My go-to the past few days has been this super creamy and delicious mushroom latte (because you all know I love mushrooms and chocolate!), which the whole family loved too.
This morning, I partially enjoyed this latte outside while it was snowing! Sadly, it didn't stick, but it was beautiful to watch.
2 cups hot spring water or tea
1 teaspoon Mushroom Immunity blend (find here)
1 Tablespoon raw cacao powder
1/2 teaspoon mucuna pruriens powder
1 Tablespoon raw honey
1 Tablespoon ghee or coconut oil
Pinch of sea salt
- Blend all ingredients together until creamy and frothy.
Enjoy and Stay Healthy!
