Welcome back to Alternative Thirsty Thursday!
This Weeks Tea is actually MUSHROOM COFFEE AND HOT CHOCOLATE! Wha?!?
YES. I discovered it through Gabby Bernstein's Instagram Story and was totally taken. (Side note, her newest book, The Universe Has Your Back, is really great!)
I'd been wanting something just like this. A little stronger than tea, wouldn't make me feel whacked out like regular coffee. Regular coffee makes my heart race - and not really in a good way most of the time. I mean, don't get me wrong, I'll partake in a nice cappuccino or espresso here and there, but I am not totally smitten with the after affects of good ol' coffee.

"If we surrendered
This Four Sigmatic Mushroom Coffee is also super healthy! The mushrooms they've included in this are adaptogenic, meaning that they heal and help in whatever areas need it in the body. Or, Google definition: "Adaptogens: (in herbal medicine) a natural substance considered to help the body adapt to stress and to exert a normalizing effect upon bodily processes. A well-known example is ginseng."
Good stuff, basically.
Four Sigmatic has lots of great videos which show athletes who use their product (full disclosure, this what sold me.) If you've been wanting to try it, I suggest it!
As for the other two! The Hot Chocolates! These are equally as yummy! I like the Pick Me Up Cordyceps one a ton! I made a cup of it with 1/2 hot water, then added a1/2 soy milk and drank it pre Oula (Dance Fitness) class and had SO MUCH ENERGY. It was really a great little boost that is easily absorbed into your system.
The Chill Out Vibes with Reishi is equally as nice in flavor and is calming, comforting, like a nice hug. I've yet to try these out iced, but I'm sure they'll be equally delicious!
I love these products as they have no added sugars or anything and can be totally tailored to your tastes and life style. They're easy to water down which does take away from the taste so I do suggest mixing as they suggest. I am totally smitten with how simple they are to make. Mix with water. Stir. The end! It's brilliant.
