I'm going to be honest here, I love the ritual of making and drinking my morning latte. I enjoy the whole experience. On the downside, I know coffee is acidic and it doesn't exactly fit with the healthy high raw regime I follow but... I tell myself it's not so bad as I choose organic and only have one cup! Maybe my daily green smoothie and juice balance it all out right? Wrong!
The time has come to quit and I'm going to have to be gentle with myself. I have tried substitutes in the past but they just don't do it for me. What I am looking to do now is create a new morning ritual that starts my day with the soothing hug in a mug I currently enjoy.
This recipe is inspired by a popular Korean BBQ meat dish but is made using
mushrooms instead. It is super simple to make and amazingly delicious to eat.
Mushrooms have been used in Chinese medicine for thousands of years to help
restore our body’s balance and natural resistance to disease. They’re a great
protein source too.
Peppermint is one of the most popular
flavours in chocolate. We find the best method for adding flavourings is with
organic essential oils. These are the purest option, and you only need a few
drops to get a really quality taste.
