Four Sigmatic has figured out how to get a advantages of mushrooms like chaga, lions mane, cordyceps and reishi into tasty present drinks. My stream favorite is their adaptogen coffee mix that has tolsi and astragalus. But we adore all of their products. They have options with or but caffeine so if you’re not a caffeine chairman we can find products that we will love. And we find that even their coffee blends that do enclose caffeine have reduction than a normal crater of coffee. But don’t let this dope you. we have found that we get so most some-more concentration and mental clarity from these fungus blends than we do from unchanging coffee, and but a jitters. The further of a mushrooms, that are deliberate nootropics, definition that they are good for a mind creates these super food blends some-more effective and most healthier than only unchanging aged coffee. we adore them with a lurch of macadamia divert personally. we also adore that many of their splash mixes are present and finished into particular servings so they are ideal for transport or on a go.

This podcast is also brought to we by Good Culture. Good Culture creates extraordinary lodge cheese. we know, we know, not indispensably dual difference we would put in a same judgment on bland speaking. But theirs is awesome, we promise, even if we don’t adore lodge cheese. Basically, it’s naturally fermented lodge cheese so it’s giveaway of gums, fillers, and additives and it’s packaged with probiotics. And given it’s done naturally it doesn’t have that uncanny mouth feel that a lot of lodge cheese has. So, we use it all a time in cooking and smoothies as a surrogate for other forms of cheese, or only a dish on a go. You can find it during Whole Foods and many other grocery stores and it comes in yogurt-sized cups too, and those are ideal for meals. Check them out. It’s Good Culture and they are accessible during many grocery stores. we share one of my favorite recipes regulating Good Culture here.
