This is so good alongside your Hormone Balancing Truffles or just for a morning tea or afternoon pick me up!
You will feel a difference in a short time of enjoying this Healing Tonic! Healthy can feel decadent and taste delicious! To our health! Cheers!
3/4 cup hot plant based milk or water(unsweetened and no preservatives, refrigerated is better than boxed and homemade is ideal)
3/4 cup boiling filtered water
1/4-1/2 tsp. Each Powdered herb of your choice below. I do suggest you have a consultation with me or a Naturopath or Acupuncturist to determine which one are best for you. Herbs are powerful and you want to use them properly. Also, if you decide to try them on your own, try only one at a time for a week to see how you feel and notice any changes and document it. You can buy organic herbs at your local health food store or online. I use Thrive Market http://thrv.me/5nmK8C (please use this referral link and free memberships are available if needed), and Mountain Rose Herbs or Rebeccas Herbs in Boulder Colorado.
Reishi: Immune, Lungs, Kidney, Liver & Heart good in Fall/Winter, dispels phlegm/respiratory. Known as the Queen of Immune support.
Chaga: Immune, organs/glands, balances energy and appetite. Known as the King of Immune support.
Cordyceps: Increases oxygen uptake! Increases: stamina, energy & endurance. Great for high altitudes where it was discovered in Tibet!
Rhodiola: Adrenal and lung support. Increases energy.
Ashwagandha: Adaptogenic, Adrenals and balanced energy for fatigue. This is a nightshade so do not use it if you have achy joints or any Arthritis as it can cause increased pain.
Astragalus: immune, liver, energy, lung, anemia, cold & flu
Optional: 2 TBSP. Unsweetened cocoa powder or 2 tsp. organic turmeric powder or fresh
Optional: 1-2 tsp. Raw local honey or real maple syrup or a few drops liquid stevia. No Agave as it congests the liver!
1. Heat filtered water or plant based milk to a simmer. You can add a little coconut milk into a hot water version for creaminess. If you have a high powered blender like a Vitamix or Blendtec, you can skip this step and use the hot beverage or high speed to create the heat.
2. Put all ingredients into a blender and blend until frothy.
Note: you can use a hand frother. You can make this iced too, use refrigerated filtered water.

Lemon & Garlic Tahini Dressing
Pour dressing over Bowl of quinoa, or your favorite grain* or Cauliflower Rice, and organic vegetables. It’s also great over green salad, or as a veggie dip. Every bite will transport you to a field of lemons!
Yields: 2 cups
1/2-3/4 cup organic lemon juice(Meyer or Eureka), freshly squeezed
1/4 cup filtered water
1/3-1/2 cup organic sesame tahini
1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil or avocado oil
1 tsp. Himalayan salt
2 garlic cloves, pressed or minced
1/2 bunch flat organic parsley(can use another herb in addition or instead). Parsley is packed with chlorophyll and a great detoxer and deodorizer.
ground black pepper to taste
Put ingredients in order listed into a high powered blender. Blend just until smooth and creamy with flecks of parsley. Will keep in the refrigerator 1 week.
Lime Cilantro Dressing: use 1/3 cup lime juice in place of lemon and cilantro(chelator/detox) in place of parsley
*Gluten-free Grains that provide essential amino acids which build muscle and protein! They are essential because our bodies do not make them on its own, so we must eat them.
*Gluten-free Grains(buy organic and sprouted when available: Rice, Quinoa, Millet, Amaranth, Buckwheat. Try some new ones and see if you find a new fave! Use your rice cooker!
Pureed Vegetable Soup
This is so fast and easy. When I was in culinary school I was a private chef and the couple wanted to have soup every night, so I found an easy way to make small amounts! You don’t have to puree the vegetables since it makes a nice chunky soup if you prefer. Serve with a slice of Gluten-free toast with vegan butter or vegan cream cheese.
Yields: serves 2
1 teaspoon Avocado or extra virgin olive oil, optional
¼ cup diced onion, optional
2 cups organic fresh or frozen vegetables, diced (peas, squash, corn, broccoli, cauliflower etc…)
3-4 cups chicken or vegetable stock or filtered water
1 teaspoon fresh chopped herbs, optional (thyme, oregano, parsley, sage, tarragon, basil)
Himalayan salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
In a 2 quart sauce pot, sauté onion in Avocado oil until translucent. Add a single vegetable of your choice and stock or water. Bring to a boil over high heat. Simmer over low heat until vegetables are fork tender. Pour into a blender or use a hand stick blender and blend starting on low speed and gradually increasing to high speed. Be sure to hold the lid down with a kitchen towel to be sure the steam doesn’t push the lid off! Add fresh herbs. Taste for seasoning and adjust to your own taste. For a silky smooth soup, strain through a fine mesh sieve, but it is not necessary. I like it best strained.
My favorite combinations:
peas and tarragon or mint
squash and sage
organic corn and thyme
broccoli and basil add 1 cup cooked rice or potatoes to make it more creamy
carrot and parsley or carrot and ginger
Cauliflower and Basil or Cumin or Curry
For a cold soup, blend all ingredients in a blender. I like Persian Cucumber & Avocado with Dill and coconut yogurt.
You can also add an avocado for a creamer texture and some healthy fat which will help you feel full longer.
