We've definitely talked about the concept of 'self care' before, but sometimes even I need a reminder! This month's #SelfCare routine, is this super quick recipe to help pause, nourish, and reduce stress. 

It may just be me (or that crazy full moon last week?!), but September feels a little all over the place, like running on the spot emotionally, mentally and physically. And to top it all off, I have been combating my stress levels with everything I know not to do:  too much caffeine, stress-eating [insert wine & cheese in copious amounts] and even sugar too-- what balance? Food hangovers are real guys-- so-so-real. Ugh! 

Enter, medicinal mushies--- no, not the trippy kind. I'm talking about Reishi, the mother/queen of all mushrooms, and as with all mothers, this beauty has a hell of a lot of superpowers, and doesn't taste too bad either! 

First, let's look at some of the amazing benefits of this truly medicinal mushroom:

  • adaptogenic
  • antioxidant
  • anti-aging
  • detoxifying
  • immune boosting
  • stress reducing

Not to mention, it's also a super-concentrated source of phytonutrients, vitamins, minerals and enzymes. Reishi for life, right? Learn more here

Paige vs stress = soon to be winning ! 


  • 1 heaped tsp Reishi powder* (pssst can also use Chaga powder, another amazing immune boosting mushy, and a little better tasting!)
  • 1 heaped tsp almond butter
  • 1 tsp Maca powder (optional hormone balancing uber adaptogen!)
  • 1/2 tsp coconut oil 
  • 1 tsp raw honey (sweet tooth option, can also use maple syrup or stevia)
  • 1 cup boiling water

Put everything in a blender, add a dash of cold water,  then add the hot water and blend it up until it's nice and frothy! If you don't have almond butter, you can also add a dash of almond mylk (or Chia Life!). 

 *I like it STRONG, so maybe go with a little less for the first few times...
