I have been intermittent fasting for a couple of years now. I tend to break from it on Saturdays to shake things up and I have been craving this for weeks now so I thought it a good time to revive it. I have made it with many variations but I love the addition of the Q Armor Nootropic Chai Blend from Q Sciences. It tastes amazing and offsets what used to happen to my brain when I ate in the morning (Fog. Boo.). That has all but disappeared anyway since I introduced a new multivitamin mineral complex called Q Max Premium, (also from Q Sciences… you’re going to detect a pattern here lol) which has fully methylated B vitamins and Folate (great for MTHFR) and each ingredient is nanoparticle size and chelated (bound to a metal ion for detoxification) and bound to an amino acid for absorption. Both the Adult formula and the Kids Core contain brain micronutrients and adaptogens to help with inflammation, brain health, heart health, immunity and even maintaining healthy cholesterol levels. Needless to say I’m feeling pretty great, but still like my Nootropic Mushrooms as an anti-inflammatory, anti-cancer, brain boost. They’re pretty yummy too. I sometimes like to add some essential oils as well, and use doTERRA because they have been tested for heavy metals, contain a QR code on each bottle so you can see those test results, and have a handy supplement panel on the bottles that are safe for internal use and for culinary uses so you don’t have to guess . My faves are Turmeric, Cardamom & Cinnamon but I also love the Lemon and Peppermint for beverages. (more on that in another post)
All in all it is yummy and satisfying.
