I’m a firm believer in the power of food. If you put healthy, nourishing food into your body, it will gradually start to feel better and perform more efficiently. Here’s a simple recipe that I like to make when I’m feeling under the weather, or in the cold weather (brrrr)… great for warming you up. Additionally, Shiitake Mushroom Tea is proven to reduce a fever, dissolve excess fats and salt from the body and to relax a tight, tense condition.
- Soak dried mushrooms in water for 30 minutes, or until they are soft.
- Finely chop the mushrooms.
- Place in a pot with soaking water. Gently bring to boil. Simmer for 15 minutes.
- Add sea salt or shoyu soy sauce toward the end. Drink while hot.
