But first, coffee.
In order to keep my mind in balance I have had to give up a lot of things, from hard alcohol to gluten to sugar. I absolutely refuse to give up coffee. The joy of coffee gets me out of bed every morning and my sister and I love to find the best coffeeshops in each new city we visit.
However, regular coffee makes me anxious, my thoughts race and my hands get twitchy. I didn’t even realize until after I stopped drinking it for a couple of weeks how much it was affecting me. Sometimes I drink decaf but I do like the extra pickup in the morning so that wasn’t really working for me.
I kept seeing these cool images online of people in the forest drinking mushroom coffee. Finally I decided to try it, and now I won’t drink anything else. Four Sigmatic Mushroom Coffee is made from different types of mushrooms (not the magic kind) mixed with coffee powder. They also make blends of just mushrooms without coffee, and I love their mushroom hot cocoa. The combination of the mushrooms with the coffee improves the acidity and makes you awake and focused without being jittery or anxious. I’m always surprised after I drink it that I sit and do focused work for hours without getting distracted.
Mushrooms have long been known to be amazing for mental health. Some historians believe that mushrooms helped us gain consciousness! The flavor of the mushroom coffee is really good. Sometimes I crave a rich coffee flavor so I go out and get a decaf cappuccino, but on a daily basis I don’t miss regular coffee at all. I do wish that Four Sigmatic might sell the coffee in more bulk, but the small packets are nice to throw in my purse or take on a weekend trip. I’ve gotten my entire family hooked!
