The Cancer Free Life Blog
While I love medicinal mushrooms, not all of them are ideal for cooking. As I discussed this week on my blog, I especially prefer my reishi mushroom in capsule or powder form, their bitter taste just isn’t appetizing for me!

I want you to feel comfortable making the choices that are right for you, and while I would like for everyone to have my favorite superfoods on hand at all times, I recognize that would be asking you to make a substantial investment. What I suggest is getting what you can as you go and over time you will organically create your own superfood supply.
This Summer Superfood Blend is the perfect smoothie […]
