This recipe came about as I was refilling my mason jar of Pau D'Arco last night. Its nutty, earthy and yet sweet scent brought to mind cinnamon, rooibos, chaga and raw cacao.
My husband came down with a bad cold this week, after catching a chill working in the rain. In an attempt to help him avoid being sick over the holidays, I have created and dispensed a small arsenal of herbal remedies.
I have decided to do a series of posts to celebrate the holidays, focusing on fun and festive beverages, immune supporting foods, and DIY herbal recipes. Which means you will be hearing from me daily for the next week or so, as I share various recipes and holiday ideas. I hope these posts will help bring lots of festive cheer to your holiday experience!
This Chaga Chai recipe has to be one of my favourite things in the whole world. I was all set to publish a post on popsicles this week, when I woke up to a cold and rainy day and decided to shift my focus.
The weather here in Victoria has been crazy hot over the past few weeks. As a result I have been focusing on staying hydrated, which includes seeking out some nourishing alternatives to water. Don't get me wrong, water on its own is fantastic, but when I find myself drinking a lot of it I start craving some variety.
I celebrated my birthday earlier this week. In the world we live in it is hard not to look at birthdays as a scourge, something that forces us to come face to face with our own mortality. Long gone are the days of joyful anticipation, counting down to this special day just for you. Now we are bombarded by anti-aging serums, featured in ads showcasing models and celebrities airbrushed to resemble something that doesn't actually exist. But you can rest assured that it looks really young. And pore free of course.
