SUGAR-FREE BROWNIES & SUPERFOOD TONICS (WHOLE FOODS COLLAB)

When Whole Foods reached out to me last month to collaborate with them on using their superfood powders, I didn’t hesitate to say YES!  If you follow me on Instagram, you know I’m all about the superfood powders, mushrooms, and Chinese herbs.  I add them to my desserts and into my savory dishes, but my favorite way to use them is in warm latte-like elixirs.  It’s such a great (and easy!) way to cram a ton of nutrition into one little mug.

 

My dream would be to open up my own tonic bar, where I can create the most healing elixirs and nourishing desserts for all of you.  I get to live out my dream (temporarily) this week, thanks to Whole Foods, with a pop-up tonic bar.  If you’re in the Los Angeles area, I would love to see you.  Come say hello, sip on the most delicious tonics, and snack on these yummy and nutritious brownies.  If you’re not in LA or you can’t make it, you can tune in for the live stream.

 

 

Better yet, make them yourself and share them with your favorite humans (or keep them all to yourself – I’m not judging!).

 

Some quick notes on the superfoods I used, because knowledge is power!

  • FOUR SIGMATIC REISHI – I wrote an entire blog article on why I use reishi and a few other mushrooms, which you should read if you have any interest.  It’s packed full of information.  Reishi is great for stress/anxiety, immunity, cancer prevention, and is the perfect nightcap, as it increases your quality of sleep!
  • VITAL PROTEINS COLLAGEN PEPTIDES – Collagen is great for improving the health of your skin, hair, and nails, reducing joint pain, healing leaky gut and improving digestion.  It’s also a great protein source, which can help increase your metabolism!
  • MATCHABAR MATCHA  – Matcha green tea is not only very high in antioxidants (supporting your skin health & protecting you from cancer!), but it’s also high in EGCG, which is shown to increase your ability to burn fat!  Matcha can also help lower blood pressure and increase your focus and concentration.  Yes, please!
  • SPIRULINA – This blue-green algae is a detoxifying powerhouse!  Spirulina can help detox heavy metals, eliminate candida (yeast overgrowth), lower blood pressure, reduce cholesterol, boost your energy, and help curb your cravings, while speeding up weight loss.

 

 

These tonics and brownies are also sugar-free and rich in good, healthy fats, which we now know is better fuel for keeping your blood sugar stable, energizing you, turning your brain on and most importantly, shutting off your cravings and hunger hormones.  Try replacing your morning latte with one of these tonics and give the brownies a shot for a sugar-free sweet treat!

 

 

Have you tried any of these superfoods?  How do you incorporate superfoods into your life?
