11 Sep Reishi apple pie oatmeal
We’re approaching the end of summer, and with that, also the end of your favorite summery meals. But with autumn around the corner, there are also a lot of beneficial recipes that come into season again!
We try to be mindful of what is in season, and it so happens that September brings us apples, one of the main ingredients of this healthy and warming breakfast.
Reishi apple pie oatmeal in September
Another important ingredient that will be harvested this upcoming season is our beloved Reishi mushroom. Our supplier harvests the mature Reishi mushrooms between August and October of each year.
In Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), Reishi is known as Lingzhi, meaning “herb of spiritual potency.” These beloved mushrooms are used for nourishing the heart and quieting the spirit. In this ancient medical practice, the “Shen” represents the thinking mind or the body’s spirit, which is housed in the heart. Agitation, anxiety, insomnia are all indications of a disrupted Shen, indicating a need to support and heal the heart.
And what better way to guard your heart and spirit with our heartwarming apple pie oatmeal recipe!
