Superfood Matcha Detox Iced Tea Boosted with Mushrooms and Ashwagandha

Print

Forget plain black iced teas… supercharge your health and stay hydrated with MATCHA detox iced tea that’s been boosted with superfoods such as cordyceps mushrooms, ashwagandha, ginger, and wheatgrass! I love having this as an after lunch pick-me-up and serving it up to guests on a nice summer day. I don’t use a sweetener, but you can add some honey or lightly sweetened nut milk to make it a delicious matcha milk tea taste.

SO the secret to why this matcha iced tea is so much healthier for you than regular iced tea and other matcha teas is that it’s made using Superfood Matcha. You may already know that matcha has 137x the amount of antioxidants as other teas! But Mindful Matcha also has some wheatgrass in it, which doubles the source of antioxidants in your tea. PLUS, Superfood Matcha has organic Cordyceps mushrooms (provides energy and reduces fatigue), organic Ashwagandha (reduces stress and improved mood), AND organic ginger (improves digestion).

I have been so lucky to have worked with our Master Herbalists who helped develop Superfood Matcha to maximize the health benefits for our Further Food community. I hope you enjoy this supercharged Mindful Matcha Iced Tea.

Further Food Nutritionist Commentary:

Matcha doesn't always need to be hot! Enjoy it cold with our matcha iced tea recipe which is a refreshing post-workout libation! Matcha is perfect for after your workout because it is known to help boost your metabolism and burn calories thanks to the polyphenol EGCG that matcha contains in great amounts. EGCG has also been shown to help fight off free radicals in the body and even has anti-cancer properties!

I’m thrilled to welcome you to Further Food.
I started Further Food because I believe in the power of food - to nourish, to prevent disease. But... what happens when we get sick with a chronic illness? Or when someone we love gets diagnosed? How can food and diet changes help the healing process? Help better manage symptoms - naturally?
These were the questions I was struggling with when I started Further Food.
Last year, my father was diagnosed with diabetes II. We were shocked because my mother cooks very healthfully. But my dad sneaks in a lot of processed, unhealthy foods while he was on the road, which is much of the time.  Sound familiar?
Around the same time, one of my best friends was struggling with IBS and another was going through a bad Ulcerative Colitis flare. I wanted to help, but didn't know how. So I turned to the internet to do research. But what I found was scattered, disorganized, and often depressing.  I got sucked into these forums, but couldn't easily find the information I was looking for. And that's when I thought  - there must be a better way to help people discover how to use food to combat various aliments...in an easy-to-use, beautiful, and fun way!
And that's how Further Food was born. In my research, I have helped my dad change his diet. He is now 15 lbs lighter, has cut back on processed foods, and decreased his total daily carbs. The journey isn't over, but he's doing so much better! #winningdad. I've showed him Tiffany's inspiring story of how she reversed her diabetes and shared her "Phase I" meal plan with him.  My friend has changed her diet to dramatically to reduce her IBS symptoms, and I have recently introduced her to the FODMAP diet - one that I discovered from the contributors on Further Food!  With my urging, my other friend with Ulcerative Colitis, tried going gluten-free and found that his 'pain-level' dramatically reduced within a week of making the dietary changes!
These powerful experiences, along with the stories I hear daily from Further Food's Health Heroes, inspire me to keep going further.  I am so deeply honored to be spear-heading this important work of using crowd-sourced data to find food-based solutions for a variety of health conditions. I believe in the wisdom of your stories, the strength of our community, and in the power of celebrating food as we get healthy together.
Help us spread the word about what we're doing, because we're just getting started!
 
Bio: I have dedicated my career to building and funding mission driven companies, specifically in the health and wellness space. Further Food is the culmination of my experiences, and reflects my belief that companies should do well and do good. I am also a certified yoga teacher, and love to surf, run, tango, travel and cook. My BA is from Brown University and my MPP from Harvard University.
