Super Herb Cola-Flavored Elixir for the Masterful and Determined
For those interested in self-mastery and mastery of a skill, take reishi mushroom. It is the most renowned tonic herb for mental clarity and calm, while providing a deep reservoir of energy and physical endurance.* But do not take just any weak commodity reishi, take the fruiting body extract and spores of organic reishi grown on sustainable compost made from up to 40 herbs and grasses, we call Epic Reishi.
For those interested in passionate determination to accomplish feats of focus and strength, take maca root. It is a powerful adaptogen of sustained nourishment and improved cognition.* But do not take just any weak commodity maca root… take dual extract of organic black maca, we call Maca Bliss.
Together, these two super herbs provide the yin and the yang of high performance,* and when blended together just so, have a naturally delightful malty cola-like flavor explored in the following sugar-free, gluten-free, caffeine-free, vegan, paleo-friendly elixir recipe you can make easily at home or for work, preworkout or for on the go.

Super Herb Cola-Flavored Elixir for the Masterful and Determined

Blend on high in any blender for 10 seconds:
3/4 cup spring water
1/3 cup ice cubes
1 teaspoon Longevity Power Maca Bliss
1/2 teaspoon Longevity Power Epic Reishi
1/8 teaspoon, to taste, stevia extract powder (I love NOW Better Stevia)
1/16 teaspoon sea salt
OPTIONAL: 1/2 teaspoon organic vanilla liquid extract or 1/4 teaspoon organic almond liquid flavor extract
Pour into a glass (or mason jar) and imbibe in this hugely important habit on your road to self-mastery and accomplishing your most important goals!
I love ice cold drinks, but if you love hot drinks just replace the spring water and ice cubes with very warm water. Hot water does not damage our herbs as most of them are hot water extracts. Enjoy!
To your greatest health!

The Organic Egg Nog Recipe for Kicking Butt Through New Year's

This is the biohacker’s egg nog. The nog that keeps on kicking. Kicking butt that is, at your health and stress-resilience goals. This is the nog for your noggin (brain health optimization) and your body (nutrition therapy minus the food sensitivities/allergens).** It’s for people that love nog but can’t do cream and sugar, and for folks who don’t usually like egg nog but have a hankering’ for some nutmeg cinnamon spice up in their paleoesque superfood smoothie. This is the ketogenic friendly low carb athlete’s secret December weapon of choice. This is the Rocky fan and herbalist’s milk shake. This recipe is here to help you make a big difference in your health while you’re busy being festive.

Most importantly, this egg nog which is made with real organic egg yolks tastes better than store bought sugary egg nog and is sharable with your friends and family at any occasion while skyrocketing their health and mood. Even your Uncle Joe who loves conventional rum-spiked egg nog can have this (and it might help him avoid a carb-coma this year). 😉

Blend in blender for 30 seconds:

4 organic pasture-raised egg yolks

1/3 cup hydrolyzed collagen protein powder

1/3 cup organic refined coconut oil

1/3 cup sweet LUV (or sweetener of choice)

1/3 cup colostrum powder

1 teaspoon Longevity Power Maca Bliss

1 teaspoon Longevity Power Pearl Extract or GLOW He Shou Wu

1/4 teaspoon ground vanilla bean

1/4 teaspoon organic vanilla extract

1/4 teaspoon organic cinnamon powder (Ceylon cinnamon is best, cassia cinnamon is 2nd best)

2-5 pinches of ground nutmeg (or ever better is zested or chopped small pieces of whole nutmeg), to taste (strong but essential stuff, start with less)

2 pinches sea salt

1/2 cup very warm or hot spring water

Then add and blend for 20 seconds:

2 cups spring water ice cubes

Pour into some classy cups, glasses of mugs, and top with small pinches of organic cinnamon powder, ground vanilla, organic ground nutmeg, organic ground clove, organic cocoa powder and/or colostrum powder.

Optional: Add your favorite tonic tinctures of choice or, if you drink or are serving nog to your social drinking friends and family, offer a shot of rum, brandy, bourbon or other spirit, to taste. Egg nog is traditionally designed to be rich and thick enough to be thinned slightly by alcohol. This recipe is a great way to sneak some health back into your loved ones under the radar, whether they prefer their holiday cheer virgin or spiked.

Optional: For the coffee lovers, you can add coffee or espresso to ‘bullet proof’ this (the ingredients colostrum and coconut oil count as your butter and MCT oil in this case).

To your healthiest of holidays and a new year blessed with fulfilling accomplishments!

-Christian Bates

Ready to get the ‘download’ on which maca is the best for you? Which is mold-free? Which actually makes you smarter and sexier?** Yes! Thought so. Not only are there multiple colors (or phenotypes) of maca, but there are many preparations of maca too. Not all maca is created equal and some can be quite harmful (moldy maca = moldy body!)

Which Kind of Maca Is Healthiest, and Has No Mold?

The diversity of maca products out there is great enough that on the inferior side of the spectrum (most products) many maca powders barely provide any of the claimed effects and can lead to mold and candida issues. On the superior side of the spectrum maca lives up to its endurance boosting, virility strengthening, cognition supporting and aphrodisiac properties while being perfectly compliant to any food or sugar sensitivities or fungal and immune issues.**

50 Shades of Maca

High in the Andes in Peru in a field of maca, there are 3 primary colors of roots growing amongst each other. Yellow (a.k.a. white or creme) maca is the biggest and most abundant root, but is the least nutrient dense. It provides a lot of benefit because it is still maca, but in many studies it comes in a most definite 3rd place for effect and antioxidant levels. Since it is the cheapest to produce, most maca products are just milled yellow maca.

Which Kind of Maca Is Healthiest, and Has No Mold?

Red (a.k.a. purple) maca roots are in the middle in potency, size and abundance. Red is considered the best for men’s prostate, but for nearly all other effects, black maca is considered the best.**

Which Kind of Maca Is Healthiest, and Has No Mold?

Black maca is the smallest and rarest (a harvest will be 5% to 30% black maca roots). However, it is only slightly more costly to produce (fewer, smaller, lighter roots). It has been shown to be the best at boosting cognitive function and in females, increasing fertility and in males, increasing sperm count and mobility.** In my experience, black maca tastes way denser and less sweet than yellow, red or a tai-blend of colors. It has the force of jing in it.

Which Kind of Maca Is Healthiest, and Has No Mold?

The Understated Topic of Maca Preparation

Traditionally, maca isn’t eaten raw very often. It is usually cooked, fermented, or even extracted in some way and has been for hundred of years, which increases its potency and digestibility. Why are most maca products just raw milled maca? Because raw is inexpensive and because there is a market for ‘raw foods.’

Which Kind of Maca Is Healthiest, and Has No Mold?

Back when I used to fall for the ‘it should be raw’ short sightedness propaganda, I ate my share of raw maca. But today I would never ever recommend anybody eat raw maca. Okay, I might recommend it over eating a plate of gluten or a factory farmed fast food concoction, but because raw maca is sugary, starchy, fibrous, sometimes moldy, and always far less potent (the dosage of raw non-concentrated maca is about 3 tablespoons to receive maca’s full renowned effects – which tastes like 3 tablespoons of radish powder in my humble opinion – and often leads to the toots), I must say it is not great enough to be on your health protocol list. Maca’s active constituents are not heat sensitive – they remain intact at temperatures near 200*F, so raw cold processing is not necessary, and is in fact counter productive. Raw food and herb powders (that haven’t gone through a heat process) from the tropics tend to have a higher microbe contamination and mold risk (don’t play roulette with your health!)

Which Kind of Maca Is Healthiest, and Has No Mold?

The second most popular preparation of maca is gelatinized maca. This is wet-cooked maca. There is also a similar dry roasted maca. The cooking breaks down some of the fiber and starch and makes the maca about twice as concentrated and easier to digest. It is definitely an upgrade from the raw swag (hehe), but for those on a lower carb regimen, or for those who need to kick candida, it is still quite a bit glycemic (blood sugar and insulin spiking) with its starch and sugar content.** So I recommend skipping all the way to the best which is…

Dual extracted maca powder! This is the heavy hitter, a full spectrum extract using warm water and alcohol to concentrate the most active compounds in maca while removing the starchy parts. Water-only extracted maca powder usually has flowing agents in it to keep it from clumping, so 100% pure dual (warm water + ethanol) extract is where it’s at!

Which Kind of Maca Is Healthiest, and Has No Mold?

Before I explain what this truly delicious yet extremely potent dual extract preparation is exactly, I’d like to share that ten years ago I began developing the prototypes for the WildBar – the organic superfood meal replacement bar I co-created. During that time is when I started sourcing superfoods from manufactures from all over the world. Some superfoods looked similar on paper but were a world of difference in taste, quality and freshness. Some arrived moldy. It took a year and a half to painstakingly decide on the sources of all the ingredients for the WildBar before we launched, although the sources we used were the clear winners because not only did we develop great connections with the manufactures, they consistently provided fresh product with no off batches.

But even after launch, I strived to upgrade the WildBar over the years whenever possible, and eventually dropped the original premium raw maca ingredient and replaced it with what is now called Maca Bliss.

Which Kind of Maca Is Healthiest, and Has No Mold?

Maca Bliss is all about being the best possible maca in every way imaginable. It is made from organically grown black maca only (I considered making it from a mix of black (very best) and red roots (second best), but decided that it should be 100% black maca, only the best). Maca Bliss is not raw…. Not gelatinized… Not just a water extract… It is a 10X dual extract powder and nothing else. It is potency verified during the extraction process to be at least 0.6% (which is high) macamides and machines (the top active compounds that give maca its effects.)**

Which Kind of Maca Is Healthiest, and Has No Mold?

 

The dual extraction, done in a USDA Certified Organic facility Lima, Peru, uses both hot water and non-GMO cane alcohol to extract a full spectrum of water-soluble and lipid-soluble active compounds from the maca. We micro-strain out the bulk of the starches, sugars and fibers while concentrating the most medicinal fractions of black maca. We dehydrate the dark brown liquid we have created during the straining process into a powder (which due to some very nifty properties becomes a more tan color, but will become more black in color when it is rehydrated).

 

I have taken every kind of maca for the past 13 years and Maca Bliss is in a league of its own and the only kind of maca I give to my friends, family and colleagues.

 

1 teaspoon of Maca Bliss is equal to over 3 tablespoons of raw black maca powder (minus the fiber, radish flavor and toots). It melts in your mouth and tastes like a malty, tangy, slightly smokey and ever so lightly nectarous caramel concentrate. It goes in your mouth, in pure water, in a smoothie, on a treat, on ice cream, in a chocolate or dessert recipe to skyrocket energy levels, turn glands, organs and brain into a robust experience of rewilding health.** The energy is clean, very much felt, but not stimulating – the marks of a true adaptogen.**

Adaptogens: Going way beyond what a ‘healthy diet’ can do. Maca Bliss is a balanced adaptogen in that it helps the body be resilient amidst stress and allows one’s biology to thrive even during modern stressors like pollution, previous toxic food choices, and sitting around too much.** It may cause you to spontaneously do what your body, heart, sexuality and brilliant mind want to do most which is live an authentic life full of movement and engaging in habits of passion with which the soul feels in alignment. It bumps one closer to the status of sexy genius every time it is taken (oh, behave!)** It has both immediate all day benefits and cumulative long term benefits that keep on giving (what a gift from nature!)

Which Kind of Maca Is Healthiest, and Has No Mold?

Maca Bliss is a warming yang herb/superfood, which makes it a great winter warmer. Pre-workout, pre-work, pre-sex suggested in a post-industrial revolution world. It is equally effective for both men and woman.

Estrogen Dominance? Do This (VIDEO)

This Herbal Chocolate Dipped Fruit recipe will:

– protect your DNA from environmental toxins (many of the herbs are detoxifying and cell-protective in nature)**
– unleash the better side of your genetics – tap into your greatest physical + emotional potential**
– insure your health beyond what traditional health insurance could ever possibly offer**
– give you resilience to stressful situations so you’re not bogged down by depleted energy dealing with life**

Herbal Chocolate Dipped FruitINGREDIENTS

You only need to buy 2 items to make this recipe – I’ve kept it super simple for you!

1) Fresh organic ripe fruit (preferably from your local farmer’s market for berries, and if you use bananas please make sure they’re super ripe!)
2) 1-4 Chocolate Goldies (you can use more; this is a starting amount and what I used to make the recipe in pictures shown)

Herbal Chocolate Dipped Fruit

PREP WORK
1) Melt 4 Chocolate Goldies at a low temperature in the oven or hot water bath (in a bowl that’s within a bigger bowl of hot water) on top of the stove (each bar is 1 ounce so you’re melting 4 ounces total).
2) Chop your fresh fruit into bite-size pieces, place together on a plate for easy quick access, and get your natural wood / bamboo tongs & a spoon ready for action.

DIRECTIONS
1) With the melted chocolate in a bowl next to your plate of organic fruit, pick up a piece of fruit with the tongs, scoop a spoonful of the chocolate and pour over the fruit, let the excess drip off, and gently place on a separate clean plate.
2) Repeat until all fruit is used (don’t forget to taste test!) 😉

The Chocolate Goldies are a TEMPERED perfected superfood chocolate bar allowing your chocolate to naturally harden within minutes of being dipped with fruit. Once all fruit has been dipped or drenched, serve and enjoy as is, or pop in the fridge to relish later. YUM!!

Herbal Chocolate Dipped Fruit

The question may arise if you *have* to use the Chocolate Goldies – or can you just melt some bitter cacao paste, add some dried herbal powders, and call it good? My answer is that sure you can do anything you want, but not if you want supremely silky smooth (stone ground), truly aphrodisiac style, endocrine-supporting (hormone-balancing) cacao alchemy that will activate your inner power, ability to give and receive love, and inspire you to want more for yourself.

I’ve meticulously formulated the Herbal Harmony flavor that you’ll use for this recipe and it goes way beyond just adding a tonic herbal powder blend (Longevity in a Bottle) to a chocolate bar. Shoot for the stars you guys and you’ll zoom right past them IF you raise your standards and align with the most potent high integrity nutrition that is 100% recognized by your body as real food.

Prioritize your health & happiness, today… right now! What could be more fun or delicious than whipping up a quick batch of these chocolate dipped fruits and enjoying them as a treat with friends? You and everyone you make these for will adore them not only because they are a quick raw dessert recipe to make, but because you get your infusion of 40 different adaptogenic tonic herbs in every single bite. You don’t need to know how to formulate tonics or how to synergize herbs for maximum potency and absorption. I’ve done this complex step for you!

Herbal Chocolate Dipped Fruit

Have you made any recipes using the Chocolate Goldies? If so, we’d love to hear what you’ve done with them! Post a comment below and share how herbal infused healthy desserts have played a key role in helping you eat better as part of your overall wellness strategy.**

Make My Hormones Happy SMOOTHIE
You want to balance your hormones naturally and stabilize your moods so you have less ups and downs.** You’d even like to rev up your libido, crank up the stamina so it’s easy to get through a long day, and enhance athletic performance with greater endurance so you can slim down, tone up, and look your best!** You want harmony in your body and not have to take a bunch of pills or spend a ton of time in the kitchen prepping meals to make that happen.

Sound like you? You’re going to adore this smoothie that also happens to pack a high anti-oxidant punch. If you want to know a few key foods that help you bring balance to your hormones (and energy) naturally, this is for you. It’s going to make you feel really good if you resonate with fresh organic fruits + nutrient-rich superfoods, and it will only take a few minutes to make!

MAKE MY HORMONES HAPPY SMOOTHIE

* Use all organic ingredients

1 cup fresh living spring water
2 large frozen bananas
1 cup frozen blackberries
1+ tablespoon raw chocolate powder
1 teaspoon Maca Bliss (black maca root extract*)
1 teaspoon Immortality Alchemy’s Bee Mana (organic raw royal jelly)
1 teaspoon lucuma powder
1 teaspoon vanilla bean powder
3 medjool dates, pitted

Make My Hormones Happy SMOOTHIE
Blend on high for 1-2 minutes until it’s suuuuuuper smooth. Pour into a glass where you’ll be able to see the smoothie’s beauty and sprinkle this fuchsia colored delight with fresh local bee pollen for a burst of B VITAMINS + some heirloom organic raw vegan chocolate chips for a natural magnesium boost!

If you don’t want to use dates, I’d suggest using organic raw coconut water as the liquid base to make up for the sweetness the dates provide.

For your own sake, please do not use tap water in this or any recipe. It’s not a clean pure source of water and will not give you the next level health benefits you deeply desire!

* This smoothie will *not* taste nearly as yummy if you replace the most delicious Maca Bliss with some store-bought gritty raw maca powder. That stuff is unpalatable and will not deliver the profound results that this adrenal and kidney-restoring black maca root extract will. You want the creamy, slightly sweet, caramel-like maca that is also delicious straight by the spoonful! When you have an option of mediocre or the stellar, always go with the best! And that my friends is our MACA BLISS.

We’re bringing some harmony to your hormones, adrenals, nervous and immune systems with this one.** The Maca Bliss and organic raw royal jelly are THE master endocrine supporters in this recipe. They are the superstars that make all the difference in how you feel, and are best used on a regular basis so your results just keep getting better & better. I find that 1 teaspoon per day of each suits me well (petite female), though big strong men may want to double up on the dosage. The maca and royal jelly were specifically chosen because they are high in photo-androgens (what we need more of) as opposed to soy-based estrogen foods (what we don’t need more of) which really throw your hormones off balance.**

Make My Hormones Happy SMOOTHIE

Like this recipe? This is the kind of delish cuisine I’ll be serving at my upcoming Costa Rica retreat on April 20-26, 2014! If you want to take a healthy vacation in 1 of the most glorious and stunning places in the world with an abundance of island-grown organic produce, and enjoy group activities with other like-minded new friends (Pilates + yoga classes, romps on the beach, superfood demos) – you’ll want to REGISTER ASAP! I can guarantee it will be a magical experience for us all. Live gatherings like health & fitness retreats is where the greatest life-enhancing changes become possible in the shortest amount of time.

Thanks for reading guys! Highest vibes to you,
