So, on a whim one morning, overcome with a desire for super dark chocolate and needing an extra brain boost from fat and Lions Mane, I decided to throw together some ingredients to see what would happen. And holy shit, magic happened. I posted on Instagram as the experiment progressed, and the response was real. [...]

So, it's that time of year again. It's time to open all the windows, pull out the shorts and tank tops, paint my nails bright colors, and.... switch from hot coffee to COLD BREW! Let's be real, bright teal nail polish just doesn't fly in the dead of winter (even a California winter where nothing [...]
