::: Healing Mushrooms Book :::
My good friend and founder of Four Sigmatic, Tero Isokauppila, just released his new book that's jam-packed with practical information and 50 mushroom-boosted recipes for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and even dessert! Healing Mushrooms unlocks the vast potential of this often-overlooked superfood category and will be the go-to resource for adding adaptogenic mushrooms to your health and wellness regimen. Known for their ability to restore skin's youthful glow, increase energy levels, reduce brain fog, balance hormones, and so much more, you're not going to want to miss out on Healing Mushrooms!

In front of my office door is this foreboding 72 pound Gorilla kettlebell. Why? Every time I walk in and out of my office, I now do 3 sets of 10 swings. Trust me: that adds up over the day, even if I don't have a chance to "workout". How do YOU make fitness a part of YOUR daily routine? #kettleball #rkckettleball
