I love making healthy snacks! I especially love adding in powdered herbs to make them extra awesome 🙂 The powdered herbs I always have on hand are:

Astragalus- boost immune system, protect cardiovascular system

Tulsi/Holy Basil- balances hormones, lowers stress

Ashwagandha- help the body cope with stress, reduce inflammation

Medicinal Mushroom Blend- Reishi, Cordyceps, Turkey Tail, Chaga & Lion’s Mane- boost immune system and they all have their own specific benefits

They all have so many great benefits that I just listed a few but I definitely encourage you to do your own research to find more amazing reasons to add them to your cooking.

Here are two of my favorite snack recipes:
