In this fun and insightful episode, I sit down with my friend, Amanda Chantal Bacon - leader in global wellness, creator and founder of Moon Juice. Her brand-new book The Moon Juice Manual is designed to welcome comfort food into your kitchen, while synergistically working to find balance within your mind-body health. Made from adaptogenic blends of mushrooms and herbs, the Moon Juice recipes embrace a fun, transformative, and refurbishing take on your gut and wellness. Dig in as we break down the science behind adaptogens, and discuss their revolutionary role in crafting a new-age of approachable recipes.

Moon Juice was born from Amanda Chantal Bacon’s own experience — putting an autoimmune condition into remission after being told it wasn’t possible. Now a leader in the global wellness revolution, Moon Juice has three LA shops, a thriving direct-to-consumer business, and a comprehensive collection of adaptogenic supplements and skincare. Bacon has been featured in high-profile publications, including The New York Times, Forbes, and Vogue. The Moon Juice Cookbook was published in 2016, with a follow-up slated for 2021.

A few of my favorite things we cover this episode:

  • All about Amanda’s cookbook Moon Juice, and looking at some of her functional recipes that can help optimize your health and alleviate stress
  • How our stressors are linked to certain foods that we eat, and some of the key signals to look out for when there may be stress in our lives
  • The benefits of incorporating adaptogenic-based foods into our lifestyles
  • Some of Amanda’s favorite adaptogens to integrate into her meals and the best places to source from for her recipes
