Cooking With Adaptogenic Mushrooms: Where to Start
by Alex Heining on Nov 01, 2022
Adaptogenic mushrooms offer a quality variety of benefits to get acclimated with when you're trying to cook new recipes.
However, they can be tough to get started using when you aren't familiar with their benefits or how they work to benefit your nutrition.
Luckily, we've spent the better part of the last year intimately working with these mushrooms and finding the perfect blends to create impactful nootropic gummies for improving the every day routine. Today, Team Troomy's compiled some of the most impactful adaptogenic mushrooms to add into your diet fast, as well as recipes to use with them that'll make it simple and easy to try.
What are Adaptogenic Mushrooms?
For starters, these aren't just mushrooms you're going to pickup in any old store. They are nutritious, healthy, hard to find, and have a limited shelf-life. You'll have to find a reliable supplier when you get started with these as a routine part of your meals.
But overall, adaptogenic mushrooms are considered "superfoods" that each have a variety of benefits. With over 14,000 mushroom species discovered today, you need to be able to navigate which mushrooms will really have an impact on how you feel, why it's important to add them into your diet, and where to get started.
Linked Benefits of Adaptogenic Mushrooms in Your Diet
Being out of focus is tough. It can make starting the day harder, the afternoons drag, and as if your workflow has no end in sight. Luckily, adaptogenic mushrooms combat that. For example, take our Focus blend of mushroom gummies. We utilize Lion's Mane adaptogenic mushrooms to support your focus and keep you on track for extended periods. Jam packed into highly-concentrated blends, you can get some of the major support these mushrooms provide with the sweet taste of a gummy or two.
Additionally, these benefits don't have to be catered to the recipe you're cooking. If you're aiming for better focus or more energy, you don't have to use mushrooms in a recipe that supports better sleep. All in all, both have their pros and cons. The most important factor is to consider how they impact you. Then, see which benefits you really need and what time you have allocated to cooking, since every mushroom can impact your day differently.
High in Vitamins
As natural superfoods, mushrooms are a great foundation piece for getting your daily values. Even in limited amounts you can get a huge boost to your day going with ease.
Included in the majority of mushrooms, the most common vitamins are:
On top of getting a variety of vitamins, they are highly-concentrated as well. This translates to getting a higher-volume of your needs met more easily in daily values.
Boosting productivity comes along with several adaptogenic mushrooms' linked benefits. Cordyceps, Lion's Mane, and others all can combine to help create a more productive routine in everything from getting up early to staying laser-locked when finishing a project.
Quickest Route for Adaptogenic Mushrooms to Be Added to Your Cooking Routines
With consistent meal planning, you can center each meal around the common values of starch, vegetable, and protein. With adaptogenic mushrooms, you get quality vegetable support that has a ton of versatility. For example, if you're looking for a fun snack with lunches for the kids, you can try dried out Red Reishi added to salads or Cordyceps added into your shakes.
Trying out plant-based meals can be an eye-opening experience. While you don't have to completely shift your diet tor reflect plant-based choices, it's good to at least give them a try. As a foundation piece, cooked or fried adaptogenic mushrooms can be a great starting point.
However, these can be limiting to other nutrients. Be mindful of how you incorporate plant-based meals into your diet. You don't want to just jump into them and lose out on other nutrition you're giving your body daily.
These mushrooms pair surprisingly well with desserts. Given the linked benefits and nutritional value of adaptogenic mushrooms, they make for welcome additions to adding texture, vitamins, and other improvements to your favorite dessert.
For example, here's a chocolate recipe you can give a try for a new dessert that's a little more exciting and advanced. The ingredients outside of the adaptogenic mushroom Red Reishi are super easy to find and should be a quick addition to your kitchen.
Nootropics and Supplements
Nootropics and supplements are the simplest route with the least amount of prep work and cost. Additionally, you can get all of those mushroom values jam packed into a powder, gummy, or other form.
At the end of the day, it just comes down to what you're most comfortable with. Any of these are valid options to give a try.
