Kitchen alchemy

A New Age cook­book adds spice to daily life

Northern Living - - CONTENTS - TEXT EDLAINE C. FLOR

Healthy liv­ing should not be the sole prove­nance of the elite and the se­cret to longevity should not be pro­hib­i­tively ex­pen­sive. But with the con­trast­ing de­mands of a busy ca­reer and a home life, an at­tain­able cheat sheet like Amanda Chan­tal Ba­con’s The Moon Juice Cook­book is more than handy. In fact, it counts Gwyneth Pal­trow, Jen­nifer Anis­ton, and Ali­cia Keys as fans.

Ex­plore sex­u­al­ity and cre­ativ­ity with Hot Sex Milk, a warm elixir that sends power to the right places with its unique blend of a pump­kin seed milk base, maca pow­der, ca­cao pow­der, ho shouwu, co­conut oil, schisan­dra berries, and bee pollen. The Chi­nese herb ho shouwu is more pop­u­larly known as ca­cao, and the dried schisan­dra berries from north­ern China are said to be nat­u­ral aphro­disi­acs that boost li­bido and im­prove prostate health. For some­thing more sub­tle, the Sesame Ginger Matcha awak­ens the taste buds. This moon milk is al­chem­ized from raw, silky but­ter to bol­ster the im­mune sys­tem, while matcha is an in­cred­i­bly en­er­giz­ing source of an­tiox­i­dants that is gen­tle on the adrenal glands even as it boosts me­tab­o­lism.
