Carrot Cake Reishi Muffins

HEALTHY, healing, nutrient-dense, non-bloating, energy-releasing, stress-reducing, cancer-fighting MUFFINS! We wake up every day blessed being able to make our own choices and each choice rewrites our “program.” I totally nerd out on the incredible connection between what we put in our body and how feel, both physically & emotionally. Imagine pumping your body with the good stuff daily. And especially starting your day off right. We all know carrots are good for us, but here are just a few of the amazing benefits of REISHI Mushrooms:

  • Improves liver function & detoxification
  • Balances hormones
  • Balances blood pressure
  • Fights allergies and asthma

Desiree Gutierrez, the founder of Health ReMynted and Heal+Thy Woman Project, is a passionate holistic nutrition & wellness expert with an art in creating delicious, functional, and healing recipes. Her love for nutrition and cooking started as a child, learning from watching her mother heal others thru food, herbs, music, and love. She realized at a very young age that food had purpose and function, and that's where she dove into the "rabbit hole" of functional medicine. Desiree studied pre-med at The University of Texas and thru her course of studying, realized she wanted to turn her focus to nutritional health realizing how vital human health is to live a happy and fulfilling life. Being able to dance until old-age is her non-negotiable! Desiree extended her nutrition education at The Institute for Integrative Nutrition where Health ReMynted was born simply means "renewing one's health." She has been lovingly coaching and educating others on intentional eating and overall wellness in order to renew and live our best life! She does extensive work with those suffering from specific-related diseases, hormone imbalances, anxiety, and depression. Her goal is to help guide people in understanding balance and what it means to eat and live intentionally for pure bliss, all while our bodies heal and flourish! Heal+Thy Woman Project was born when she realized the immense necessity and lack-there-of in women's health and education. For months she wanted to find a new word for "healthy"--being that "healthy" has lost its value in the every-day. She woke up one morning realizing her life's passion is in the word "healthy"-- "Heal Thy". She believes that to be truly healthy we must first heal. She explains it in this way, "to have a healthy gut we must first "heal thy" gut". Heal+ Thy Woman Project has become her sole focus to guide women thru healing and becoming more connected with their own beautiful bodies!
