Shiitake logs: the hot new accessory for spring

In terms of having the latest new accessory, having your own shiitake log is right up there with the new McQueens or a foursquare app.
Shiitakes reduce the appearance of wrinkles and crows feet (say Japanese and Chinese researchers), and American botanists have reported that they decrease cholesterol, fight candida, inhibit the growth of cancer tumours, and have radioprotective properties: mice exposed to x-rays had a higher survival rate when shiitakes were part of their diet.
Plus, they’re anti-bacterial, anti-viral, and anti-fungal.
The beauty is that all you do is throw the log under your deck (or anywhere dark), keep it wet, and it fruits endlessly if you take care if it properly. Yes, you heard us – unlimited free organic top-quality shiitake mushrooms (store-bought ones are grown on just sawdust).
We got ours from the Young Urban Farmers – check them out here.
Shiitakes will be making an appearance at our Staying Young Retreat this year – for more info on this 5-day raw vegan vacation, visit http://houseofverona.com/retreats/stayingyoung/.
