Happy New Year! 2018 is going to be a wonderfully gracious year. It’s the time of year to create goals and good habits, a time to cleanse and renew and to make better choices. For me it’s always been a time of reflection. Can I be a better version of myself? The answer has always been, yes. So this year my New Year’s resolution is self-love.
While finding space to love and cherish myself more, I stumbled across some amazingly healthy superfoods! I will share them all with you and their benefits in future posts. Today I would like to share one in particular. Maca.
Some of you might already be familiar with this amazing plant. For those of you that are not, maca has been used by the indigenous people of the Andes Mountains for thousands of years. The Inca warriors would chew maca to increase strength and stamina! The maca root has a ton of health benefits! Too many to list here, but click on this link to see what benefits WebMd has listed.
I can tell you first hand my experience with this amazing root. Unfortunately, I learned by trial and error. Word of advice, do not use this superfood before bed time, unless you would like to be up until 4am! (I did, however, get some good research in) In all seriousness, I am able to function throughout the day without my usual 32oz coffee. Yup that’s right, 32 OUNCES!!! Sheesh. I have been mixing this little superfood supplement in my Matcha Tea Lattes since I received it right after the New Year! Its nutty flavor adds the perfect touch to this delicious drink. For the recipe, check out Whitespace + Wellness!
I hope you discover all the benefits of this amazing plant!
