It can be hard to keep track of all the superfoods we’re being told to eat. So, don’t forget to add maca to your smoothies (like me). I just realised it’s been a few months since I’ve used it. Though, I am a believer in diet rotation (mostly as food sensitivities can develop from eating the same food daily or frequently). But maca is great for energy levels, high in nutrients (like antioxidants, calcium and 1 tsp has 1g protein) and balances your hormone levels (important for men, too) so try to rotate it into your smoothies regularly if you can.

Maca has a bit of a nutty taste. If your new to maca and want a safe combo to try use a nut or seed butter and/or cacao powder.
