Superfoods for fast paced living
This week is a crazy week for me so prolific blogging will not be on the cards, neither prolific cooking for anyone other than my clients.
Yesterday I was on my feet all day teaching and then ended off cooking dinner for 14 people in celebration of my dear friends birthday. A few too many glasses of bubbly and late night after a long day I need an energy boost to get me through the rest of today. I have just whipped up and am sipping on a raw cacao, maca root powder and banana smoothie. It tastes great, was quick to make and I know I am getting the natural boost I need. I think kids would love it too, cause it tastes like milk shake.
I am very into superfoods powders at the moment, when you read up about them it’s hard not to be impressed. Maca root powder sports the following list of qualities. Increased energy, endurance and strength; blanaces hormore levels; improves brain function and boost immunity. It also mentioned something about increased libido and fertility.. mmm. Wow that’s quite a few promises there packed into a packet of powder.
Raw cacao (aka raw coco powder) is a great source of magnesium, is a natural anti depressant, aids with weight loss and it’s one of the highest sources of antioxidants of any food there is. Cool.
I blended a spoon of each powder with a banana (which I had frozen), some milk and added a touch of stevia for sweetness. I should be ready to take over the world in about 45 minutes or so!
