I know I feel better when I toss one tablespoon of Maca anywhere.  The supplements do not work for me (perhaps because of their quality) but somehow the powder translates well into my bloodstream.  I always feel a little more ‘up’ when I include Maca in my smoothies.  I use raw Maca from Sunfoods.  Their Maca is grown at high elevations above the pollution line.  It is sun dried and has a nutty almost indistinguishable taste that goes very well with raw organic cocoa powder.  I don’t usually cook with it but I have added it to  savory guacamole – anything cold so as to keep its raw enzymatic qualities.

Maca is a root vegetable grown in the Peruvian Andes, another ‘super food’ gift from the ancient Incas like Quinoa.
