I decided to start taking maca powder daily. “Maca has gained a reputation for helping balance hormones and reverse hypothyroidism. It is an endocrine adaption, meaning that it does not contain any hormones, but rather it contains the nutrients necessary to support normal hormone production. Maca has also been used as a way to increase fertility (and I can vouch for this personally!). It is naturally “high in minerals (calcium, potassium, iron, magnesium, phosphorus, and zinc), sterols (6 found), up to 20 essential fatty acids, lipids, fiber, carbohydrates, protein, and amino acids.” more info on Maca Powder
My new morning routine is now:
1 tbsp maca powder
1 tbsp cacao nibs
2-4 shots espresso
1 tbsp almond butter or PB2
1/2 cup coconut milk, mostly the fat
1/2 cup ice
Blend until smooth. Enjoy immediately. Kick ass.
2 great things have happened since I’ve starting this new routine. 1- I can now enjoy eggs for lunch, 2- I’ve lost a few pounds!
