View Full Version : Maca Powder
12-30-2011, 12:07 AM
My hubby and I bought some Maca powder and I was wondering if anyone on here took it as well. We really want to boost up our energy levels. He's detoxing pretty hard right now and is always tired. I have a good energy level but would like to kick it up a notch!
Any suggestions are greatly appreciated! ^_^

I drink maca powder in a morning drink, using this recipe. I used it when I transitioned off of coffee - it helped with the caffeine addiction and surely ups the energy levels :). http://www.rawfoodhomerecipes.com/2011/06/the-maca-faca/

Try it in a smoothie with bananna and almond milk soo good. I also put raw chocolate and agave.. But still very good. That will give you a buzz for sure.

I bought some powder Maca and was putting it in my smoothies, but for me it had such a strong "rooty" taste (which was something awful to me) that I discontinued it for awhile. I wasn't able to see the benefits from the short time use. Is it possible to get fresh maca? I wonder...
I would also add it to my smoothies, a lot of the time with raw cacao & I love it! And it definitely gives me an energy boost... I have run out of it at the moment, and am kind of missing it!

Thank you for the MacaFaca sounds amazing can't wait to try it!!! We bought our Maca from therawfoodworld It's from Angela Stokes. It has a rooty mushroom flavor to me thats kind of hard to take with things. I love coffee and if this will help me I'm all in!!!

I also take maca powder, but it's been a while. I put it in smoothies such as a superfood smoothie like David Wolfe talks about. But it's been a while since I've made one.
I notice huge surges of energy for me when I drink a lot of green juice.

I need to start drinking more green juices again, I do green smoothies, but not so much on the juice right now. My hubby and I were just discussing doing a juice fast next week or the week after, depending on my work. Ok I am totally hungry right now....looks at the grapefruit next to her....

I've used Maca on and off for several years...the best way to take it for me is to make a smoothie...almond milk, maca, cacao, bee pollen, raw honey or dates, frozen banana and vanilla bean or extract.........delicious...adds a malty flavor to me.
Boosts energy and balances hormones....love it~
