Have you tried maca root powder yet? Maca root is a tuber, kind of like a potato. It is very well known as a natural energy booster. It can also help with hormonal issues such as menopause and fertility. Maca is rich in B vitamins as well. It can be pricey, but I promise that a little goes a long way, so the bag will last a long time. Kind of like chia seeds. You may even be able to buy maca powder out of the bulk bins at Whole Foods. I love putting maca powder in my Chocolate Almond Butter Overnight Oats because it adds a malty flavor that goes well with the chocolate. These Maca Energy Bites will not only give you a natural energy boost, but also a pretty good protein and fiber boost as well. If you enjoy my Maca Energy Bars, you will love these!
Did you know that eating something salty can curb a sweet tooth? I swear it works. I keep roasted pepitas on hand all the time for that very reason. If you don’t know what pepitas are, they are the inside part of a pumpkin seed. Roasted pepitas have such great flavor. Pepitas are also a great source of magnesium and omega 3 fatty acid. When made in this fashion, they can be quite addicting. My kids love them as well.
