I have in my hands the most delicious recipe for an amazing pre or post-workout shake. This smoothie works great for a quick burst of long lasting energy, combining the powerful health benefits of superfoods with carbohydrates and protein. The maca helps to temper and balance out your adrenals, the bananas are an excellent source of quickly digestible carbohydrates (40-60 minutes), the lucuma powder gives the shake a nice caramel flavor, and the almond milk makes it super creamy and smooth. Plus, the cinnamon aids in digestion and gives it a nice little send off. What could be better?
I've been struggling for, well, EVER to find a "treat" that will satisfy my chocolate cravings that seem unabated despite doing "all the right things" in terms of foods to eat that should get rid of sweets cravings. I've even worked with both a naturopath and acupuncturist! Tonight, I hit on this tea that is so simple, I'm shocked I hadn't considered trying it before. It definitely helped curb my craving tonight, when the raw chocolate mousse I made from a recipe in the cafe Gratitude recipe book and the accompanying raspberry cashew cream topping was shouting my name from the fridge (I already ate enough today!). Let me know what you think!
