Happy Sunday friends! I’ve been so busy at the start of this fall, but everything is shaping up nicely. I’m now teaching Pure Barre as an instructor and couldn’t be more thrilled about it. It’s a part-time job for me, and I love it! It’s always a positive to turn one of your favorite hobbies into a part-time career.
With my busy schedule (I’ve spent all my free time lately studying, practicing, exercising), I still rely heavily on smoothies to get in my nutrients and energy on a daily basis. This Maca Berry Smoothie is one of my favorites. It’s filling and is loaded with disease-fighting antioxidants, healthy fats, and a superfood powder called maca that gives me loads of energy and strength (learn more about maca’s health benefits on TheWellnessWarrior site). I put it in almost every smoothie these days, even my coffee smoothies I make on the way to work in the a.m!
If you know anyone who is trying to recover from an illness, or needs an easy way to get more healing nutrients in their body, I recommend maca powder as a powerful addition to the daily diet. In a raw, organic, powder, it couldn’t be easier to add to shakes on the go.
Oh, one more thing? Want a good source to buy maca? My favorite place to pick up superfood supplements and ingredients is on the OneLuckyDuck website.
