Recipe Wednesday: Adding Moringa to Your Routine

I just discovered something totally awesome and, maybe, even life changing...moringa powder. 

What the heck is moringa powder you ask? ...if you don't already know...


Well, moringa is a superfood, meaning it's packed with vitamins, antioxidants, and amino acids & it comes in a tasteless powder form so it's so crazy easy to add to anything...your daily water, baking, cooking, etc.  Moringa leaves are found in Asia and Africa, and have long been a medicinal resource.

Now, if you're currently riding the matcha train as many people are (myself included) do some research and you'll see that the properties of moringa may be slightly more superfood-y than matcha.  Just thought I'd throw that in there!

So what exactly is so great about moringa that I'm writing about it at this moment?  Let me give you a quick rundown of why people are obsessing over this super superfood...

Health Benefits
+ Natural Energy & Concentration Booster 
+ Helps to regulate blood sugar levels 
+ Super rich in protein (contains 15 amino acids), calcium, magnesium, iron, and potassium
Moringa has 3x the amount of potassium found in a banana and 4x the amount of beta carotene found in carrots!
+ Amazing detoxifier as it attaches to toxins within the body and flushes 'em out
+ An anti-inflammatory and antiseptic 

Beauty Benefits
+ Has high concentrations of Vitamin A, C, & E rejuvenate skin
+ Ingested or applied topically can help to calm and treat acne
+ Helps to strengthen hair follicles 

I just started using moringa and adding it into my daily routine, and I highly suggest it.  I'm still in my beginning phases of using it daily, but so far so great!  I scoop some powder in my water, stir it up, and I'm good to go- you don't taste anything at all.

I've also been reading up on different recipes that I'm looking forward to trying...especially the cheesecake, duh.  & it's so easy to add a teaspoon to any type of sauce you're making since it doesn't taste like anything.

If you're looking to add something new to your healthy you routine this spring, give moringa a try!  I order my moringa powder here from Nuts.com- it's a great price and there are different options for how much you want to order.  If you want to try out a sample before committing, it's only $3.00! 

PS: Obviously, I'm not a doctor, so you should def ask yours before adding this to your routine.
