I have been wanting to try Maca powder for a while. It is a root grown in the Peruvian Andes that has been said to have numerous health benefits. The benefits include increasing stamina, vitality and sexual libido! I guess that last one is an added bonus.
I wanted to try it because of the potential health and stamina benefits, but also because I am obsessed with going to Peru and thought this would bring me a little closer to that dream. That is lame, but true.

These two powders went in my breakfast smoothie along with ice, spinach, water and chia seeds. I love this flavor! But, I do think it’s distracting that it’s green, but tastes like cherry. My brain gets too confused by that… Does that happen to anyone else?
Fun Fact: Maca is considered a medicinal herb in Norway, and is not legal without a prescription.
Run: This morning I did 5.5 miles. I need to start waking up earlier to beat the heat though! It’s getting hot here 🙂
