Maca root recipes give energy and boost to your day
Maca has a strong and peculiar flavor which is not acceptable to many people. However, Maca products are offered as energy drinks (mostly recommended) or in capsules found in most health food shops worldwide, easy to prepare and with a nice taste. The most natural form of Maca is dry powdered Maca. Maca in a powder form can be mixed with fruit juice; a smoothie, protein powder and it can be consumed in between meals or added to any energy drink before a workout. To preserve all the essential nutrients, once bought in a powder form, maca is not supposed to be cooked. Cooking can destroys some of the most valuable nutrients in maca. In case a recipe requires cooking (because of other ingredients), add maca at the end of cooking process if possible. That way you achieve super nutritious results.
