Coffee doesn’t always do the trick. When your java isn’t jolting you, it’s probably because your body is screaming for real fuel. Reclaim your mornings (or afternoons) with food that satisfies and sustains you, like this maca mousse trifle. Also known as “Peruvian ginseng,” maca is rich in amino acids, plant sterols, vitamins and minerals. These great energizing nutrients mean you can enjoy a creamy, chocolate-orange treat whenever brain fog is bogging you down.
