Maca’s roots go back roughly 5,000 years to the Andean highlands, where ancient Incans thrived on its vitamins, minerals, amino acids and fiber. Still not convinced of its superfood clout? Consider this: If maca was good enough for ancient warriors (with limited resources and no assistance from modern technology, of course), you can bet it’ll power you through even the toughest of days.
Rain or shine, snow or sleet, a morning smoothie infused with ROOT2 Certified Organic Maca Powder will bring out the best in you. All it takes is a teaspoon of this fine, nutrient-dense powder to make a difference.
Even when you’ve had your fill of smoothies, you can turn this, organic wonder into a healthy dessert. Simply blend maca with cacao powder, coconut oil and your favorite seeds. Divide and roll the mixture into balls for an energizing whole-food treat that travels well when you’re on the go. Pretty super, right?

Paleoista's Greens-to-Go Smoothie
Sure, you could pop into a popular juice shop and pick up a beverage to go. But and those tasty and convenient drinks are often lacking something that really matters: balance. While an all-green juice can be a smart addition to a meal, more often than not, what you’re getting is a whopping dose of sugar without any healthy fat, protein or fiber to balance it out. Fortunately, this problem is easily remedied!
By making your own smoothie at home, you’ll not only save time and money, you'll be in complete control of what goes into the blender. Here is one of my favorite on-the-go creations, which is teeming with antioxidant-rich fruits and veggies, protein-packed seeds, anti-inflammatory spices and superfood powder. You can’t go wrong with this meal that can be sipped with a straw!
Paleoista's Greens-to-Go Smoothie
8 oz. chilled brewed tea of choice (such as green tea)
1 cup raw, organic baby kale, spinach or greens of choice
1/2 small ripe organic avocado
2 large farm-fresh eggs (from pastured hens*)
1 cup frozen organic berries
1 Tbsp. maca powder
1 Tbsp. chia seeds
Ground turmeric, to taste
Ground ginger, to taste
Cinnamon, to taste
Ground nutmeg, to taste
- In high-speed blender or food processor, combine all ingredients and whiz until smooth and frothy.
*If you are concerned about consuming raw egg, they may also be soft boiled and chilled before adding to your smoothie. Alternatively, there are several good protein powder options that can be used.
