Hate to use the word superfood, but in this context I'm talking about non-fruit & non-seed superfoods, suchs as maca, ashwagandha and other powders. For example, a teaspoon (7 grams) of maca contains about 5 grams of carbs. Without... (more)

Just bought a bag of maca to incorporate into my daily regimen. I have been adding 1/2 tsp to each cup of coffee, which gives me 1/3 - 1/2 tbsp each morning (2-3 cups of coffee). For one thing, it doesn't dissolve very well. I don't drink... (more)
