Today I decided to escape Thesis World to envision myself, if but for a moment, at a beach party.
If you need a tropical moment today, put on some party tunes and try this recipe!
2 cups diced Pineapple
3/4 cup unsweetened Coconut Milk
3/4 cup unsweetened shredded Coconut
1 tbsp Maca Root powder
Coconut products improve digestion, contain antiviral, antifungal, and antimicrobial fatty acids to help to fight off viruses and bacteria, they improve the utilization of blood sugar and can lessen the symptoms of hypoglycemia, improve the absorption of calcium and magnesium, they contain elements which “support the immune system, the thyroid glad, the nervous system, the skin, and provide fast energy”, they “regulate and support healthy hormone production”,and they “increase metabolism and help with weight loss” (Wolfe 2009:205-206).
Maca Root is an adaptogenic superfood that “increases energy, endurance, oxygen in the blood, physical strength, neurotransmitter production, and libido. It supports the endocrine system, the adrenals, and the thyroid, typically improves one’s mood, and helps support healthy hormone production. (Wolfe 2009:70)”
Who can say no to a boost in energy, mood, and libido!?
