Happy Wellness Wednesday my lovelies! I have received so much feed back from y’all asking for more health and wellness content. Im excited to say I am starting this health and wellness series every Wednesday!
It will be a place where you can find health tips, easy fitness exercises, self care + self love tips, healthy living with psoriasis and so much more.
My very first post in this series is brought to you by @theweirdough. She talks about the health benefits of the superfood maca powder and why you should include adaptogens to your food and drinks.
What are adaptogens? They are foods that naturally heal and help your body manage stress, among many other health benefits. Some really popular adaptogens with many health benefits include: maca, licorice root, and ginseng. Maca has been an adaptogen that has received a lot of popularity lately. It’s a root that has been dubbed as a superfood.
This is extremely beneficial for those of us living with psoriasis because stress has been reported to be a major trigger for most of us. I know it is for me. So the health benefits of incorporating adaptogens into my daily life is a huge plus for me.
The health benefits of maca include improving skin health, managing stress hormones, and providing the body with many nutrients and minerals. In powder form, it is very versatile. Maca will give your foods and drinks a caramel-like flavor, which goes well in baking and coffee drinks.
Below is one of her go-to latte recipes when she wants to relax while giving her body the extra health benefits that it needs.
