New “trys” and Must “buys”

Been doing a lot of research on some items and made a purchase today

I bought some Organic Maca Root Powder. This is a GREAT site that offers the benefits to this wonderful root. I have read that you need to listen to your body, not the label recommended dosage. If you have never taken it before, take half of the dosage. I also read somewhere else that you can cycle yourself as well, ex 5 weeks on 5 weeks off. Just depends on your body. Like any other medicine or herb; do what is best for YOU! I’m taking it for  a couple of reasons; thyroid, libido,energy. Read up on it! I will update later how I feel! Today was the first day!

I still love this stuff! I mix it with my protein powder and let me tell ya…it cleans you out and gives you a great boost of energy. I am a firm believer in  wheat grass!

Next on my list of must buys is Coconut Oil. I’ve been watching and reading about the benefits and risks, etc. But when I saw that it can help zap belly fat better than Olive oil in cooking…I’m going to give this a try for myself!

I’ve had this in my cabinet for awhile but HATE the taste…but like the benefits I’ve read. So am doing 1 TBS of this each night as well.

And of course this for AFTER my comp!

    One of my buds is sending me some Maca Powder. I can’t wait to try it. I hope it does all the things it says.

    You know I LOVE ACV! If you mix it with stevia and lemon juice it is much more tolerable.

    I make lots of stuff with coconut oil. Pancakes, fish, cookies….healthy of course. 1 tbsp almond milk, 1/2 scoop pp, and 1/2 tsp of coconut oil. Mix into a paste and flatten like a cookie. Microwave for 40 secs WOOHOO!

    Thanks for all the great advice. I’m always looking for information about thyroid issues (still working on a diagnosis) and energy. It’s nice to read something with real product experience. Thanks Marissa!

    I think I must be the only one on the planet that actually likes ACV. I can do it like a shot! I do chug water afterward, though…it kinda burns my throat, but i like the taste. I know….I’m odd!
