A healthy addition to any recipe
on September 26, 2013
I discovered lucuma's health secrets by reading endless resources online, and let me tell you, this is a superfood that truly rises above all others. It's also a type of 'green' but fortunately doesn't have a strong aftertaste or adverse affect on the gut that could create unwanted reactions. Lucuma is good stuff and really should be incorporated into your diet. It lives up to all it's touted, and does provide endless benefits. I'm a strong advocate for smoothies, and my husband and I make a concoction of various superfoods and fruits to create what we call the 'superfood smoothie for longevity'. It's amazing how well a banana can mask unpleasant aftertastes from some of the greens and various herbal additions, but it also makes many of these very healthy plants palatable and easy to digest. Nobody enjoys forcing themselves to eat something that has a strong taste or is unpleasant. They want to enjoy their healthy superfoods, but not everything can be eaten with great pleasure like blueberries and tart cherries. Certain herbs simply must be in powder form and take on a different affect that can leave a strong aftertaste. I know of some people that love crunching on their kelp 'crackers', but I gag at the thought. I know it would be good for me, but I simply cannot stomach a fishy taste or aftertaste. So having something as valuable as lucuma arrive in a powdered form allows us to add it to a recipe that is tasty, easy to make, and refreshing. We get all the health benefits without having to pinch our noses to force it down. I highly recommend this superfood to all that enjoy being healthy and want to aid in their immune system's ability to fend for itself. It is excellent! This company produces a pure and organic version, an additional reason as to why we selected this label.
