Why not try our recipe for Coconut Cream Maca Bars? If you aren’t familiar with maca, it’s a peruvian root, and it has been around for billions of years. Incan soldiers used to use maca for energy and strength prior to battle. Maca is hardy; it manages to thrive in the harsh conditions and the high altitude of the Andes Mountains. When we eat maca, that incredible life force gets passed on to us with a spark in energy and a boost in libido. It nourishes our hormones and balances our mood.
