Wellness Tip:

Include adaptogens to your food and drinks. What are adaptogens? They are foods that naturally heal and help your body manage stress. Some really popular adaptogens 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. The 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 flavour, which goes well in baking and lattes. Below is one of my go-to latte recipes when I want to relax and do a little something extra for my body!
