MAGIC MACA BOWL
I always like to get a nice start to the day with a healthy breakfast. This Magic Maca bowl is a fall favourite and you can even stir in some pumpkin puree for a real fall feel.
Maca is an adaptogen which helps your body to adapt to or manage stress. Maca, also known as “Peruvian Ginseng”, contains 31 different minerals and 60 different phytonutrients.
It has a whole host of benefits from boosting memory and focus, increasing energy and even boosting libido! You can learn more about maca and it’s benefits here.

Let’s taco ‘bout our star ingredient cauliflower – shall we? You see what I did there?! 🙂
Cauliflower is powerful anti-inflammatory food that’s rich in choline and choline is the key ingredient that makes cauliflower such a powerful brain food. Choline helps increase efficiency in the main area of the brain responsible for reasoning, decision-making and working memory.
You’re in luck because I’m giving you a tasty, scrumptious harissa sauce to pair with these tacos but if you’re short on time you can sub it out for taco spice – but I warn you it won’t be nearly as tasty.
Harissa is a fiery and garlicky North African spice paste that’s that’s usually served with stews and bread. The main ingredient in harissa sauce is red bell peppers which are one of the top sources of Vitamin C. Vitamin C, which is actually an antioxidant is one of your brain main protectors. Some studies have shown that regularly consuming Vitamin C, [in addition to Vitamin E, and A] can reduce the speed of brain aging, lowering your risk of dementia.
