Are you familiar with Moringa Leaf?
Well, I wasn’t until a few months ago.
Peter came home talking about this new superfood and to be honest sometimes I get overwhelmed with all the new superfoods popping up!
But then I started seeing Moringa at our local farmers market and that’s when I thought I better check this stuff out…
Moringa is the most nutrient-dense plant in the world! Sorry Kale ;)
It contains over 90 nutrients and 46 antioxidants!
It grows in the Himalayas and is used to fight weight-loss, constipation, arthritis, cancer, diabetes… the list goes on and on.
It tastes similar to matcha and has a grassy smell.
It mixes very well in smoothies, and teas.
I’m sure you could put it in granola, or oatmeal.
So far our favorite is in the smoothie recipe listed below :)
You can buy Moringa online or maybe even at your local farmers market.
We get ours from Raw Revelations. (A little side note: the owner and employees of this company are sooo knowledgeable!
You can really ask them any questions about superfoods… they know it all!)

I hope you give this smoothie a try, and if you don’t have moringa but have another superfood, throw that in instead!
