How to eat superfoods every day

Let's face it: we all want to eat healthier, but it can be so hard to know where to begin. We hear about superfoods but don't know which superfoods to buy, how they'll taste, or how to eat them.

Add in social media influencers, the interwebs and your friends' advice and it's enough to make your head spin!

Integrating superfoods into your daily routine doesn't have to be hard. It can actually be an easy and exciting way to boost your health. Superfoods like maca, yacon, lucuma, cacao, and quinoa are packed with nutrients that can enhance your diet without requiring drastic changes. Trust me, it's more straightforward than it seems.

Here’s how you can seamlessly incorporate these superfoods into your everyday meals.


Maca, a root vegetable from the Andes, is known for its energy-boosting properties and adaptogenic benefits, which help the body adapt to stress. Here are some easy ways to add maca to your diet:

  1. Coffee: Stir a teaspoon of maca powder into your coffee. It has a slightly nutty flavor that complements the coffee’s richness and can help you start your day with an extra energy kick.
  2. Baking: Substitute a small portion of flour with maca powder in your baking recipes. Whether you’re making muffins, pancakes, or bread, maca can be easily integrated without altering the taste too much.


Yacon, another Andean root, is loved for its sweetness but has a low glycemic index and prebiotic benefits. Here’s how to try it:

  1. Yacon Syrup: Use yacon syrup as a sweetener in place of honey or maple syrup. Drizzle it over oatmeal, yogurt, or pancakes for a touch of natural sweetness without that crazy sugar spike.
  2. Salad Dressings: Mix yacon syrup into your salad dressings. A simple vinaigrette with olive oil, lemon juice, and yacon syrup can transform your salads into a sweet, tangy delight.


Lucuma is a Peruvian fruit with a naturally sweet, caramel-maple-like flavor. It’s rich in antioxidants, fiber, and vitamins. Here’s how to enjoy it:

  1. Smoothies: Blend lucuma powder into your smoothies. Its creamy texture and sweet flavor make it a perfect addition to summer fruit-based smoothies.
  2. Ice Cream: Make a healthy version of ice cream by blending frozen bananas with lucuma powder. The result is a creamy, sweet treat that's perfect for any time of day.
  3. Baking: Use lucuma powder as a natural sweetener in your baking recipes. It goes well in cookies, cakes, and homemade energy bars.


Cacao is the raw form of chocolate and is packed with antioxidants and magnesium. Here’s how to enjoy its uber-decadent flavor:

  1. Hot Chocolate: Make a healthy hot chocolate by mixing raw cacao powder with almond milk and a sweetener, like yacon syrup. It’s a comforting drink that’s provides a lil mood-boost :)
  2. Smoothies: Add a tablespoon of cacao powder to your smoothies. It plays especially well with bananas, peanut butter, and even spinach (yes, spinach!)
  3. Sprinkled: Sprinkle cacao nibs over yogurt, or oatmeal for a crunchy, chocolatey boost. I even like them sprinkled over salads!


Quinoa - you've probably heard of her - is a versatile, gluten-free grain that’s rich in protein and fiber. It’s incredibly easy to integrate into your meals:

  1. Breakfast Bowls: Use quinoa as a base for your breakfast bowls. Mix it with fruits, nuts, and a dollop of yogurt.
  2. Salads: Add cooked quinoa to your salads. It’s an awesome way to boost the protein content and add some satisfying texture.
  3. Side Dishes: Use quinoa as a side dish instead of rice or pasta. It’s perfect with stir-fries, curries, and grilled meats or veggies.

Tips for Success

  1. Start Small: When introducing new superfoods, start with small amounts to let your body adjust (!!!)
  2. Mix n Match: Try your hand in combining these superfoods in recipes. For example, a smoothie with maca, lucuma, and cacao can be nutritious + delicious! (haven't personally tried this one, lmk how it goes)
  3. Experiment: Don’t be afraid to experiment with different recipes and find what works best for YOUR taste and lifestyle.

Incorporating superfoods like maca, yacon, lucuma, cacao, and quinoa into your daily routine doesn’t have to be daunting. With these simple tips and recipe ideas, you can enjoy their health benefits while keeping your meals delicious and exciting. Happy superfood-ing!
