Winter is really here! I was actually delighted to see the snow. I bundled Abigail up and put her outside while Cody shoveled the walkways. Even though I don't like the cold, I thought of the positives to why we need snow. And just the shear happiness on my daughters face while she brought her cold hands to me to warm up made me smile.
I thought about the rest the land gets, the moisture and beauty the snow brings for the Spring and the abundance of wonderful produce we get even in our tiny little growing season. I also think about how winter time is a time of rest for us. A time to slow down, relax and soak in some deep sleep. I learned a lot from Paul Nison's message while he was here. He called me a few days later and we got to chat a bit more on the importance of sleep. I encourage to do your own research and learn all the amazing health benefits of good quality sleep, especially getting to sleep prior to 10 pm. And for those that can not sleep, it is the beginning stages of disease. Your body is telling you something, listen and be proactive.

Is finally back in stock! MacaPro Xpresso is a coffee alternative made from a blend of dry maca roots, perfectly grinded to brew an excellent drink every morning but without the caffeine!
MacaPro Xpresso can be used in a standard drip coffee maker to make a warm beverage substitute for coffee. Measure and use just like coffee. We sell this to assist people in transitioning away from coffee use and caffeine consumption. Whole maca is ground into granules and then lightly dried. Maca is caffeine and simulant free yet it can give you energy even in its dried form. Other benefits can be seen related to its adaptogen qualities.
