    Inca Inchi Powder

    With a name like Inca Inchi, who knew what I was getting myself into this week!!?? I did know however, that this powder is a plant based, high protein (60% complete and one of the most highly digestible, low irritant, highest quality available!) food so it sparked my interest! After a little more research, I also discovered it is gluten free, so it really ticked the boxes for a lot of people!

    The Inca Inchi plant is from the Peruvian Amazon Forest and it produces small nuts from which the powder is derived. Nutritionally, the Inca Inchi powder is high in omegas, which can help with joint health and muscle recovery. It is also high in vitamin A and calcium…perfect for the plant eaters out there to aid in their bone and teeth strength. 

    Inca Inchi powder can be used in a number of ways, including sprinkling it on salads, over veges or as I have used it, in smoothies. Its nutty flavour and health benefits are well worth the dollars spent.

    At Nanas, you can purchase the powder pre-packaged or in bulk (behind the counter with the other super foods). There are a heap of recipes out there but this week I have a double up for you! I made a breakfast smoothie, and also given a recipe a go from the Changing Habits website.

    It can be found at http://changinghabits.com.au/healthy-shopping/all-products/inca-inchi-powder-800g and is the Chocolate Chia Bars.

    Hope this finds you all well this week friends, love life and have a ripper day!
