Who are Essential Living Foods...
Essential Living Foods (ELF) is the producer & importer of the products I'm writing about today. They provide the highest quality SuperFoods, foods extremely high in antioxidants and other nutrients that enhance health and performance. All of their products are carefully grown on small farms that use innovative techniques that improve their eco-systems, enhance soil health, clean up the water table, and increase biodiversity.
ELF supports this commitment to quality and sustainability by paying their farmers prices well beyond Fair Trade rates.
Not only that, ELF has partnered with other like-minded companies to create Equitable Trade, a ground-breaking organization that helps farm communities build sustainable infrastructure and social capital that will empower them for generations to come.
Members of Equitable Trade give back a percentage of net sales profits to their farming partners in order to make immediate, long-term community improvements: from off-grid technology to sustainable water development, from community lending to sustainable construction, from education to health care, and much, much more.
Maca, Lucuma, Mesquite...OH MY!
These are all very different products but all similar in many ways. They are SuperFoods. Each adding an element of sweetness to your dish. They all have varying degrees of protein, fiber and iron...plus plus plus.
Products to think about...now found at Wanigan.com
Maca Powder - This amazing super-nutrient food comes from the hardy Maca plant, which thrives high in the rugged Andes Mountains. Similar to ginseng and other adaptogenic foods, Maca's potent nutritional content enhances your ability to handle stress, while boosting energy, endurance and they even say libido.

Lucuma Powder - Lucuma (pronounced Loo - Koo - Mah) is an extremely rare fruit, grown almost exclusively in pristine regions of South America. Renowned as one of the very top desert flavors in the continent, Lucuma rivals even chocolate and vanilla in popularity. In terms of taste and texture, Lucuma has strong aromatic properties and a full-bodied maple-like flavor. (found in the 'raw foods' aisle at Wanigan.com)
Mesquite Powder - If you know Carob then you'll love its protein-rich cousin, Mesquite. It has a complex, molasses-like flavour with a hint of caramel which blends well into smoothies and Cacao or Maca drinks. (found in the 'raw food' aisle at Wanigan.com)
