Healty food are drawing my attention lately. With more and more available options here in supermarket around Jakarta, it's surely makes me excited to try more on cooking healthy food. My latest finding is Moringa powder. Have you heard about Moringa lately ? It's been called as the next Superfood !

Fresh Figs and Self-made Plates and Glass from my last Pottery Class

Moringa oleifera, is actually very common in Indonesia. We usually called it 'Daun Kelor' and we even had a proverb of it! "Dunia tak selebar daun kelor!" ( literally means "it's a small- small world" lols ). So I kind of excited how this common plant in Indonesia is actually been called as a Superfood !


I opted for a powder type of Moringa, since it's easier to mix in your daily juice or smoothies, or even, baking ! The powder is actually had that similar 'vegetal' taste of Green Tea, and it could used as natural food coloring as well. Moringa is rich in Vitamins, Mineral and Amino Acids. It could fights inflammation, toxins, free radicals, and it's been said that it could cure cancer and diabetes. Powerful huh!

So why not put some moringa powder on your pancakes or other food, right ? So without further ado, let's get cooking !
