While you'll find cacao nibs and buckwheat noodles in most big supermarkets stores, moringa is more of an up-and-comer, so you may need to go to a health food store (or Amazon) to find it. It's a tropical leaf that's ground into a powder, and you've probably come across it in one of those gorgeous smoothie bowls that are ubiquitous on Instagram.

What's so super about it? Moringa powder is high in iron, which can help combat fatigue and foggy thinking), as well as protein and calcium.

What does it taste like? It's nut-like, with a kick similar to that of radish or watercress.
