Matcha Magic

Matcha Magic

 

For those of you wanting a clean alternative to coffee. Matcha is an amazing swap, it is made up of the entire green tea leaf grounded down to a powder. By consuming the whole green tea leaf you are getting 10 x the antioxidants of normal green tea with just 1 tsp of Matcha powder. We need to have a diet high in antioxidants to help combat when we are stressed or in polluted environments. 

The caffeine in Matcha is a source of nutritional energy, the body's reaction to the caffeine in Matcha is very different to that in coffee and energy drinks. When caffeine binds with the antioxidants it slows down the release of caffeine into the blood stream, creating a longer amount of sustained energy ( 4-6 hours ) as opposed to coffee in 1 hour. 

The benefits of Matcha for your health are amazing... 

  • switching to high grade ceremonial Matcha from coffee will help reduce anxiety, jitters and insomnia 
  • helps to increase your metabolism and fat burning power, due to the thermogenic properties in Matcha ( increasing the heat in your body ).
  • sustained energy and focus for 4-6 hours.
  • for a breakfast bullet proof option ( like the one I made in the image )  - add 2 tsp of cashew or almond butter, 2 x tsp coconut oil, 2 tsp of coconut butter, 1 tsp of collagen powder. 1/8 tsp holy basil powder ( optional this is an adaptogen for energy ).

 

I buy all my Matcha from here

The highest quality Matcha is exclusively grown and produced in the rolling hills of Uji, in the ancient city of Kyoto, where Hibiki-an is located. Their service is amazing, shipping is very reasonable and the quality is outstanding. 

I also buy these travel pack sachets from Hibiki-an for when I am on-the-go here 

 

My morning BULLETPROOF match recipe

Ingredients

1 1/2tsp matcha (house or celebration)

1 1/2 x cups of hot water

2 x tsp of coconut butter

1 x tsp almond or cashew butter

1/4 tsp fresh vanilla bean paste

1 x tsp of collagen powder

1/4 teaspoon of holy basil powder or other adaptagen

1/2 tsp of macca powder

Directions

Blend all the ingredients in a Vitamax for 45 seconds

 

Last note: I avoid ALL of the Matcha's on i-Herb.com ( I have tried them all ). A lot of them have cheaper rice fillers to bulk out the tea, and are a sludge green colour and not the bright vivid green it should be. The price is more at Hibiki-an but trust me it's SO worth it. And this isn't a sponsored post. Just me sharing the real Matcha love to you all !
