MOVE OVER COFFEE, THIS ONE WILL LEAVE YOU FEELING ENERGIZED & ZEN!
Matcha has officially become my new found love! Sorry Coffee, you’ll need to take a back seat for a while!
So why have I replaced my morning cup of jo with matcha?
Some of you know (but most of you don’t), I deal with anxiety. At times it’s worse than others but in general I’m always on the look out for things to help me find my inner zen and Matcha is just perfect for this.
It’s got about half the caffeine as coffee, is full of antioxidants, is anti-inflammatory, and contains 1 very special ingredient – L-Theanine. This amazing amino acid seems to have magic powers for me! research shows It can help with the following:
• lowers stress and anxiety
• Increases alpha waves in your brain (meaning a relaxed)
• Improves memory and concentration
• can decrease your heart rate in stressful situations (like every morning when I try to get my boys to school! )
How do I like my matcha? As a latte with a combo of almond milk and coconut milk. It’s creamy, slightly sweet, and oh so yum!
