Eat Right

Can't live without coffee? Try this healthy alternative!

If you've been wondering what those masterfully crafted Instagram posts with thick green bubbling substances sitting in their mugs are, you're not alone. Sage green ice cream cones, macaroons, donuts and more have been popping up everywhere as of late. They're all part of the recent matcha craze that has been spreading like wildfire on the health scene. 

So what *really* is it? Matcha is just finely ground green tea. Intead of putting tea bags with leaves and herbs into hot water to make your fave green tea, you're literally just eating the green tea leaves. Becuase you're getting a more concentrated version of the green tea leaf, this superfood is high in vitamins, nutrients and antioxidants which are great for your body.

If you can't surivive a morning without coffee or hot tea, matcha is a healthy caffeinated alternative that also has major benefits for your health. Even if you don't require a hot drink to get your day going, you can still enjoy matcha's savory green tea flavor with one of the recipes below.
