1.12.18


Hiya! How are you, guys?! I hope you're feeling great and enjoying this crazy-busy but fun November! Here I come with another post for our "Implementing Superfoods Series"and if you are new to the series or haven't read about it yet and want to understand a bit more what superfoods are and how they can help your body and general health, you can have a look at part 1 and part 2 of the series here and here

The goal of these series is to guide you on how you can use these foods and implement them in your cooking in a less complicated process. Because healthy doesn't have to be complicated! So let me know if there is any superfood, in particular, you want to know more about and how to use it in your cooking.

So as in my previous posts, I always start with Turmeric, and yes I can stress enough how beneficial this ''Amazing Spice" is! You'll become a fan too if you haven't already after reading some of its health benefits and trying this incredible-delicious "Turmeric, Banana, Ginger and Maca Smoothie" here.

But today I will make this post short and sweet and go straight to the recipes! Since I've already told you about the health benefits of Turmeric and Ginger in part 2

So today I will share with you some health benefits of the Matcha powder!



Matcha: meaning "powdered green tea leaves" is a green tea — but is not the same as "green tea".
Matcha tea is traditionally from Japan and has plenty of fiber, chlorophyll, vitamins and is also full of antioxidants known as catechins which can fight and prevent diseases. Matcha has the ability to enhance memory and concentration and can provide the body with energy, calmness, and relaxation. Pure Matcha has a rich and strong flavor and you can be dissolved either in hot water or warm milk.
