BB Tree Matcha Green Tea Powder

I am totally obsessed with drinking Matcha and including it in my recipes when I can. I recently got BB Tree Matcha Green Tea Powder from BB Tree. This matcha powder has a strong but great taste. It’s certified organic matcha and provides health benefits including a great source of antioxidants leading to weight loss. I have tried other Matcha products and this is definitely one of my favorite powders.FullSizeRender-2.jpg

I will be incorporating BB Tree Matcha Green Tea Powder in chocolate chip cookie recipe and brownie recipe. It’s a great secret ingredient to add! Especially in smoothies and juices. I would definitely buy the Matcha powder again from BB Tree and would recommend to anyone looking to incorporate an organic kick in their diet!FullSizeRender-5.jpg

Importantly, there is NO WEIRD STUFF. Mammoth Bars are gluten-free, dairy free and soy free.  Zero fillers. FullSizeRender-3.jpg

Sprouting nuts involves a soaking and dehydration process that helps unlock the nutritional benefits of the nut by reducing the phytic acid content which in inherent (to a varying degrees) in all nuts/seeds. Phytic acid clings to other important minerals such as zinc and iron and makes them difficult to fully digest. This can create a strenuous load on the GI tract for many people. Soaking nuts greatly reduces these enzyme inhibitors, and what you’re left with is a more easily digestible nut that is crunchier and packs a more powerful nutritional punch.FullSizeRender-4.jpg
