Spruts Nuts 

Spruts are the better almond! Sprouting breaks down enzyme inhibitors so your body can focus on more important things – like fighting germs or flushing out toxins. Mimicking the germination process unlocks high concentrations in essential vitamins and minerals. The result is a clean, delicious and nutritionally dense snack.FullSizeRender-4.jpgFullSizeRender-5.jpg

Meta Matcha

Matcha is the new green drink to drink nowadays. My friends at Meta Matcha were kind enough to send me their matcha powder to try out and I can’t say enough good things about it. It’s pure, delicious, and so good for you. You can incorporate it into your every day meals, whether if it’s just a glass of water, or even bake it into brownies!FullSizeRender-12.jpg

Meta Matcha’s mission is to provide a beverage that unlocks the energy within, elevating us to a state of mental clarity and self-discovery. They strive to make the Matcha lifestyle available to everyone. Their vision is that Matcha soon emerges as a viable coffee alternative and that people use the energy of Matcha to better their lives. Just as the consumption of thousands of MetaMatcha formulas has lead to the creation and growth of MetaMatcha, they want MetaMatcha to be the vessel to allow others to optimize the functionality of their lives and to exceed their potential.

What is green tea? Green tea comes from the plant camellia sinensis. Green tea is not oxidized, unlike black tea, so there is little alteration of the natural properties and flavor of the tea, resulting in increased retention of antioxidants, specifically EGCG (epigallactocatechin gallate). Matcha is a special type of green tea: FullSizeRender-4.jpg

Matcha’s unique growing process, harvesting techniques and consumption method enables it to provide superior health benefits compared to regular green tea.
Matcha’s abundant antioxidants speeds up metabolism and works at the cellular level to scrub harmful free radicals. The antioxidant capacity of Matcha is five fold more than blueberries, cleansing toxins and rejuvenating cells.
The positive effects on mind and body leads to an overall healthier version of yourself. Drinking Matcha is a lifestyle that strengthens your ability to do more, providing both energy and focus to exceed your potential.

Natures Tradition: Organic Ceremonial grade Matcha powder from Nishio, Japan –best used for lattes and beverage mixes, but can also be consumed plain with water or mixed with smoothies.FullSizeRender-5.jpg
