Dr. Brew Kombutcha

Brew Dr. Kombucha is produced entirely in-house, leaf to bottle. After they brew their recipes of organic tea and dried herbs, roots and fruits, it takes about two weeks to complete the probiotic fermentation process.FullSizeRender-19.jpg

The flavors stand on their own, balancing the right levels of sweet and sour that make well-made, traditional kombucha so interesting. Every bottle of 100% raw Brew Dr. Kombucha hosts billions of naturally occurring probiotics including beneficial bacteria, yeasts, and organic acids (acetic acid, lactic acid, gluconic acid, glucuronic acid and propionic acid).FullSizeRender-24.jpg

Every batch of Brew Dr. Kombucha is crafted from the beginning. They start with the same high-quality organic teas we serve at our Townshend’s Teahouses and add only organic botanicals (dried herbs, roots and fruits). It’s a no shortcuts, whole ingredients approach that we have stayed true to from the beginning. The resulting flavors are clean and balanced – neither overwhelmingly vinegary nor cloyingly sweet. And as no juices or other flavors are added, Brew Dr. is an honest and authentic 100% raw kombucha with the most naturally occurring probiotics possible.FullSizeRender-17.jpgFullSizeRender-25.jpg

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

Mammoth Bars – No Weird Stuff

It’s hard to find the perfect bars that is organic, healthy, and doesn’t have all that weird stuff in it. Mammoth Bars does exactly that! All Mammoth Bars flavors are certified organic and free of harmful additives. They are cleaner & more nutritious. Of course they are low in sugar and high in protein. 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

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
