Our obsession with matcha doesn't have to stop at tea. This antioxidant-rich powerhouse has proven itself worthy by providing us with lasting, jitter-free energy, inspiring us to sneak this superfood into nearly every recipe.
But its benefits don't end there. Matcha is shown to not only energize but also simultaneously relax and focus the mind, detoxify the body, boost the metabolism, enhance mood, and provide vitamins and minerals such as vitamin C, selenium, chromium, zinc, and magnesium. It may also help to lower cholesterol and blood sugar.
So why limit your matcha intake to lattes alone? Start your day off with an energizing and restorative breakfast bread that will not only keep you sated till lunch but also provide you with focus and energy to hit the ground running. Paired with a luscious salted rose water ghee spread, your mornings will never be the same.
