Almonds also have fewer calories than most other varieties of nuts (just 163 calories for 23), they are also packed with fiber and vitamin E. The International Journal of Obesity, found when people added a daily serving of almonds to a low-calorie diet they lose more weight than those who followed the same diet but ate a carb-heavy snack such as crackers instead.
2) Black Beans
These guys are a member of the pulse family, and have been shown to help burn calories, reduce belly fat, and suppress your appetite. One cup of black beans have 15 grams of protein with none of the saturated fats you often find in other high-protein sources, like red meat.

What does matcha taste like, You ask?

what-matcha-taste-like
Almost everyone wants to find a way to be a little healthier. With matcha green tea you can definitly improve your overall cardiovascular, skin and metabolism health. Only thing stopping most people, is wondering what the green powdery stuff taste like.  
If you thought about trying matcha but just can cause you don't know what to expect for the taste you are not alone. But if taste is what you are after trust us matcha is worth the taste. Also there are different types of matcha and they types will give you different tastes. 
1) Ceremonial matcha and its taste
Ceremonial matcha is the highest quality of matcha and because of that has the smoothest taste. It resembles the flavor of green tea but just a little stronger. If you are a fan of the taste of green tea you will love the taste. Only thing is the cost of Ceremonial matcha is a lot higher than other types of matcha but the taste is superior to all other matcha tea.
2) Premium matcha and the taste
Premium matcha is a step below Ceremonial matcha but it has a slightly grassy taste. To the  new matcha drinker you will not even notice a difference. For a matcha drinker that wants to get the best price and quality, premium matcha tea is the way to go. It is less expensive and the quality of health benefits are the same as Ceremonial and the taste is basically the same. Can't forget you also get about double the amount for the same cost of Ceremonial matcha. 
3) Flavored matcha and the taste
Flavored matcha tea is fairly new and most people haven't even heard of it. Flavored matcha comes infused with fruit extract and most contain a little cane sugar. For a sweet matcha iced tea this is amazing. Flavored matcha is by far the best tasting, but you lose a little of the health benefits because cane sugar is added. Just imagine green tea infused with your favorite fruit, that is what flavored matcha tastes like. The good thing is that cane sugar is all natural and not refined, so it is not as bad as other sugars. If you are looking for just a great overall drink, and not worried about the sugar, you will fall in love with flavored matcha. It's great for Lattes, Cooking and Iced Tea. 
Well I hope this helped you get a better idea of the different tastes of matcha.
Give matcha a try, I'm sure you will enjoy it.

Refreshing Hot or Cold
I had never tried matcha, but is is surprisingly pleasant and refreshing hot or cold. -Stephanie

DELICIOUS RASPBERRY FLAVORED, green tea benefits! I will buy this again!
YUM! YUM! Matcha powder is basically high quality, dried, crushed green tea leaves. The raspberry added is very natural tasting, not fake or imitation. This stuff I delicious in hot tea, but I really enjoy making smoothies out of it. Or just shaking it up with almond milk. It had great green tea flavor and its full of health benefits! Love it! and I especially love this raspberry blend! -CARRIE

Very Yummy Matcha Tea

One thing I love the most about this matcha, is that it's pre-sweetened, but not too much so, so it already has a perfect balance of flavor when you make it. I predomenently use this as an iced tea, by adding it to a water bottle, or by putting it in a mason jar with water. You just want to make sure you put it in a container that has a lid so you can shake it nicely. The raspberry flavor is a nice touch to give it a nice smooth flavor. I would recommend this to first time matcha drinkers as an introduction to matcha. - JESSICA

3 Ways This Green Powder Can Reduce Heart Disease

 healthy-matcha-green-tea-powder-weight-loss-organic

 

With growing consumptions of fatty foods and working stressful careers, heart disease has become the leading cause of death for men and women worldwide. A lot of factors contribute to heart disease, from weight, diet and family history. But in Japan, they have been drinking a little green powder for over 500 years and it can reduce the risk of heart disease with 3 important factors.

 

3 Factors That Help This Green Powder Reduce Risk For Heart Disease

 

  • This green powder is loaded with Saponins. Saponins work to lower the absorption of cholesterol and creatine in the body. In return this increases the good (HDL) cholesterol in your blood. Cholesterol is an important piece to heart health, but just not any cholesterol, lowering bad (LDL) Cholesterol and increasing good (HDL) Cholesterol is key. LDL Cholesterol clogs the arteries and blocks blood flow, while HDL Cholesterol works to clear the body of artery clogging plaques.

 

  • Uses the amino acid L-theanine to relieve stress. The mental strain on your body is as important as the physical strain. Keeping your mind in a relaxed, calm state of mind will aid in having a healthy heart. The strain of everyday stress has been seen to contribute to high blood pressure and even stroke. L-theanine helps the brain produce GABA and Glycine neurotransmitters. Both have been found to reduce anxiety and stress signals in the brain, which in turn will have a positive effect on your heart and stress level.

 

  • Its Polyphenols will help your circulation and blood flow. Not many people know of Polyphenols but they work to relax your blood vessels and ease blood flow. Since the heart is the fuel bump for the body it’s vital we keep our vessels and the blood flow smooth.

By now you’re probably wondering what is this mysterious powder that sounds so wonderful. Well, before I introduce you to this superfood here are a few things people have said about it.

 

“This stuff actually tastes good, helps your immune system and helps us lose weight.”

 This Mystery Powder Is……..

 

So let me share with you this powder, it’s called Matcha . Most people have never heard of Matcha and that is fairly common. Matcha is a powdered form of Green Tea, it has been used in Japan for over 500 years. (No wonder the Japanese have one of the longest life expectancies.) Unlike regular green tea with matcha only the top tea leaves are used in the tea. The tea plant is covered with a tarp for 3 weeks, this produces extra chlorophyll and gives the tea leaves a vibrant green color. After the 3 weeks the top leaves are plucked from the tea plant. Then the leaves are ground into the fine powder we know as matcha.

 

With matcha you consume the entire tea leaf, not just the minerals you get from steeping tea like you do with a tea bag. Matcha is the champagne of tea, and its health benefits prove it.  

  • Can reduce blood pressure and Improve Heart Health
  • Packed with antioxidants including the powerful EGCg
  • Boosts metabolism and burns calories
  • Detoxifies Body effectively and naturally
  • Calms the mind and relaxes the body
  • Rich in fiber, chlorophyll and vitamins
  • Filled with vitamin C, selenium, chromium, zinc and magnesium
  • Lowers cholesterol

 How To Use Matcha

The best way to incorporate matcha into your diet is basically anyway that is best for you. Since Matcha is powdered that’s even more of a reason to give it a try. You can drink matcha as a tea just mix 1 teaspoon with 6-8 ounces of water. Or you can add matcha to your favorite smoothie, shake or anything you cook with. I personally like to make ice cream and lattes with mine. Tasty and healthy is a combo you can’t beat.

 

Make Me Healthier

 

In today’s world its getting harder to make healthy choices. With a Starbucks and McDonalds on every corner salty, and sugary foods are just a drive thru away. We all want to be healthier but sometimes a healthy option is just not available. At least with Matcha you can always have a healthy powder to add to water for a healthy beverage. Or you can add matcha to smoothies or shakes to give them a healthy boost. I say give Matcha a try, this little step can have a bigger impact on your health then you know. 

Try Matcha and Experience its health benefits for yourself.
