If you read the title of this post and your first thoughts were “what the heck is a matcha”, let me explain. Matcha is a specific kind of green tea. In fact, it is the highest quality powdered green tea on the market. What makes it different – from some of the more common green teas – is that it’s made from nutrient-rich young tea leaves and it’s stone ground into a very fine powder.
Let me start by saying this, I am absolutely in LOVE with Acai (pronounced ah-sigh-ee). Why? – partly because of the intriguing name and definitely for all of the health and beauty benefits. If you’re completely new to acai, let me put you deep.
Acai, is a small, reddish-purple berry, harvested from palm trees in South America. It’s high antioxidant properties, beneficial fatty acids, and high fiber content makes it a girls best friend.
I will be honest, when it comes to healthy eating, I’ve been kinda lax for like a year or more. I was so consumed with building my biz and getting my finances in order that I kinda put wellness on the back burner. Don’t ask me why I ever thought that was a good idea?! lol. Trust me I paid for it. My little unhealthy habits resulted in me picking up some weight (which I can live with) and caused me to feel forever tired.
