Welcome to a new year. A fresh new start. Many have made resolutions. Many have not. I am more about starting new habits. They say it takes about two weeks to start forming a habit and two more for it to really stick. Why not try a resolution booster? Matcha is a powdered green tea loaded with compounds that can help you on your quest to keep your goals. Just one cup contains ten times the nutritional value of a cup of regular green tea.

Matcha contains vitamin A and C, selenium, chromium, zinc, potassium and magnesium, and has been shown to help fight cancer, reduce the risk of disease and battle infection. It's packed with L-Theanine, an amino acid that acts as a mood enhancer, reducing stress and relaxing the mind. Unlike coffee, Matcha releases caffeine to the bloodstream over an extended period of time giving you alertness without the jitters. 

I started making matcha part of my morning routine many years ago and never looked back. Once I created a matcha making area in my kitchen, I was good to go! This year I am trying to spend less time on social media. I want to read more, write more, and listen to more audio books. The good news is that I can do all of my new habits while drinking matcha. What new habit will you begin this year?
