Matcha Latte Recipe
I've known for a while that I am very sensitive to caffeine. After trying an elimination cleanse, I learned just how sensitive I was after removing caffeine from my diet for two weeks and reintroducing it. Even one cup a day can at times leave me feeling jittery, lightheaded and anxious. As a result, I've greatly reduced my intake and have explored alternatives so that I can still get that morning coffee feel.
I recently tried matcha, which surprisingly have fallen in love with. The magical benefit in matcha is its unique combination of mentally calming theanine (L-theanine) and moderate caffeine. Matcha has just enough caffeine to give me a little extra boost, but does not leave me feeling jittery. Plus matcha is loaded with antioxidants and anti-inflammatory properties that can benefit healthy skin, metabolism and immunity.
