My breakfast routine has been the same for some time now. I have an “americano soy latte” and a huge bowl of honeydew melon, some raspberries/berries and a few walnuts or almonds. I’ll have some puffed rice cereal (usually eaten straight out of the box I’m ashamed to admit), a plain rice cake or gf waffle or toast with apple butter if I’m really hungry. Historically, the piece de resistance has been the latte which is semi-homemade affair. It starts with a 16 ounce Americano almost always from Startbucks picked up by my love after our am workouts. At home after showering I heat it up (cold coffee-not a chance!) and at sweetener and vanilla extract. Then I heat up ¾ cup of soy milk and once hot I use my handy frother to make it nice and creamy with a huge mound of froth. I pour the milk into the coffee and spoon the froth on top and sprinkler with cinnamon. Talk about heaven! However, in my efforts to put on weight, “bulk up” and have more energy I’ve started adding on a smoothie to my daily breakfast bonanza. I’ve been on the green smoothie bandwagon for some time now. I truly feel divine when I have these for breakfast I used to think it was simply the dreamy green color and uber-healthy ingredients packed into such a small glass. However, I’ve noticed that when I have one of these divine potions my coffee sits on the counter sadly only half consumed until I eventually throw it out. But I think I’ve determined why this happens-enter matcha.
I’ve been using this super greens powder and it is simply packed with great ingredients-among them is matcha.
