Matcha and lemon is a match made in heaven. These healthy parfaits make the perfect low-carb breakfast or dessert. So what's the hype about matcha?
Green tea is well known for its myriad health benefits. Matcha is a type of green tea that is particularly high in antioxidants called catechins, and mind-calming amino acid called L-theanine. Green tea is beneficial for heart health, metabolic health and has shown to lower insulin levels in menopausal women. Thanks to the high content of catechins, it is beneficial for people suffering from non-alcoholic fatty liver disease.
I made these jars without sweeteners but you can use some powdered Erythritol or stevia drops. You can also add a few tablespoons of grass-fed collagen or MCT oil. While collagen will provide a healthy source of protein that will help you stay full for longer, MCT oil will provide a quick boost of energy.
