March is nutrition month and my team and I want to challenge you to make one nutritional change to optimize your health. Perhaps you will drink more water, stop noshing sweet foods after dinnertime or eat more leafy greens. Whatever nutritional changes you make, it all helps.
When it comes to your health, the quality of your food changes everything. This does not mean you will feel deprived by your food in any way. Eating healthy and mindfully will help you in all areas and can be easy, delicious and satisfying.
So... enjoy the amazing recipes, products and success stories below. And remember – health is absolutely the first wealth with nutrition changes topping the charts.
Wishing you best health,

Matcha green tea is by far one of the most nutritious foods available on the market! It carries a long list of wonderful benefits including boosting metabolism, detoxifying the liver and lowering cholesterol. Matcha also contains an amino acid called L-theanine which helps you to feel energetic, yet calm at the same time.
You do not need a lot of matcha to reap the benefits... one serving of matcha is equivalent to drinking a whopping 10 cups of regular green tea. Organic Tradition’s premium matcha powder comes from Tencha leaves collected after the spring harvest, offering a full bodied earthy green tea taste without the astringency or bitterness associated with late harvest Matchas. There are no fillers, flavors, preservatives, additives or sweeteners used- just 100% pure Matcha!
