Matcha green tea powder is known for being mood & brain food, so I’m always trying to find ways to work it into my daily routine. Green tea has been linked to benefits such as reduced anxiety and improved attention, memory, and workout performance/ recovery.
Just a 1/2 cup of strawberries gives you about half of your daily vitamin C! Plus there’s all sorts of beneficial compounds in berries like anthocyanins that may reduce inflammation and cell damage.
