It’s Brunch Time…
Happy Saturday!! You guys the struggle is real with this routine thing. I feel like my brain is still on holiday mode. I’ve been getting organized but I’m still having a hard time getting my ass back into the hustle. Maybe this is a good thing to some point. I was a crazed lunatic before the holidays and now I feel like I can finally breathe and relax. OK, so now it’s January, and I have a ton of healthy recipes for you guys! I know we are all about getting back into a healthier lifestyle, including myself. Speaking of healthy, if you haven’t jumped on the matcha craze bandwagon yet, you really should. Matcha is a form of green tea but it’s grown and prepared differently which gives it all the health benefits.
Besides having an Instagram worthy latte, matcha is soooo good for you! It’s an antioxidant powerhouse. One cup of matcha tea is equal to 10 cups of regular green tea in the antioxidant race, plus it contains caffeine to give you that boost you get from your morning coffee. Also you can cook with it to get the same health beneifts without having to drink it if you aren’t a fan of the taste. I love adding it to breakfast foods, like waffles. So I have to tell you guys these matcha waffles turned out so freaking good. I knew the waffles would be good, but not this good. 🙂 Hubs devoured it and I followed in polishing off my own waffle. It’s super easy to make and it’s nice to make when you have guests over since it’s a little unexpected.
One of my favorite things about the weekend is brunch and these waffles won’t disappoint. So now you can still enjoy your waffles without the guilt. 🙂 You can get some of this matcha at 20% off right now at Deliciously Matcha with code: MATCHADISCOUNT. Have a great weekend everyone!
