Matcha Pistachio Protein Bites

HAPPY SAINT PATRICK'S DAY! 

Even though I am not Irish, I do love St. Patrick's Day! Nobody is ever in a bad mood on St. Patrick's Day (it may be because they have had a little too much to drink but that is besides the point). So in lieu of the holiday, I have concocted some healthy, DELICIOUS, green protein bites for you! 

You may be asking, what is matcha? Matcha is a Japanese green tea.

Amongst its many health benefits, matcha…

  • Is packed with antioxidants including the powerful EGCg
  • Boosts metabolism and burns calories
  • Detoxifies effectively and naturally
  • Calms the mind and relaxes the body
  • Is rich in fiber, chlorophyll and vitamins
  • Enhances mood and aids in concentration
  • Provides vitamin C, selenium, chromium, zinc and magnesium
  • Prevents disease
  • Lowers cholesterol and blood sugar

Matcha tea is an easy and simple way to add powerful health benefits to your everyday diet.
