The Colors of December

December means cold weather and holidays to most of us north of the Equator.

The colors red and green tend to be popular in decorations as well as food. Great time to take your favorite white or yellow cupcake recipe and add a couple scoops of Matcha Green Tea powder to it. Drop a treat in the middle of each ~ maybe a red strawberry ~ and frost it with a colorful design as well. I’ve seen decorators topping them with everything from snowy coconut to warming sunflower petals.

Another December 1st world-wide trend is to panic. The holidays can be sheer madness for many of us and we treat the late December holiday feasts as something to prepare for with several weeks of grandiose attempts at fasting and binge dieting. Needless to say, your immune system will take a hard hit if you are prone to exhausting yourself in your attempts at redemption.

Matcha Green Tea is a great way to pre-tox. Nourish your body in preparation for the parties that bring you up and crash you the next day. When you’re at the party of choice and the holiday beverages that warm the adults up while driving them into completely irresponsible behavior take their toll, your body will recuperate quicker because you didn’t spend weeks ahead of time thinking you could punish your beltline into submission.

Balance yourself
as a lifestyle and don’t play the rollercoaster game with your health. You’ll be able to party longer and stronger if you eat the way you know you’re supposed to. Include Matcha GT in your beverages. Your stamina will notice the difference.


About MatchaGT by ShelleRae

Welcome! I am ShelleRae and I am very excited you are here. I joined the Smoothie Essentials team about 5 years ago now. Always health conscious and into prevention versus medication it seemed natural when the opportunity came up to take on the creation of this blog and the Smoothie Essentials blog as well. As mother to three and surrogate to many more I've practiced much of what I write on sometimes with great success and other times with a bit less. My friends and family are my test kitchen and my facts are most often from WebMD - they seem to have a fairly accurate and conservative approach. MatchaGT – the super premium Matcha Green Tea Introducing Matcha GT, the super premium Matcha Green Tea. Matcha GT is nature’s natural source of energy and antioxidants. Used for centuries in Japanese tea ceremonies, Matcha provides a powerful pick-me-up plus antioxidants and other health benefits to keep the body, mind and spirit in perfect balance. While many forms of green tea are strained or brewed, Matcha GT uses the whole tea leaf providing the full benefits and bold taste of whole green tea powder. My inspiration comes from others who also are striving to live a better life through lifestyle changes.
