The Benefits of Matcha Green Tea

Matcha green tea is a finely ground powder made from young, specially grown green tea leaves. Green tea (even powdered green tea) may be grown in China, Japan, and several other surrounding countries–however, true matcha is grown using a different method and is only grown in Japan. While standard green tea is grown in the sun and includes the veins and stems of the leaf, matcha green tea is grown mostly in the shade, de-stemmed and de-veined, and stored in darkness for several months to cultivate and preserve the flavor and health benefits. Matcha is higher in caffeine because the immature tea leaves used to make it contain more caffeine than the mature leaves in regular green tea.

Gluten-free Banana Cake with Vanilla Frosting

Mashed ripe bananas add moistness and natural sweetness to this decadent Gluten-Free Banana Cake with Vanilla Frosting. Ripe bananas are naturally very sweet and the perfect texture for cakes, muffins, and even banana-sweetened cookies! Overripe bananas are perfect for cakes and breads because as they ripen the starch in the banana is converted to sugar. While a lot of cakes use brown sugar, I chose to use coconut sugar or white sugar instead.

Air Fryer Shrimp (No Breading)

Here is a super easy and basic recipe for Air Fryer Shrimp with no breading that is full of flavor and perfect for tossing with cooked pasta or serving on a salad. This Air Fryer Shrimp recipe can be used in low carb lettuce wraps, on salads, in pasta, in a rice bowl, on shrimp tacos, or even eaten plain as a healthy snack. Cook in the air fryer basket for 5 to 6 minutes, tossing halfway through. Or, see my whole list of gluten-free air fryer recipes.
