1. Matcha!

We love the matcha infused trend as it brings so many health benefits to your everyday diet and here are a list of a few:

  • It’s packed with antioxidants like EGCg (epigallocatechin gallate) that provides potent cancer-fighting properties.
  • Boosts metabolism and burns calories
  • Detoxifies the body effectively and naturally
  • Is rich in fiber, chlorophyll, and vitamins
  • Enhances mood and aids in brain function and concentration
  • Provides vitamin C, selenium, chromium, zinc and magnesium
  • Lowers cholesterol and blood sugar

Not only do we love Matcha for its health benefits, but also as its rich green color is so instagrammable !

They are so beautiful and make you feel like you’re eating a meal made by mother nature herself.

3. Dairy Free Ice-Creams Are Everywhere! 

Dairy-free ice cream is taking over this Summer. With all of the progress in vegan and plant-based foods, it’s easier than ever to enjoy your favorites delicious treats while also being a bit healthier. Plant-based soft-serve shops often use ingredients like coconut milk, nuts, dark chocolate, and so many more. Yum!

4. Health Conscious Cocktails!

There’s nothing much better than being poolside with a cold drink, except for having a drink that doesn’t make you feel like you need to hit the gym extra hard the next day!
