Our favorite new breakfast: Milk & Honey Granola “Born in Chicago’s eclectic Wicker Park neighborhood, Milk & Honey Granola has started what we like to call a granolalution – a shore-to-shore flavor revolution that’s wound its way from the menu of a boutique café to the stands of gourmet markets and the shelves of national grocers. Wherever you find the Milk and Honey label, you can rest assured there are some things you won’t find with it. No preservatives. No trans-fats. None of the fake, sounds-like-science ingredients you might find on other shelves. These all-natural blends are naturally high in fiber and antioxidants that lay a foundation for health, happiness and the pursuit of deliciousness. Dig in and discover what real granola tastes like.” www. milkandhoneygranola.com

Matcha- Organic Green Tea Powder
Matcha is a superfine green tea powder used in Japenese and Buddist tea ceremonies for centuries and now through modern technology we can see that it is also loaded with anti-oxidants. Using the testing method known as ORAC (oxygen radical absorbance capacity), experts at Tufts University discovered that matcha possesses an amazing twenty times
more ORAC than pomegranates or blueberries.
Matcha’s ORAC rating is a mighty 1300 units per gram, compared to 105 units per gram for pomegranates or 91 units for blueberries.
Matcha tea has been touted on the Dr. Oz show as a weight loss tool as it supposedly increases one’s metabolism and yet is calming. Also on Dr. Weil’s website as a tool in the fight against cancer. 1 oz- $7.99
