Oh, and this recipe will make everyone happy…it’s paleo, primal, keto, and even vegan.  Unless you’re just not into pudding!

Magical Matcha

Matcha has so many benefits it almost seems magical.

Matcha is a finely powdered green tea.  It is traditionally whisked into hot water to make a tea.

I’ve always had a thing for mermaids…

I mean, how cool would it be to live in some underwater fantasy world?  Totally love mermaid colors and the whole vibe.

I love seaweed salad and spicy tuna hand rolls.  But my favorite way to eat seaweed is Seasnax.
