Superpower matcha vanilla overnight oats + a giveaway!
A little superpower is what I’m aiming for these days. After a very busy summer of recipe testing (and, naturally, a lot of taste testing) and photography for the book, I’m refocusing my goals for the next few months to me. That means pulling on my workout pants, fastening my workout bra (these babies need support) and tying up my running shoes. Thanks to the help of Christy, I’m hitting the gym at least four times a week and I’m feeling amazing.
They say exercise is only 20% of the equation though. Fueling your body with good food makes up for the rest.
With this new plan, I’m focusing on balancing macronutrients and, as always, adding lots of colourful veggies to my meals every day. While optimal macro ratios vary from person to person, I’m learning through meal-planning for my fitness goals that I feel my best on a plan of high complex carbs, moderately low protein and low fat.
This means I’ve been on the lookout for nutrient-dense meals and snacks to fuel my days. While Vega protein smoothies have been my recovery fuel of choice, my pre-workout meals require a bit more thought than whisking together some powder and almond milk.
Enter my superpower matcha vanilla overnight oats—a nutritious breakfast and pre-workout meal in one. It was inspired by the bag of matcha green tea powder that Kiss Me Organics sent me to try out a few weeks ago and, well, because I love overnight oats.
Did you know that matcha powder contains 137 times the antioxidants of brewed green tea? Unlike brewed tea, the powdered form contains the entire tea leaf, which dramatically increases the nutritional content. And, most importantly for me, matcha powder provides a mild, steady boost of energy as it acts as a stimulant and is ideal for helping me stay focused and get through my workouts.
But I know you’re curious about the giveaway, so here it goes: I enjoyed the Kiss Me Organics matcha powder so much, I asked the company if I could give some away to a friend—that’s you. Not only did they agree to send a bag of matcha powder to one lucky ADC reader, but they also offered a discount code for all of you to use! See the details below.
