Learn To Live Green with These 4 Go-To Recipes

Recipes
Food

You are all about that morning smoothie or weekly meal prep, but are you piling nutrient-rich greens into that daily routine? From a tasty lunch bowl full of veggies to vegan pesto for dinner, our resident nutritionist Erica Fowler is serving up some powerfully plant-based recipes to help you eat nutritiously all day long!

BREAKFAST
Mango Smoothie

Getting enough greens in a day can be challenging! That's one of the reasons I love this smoothie. It’s a great way to get the nutrients of mango and ginger with all the amazing benefits of spinach—without the extreme green taste.

LUNCH
Nourishing Green Everything Bowl

This nourishing bowl is great when made fresh, but also feel free to double the recipe and meal prep for a couple of days. This can be eaten cold or also placed back into a pan and sautéed for a warm green dish!

The perfect power ball to get you through a workout or for an afternoon snack. Hemp seeds contain amino acids and are considered a complete protein. They are also a great source of good fats and fiber!

Cha Cha Matcha Makes Moves in LA  

Food
Drink

LA has a thing for NYC foodie transplants (we’re looking at you Bluestone Lane, Van Leeuwen, and by CHLOE.). But there’s one West Coast shop that’s we’re totally obsessed with. 
 
Say hello to Cha Cha Matcha, a charming, pink-hued cafe in WeHo and Venice that’s entirely dedicated to—you guessed it—matcha. 
 

Matcha That’ll Make You Cha Cha 

Cha Cha’s backstory is even more millennial than the menu. Two NYU business grads fell in love with matcha on a trip to Japan and brought back some tea powder to NYC. With a little recipe testing and a lot of ambition, they created the matcha wonderland we now know as Cha Cha Matcha.  
 
A tea shop dotted with puns and palm trees on a pink and green palette, it’s no surprise the tropical-themed paradise was lured to the streets of LA. Not to mention its vintage retro feel and ’90s rap music blasting in the background. Nothing like a caffeine boost with a little Dr. Dre to get you in a good mood, right?  
 

#MatchaGracias 

Cha Cha Matcha isn’t just fun to say; it also has the matcha tea game on lock. Their high-quality matcha is sourced straight from Japan, and the not-too-sweet flavor tastes just as good as it looks.  
 
The menu is simple but features everything from classic drinks like a matcha latte to more unique concoctions like their seasonal Blue Drink made with collagen, blue algae, lavender honey, and milk.  
 
Non-dairy? No problem. Cha Cha Matcha also offers a list of dairy-free options that’s so extensive (think almond, hemp, soy, macadamia, cashew, coconut, and more) you may need to pause before committing to an order. But no matter what you go for, you can expect a colorful creation made with good-for-you ingredients that you won’t be able to stop sipping.  
 

Snacks + Sips For Days 

Though, Cha Cha Matcha isn’t just about delicious matcha drinks. They also whip up a mean selection of healthy bites like avocado or almond butter toast, along with sweet treats like fresh-baked matcha donuts (both gluten-free and vegan!). And like any good tea shop nowadays, there’s also soft serve.
