Rawnola® Bars and Cereal

Rawnola® is the brain child of raw food chef and expert Jake Hopkins. Boy are we glad he took the time to craft these this tasty product line. Seriously have you tried any of these amazing products?They are all very tasty, light, crunchy and easy to digest.

Jake Hopkins is a fellow desert dweller and good friend of Zebra Organics. His Goji Bar was our very first product, so as you can tell we have a fondness for him and his creations.

What I absolutely love about his creations is their taste and texture. If you have yet to try just one then you should pick up a bar on your next order. They are light and crunchy, which is a wonderful combination, they are sweet but not too sweet and they digest well. If you find texture satisfying then you will delight in all the Rawnola® products. And, the subtle blending of spices is perfect, not overbearing and easy to enjoy. Unlike most raw cereals and products out there Rawnola® does not contain any buckwheat.

Sprouted buckwheat I find hard to digest, it has a somewhat abrasive quality on the stomach. Where as the raw sprouted almonds are light almost flaky, this makes for a nice bite and good body.

Two Delicious Varieties of Rawnola® Cereal to choose from

Raw Cacao Rawnola® I can almost guarantee you will love these cereals. If you ever were a fan of chocolate cereal as a kid, then you are in store for a treat my friend. The Heirloom Cacao Rawnola® is hands down the very best Raw chocolate cereal on the market. This may sound biased but its true. This is our business we should know and we stand behind the quality of the products we offer. And if chocolate is not your thing then try Vanilla Rawnola® an equally delicious variety of Rawnola®.

Theanine, Matcha and Relaxation

Who could not use more relaxation in their life?  Relaxation, that space between things, that space we do not rush to fill, that space we savor and is seemingly in short supply.  Relaxation is both something we do and a way we are; as one can be relaxed in the midst of activity. Relaxation is a state of mind that also has bio chemical components. 

We will focus on the more tangible physical aspects to relaxation and how a certain tea can help us into a relaxed state of mind.  We will focuse on Matcha, a powdered form of Japanese green tea.

Matcha

Ritual
The popularity of matcha has sky rocketed in recent years and for good reason, it is highly nutritious, versitile, tasty and rich with ritual meaning.  Ritual, a time set aside and a space outside of the normal routine.  Rituals give added meaning to life as they are moments in time that will never be experienced again.   Matcha is key to Japanese tea rituals which are designed to evoke harmony, balance, beauty and zen.  Could the popularity of matcha be due to the fact that we as a society crave more of harmony, beauty, balance and meaning?

                     





Antioxidants
Another reason for the popularity of matcha is the tangible health benefits we feel when we consume it. Matcha contains up to 130 times more of the antioxidant EGCG than regular green tea.  This is a staggering increase making matcha a worthy substitution for bagged green tea.  It is also rich in chlorophyll, which cleanses and freshens the body from the inside out.

Theanine
Matcha also contains theanine, as does all tea from the camilla family which includes green, black, white and oolong. While found it all teas, Japanese green tea seems to have the highest concentration of  the amino acid compound theanine.  This unique amino acid has a distinct relaxing effects on the brain without causing drowsiness and counters the unwanted side effects of caffeine.

Alpha Waves and Neurotransmitters*
Theanine also promotes alpha wave production in the brain.  Alpha wave activity is associated with relaxed focus and concentration.  Alpha wave brain states assist with studying, meditating and learning.  Theanine also increases brain serotonin, dopamine and GABA levels, these neurotransmitters contribute to maintaining a feeling of well being. Studies in Japan have found  theanine reduces both physical and mental stress response and supports the immune system by boosting gamma delta T cells.

                       
Good Alternative
The health benefits of matcha make it a great alternative to common green tea. Also unique is that this tea safely provides the body with both stimulation and relaxed focused concentration.  Consider adding matcha to your daily ritual and experience the benefits the Japanese have known about for centuries.
