Gluten-free, candida diet marbled matcha cheesecake recipe with My Matcha Life

There’s a phrase in French, “coup de foudre.” The literal translation is “thunderbolt,” but colloquially, people use it to mean “love at first sight” (which can sort of feel like you were hit with a thunderbolt). I tend to use it to mean “love at first taste” for foods that I love deeply, madly and truly, sometimes before I even try them. Matcha tea is definitely one of my culinary “coups de foudre.”

A few years ago when matcha was all the rage on food blogs, I vowed to sample some for myself. Based on the gorgeous, grassy green hue and slightly earthy smell alone, I was instantly in love. And while I played with the glorious green powder, trying it in everything from smoothies, to truffles, to tiramisu, to cookies, mostly, I just drank it for my morning tea. One peek at my instagram or Facebook feeds and you’ll see that the emerald beverage is a cherished staple in my life.

When I first found out about My Matcha Life, a new company dedicated to sharing matcha of the utmost quality and educating consumers about all the amazing benefits matcha has to offer (their slogan is, “It’s more than a tea, it’s a lifestyle”), I was ecstatic.

Sugar-free Favorite Low Glycemic sweeteners for the anti-candida diet

Let me tell you, when I first started the anti-candida diet back in 2009, it really felt as if the diet put a crimp in my style. As an incorrigible sweets lover, I was worried I’d have to give up sweet things forever. Luckily, that was the farthest thing from the truth: instead, I just gave up white refined sugar, and later, other high glycemic sweeteners. Instead, these days, I rely on a variety of low glycemic sweeteners instead to deliver the sweetness in my foods.
