I need to change the way I eat. I usually eat my dish but I don’t really drink anything. I guess it is some habit I had since I was a kid.  I was a poor kid.  I barely had enough money to order my food and I rarely had money to order any drink.  So I got used to having my food without any drink. Guess what? It’s probably a bad habit because I probably ended up eating more food than I needed.  If I drink some drink while eating, the water/liquid will help to fill me up faster, and I may consume less food.  I tried a couple of times of making a tea first before I eat my dinner. And I think it helped a bit to cut down the amount of food I had.  My favorite drink lately is the Japanese green tea powder.  The first time I had it was in a Thai restaurant in Raleigh.  It was very good but I have never gotten a chance to try it again until recently that I got a bag of tea powder as a gift from my sweet sister.  She just visited Japan.  I was happy.  I asked her how to make the tea. She told me just put a little bit of powder in a cup, and add hot water. That’s it.  But how about the residue?  She said just drink it.  It’s super convenient. No dumping tea bag or cleaning up tea leaves.  That’s awesome.  It is totally made for lazy people like me.  Besides, I just googled it and found out that tea powder has 10 times more antioxidant than regular green tea, and it can give a great detox.  With all these benefits, and my attempt to fill me up, I’m getting addicted with this weird green looking drink.  I need to find out where to buy this stuff.  I’m going to run out of it soon.

Japanese tea powder - great stuff
Very funky green drink. I love it.
