Please pledge! HIBAKUSHA


Please pledge to the HIBAKUSHA project from Steve Nguyen's film which was "inspired to bring awareness to the Hiroshima & Nagasaki bombings in hopes that nothing like this will ever happen again and over time, show tremendous forgiveness after these terrible incidents occurred. This project will commemorate the 66th Anniversary of the bombings and is dedicated to the Association of Hiroshima & Nagasaki A-bomb Survivors."

As Southern Albertans, we have a close connection to the Japanese community. Let's do our part to showcase this moment in history.

Please pledge to the HIBAKUSHA project.

Matcha (Green Tea) Protein Shake

We had a customer come in and he wanted 3 cans of matcha and I was curious what he was using it for ... because he didn't look like the "typical" type for a green tea ceremony or making mochi cakes that most Japanese make around this time of the year. So a brief dialogue between myself and the customer, we'll call him Mike:

We carry Matcha in either sealed aluminum cans or re-sealable pouches

Mike: Hi could I have 3 matcha please?

Me: 3?

Mike: Yes, correct!

Me: Oh wow, a lot of baking for Xmas?

Mike: Me? No...

Me: Ok, then what are you using it for? Green tea?

Mike: Kinda, well I use it in my protein shake. It works well and gives me a boost of energy rather than a shot of ...

Me: Oh how interesting! It must be really healthy!

Mike: Yeah for sure, I use soya milk instead of milk milk!

Me: I definitely have to blog this ;)

Mike: Cool! Cheers!


Mike also shared with us his own protein shake recipe. Here is what you need:

1/4 tsp matcha powder

1 1/2 cup soya milk

1 banana

1-2 scoops of whey protein (vanilla or natural)


Add all ingredients into blender (we like to use our bullet)! And voila instant morning shake!
