6. Green Tea in Instant and Rolled Oats:
Rati Beauty diet programs has a lot of oats recipes and why not, they come packed with key vitamins including thiamine, riboflavin, niacin, pantothenic acid, vitamin B and folate. They also provide a range of different minerals, including calcium, iron, magnesium, manganese, phosphorus, potassium, sodium and zinc. Oatmeal with its high fiber content keeps your tummy full for a longer period of time and you would not feel the need to snack often, which will help you avoid unwanted calories. There are some food items that make you want to eat more or make you feel hungry again shortly after finishing them, such food items are fattening. But oatmeal performs exactly opposite to it. In fact, studies have revealed that people who eat hot cooked oatmeal for breakfast feel fuller for longer and desire less food throughout the day. When you are cooking oats, adding green tea bags to the water is a great idea to add antioxidants to your oats. Green tea needs to be pure and unflavored so that the taste of the oats is not altered.

7. Matcha Green Tea Cookies:
Matcha green tea contains a higher amount of antioxidants than normal green tea. It neutralizes the effect of free radical damage, prevents premature ageing and preserves the youth and beauty of your skin. To make cookies, follow regular recipes, but do remember to add one tbsp of matcha green tea along with it to get cool green-colored cookies.

8. Green Tea Noodles:
Brew some green tea and if your noodle preparation needs water, add this instead.

9. Marinate Chicken with Brewed Green Tea:
When you are preparing marinate, add a little bit green tea water to give the recipe a boost of antioxidants.

10. Brewed Green Tea Leaves in Noodles:
Making a cheat meal this weekend? Along with the carrots, cabbage, and capsicum, also put in brewed green tea leaves for guilt-free cheat meal.
