Matcha is a good source of caffeine and the compound L-theanine, both of which have been shown to improve attention and memory, and maybe dissolve your morning brain fog. Avocado is another nutritional overachiever, full of fiber, cholesterol-busting monounsaturated fat, and a range of vitamins and minerals, including potassium, vitamin K, and vitamin C.
