I tried my first healthy acai bowl during a recent visit to my family. My sister made one for me and it was sooo good!
It was one of those things I had meant to make on my own but just never got around to. Since then, I appreciate what a good “bowl” can do and I’m hooked. You’d be happy to know you can create just about anything by mixing a few well-balanced ingredients together.
When it comes to healthy living, people still seem to associate good nutrition with dieting. But you can achieve fun, nutritious and clean eating using simple recipes. All you need is an open mind and a willingness to try new things (and to spend a little time in the kitchen).
Want to build a better meal? You might think about building a bowl.
Bowls aren’t anything that you probably haven’t seen before. What’s changed about bowls, however, is our approach to them. No longer are bowls just filled with one ingredient or one add-in. Bowls—once the domain of soup and cereal and maybe noodles—have gone both global and complex. For dinner, you might find a mashup of ethnically inspired flavors with noodles, meat, veggies, and more. And for breakfast, one of the most interesting base ingredients is acai.
The acai berry, a native of South America, isn’t added fresh; instead it is pureed or powdered and used as a base, it’s bold purple color adding visual texture and its nutritional makeup adding welcome vitamins and more. But there are some tips that you should use to make your own acai bowl and keep it healthy.
