pre-acai bowl discovery, I was eating not-so-well. Not because I didn’t want to eat healthily (I’m all about getting my fruits and veggies!!), I was just so focused on non-food things that I carelessly would stop by the nearest Canes and grab some fried chicken and french fries, without even thinking twice about what I was putting into my body. With all that high-carb-greasy food, I wasn’t as energized as I could have been, and I just felt downright gross. My unhealthy self was in desperate need of a makeover.

 

That’s when I found out about Vitality Bowls-home to my new fav thing, acai bowls!! Acai bowls have a smoothie-like base that is made from the acai berry, with toppings which include strawberries, bananas, blueberries, granola, honey, mint, nuts, bee pollen, hemp chia and flax seeds, coconut shavings- the sky’s the limit!

 

So you’re probably thinking, what is acai, and how the heck do I even say it? The acai (ah-sigh-EE) berry is kinda like a grape, and it is grown in tropical South America. Like many other ingredients used in the bowls, acai is a superfood- yay!! These bowls are packed-and I mean PACKED-with superfoods. Superfoods are exactly what they sound like: insanely healthy foods that give you SUPER POWERS!! When I eat an acai bowl, I feel ready to slay the day-without getting hungry again an hour later. Dr. Lauretta Ohonor, The Health Trend Doctor says that acai bowls most definitely ARE worth the hype!!  

 

here are a few health benefits of acai bowls:

 

healthy glowing skin- yes please:)

 

digestion helper- we all could use that

 

immune system booster- bye bye sniffles!

 

anti-aging- so long wrinkles!

 

energy booster-!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 

BTW: this is just about the acai!! Depending on what else you put in your bowl, there are way more benefits from all the other superfoods and fruits! TO LEARN MORE ABOUT EACH SUPERFOOD CLICK THIS

 

Oh, and not only are these bowls good for the body, they are also good for the soul!! They are sooo yummy. I can’t even explain just how good they are-so get out and try one!!

 

So let’s recap a little- we already know that these bowls are good for the body because of all the superfoods, and good for the soul because they are SO yummy. And you better believe there’s more: these bowls are so beautiful you can just snap a pic, post it all over insta, sit back, and watch the likes roll in faster than you can say acai!!!

 

The good thing about Vitality Bowls is that it is a franchise.. SO  a) they have the best access to fresh ingredients/ superfoods that you may not find at your local grocery store (I learned this from the owner, Joty) and b) you probably have one near you! If you don’t have a Vitality Bowls/ acai bowl place where you live (which I highly doubt b/c I live in Lubbock, TX- exactly, what even is that??- and WE have a place making acai bowls) make one at home so it’s totally 100% YOUR way. I’ll provide a link to the Breakfast Criminals– they know everything there is to know and have tons of recipes!!

 

Post-acai bowl discovery, I can say that they are more than just a fad- they’re fab!! I’m healthier&happier than ever-so get out there and make your life better by eating acai bowls!! Your hot&healthy bod will thank u!!!;))) Thanks for reading BB’s!!
