tasteeeee so um um goood
but are these tastey bowls a good healthy breakfast op?

Say hello to açaí (ah-sigh-ee), the fruit that’s making believers of world-class athletes and health-conscious people everywhere. Grown in the Amazon rainforest, açaí is truly a gift from Mother Nature. It has a rich, berry-cocoa flavor that makes it taste amazing, and its packed with more antioxidants than blueberries or pomegranates, plus loads of healthy Omega fats, protein and dietary fiber.

at my favorite breakfast spot the serve ACAI BOWLS
as a breakfast special
so my friends and clients always ask me
"is an acai bowl totally bad for you?"

let's break it down
ACAI has many many benefits
frozen acai....sorbet has some added ingredients
such as evaporated cane juice & tapioca syrup
but they increase your sugar intake
if there was a preferred time to eat this yummy treat
the morning or early afternoon would be it
to eat fruit sugars....any sugars after 2pm
is not recommended
in the bowl itself you have the sorbet (with added sugar)
then added fruit (that contains sugar)
& the granola (carb.....SUGAR)
sugar overload in the AM will lead to later repetitive crashes.

solution if you just have to have it
ORDER 1/2 a bowl
i do it ALL THE TIME
think it needs to be called
and have some protein first
order your eggs and veg
and have your 1/2 bowl with granola

can you dig!?

my fav thing to order these days from flake

THE VEG Sausage Sandwich
i get it sans bread & cheese
whites instead of whole eggs
add avocado
and the greek wrap dressing for my greens on the side
(i told you i am a pain in the ass)

it is basically an egg white scramble(protein)
with diced tomatoes & veggie sausage(carbs,carbs)
greens on the side(carbs)
& add avocado(healthy fat)
and i am a happy camper
you can have toast....1 piece
but they dont do the gluten free or i would
shhhhhhhh..........SOMETIMES i eat the toast and pretend not to notice
i usually figure it out later

see you at flake X
