The Ultimate Açaí Bowl

The Ultimate Acai Bowl - a delicious and nutrient-dense breakfast | #paleo #vegan #healthy

If you’re maladjusted to heat like me and are jonesing for ALLTHECOLDFOODS, I have a chilly breakfast to whet your whistle. It is basically the mother of all açaí bowls…fully-loaded, packed with nutrients, easily customizable, sexy as can be.

We’re no stranger to the açaí bowl here on The Roasted Root..I posted my Apple Walnut Acai Bowls, Kiwi Strawberry Acai Bowls and finally, my Chocolate Banana Acai Bowls umpteen years ago, and it’s been quite a while since we’ve re-visited the subject.

New to the concept of the açaí bowl? I’ll give you the quick run-down. Açaí berries come from Brazil and are full of antioxidants, omega fatty acids, B vitamins, vitamin K and fiber. Açaí bowls are thick smoothie bowls made with frozen açaí berries, are topped with all sorts of goodies and served at various cafes nationwide. BUT great news! You can make them at home easy as 1-2-3.

Mango Edamame Quinoa Salad - a nutritious side dish perfect for sharing with friends and family #vegan #paleo |

Quinoa and I have been getting along famously lately. I have a tendency to set my sights on a specific food and let that flame just.rage, only coming up for air once I’ve sufficiently quenched that particular thirst. Lately, I’ve been on a quinoa kick, as I’ve been incorporating it into my daily lunch or dinner salad as a trusted source for carbs.

There are few carbs my digestive system enjoys processing, you see, so once I find one that works for my body, I get a little elated. I keep my diet fairly low-carb for health reasons (read more about that here), and my body is very picky about its preferred source of carbs. As it turns out, I process quinoa famously, which is great news because it’s one of those highly nutritious whole foods that’s super easy to incorporate into my daily life.
