Mouth-water Monday: The Super Bowl Part I

IMG_9885This super bowl is more commonly known as an acai bowl. I had my first one ever almost a year ago when we went to Puerto Rico for my sister’s bachelorette party and it was amazing. When I came back to Atlanta, I knew I had to find a place that would have one that was as amazing as the one in Puerto Rico. After a lot of searching and some disappointments, I finally found one that lived up to it- at Luv a Bowl in Johns Creek.  There are several different options but my favorite is the Johns Creek Bowl with some peanut butter on top!

What is acai? 
Grapefruit like fruit from acai palm trees found more commonly in rainforests of South America.

Why acai?
Acai berries are known as “super foods” because it contains many antioxidants (much more than other berries), fiber and healthy fats.

Acai can be difficult to find in grocery stores, but here is an easy recipe that is pretty good:

      Thank you SO much for your comment! The “superfoods” I eat weekly are chia seeds, almond milk, quinoa, organic gluten-free oats and bananas. That is a very good request- I will definitely keep that in mind!
