How To Make an Acai Bowl - The Recipe
Things to keep in mind when ordering an acai/pitaya/coconut or any smoothie-type bowl.
Reality is guys, when you eat out, you don’t have control over what’s going in your food.
And restaurants are understandably there to sell.
And that doesn’t have to be a bad thing.
Personally, when I randomly want and order an acai bowl, I’m fully content knowing I’m treating myself, and order whatever is on the menu that looks good (I would be the “star” 👆🏻).
But I get this question all time,
And I get that some of you eat this all the time.
And I’m NOT a fan when stores falsely market something to consumers or don’t tell the whole story.
So, I hope this “in a nutshell” infographic 👆🏻 helps keep it in perspective for you with really easy things to know and ask for when ordering these. The tweaks WILL make a difference.
By all means, if you don’t enjoy something (like for me, I don’t LIKE something overly sweet) then don’t do it.
I’m all about balance in either end of the extremes in the non-diet vs diet spectrum (yes, both are extremes).
I don’t eat something I don’t like, want or need just to prove to myself I can out of fear of mistaking it to being too restrictive- that’s NOT intuition, nor do I feel the need to leave something out just because it’s “FATTENING” if I really want it and know I’ll enjoy it.
I rather learn, and educate my clients, on WHAT is going inside, HOW they can be categorized in food groups, HOW MUCH of each constitutes a standard serving size
AND THEN MAKE MY OWN EDUCATED CHOICE THAT WORKS FOR ME,
NATURALLY FINDING MY OWN BALANCE,
AND NOT NEEDING TO BE SO OBSESSED OVER EVERY TIME SOMETHING ISN’T A SALAD
NOR EVERY TIME I WANT TO CHOOSE TO EAT SOMETHING WHILE STILL MAKING MORE HEALTHFUL CHOICES THAT MAKE ME FEEL GOOD TOO.
