Good Morning Antioxidant Acai Bowl Recipe (Video)
We’ve all heard that breakfast is the most important meal of the day, and it’s true! When you first wake up and prepare for your day ahead, it’s incredibly important to give your body the fuel it needs through proper nutrition. But what exactly does ‘nutrition’ constitute, particularly for your first meal? To start, you want to consume food for fuel to power you through your day. This fuel requires nutritious ingredients, from vitamins and minerals to antioxidants, protein and of course, a serving of fruits and veggies for a healthy, happy, energized and glowing y.o.u.!
Packing all this nutrition into a single meal may sound daunting, but this acai bowl recipe is delicious, highly nutritious, and super simple to make – a perfect start to your morning! Acai has been hailed as a superfruit because of its high levels of antioxidants (believed to protect cells from free radicals), healthy omegas, and amino acid.
Have you heard of Moringa? These tiny yet nutrient-rich leaves belong to Moringa Oleifera, commonly referred to as the Miracle Tree. Moringa has been used since ancient times for its numerous health benefits, ranging from antioxidants, natural energy and immune system boost, to anti-inflammatory, mood- and memory-enhancing properties. Basically, it is an awesome addition to any of your smoothies!
Bananas give you a healthy dose of potassium, fiber, and micronutrients; mixed berries increase the dose of antioxidants; pineapple is packed with Vitamins C, B-6, and Magnesium. The combination of protein and almond milk will give you sustainable energy. In conclusion, this is a powerhouse of an acai bowl that your tastebuds and body will thank you for.
