Healthy Breakfast Treat:

 recipe by Saskia Gregson-Williams

I have talked enough about my smoothie addiction by now; I love them for breakfast, snacks, lunch… you name it.  I love my smoothies thick, full of nutrients, poured into a bowl and eaten by the spoonful (this is actually better for you).

When I was younger, and lived in the US, I loved acai bowls, sweet, thick and full of delicious fruit. Although I devoured them, I  didn’t actually understand how good they are for you. Acai berry, nicknamed the “beauty berry” is full of antioxidants, amino acids and fatty acids which boost the immune and metabolic function. It packs more grams of protein than an egg and with all those omegas and fatty acids it has been shown to improve your hair, skin and nails and help remove free-radicals from our body. Sounds pretty good, no? This powder is a brilliant investment as it tastes delicious, packs a punch in the nutrition stakes, and is incredibly easy to use! This bowl is the perfect snack or meal replacement, its full of vitamins and minerals and will propel you into the best possible day.
