Updated: Jun 20, 2018



Ingredients:


In the pictured recipe:

Base:

  • 1 cup ice

  • Juice of 1 orange

  • 1/2 c. almond milk

  • 1 c. frozen pineapple

  • 1 baby bok choy

  • 1 mango

  • 1 banana

  • raw buckwheat

  • freeze-dried raspberries

  • frozen blueberries

  • grass-fed greek yogurt


In any breakfast bowl:

Base

  • Greens of choice (spinach, bok choy, chard, lettuce, kale...)

  • Fruit of choice (fresh or frozen)

  • Enough liquid to blend easily (water, juice, yogurt, keifer, kombucha, or milk of choice)


Toppings

  • nuts (walnuts, pistachios, sliced almonds...)

  • seeds (chia, pumpkin, hemp, flax...)

  • frozen fruits

  • freeze-dried fruits

  • fresh fruits

  • granola


Directions:

Simply blend base ingredients and add to bowl. Top and create to your hearts content! Enjoy!

Tips:

Try not to do too many fruit only bowls (or smoothies)... fruit tends to have a lot of sugar and when you make a bowl or a smoothie with just fruit, you tend to get quite a sugar rush (and a crash later...) but the more concerning thing is how much it spikes your blood sugar. In order to curb that intense sugar high and balance yourself out, you want to add healthy fats like nuts and seeds and some greens. When you combine the fruit with these counterparts, blood sugar increases much more slowly and it sustains us longer as a fuel, at a pace the body can keep up with rather then sending us into a fructose rollercoaster ride.


Bowls are about creativity! These are only ideas and suggestions to get inspired and get started. Be creative. Be sure to comment and share photos of your bowls and the ingredients you use!


For easier digestion, you can soak your seeds and nuts 3-4 hours before consuming (especially flax!). When using chia seeds, mix them in your bowl (or anything) and let them set at least 5 minutes before you eat them (this will make them unleash their super powers and nutrients as well as let some of the indigestible parts break down)
