Staying healthy inside and out is just something that we all need to think about...
How are our diets? Are we watching what we eat? How fit are you? Do you want to be fitter? What do we do to keep our minds active? There are so many things to think about; sometimes it’s easier to put your own needs last but really - if we are not healthy and happy, what are we? Leading a healthy lifestyle is important for everyone, and we should try as hard as we can to maintain it. Feeling good in your skin is what we should all aim for.
One thing that is very on trend at the moment is acai and smoothie bowls. These are a gorgeous looking breakfast or post exercise snack. Topped with a colorful array of nuts, fruits, and edible greens. A smoothie bowl is something we can all start the day off with, its simple, fresh and delicious. Be sure to balance out your bowl with fruit and nuts, as too much fruit can mean too much sugar, so be sure your bowl is balanced.
And best of all, if you don’t have time to create a bowl, make it as a smoothie…
Spring is the perfect time to look at your diet, and the first meal of the day is the most important so let’s make sure we get it right. Time to move on from the winter stodginess and get into some fun, fresh spring goodness.
Method Place all ingredients into a blender and blend until smooth. Add more coconut water if the smoothie is too thick. Pour into a chilled glass, sprinkle with extra blueberries; enjoy!
