Let's talk smoothie bowls. Are we obsessed or do we think it's overhyped and its time has passed?
I personally enjoy a good smoothie. It’s a fabulous way to get in some nutritious fruits, veggies, proteins, you name it. Plus, it's the perfect breakfast or snack when you’re on the go and don't have time to slow down, sit down and have a meal.
BUT what about the rare moment you can sit down to eat breakfast? The bowl just takes it to a whole new level. By adding all the fresh fruit, nuts and seeds you add depths of flavor and texture. Plus who doesn't enjoy a meal that is both delicious and beautiful. Just look at this beauty.
