I am a little bit addictive to acai bowls, and they are becoming a regular feature at many healthy breakfast places. They are super easy to make yourself and also very versatile, for instance you can choose not to add the greens to your bowl, but I find it delicious and still very sweet. You can mix it up with different toppings.

  1. I’d like to thank you for the efforts you’ve put in writing this blog.
    I am hoping to check out the same high-grade blog posts from
    you in the future as well. In truth, your creative writing abilities has inspired me to get my own, personal blog now 😉

  2. Hey would you mind sharing which blog platform you’re
    using? I’m going to start my own blog soon but I’m having a hard time making a decision between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal.
    The reason I ask is because your design and style seems different then most blogs and I’m looking for something
    completely unique. P.S Apologies for being off-topic but I had to ask!

  3. This is an top website u have. I think I will visit your website more if you post some more of the specific information. Thanks a lot for posting the information.

  4. Not simply high quality, but also useful information. And also that is unusual to come by these days! I have to say that I am actually amazed and also will certainly come back once again if you maintain up the high quality and also value of the content at this level, or also get it on the following level.

  5. First of all I want to say wonderful blog! I had a quick question that I’d like to ask if you don’t mind. I was interested to know how you center yourself and clear your thoughts prior to writing. I have had a tough time clearing my mind in getting my thoughts out. I do enjoy writing however it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are generally lost just trying to figure out how to begin. Any ideas or tips? Cheers!|

    • Hi Marinir, its a good question, it can be difficult to clear your head. I am most productive sitting in a cafe that has windows I can sit and look at the world outside going by while I write, thats what works for me. Also try making notes on your phone or in a note book when the ideas come to you so you can use these to help you start when you sit down to write. I hope this helps 🙂
