Crazy for Acai

Crazy for Acai

The superfood Acai, has tons of antioxidants, aids in increased energy, is said to increase metabolism and much more. Acai is a berry native to South and Central America. If you have never tried it, they are delicious. Especially in my favorite, the Acai Bowl.

How to Create the Tradition Acai Bowl
What you need-

  • 1 Acai Packet ( I used Sambazon as they are my favorite, which I buy at Whole Foods)
  • Frozen Bananas (the more the thicker)
  • Any other frozen fruit
  • Toppings (coconut sugar, mixed fruit, superfoods..)
  • As much water or coconut water

First you blend the frozen acai, frozen bananas and frozen mixed fruit. Here I blended it with coconut water, but you can use apple juice, orange juice or just water.
Then after I blended this I put it in a bowl and then my favorite part. TOPPINGS!

Here I used mulberry crumbles from Navitas Naturals (which I will be doing a review on some of their products soon). Mulberries are my new favorite superfoods that taste like yummy oatmeal cookies. I also topped this with Golden Berries, also from Navitas Naturals and fresh strawberries.

So simple and so many combinations! Don’t you just want a bite?


					

Welcoming myself to a new world:

Welcoming myself to a new world:

Well why don’t I start off by introducing myself? My names Deanna, I’m not really your typical 17 year old, I suppose. I was never the one to go out and party all night. Rather introverted, but thats something else to discuss.
“Your vegan, so that means you just eat vegetable, right?” I’ve been asked this multiple times. It seems as if though half of the portion of high school students still don’t know what a vegan diet is.
Any who, back to me. I live in New York, would never pass down an opportunity to go dine at my favorite spots in the city. Vegan of course, and your probably thinking of some places right now. My passion for yoga has been growing for well over a year now. It started merly for 20 minutes in gym, when we hit the yoga portion of class. It was a favorite time for myself and many others. In this moment, I felt no internal connection to it. But, in the past year struggling with internal battles, I searched for something, anything to relieve me of tensions that had built. It started with small stretches in my room, for a while in fact. Moving into poses, falling. Many times. Then, I began to take classes and it wasn’t until then that I came across the internal healing aspects of yoga. I now work at a studio near me and am looking forward to getting to start my teacher training next year.

I believe that certain events in my life have occurred for a reason. So I can share my stories, whether it be through pictures, recipes, events. I want my story to be heard and instead of instinctively hiding, its time to be free and come out of my shell as I move into the next portion of my life.

Come join me for the ride.
