A Heavenly Healthy Breakfast Bowl – That’s Truly Good for You

December 29th, 2015

The Raw Food revolution is sweeping the world with many of us turning our backs on processed foods and adopting healthy eating habits.  We care about what we eat and where it comes from.  We’re now focusing on the benefits of choosing healthy food options, opting to include natural and unprocessed foods in our everyday diets and striving for a balanced lifestyle.

It’s the breakfast bowl that everyone’s talking about

There’s a whole lot of hype about super foods and a lot of it is about the Acai berry.  Dark purple in colour, the Acai berry is a fruit which is similar in shape to a blueberry. A genuine superfood, Acai berries are packed with antioxidants, amino acids, fibre, essential fatty acids, vitamins and minerals, earning them a reputation as an energising superfood and making it a perfect partner for a healthy nutritionally balanced breakfast.

If you’re looking for a healthy way to start the day that’s packed with nourishment which will keep you feeling full and sustained for hours without that sluggish bloated feeling, you can’t go past an Ohana Acai Bowl.

Good eating habits start with a healthy breakfast

At Ohana Acai, we believe you should stop drinking your breakfast. Smoothies are great as a snack on the go, but taking the time to chew your food adds another dimension to digestion.  We now know the process of chewing your food releases important nutrients which are locked into your food. You may or may not know that in our saliva is a digestive enzyme called Amylase. Amylase is an enzyme that catalyses the hydrolysis of starch into sugars, where it begins the chemical process of digestion. By drinking our food we skip this crucial process and now make our stomach the beginning of the digestion process. Placing added stress on our gut health. Plus chewing helps you feel satisfied and fuller for longer.

It’s time to start look after yourself from the inside out

Nutritionists recommend we eat at least two to three servings of fresh fruits every day. Munching your way through an Ohana Acai Bowl take cares of that… plus a breakfast of natural, healthy food that tastes delicious will set you up for the day.

Establishing healthy eating habits has never been easier – this is the Ohana Acia Bar formula:

  • Start with a thick acia berry, strawberry and banana or mango base that’s low cholesterol and dairy free
  • Packed with vitamins, minerals, and phyto-nutrients, add two serves of seasonal fresh fruit
  • The crunch comes from our Paleo home-made (nut free) Granola, you choose two extra toppings
  • Finally give yourself a superfood boost by choosing two extra serves from our superfood menu

Plus if you’re watching your weight, having a healthy breakfast makes it easier to say no to empty calories in between meals. It’s a win-win all round!
