I thought I’d start my first blog the same way I start most days, with my favourite smoothie bowl recipe. I have a smoothie bowl for breakfast nearly every day as it’s a super nutritious way to kick start my eating with the most important meal of the day.
I thought I’d start this blog the same way I start most days, with my favourite smoothie bowl recipe. I have a smoothie bowl for breakfast nearly every day as it’s a super nutritious way to kick start my eating with the most important meal of the day.
This recipe is a great way to get tons of health greens down your neck all while getting to enjoy a lovely dessert flavour. It ticks off a large portion of my daily vitamin intake in just the first meal, such as 100% of my vitamin A, C and K requirements (see nutrient breakdown at the end of the recipe)
I always look forward to this as my favourite meal of the day!
While I have a selection of flavours and recipes based off different desserts, which I will share in future blog posts, I always end up coming back to this one as my go-to ‘get as much nutrition as I can’ option. I have tailored this recipe many times every time I discover another good ingredient to get in daily.
The base of this recipe has a pear and mint flavour, with a fresh herby hint coming from the parsley. It’s then topped with a selection of toppings to make it as colourful as possible. For those of you who don’t know, the pigments of colors in our foods are actually the antioxidants we are seeing, it’s the reason we evolved color-vision in order to pick out the ripest fruit from far away!
The more colourful your food the better it is for you, that’s why i aim to make my meals as colourful and vibrant as possible, and it doesn’t get much more colourful than this rainbow filled bowl!
