Acai Berry Bowl

Acai Berry Bowl

While on vacation in Steamboat Springs this past weekend, my 15 year old daughter found a new love…ACAI! With every bite of this beautiful bowl her eyes lit up with excitement. As a matter a fact she talked about the acai bowl for many many days. Obviously, I wanted to bank on her new found love for this dish packed with yummy goodness. So I decided to do what any mother would, I recreated the bowl! The most amazing thing is, not only does she love eating this power packed bowl, she actually has fun making it too. Art and Food… Win! Win!

I love making meals for my family. I show love by creating foods that taste great and feed the soul. Where I come from (Texas) a home cooked meal is like a hug! Just ask my friend Terri! We come together to eat, laugh and to celebrate life.  

When making a dish I’m always asking myself 2 questions. Will it taste great and is it healthy for my family? Passing along this way of cooking and living (lifestyle) to my family is important. My daughter Ashley (fitness trainer) is always telling me, Mom, this is great you really need to write a recipe book.

This is the start of my recipe book! Every week I’ll be sharing 1 recipe with you, along with some educational bits on the benefits of the ingredients in the recipe.
