Acai Bowl

FODMAP safe breakfast - Acai bowl topped with FODMAP safe granola and raspberries

You may be asking what the HECK is Acai….if you are anything like my parents every time l say the word “aaaa-saw-ee” my parents give me a look of confusion.  Acai berries come from Central and South America and are known to have higher antioxidants than other berries.  Acai bowls are extremely popular at smoothie/juice bars but can get expensive at $10-12 a pop.  Plus there are typically other ingredients added into the bowls that are not FODMAP safe.  l recently had an “ah hah” moment when l realized l could make this myself and have it for a filling and nutritious FODMAP safe breakfast or snack.

l realized this last year that l was consuming too much sugar from my fruit intake which led me to have a higher insulin level.  l was completely blown away when l heard this as l eat so healthy.  l wasn’t counting the 4-5 servings of fruit l was eating a day as sugar.  Smoothies and smoothie bowls can go from healthy to unhealthy really quick with added sweeteners like honey, agave syrup and an overdose of fruit.  Think about it, why does a sweetener need to be added to already sweet fruit!? It’s just so silly to me!  Now l make sure to add a vegetable like spinach and use a smaller serving of fruit and of course no added sweetener.

PS if you want a DELICIOUS granola that you will be obsessed with, purchase here.

    It’s not “aaaa-saw-ee,” it’s “aaa-SIGH-ee.” 🙂

      That’s a great point and I have revised the recipe to reflect the 1/4 portion. It was a typo on my part. Thank you! 🙂
