Beet & Berry Power Bowl

Beet & Berry Power Bowl

I’m feelin’ super upbeet about this one. Yep, that was cheesy.

But happy breakfasting! Holy mother of breakfasts. The ultimate power bowl packed with fruits and veggies to keep you satisfied until lunch rolls around and possibly then some. Now this is what breakfast should look like every day!

I’m tellin’ ya, this smoothie bowl will not leave you feeling disappointed. It has been on repeat for breakfast lately and I’m now obsessed with this combo. The avocado gives the smoothie a perfect creamy texture and the strawberries add a slightly tart element. Two dates and a beet add a fabulous sweet component to satisfy that morning sweet tooth but in a healthy way.

So, I’m not exactly the queen of fitness, in fact, I call it a good day if I hit over a mile on MyFitnessPal. However, if you are into getting in an early gym session, this smoothie bowl is for you. It’s packed with nutrients and healthy fats to keep you going.

The color is absolutely phenomenal. The true color is sort of a dark and deep magenta but the lighting makes it look more red in the pictures. Nonetheless, you win in the color department, Beet & Berry Power Bowl.

Raspberries would also work really well in this recipe if you’re not a huge fan of strawberries. I hope that you love this smoothie bowl recipe and make it over the weekend to share with the ones that you love <3

Dark Chocolate Sweet Potato Brownie Bites

Dark Chocolate Sweet Potato Brownie Bites

Dark chocolate and sweet potato???

Yesssss! They work together all too well. If you can combine veggies with chocolate, then you can 100% count me in. These brownie bites are the perfect little taste of dark chocolatey goodness. You know, just the perfect bite sized treat that will satisfy your sweet tooth cravings without going overboard. A couple of these little guys after dinner sounds like the perfect dessert to me.

I am actually on Day 1 of my first 3 day juice cleanse and let me tell you, I have to get these babies out of the house ASAP! They’re all going to my boyfriend’s house. I may have had a few last night but today is another sad story.

Preparing quick little treats such as these brownie bites within a matter of 10 minutes saves so much time and also keeps me from digging into other not so nice little treats. We all have those days. 

 

I used cacao powder and also added some melted dark chocolate chips for a greater depth of chocolate flavor. I added 2 tbsp of sugar because caution: if you don’t, things could be looking a wee bit bitter. No worries though, a little sweetener of some sorts will do the trick! Agave would be great too.
