I hope you haven’t lost the lid to your blender, cause you are going to want it for this. At 6 am, I am the loudest person in my neighborhood, but hey, my Acai bowl is worth waking the homeskillets. Breakfast is the reason I get out of bed. Really. I stumble out of bed into my kitchen and start to clumsily, create it. I’m not the girl that eats an hour after waking or skips breakfast in general. I am stuffing my face before my eyes are fully open. I ride my mountain bike into work every morning and need the proper fuel, as it can be a 10-20 mile ride one way depending on trail closures.
My go to breakfast is what I like to call an “Acai Bowl”. Commuting requires my morning meal to leave me feeling satisfied energized and refreshed, without being weighed down. I like starting my morning with all the good hippie nutrients that wake the stomach soul. I have experimented with different meals to see how my ride is effected. Eggs and toast, nah ah. Bowl of oats… uh huh. Acai bowl, awwww yeeeea!
