In my last blog entry I discuss some brain boosting foods that help you focus fast and sustain your energy throughout the day.
Here is my absolute favorite food for thought, an Almond Butter Berry Bowl. I originally created this bowl for an article on SimonSAID, but am so obsessed with it I had to share it here. Unpeel and freeze bananas in a plastic bag or Tupperware in advance. Using frozen opposed to fresh banana and berries will create the thick, satisfying smoothie bowl you are hoping for. Combine all ingredients and blend until smooth. My favorite post workout meal to date!
1 Cup Frozen Mixed Berries
1/2 Frozen Banana (I always keep peeled and bananas in a Ziplock in my freezer!)
1 Scoop Protein Powder
1 T Almond Butter
1 T Chia Seeds
3/4 cup Unsweetened Vanilla Almond milk (1/2 cup for even thicker bowls)
Top with your favorite brain foods— I used dark chocolate, blueberries, whole grain granola and shredded coconut.
