Acai Bowls Benefits and Detractors

Acai bowls are popular in California. Most of my favorite coffee shops and cafes offer a number of different kinds. Personally, I think they taste great and I order them a few times a week. What I didn't know is that while there are some health benefits there are a number of detractors we should consider.

If you haven't hand one it is a little like frozen yogurt with lots of topics. It will run you around $8-10 in most places.

First, they are chuck full of healthy stuff like acia berries, fruit, anti-oxidants and healthy fats. These help your body fight off diseases and cancers.

The downside is that many of these bowls contain a huge amount of sugar. All the berries, almonds, butter, and granola spike your body full of sugar.

It is recommended that you don't have them every day. Just eat them on occasion as an actual lunch. They are too rich for a snack so make sure you aren't eating that and loading up later on during the day.
