Holidays bring a lot of cheer (and delicious meals with loved ones). But that doesn’t mean you have to compromise on feeling ah-mazing in your body. Did you know that if you start your day with a delicious nutrient-packed meal, you’re less likely to overeat or have cravings during the day? Ok, that was a fact from the doctors, let me add one more from myself: if you start your day with a delectable superfood breakfast bowl prepared with love, you’re opening the pathway to magic. Take my word for it.
I found the heart bowl in a lonely corner of a discount store when I was newly single two years ago, and it became my daily reminder to be present, mindful, fearless, and give myself a little more love than I think I have.
The heart bowl magic has spread wide and far, and I’m happy to be sharing my favorite recipe concoctions with you! Having just come back from a meditation retreat with my guru David Harshada Wagner, where I learned how to meditate with my beautiful I Am Love Mala, I’ve been infusing my recipes with a little extra sweetness. Get blending and feel it for yourself!
This Strawberry Shortcake Smoothie Bowl will please your senses just as much as your soul (especially if you eat it from the heart bowl) I’ve also sneaked kale into the bowl for some added alkaline – trust me, you won’t taste it at all.
