Why a Smoothie Bowl?
Smoothie Bowls have an amazing blend of healthy ingredients to provide you with a ton of energy, and sickness protection. Blueberries are a great source of antioxidants and vitamins. Berries also have the benefit of being able to lower cholesterol in the blood, improving circulation in the body. This can help to prevent cardiac issues that can lead to strokes of heart attack. The flax is high in omega 3 fatty acids, which are amazing anti-inflammatory agents. Flax is also extremely high in fiber.
Out of all of the ingredients, cacao is by far the most interesting. Counted as one of the great superfoods, cacao is well known for its extremely high amount of antioxidants, and for its ability to energize someone who eats it. Cacao is not heavily processed and so this has a lot to do with why it retains so many of its nutrients.
