PROMOTION Bowls and Superfoods are two of the biggest Clean Eating trends around – and now we’ve combined them to make Superfood Bowls! Just like Açaí Bowls and Smoothie Bowls, a Superfood Bowl makes a quick, nourishing, and delicious breakfast – but of course, you can also eat one at any time of the day.

The Bowl Trend

Bowls tend to be beautifully arranged – after all, things do have to be pleasing to the eye! And in my opinion, that’s really the key to a fantastic bowl. The trend – like so many others – originated in the USA. When I was on vacation there a few months back, it was impossible to escape the fruity açaí and pitaya bowls. But increasingly, savory dishes are also being serve in bowls. In fact, not that long ago, Germany’s first Clean Eating restaurant – named, fittingly, The Bowl – opened in Berlin. The focus is on – you guessed it – bowls!

My Superfood Oatmeal

Here, I prepared my Superfood Bowl as a porridge topped with ingredients that you can find on my Amazon page.* I cooked the oats in almond milk, then added maca and açaí powder. Almonds, dried mulberries, goji berries, and chia seeds rounded things out.

All superfoods have a high nutrient density and are rich in antioxidants: in addition to all essential amino acids, maca powder (which is derived from a root vegetable originating in Peru) also contains carbohydrates, fatty acids, proteins, vitamins, and minerals. Almonds are rich in fiber, protein, calcium, and iron as well as vitamins B and E. Açaí berries have a high antioxidant content and also contain vitamins A, B, and C, as well as magnesium, potassium, calcium, and iron. Mulberries contain vitamins B and C, iron, calcium, potassium, zinc, and magnesium. Goji berries, which have been used in traditional Chinese medicine for thousands of years, are said to contain 21 important minerals and trace elements as well as 19 amino acids and many antioxidants and essential fatty acids. (Note: My thoughts on Goji berries have shifted somewhat; read more here.) Chia seeds have a high omega-3 fatty acid content and also contain proteins, calcium, potassium, iron, and magnesium.
