Recipe: Ultimate Acai Bowl

by Suzan Terzian, Certified Nutritionist, Health & Wellness Consultant

A great way to enjoy a plant based breakfast is to make yourself a smoothie bowl. My all time favorite smoothie bowl is the infamous Acai bowl. I absolutely LOVE it!

Acai berries are mostly grown in Brazil’s Amazon rainforest.  These dark-purple berries pack a nutrient punch with their antioxidant properties, with health benefits such as increased energy levels, a boosted immune system, and improved skin and nails.

However did you know that many bowls offered at different restaurants are loaded with sugar, making this healthy dish a lot less healthy?

Recipe: Creamy Vegan PB & J Swirl Ice cream

by Mira Naaman Iskandar, Co Owner of Nectar

Summer is wrapping up! Long summer days intertwined with ice cream and sun kissed skin fade as the fall enters with new goals, clean living and cooler months. In honour of summer days and getting back on track, my “go-to ice cream” is this creamy, vegan, peanut butter and jam creation. Peanut butter reminds me a fall and the back to school routine… what better way to celebrate it with a fun play with this treat. The texture of this “nice-cream” surprises me every time, its lusciously velvet, smooth texture will have you ditch the processed, sugar heavy dairy ice creams for this versatile blend. Have fun with the toppings and create your own signature blends.

ingredients:

  • 3 frozen bananas (chopped before freezing)
  • 1 Tablespoon non-dairy milk (almond or coconut milk)
  • 1/2 cup fresh strawberries
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 T creamy natural peanut butter

Toppings

  • 1 teaspoon cocoa nibs
  • 1 teaspoon bee pollen
  • 1 teaspoon chia seeds
  • 1 teaspoon roasted peanuts (chopped)

Welcome back to Bodytree after a well deserved break. If your summer was anything like mine there was a giant record scratch on diet goals. Hopefully all that cheese, bread, ice-cream and, possibly, wine were amazing. But it is time for us to get back to reality!

Now that it’s September, the timing is perfect for a healthy lifestyle reset.

Here are my top 5 tips to get us all back on track!

The Truth About: FAT

 

A conversation with Nadia Sehweil, co-founder of Bodytree & co-owner of Nectar and Suzan Terzian, Certified Nutritionist, Health & Wellness Consultant

Nutrition is an ever evolving science and we know that for years people have been bombarded with confusing and contradictory information telling you to avoid fats, that they are bad for your health and lead to many negative health consequences. Meanwhile, the low-fat and non-fat food industry grew and became the norm, while levels of heart disease, obesity and blood cholesterol increased.

So while everyone was eating less fat in an effort to get healthy, the result was the opposite due to the high carbohydrate content of these low fat products. Today we would like to end this fear associated with eating fat. Eating less fat has not led to better health, so let’s change this perspective and reconcile our relationship with fat that seems to have taken a wrong turn in the midst of all the false information out there. So let’s have an honest conversation about GOOD FATS!
