Easy Weight Loss Breakfast Idea: Acai Bowl

This recipe is perfect for anyone who is busy! Just throw a few ingredients in the blender and go! BONUS: I have included a code for 3 FREE smoothies from Daily Harvest!

I’ve been buying açaí bowls from local specialty restaurants or from the grocery store for the last year. This is a perfect breakfast or lunch option for someone who is trying to lose weight. I love these bowls! They are packed full of goodness and you can really make it your own! One thing I don’t like? The cost & not knowing exactly what is going into what I’m eating. It adds up if you buy these a few times a week or even once a week so I figured why not start making my own?!

Whip up an easy breakfast to help lose weight! #weightloss #acaibowl #breakfastideas #fitfam

The only thing I had to buy for this was the açaí. A friend recommended this brand from amazon and I love it! It has zero sugar and it tastes amazing! It doesn’t take much either. I think what I ordered should last me a few months! For more healthy breakfast ideas you can click this link.

Here is the recipe I use for mine:

-1 tbsp of açaí (you can use less but I don’t recommend more)

-Vanilla protein powder (I love this brand or this one!)

-Splash of almond milk (or whatever milk you prefer)

-Handful of ice

-Half to whole banana (I happened to have a very ripe banana so I used it all)

-Feel free to add extras! Fresh blueberries, mango, pineapple, strawberries. Get adventurous.

Blend it UP!

Topping Ideas:

-Coconut, Cocoa nibbles, strawberries, blueberries, chia seed, granola, and more!

The possibilities are truly endless and it’s almost like a little smoothie in a bowl! So filling and full of so much goodness.

Get on track with BodyBoss, a full fitness and nutritional program#fitness #weightloss #bodyboss

We are already well into 2018 and hopefully if one of your goals or resolutions for the new year was to live a healthier life, you are sticking to it! As I’ve mentioned before (here and here) I lost about 60lbs last year after committing to clean eating and also consistent workouts. I’m here to say it was not easy, some days were really hard! I’m so proud and happy to be where I am now in life because of the changes I made. One thing I always think was how FAST a year went by. I will say that I too was ready for a little kickstart and to try something new in 2018. I was falling into some old unhealthy eating habits and I knew I needed a change pronto! Enter the Ultimate Body Fitness guide & Superfood nutrition guide that can really boost energy levels, fitness challenges and healthy eating. I’m already two weeks in and seeing great results!

BodyBoss was sent to me and I was so excited to dive right in! The first booklet I opened was their fitness guide. The fitness guide is broken down into a pre-training program (4 weeks) and then four total cycles of routines (3 weeks each). Once you complete the pre-training then you can officially start their 12 week program. I opted to skip the pre-training program because I have already been working out in a consistent manner.I did glance through it and loved that they broke down the moves for you if you aren’t familiar with the names

Another reason I love the BodyBoss fitness guides is because the workouts themselves are based around high intensity interval training (HIIT), this is the fastest and most effective method to burn fat. I’ve done HIIT programs in the past but the BodyBoss routines really got my blood pumping. Each day is different and they break down exactly what should be done each day, I found this so helpful. I also really liked that for each day you workout they have a short warm up period with several moves and then after the workout there is some “cool down” moves that involve stretching, which is just as important as the workout itself in my opinion!

BodyBoss has made working out at home a breeze! Everyday is broken down so effectively. You can order the online version, which gives you access to the online training program. You can also purchase the package which is the online version plus the 200 page booklet. I’ve seen amazing results in such short time frame. My energy levels are higher than they have been the past few months, especially in the afternoons. I love that I can also show my kids that leading a healthy and active lifestyle is so important.

In addition to the fitness guide, BodyBoss also has a full nutritional guide. The guide centers around meal planning, in my experience I’ve also had great success when I plan out what I will be eating for breakfast/lunch/dinner and snacks everyday. Because most of us are busy, taking a few hours out of the day one day a week (I choose Sundays) to prep some food ahead of time will really save you when it comes to making healthy food choices. I feel pretty confident in my ability to make healthy choices but I really loved trying the recipes offered up in the BodyBoss nutritional guide.

 

Some of my favorites included the Bananarama Muffins, even my kids loved these! I added some extra walnuts to mine because I love a little extra crunch. Another breakfast favorite was the magic matcha pudding. I loved that this recipe was simple and I already had all of the ingredients called for! I topped mine with some shredded coconut, blueberries, and walnuts.

For lunch I mostly stuck with salads or avocado toast, I also loved doing a quick smoothie. Body Boss offers an entire guide for smoothies and desserts.

For dinner my husband and I loved the keep on track quinoa. I was not sure what to expect with this one but I have a feeling this will be on constant repeat for dinner at our house. The healthy chicken pasta was another dinner time hit. This was one that was easily prepped on Sunday and we were able to eat throughout the week.

Every now and then we deserve a cheat meal! I know when I crave something there really is no denying that craving in some way. Luckily, BodyBoss has you covered. They have a section devoted to approved cheat meals. I loved that I could still indulge in some of my favorite treats (peanut butter and pancakes) but still felt like I was making healthy choices and not totally blowing progress I was making.

Other great perks of the BodyBoss program was that they have a whole section where they break down exactly what you need to buy at the grocery store. For a busy mom like myself this is great! I could take the list with me and simply check off what I needed for any one recipe. I’m also a huge smoothie person and love testing and trying new ones. BodyBoss offered 100 pages devoted to smoothie recipes and healthy snacks (you know I love snacks!)

This program is something I wish I would have found a year ago. It really made me excited to wake up each day to see my next workout routine or excited for a meal that I was having that day. A healthy lifestyle should not be something that one hates or dreads. BodyBoss was kind enough to offer my followers an exclusive coupon code to their 12 week program! Just use code WITHLOVEMAMA at checkout for an additional 15% off any guide (valid until April).

Check BodyBoss out if you are feeling like you need some extra motivation, I assure you that you will not regret it!
