What's Up With The Acai Bowl Craze?
Kats Take

I love Acai Bowls.

No, I am not being a basic white girl.

Bottom line is, they are super healthy and taste amazing.

They are easy to make and let's be real, it makes your tummy super happy.

I make them quickly in the morning or even on a lazy day. You can also prep the ingredients ahead of time so that it is easy to put together.

There is a place called Vitality Bowl in the Bay Area, California. At Vitality, you can get Acai Bowls, but you can modify them. If you want a specific kind of bowl, they probably have it. My favorite is the Dragon Bowl. They also have an Energy Bowl, Detox Bowl, Green Bowl and Nutty Bowl.

Everyone is crazy for these bowls, but they are so expensive. If you want to get a good Acai bowl, you'd better break out your wallet because it will probably cost you around $20-25 per bowl.

Instead of going out and buying a bowl every day, I have resorted to making homemade versions.

What I do to make my own is very simple and I can add or take from it whatever I want.

I take frozen strawberries and blend them with just a little bit of milk. I add enough strawberries so that it fills a good size bowl. After I put all the purified strawberries into a bowl, I then add granola, or if I don't have any granola, I add Corn Flakes. I then slice up a banana into the bowl. After that, I add frozen Chia Seeds to make it a little bit more filling. Lastly, I add lots and lots of honey, which makes it extra sweet. It tastes amazing. I buy everything from bulk at Trader Joes so that it overall is way cheaper than going out and buying a bowl every day.

Sometimes when I get a bowl, I throw in some chocolate chips, but I feel like I am justified in doing so due to the healthiness of the bowl.

One of the best things about making it at home is that you can add and take away anything.

Below are 2 easy at home recipes. I hope that I have inspired you to try them out!

Pinterest is a great place to find easy recipes. Vitality Bowl also has all of its ingredients posted on their website, so if anyone wants to know what exactly they put in their bowls, it is there for you to find.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.

Challah vs. Easter Bread: A Delicious Dilemma

Is there really such a difference in Challah bread or Easter Bread?

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.
