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.

The pandemic has been in our world for more than half of 2020 and people are still acting stupid. If anything, they're getting stupider. They think that the virus is gone. It's not. Stop going to frat parties. Stop trying to go places without a mask. I wish things were normal, too. They're not.

In the summer of 2017, 20 type 1 diabetics completed a 10-week 4,000+ mile bike ride from New York to California. They biked against the advice of doctors, family, and friends. Many were skeptical that people with diabetes could complete such a physically challenging trip without putting themselves in danger due to their disease.

Seasonal Depression Is Real And It Deserves Our Attention

Check in on your friends throughout the winter season, it can be brutal.

As we transition seasons and enter the last few months of the year, some are feeling grand about this natural shift. But that doesn't mean everyone is thrilled that the weather is cooling down — it's important to extend your knowledge to the phenomenon that is seasonal depression.

The lack of sunlight during the later seasons of the year, beginning with autumn, triggers a state of depression for about 15% of the population. This results in the lack of serotonin provided by the sun, causing it to be hard for some to do a lot of the things that would normally be deemed simple tasks to do during the earlier times in the year like getting out of bed, showering, going to work/school, etc. A major difference is an intense need for sleep similar to a hibernation effect.

September Is Suicide Awareness Month, But Mental H​ealth Is An Everyday Discussion

Mental illnesses deserve our attention 365 days a year.

September is Suicide Awareness Month, providing an opportunity to raise awareness, further educate yourself, and remember the reality that mental illnesses present.

Actively advocating for mental health resources, progress in education, and a broken stigma is an everyday ask — an activity that we can each participate in.
