Are Smoothie Bowls Actually Healthy?
Yes, smoothie bowls are healthy! But like any nutritious food, you must eat them in moderation. The saying, “Too much of a good thing,” goes for smoothie bowls as well.
Blended foods make it very easy to get carried away with adding extra ingredients or sprinkling “just a couple more” toppings. That is why portion control is best.
Larger quantities of something healthy isn’t always better. A plant-based smoothie bowl packs in all the health-boosting nutrients you can think of but are also full of natural sugars that add on calories. So before blending, try to consider how much of each ingredient you would eat regularly. One kiwi? Half a banana? Everything in moderation!
A healthy plant-based diet differs for everyone. Utilize the smoothie bowl’s versatility to supplement your needs! With a plan, you can create the perfect balance between natural sugars, protein, fibers, and healthy fats to keep your health intact.
