Acai Bowls, South Block, Various Locations, Washington, DC

Acai Berry Bowls, South Block

I love food. That is one reason I started my food blog. But, eating all these great dishes, I have to work hard to keep my weight down. I work out, but not as often as I should. And I try to eat good most of the time.

So when I found out about the Acai Bowls at South Block, I was thrilled! I was so glad to find a place that I could eat something healthy and tasted good.

Acai is a superfood which comes from Brazil. It has many health benefits. South Block blends the berries with ice until it is the consistency of a slushy. Then they add different toppings. I had the Warrior Bowl (bottom) which starts off  with the acai berries blended with bananas, strawberries and pineapple juice. It is topped off with crunchy granola, fresh sliced fruit of strawberries, banana and plump blueberries. The other bowl we tried was the PBJ Bowl (top). The acai berries are blended with peanut butter, bananas, blueberries and almond milk. It is topped with granola, blueberries and bananas. Both were delicious! After eating them, I felt full for hours and had a lot of energy.

South Block also does smoothies of acai, greens and protein. They also sell their signature cold press juices.

Now I can get through my workouts and know that my reward is something from South Block. Head to one of their locations and try one. You will become a fan too!
