My favourite thing is an açai bowl because it’s refreshing, delicious and healthy. The açai berry is a berry that grows in South America in the rainforest. It is pronounced ah-sigh-EE. This berry has excellent health benefits: it is full of antioxidants, is good for the brain, and activates detoxifying enzymes. I made it more balanced by adding some spinach, but you can also leave this for a sweeter taste. Add a tablespoon of peanut butter or almond butter if you like!
Calories are a unit of energy. We need it to stay warm, move around and control other processes in our bodies. It is important to take in enough energy (calories) to keep your body functioning optimally. If you eat more than you use, you can either gain or lose weight if you don't eat enough. How much you need depends on your weight, gender and how active you are.
