Is acai low fodmap?
Acai is a low fodmap berry with potent anti-oxidant properties. These days acai bowls are all the rage, yet they can cost a pretty penny. You can make a delicious acai bowl for weight loss and gut health at home for a fraction of the cost.
I love making this super easy homemade acai smoothie bowl. The combination of blueberries and acai powder creates a beautiful purple smoothie bowl full of liver cleansing phytonutrients.
I added a tablespoon of collagen powder by Nutra organics which is excellent for gut health and glowing skin. Nutra organics collagen powder is low fodmap and a great source of easily absorbed amino acids.
Many people with gut problems and IBS have low stomach acid and difficulty digesting and absorbing protein, especially animal protein. Using collagen powders in smoothies is an easy way to get high-quality amino acids into your body.
One medium banana that is a touch underripe is used in this low fodmap acai bowl to provide a natural sweetness and perfect creaminess!
This acai bowl for weight loss is fantastic for insulin resistance as it is low in saturated fats. Fruit is often labeled as bad for weight and insulin resistance due to the natural sugars found in fruit. But the truth is saturated fats are a primary cause of insulin resistance. Inflammation is another underlying cause of insulin resistance and weight gain.
Blueberries are one of the highest fruits in anti-oxidants and are phenomenal for weight loss and insulin resistance.
Acai berry can be hard to come by, so I make my acai smoothie bowl with acai powder that is easy to use and store. I keep all my superfoods, nuts, seeds, and grains in mason jars as I’m not too fond of plastic for many reasons. Using glass jars for storage is great for keeping your cupboards and kitchen organized with easy access to the best superfoods.
I have limited space in my kitchen, so I use glass jars to store whole foods on my kitchen counter. My friends always comment on how it looks like a well-organized health food store. Something about seeing what I have in my jars reminds me to use the superfoods like acai powder that I buy.
