    New to me: Acai Bowl?

    I'm late to THIS particular trend. Just had a tweet pop-up that said there was a new restaurant in my berg serving these. "The World's Best Healthy Breakfast"?

    Isnt' it essentially a Carb Delivery System? Is this hype, or am I missing something?

    My daughter introduced me to it as one of her favourite things. I liked it actually, and it didn't cause me any problems/inflammation, which a lot of things do. So it was handy to get in a pinch.

    About 70% of its calories are from fat.

    Here is the real reason to look elsewhere: "Here in the U.S., acai berries come not as a whole fruit, but as frozen puree." Why bother with imported frozen puree when you can get many other kinds of delicious whole berries from local growers?

    It's hype to a degree. I prefer local, seasonal berries, but acai certainly has some antioxidant value and I wouldn't ignore them. But, I don't see acai as the superfood the hype suggests.
