Green Superfood Smoothie Bowl

Yes, it’s cold outside.

Yes, I just figured out that according to Ayurvedic medicine, my Dosha is primarily Vata and therefore, I should probably be eating warming foods and not raw cold smoothies (now, I’m starting to sound crazy, I know).

Yes, I have learned that if I respect the basic rules of macrobiotics, I should only eat locally sourced seasonal foods (and maybe back off of the freeze dried, imported, exotic superfoods I have come to love oh-so-much).

NEVERTHELESS, today I wanted a superfood smoothie bowl. And I am slowly learning that despite the innumerable dietary theories out there, the most important thing we can do is to listen to our bodies. So I made a green superfood smoothie bowl and it was a.w.e.s.o.m.e.
