There are few things in life that make our insides smile quite like a big old bowl of breakfast – and I don’t just mean upon rising! Breakfast is one of those things that is appealing from am to pm, and in our eyes, anytime is breakfast time. In the halls of LJ HQ, it’s not uncommon to spot a sister chowing down on a jar of overnight oats or knocking back a spiced banana smoothie when the afternoon sun is beaming through the window. And the one breakfast we can NEVER go past is an acai bowl. What’s not to love? They’re fruity, they’re fresh and these antioxidant rich little berry bowls never fail to put a HUGE toothy smile on our dial.
If you’ve dropped into one of our Active Living Rooms recently, you would have noticed our new friends from Liquefy have joined the Active Living party as our brand new Nourish partner! We couldn’t be more thrilled to have them on board. Not only do these guys know a thing or two about the art of acai, but they’ve created an entire menu devoted to the Amazonian super food, and quite frankly, we can’t get enough! Not sold yet? To prove just how creative they really are, these clean eating crusaders even managed to put a healthy twist on a series of not so healthy chocolate bars… and the results were too delicious not to share!
Here’s a little sneak peek at one of the nutritious AND delicious eats that Liquefy can whip you up next time you visit a Lorna Jane Active Living Room! Check out their menu here!
