Following the craze for kale, quinoa and chia seeds, and fermented foods beneficial to our microbiota (intestinal flora) like kimchi and sauerkraut, 2019 is shifting the spotlight to plates half-filled with fruits and vegetables, with the other half containing both proteins - like meat, fish, tofu, eggs, yogurt, legumes and almonds - and whole grains, such as bread, pasta or rice.
Since we should eat more fruit daily, why not try this acai bowl with California prunes full of super power ingredients to start your day?
