I tend to have food phases, where I eat lots of the same type of food for some time, then move on to something else, and return to it some time later.

A while ago I was eating about 500g of fresh tomatoes with roasted pumpkin seeds every morning.

Now, it’s red smoothie bowls. The basic recipe: a basis of cooked beetroot, berries and an apple. Sweeten with dried fruits or a piece of banana. Top with banana, pure cacao and more fruits.

I buy the ingredients from the store; beetroots precooked and berries frozen. This way, my meal is ready to go in a matter of minutes.

It’s a great feeling starting off my day with half the daily recommended dose of fruits and veggies already down! (And, tip for parents: my 2-year old daughter loves smoothies too!)

Red beetroot blueberries smoothie bowl:

  • 2 cooked red beetroots
  • 2 handfuls of frozen blueberries
  • 1 apple
  • 3 dried apricots, prunes, or dates (more or less to taste)
  • 1 tablespoon pumpkin seeds (nuts work as well)
  • Optionally: 1 tablespoon flax seed if you need extra fiber
  • Just enough water so that your blender will run smoothly

Cut the larger ingredients in blender-suitable pieces and… go!

Top with whatever you have in stock, more fruits, cacao, crunchy muesli, oats, nuts or seeds.

Pro tip: add Yogi Tea Curcuma Chai spices by cutting open the tea bag 😁.
