Deep in the heart of the Amazon jungle hides the hidden gem of Brazil: the açaí berry. Globetrotter and wellness enthusiast Roy came across açaí bowls during his travels there, and upon his return home, he and wife Tara immediately set out to gather the best recipes to emulate the dish. They were motivated by a desire to spread the health benefits of the super food, which include weight loss, boosted energy, and finally learning how to pronounce "açaí." Their journey led them to found Vitality Bowls, where they churn out a menu of bowls and smoothies, each oriented around the açaí berry. Cooks complement the starring ingredient with fruits, veggies, and nourishing seeds such as flax and guarana, all organic and locally sourced whenever possible. Additionally, Vitality Bowls' treats are free of frozen yogurt, ice, preservatives, trans fats, and added sugar.
