Bowls, bowls, bowls. Out of all the things I have been missing about LA, I’ll admit, a good smoothie bowl hits close to the top of my list. Wherever you find yourself in LA, you can be sure you are just steps away from a refreshing and healthy smoothie bowl treat!-comes in handy with weather that may as well be 365 shades of summer.
Just in the nick of time Vitality Bowls has hit the Bay Area food scene and I couldn’t be more thrilled about it…which is why I got my booty over to their newest Redwood City location.
Vitality Bowls’ menu is loaded with super-food ingredients, many of which I hadn’t even heard of. What I love most about the establishment is it’s dedication to transparency. Their menu items aren’t intended to fool anyone; each ingredient is listed for each item, nutritional content is readily available, and even every exotic and hard to pronounce fruit is described in terms of flavor and nutritional benefit.
Their menu is extensive from different bowls and toppings, to fresh squeezed juices and even salads, soups and sandwiches. I settled on the Detox bowl for my breakfast which came with a base of organic Açaí, almond milk, flax seed, kale, spirulina, bananas, and strawberries. My Detox Bowl was also topped with bananas, blueberries, almonds, goji berries, honey and some extra coconut shavings for kicks.
Coming from LA, I feel confident enough to call myself a bit of a smoothie snob and to my surprise Vitality Bowls was definitely up to snuff! My Detox Bowl wasn’t overly sweet and the silkiness of the smoothie was perfectly complemented by the crunch of my chosen toppings. And of course there is nothing more satisfying than enjoying a sweet treat, not just without guilt, but with added health benefits!
I’ll be making a visit to the establishment again soon, and you can too with over ten locations around the Bay Area alone!
