If there is a stand out theme to me for 2017, it's that I've strived really hard to make healthier choices and to simplify my life. This post isn't necessarily about the later at all, but it definitely has to do with healthier choices.

I've been awful at eating breakfast for as long as I can remember. Derek and the kids are so good about having some cereal and fruit in the morning, but I can only do that for so long, and then I get super bored of it. If I'm going to eat breakfast in the morning, it needs to be something fun that I've been thinking about and anticipating all night long.

One of my very favorite things to have in the morning (or lunch, or dessert after dinner!) are acai bowls! I love how flavorful and amazing they are, but how they can constantly be changed up a little bit every day depending on what you use for your toppings.

Making Acai bowls really isn't very hard. All you do is blend two frozen Acai packets (found in the frozen fruit section at Walmart), with one banana and then pour it into your bowl! From there you add your toppings of choice. My go-to is chia seeds, shredded coconut, strawberries, and Post's Honey Bunches of Oats with Almonds.

Post consumer brands has something for everyone in the family. I love Honey Bunches of Oats with Almonds because I feel like it gives my morning that good hearty crunch factor that I'm looking for, but there is also nothing better than curling up on the couch with a bowl of Honey Comb and playing a video game on something like the Nintendo Switch.

Post is now partnering with with Nintendo Switch to give your life some extra fun! Make sure to pair game time with a delicious serving of Post cereals, or a unique recipe like this one.

1 banana
2 3.5oz Frozen Acai Packets
1 tbsp chia seeds
2 tbsp shredded coconut
2 strawberries sliced
1/4 c Honey Bunches of Oats with Almonds

In a blender or food processor, blend the banana and the Acai together. You may need to run the Acai packet under warm water for a minute or two to soften it a little so it blends easier.

Once your Acai is made, top your Acai bowl with the remaining ingredients and enjoy!
