It all started with a science book...
When I opened up my 4th grade science book and saw a photo of a shrimp swimming in the sea, I declared I would never eat shrimp again. Expecting this dramatic tweenage outburst to pass, my mom asked, "so will you never eat chicken again because it comes from chicken?" Before this moment, it had never occurred to me from where my food was coming. In 1993, a 9 year old vegetarian in Chicago was unheard of. Concerned, my mom took me to a nutritionist who stated that if I were to continue a vegetarian diet, I not only would be perfectly healthy, but I might end up being the healthiest person in my family! Intrigued, I began reading about food science which eventually lead to a vegetarian, gluten-free, dairy-free diet.
In the early 2000's I lived in Southern California for college and throughout my early professional career, and fresh and healthy produce was at my fingertips. It was there where I tried my first acai smoothie bowl...a convenient way for a busy girl on a complicated diet to grab a healthy, refreshing, hearty meal. They truly brightened my day!
When life brought me back home to Chicago, marriage and pregnancy followed. I craved those smoothie bowls daily and without a good local option to buy, I began creating some myself.
I now have three kids (2, 4, and 6) who eat my smoothie bowls every day with colorful superfoods pouring out of their smiles. In creating beautiful, bright treats for me and my family, Bright Bowls was born. Try us out and give us a chance to Brighten Your Day!
