When I went back home to Hawaii earlier in the month, the heat index was 100 and above–boy was I miserable in that heat and humidity! It really is much hotter in Hawaii now than when I was a kid growing up there. My best friend from grade school, who now lives in Santa Cruz, just texted me the other day from Oahu asking me if I ever remember it being so hot when we were kids. “Ice Water and Acai Bowls!” I told her. Those were the only things that felt good and helped me to cool off. Mama Chia Granola is my current favorite–a good way to add some extra protein to this smoothie bowl, especially if you eat this for breakfast (highly recommended in hot, hot weather!) You don’t need those packets of frozen acai puree though, any frozen fruit will do. I used frozen strawberries and blueberries, which combined look like the color of acai berries, and are still full of antioxidants. I like to pour the frozen fruit puree over plain […] ]]> http://www.guavarose.com/2015/07/frozen-smoothie-bowls-to-beat-the-heat/feed/ 0 Café Plan B http://j.mp/1LSNsm9 http://j.mp/1LSNsm9#comments Wed, 29 Jul 2015 21:36:28 +0000 http://sacfoodies.com/?p=18504 http://sacfoodies.com/2015/07/cafe-plan-b/feed/ 0 Where’s the Best Cheesecake in Sacramento? http://j.mp/1I2DkVE http://j.mp/1I2DkVE#comments Wed, 29 Jul 2015 21:27:00 +0000 http://sacfoodies.com/?p=18501 http://sacfoodies.com/2015/07/wheres-the-best-cheesecake-in-sacramento/feed/ 0 Ham & Egg Breakfast Sandwich http://j.mp/1U6v6RH http://j.mp/1U6v6RH#comments Wed, 29 Jul 2015 12:54:32 +0000 http://sweetbakedlife.com/?p=2904 Continue reading ]]> http://sweetbakedlife.com/2015/07/29/ham-egg-breakfast-sandwich/feed/ 0 Easy Blender Cashew Butter http://j.mp/1VNepN0 http://j.mp/1VNepN0#comments Wed, 29 Jul 2015 06:27:54 +0000 http://amyshealthybaking.com/?p=14555 {continue reading}]]> http://amyshealthybaking.com/blog/2015/07/28/easy-blender-cashew-butter/feed/ 0 Dining News: The Violation That Forced The County to Close Cafe Bernardo/KBAR http://j.mp/1D7Np4U http://j.mp/1D7Np4U#comments Wed, 29 Jul 2015 04:33:14 +0000 http://sacramentoconnect.sacbee.com/?guid=bb9b750b91f9c5441af4aee3810f94c7 http://sacramentoconnect.sacbee.com/2015/07/28/dining-news-the-violation-that-forced-the-county-to-close-cafe-bernardokbar/feed/ 0 Save the Date!
