Eat Healthy & Well At Berrywell
Indonesia is quite late in the game with the healthy food scene but it is finally beginning to be up and coming in Jakarta. Thanks to graduates from overseas who appreciate such food trends, Berrywell was opened! My friend and I, who used to obsess about healthy bowls back in Australia, couldn’t give this a miss.
They have two bowl sizes depending if you rather have this for your main meal, or perhaps for a pre/post workout snack.
Berrywell does not use sugar at all, and all the sweetness of every bowl comes mainly from the fruits. We wanted to try any bowl with acai content but sadly it was being stuck in customs all the way from Brazil. But that’s okay, we got to try other alternatives such as this Green Energy Smoothie bowl. I love everything about it. The liquid content was a mix of spinach, green tea, banana, pineapple and milk. If you do not like green juice, this might just change your mind because its sweet anyway. The consistency was like melted gelato and we loved every scoop of it.
PB & B really caught my eye and I am guessing that it stands for Peanut Butter & Banana. Combine the two ingredients with milk and you create something special. This bowl could be said as the most sinful bowl, but hey, its still healthy right? Peanut butter is extremely rich in monounsaturated fats that helps prevent heart disease, and its unlikely for your body to store them as body fats. This is what you call true love in a bowl.
I couldn’t help but to grab a slice of Carrot Cake here since we ordered the smaller bowls of the healthy bowls anyway, so we deserve to share a cake. It wasn’t so sweet which we love and appreciate. Simple, small, good enough of a portion to not overeat but still feel contented at the end of the day.
I am actually quite surprised that many people have these healthy bowls for desserts. Perhaps it might still be difficult for locals to transition the idea of a fulfilling meal sometimes does not involve rice or noodles. But we see a positive change in the market, and I think Berrywell targets the increasing numbers of the healthy conscious, overseas graduates, expats, the younger generation office workers working around the area, or maybe there are those adventurers who just wants to try something new.
I love Berrywell and would be coming back again and again that’s for sure.
