Celebrating our new Superfood Porridge Bar Beaming x Breakfast Criminals
Guest blog post by Ksenia Shira Lova of Breakfast Criminals
A little over a year ago, I got an email inviting me to visit a new superfood cafe in LA, Beaming. They didn’t realize that I lived in New York… but if you follow me on Instagram, you know that I have no trouble hopping on the plane for the right superfood breakfast.
A few weeks later, I led an acai bowl workshop at Beaming’s gorgeous Santa Monica location. Let me tell you: Beaming really got the whole wholesome, mindful, delicious lifestyle right. Smoothies, juices, salads and perfect texture smoothie bowls – it was love at first bite.
So when Beaming reached out to me a few months later with the exciting idea of collaborating on a co-branded superfood breakfast bar, I was in. The idea was to create an innovative, colorful build your own breakfast bar that would make you feel like a healthy, energized, radiant breakfast criminal.
The result is the Beaming x Breakfast Criminals Superfood Porridge Bar that’s already available at 4 Beaming locations! (Santa Monica, West Hollywood, La Jolla and San Diego.) The fun thing about it is the build your own element (pick your own base and toppings!) inspired by the breakfast workshops I’ve led.
Superfood porridge bar base choices:
- Superfood overnight oats uniquely soaked in mulberries, mesquite and lucuma
- Coconut chia pudding
- Matcha chia pudding
- Homemade coconut yogurt (coming June 1st)
- Wild berry chia jam
- Matcha cashew cream (for those who’re into matcha as much as I am!)
- Coconut cream
- Plus all the regular smoothie bowl toppings like granola, fresh berries and maple walnuts
I flew to LA to host a couple of Breakfast Criminals Club events at Beaming to celebrate the launch of the most dreamy breakfast bar – now I just need to have this installed at home 🙂
We started every morning with a ritual of hot water mixed with Vitality shot (turmeric, ginger, lemon) – the perfect way to wake up your metabolism. It detoxifies, alkalizes and builds your immunity (turmeric is one of the most healing superfoods on the planet!)
Then, we took a moment to write down our intention for the day. I’ve been doing this for a few weeks now every morning, and it’s seriously some kind of magic!
Ask yourself: how do I want to feel today? Then, take a moment to write down whatever’s coming to mind. Dream big. It can be adjectives, affirmations or abracadabra. Whatever carries the vibration of what you’d like to manifest.
And if you find yourself in LA, make sure you stop by the new Superfood Porridge Bar at Beaming. Share your breakfast with us on Instagram using #breakfastbeaming!
