BY Marin Magazine – Acai — pronounced ah-sigh-ee — berries are even richer in antioxidants than cranberries, raspberries, blackberries, strawberries or blueberries, and shops whipping up bowls featuring this powerful ingredient are popping up countywide. Adding to the health quotient: the mixtures in these places are pure, with no added fillers like ice or frozen yogurt — only the berry best.

Vitality Bowls started in Northern California and are now all across the country. In Marin, owner Henry Kim runs the Mill Valley and new Sausalito outposts. The signature antioxidant-rich menu includes breakfast, lunch and dinner made to order, with many tricky-to-pronounce superfoods like acerola, spirulina, aronia and moringa, to name a few.
