When you think about eating healthy, what’s the first thing that comes to mind? If you’re like most of us, you probably imagine a bowl filled with bland greens garnished with a few slices of grilled chicken, but this doesn’t have to be the case. At Kaia Bowls, a healthy food restaurant in Clearwater Beach, we openly embrace eating foods that make you feel your best, but we don’t let it detract from the authentic Hawaiian flavors we serve our customers each and every day.
With an array of signature acai, pitaya, and poke bowls suited for the full spectrum of dietary needs, our options are as diverse as our wonderful customers. We take pride in providing each and every customer with scrumptious eats that don’t take a toll on their waistline. Next time you’re choosing between flavor and nutrition, ask yourself — why not both?
1. Acai Bowls
Hailing from the acai palm in Central and South America, the acai berry is universally regarded as one of the most potent superfoods in existence. It pairs deliciously with other fruits and makes for the perfect bowl base, replacing less healthy options that are packed with carbohydrates that can leave you feeling bloated and tired.
Our signature acai bowls contain an assortment of delectable fruits including strawberries, blueberries, bananas, kiwi, pineapple, and mango. We always garnish with granola, but if you want to mix things up, consider sprinkling your acai bowl with coconut flakes, chia seeds, raw cacao nibs, or almonds. You can even drizzle on some honey or peanut butter to take our healthy bowls to the next level. We recommend starting with our namesake, the kaia bowl, for a perfect introduction to the wonderful world of acai.
2. Pitaya Bowls
Pitaya — otherwise known by its subjectively cooler and significantly more fearsome name: dragon fruit — is another delectable food that tastes as good as it makes you feel. Pitaya is loaded with nutrients, including magnesium and fiber, to help you maintain a healthy body weight and boost energy. It also supports gut health and strengthens the immune system, which means it can be an important contributor in a holistic health regimen.
Pitaya has properties that help you break down food and boost energy, which allows your body to function at its pinnacle. Every pitaya bowl at our healthy restaurant in Clearwater Beach features an assortment of pure pitaya, banana, pineapple, coconut milk, granola, and more. If you’re trying to sculpt your body for beach season, start with our playa linda in the morning and finish off the day with a hang 10.
3. Poke Bowls
Boosting your health with a bowl overflowing with fresh fruit is one way to trim down your waistline and ensure that you look and feel your best, but there are plenty of options for those who want to add a little protein to their diet. Case in point: poke bowls.
Poke bowls are a staple of Hawaiian cuisine that give your diet a protein-rich option to help you make it through the day. Typically, poke bowls feature fresh ahi tuna or salmon, but we decided to mix it up by adding additional options like shrimp and chicken so everyone can get in on the poke craze.
Whether you’re giving it 110% in the boardroom or chasing down your littles before soccer practice, a little protein goes a long way in helping you meet (and surpass) your daily goals. Say “oh yes” to our ono bowl featuring ahi tuna, nori, avocado, black sesame seeds, and more. If you prefer your protein from the land, our hana bowl (grilled chicken, carrots, pineapple, nori, avocado, sweet peppers, crispy beets, almonds, watercress, and teriyaki sauce) is the perfect poke bowl remix to satisfy even the pickiest palate.
