Blast in Boulder

I first learnt what a boulder was when I watched Shrek for the first time as a kid. Then as I learnt more about the world I became aware of the city Boulder in Colorado.

Boulder is a city about an hour outside of Denver, on the way to Rocky Mountain National Park.

It is a very cute city full of active families, university students and the health food scene is very prominent.

While I checked out vegetarian eateries, farmer-focused cafes and organic food options, a unique foodie hotspot in University Hill was Rush Bowls.

A rush bowl consists of a smoothie-type thick bowl of fresh fruits with a crunchy granola topping. They are great as a snack in between meals, an accompaniment to a main meal, or even post-workout as some Rush Bowls contain a good amount of protein added to them.

I highly recommend you try a Rush Bowl if you are in Boulder. If you are living in, or visiting, the US be sure to try a Grab n’ Go bowl from grocery stores such as Whole Foods.

If you are keen to make your own Rush Bowl – which I will be doing as soon as I get back on Aussie land – check out the blog Apples Under My Bed for some great soft serves which are healthy and somewhat similar to a Rush Bowl. Try the Turkish Delight Banana Soft Serve or the Banana Soft Serve with Toasted Seeds and Nut Butter Topping.

Enjoy!


 

Here are some other photos of my time in Boulder and then Rocky Mountain National Park.
