Did you know that açaí (pronounced “ah-sa-ee”) is vegan-friendly? Since it is a type of berry that is found on palm trees, it is considered a vegan food. Not to mention, açaí berries are rich in fibre and antioxidants making it a superfruit that can help with a variety of health concerns such as weight loss and detoxification.
