Hey Rush Bowls fans! My name is Julia Coats and I have been serving as the lead marketing intern this summer (Summer 2014) for Rush. I have been a dedicated Rush Bowls fan since August 2012. My CU freshman self stumbled upon Rush Bowls one day while walking to my sorority chapter meeting. It was love at first bite when I indulged in my Legend acai bowl.
I’ve never been a breakfast person. Even as a child, breakfast was the least exciting part about my day. My parents would constantly give me that generic lecture about the importance of having a balanced breakfast before you start your day, how you needed fuel to be able to focus on academics, sports, whatever the day may have in store for you…
My habits for not eating breakfast followed me to college, and it definitely came as a reality check to me when my performance throughout the day was not up to par because I skipped this meal. Now…I’m not much of a morning person either, so the struggle was “real” to get myself out of bed and to the dining hall to grab breakfast or downstairs to my own kitchen to whip up eggs and a toasted bagel.
This was until I discovered the grab-n-go Rush Bowls.
I have always considered myself to be one of Rush Bowls biggest fans, especially sophomore year when my residence was on 12th and Penn (right up the street from Rush). It made it so easy to go down the block to grab a smoothie. The grab-n-go bowls, however, are somewhat revolutionary. To my surprise, having these stocked in my freezer have actually helped me to start eating a more balanced and nutritious breakfast.
I’ll run downstairs right when I wake up, grab a grab-n-go bowl from the freezer, and allow it to defrost while I continue to get ready downstairs. By the time I’m downstairs in the kitchen ready to prepare the rest of my breakfast, my Rush Bowl is already defrosted and ready to consume.
There was one particular breakfast that proved to be one of the greatest breakfasts I’ve had in a very long time. I paired my Beach grab-n-go bowl with an omelette loaded with veggies, bacon, and a glass of fresh OJ. This was actually one of the first real breakfast meals I’ve had in months, and what surprised me the most was that I was more awake, proactive, and focused throughout the day. Pairing this indulgence with a meal I’ve never particularly been a fan of proved to be most helpful.
Power to the Rush Bowl for making me want to eat better, live a healthier lifestyle, and maintain a balanced diet.Read more
