My Acai & Lychee Dream Bowl ($1200JMD) from Dream Bowls Ja at Kingston Night Market on Tuesday, July 2, 2019.

You can get your daily source of fruits in 1 bowl, your very own Dream bowl! Dream bowls are not only tasty, but healthy. Although you have to be aware of the toppings you choose.

Dream Bowls consist of a frozen base filled with the Acai (a-sigh-ee) berry. Although not sourced locally, they are good for just about everything in terms of its heath properties. Check it out here:

You then have the option to choose 5 toppings that they will layer the base with, resulting in quite an attractive, yet tasty and fulfilling Dream Bowl.

Visit Kingston Night Market today from 6 to 11pm at 8 Hillcrest Avenue to get your Dream Bowl!

ADMISSION: FREE

***I advise you go early though, the Dream bowls are a hit.***

If not, Deliveries in Kingston are available too!

Kingston Night Market is an event where small businesses showcase their authentic Jamaican products. It is quite fit for a family outing during the week, this and every Tuesday. Check it out!

IMG-20190319-WA0001

Non-profit organization, New Kingston Rotaract Club (Youth arm of Rotary) is having their annual Wing Sauce Competition this Saturday, March 30th by the Mona Dam. Like last year, they are having a Farmer’s Market too, encouraging us to eat healthy and buy our local produce, while contributing to charity at the same time. It’s a win-win for everyone.

Judging and sampling usually takes place at about 2:30/3:00pm. Suga will be judging again!

Then you can head down to the National Stadium to watch our very own young athletes put on quite a show at Champs! The writing is on the wall for the Girls with Edwin Allen, but for the Boys, will KC beat Calabar this year as they seem to be in position to do, or did they peak too early in the season?

Keep up with Suga Lifestyle’s Facebook and Instagram Page to keep updated with Champs and keep up with the New Kingston Rotaract Club by following them on Instagram @nkrcjamaica. If you are between the ages of 18-30, see how you can join them!
