Rather than list a bunch of familiar but somewhat foreign ingredients like boku, spirulina and baobab, Backyard Bowls breaks down what each of them are, both in its handful of stores and online. A local favorite that's been open now for nearly a decade, BYB (as its fans call it) is the go-to spot for acai bowls, smoothies and breakfast bowls. Its nut milks -- cashew and hemp -- are made in house and to order if you'd like to take them to go. Try the namesake Backyard Bowl, that combines berries and bee pollen, or for something a bit more earthy, Diego's Power Bowl features hemp protein and peanut butter hemp milk.
