My eating habits have come a long way. I remember there was a time in my early 20s when I lived on coffee and Snickers bars. I was so thin and unhealthy looking. In fact, I had issues conceiving for years until I gained some weight and started eating better. For the past year and half, I’ve been making a concentrated effort to improve my lifestyle. I’m walking more, drinking lots of water and eating more fruits and veggies. Still I know there’s always room for improvement.
One new thing I’ve added into my regime is smoothies made in my NutriBullet. I normally had just made fruit smoothies in the past, but the NutriBullet has motivated me to step things up a notch. Now, I’ve added both fruit AND veggies to my smoothies. Yep, I’m drinking my veggies. That’s something I NEVER thought I would do!
The NutriBullet is different from your regular blender and juicer. It extracts the nutrients from the ingredients and breaks them down into a superfood. For instance, say you had some grapes you wanted to eat for a quick snack. A juicer would catch the seeds and skins in its strainer basket while a blender would not be able to handle the seeds and stems. The NutriBullet, however, would be able to break down everything allowing your body to access all the nutrients found in the stems, skin and seeds. I learned that’s where the highest amount of nutrients are in a grape. I would have never thought to include those in a smoothie prior to trying out the NutriBullet.
The NutriBullet comes with cups (tall and short) with handles, stay fresh lids, an extractor blade, a milling blade, a user manual/recipe book and a pocket nutritionist. It’s powerful enough to burst open seeds, shred tough skins, crack through stems on those tough to eat foods.
The NutriBullet is what you need to make yourself a NutriBlast. It’s a nutrient extracted drink that will feed your body fruits and veggies in an easy to absorb format. It follows a basic formula: 50% leafy greens, 50% fruit and a 1/4 cup seeds, nuts or super boosts (optional). Add in some water to cover everything and blend away.
I made the Vita-Berry Blast with some spinach, blueberries, strawberries, banana and water. They recommend adding in either a banana or avocado for the creaminess factor
I used the extractor blade and popped it on my NutriBullet. To work the NutriBullet, you just need to put the cup on the power base and press down and twist for the motor to start extracting. Once I saw that it was all mixed together, I knew it was ready to drink.
Taste wise, it was yummy! It tasted fruity to me and I even gave John one and he had NO CLUE there was spinach in there. He wouldn’t have drank it if he had known!
Drinking a NutriBlast every day will help to increase your energy, improve sleep, digestion, hair, skin and nails and even reduce stress. I could use help in every single one of those areas. I’m sure many of us could!
I love the large amount of recipes found in the Recipe book. They have combinations in there that I never would have even thought to try! They also have information on the NutriBullet Superfood 6 Week Transformation Plan. It lists out meal plans, recipes, eating schedules and tips on how to take control over your health. I need to lose my last 10 lbs so I’m considering trying it myself.
The NutriBullet also comes with a Milling Blade to extract nutrients from dry ingredients. It can be used to mill oats, nuts and seeds. This would be neat to make my own flour.
The Pocket Nutritionist is a handy little book with everything you need to know about fruits, vegetables and the boosts (ie nuts, berries, seeds, etc). It lists the benefits and what you should look for when selecting what to buy at the store.
I like how the NutriBullet is so simple to use. It’s basically ready to use when you take out of the box and there’s nothing complicated about it. Just add your ingredients to the cup, add the blade and extract away. You can drink it right from the cup you used to extract everything thanks to the handles.
To clean, wash the blades in warm soapy water only. They aren’t supposed to go in the dishwasher.
I’m looking forward to testing out more of the recipes and coming up with a few of my own. I’ll be experimenting to see which fruits and veggie combinations I like the best.
Buy a NutriBullet for $119.94 and they also have a payment plan if you prefer to spread the amount over a few payments.
