The Truth is on Your Plate

One of the things that derailed my weight loss efforts early on was what I chose to eat when I was not drinking my NutriBlasts. Someone recommended that I keep a food journal to document what I ate, but I was too stubborn to do it. I was starting to eat healthier, but I was still in denial about some of food on my plate. Although I love drinking my NutriBlasts, my body had to deal with constant flux. I was [...]

Energy Boosting Blast

I’m amazed at the amount of energy I have lately. Since I’m finally getting back into exercising regularly, being able to put in a good work out has been a dream come true.

It was boring, and instead of enjoying the experience, I felt extremely uncomfortable. I didn’t get much out of going to the gym and soon [...]

From Processed Food to Processing Produce

I am a city girl who has gone country. Ten years ago, I wouldn’t believe some of the things that I eat now. Back in the day, I was a grab-food-on-the-go type of person. Every plate was a brown plate. No veggies to speak of, with the exception of a salad every once in a while, a salad topped with tons of cheese and drenched in salad dressing. Today, I won’t go anywhere near that salad! My cabinets used to [...]

Ginger Blast-feat

I am not a morning person. Never have been, never will be. I have a difficult time waking up, and if I miss my morning cup of joe, I feel groggy the entire day. That was until I discovered adding one little extra ingredient to my morning NutriBlast— ginger! Unlike coffee, ginger does not contain caffeine. Nevertheless, the heat that is packed into this little root is sure to rub the sleep out of your eyes and prepare you for [...]

A lot of people ask me how to make NutriBlasts taste good. Well, it’s easy for me since I already enjoy plenty of fruits and vegetables. I recently made a transition from processed food to whole, natural foods and my taste buds have been delighted by the change. Since there are farms nearby, there is plenty of fresh produce to sample.
