Do you talk to yourself when you NutriBlast? I’m not embarrassed to admit it – I do!

Honestly, it’s pretty funny. I’ve caught myself talking out loud in my office a few times as I sip on my Tall NutriBullet cup. “Oh, that’s good!”

I try to make my NutriBlasts tasty and, most days, I’m successful. In fact, some days, I really knock it out of the ballpark! My breakfast can be absolutely fantastic, from the first sip to the final slurp of the straw! And, as someone who gets bored pretty quickly, I’m surprised I’ve been able to adopt NutriBlasting as a lifestyle choice.

And yes, others talk to me about my Blasts, too! While I’m ooh-ing and ahh-ing, my officemates crack jokes about my “pond scum,” or my “green goo,” but I laugh right on with them and feel confident because I know that I’m doing my body good. After all, they’re entitled to their skepticism and I thoroughly enjoy the benefits of drinking my delicious smoothies every morning.

The cool blend of berries, nuts, almond milk, protein powder, a hint of kale, it tastes more like a milkshake than anything else. Now, my tastebuds crave the delicious flavor and my body enjoys the nutrition. With every sip, I can’t help but smile.

So, it’s no surprise I talk to myself; I love every minute of it!

Inflammation Blast

It’s a bummer getting old. Even being as active as I am, parts of my body creak that aren’t supposed to make noise. Whether it’s the onset of arthritis or I picked something up wrong, it always seems to be the same problem: inflammation.

Inflammation is the body’s attempt at self-protection. It’s an immune response to something that is harmful or irritating to a specific area and marks an effort to heal itself.

Want to make a Blast that douses the flames of inflammation? Here’s a great little drink that is packed with anti-inflammatory compounds.

Pineapple Blast

Inflammation Blast

Ingredients

  • ½ fresh lime, peeled
  • 1 stalk of celery, chunked
  • 1 cup of cucumber with skin
  • ½ cup pineapple, fresh or frozen
  • 2 tablespoons of ground flax seeds
  • coconut water to line
  • 3 ice cubes

Directions 

Add all ingredients to your Tall NutriBullet Cup and extract until smooth.

 

Fruits, like pineapple, are a rich source of flavonoids and antioxidants that help quiet the inflammatory noise in the body. Pineapple is well known for containing bromelain, a pain and inflammation-relieving enzyme concentrated in the core of the fruit. Flax seeds are bursting with omega 3 fatty acids, which are also potent anti-inflammatory aids, as well.

Remember, next time you feel a little sore or creaky, try whipping up a Blast before you reach for the Ibuprofen. Add this recipe to your list of anti-inflammatory solutions. Moreover, all the ingredients help reduce inflammation and have a cooling effect. You have nothing to lose, but the pain.

Enjoy!

I’ve been an advocate of the NutriBlasting lifestyle for two years now. I absolutely love being a Blaster and I’ll tell anyone that will listen about my adventures. However, despite my excitement, I’m no expert! I certainly make my share of mistakes along the way. I am still learning a lot and this keeps it interesting for me.

I love reading posts from people who have just made their first Blast and who absolutely loved it. I’m always there to lend a hand and I love offering suggestions, but I hate telling people what to do! One of the great things about NutriBlasting is that the experience is super versatile. I can create a different Blast every day if I wanted to and I have so much fun doing it.

What’s the one bit of advice for NutriBlasting newbies?

Be adventurous and experiment, but if you’re new to the whole thing, start with the produce you like the most. My taste buds are not the same as someone else’s and what may taste awesome to me may not taste that great to someone else. The fun is figuring it all out!

I am glad to see more of my friends, family members, and acquaintances from near and far discovering this adventure for themselves. Have fun and let me know, what’s your favorite Blast?
