I love waking up to the thought of making a fresh NutriBlast. By the time I enter the kitchen, I already have an idea of what I want to place in my tall cup. Blasting awakens my senses. It feels strange even writing those words, considering I used to be a big sleepy head in the morning. Now, I actually look forward to getting my day started!
There is something special about hearing the snap of my greens, the aroma of fresh fruit and the taste of a freshly-made NutriBlast. I keep my fridge stocked with fresh and frozen produce so I always have great options to choose from. In four easy steps, I can make a wonderful breakfast in less than ten minutes. It takes longer driving down the street, let alone actually ordering breakfast from a fast food joint. I’ve learned to listen to my body and now, I’d much rather have a tasty blend of fruits, veggies and nuts on an empty stomach than a fat-laden and greasy breakfast.
NOt to mention, I feel great after drinking my Blasts. My weekday mornings can be hectic and unpredictable, so I’m grateful to have a great breakfast that will fill me up and give me the energy I need to make things happen. My Blasts keep me full well into lunch. Before I started Blasting, I needed something extra before lunch to keep me full. Sometimes, I would eat a boiled egg for additional protein. Luckily, I don’t need to do that anymore! A tall NutriBlast followed by a tall cup of water will hold my hunger off until lunchtime.
Plus, my breakfast Blast is a natural mood enhancer. Sometimes, my body feels so good after the first few sips of my Blast, it leads to some dancing around the house. I may not have much boogie time during the weekday morning, but my commute to work is certainly an enjoyable one.
I am still amazed that after all this time with my NutriBullet, I can still rock out many great tasting NutriBlasts. The process of Blasting is so easy and the rewards are phenomenal. How do you feel after your morning Blasts?
I was so happy to have children this Halloween season! It’s an excuse to go trick-or-treating and have first dibs on the good candy. However, this Halloween was going to be a little different.
We decided as a family we were not going to binge all at once. This year, we were going to keep the good and get rid of the bad. Because even the bad is good when you are desperate for candy. We made a deal: for every piece of wrapped sugar you consumed, you had to eat or drink something with veggies – the greener the better!
Now, getting kids (and husbands) to eat more veggies isn’t always easy, so our fun Halloween challenge would really put them to the test! We are pretty good over-actors in my family, so masking our delight or disgust would prove to be interesting. It was going to be a fun night.
We all know a greener NutriBlast can provide you with more energy, regular digestion and greater weight loss. This adds up to a happy person! I found this recipe on Squidoo. I know the combination sounds pretty awful and it does turn a disgusting shade of brown-green, but it’s really not bad. Matter of fact, it tastes pretty good!
Deadly Healthy Broomcoli Blast
- 1 large carrot, chopped
- 4–5 florets of broccoli
- large handful of spinach
- 1 apple, cored and chopped
- 1 orange, peeled and sectioned
- 2-3 ice cubes
- Water to line
Add all ingredients to the large NutriBullet cup and extract. Go sit on your broom, take off and enjoy. Feel the green goodness surging through your body instead of the candy. Show those kids (and husbands) you are not afraid of a little green! This is a perfect opportunity for some good family bonding while boosting everyone’s immune system. It’s just what my little goblins needed!
“Delores, what are you drinking today?”
I hear this question often. My friends and co-workers realize that my daily NutriBlasts are not a fad, but a way of life with me. They have become increasingly curious to see why I am still so excited about drinking them every day.
I take pride in making my morning NutriBlasts. They are yummy and they keep me going through a hectic day. It didn’t take long for me to nail down the four basic steps in my Blasting formula.
First, I add some fresh leafy greens, some fresh or frozen fruit, nuts, and the liquid of choice up to the max line. I usually add some supplemental boosts such as protein powder, chia seeds, flaxseed, or some Energy Boost. Sometimes, I may get a little fancy with the ingredients, but generally, I like to keep things simple.
First thing’s first in the morning: pick out what I plan to put in my NutriBlast. It is so easy when I have produce at the peak of freshness. Blasting has trained me to pick good produce and when I place my items in my NutriBullet cup, I’m confident that I’m making something delicious and good for my health. Now, I have to be honest. Every now and then, I crank out a dud, but I have learned to tweak those substandard Blasts into something spectacular!
When I first started bringing my NutriBlasts into work, I used to hear a lot of comments, most of which were not very nice. However, despite negative looks and outbursts of criticism, I continued to drink them. I loved the way I felt after drinking them and I knew I was giving my body the great gift of healthy nutrition.
Slowly but surely, the looks transformed from criticism to curiosity. The frowns turned into puzzled stares and the stares turned into smiles. It is completely natural to see me carrying my NutriBullet cup because it has become a way of life for me.
When I first started this journey, I never thought I would love it so much. Two years ago, the idea of drinking a meal did not appeal to me at all, but fast forward to today and I look forward to drinking one each day.

I admit: for years, I had a love-hate relationship with beets. I liked them in a tossed salad, but beyond that, I didn’t eat them much. I tried them in my Blasts a few times and they were hard to drink. Very hard.
I didn’t see why people raved about those weird looking things. They tasted way too earthy for me; eating them felt like I was eating dirt. However, I was curious enough to try and figure this thing out. Too many people loved beets for me to hate the taste so much. I was willing to give those purple bulbs another try.
Then, a fellow NutriBlaster gave me a tremendous tip about beets: wash them very well, cut them into chunks and freeze them. Then, I’d add a few chunks into my Blast and extract. Once I did that, it changed my view on beets forever.
I don’t fully understand the science behind the change in the taste of beet as they go from fresh to frozen; all I know is that they went from nearly inedible to delicious. No longer did I need to chase them down with a cup of blueberries or a bunch of raw honey. I’ve made many NutriBlasts now with those sweet beets, which also help give me energy, and for that, I am forever grateful.
