Last month, when I dropped off my car for an oil change, the manager was very curious about what I was drinking. In fact, he stopped what he was doing and asked me about my NutriBlast.

When I told him what it was and what was in there, he frowned. He stiffened up and didn’t seem convinced that it could actually taste good. One of his employees, familiar with NutriBullet and the benefits of fruit and veggie intake, walked in and echoed my comments, but the manager still looked doubtful. He was curious, and I was definitely glad about that, even though he didn’t seem quite ready to take the next step.

I can talk to anyone about what it’s like to drink fresh produce in a cool, smooth delicious drink. The fear factor is definitely gone and I like to encourage people to try it for themselves. Now, when people come up to me to ask about my green drink, I’m overjoyed!

Recently, a co-worker approached me about the NutriBullet. For the past couple of years, he’s been calling my scrumptious breakfasts “green goo” and he just couldn’t understand why I would happily drink them every morning. When he joked about my “pond scum,” I laughed and offered to bring him a sample the next day. I knew that I was drinking something beneficial to my body and his humor only fueled me more.

Well, a few weeks ago, this same gentleman walked up and asked me more details about my NutriBlasts. I told him that I have been drinking them for two years now and still love drinking them every single morning. I’m just as excited as I was the first day I started Blasting and I don’t suffer as much from the skin and respiratory allergies that used to plague me. I think that impressed him the most. He said he might buy a NutriBullet for himself.

It can be hard trying to convince others about the health benefits  of green drinks, but once I finished drinking my very first Blast, I knew I had stumbled on something that I could keep up on a long-term basis. I’m excited that more people are finally on the healthy eating (and drinking!) bandwagon and I’m glad I can help them discover the benefits that NutriBlasting can have on their health.

One of the great benefits of NutriBlasting is my increased level of energy.

From the moment I get up in the morning, I’m going full-steam ahead. My boss is very busy and I need to stay busy to keep up with her. Adding in the time to exercise, travel, cook, do chores and spend time with family and friends means my energy can’t wane.

I don’t know what I would do without my daily NutriBlast. I know my life would move a lot more slowly and it wouldn’t be nearly as interesting. I certainly wouldn’t’ get that much done!

Recently, I had an aha! moment. As I climbed underneath my bed to find an electric outlet after moving furniture around, I realized that I was not the same woman I was before. Years ago, I wouldn’t even consider doing that because I was heavier, more lethargic and my allergies would immediately flare up and give me a fit.

When I pulled myself out from underneath the bed, I was fine. In fact, I felt more than fine. I felt empowered!

I’m doing more at work and at home and I find myself with energy to spare. I’ve put off doing things for a long time and I’m slowly, but surely accomplishing those tasks.

Every week, this former procrastinator is knocking things off of her to-do list and that makes me feel incredible.

What’s stopping you from gaining the energy you need?

This is the time of year when a lot of us look at our accomplishments in life and start to make some necessary adjustments. Personally, I don’t like the word resolution. It sounds too stiff, inflexible and boring! I much prefer the phrase long-term goal.

Like most people, I have a lot of goals to accomplish. Some of these are too much to take on in just one year, but when I break them down into smaller goals and create an action plan, I’m more successful in getting them accomplished down the road. I try not to get too crazy about the details, but a little structure is essential.

One of my goals is to get a NutriBullet Rx so I can fulfill my goal of making 12 delicious soups this year. It’s healthful, divide-and-conquerable, and with one soup to make each month, it’s definitely manageable!

Before I started making my NutriBlasts, I knew there were a few things I needed to learn to do on a consistent basis, such as buying produce and actually eating it! I also needed to learn how to clean and store my produce properly and schedule time each morning for my NutriBlasts. That was important for me to get down, especially on busy mornings. I started setting my clothes out the night before and discovered that this way, I had plenty of time to make my NutriBlasts every morning.

Little by little, I started buying nuts and seeds that I could add to my NutriBlasts, learning more about them and including them in my Blasts daily. First almonds and sunflower seeds. Later, I added walnuts, pecans, and Brazil nuts to my rotation.

My last NutriBullet goal was to find a way to purchase my food without breaking the bank every month.

Little did I know that Blasting would give me the energy I needed to tackle the other goals on my list throughout the year. Action plans require energy – focused energy. I was able to get that energy from my NutriBlasts. It was a productive circle of accomplishment and I was tackling those items on my list one by one.

Now – it all begins again! I’m on the smoothie bandwagon and the results are tangible. When I think of working on my goals for the days, weeks, months, and year now, I drink my NutriBlast and dive right in.

I can’t think of a better way to celebrate the holidays and ring in the New Year than for everyone I know to be healthy and happy. As a loyal NutriBullet fan, I happen to own the entire line of products because I know what they have done and can do to help me, my family and friends stay as healthy as possible. So it warms my heart to run into complete strangers who also use the NutriBullet.

I already had a pretty good idea about the kinds of differences the NutriBullet has made in people’s lives from reading numerous stories and comments online, but just over the past week, I have heard some pretty wonderful stories in person and by complete coincidence.

On Thanksgiving Day, our cable company actually sent someone out to fix an issue. As the gentleman arrived, I had just prepared a NutriBlast and had it in my hand. He asked me if I used the NutriBullet. This 20-something-year-old was so excited to share with me that he does not go a day without making a NutriBlast. He keeps it in his van, where he can plug it in and power it up.
He went on to tell me how it has changed his eating habits. He used to hang out with his co-workers at burger joints for lunch and realized that it was making him sluggish the rest of the day. It was difficult to eat well since he traveled so much for his job. The NutriBullet was the perfect solution. Each day he packs a baggie full of veggies and fruits and puts it in a small cooler so that he can make a NutriBlast. We discussed some simple recipes and I shared the benefits of adding boosts, and from his reaction, you would have thought that I handed him a hundred dollars!

The following day, I decided to take advantage of black Friday deals. I was at a well-known department store and it was pretty crazy. This woman was frantically looking for a NutriBullet and could not find anyone to help her. She ultimately found one of the few left on the table and ended up behind me in what seemed to be a never-ending check out experience. Of course, we began to discuss her purchase. She brought me to tears when she told me how the NutriBullet is changing the lives of family members, one in particular who has been battling cancer for a very long time and has trouble consuming vegetables. I shared how the NutriBullet helped me after a cancer diagnosis and treatment. It was a beautiful conversation and both us left the store feeling great and not at all annoyed at the half-hour line we had just gotten through!

Clearly, NutriBullet is changing more and more lives every day. Their products are always on my holiday gift list because I can’t think of a better way to bring in the New Year than using this amazing resource to get people on track to eating healthier and feeling better.

Happy Holidays and wishing you all a great 2015!

The freezer is a great way to keep produce; it adds a nice chill to your NutriBlast and keeps much longer than storing it in the refrigerator. When I go to the grocery store, I already have a good idea of what I’m putting in the freezer the minute I get home!

For instance, I know exactly what I have to do when I buy beets. Wash, peel, cut (into chunks), and freeze. I like the taste of pineapple and after wasting so much by leaving them to rot in the fridge, I learned to buy a whole pineapple and cut it into bite-sized chunks and throw them straight into the freezer. Bananas, mangos, peaches, you  name it! All save perfectly in frozen chunks and make an excellent addition to your NutriBlasts. It all depends on how much room you save in your freezer!

Since I rarely use ice cubes in the winter, I took out an ice cube tray from the freezer and used the empty space for additional frozen produce. Currently, I have a bag of sliced, frozen red grapes and a cup of sliced banana chunks where that ice tray would be. The space comes in handy and since I have a small refrigerator, this is a tip I use quite often.

In the warmer months, I like to reduce the amount of regular food items in the rest of the freezer area to make room for additional produce. Just think – a little cleaning and you get fresh, deliciously frozen fruit and vegetables for a quick Blast. It couldn’t be easier!

I’ve learned that buying produce on sale and using my freezer to store my bounty helps to stretch my spending dollars throughout the year and that’s a great thing.
