Jasmin joined Team NutriBullet hoping to better her health and what has happened since changed her life.
Check out Jasmin’s story below and let us know: why do you NutriBlast?
Whenever I’m vacationing with friends, there is at least a day or two when I won’t have a NutriBlast for breakfast. They know how much I enjoy drinking them that a regular sit-down breakfast place has to be spot on. Well, at least that’s the theory.
Being a foodie, I appreciate great food cooked well, especially food that was locally grown. My palate likes a range of diverse flavors enhanced by skilled seasoning and nice presentation. I think drinking my NutriBlast every day has really enhanced my daily dining experience, especially when I am on vacation. My body has been conditioned to consume fresh fruits and vegetables, nut milks, flavored teas and raw honey. I am fortunate to get produce at the peak of freshness and I don’t take it for granted. My vegetables are vibrant and green and the fruit is slightly sweet and full of flavor. Just the thought of it makes me want to make a NutriBlast right now! My stomach absolutely loves them.
So, whenever I go out to eat with friends, I want to eat a meal that is incredible. It is not being a picky eater, it’s having a well-defined appreciation for good, fresh, local food that has been prepared simply, but with a lot of flavor and a little pizzazz.
Dining on vacation is exciting, especially when I’m trying new things. It reminds me of when I try new produce in my NutriBlasts. I am willing to experiment, but I still want the end result to be delicious.
Sometimes I’ll rely on the restaurant staff to guide my new culinary experience. I often ask for their recommendations and it’s fun to watch as their entire demeanor relaxes and they tell me their favorite items on the menu. As I’m eating, they follow up to make sure I am enjoying their selection.
On vacation, I don’t have to eat in a rush. I can relax and enjoy the company of great friends and family while eating wonderfully prepared food.
I love my NutriBlasts and I even drink them on vacation and, whenever I go out to eat, I want to make sure that I eat something that will awaken and excite my palate. The next morning, I usually go right back to my NutriBlast. Luckily, the transition is seamless for me.

I admit that I love fruit. I can eat it in a variety of forms: fresh, frozen, dried, and pureed. To eat fruit that has been baked in pies, tarts, and cobblers is a fantastic treat! I keep apples and bananas on my table and I have an assortment of fruit in my freezer. I like vegetables, but fruit makes my daily NutriBlasts taste absolutely delicious.
Who can resist the ruby red strawberries, beautiful blueberries, pretty peaches, precious plums and my favorite, those awesome apples? Orchards are located all over the state and I can find local produce all around me. Fruit consumed at the peak of freshness is a precious gift.
However, despite my love of fruit – or maybe because of it – I realized I need to scale back my fruit consumption every week.
I have no issues with blood sugar, but I know many people who are watching their sugar intake. I want to encourage them with my Blast recipes and thus, I decided to revamp some of my recipes with more vegetables. This also gives me an opportunity to learn more about the wide variety of vegetables that are out there. There are many veggies that I have not tried yet and I am committed to trying new vegetables each month and start adding new ones to my NutriBlasts.
I admit it, I am a fruit lover, so limiting the goodness of nature’s bountiful fruit is not easy for me, but as I slowly increase the amount of vegetables in my diet, it is going to make this transition much easier.
As I prepared for a seven-hour drive back home, I was a bit nervous. I was still recovering from a head cold and I didn’t want to get sleepy on the way home. To avoid this, I didn’t take any medicine and only had a few cough drops.
So after eating breakfast with the family, I made two large NutriBlasts and a cup of coffee. I added some of my NutriBullet Superfood Energy Boost in each Blast since I could use the extra energy to get me home.
Unfortunately, there was heavy traffic shortly after I got on the highway. For the next two hours, I barely drove more than twenty miles an hour. Fortunately, I didn’t get restless. I just turned on some rocking music and waited out the traffic jam. As the hours slowly passed, I didn’t get tired. I couldn’t credit the coffee for keeping me awake because every time I took a sip of it, I started coughing, so I stopped drinking it. Instead, I sat back and sipped my delicious Blasts and settled in for the drive. I’d make a routine stop every few hours and those pit stops were enough for me to stretch my legs and get back on the road. I’ve never driven so long without getting tired or sleepy. I didn’t need to take a cat nap at a rest stop. I was good to go.
The road trip did have a few drawbacks though. Nine hours of coughing, sneezing and wiping a constantly running nose was nothing to sneeze at, (forgive the pun!) I went through so much facial tissue on this trip, I thought of investing in the tissue company.
It was a very long drive, but in the end, it wasn’t that bad. Instead of feeling drained and miserable, my energy level was high and I stayed alert for the entire drive. Driving so long with a bad head cold and not passing out at the front door was amazing to me. I owe it all to that Superfood Energy Boost!
I’ve been using the Boost occasionally, but this road trip sold me on the advantages of using it every day. I’m making it a part of my daily Blasting routine from now on!
