Eating Healthier with More Options21
I used to walk around hungry.
Not to say I wouldn’t eat, but now that I have the NutriBullet, I usually have a Blast for breakfast and it holds me over well into lunchtime. I no longer walk around hungry and I feel like I have plenty of delectable options to choose from. I can cook a great meal from home or grab a light meal while I’m out. No longer do I get the urge to pull into the nearest drive through restaurant and eat a fat-laden meal. This girl has options!
As a matter of fact, I eat a lot less meat than I used to and I still have more options than ever before. I can take a whole chicken and make about twenty meals out of it. Not twenty servings, but twenty actual meals – something I never would’ve imagined. My project this year has been to make real, homemade soup. So far, I’ve made chili, tortilla soup, vegetable soup, clam chowder, ham and potato soup, spring rolls, salad sandwiches, enchiladas, pot pies, and more, all with chicken. Imagine making so many entirely different meals from one ingredient!
Every three or four months, after making plenty of room in the freezer, I’ll buy a whole cooked chicken and shred it into pieces to freeze and serve as the base of a meal later. In no time, these bags fill my freezer up to capacity. Whenever I need to fix a recipe requiring chicken, I take out a bag and build a meal around it. This method can be time consuming, but it also provides me with plenty of options down the road. I can use the broth I make as a base for most of my soup recipes and it’s a lot cheaper than buying it from the store.
I’ve learned a lot of tricks recently and I’m proud about finding ways to avoid throwing out food. Whatever produce isn’t going into the NutriBullet is used as an ingredient for one of my culinary delights. I’m thankful that I’ve found exciting ways to prepare good food – I’m eating well, I’m spending less money and I feel better than ever. Who said all you discovered with the NutriBullet was how to make Blasts?
