A Lighter NutriBlaster

I’ve wanted to write this article for a long time now. After many years of struggling to lose weight, I have finally lost my first twenty pounds. For a while now, people have asked me for “the secret” to losing weight. I have learned a few things along the way, but I’m certainly no expert! The key for me is that there’s no secret; but there are some basic fundamentals to losing weight. These are the same bits of advice [...]

A Blast from the Past!

The questions I get asked the most are usually about recipes. How do I create recipes so easily? Well, it is very easy – I just combine my love for food with a bit of creativity! Sometimes I look to the past for a new recipe. A picture, an aroma, a flavor, or an event with family and friends could easily inspire a new recipe. I recently thumbed through some old Christmas magazines and when I saw pictures of eggnog, [...]

Are you setting up your child to be addicted to junk food? If you’ve got a junk-food rich diet, then there’s a chance you might be. According to new research from the University of Adelaide in Australia, mothers who eat junk food while pregnant are programming their babies to be addicted to a high fat, high sugar diet by the time they’re weaned.

There is just something about the first Blast of the day. I used to be a sleepyhead with a hard time getting out of bed, but these days, I feel more energetic than ever. I could probably make my Blasts with my eyes closed, but my eyes are determined and focused. I inspect my produce for any debris, insects, or bruises as I rinse them off under running water. As I reach for my favorite sharp knife, there’s no doubt: [...]

I made it through this last winter without anyone in my family getting sick! When there are six of us living under one roof, four of whom are children who go to school everyday with germs wondering about incognito, and one of us whom works in the Emergency Department of a hospital where germs are commonplace, this is an extraordinary achievement! So, my shock and surprise were no wonder when I received a phone call from the school nurse today [...]

When you get home, having something super delicious [...]

As we grow older, we learn many things about our world. We learn things like, love is complicated, or that we should “Sleep when the baby sleeps,” and we often learn that our parents weren’t always right.  And along the way, we learn that the best information in life is usually formed through experience – because who wants to listen to someone else’s hard earned knowledge? Not me, but I’m going to try and let you in on something I’ve [...]

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 [...]

Lemon Lime Detox

It’s that time of year again! Everywhere you go, people are sick with horrible springtime colds and flus. From the office to the kids’ schools, you’re going to run into somebody who’s coughing or hacking and telling you how crummy they feel. Why don’t people stay home when they are sick? Nothing is ever gained by going to work or school when you’re sick, except infecting the entire place. Not to sound like a germaphobe, but I was volunteering in [...]
