Homemade VS Store Bought copy

Homemade or Store-Bought?

Recently, I’ve noticed more people on the nutrition bandwagon in my neighborhood. Several new juice and smoothie bars have opened up all over town. So, since I consider myself a NutriBullet Blasting connoisseur, I thought I would check out the buzz around my hood. Sad to say – it was disappointing. At one of the new places (a big franchise, no less), their idea of a nourishing drink was sports powder (their own brand) dumped into a cup of water and blended. This [...]

Breakfast Gone Bananas!

Do you talk to yourself when you NutriBlast? I’m not embarrassed to admit it – I do! Honestly, it’s pretty funny. I’ve caught myself talking out loud in my office a few times as I sip on my Tall NutriBullet cup. “Oh, that’s good!” I try to make my NutriBlasts tasty and, most days, I’m successful. In fact, some days, I really knock it out of the ballpark! My breakfast can be absolutely fantastic, from the first sip to the final slurp [...]

NutriBlast

People have different goals with their NutriBullet. Some want to lose weight, others want to build their immune systems, reduce their blood pressure or cholesterol levels, or simply use it as a tool to help to change poor eating habits. Many of us, including myself, have multiple health goals. The good news is that combining certain ingredients and using the NutriBullet on a regular basis has been shown to address a number of health concerns. We read about and share [...]

Mango Lime Kale Blast

NutriBlasts are the perfect morning breakfast replacement. I especially enjoy them after a hard morning workout. It helps clear your body of metabolic waste, cleanse the colon and gives you an energy boost to start the day. Here’s a terrific combination: mango lime and kale. Mangos are super fruits rich in beta-carotene, limes are loaded with vitamin C and kale is rich in vitamin A, as well as calcium. This mixture is a refreshing combination bursting full of vitamins and [...]

strawberry salad

I love salads. I never grow tired of the endless combinations. I can eat them either as a side dish or as the main event, I can eat them vegan, vegetarian or with grilled chicken.  I am always in search of new fascinating ways to use fresh fruits and veggies. I just came across this fabulous fresh strawberry salad that’s accompanied by a fantastic strawberry vinaigrette, courtesy of Rachael Ray.  It’s so quick and easy. Strawberry Balsamic Vinaigrette Dressing 2 [...]

Green smoothies are a tough sell in my house. That’s why I love St Patrick’s Day. It gives me an excuse to serve green food and the kids just think I put food coloring in! I served a green food every day leading up to St Patty’s day: Green Eggs and Ham, green turkey meatballs, green hummus (made with spinach), celery with green veggie dip (made with Greek yogurt, arugula and garlic) and a Green Honeydew Shamrock Shake. Two important [...]

battling the bulge

Trying to lose weight is a humbling experience. It’s something that I’ve struggled with for most of my life and the fact that it’s still an issue for me is not very empowering. However, this time, I feel I have the tools to win the battle for good. I was so tired of looking like the “before” photo; I want to look like the “after” photo and I know I’m on my way. I’m learning more about eating healthy, modifying [...]

All of my friends and family know how great the NutriBullet experience has been for me, especially in terms of sleep. I immediately realized the benefits when I was springing up in the morning and going strong all day. I started off Blasting to replace breakfast and dinner and lost 7 lbs in the first week. Since then though, I’ve introduced dinners back in most days of the week, but I still have tons of energy and look forward to [...]

NB Fruits and Nuts

My NutriBullet rarely gets a break, and why should it? My benefits in using it on a consistent basis include better immune function, increased energy, weight control and looking and feeling better. If I’m not preparing a NutriBlast for myself, I’m making something tasty and healthy for my husband or for company. I travel with it whenever possible and I even get asked to bring it with me when I am an invited guest to someone’s house. Like so many [...]

chicken-fingers-lauripatterson-istock

Chicken fingers get a bad rap. They’re considered junk food and are typically served in fast food restaurants, sold in the frozen section or on the greasy kid’s menus. All of this for good reason! They’re historically chicken fillers and biproducts, breaded and fried in hydrogenated oil. While there are some brands whose labels claim “less fat,” “no trans fat,” or “whole grain breading,” we need to be smarter. Did you know that they can claim “no trans fats” as [...]

My whole life I’ve struggled with my health. I’ve tried all sorts of different diets and supplements and they’ve only kept me on a never-ending rollercoaster where I’d go up and down on the scale. I found it so hard to consistently eat healthy foods. In January of 2013, I hit my rock bottom. Luckily, around that time a series of events took place that would soon change my life forever. I went to the dentist, who told me I [...]
