Energy Boosting Blast

I’m amazed at the amount of energy I have lately. Since I’m finally getting back into exercising regularly, being able to put in a good work out has been a dream come true. Not long ago, I was so out of shape that my workout sessions didn’t last long. I rarely made it to fifteen minutes. It was boring, and instead of enjoying the experience, I felt extremely uncomfortable. I didn’t get much out of going to the gym and soon [...]

From Processed Food to Processing Produce

I am a city girl who has gone country. Ten years ago, I wouldn’t believe some of the things that I eat now. Back in the day, I was a grab-food-on-the-go type of person. Every plate was a brown plate. No veggies to speak of, with the exception of a salad every once in a while, a salad topped with tons of cheese and drenched in salad dressing. Today, I won’t go anywhere near that salad! My cabinets used to [...]

50 Ways to Fill Your Blast Cup

I admit that I have a vivid imagination. I drink two NutriBlasts a day, so it’s in my best interest to keep my taste buds happy. Sometimes I use silly ideas to get the creative juices flowing. One day, I asked myself, “What if I am given fifty seconds and fifty dollars to gather everything I needed for fifty NutriBlasts?” The name of the game would be Fifty Ways to Fill Your Blast Cup. The final question always remains: Could [...]

Nothing compliments a party better than a pitcher full of fruity beverages, courtesy of my trusty NutriBullet. [...]

Pineapple Blast

When I bought my NutriBullet, I guess you can say I was ahead of the curve. Most people had no idea what it was and I had to explain the concept of NutriBlasting to friends, family and colleagues. Not gonna lie, some folks frowned at it. Some waved it off as a passing fad and some folks laughed in my face. Many months later, those same folks are proud owners of their own NutriBullet! My boss was probably the most [...]

I am always coming up with new ways to use my NutriBullet. I’m having a lot of fun with this little kitchen “toy” that I purchased back in 2012. So far, I’ve learned how to make candy bars, fruit pops, mock ice cream, pureed soups, applesauce, milkshakes, meat sauces, and a variety of salad dressings. Learning how to make these delicious concoctions has been a culinary pleasure! I look forward to creating more new recipes, unleashing my creative side. One [...]

Baby Kale blast

Now that I’m a pro NutriBlaster, I have learned to love my greens, especially my green NutriBlasts.  Lately, I’ve been expanding my horizons on the leafy greens.  I just discovered and have fallen in love with baby kale. Unlike the regular kale, the little sister baby kale has smaller more tender leaves with a milder taste. Personally, I think it is more versatile and palatable than the large leaves. Fresh baby kale comes packed with nutrients the body needs to [...]

I love trying new things with my NutriBullet. I’ve made great tasting pureed soups, sauces, faux ice cream and even some candy bars! My latest adventure is making homemade salad dressing. I made a few salad dressings last summer and now that we’re into salad season again, I want to increase my recipe collection. I am slowly getting away from buying bottled salad dressing; making your own at home is a unique art form. It gives me a chance to [...]

fresh fruit pops feat

The weather is finally warming up and summer is almost here! When I was growing up, popsicles were staples around my house. My favorite was the Windex blue-colored Otter Pop. These days, nothing that shade of blue will be eaten in my house! It’s easy to keep things cool with popsicles. Now that I’m older, I crave a little bit more than blue sugar water. The great thing about making my own is that they are super simple and require [...]
