Every week, we invest a certain amount of money into our grocery shopping. Most of us are on a budget and we don’t want to end up throwing away food. Luckily, NutriBlasting helped me learn how to store, cook and eat food in a way that helped me get the most out of my money.

Learning to Eat Healthy in the Land of Fried Food

When I decided to get healthier, I realized that I would have to step out of my comfort zone and march to the beat of a different drum. Living in the South, also known as The Land of Fried Food, there is always fattening food all around me. They just love to drop things into vats of grease! I realized that to be successful when it came to healthy eating, I would have to be creative and flexible. This was […]

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 […]

NutriBullet 5-20-14 0014FEAT

Learning From My MistakesI still make my share of mistakes on my quest to eat healthier.

I used to have a big problem with my cheat day, a day during the week where I rewarded myself by eating regular food that I didn’t usually eat during the week. It took me a long time […]

It might be easier to pop a pill than to cook a vegetarian meal at home if you’re looking to lower your cholesterol, but is it worse in the long run? The cost of healthcare in America is staggering; most doctors prescribe pills without giving much thought to the alternative: fruits and vegetables and healthy dietary changes. At this rate, which is more sustainable? Our money’s on fruits and vegetables. Thanks to NewHope360 for this insightful infographic.

Coffee Blast

I love waking up to a cup of coffee in the morning! There’s something comforting and peaceful about the experience – not to mention, I’m fond of the energy boost the caffeine provides, as well! About twice a week, I enjoy skipping off to one of those gourmet coffee shops and having the barista whip me up a nice, ice blended mocha. There’s something so indulgent about drinking a decadent coffee topped with a big shot of whipped cream. Then […]

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 […]
