The Truth is on Your Plate

One of the things that derailed my weight loss efforts early on was what I chose to eat when I was not drinking my NutriBlasts. Someone recommended that I keep a food journal to document what I ate, but I was too stubborn to do it. I was starting to eat healthier, but I was still in denial about some of food on my plate. Although I love drinking my NutriBlasts, my body had to deal with constant flux. I was [...]

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 [...]

Buy the NutriBullet

almond joy

As I get older, the thought of summer causes some anxiety. It seems like it is becoming more difficult to prepare for the increased skin exposure during this time of year. I have become quite the expert on camouflage over the years, but there is only so much a person can do to cover up parts and be comfortable at the same time. Fortunately, since I have found my way to the NutriBullet there are ways to use this as [...]

strawberries

Strawberries are so wonderful and easy to use in a variety of recipes that they’re actually one of my favorite fruits.  Luckily for me, I can usually find strawberries everywhere near my home. Strawberry farms, roadside stands, farmers markets, F&W co-ops, fairs and festivals, as well as the regular grocery stores. Strawberries are everywhere! I have decided to purchase my strawberry preserves, jams, and jellies locally whenever I can. They are delicious without all of the processed additives. There is [...]

NB w-frut veg 021

Lately, I’ve been drawn to the idea of walking and running outside. Well, dragged to the idea is probably more accurate. Some of my friends have fallen in love with running; they’ve even completed a few 5K runs. As for me, there isn’t much of a love affair when it comes to exercise. I just hate it a lot less than I used to. I have become open to the idea of exercising outside, however; especially on a nice day. [...]

Very-Cherry-Smoothie-005a

I wasn’t a morning person for many years; getting up at the crack of dawn has always been a chore. I wouldn’t get cranky like most, though, but quiet and reflective. Not until about 10 a.m. did I start taking part in conversations around me. I didn’t understand why the morning news crew was so bubbly and energetic at five thirty in the morning, while I dragged myself out of the bed. These days, I’m up and at ‘em, raring [...]

Superfood Energy Blast

It’s the middle of the workday and I’m dragging. What is it about the midpoint of the afternoon and that makes me feel like I’ve just run out of gas? Honestly, I think I’m about to lapse into a coma from staring at my computer screen. I still have a 3:00 work meeting, I have to shuttle kids to events and then go home and whip up dinner. Sadly, that doesn’t include dishes, homework and lunches for the next day. [...]
