It’s All About Rotation

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. I learned that proper food rotation allows me to use food with minimal waste while taking full advantage of my pantry, cabinet space, fridge and […]

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 […]

Buy the NutriBullet

Banana_0

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 […]

Sometimes, I like to set my produce on the kitchen counter and look at it for a minute before I make my NutriBlast, especially when everything is beautiful and at its peak of freshness! Honestly, I’m amazed I’m still into this. Years ago, I was one of the folks who frowned at the idea of blending fruits and vegetables together into a drink. I tried juicing and I didn’t like it. I just assumed NutriBlasting was the same until I […]

Got Milk

Almond milk is a creamy, nutty beverage that’s been consumed all over the world for hundreds of years. It has become a popular alternative to cow’s milk, especially for those who are lactose intolerant, have high cholesterol or just don’t like the taste of milk. So if you need a boost in your daily diet, try almond milk! To start with, for the non-milk lovers, one of the biggest benefits is that almond milk doesn’t taste like milk. It has […]

Blasting for your PoochAs the owner of a pet who has chronic digestive issues, I spend a lot of time and money (an average of $300 per month) at the vet. Since using the NutriBullet on a daily basis put my Ulcerative Colitis in remission, I wanted to explore the possibility of using it to improve my pet’s health, too. Of course, I am aware that there are many human foods that are toxic to animals, so knowing this, I […]

As long as I have been NutriBlasting, sometimes I run into trouble with my meals. The biggest issue for me has been letting my taste buds dictate my daily diet. I’m a foodie and sometimes I get caught up, craving rich and fattening food. Sometimes, the food is too heavy and I end up not feeling great after eating it. Although, it doesn’t happen often, it’s something that I am steadily working on overcoming. Thankfully, whenever I drink my NutriBlasts, […]
