I recently purchased a new toy, the NutriBullet, after watching late-night informercials on TV. It took me weeks to convince myself to buy it, but I finally gave in. And boy am I happy.
The whole concept around the NutriBullet is to introduce fruits and veggies into your diet by way of "extracting" as they call it through this machine. It's different than a juicer because a juicer discards the pulp, while this one extracts everything into a drink they call "Nutriblast," that is highly absorbable by our body.
While I do eat veggies, it is not always my first choice on the menu. This one allows me to eat fruits and veggies together everyday. This product also slowly introduces your body to a new way of eating by starting you off with mild flavored veggies in the beginning, and slowly work your way to the more potent tasting vegetables. For starters, they want you to mix 50% veggies, 50% fruit, add water, "blast" and that's it. If you want more information on this product, go to www.nutribullet.com.
Let me share with you a "Nutriblast" recipe I made today:
|Ingredients: Apples (with skin, no seeds), bananas, blueberries, strawberries, and a handful of spinach. All of the above ingredients are fresh.|
|Place the cup on the machine, turn onto the base, and watch the ingredients blend as they get "extracted."|
|A really delicious, healthful, and filling drink that I really enjoy. I believe you will too.|
|Chia seeds is one of the nutrition "boosts" that NutriBullet recommends. It is high in protein, Omega-3, and it supposedly expands to make you feel full, thus curbing your appetite. Have fun making your own recipes. -GG-|
