What’s so good about a NutriBullet?

What’s so good about a NutriBullet?

I’m not very good when it comes to fitting in your ‘5-a-day’. Since smoothies have become a popular way of cramming in all the good stuff at once, I thought I’d give them a try. 

My juicer sat in the back of the cupboard for 6 years, I dusted it off, used it every day for 4 weeks, then it died, KMT. 

Two days went by as I researched new machines, my skin broke out and energy levels dropped. Lo and behold, the Hubby surprised me with a NurtiBullet! Yay! Admittedly, it’s taken me a while to get used it. I’ve been juicing and downing creations that may not have tasted that great, but were easy to drink. The Bullet blends ingredients, so the pulp, and therefore fibre rich bits, remain. So it’s a bit harder to drink, however, I feel fuller for longer. BONUS!  

Seeing as though this is more of a lifestyle change/addition, rather than a diet, I thought I’d share some of my NutriBullet recipes. Here’s to healthy additions! *Cheers*

I’ve started my day with this great tasting smoothie. The ingredients are easy to find, cleared up my skin and kept me energised for the entire morning.

*To fit in the NutriBullet’s tall cup*
Ingredients:
3 Brazil nuts
1 Celery stalk
1 Tsp Coconut oil
1 Wheatgrass sachet
Ginger *roughly 1cm cube*
1 Green apple
1 Carrot
1 Peach

Ingredients benefits:

Brazil nuts- A good source of the mineral selenium, which we need to produce the active thyroid hormone. Selenium also supports immunity and helps wounds to heal.

Celery- Reduces inflammation, natural stress reliever, aids digestion, lowers blood pressure, reduces bad cholesterol and can combat cancer.

Coconut oil- 90% of coconut oil is composed of medium chain fatty acids (or Triglycerides), which are easily digested and sent right to the liver for energy production. By travelling directly to the liver your body will not store it as fat and therefore can help boost your metabolism. Coconut oil also helps increase immunity and fight infections.

Wheatgrass- Contains all minerals known to man, and vitamins A, B-complex, C, E, l and K. It is extremely rich in protein and is also a powerful detoxifier, especially of the liver and blood.
