Breakfast and my new Nutribullet
After my last post, I decided to buy a Nutribullet. The photo above was my breakfast this morning (before I pulverized it!). It was baby spinach, raspberries, strawberries, pineapple and dried goji berries. So far I've made four or five drinks in the Nutribullet and I like it a lot. The trick is to make sure you don't overfill it, and also that the lid is on tightly before you start pulverizing. It's true, you don't taste the greens!
I've also been adding chia seeds to my smoothies, which I found out are insanely good for you (and don't seem to add any flavor!). So far, my favorite drink was one I made with a banana, peanut butter I had just ground fresh at the grocery store, oats, chia seeds and coconut milk. YUM! The Nutribullet comes with a milling blade, so I ground the raw oats and seeds before I threw them into the mix. Let me tell you, I'll be having that particular drink for breakfast a lot. It was so good!
If you want to get the best deal on a Nutribullet, I suggest you get one at Bed Bath and Beyond and use a 20% off coupon like I did. It came to $79.99 plus tax, which is even better than Target, where it currently sells for $99.00.
I'm really looking forward to increasing my nutrient intake. Even after just a few smoothies, I can feel a difference. If any of you have any favorite smoothie/juicing recipes, please post them!
