Blast your way to Health with NutriBullet - stuff we love

It’s that time of the year, when we all have good intentions to get in our best shape. We get into a detox mode, we start some new healthy eating habits and we adventure into new workout routines.

Those new resolutions are never easy to keep up with but with a little help from my new find love, I might be able to get some nutritious breakfast on the go to get us started, detox for day and get the kids to enjoy some healthy “smoothies”.



When my good friend introduce me to the idea of high nutrition through fresh fruits and vegetables using a NutriBullet, I needed to know more… Now I confess I am obsess with my NutriBullet. Every morning, I am creating drinks also known as Nutriblasts. Instead of juicing, where you loose most of the nutrients retains in the fibres, this technology uses 600 / 900 watt motor with cyclonic action and the patented extractor blades. This technology breaks down and pulverizes the stems, seeds, and skins where most of the essential nutrition lies – unlike what juicers and blenders do.

Another big benefit of the Nutribullet over Juicers is that it’s a lot easier to use, prepare, clean and store. Its compact with no assembly require. Just fill the cup with ingredients, screw the milling blade cover on and push down into the base to get it working. Its so easy, convenient and affordable.

I am no nutritionist or health advisor, you will find plenty of recipes and many tips online on how to use the Nutribullet to your best advantage. But here’s how I incorporate this “extraction machine” into our family routine.

When?
Breakfast on the go. Every day I create a “ powerful nutriblast” to kick start the day.
Snack time or weekend breakfast for the kids
Also like to experimenting with recipe like gazpacho, dips and nutritious ice coffee

Details and retails
There’s the original 600 watts Nutribullet machine with a 24 oz cup.
The Nutribullet PRO 900 watts with a 32 oz cup.
The Nutribullet RX 1700 watts with a 45 oz cup.
The main difference between these three versions are the power of the motors (watts). A higher wattage of motor will have more power. I am so happy with my 600 watts but would be interest in the Nutribullet RX 1700 watts for its heating capacity.

The NutriBullet comes with a recipe book and some great suggestions but its also good fun to play with different ingredients and come up with your flavour combination. Have fun and get the kids involved. Blast your way to health.

Retail price is about AED 390 for the 600 Watt motor.
