Let's Get Healthy

This is where I need to feel comfortable at
One week after I started my Healthy Life Challenge, I am beginning to feel the difference.  I am not in it to loose weight more than to feel healthy.  The Holiday feasting has finally taken a toll on me and while I enjoyed every second of that delicious food, it's time to cut back on it. I love food but I also like to improve my health with it and this year I am taking it a bit further.

Last year around this time I was about 8 months pregnant so I couldn't do much running or any other exercise for that matter.  This is my year to finally enjoy our beautiful home treadmill that's been winking at me all this past year begging me to get on it. How can I not feel motivated, it's got Facebook!

The Nutri Bullet
Now for the Nutrition part:
THE NUTRI BULLET.  With this name, it's bound to be good for me right? OH YES! I saw it in an Infomercial one day and had to tell Gary about and he immediately ordered it from Amazon: Nutri Bullet NBR-12 12-Piece Hi-Speed Blender/Mixer System He is kind of my partner in crime in getting healthy and working out this year so I knew he would totally want to try it. Plus he's a shop-aholic so convincing him was a piece of cake. Mmm cake... FOCUS!

Anyways, we couldn't wait to get it and when we did three days later, I became convinced the very first time I tried it.  We have the Magic Bullet and while it does a good job at making smoothies, there were always lumps and the blender was weak so we always wondered if there was something better out there.

I am not a big fan of yucky flavors so even when I filled it to 50% veggies and 50% fruits, they became liquefied and the flavors completely blended into one.  You can't tell you're drinking spinach or green beans! Seriously, this has become my new favorite appliance, the engine is so powerful.
Add all your fruits and veggies

BABY FOOD HEAVEN! The NutriBullet is not just good for everyone in my family but with a 9 month old, this became heaven sent. I blend her a cup of spinach, carrots, avocado, tomatoes, blueberries and she eats it right up! I used to have to steam the carrots so they would be soft enough to blend but not anymore.  This blender effortlessly pulverizes fruits, vegetables, superfoods and protein shakes into a delicious, smooth texture. 

Overall, I cannot say how happy I am and my family to have this.  I have two daughters, a baby and hubby and I and we can't get enough of it. The smoothies become addictive, they taste so good and the nutrition we are putting into our bodies are unlike anything else. Plus, I hear so many people say how great they feel and lose weight using it. I can't say it enough how much I recommend it for the taste and for the nutrition. You will love it too. 

I am happy to have a healthy start to this year and hope you're on your way as well. HAPPY EATING!
