Today is day 168 of getting 8+ glasses of water, tracking my nutrition and spinning the log-in wheel.
I've worked out more than 90 minutes per week for 26 weeks.
I've walked more than 10 miles per week for 23 weeks.
This morning, I used my new Nutri-Bullet (blender/food processor). I made a morning smoothie with kale, peaches, protein powder, a tablespoon of honey and a little bit of milk. It came out pretty tasty and kept me full from breakfast up to lunch. This came in handy as I accidentally left my other snacks at home so I was glad I didn't need a mid-morning snack.
The Nutri-Bullet is cool because it allows you to liquify the likes of kale while simultaneously blending the rest of the ingredients. You could probably blend peaches pretty well in a normal blender but kale is a lot tougher. To make a kale smoothie in my blender, I'd probably have to juice the kale and then add the juice to the other ingredients. In addition to adding labor to the process, I would miss out on the fiber the kale has to offer. With the Nutri-Bullet (or some similar high powered device), you get the nutrients and the fiber.
The blending chamber is essentially a big cup that you can detach and cover with a lid. Therefore, you can mix and go pretty quickly. Really ideal for a breakfast on the go. I love eggs but I've been a bit bored of having them everyday so I'm really glad I discovered the Nutri-bullet!
