With more than 7.1 million people dying of heart disease each year and more than 2/3 of American over the age of 20 being obese, it is even more important that we instill healthy habits in our children while they are young.
With busy schedules and picky eaters however, it can get tough sometimes to make sure that kids, and moms and dads too, are getting all of the nutrition that they need from their meals each day. It can be easy to fall into a rut for breakfast or lunch but sometimes those ruts are not the healthiest or most balanced meals. And when we are short on time we tend to turn to unhealthy packaged food or fast food…but now a healthy meal can be both FAST and ready to go all with a quick push and a few seconds. The Nutri Bullet is your answer!
That’s where the NutriBullet comes in handy! With The NutriBullet, ingredients are broken up into their most easily digestible state allowing your body to absorb up to 95% of the vitamins and minerals –turning those healthy fruits and vegetables in to actual super foods!
Well, when we chew our foods we tend to not chew them enough so our bodies have to work harder to break down the food and actually get less nutrients out of them–and that is only if we are eating the right foods to begin with. With the NutriBullet, every the food is broken down and extracted and our bodies can just absorb the nutrients and minerals that it needs. Plus, it makes it easier to get your kids to eat their fruits and vegetables when they feel like they are getting a treat that looks like a milkshake or smoothie when in reality it is a super dose of vegetables and minerals. And with the ease of use, even a kid could use it (under adult supervision) and with the cups it makes it easy to take it with you on the go.
Their are a lot of great recipes in the Recipe book, including drinks, salad dressings,Hummus, Guacamole or you can always just make a combination using up what fruits and veggies you have on hand at home. The possibilities truly are endless! I like to use mine in the mornings to make breakfast smoothies for the kids. I just stock up on fruits at Mainesource over the weekend and then all week long we have fresh, healthy smoothies as part of our breakfast. It is a great way to start the day. They also are great to mix up protein powder shakes, just add the powder,your milk or water, fruit and mix and you are good to go!
