I am usually so focused on making NutriBlasts that fight fatigue, control my weight and keep me healthy, that I lose sight of their other incredible health benefits, like when my nerves are frazzled, or when my chemo related neuropathy acts up. It finally dawned on me after having two nerve racking weeks in which I could barely feel my feet due to the neuropathy, that I could use my NutriBullet to help calm me down and reduce these symptoms. I researched some good “anti-nervousness” ingredients and made my first calming NutriBlast. I'd love to share the recipe!
Of course there are certain foods that actually can exacerbate or trigger nervousness and stress, so staying away from these is important as well:
• High-glycemic carbs
• Coffee and alcohol
• Fried foods
So after a few deep breathes, I made the following NutriBlast and I am feeling the difference.
- Small handful of rinsed kale
- Handful of blueberries
- 1 tablespoon of Maca Powder
- Coconut Water
Not only did this taste good, but it did actually help me feel better almost immediately. Just when I thought that I had experienced all of the advantages the NutriBullet had to offer, it still manages to impress me.
