I love this time of year! I enjoy getting together with friends and family, the BBQ’s, the beach and, oh, yes, the …..anxiety about getting into shorts and a bathing suit!
Well, that part I can do without! Thank goodness my NutriBullet keeps me on track so I can have a stress-free summer.
July happens to be one of my favorite months. Yes, I am patriotic! What better way to celebrate this important month than to make a NutriBlast that supports my enthusiasm, while providing me with protein and antioxidants to stay as healthy as possible - and yes, even now when the fireworks shows have died down!
This is the perfect time of year for blueberries and strawberries and we all know that these are healthy and delicious and provide us with a plethora of benefits. Blueberries are low glycemic, contain tons of fiber and vitamins K and C. Both are on the list of the healthiest fruits with the most nutritional benefits. For me, it is extremely important to consume these berries on a regular basis because I know about their cancer-reducing properties, so I am always trying to come up with different ways to use them in my drinks and meals.
Blueberries and strawberries are rich in a chemical compound called anthocyanins. These have been known to help reduce blood pressure and have other positive effects on the body. Why not combine these two antioxidant powerhouses with some protein in a super summer NutriBlast?
Now, I don’t usually just make fruit-only NutriBlasts, but this is a refreshing, delicious and healthy treat on occasion!
