Yesterday I traveled to Breezy Point, NY and personally witnessed thousands of people who have lost everything they own. In one day these people’s lives were drastically changed forever. Many no longer have a house, car, clothing or bed to sleep in. They don't have food-or even the ability to cook food. (You couldn't operate a NutriBullet if you wanted to!) A town that has been a part of my whole life is altered beyond comprehension. I have run on the walks, roads, and promenade of Breezy Point hundreds of times....and yesterday I could not even walk from one end to the other. Roads are impassible. What these people do have is their lives. I helped my sister pack up everything she could salvage into my suburban yesterday and thought to myself you can live anywhere and make a new home anywhere because lives were spared. That is a true blessing.

I often hear the following quote "Well at least you have your health!" How true this is in this situation. The need for food is great. I saw a couple eating lunch on their outdoor furniture in the sand in front of there collapsed home. They were taking some time to nourish themselves amidst all of the destruction. Life goes on...the sun still comes up...and we still need to eat! And in this case nutrition is perhaps the most important aspect of healing. Good nutrition is what is going to help all of these people recover and deal with the unimaginable stress and loss and displacement. Let's hope that through the generosity of others and the help of the Red Cross and other organizations that healthy food continues to be provided until we all can rebound and rebuild!

 

 

 

That's so devastating to hear and you paint such a vivid picture... I hope everything is restored soon so lives can begin to adjust.
Thanks Laura- Little by little progress is being made every day. New Yorkers are strong and very resilient!
Can Nutribullet make same receipts as the Magic Bullet
Some of them are better suited for Magic Bullet while others are best made in the NutriBullet. From our FAQ page, this is the difference between the two. 1. How are the NutriBullet and the Magic Bullet different? The NutriBullet has a larger capacity, over twice the power and a completely different blade design than the Magic Bullet. The NutriBullet is specifically designed to pulverize and emulsify foods including fruit skins, seeds, stems, vegetables, nuts and tough root vegetables (like ginger and beets), while retaining all of the fiber and nutrients. The Magic Bullet is a smaller, less powerful blending solution for making iced coffee drinks, fruit smoothies, sorbets or milk shakes as well as chopping onion or mincing garlic and other day-to-day kitchen uses. http://nutribulletblog.com/faq/
