I have never seen this much rain!!

I was just looking for something to eat in the morning.....was eating eggs, toast & an orange to try to regulate my sugar as I have diabetes.  It was boring!  My son told me I should try chia seeds.....I said what do I do with them?  He said put them in smoothies or on you salad at lunch.  I started to research but did not do much about it at first.  A friend of mine told me that she makes smoothies to help her health & brought me a taste....it looked awful but tasted pretty good.  Now this lady has had 3 different rounds of chem & was no longer to be living 3 years ago....she is doing great!  I started looking for a blender....asked my son and he sent me several to look at.....my friend had the NutriBullet though and loved it.  I walked into a Bed, Bath & Beyond one day and there in the main isle in front of me was a display of them...............now through work I had won a $100 gift card for that store, so guess where that went?  I love this machine & this way of life.......I tell everyone and of course they think I am crazy.  I feel so much better I can not explain it to them!!

I go to the doctor every 4 months and he always says OK you gained a pound what are you going to do about it?  This time I was ready for him!  He didn't say anything for a long time which upset me a bit.....but then he shook his head and said OK you lost 9 pounds what did you do?  I explained that that was only in 2 months not the 4 since he had seen me and told him I discovered a NutriBullet....he looked strange & said what is that?  I knew he would so took my book and showed him!  He said well since you feel good and have lost I can't say anything bad but we will check your blood first....of course he would!  GREAT!  I also wanted to know.  Well my A1C had gone from 5.9 down to 5.5 and my total cholesterol went from 201 down to 160!  All were better by lots except my good, which I am trying to get back in line now.  I didn't get to talk to him yet but can't wait!

I am 62 years old, work 2 jobs.....last year worked 3! and the people I work with want to know how I do it as well as why are you so cheerful so early in the morning!!  Young kids just don't get it!! 

I really do not miss "real food" as I used to think of it!  It is now mostly natural food for me....oh don't get me wrong I still go out with friends to eat on weekends sometimes....but I always miss my smoothie if it is for breakfast that I go out!  I am looking for some friends who understand how I feel.....the ones who don't do this do not! 

OH & now I have lost 16 pounds!!  I love NutriBullet....thank you so much!

What a great introduction. Keep Blasting! Congrats on all of your health improvements. We're so glad you're happy with your NutriBullet and life in general :)
Welcome to the forum! We are happy to have you here!
Thanks!! I love this life style but have learned I need to be a bit more careful with my bullet! I am waiting for a new extractor blade and need it to get here soon! I feel so good I just want more! lol
thanks both of you!! I just wish there was a way I could make & take for before I go to my second job at 5....that would make it perfect! As it is I leave from my first job & drive right to the second one, so not time to come home and make another.

Any chance you have a fridge at your fist job you can store it in? If not, it may be worth it to invest in a tiny cooler to fill with ice :)
There is a frig at my first job, but didn't think it would taste quite as good if made at 6:30am & not drank till 5pm? Can you freeze or would it be way to watery when thawed?

The texture after freezing would depend on the ingredients used. However, if freezing it, then the nutrients would be retained a bit longer. I'd experiment with it. While we recommend drinking the Blast shortly after making it, sometimes life gets in the way and we have to make adjustments. You will still be getting more nutrition than from eating out at some quick convenience restaurant. We recommend drinking it w/in 12 hours, but if stored properly (tightly sealed in the fridge out of the light) then you could drink it up to 24 hours later. Give it a good shake before drinking. If you're super lucky...then you can take your base w/ you. Pack your cup the night before and store in the fridge. When hungry, then Blast and drink fresh :)
