I've cleaned up my diet and lifestyle a great deal since a stroke in 2006; Having just acquired a NutriBullet as a gift, I plan to give it a thorough trial and see what it can do for me!

As a newbie, a couple of questions:

Is there a way to search these forums? Search ability would make the collective experience of members accwssible, but I don't see such an option.

Starting to Shop with the NutriBullet in mind is going too involve some trial and error. For instance, at Amazon I see one brand of Goji berries that has mostly positie reviews, but a large number of reviews indicating poor quality control, moldy batches and dried-outt batches, There's another brand with none of these issues, at about twice the price!

I can't find any source of acai berries -- just powders and extracts.

Is there a Forum thread or threads compiling users' experience with onlne shopping for Bullet blasts? It would be great if we could share fleeting bargains and quality reports on these things!

 

Thanks in advance.

Unfortunately there is not a feature to search the forum, however we are continuously making improvements to the site so hopefully it will come in the future! I understand your frustration with trying to find quality ingredients. One brand I find with good superfood products is Navitas Naturals. You can find them at Whole Foods or online. We also sell a few superfoods in our store! Navitas sells acai powder, and you can also find acai puree at the health food store. Here's a link: http://sambazon.com/product/pure-unsweetened-acai/ I'm not aware of a thread talking specifically about online food shopping, but looks like we've got one started now :)
I buy the acai berrys at whole foods. in the bins.
My profile pic isnt showing up in the forums wonder why any answers thanks :)
Hi just purchased Nutribullet Friday. Have enjoyed the blast. While looking for chia seeds I discovered there are black seeds and white seeds. Is either better for than the other as far a nutritional value ?

The difference between the two colors is negligible. Both contain essentially the same amount of omega-3, protein, fiber, and other nutrients. We often say that the darker a food, the higher they are in specific antioxidants (longevity foods), however I'm not sure if that is true or not of the dark chia seeds over the white. I personally use the black chia seeds.
