Hello ~

I just received my Nutribullet Pro. I am a vegetarian and enjoy fresh, whole foods. Unfortunately, they are very hard to find in the supermarkets in my area. The best are a 2 hour drive (4 hours round trip). Since wealth is not one of my attributes, I limit that trip to twice a month. In the meantime, I pick the best of the worst from local supermarkets as our farmers markets are now closed for the winter. I'm 57, grandmother of three, jewelry designer/maker, avid video gamer (yep, grandma got game). Salty is my sin! Love my salty, vinegars, pickles, lemons with salt, yum, yum!  I don't eat out, no fast food for this old gal in decades! Not even a Subway! No serious health issues and I want to stay as healthy as possible for as long as possible, especially since health care is now out of most of America's price range.  I am looking forward to this experience to tame my salt addiction and cravings for the stuff and to just experience food and nutrition the way it was meant to be. 

Glad to be aboard!

Leesa welcome to the forum. Sounds like you have been living a healthy and youthful lifestyle for years. Congratulations. You can kick the salt. Try using celery for a while in blast because it naturally has a little more sodium in it. It will help you ween your self off of salt. At first things are going to be very bland. try using other spices to make up for the lack of salt. Cumin, coriander, cinnamon, rosemary, basil and curcumin are just a few to play with. After a few days your other taste buds will wake up so you can begin to experience all the wonderful flavors mother nature has to offer. Healthy wishes Wally Bishop C.N.C.
Hello Wally ~ Can all ofHello Wally ~ Can all of those spices/seasonings be used together? I have a lovely blood pressure reading every physical and when the doctor asks if I use salt i just say yes. Celery is a favorite, raw or cooked. I am assuming that most of us are using spices from our local grocers and not from some other source that provides exquisite spices? Thanks again, Leesa
