Hi my name is Faith, I am a fast food junkie. This is my first nutri bullet. I have heard that all the nutrients are in the peeling of the fruit or vegetable. So how do you know what to peel or what not to peel? Do you peel the pineapple? What about strawberry tops? Banannas, avacado. oranges,lemons, lime? Are any bad for you? would there be any  benifit?

I read your chart regarding what items need peeled etc.....and I was surprised to see that lemons, limes, oranges all say to peel. I blast mine rinds and all! I was told that there is a lot of goodness in the rinds and it actually adds a lot of flavor and fiber! Is that ok? Please advise!

That is perfectly fine to keep the rinds on...we say to remove them b/c most people find them to make the NutriBlast too bitter. Be sure if you do keep them on that you are buying organic and that you wash them well!
I'd like to interject a query, if you don't mind; why do they need to be organic in order to safely eat the washed rinds?

There are less chemicals used in the process of growing organic foods and the rinds tend to hold chemicals, even after they are washed.
Thanks this chart is a big help. I'm a newbie too and was confused about what to peel and seed. I was going to use the papaya seeds but then I tasted them and they were a little bitter.
Just wondering, who certifies a product to be truly organic!?
