We are glad you are here!  Feel free to post any questions or comments here about your NutriLiving experience...

Just wanted some advice on how to get my husband to drink his nutriblast he eats so unhealthy and his diet consists of processed foods sugar and energy drinks. He dose not favor fruits and veggies as much as I do. He really has a hard time eating them, how do I help him change this. He's willing but I have to fight him a little on it because he acts like such a baby when he drank his first one this mourning. He dose not have a healthy bowel movement it is never solid and he said to me this will only make it worse. Someone please help.
Stylebeauty, I have a similar problem in my house too and I have come to terms that you just can't change the way people eat unless they are ready to make the change themselves. However, YOU can choose healthy foods for yourself and hopefully he will see how great you look and feel and start to show interest in this for himself. With that being said I have a couple thoughts: - You mentioned he is acting like a baby...so I'd suggest some of the same things we recommend for our little ones. What are some of his favorite fruits and veggies? Say it is banana and that is all...but he likes chocolate! Make him a NutriBlast with some banana, raw cacao, a pitted date to sweeten, and some almond milk - but hold on...sneak in some spinach and he won't even notice. Then once he gets used to drinking smoothies, help him slowly expand the foods that are on his "safe" list - maybe next add some strawberries, or some avocado (make a nice thick shake-like consistency!). - Tell him that NutriBlasts will actually help him regain normal bowel movements. Fiber helps ease constipation, but also helps absorbs water and adds bulk to your stools. Focus on insoluble fiber. This type of fiber promotes the movement of material through your digestive system and increases stool bulk, so it can be of benefit to those who struggle with constipation or irregular stools. Wheat bran, nuts, beans and vegetables, such as cauliflower, green beans and potatoes, are good sources of insoluble fiber. Oats contain both soluble and insoluble fiber so that would also be a good addition to a NutriBlast. Be patient and expect a slow transition at first! You might be surprised one day when you hear him in the kitchen blasting away :)
just recently purchased the nutribullet, and reading the manual, not sure how long a phase is? and is there a certain guide to follow
The Phases refer to the Transformation Plan that is outlined in the Natural Healing Foods book. If you didn't order your unit through NutriBullet, you can purchase the added bonus book here: https://www.nutribullet.com/index.php?r=store/order&accessoriesId=147 This is a six week plan that is broken up into 3-2week Phases with recipes included. You can follow it as is or make adjustments that best suit your needs.
I just purchased my Nutri Bullet and am definately loving it so far. I was wondering if the recipes are for one serving or if it is more than one serving? It seems like a large amount and definately fills me up which is good when I want to use it as a meal.
Mozzabillie, the recipes are usually written for one large cup serving. However, if this is too much at once, feel free to cut the recipe in half and use the small cup. Or go ahead and make the whole recipe, drink half, and then put the airtight seal cap on the cup and store in the fridge for a tasty treat later that day!
Can you tell me what is a normal amount of nutriblasts to have in one day?
Janet, it's up to you! Some people usually have one or two. I suggest if you are replacing meals, use a large cup for each meal you are replacing. For a snack, use the small cup...or a large cup split in two for a snack in the morning and one in the afternoon. There are no rules with the NutriBullet :) Follow your intuitive eating. Looking to lose weight?...I suggest using a NutriBlast to replace a meal. Looking to bulk up?...add one to your meal plan as it is already. The sky is the limit :) If you have the Natural Healing Foods book, there is a 6-week Transformation Plan that is available to follow if you need more guidance. However, this isn't required to enjoy Blasting!
I am looking for the ingredients that might help me lower blood pressure?
I have been nutriblasting for about 4 months now but have a friend that, at my suggestion, got one for Christmas. She has had some health problems over the last couple of years and is somewhat rundown. She never did much in the way of fruits and veggies but has started nutriblasting every day, sometimes 2 times a day. Question is this: Is it normal to have green bowel movements? I never had that issue so I don't know what to tell her. Is she taking in too much spinach?
It could be...Green stools often indicate that food has passed through the intestines too fast (aka: decreased bowel transit time), before it could be changed from green to brown by the bile acids from the gallbladder. Green and red are often normal when consuming leafy greens and/or beets. Other causes of green stool could include digestive disorders. But this is only if it happens w/o eating several green foods - as noted below. Foods and supplements that can cause green stool include: Algae, grasses, and supplements that are rich in chlorophyll, such as wheatgrass, spirulina, barley grass, and chlorella and iron supplements. Have her cut back on the greens for a couple days and see if it clears up...then she can go back to making her Green NutriBlasts to see if it comes back or not. This will help her determine if there is a bigger concern or not. Here's a good resource: http://www.mayoclinic.com/health/stool-color/AN00772
My suggestion is to check out the "Recipes" tab...just type on "blood pressure" and you will see some options. Almost all fruits and veggies are cardio-protective. Focus on potassium-rich ingredients! Swiss chard, spinach, mushrooms, banana, tomato, asparagus, broccoli, kale, papaya, and many more :)
Today was my first day I used my machine, LOL! It was so good, but my banana and pineapple did not fully resolve. Did I not blast it long enough or did I use the wrong blade? What is the difference in the blades anyway? Also, I had to stop it and make my spinach go down to the blade because it was stuck in the top. I tried not to pack it in so tight, but you kind of have to with the fruit size. Help!
Hey Pinky! Could be a number of problems... are you packing in your fruits/veggies tightly and passed the MAX line? Be sure not to do that as the mixes need room to spin around and blend adequately. Are you adding enough liquid? The flat blade is the milling blade, and that's used to mill nuts and seeds into powders and flours, the cross blade is the extractor blade, used for Blasting. Feel free to lessen the portions too.. you don't have to follow a recipe to a T to reap the benefits. Fruit and veggie sizes differ so cut down on the portions if you find the cup is overflowing. Banana and pineapple should definitely not be a problem for the NB! Hope this helps! :)
Lauracueva! Thank you! Will keep it all in mind when I blast today! :o)
Hello – I have just startedHello – I have just started using my NB in Phase I and have several questions, hopefully you can help. 1. I have been using the provided recipes, but notice that I can’t get all of the ingredients in the tall cup under the Max line. Is this line just for water? 2. When I included Chia seeds they did not appear to be extracted. I was chewing on them, and other ingredients, in my final blend? I located the extraction guide and it said no prep for the Chia seeds was required. What am I doing wrong? How long should I blend for? 3. I have a Vitamix and I am still confused about how extraction is different than what is happening with the Vitamix. I was led to believe that the Nutribulliet breaks down the food better, but I am still chewing my drink; the same way I did with my Vitamix. I am following the instructions, so unclear what is the problem. Thanks in advance.
Kesha, here are some answers for you... 1) the Max line is for both for the solids and liquid. Use the recipes as a guide for portions. We notice some produce are larger or smaller than others so adjustments and additional cutting may be required. 2) The chia seeds do not need to be pre-prepped but if you want, you could use the milling blade to grind them into a powder form. If they have enough liquid, they should blend in nicely and then when left to sit for a bit, they soak up 9x their weight in water so your NutriBlast should thicken up and the seeds become soft. Try blending longer (not more than 60 seconds at a time) and make sure there is enough liquid so the seeds can make it to the blade. Also, are you using the right blade? - not the milling flat blade, but the sharper extraction blade. 3) Extraction is the term we used to describe the breaking down of the cellular walls so your body can absorb the most nutrients. Compared to regular blenders, the NutriBullet breaks down the foods into smaller particles. The VitaMix is similar in this mechanism, they just do not use the same terms. If you are noticing that it is not performing as intended, please contact Customer Service.
Hi I just got the NB and i was looking at the recipes and the list of food you an use. I am confused in some of the recipes it uses lemons, lime and grapefruit, but on the list it does not mention them. Also in phase one it does not list almonds but it does in the other phases is there a reason. Also a lot of recipes call for avocado and i am alergic to it is there a substitute for it.
I purchased my nutribullet a week ago and have been enjoying a blast every morning. They are quite tasty, I must admit. I am, however, concerned about the amount of sugar I'm ingesting by this increased consumption of fruit. I know it's not the same as processed sugar but shouldn't this still be a concern? I'm trying to reduce my belly size, not add to it. :)
I can't get organic for all the fruits and vegetables. Is there a really good wash I can get for the non-organic fruits and veg.? Thanks
Thank you.
I am not aware of one. Hopefully someone has found one that works good!
What are the type of recipes you are making?
Hi all. I have been using the NB for a week now and find it is great. But I have one problem and am wonder if any one else has the same trouble. I find with recipes that call for grapefruit that not all the pith gets extracted. Is any one else having the same thing happen?
Check out my blog post here for some ideas! http://nutribulletblog.com/pesticides-and-washing-produce/
If you have issues with your blood sugar, I'd suggest choosing more veggies - maybe a 75% veggie 25% fruit or 60-40 split. Also, choose lower glycemic index fruits. Here's a good blog that helps explain blood sugar balance a bit more: http://nutribulletblog.com/blasting-for-blood-sugar-control/ Also, keep in mind that the fiber and protein slow the release of these sugars into your blood stream so it won't affect you as much as if you were to consume the fruit juice itself.
Thanks, Krista! No blood sugar problems...just don't want to undo the work I put in at the gym. :-)
Have just been using the recipes in the book. Mostly the Toxin Blast.
hi, just purchased a NBhi, just purchased a NB recently. I love the blasts in the morning! I'm using them as a meal replacement for breakfast. One question ... I am adding cottage cheese for protein. So my blast consists of veggies, fruit, flax seeds and cottage cheese, is this substantial for a meal replacement?
Hi all...new here to nutribullet...posted a question in feedback regarding crohns disease...any thoughts or advice for using nb with crohns? thanks
How much of each are you using doria? For a meal replacement it depends on how many "meals" you have in a day, your total daily caloric needs, and then how many calories in each of your NutriBlasts and/or if this is enough to keep you full til the next meal. For a meal replacement it typically ranges around 400-500 calories per Blast.
Hey, I am new to theHey, I am new to the nutribullet - have been doing it for a little over a week now. So far - I love it, and I can already tell I am feeling better. I just have a few questions. I recently read an article about juicing and how you need to drink green juices immediately as once you rupture cell membranes - they are prone to grow harmful bacteria. Since the nutribullet also ruptures cell membranes - I was wondering if this was a concern here as well. When I started making some of the recipes in the book, they made quite a lot (I had to do it in 2 batches to get it all in). I froze the extra and then transferred it to the refrigerator the night before I was going to drink it. I'm assuming this is OK? Also - I know that the nutribullet cannot tolerate hot liquids, but I am wondering about cold soups and salad dressings. I have been making several recipes that require blending using the nutribullet. Are there concerns about bacteria here as well if the entire recipe isn't consumed in one day? Thanks for the info!
Jen, we recommend consuming it shortly after blasting since nutrients start to degrade the longer it sits and is exposed to heat/light/and air. If you are keeping it cold, sealed tight from the air and away from direct light, the antioxidants can do their job and prevent too much oxidation and bacteria will not form. However, just like all leftovers, they have a certain shelf-life and we recommend consuming your NutriBlast within a day if stored properly. Another option is to freeze it for a later date. As far as making other recipes, YES! Cold soups, dressings, etc. are all fine. Follow the "leftovers rule" - if not consumed within 48 hours, then toss it out. Freezing portions of soup or NutriBlast make a great option to extend the time it stays fresh/good - bacteria cannot form in such cold environments. Thaw in the fridge/not on the counter.
i need help on recipes for insomnia, i have a chronic insomnia and on prescription pills since 2008 , would anybody pls help me ...
Just replied to your other post tseriblosom! You are in the right place. Just search "insomnia" either from the home page for articles, recipes and healing foods or from the recipes tab if you just want a few recipes.
Here is an article they just posted! http://www.nutriliving.com/recipes/bedtime-blast
If I were you, I would talk to my doctor first.

HI, I am new and need to knowHI, I am new and need to know if the pear seeds can be blasted? I read in the preparation chart to remove core, seeds and stem; then leave on the skin. Which parts of the pear can be blasted? Also is any nut or seed good to use except those that make cyanide?
You are correct, the core, seeds and stem should be removed. Follow this guide: http://nutribulletblog.com/faq/peelingde-seeding/ Also, check out this blog about seeds: http://nutribulletblog.com/sipping-seeds-the-good-the-bad-and-the-ugly/
I am doing 2 cups of spinach, 1 cup of strawberries, 1/2 cup blueberries, 1/2 cup cottage cheese and fill with green tea. I'm only using it as a replacement for breakfasts. Thoughts?
I plugged in that recipe and here's the nutritional stats: 206 calories 2.7g fat 5g fiber 27.6g carbs 19g protein This looks like a good amount of protein, but not enough calories for a meal replacement if you are eating only 3 times in a day. Try to double the calories in it - maybe add some nuts, avocado, oats, etc. to boost the caloric count. Do you stay full long after eating this? If you are eating enough calories the rest of the day, then this is fine...I do not have enough information to know your caloric needs. You can determine this using calculators found online. It is probably in the range of 1300-1800 calories/day.
Help! I'm fairly new (and toHelp! I'm fairly new (and to fruits and veggies, not just the NutriBullet!). lol I need a chart or list of what to get "organic" and what can be "normal?" in terms of fruits and veggies. I've seen something somewhere but can't find it. I want to move to organic where necessary but use conventional where possible (budget). I LOVE my NutriBullet! I've eaten more carrots in 2 weeks than in the last 5 years. Not to mention the other things. I'm SOLD. Thanks! Michael
Chia can be soaked too, yes? Then might blend without "chewing"
Yes, you can soak chia seeds. They will soak up to 10x their weight in water which will form into a gelatinous consistency.
Congratulations on your decision to take charge of your health! Best of luck to you. This might be just the information you are looking for. See the links within the article to the "Dirty Dozen" (produce to buy Organic) and the "Clean Fifteen" (the ones you don't need to worry about). It also explains different ways to wash your produce for when you cannot find organic and also just to ensure you have the cleanest ingredients for your NutriBlast. http://www.nutriliving.com/blog/getting-pesticides-your-produce Happy Blasting :)
It's Feb 6, 2013 and I've just created my very first blast! it was delish!! I did Spinach, 3-4 strawberries, 1 Nectarine, ginger, about 1/4 cantaloupe, about 12 cashews and coconut water. I call it my Nectalope blast! I was AMAZED that it really DID liquify, and the nb really wasn't as loud as I thought it was going to be. My goal is to LOSE WEIGHT and LOWER my CHOLESTROL (yes, I have the Natural Healing Foods book). Don't know if I'm ready to jump into the 6 week program yet, but I feel I took a big step today with my very first blast. Here's my questions: Chia Seeds: I read that I can soak them...How long should they soak for before I use them in my nb? (also, if someone were to plant chia seeds, what would actually grow...would it be a type of "grass".. just curious). I'll be starting to walk on my treadmill 30 in the morning. what kind of blasts should I do before my workout? and then do I also then do a Breakfast blast as well?? How should they differ??
duh....I just saw a commercial that answers one of my questions.... "cha cha cha chia". As soon as I heard the little jingle, I realized that the chia seeds that are so packed with nutrients in the blasts are also the source for the "beloved" (or gag gift) Chia Pet.... I have another question: my tastebuds (at least for now) are craving a more "sweet" taste in the blasts. I've read that steevia is the prefered sweetener. What about Agave?? Any thoughts on that? Also another question: I've skimmed through a lot of the recipes. I don't see a lot of tomatoes being used (except for the soups). why is that?? My hubby is a V8 fan. I'd love to see a recipe for a "V8-like" Blast that I could make him. And here's yet another question: If I'm drinking a blast for (say for instance) high cholestrol. How many of those specific types of blasts should I drink a day? How many days should I be drinking it before I see ANY KIND of improvement? (6 months, 1 year, etc)? If I have several issues, High cholestrol, weight loss, diagestion issues, etc. how do I decided where to start? how many blasts for one ailment I should drink before moving on to the next ailment? what would the "routine" be??
OK, let's see if I can tackle all your questions... 1) Chia seeds will form a gel when they are soaked. You can either toss them into the cup along with the other ingredients, mill them first into a powder, then toss them in, or soak them and then put in the gel. They only take about 5-10 minute to form this gel. Try some chia pudding...chia seeds soaked in vanilla almond milk - so yummy! 2) Yes, they will sprout as you saw with the chia pet. 3) Walking on the treadmill for thirty minutes won't require any special NutriBlast since it is low intensity. You are free to choose whatever you'd like. Maybe make one and drink half before and half after. Bananas are usually a favorite for pre and post exercise. Mix that in with your other favorite ingredients. Now I'll move to your second post of questions...
4) Agave nectar is a highly concentrated form of fructose and most that are found on the market are highly processed as well. It also contains calories. I'd stick with Stevia or raw honey to help sweeten up your Blast. Cinnamon also is a nice touch to certain recipes. 5) Not many people like tomato-based drinks...however you are free to use them as you'd like. The ingredients in a V-8 are tomato, carrot, celery, beet, parsley, lettuce, watercress, and spinach. 6) NutriBlasts are not like prescription medications. The time it takes to see a difference varies for each individual. It depends on where you are starting healthwise, the other lifestyle habits you hold as well as the other foods you consume in addition to NutriBlasting. However, you can't go wrong by including more fruits/vegetables/nuts/seeds/legumes, etc. into your diet. These types of foods help with all of the ailments you listed. I'd suggest using this website as a resource. It contains many articles, recipes and healing foods related to these concerns of yours. There is no "routine" or magic number of NutriBlasts to drink in a day. Some people notice a difference in energy right off the bat, while others notice a gradual improvement in biomarkers after some time of continuos Blasting. What matters is that you have chosen a healthier path and if you stick with it, you will more than likely reap the benefits and see some improvements in your overall health. Enjoy!
I have a question about eggs and other dairy products. Can they be used for the protein segment of the transformation diet. I see only one reference to Greek Yogurt for a blast but not too much mention of eggs or dairy products. I am dairy-allergic but my husband really wants to know if he'll be able to eat cheese and stuff when we are done with the 6 weeks diet? (He is doing really well, by the way, and we have both dropped 5# our first week). What is your take (opinion) on milk, cheese, eggs? Thanks so much, we aren't hard-core carnivores but we do like to get some animal protein.
Congratulations on the weight loss! To answer your Q... The Transformation Plan is centered mainly around an alkaline, anti-inflammatory diet and eliminates dairy and eggs since they have been shown to produce inflammation and acidity in the body - these are two of the most common allergens. In addition, we are learning more about the downsides to including dairy in ones diet and feel that alternatives might be healthier choices. Cheese for example is extremely high in fat (the unhealthy kind) and for the calcium it provides, isn't really worth it (although some may argue it is just b/c they are addicted to it!) Cheese is also high in sodium. If choosing dairy, only choose organic as this eliminates any additional hormones and/or antibiotic byproducts. However, note that dairy in general contains natural hormones from the cows. Most dairy such as milk and yogurt contain high levels of sugar - either the natural lactose or added sweeteners (artificial or high fructose corn syrup) that may lead to weight gain, diabetes, cardiovascular conditions, among others... You will notice that the plan does include other forms of protein, both animal-based and plant-based. Through all my research in the nutritional field, I have come to a conclusion that including more plant-based foods into ones diet and shunning out the least healthy animal-based foods provides a balanced diet that may help prevent chronic conditions and lead to overall better health.
I will be 50 years old this year. In 2011, I had some injuries which left me out of the gym and with surgeries looming on the horizon, I began to eat junk food and stopped exercising. I gained about 30 lbs. I bought the Nutribullet after my sister swore by it. I started back to working out well actually P90X on February 4th, 2013. I have been able to modify to keep my injuries from hampering me in my pursuit of reaching perfect health and fitness. I do use the Nutribullet a couple of times a week with whey protein powder, berries, almond milk, chia seeds, and hemp. I eat whole foods, my diet is very clean. After the first couple of weeks I went from 226 lbs to 219 lbs, but now I keep seeing the scale go from 222 to 219 each week. I can't figure it out. I eat 1900 calories of clean whole foods yet I cannot drop weight. I exercise 6 days a week and sweat like crazy. So I turned back to my Nutribullet for help. Any tips on dropping bodyfat and weight loss would be greatly appreciated. I am 5' 9" and as of this morning, back to 222 lbs a day. I know I am not eating enough vegetables. I keep fruit to a banana and berries. Please help!!
Hello...I've had my NB for a couple of weeks now and I love it. Finally got around to registering on this site so it will take me a while to look around and process all the info. Love getting healthy and learning about how foods can help get our bodies. I've been one of these people that can't stand the taste of kale. I know it's good for you and all the benefits of eating it..but couldn't handle the taste. I think I've tried every way of preparing it...until the NB!! I was on the edge on purchasing the NB only because I didn't know if I would like the drinks. Can I tell you how much I love it? I've basically been making my own recipes with the fruits/veggies in the house and I can get kale in!! Excited to try new recipes..especially targeting specific items- like arthritis. I've also noticed that my body is not craving the "bad" things I used to crave. Every day is a bit of a struggle since I am an emotional eater and I've always taken the easy way out. No more...I am making a conscious decision what I put in my body. Last but not least...a special shout out to everyone running the LA Marathon next month. Because of my arthritic knees...I will be walking it. It will take me a while but trying to PR over last year.
P90X is pretty tough! Way to go :) While I do not have enough information to give you an exact answer and with weight loss being different for each individual, I can only provide you some tips or thoughts... 1) 1900 is a small amount of calories for someone who is doing such intense exercise. It could possibly be that you are not getting enough calories (yes this may seem counterintuitive, but you don't want to overtax your body without providing it what it need to perform and burn energy). Try to add a few healthy foods (some plant-based protein would work well!) to your daily intake to boost it up to around 2100-2200 calories a day. If you do not notice a difference, you can drop back down. I have heard of some people gaining weight when using protein powder continuously. You do not need this after every workout - try choosing higher protein whole foods (nuts, nut butters, seeds, chia seeds, etc are good options to put in your NutriBlast). 2) In addition, you are correct, choose more veggies and when not working out stick to the low glycemic index fruits to help keep your blood sugar stable. The banana is good for a post exercise ingredient and something that can help fuel you before your workout. Here's a good article that will give you an idea of the GI for a few http://www.nutriliving.com/blog/what-are-some-low-glycemic-low-sugar-nutriblast-recipes http://nutribulletblog.com/blasting-for-blood-sugar-control/ 3) Reduce stress 4) Don't get discouraged. Check out the Weight Loss forum - there are tons of great ideas from the community and some great recommendations from Wally who himself lost a significant amount of weight! http://www.nutriliving.com/forums/obesity-and-weight-loss Best of Luck! -Krista
We just got our machine about a month ago and love it however we leave it on the counter as we use it in the morning and then have a smootie in the afternoon or evening, my concern is it always looks messy with all the attachments lying around.....I would suggest that you make the cups all slightly different sizes to allow us to stack neatly one inside the other when not in use. I think this would allow people to leave it on the counter and actually use it more often....If you like my suggestion you can reward me with another machine so I can give it to my kids....Thanks for a great way to eat my veggies, love it!!!!!

lola, Wally and I just provided some information about this over on this forum post...check it out :) http://www.nutriliving.com/forums/topics/calories
If all the cups were a slightly different size, so they could stack one inside the other, how would they independently fit on the nutribullet ? I live in a 5th wheel FULLTIME..the Nutribullet has a seni-permanent spot on the counter and I can still find space to neatly store the extra attachments. I generally have 2 1/2 smoothies a day...EVERYDAY !
Question, I just received ny NB. I want to make drinks @ home and take it to work. How long can you keep the drinks in the fridge before drinking it. Some ppl say you should consume it as soon as you make it..others say up to 4hrs.
Tiggerlove1, Thats a greatTiggerlove1, Thats a great question that you may get a variety of answers on. However this is my opinion and I would love to see how Krista feels about this as well. Hopefully she will post as well. Once foods are blasted in the Nutribullet of course nutrients are released and also enzymes. Just like when you chew foods. The enzymes begin the digestive process. After sitting for a while the Nutriblast (smoothie) will take on a different texture and taste due to the enzyme actions. Also, once air hits the blasted foods oxidation begins and a lot of the antioxidants get used up. We would really prefer to absorp those antioxidants as soon as possible because the oxidation will still occure in our bodies after eating or drinking any foods. This is a part of natural metabolic activity. And antioxidants are reallyy important for our health. The only way to stop the antioxidants from being used is to be able to blast the foods in a vaccum or somehow suck all of the air of the Nutriblast. Most Vitamin and mineral content will not be affected much after sitting so it will still be healthy for you just not as healthy as if drinken soon after. In short it is best to drink as soon as possible after blasting. Healthy wishes, Wally Bishop C.N.C.
The new guy! When I do as theThe new guy! When I do as the directions say on the amount of things to put into the large cup, they always fill over the MAX mark. No way I can put the greens, 1 apple, 1 pear, 1 banana,and so on, without it going over the mark. I fill the water up to the line. So it's a bit confusing.
You only need one blast per day to get all of the important nutrients. Your other meals for the rest of the day are foods that you normally eat. Also, there's a lot of protein powders out there that you can add to your blast. Beans are a great source of protein. Make sure they are cooked before you blast them. As far as milk goes, add some soy, almond or coconut milk to your blast. They are delicious and don't have any allergens in them. I hope this helped you!
Thanks so much for the reply. I look forward to see what other ppl say about my question also.

I agree with Wally on this one - he answered it beautifully! We address this in our FAQs on our blog! Here is what it states... "We recommend making your NutriBlast right before you plan on consuming it. Heat, light, and air degrade nutrients and enzymes so the longer they are exposed, the less nutritious your NutriBlast might be. If you must make them in advance, don’t prepare more than one day’s worth in advance. Some options: You can prep your ingredients in the cup, top it with the stay-fresh lid (not the blade assembly). Then when you are ready to drink it, simply twist on the Extractor Blade and blast it right before you’d like to enjoy. Or you could blast and freeze them for future use (NutriBlasts keep for about a week depending on ingredients). When storing, keep in the refrigerator in a dark container and filled as close to the top as possible to minimize exposure to these elements. When freezing your NutriBlast, do not store it in the NutriBullet cup. Your NutriBlast should be transferred from the cup to an to appropriate freezer-safe container prior to freezing." So, in summary, it is fine to wait a bit after Blasting if you keep it stored properly. I recommend not going over 12 hours of storage for freshness, taste and the most nutritional punch :)

No way I can put the greens, 1 apple, 1 pear, 1 banana,and so on, without it going over the mark. I fill the water up to the line. So it's a bit confusing.
Keith - I completely understand how it can be confusing and we get this Q all the time. I am amazed at the size of some of the fruits and veggies out in the market these days - one apple to one person could be the size of two for another person. I would suggest using the recipes as a guide for proportions. Feel free to make moderations. Another idea is to do a bit more chopping to allow the food to fit better in the cup.
I looking to do 60 days with nothing but nutriblast. What fruit and vegetables can I combine to get all my daily vitamins and nutrients?

ZX6Rida...I suggest you work with a nutrition professional and a Dr. for this. While it is possible to get almost all necessary nutrients with pure NutriBlasts, this takes some planning and a few supplements. They can help you determine your calorie, protein, carb, fat, vitamin, and mineral needs and help you choose foods and recipes that meet those needs. Other less intense options could be to NutriBlast 2x a day and eat one whole foods meal or do a shorter All NutriBlast cleanse :) We are planning to do a 3 day All NutriBlast cleanse the beginning of April (stay tuned for details!) if you'd like to join us. It will be posted in the Cleanse forum.
ok thanks
Hi there. I've had asthma and serious allergies since I was a baby. (I sometimes joke that I was the original peanut allergy poster child. It was rare in the 1960s) What are the best substitutes for almonds, walnuts and honey? I am looking for immune system boosters, asthma tonics and energy boosters. I'm currently struggling to recover from bronchitis without meds and am doing well with the help of my new nutribullet but it's slow going. I've read thru the recipe section and have found some great ideas but need to make some substitutions. Any suggestions? Thx!

I'm glad you are finding relief with the NutriBullet! The almonds, walnuts and honey are easy to find subs for...here are my suggestions: Almonds - sunflower seeds and leafy greens are great for the vitamin E, avocado for the healthy fats, and any other seed for some extra protein Walnuts - chia seeds, hemp seeds, cooked beans and legumes Honey - figs, dates, lucuma or yacon (look at www.essentiallivingfoods.com for more info on these two), stevia I hope that helps. Please check with your Dr. to make sure these are acceptable while taking your medications.
Good Morning, I am Kim H and am new to this forum, have been using the NB for several months now and i am interested in losing weight only about 10 pounds is all i want to lose. what are some great ways and recipes
Ok, I have tried a few of these recipes and looked at a lot of them. My question is how do you get all those ingredients in the tall cup? I have been having to cut the recipes in half to make everything fit. Do I continue cutting the recipes in half or make two servings using all the ingredients to get the best benefit? Thanks!
Thank you very much for your answer. I usally make it just before leaving to work and drink it within 2hrs and I have a blender bottle which is a bottle with a wire wisk to shake it up in before drinking it and its a dark bottle so I guess thats a good thing.

Hi all. My Nutribullet arrived today and I can't wait to start using it when I get home! I want to start using it to bring more things into my diet such as superfoods, fibre etc. I came across the movie Hungry For Change just over 6 months ago in September and decided to just TRY bringing some of the suggestions for healthy living into my diet so I started with smoothies in a cheap blender then moved over to juices which I've had ever since with a vegan dinner in the evenings. My journey brough me to looking at David Wolfe's work (saw him in the movie and loved his enthusiasm and energy) and over time started to see more references to the Nutribullet, making me think its worth getting. So, 6 1/2 months into my lifestyle change and I'm 80lbs lighter with only 16-18lbs to go, reversed my type 2 diabetes,, hypertension and brought my cholesterol down nice and low. I'm not looking at the NB for weight loss, I'm doing that anyway but I AM looking at it to carry on with my very healthy lifestyle, being able to get the superfoods into my meals (don't see the NBs as a meal replacement, I see them, and my juices, as meals themselves) such as cacao nibs, goji berries, grund flaxseed etc. I think the addiction of the fibre into my meals as opposed to just juice will help me maintain my weight and health and make it something I will sustain for the rest of my life. So here I am, well into my health journey, well down the road to slimville (never been slim in my entire 41 years until now) and at the beginning of my NB journey. SO excited! Daz :-)
Dazd, A BIG Congratulations!! WOW that's the kind of testimonies I love to read! You decided to take charge of your health and look what happened. Your mind set and attitude about the NutriBullet is right on in your case. You have a system that is working for weight loss. The NB is going to bring about better overall health and restoration to your body. I am here to assist you in any way possible. I look forward to hear from you often. Healthy Wishes Wally Bishop C.N.C.
Got my NutriBullet a few days ago and have only had 2 Green Drinks....I think my body is upset with me for eating healthier, lol. I'm 130pds overweight and have not been eating well, atleast one fast food meal a day kind of not eating well and not exercising more then once a week...but anways, I made up my first drink with spinach, red grapes, strawberry, banana and water and had it after dinner one night. I actually FELT good and I think I had a good night of sleep. The next day (last night) I made one with spinach, pineapple, strawberry, banana and water. The rest of the night, my tummy was...well....bubbly. I was uncomfortable most of the night and (OK TMI HERE LOL) have had 3 bowel movements since. OK, did I mention I had leftover spaghetti and meatball before last nights drink? Granted, I understand that could be the reason but I guess I just wanted to ask in general, if someone like me who has never really consistently eaten healthy deals with the body adjusting to healthier fuel. ~Sara

Hello Sara! Since this is a change to what you are used to eating, your body will show signs of adjusting. The sudden increase in fiber could be the reasoning behind your increase in bowel movements. It is important to slowly work your way into a new dietary pattern. I'd suggest starting smaller with a short cup NutriBlast and working up once you feel your body is accepting it. It is also important when you ramp up your fiber intake to continue to drink plenty of fluids or you may end up w/ the opposite problem (constipation). On a similar note, here's an article that talks about foods that cause bloating: http://www.nutriliving.com/blog/feeling-bloated Hang in there and keep Blasting!
Hi My name is Debbie and, I just joined NutriLiving.com a couple of days ago. Didn't know it existed until I saw and advertisement in the sidelines while on FB..So glad I did!!! My post isn't so much a question but, a suggestion: I would love it if NutriBullet would make a cup a few ounces larger than the tall cup. Even 3 or 4 oz. more would be perfect. I have to do two batches every morning to make everything fit that are in "some" of the recipes. I know this was addressed in earlier posts but, I do chop up my ingredients well and try to use smaller fruit and still...have problems fitting all the items in. Maybe, you could sell as an extra item we could buy either online or at Bed, Bath & Beyond.. Otherwise....I LOVE the NutriBullet!!! I've had it for several months...I am always trying new recipes I see online for variety. I love some of the recipes you have here too. Just bought the Cacao, Maca, and Goji berries yesterday at a local health food store and added it this morning. What a "Yummy experience!!!! I can see I am really going to enjoy this site. I love the features I have read so far. Regards, Debbie
Hi. I am new as well. Just opened my NutriBullet up a few mins ago. I can't wait to get started and see what this is going to do for my health. I need to lose about 150 lbs to be at a healthy weight for my height.

Hi, I got my bullet a week and a half ago. This morning at the supermarket I saw the dreaded scale in the front and said oh why not, I need a baseline right? To my shock I have lost 9 pounds! O wow, I thought I was addicted to this appliance before? I'm going to keep blasting, only 50 more pounds to go! Did I mention, I feel amazing?!

That's even better than getting to the checkout counter and realizing what you are buying is on sale :) Congratulations! Happy Blasting....
Hi Guys Newbie here from theHi Guys Newbie here from the UK. I'm very impressed with my NutriBullet and can already feel the difference in four days, which is brilliant. My only concern is my NutriBullet itself. I returned one as faulty to one supplier and ordered the one I have now from another supplier, but I'm thinking they are from the same shipment. Although, it does work I am very worried that it is not perfect. As you look at the pictures of the NutriBullet, the wording is central on the silver base and on the motor unit itself. However, when looking at my unit the silver base is offset to the left, so the MagicBullet wording is at the beginning of the NutriBullet wording on the motor, which does look strange. I suppose I'm worried if anything goes wrong with the unit it doesn't look right and may affect the warranty. Really nice to be part of the community.
I just got my nutrablast....So far I'm enjoying.... Ilooking for weight loss recipes, especially for breakfast.

I would love to drink two NBs per day, instead of one. Is it a bad idea to make a NB in the morning to put in the fridge at work until lunch, or is it important to drink it right away to avoid losing nutrients?
I am 10 days new to 'blasting; brand new to this site. I posted a lengthy happy-happy thing elsewhere here. SO thrilled with my results! I will say that while experimenting to come up with a veggie/fruit/herb combo to mask the yucky after-taste I get from papayas, I learned an important lesson: too much of a good thing is just plain too much! I put in EIGHT peppermint leaves and the end result was like drinking toothpaste. I choked it down, but never again! Two leaves are perfect! What finally worked on the combo to kill the papaya after-taste: 1 handful raw collards from my garden, 1/3 cup papaya, 1/2 apple, 1/2 orange, 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon, a squirt of fresh lemon juice, 2 fresh peppermint leaves from my herb garden, and 1/2 teaspoon each of flax and chia seeds. YUMMY!

I've overdone it with the peppermint too! This recipe sounds delicious and even better when you use ingredients fresh from your garden. Thank you for sharing!

Hi, I have been on my Nutribullet for just 3 days so far. My question is, I am feeling really tired today, so am I doing something wrong? I have been doing just one shake a day, and trying to follow the 6-week program pretty close.

If this is a big change from the way you were eating before, this could be your body adjusting. It could also be that you are not consuming enough energy (calories). If this is the case, try adding in a small snack or a bit more to your dinner plate. Make sure you are getting enough sleep and aren't overly stressed as well. We have some recipes to help boost energy on this site. Maybe some of those will help. Let us know on Monday if you feel better after resting this weekend and making a few of these changes. Oh and sometimes it helps to go for a short walk to get your blood circulating. This always works for me :)
GrandmaDibb, In addition to Krista's great info and reply you could also be detoxing. The introduction of massive amounts of new nutrients (from blasting fruits and veggies) can start the body cleaning out stored up toxic waste, heavy metals and other toxic materials your body has absorbed. The detoxing effect can make you tired, have a low grade fever and be a little achy. Drink plenty of water with lemon and ginger, walk or exercise gently to speed up the detoxing process. Also a sauna helps speed up the process. As your body cleans out this build up you will begin to feel incredibly better with a lot more energy! Keep it up! Healthy Wishes, Wally Bishop C.N.C.

Hi! My question is: What are my alternatives for using water in my blasts? The first one I tried did not taste good at all; as a matter of fact there was no taste and it was watery... Help!
Hi Drcls, I use part springHi Drcls, I use part spring water and coconut water or green tea and coconut water as a base. If I want to make a smoothie that is more dessert like I will sometimes use almond milk. I hope this helps Healthy Wishes Wally Bishop C.N.C.

I also made my first blast with water and did not like it. I make my own green tea now and keep it in the fridge and use that for the liquid in my blast. Sometimes I also use almond or coconut milk. The secret is to make it COLD!!! Even if you decide to use water, keep it in the fridge and use it cold.
Hi can someone post the recipie from the user guide on the pasta fugoli. I lost my user guide. I am so vex. Gotta order another one. I would appreciate it.
Many recepies call for green tea as your liquid. May I suggest white tea. You prepare it the same way as green tea and it has even more antioxidants. the taste is also mucy milder than green teas. I drink four cups of tea a day black tea in the am, green or white teas in the pm. Caffeine does not bother me.

I am a new user. I have been on a diet that is mainly low carb and I have restricted sugary fruits. When I look at the Carb count in many of the recipes I am concerned. can you suggest mixes taht are relatively low carb or at least complex carb. Can I sweeten with something else other than fruit? I am after fibre, protein and living enzymes. I son't want to put weight back on.

All plant-based foods contain carbohydrates so it is a bit difficult to make a NutriBlast that is low in percentage of calories from carbohydrates. If you think about it, even the higher protein foods like beans, quinoa, nuts, and seeds all contain carbs as well. Vegetables contain fewer simple sugar carbs so making a Blast with mostly vegetables, nuts, seeds, and some protein powder could be a way to get the lowest amount of carbs. Don't be afraid of fruit - a little bit shouldn't derail your weight loss efforts. The fiber, protein and fat helps blunt the rapid influx of sugar in the blood stream. Do a search for "sugar" on the home page of this site and you'll find more details about fruit and weight. Some options you may want to include are oats, cooked quinoa, nut butters like peanut/almond/cashew, seeds like chia and hemp, and plant-based protein powders. This article introduces you to a few good ones on the market these days! http://www.nutriliving.com/blog/which-protein-powder-best-you

Great question. When you start to get heavy on the fruits, the blasts do tend to be high in carbohydrates. I always try and make the majority of my blast vegetables and add in low glycemic index fruits like blueberries, blackberries, strawberries, cherries, raspberries, apples, pears, grapefruits and peaches. Sometimes if I want an extra little treat I will use half of a small banana to give the blast a creamy and sweeter texture. Stevia is a great alternative to sweeten blasts and using different herbs can help enhance the flavor without the added carbs. You would be surprised at how far a little mint or basil can go when boosting the flavor of your blast. To up the enzyme content you can add papaya and pineapple, but these are higher glycemic / carbohydrate fruits but will provide a sweet flavor. To increase protein you can add goji berries, hemp seeds, chia seeds, spirulina, spinach, brazil nuts, figs and wheat grass. I made a blast yesterday that had 8 mint leaves, 20 string beans, 1/8 of a lime (skin removed), 1.5 cups of swiss chard and 1.5 cups of coconut water. It was delicious!
I've been on NB for 4 days now, already I feel better and energized!! I had 2 back surgeries and every since I'm not active as I use to be! I would like to loose weight and get greens in my diet.. I'm very excited to learn more and hopefully see some results soon! Just one question.. I'm on day 4. I'm on 3 small shakes a day.. I'm not hungry and feel full, but, am I suppose to be eating meals also??? I'm not hungry since I started.. Ty
Ldycolorful, Great question!Ldycolorful, Great question! Yes you also need need meals unless you are covering your calorie and macro-nutrient needs through the blast and I really doubt if you are. I could be wrong though! The fiber in real food is very filling and satisfying. Although when eating really healthy eating too many calories usually isn't a problem because healthy foods typically are low in calories and high in nutrition. The opposite thing happens when people suddenly switch to a very healthy diet of veggies, fruits nuts and seeds such as the blast. Calories get cut a lot. You can use this calorie calculator to give you an idea of how many calories you need per day. http://www.viveforlife.com/nutrition-2/bmi/ You should always get a least 1200 calories per day and 50 grams of protein. The only exception is for a planned fast or cleanse. When you under consume calories you are also under consuming essential macronutrients such as carbohydrates, fats and proteins. All three play important roles in your metabolism and health. Vegetables and fruits are low in calories and it takes a lot of them to equal 1200 calories. Try adding avocado, oats, raw cocao, rice bran, chia seeds, flax seeds, nut butters and coconut oil to put more calories in your Nutriblast. You would also need to add extra protein from either a vegetable source like hemp and brown rice or an organic free range whey. You might wish to use an online food journal for a while to make sure you are getting enough calories and the good balance of carbohydrates, fats and protein. There are several to choose from here are a few suggestions. http://www.myfitnesspal.com/ http://www.fatsecret.com/ http://www.livestrong.com/myplate/ I hope this helps Let us know how you are doing.

Hi there, try to be mindful of adding a little bit of everything that you like. For instance, if you like spinach & blueberries & watermelon, try to do 50% veggies, 50% fruit. Add nuts to make it more delicious -- walnuts & cashews make the drinks super creamy, almonds get choppier, but taste delicious. Goji berries are great for adding a subtle sweetness in a mostly veggie drink. Make sure to fill to the MAX line with your ingredients, then fill to the MAX line with your liquid. I use Coconut Water -- which gives it a delicate coconut tinge, or if you like dairy & enjoy a tart taste, try kefir. Be sure to add a little water when using dairy like kefir or yogurt. Maybe 60/40 or 70/30 depending on how much you like dairy. Many folks on here make their own almond milk. I haven't done that yet but I love packaged almond milk -- which I will no longer be using due to the fact that I can make it more healthy on my own. I believe others suggested using cold white or green tea as your liquid. If you're still concerned, try to make your drinks in the smaller cup so that you can try different variations without having to commit to anything in a large quantity. Good luck & I hope you start to enjoy your drinks!
Oh! I just saw a suggestion for quinoa. Does anyone have a recipe for a blast with quinoa? It's one of my favorite foods and I bet it would rock in a blast. Thanks! Peace. Laura
Hi Laura, All you need to doHi Laura, All you need to do is rinse the quinoa, soak it in pure cool water for about 8 hours and rinse it thoroughly. It will be crunchy and awesome! You could also sprout them which adds even greater nutritional value. You would need to rinse them well then soak them for about 48 hours or until you see the sprout just cracking open the seed, rinse again. Add to any blast. I hope this helps. Healthy Wishes, Wally Bishop C.N.C.

Can I use a food saver to vacuum seal fruits and vegetables that have been cut up to keep them from losing nutrients?
ZX6Rida wrote: Can I use a food saver to vacuum seal fruits and vegetables that have been cut up to keep them from losing nutrients?
That could help! Oxidation and nutrient loss occurs when the surface is exposed to air, heat and light so this takes care of one of the components. Vacuum seals would also be a great way to freeze fresh produce you may not be able to use before it goes bad.
Thank you
Aloha Everyone... I'm new to the scene and just purchased my NB and loving it. Glad to be apart of this great community.

I'd suggest peeling it. I also take the pith out of the lemons. It's a little too bitter for me, but I do love the flavor of the lemon in a veggie smoothie -- it adds a nice ZING!

Aither, great question. IAither, great question. I would buy organic produce when possible. Some of the richest iodine foods are sea foods like Kelp, Arame, Hiziki, Kombu, and Wakame. Other goods sources are strawberries, cranberries, lima beans, navy beans, spinach, summer squash, Swiss chard, turnip greens and sesame seeds.. Also shrimp and wild caught deep-water fish like cod are good sources as well as Himalayan salt and free range eggs, Iodine is present in dairy however The Office of Dietary Supplements notes that iodine present in dairy foods is partly due to iodine-fortified animal feed supplements and iodine-containing sanitizing agents used in the dairy industry. If you are consuming dairy (I don't recommend dairy, it's bad for us) make sure it is organic and from free range cattle. I hope this helps Healthy wishes, Wally Bishop C.N.C.
Thanks Wally! That gives me a lot of tasty choices. I do drink milk and eat yogurt but both are definitely organic. I've heard many sides of the dairy argument but I just love milk. I have been drinking organic milk for the last several years so that does help.
Aither, always glad to help. Keep us informed of your progress. Healthy wishes Wally Bishop C.N.C.
Just so glad to be starting this journey with you all! I am going to do this 2 days in feeling better Working it out!!!!!!

I like the screen name :) Welcome!
Hi, I just joined this week. Feeling better already. Quick question. When I read an article, at the end it says follow. When I click on that and follow the directions it says subscription successful. Where do I follow up with the article?
When you click follow, you are following the comment thread on that article. You will be messaged when new comments are made...
Thank you!
Newbie today. Just got my Nutri Bullet Sat. So far so good. Would like a recipe to make almond milk. I prefer raw goats milk but cannot always get it.
Becky this is a video showing how easy it is to make almond milk! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=THgouLGS_HU Healthy Wishes Wally Bishop C.N.C.
great
Thank you. Would be nice to use the left overs to make Krackers. since using the Nutri Bullet leaves none after using a Champion juicer for a few years. Becky likes to play with food.
I just got my nutribullet in the mail today. I was looking at the "quick start guide" and on the back of the guide it shows the 3 phases. How many days do I do each phase? And how many nutriblast drinks do I make each day?
is it ok to put the blade from the mill and blast blade in the dishwasher?

You will see the entire plan outlined in your User Guide and Recipe book as well as the Natural Healing Foods Book! Each phase is 2 weeks long for a total of 6 weeks, however you can go at your own pace and make any adjustments you see fit.

We recommend washing the blades by hand with warm soapy water and allowing to air dry or dry with a non-abrasive cloth. This prolongs the life of the blade.
thank you
Hi Everyone, I got andHi Everyone, I got and started using my NB about 3 weeks ago. I have been creating my own blasts, so far I have not been able to make mine as liquid as demonstrated on TV, does anyone else have the same problem? I noticed that when I follow the instructions it seems as though I am using more than 50% fruit to 50% veg. Today, I had a blast without the added banana, it tasted ok, but I will add bananas in the future. Thanks in advance for your feedback Jacinta
Thank you:)

There are certain ingredients that lend to a thicker NutriBlast. Bananas, avocado, nuts, almond milk, chia and flax seeds, nut butters, and starchy vegetables are just a few. If you'd like a thinner NutriBlast, I'd suggest using fewer ingredients and more liquid along with higher water-containing foods like watermelon, cucumber, honeydew, kiwi, tomato, etc. When I started Blasting I had to have a banana in each of my Blasts, but over time I realized that I didn't need it and could get sweetness from other things like cinnamon, coconut water, or strawberries!
Will the blasts have the same potency if you make them the night before since I leave at 4am and don't want to wake my kids up?
Hi, I just joined the worldHi, I just joined the world of "juicing/smoothies" within the last 30 days. What reeled me in was the book PH Miracle. Last year I competed in body building and this year my focus is nutrition (hence purchasing the PH Miracle). My way of eating while competing compared to what is suggested in the PH Miracle are VERY Different and now even more so when I read all the recipes for Nutribullet. My biggest concern is fruit. I noticed the biggest change in my body when I reduced my sugar intake to less than 50 grams a day. I am wondering how eating fruit will affect this (even in small amounts) Also, I am interested in feedback on Stevia. I use it, and have been told it is all natural and NOT an artificial sweetner. But like everything, there are many many different versions and brands. Most have dextrose, Rice Maltodextrin and other additives. Aren't those sugars/artificial sweeteners? Thanks for any feedback and I look forward to learning a lot!

If you make them the night before and refrigerate them they should maintain most of their nutrients. The Blast may separate a little over night so I would give it a good shake before you drink it. Another option is to premix your ingredients, keep them in your cup and Blast when you get to work. Just another option!

Great question and congrats on the changes you have made! Fruit does have a high sugar content and it is important to consider this when using fruits in your blast. It would be beneficial to monitor your fruit intake and understand how much sugar you are consuming. Some common fruits used in Blasts are half a banana (6g sugar), 1/2 cup blueberries (7g sugar), 4 strawberries (2g sugar), half an apple (9g sugar), 1/2 cup mango (11g sugar). And as you know, sugar can upset PH balance. If you are using moderate amounts and eating a balanced diet fruit can be a healthy addition. Stevia is a great product when you can get the all natural version. Using liquid stevia is a fantastic alternative to any other sweeteners on the market now. Make sure you read through the ingredients and avoid products with useless additives. I really like this product: http://www.swansonvitamins.com/wisdom-natural-sweetleaf-coconut-liquid-stevia-2-fl-oz-liquid?SourceCode=INTL405&CAWELAID=530002460000003561&catargetid=530002460000000567&cadevice=c&cagpspn=pla&gclid=CJW8ifr2orgCFWhp7AodeWgA5g You can also check out this article on natural sweetener alternatives: http://www.nutriliving.com/blog/sugar-alternatives-which-sweeteners-should-you-use
Just had my first nutriblast and think I can do this. But I am a type 2 diabetic and looking at the recipes, they all seem to contain 3-4 fruits. That sounds like a sugar blast that just can't be good for me. How do I get protein in there to balance out the fruit sugars?

Try building your blast with half vegetables, 1/4 low glycemic fruits like berries, grapefruit, figs, cherries, pears, apples, apricots, and using an unsweetened almond milk, coconut water or regular water for your liquid base. Also check your blood sugar 1-2 hours after you Blast, you may be surprised to find your blood sugar was not as high as you would think. I would love to know your blood sugar levels after Blasting if you start recording them!
Thank you Sarah!
I just started blasting 2-1/2 weeks ago and I love it. I was wondering why the ingredients, fruits and vegetables, start to separate if you do not drink it quickly?

What I have noticed after 10 days - Increased energy, stress level is reduced, cravings for sweets, snacks and alcohol are almost gone. Also my skin is much smoother, especially at elbows, knees and bottom of feet. I make a different blast every day to get a variety of fuits and vegetables. Awesome prodcut, easy to use and clean up!!
Yvette Bennett wrote: I just started blasting 2-1/2 weeks ago and I love it. I was wondering why the ingredients, fruits and vegetables, start to separate if you do not drink it quickly?
This is just a natural occurrence that will happen due to the interaction of the water and fibers in the produce. Since there no binders or fillers that help homogenize the Blast, then a separation will occur. This also happens when a fat is added - fat is hydrophobic so it does not like to touch water, hence a separation of the two. This does not mean there is anything wrong with your NutriBlast. Simply give it a shake or pop it back on the base for a quick Blast to mix it up again!
Hello, I started juicing a month 1/2 ago. However my Nutribullet is a recent purchase :-) I have a couple questions, please help! 1. Does anyone know if juicing fruits and veggies for a long period of time is NOT a good thing to do? 2. Too replace breakfast and lunch with juicing, is that compared to a liquid diet? Because I hear liquid diets are very unhealthy. - Thanks

Thank you for your questions. 1. It is always good to rotate the items you are using in your NutriBullet because even too much of a good thing can not always be so healthy. Use Spinach one week, kale the next and mixed greens the following. Mix up your fruits with what is seasonal or what is on sale. Having a broad variety of fruits and vegetables gives your body exposure to a variety of nutrients. 2. The NutriBullet keeps the whole fruit and vegetable in tact so it is not as severe and calorie restricted as a liquid diet. You can get adequate nutrition from having a Blast at breakfast and lunch, you just have to make sure you are using a variety of fruits, vegetables and booster. Ginger, turmeric, hemps seeds, flax seeds, chia seeds, vegan protein powder, avocado, spirulina, chlorealla, cinnamon, almonds, brazil nuts, gogi berries are all great additions to use in your Blast. Monitor your weight, if you began to lose weight rapidly you may be at risk for nutritional deficiencies.
Hello, I'm new to theHello, I'm new to the website.. Just ordered a Nutribullet and it should be delivered on Wednesday. I've been juicing for a while, but I heard so many good things about the Nutribullet that I decided to order it.. I can't wait to use it!

Hi! I'm one month new and am enjoying my NutriBlast in the morning. One thing, though, I'm finding that having pineapple in my detox blast is causing a bit of discomfort to my tongue. I see that a lot of the blasts contain pineapple. While I love pineapple and understand it's use, can I replace it with other anti-inflammatory fruits?

Try replacing it with papaya which has anti-inflammatory properties and digestive enzymes similar to pineapple.

So, I'm digging into the material, looking at whether or not to begin the 6 Week Plan or focus on Hypertension, hmmm.
I just had my first Nutriblast yesterday evening, just trying it out after getting all my fruits and vegetable, I made my own up, it was good, Spinach, flax seed, almonds, banana, blueberry, apples and red grapes, made me kind of sleepy and I did have good sleep did not toss and turn as usual. My question is, if I choose to do the Energy Elixir nutriblast, do I change the benefit of it by adding other fruits or veggies, also is it possible to make 2 nutriblasts into one? Please advise.
If I take a small dose of a statin daily to maintain my cholesterol levels why is there a cautionary word about using Nutribullet with the Rx in your literature
Hi Jeannine - I thought the same thing - but I have found that I don't have to use a lot of fruit in one shake to make it taste good - and trust me that is saying a lot for me because I am veggie phobic big time. I use 1 large handful baby spinach, 1 large handful baby kale, 1 banana, 10 cashews (alternate almonds) and about 2 tbs of chia seeds. Put the chia seeds and nuts in the small cup and use the blade for dried stuff (can't remember the name of that blade right now) and then when pulverized, add it to the other ingredients, add water just below the max fill line and pulverize that. You really don't need all the fruits that the Nutribullet recipes have (no offense Nutribullet people!).
newtriman wrote: If I take a small dose of a statin daily to maintain my cholesterol levels why is there a cautionary word about using Nutribullet with the Rx in your literature
It is always best to check with your doctor about specific foods that can interact with the medications you are on. Typically grapefruit it what you want to avoid while on statins.

Also, when I do start the Morning Star, should I rotate this recipe with Fibromyalgia-Fighting Tonic and Fatigue-Fighting Macarita? Thanks

It is up to you Tammy! There is no set pattern to consume the recipes and the six week plan is just a suggestion for how to slowly introduce NutriBlasting into your life. The foods included in each recipe are ones that have been shown beneficial for certain ailments so mixing and matching would also be an option. It is good to rotate recipes so you are consuming a wider variety of nutrients.

Are you currently using the NutriBullet? What ingredients are you putting into them? Make sure to use at least 1/2 veggies and work up from there. Your taste buds over time will start to change. Use lower glycemic index fruits and some ingredients with protein and fat (maybe some nuts and seeds) so your blood sugar won't spike as much. Avoid using any added sweeteners such as honey, stevia (even though it's healthy it will keep your sweet tooth active), dates, etc. Once the sweet cravings subside, then you can add these back.

Hi Davilyn. You are in the right spot! You can get all of those ingredients online or at your local health food store, Trader Joes or Whole Foods. Some great foods to start with include warming foods to help circulation like ginger, turmeric, beets, cinnamon, and garlic. Other good options are citrus fruits due to their vitamin C, nuts and seeds due to their Vitamin E, and also dried goji berries! Dark leafy greens and berries are some of the highest antioxidant foods and will help decrease inflammation. Check out some of the recipes under the recipe tab and start gathering ideas for when you get your NutriBullet. Let me know if you have any additional questions.

You can do the cleanse before the 6 week transformation or you can go right into the 6 week transformation plan, it is up to you!
Greetings. I have purchased my Nutribullet but have not used it yet. I dont see much while reading about root veggies such as sweet potatoes, beets, ginger and carrots. These are very important to me. It seems like the veggies are mostly leafy greens and then fruit...Have you all used these root veggies and had any luck? Thanks
Civia, Congrats on yourCivia, Congrats on your purchase of the nutribullet. Though I haven't used my bullet for the last two weeks now, I stilla absolutely see the value. In answer to your question, yes root veggies are an awesome way to get some nutritional value using your bullet. I can tell you I have used beets in several drinks, and as far as I have read, beets help those individuals who may struggle with Hypertension, diabetes, and some other blood related illnesses. My husband who absolutely hates beets, loved the drink I made. Now I am extremely creative and have a very strong culinary gift, so I do not always follow the recipe book (wich is a great resource by the way). In short, carrots add sweetness, when you want to put less fruit, beets are great, I haven't tried ginger, but can see how that would be good, but maybe strong if too much is used, and sweet potatoes as well would be good. My suggestions: read up on the value and vitamins in each veggie get creative enjoy your drink.... remember your recipe so you can share.... Please keep in touch.

Apry172, Congrats onApry172, Congrats on blasting. I think when we discover the benefits of fruti, vegetables, nuts, and seeds we can create recipes as well. I look at many of the recipes as guides, as I would the other recipes used for cooking. Much of the blasting recipes are also based on purpose (is this simply as a way to control an illness, or disease, or a better eating lifestyle), and also taste. I love fruit and and veggies, but prefer a little sweetness to my drinks. I cannot add half the fruit that most recipes call for, as I am too close to being pre-diabetic. Since this illness runs on both sides of the family, I only use a cup of fruit in total, which is far less than 50%. Additionally, I use veggies that are a little more sweet like, sweet peppers, and carrots. I would suggest try narrowing down your focus, and purpose and then build your arsenal of recipes. If you need energy, try the enery elixir, but study which veggies, fruit, seeds, and nuts are used. Then try to use veggies, fruit, nuts, and seeds that are in the same family to expect the same result. If you want to rest, then consider which ingrediets go into the recipe for resting.... The point is...enjoy your nutribullet and happy blasting.

Are the ingredients in our recipes and blasts the right combination of foods? I have read that fruits should be eaten by itself in an empty stomach. I can imagine what a blast will taste without any fruit in it. Will the combination of foods in a blast be helpful in the digesting of foods? Please enlighten me on this matter.
I started with my Nutribullet 4 days ago. I suffer from Fibromyalgia. I have noticed that my swelling and inflammation has gone down considerably. I also have incorporated a vegetarian diet. I am so excited. I've lost a few pounds and some inches as well. Does anyone suffer from Fibromyalgia and if so, can you share with me your experience with doing the Nutribullet? Thanks!

It really depends on what you put in the Blast and how much fruits and veggies you use. I like to use my tall cup as a serving size and meal replacement and use the short cup as a snack. Serving sizes for fruits and veggies are as follows: 1 cup leafy greens = 1 serving, 1/2 cup raw fruits and = 1 serving, 1 small apple and orange = 1 serving. You can never get too many veggies!

Maca is a high altitude root vegetable that grows in Peru. It is considered an adaptogen and can play a role in hormone regulation. It also provides the body with an added boost of energy and a variety of nutrients. You can get it on our online store: http://www.nutriliving.com/store/product/organic-maca-powder-4-oz

I can imagine what a blast will taste without any fruit in it. Will the combination of foods in a blast be helpful in the digesting of foods? Please enlighten me on this matter.
Sometimes certain food-combing can be bad because of the competing enzymes and digestive energy that is spent on various food components (in whole form). When the NutriBullet pulverizes foods, it’s reverting food to it’s pre-digested state, reducing the load on the GI system and making them more easily absorbable. By consuming fruits, veggies and boosts in this manner, many find it less taxing on their digestion as compared to ingesting food in its whole food.

While there is no particular food or recipe that will help "turn your condition around", there are some foods that help to calm your nervous system and boost your mood. These foods, in addition to stress reducing techniques, may help with your symptoms. Some suggested foods to include in your NutriBlast are those higher in tryptophan (bananas, pumpkin seeds, almonds) which converts to serotonin which works to balance out feelings of stress and anxiety. Also foods containing tyrosine (spinach, spirulina) which is the precursor for dopamine, the feel-good chemical for the brain. Check out some of these: http://www.nutriliving.com/blog/my-nerve-calming-nutriblast http://www.nutriliving.com/blog/stress-less Magnesium-rich food help calm muscles and nerves: http://www.nutriliving.com/blog/super-mineral-your-body-needs Other foods kefir and kimchi (probiotics and GABA), tryptophan-rich foods to boost serotonin (pumpkin seeds, edamame, shrimp), Nori seaweed and cooked quinoa (magnesium and vitamin B6).

1 cup of spinach = 30mg of calcium, 1 cup of kale provides about 90mg, 1 cup of broccoli = 40mg of calcium, 1 cup of chard = 52mg of calcium, 1/2 cup edamame = 252mg. I am assuming you probably need around 1200mg of calcium per day so it looks like 1 cup of kale in your NutriBlast would give you about 1% of your daily needs. Sardines are a great source of calcium but I would not recommend Blasting with them =).

NutriBlasting will help with blood pressure but there are certain foods that can interact with blood pressure medications. The biggest offender is usually grapefruit, so as long as you don't Blast with that, I wouldn't worry. I would double check with your doctor about foods that interact with your meds.

Welcome to NL, great question. SInce you are already 3 years from your surgery, its about making healthy choices and getting nutrient dense foods due to your limited stomach capacity. I would start by using the short cup and aim to blast 2 times per day. Always build your Blast with half veggies, 1/4 low sugar fruits like apples, cherries, berries, pears, figs, grapefruit and apricots. Add 1 tbsp of seeds or nuts and use water, coconut water or unsweetened almond milk to the max line. Here are some additional great recipe ideas: http://www.nutriliving.com/recipes/lean-and-green http://www.nutriliving.com/recipes/flex-factor
Just started with my NutriBullet blasts yesterday and already love it. I have osteopenia so my doctor wants me to use calcium supplements. The downside with calcium supplements for me is that the supplements, in all forms (carbonate and citrate), make me really constipated. I took a quick look at the NutriBullet Natural Healing Foods book that has great sections on the digestive system and also the skeleton. My question is this -- Is it OK to have 2-3 Nutriblasts in one day? I'd like to drink them two to three times a day, targeting my various health issues.

Remember that NutriBlasts do have calories, so your other food intake will have to decrease in order to maintain your weight. I would suggest 1-2 per day with one being a meal replacement and the other one being a snack in the short cup. That way you can get adequate nutrients without changing your routine too drastically. Make sure you are drinking adequate fluids and walking frequently, this can help with constipation. Using foods like apples, chia seeds, prunes, aloe vera juice and raw oats can help with constipation.
I tried a smoothie yesterday with frozen spinach instead of fresh. The taste was the same but the consistency was like seaweed. Does something happen to the texture of the spinach when it is frozen? Of course, I’ve never had problems with fruit, so this is a new experience for me. Is it not advisable to use frozen veggies? I’ve only tried spinach, so right now I’m not sure if there is a change in consistency of other types of veggies. Also, does the nutritional value change in frozen fruits and veggies?
I have been consuming a nutriblast every morning for past 4 days. Seems that I'm even more lethargic and having horrible stomach cramps with a totally weird response from my bowels (I have horrible cramps in my stomach and feel way bloated). Basically my blasts were spinach, apple, raspberries/blueberries, pineapple and banana. Suggestions?
I just bought my NutriBullet. I have been juicing with a cold-press juice extractor - the GreenPower KP-E1304, which makes very thin juices out of all kinds of fresh vegetables and fruits. This juice is roughly 2/3 of the veggies and fruit fed into the machine. However, I believe my new NutriBullet is capable of doing things that my juicer cannot: letting me keep some healthy fiber and making smoothies.
That's a lot of fructose and soluble fiber and both in excess can cause bloating, gas and cramping. Additionally if you have not been eating a fiber rich diet switching to a higher fiber intake must be done gradually or you will have the same symptoms. Try 1/2 low sugar fruits (green apples, any berries, pears, plums and peaches) and 1/2 veggiez in your blast. Start with the smaller cup once a day for a few days and once the symptoms improved ha e two a day. The lethargy is most likely from to much sugar from those fruits or possibly some detoxing with if. I hope this helps. Keep us informed of your progress. Healthy wishes, Wally Bishop C.N.C

Freezing produce helps lock in the nutrients. Some packaged frozen leafy greens are blanched prior to freezing so the texture does change (if you've had sauteed spinach, you know how it gets a bit slimier). You can use frozen veggies - I personally have not tried them, but I've heard others have - it is all a taste and texture preference :)
Hello everyone! I just received my NB on Saturday and am really excited to start putting it to good use. I am really interested in breakfast type drinks to wean myself off coffee. I am addicted to the caffeine in coffee so any drink recipe would have to make me really energized! Thanks.

KTMCDO wrote: Hello I'm new I would like to know what are chia seeds And hemp seeds
Chia seeds come from a flowering plant in the mint family, native to central and southern Mexico and Guatemala. Chia is grown commercially for its seed, a food that is rich in omega-3 fatty acids and fiber. Hemp seeds can be eaten raw, ground into a meal, sprouted, made into hemp milk (akin to soy milk), prepared as tea, and used in baking. They come from the hemp plant and are a good source of omega 3 fatty acids, fiber and protein.

I ask because it tastes so horrid I feel maybe it was just supposed to be a little shaving or something. 2 - Many of the nutribullet photos have veggies that are not leafy greens (carrots, broccoli), but ZERO of the recipes included in the attached documentation have anything along those lines. Can this thing handle something as hard as a carrot?

Great Qs! Here is a chart to help with ingredient prep: http://nutribulletblog.com/faq/peelingde-seeding/ There are some good benefits from the rind, however, I'm like you and don't like that bitter taste - maybe a little zest will do ya :) Our recipes are just suggestions - feel free to adjust to your particular taste or just what you have on hand at the time. The standard is the 50% greens, 50% fruit and about 1/4 cup nuts/seeds/boosts, but many will use other veggies in place of greens or create more of a dessert-like Blast with mostly fruit and boosts. The NutriBullet blade CAN handle carrots, raw beets, nuts, seeds, etc.!

Czeer wrote: What's the best nutri blast for IBS? Something to slow down my bowels and bulk me up?
There are several different symptoms that are associated with IBS. It can present itself as gas, bloating, diarrhea or constipation and the recipe recommendations will change. If you are having diarrhea I would recommend trying this blast: 1 frozen banana, 1/4 cup of raw oats, 1 tablespoon of peanut butter, 1 cup of spinach, 1 tsp of flax seed, 1 pinch of cinnamon, coconut water to max line. If you are constipated I would recommend 1.5 cups of mix greens, 1 tablespoon of chia seeds, 1 drop of peppermint extract, 1/2 cup of blueberries, 1/2 cup of mango, coconut water to max line. If you experience gas and bloating with your Blasts I would use low fiber foods like canned fruits (in their own juices), cooked fruits, grapes, grapefruits, and steamed vegetables until you are able to comfortably tolerate the Blast without gas and bloating. Use unsweetened almond milk or water as your liquid base.

David Wolfe explains how to start here: http://www.nutriliving.com/blog/getting-started The recipes are up to you - choose foods you like and start experimenting or browse the recipes section of this website for ones that look tasty...we all like different combos! There is also a Six week transformational plan that came with your machine and provides some more detailed direction if you feel that is what you need. Most fruits and veggies are fine to use - there are some that I wouldn't recommend just due to palatability - raw eggplant and potatoes are not recommended. Here is a prep chart for almost any ingredient you can think to use: http://nutribulletblog.com/faq/peelingde-seeding/ And yes, fresh herbs and spices are fine to use and can make a normal blast taste amazing!!

Walnuts you can swap with hemp seeds, chia seed or flax seeds to get a good source of omega 3 fatty acids. Cucumber - these are very hydrating and contain a lot of water, using water in your blast can replace fluid in cucumbers. Melons and carrots - high in Vitamin A so you can use sweet potatoes in place.

Yup! I cut mine into chunks and throw them right in. Make sure you have enough liquid to process them and you may want to run your machine a couple seconds longer than normal to make sure you break down all the carrot pieces.

Hi everyone Newbie here also my question is if I make a blast in the morning to take for a lunch will it still have nutritional benifits? I'm looking to have one for breakfast and one for lunch then a healthy dinner
Starnes, great question. Blast are best when drank with in a few minutes of blasting. The longer it sits after blasting some nutritional value diminishes such as antioxidant value and some Vitamin C. Additionally, the enzymes that are released from the blasting beging digesting the foods. After about 15 minutes of sitting the texture and color will change. It will become sort of slimey. It is still good for you but some of its value and taste will be effected. The NB is small enough to take to work with you. This gives you the freshest blast possible! healthy wishes, Wally bishop C.N.C.

The max line is mainly for the liquid, however try not to fill the cup with ingredients too far past it to ensure no leaking and the best consistency!
I have had my Nutribullet 900 for about two weeks now. I had the rubber gasket come loose and break off after 4 days. I called customer service and they are sending me a new blade assembly.

I dried everything off and reset the gasket into the blade assembly, but I know that this is not supposed to happen.

Here are some great ideas in our cleanse plan: http://www.nutriliving.com/forums/topics/kickoff-cleanse-super-cleanse-plan
So I'm wondering if I bought the right thing... I was really looking for a Magic Bullet Blender type product... Can I use this like a blender?
I just activated mu NUTRiLiving.com account. Says 6 months free. What happens after the 6 month free period? Will there be a charge to continue and will I be notified?

Yup! The NutriBullet is like the Magic Bullet, just has a higher powered motor and larger blending vessels.

Here is a great recipe: http://www.nutriliving.com/recipes/crohns-crusher-blast Also combining iron rich foods like tofu, cooked beans, spinach, pumpkin seeds, sesame seeds, dried apricots and broccoli with foods that are rich in vitamin c like lemons, strawberries, oranges, papaya and brussels sprouts, can help your body absorb more iron from your foods.
Idk if this is a stupid question, but when they say soaked almond....soaked in what?
Thank you so much! I made almond milk and it's AWESOME!
I just had my first blast and it was fabulous! Can anyone tell me what the flat blade is for? There is nothing noted in the enclosed pamphlets. Also,should fruit with skin (apples, pears, etc.) be peeled? Thank you in advance for your patience. Jules

Just made my first Blast and it was tasty! I've been doing green smoothies in my blender and love that the NB totally pulverized the greens & really left no pieces of stuff. I'm a little disappointed that the large cup is so small, since I'm used to HUGE smoothies out of the blender (and can use " whole" servings--the entire orange, the entire banana, 1/2 c. Of grapes, etc.) but I think what I'll do is fill the large AND the small cups when I'm making them and then just combine the two in a larger glass/quart jar (?!)

Lady8500Bug You can do thatLady8500Bug You can do that but remember the fresher the better. I get my cup set up the night before and keep it in the fridge over night. Put everything in including the water and then in the morning all you have to do is blast it. I have mine in my bedroom because my sisters room shares a wall with the kitchen and I don't' want to wake her up in the morning at 6am.

Fresh Almond Milk to add to NutriBlasts Makes a one-cup serving Ingredients: • ¼ cup raw almonds, soaked overnight • 1 cup filtered water • ½ tsp vanilla (optional) • 1 date (pit removed) Directions: • Place soaked nuts, water, dates into the NutriBullet and blast until smooth – no more than 60 seconds at one time allowing the NutriBullet to rest in between. • Strain the liquid through cheesecloth or other fine mesh. • Add vanilla if desired and mix • Add to your NutriBlast or store in an airtight container in the fridge for no more than 2-3 days. You may want to make several batches of this recipe to have on hand for your blasts.

Hi, I have nto gotten my nutribullet yet it is in the mail -- I was looking at the 5 day cleanse? where do I find the recipe for this -- and also when I click on it do I have to click follow to get the recipe?
Hello everyone! and Moderator! I am new to nutri-blasting/Juicing... I started off with the "CelerAde" its a detox... My question is.. although I know that Diet and Exercise are important.. I would like to know about a blast that will help me BLAST off fat cells?? I am a "FOODIE" and love to eat.. I usually bake my foods and dont use much salt but I am guilty of using butter and whole milk.. lol basically im an average joe on a mission.... I know this is going to take some dicipline.. but are there any "Hunger Altering" recipies? or Stomach "fooling" that can be achieved?? thanks! <---sorry so long lol
I am frustrated, I got the Nutribullet, took the online shopping list yesterday and spent $50 (alreay had some of he stuff) I find directions are lacking for getting started then when I look for recipes on here I find I am missing an ingredient or two for every Blast I want to make??? It should be easier. Sher
That's a great question. Congratulations on joining the wellness journey! What is going to alter your hunger and taste is getting nutrient rich foods in your everyday diet and eliminating as much refined and processed foods. Refined and processed foods are too rich and simple sugars which cause cravings and bad fats that also cause cravings. Both severly damage our body. I would recommend you read my post about starting out with th NutriBullet. http://www.nutriliving.com/forums/topics/if-you-are-new-nutribullet-and-need-lose-weight For hunger satisfying blast use more veggies than fruits and stick with low sugar fruits. I also add nuts and seeds like almonds, chia seeds and pumpkin seeds for extra protein and fullness. I will sometimes add raw oats or quinoa these are also filling and satisfying. A diet rich in every color of plant food is going to highly nourish your body. You can add additional proteins if needed. The best would be organic lactose cold processed whey concentrate or a combination of hemp and brown rice or organic egg white. The best way to blast fat it to understand you must burn more calories than you eat and exercise will speed up your metabolism. Lef us know how you are doing. Healthy wishes Wally Bishop C.N.C.
I am seeking advice on Raw Agave. Is it a healthy sweetener? I have not seen it mentioned in the manual to enjoy or avoid. With respect to oils, coconut oil was not mentioned either. Please advise. New member Miguel Sampson
Miguel welcome to the forum and your new wellness journey. Agave nectar or agave syrup either raw or not is very high in fructose, much higher in fructose than even high fructose corn syrup. Fructose in high amounts is not good for the body. A much better choice is stevia. Even if it says raw it is still processed just at a lower temperature to not kill the natural enzymes. The bottom line is no it is not a healthy choice for a sweetener. Coconut oil is great for us. Make sure you get organic cold pressed coconut oil. Let us know how you are doing. Healthy wishes Wally Bishop C.N.C.

I buy large portions of organic spinach, kale and spring mix and divide into snack bags then place five snack bags in one quart freezer bag and freeze. Also freeze cut up fresh fruit and veggies. i use ice cube trays to freeze about to expire coconut milk, almond milk and/or fresh fruit juices. After juicing 100's of navel oranges, I saved the surplus pulp and froze in ice cubes trays toped with a splash of water. I mill flax, chia and hemp seeds and store in canning jars in refrigerator. BAM, you are ready in the morning. One final tip, freeze any left over blast in popsicle trays for a healthy evening snack.
Hello...I'm also new at this nutriliving..my question is...how is it recommended to get the drinks cold...there is no way I could drink them at room temperature. Any advice greatly appreciated.can you use ice ? Thank You, Michelle

Is it ok to store 1/2 of the container in the fridge to drink later that day? If anyone else is new or old and wise to the process please feel free to add me as a friend!
Also, is it ok to add crushed ice before blending?

Hello! I just started using the Nutribullet two weeks ago. Thank you for the information. Look forward to participating and learning something new. Very interesting!
Hi, I have started using my Nutribullet and find it really good but am confused about the measures in recipes.....when it states "half a cup" is this a half a cup of the small cup or the tall cup? Thanks.
Hi there Does that mean IHi there Does that mean I have bought old stock because I only got mine a couple of weeks ago and I have one of each blade or is it because I am in UK? I do have to say that I am loving my Nutribullet and having fun experimenting.
Hello everyone, I've beenHello everyone, I've been using my nutribullet for about 2 1/2 weeks and a I've been using the recipes in the small book and from the dieting recipes on this site, but a lot of them are not very tasteful, at least two were very hard to drink. Does anyone else have this problem?

If you are referring to the greens, then sometimes we'll say 50% greens meaning half of the tall or half of the small cup (whichever you're using). If it is 1/2 cup of another ingredient then that means 1/2 of an 8oz (one cup) measurement.

There are a couple reasons. You may need to run the unit a little longer, defrost frozen fruits before adding them into your Blast, add more liquid to your Blast, run the machine for 20-25 seconds and then pulse several times.
I would like to know when is the best time of the day to take a Nutriblast designed to help you sleep at night?
Hello Everyone, Please, canHello Everyone, Please, can someone offer some suggestions! I just purchased my nutribullet and started using it on 2/10/14. I am having an issue with the consistency of my drinks, they are grainy and too thick. I am assuming it's the fiber; therefore, I have to strain my juice three times in order to make it suitable for my palate. There is so much pulp/fiber left over that I feel like I'm missing out on my nutrients. This is becoming too time consuming to have to strain every drink, and I am getting discouraged. I was thinking about returning the product and getting a juicer. The way the product is portrayed on the infomercial it is able to be poured smoothly through a strainer without anything left over and it is able to be drunk like a glass of water.
I am guessing one of three things. You might be overfilling the solid ingredients. You might be using the milling blade that points down toward the motor, rather than the pulverizing blades that point both down and up. Use the pulverizing blades for at least 30 seconds to liquify everything. Are you remembering to add water or another liquid to the max line? Best of luck. Once you get the prep down, you won't look back!

This all depends on the ingredients you are using. Since the NutriBullet is not a juicer, it is designed to retain all the beneficial fiber. If you'd like a thinner consistency, I'd suggest using more water-dense veggies vs. fibrous ones. The most "thickening" ingredients are starchy veggies like beets and carrots, apples and pears, bananas (more creamy), avocado (creamy vs. grainy), oats/grains, chia seeds (thick and creamy vs. grainy), and protein powders. Choose foods like cucumber, melon, berries, citrus, etc. Here's a chart w/ water content of various fruits: http://www2.ca.uky.edu/enri/pubs/enri129.pdf
Thank you for responding so quickly. I use kale, spinach, rainbow chard, celery, carrots, pineapples, pears, apples, ginger, oranges, blueberries, and strawberries. Perhaps, could it be that I am using too much of something, and I fill the tall cup to the max line with water. I am having trouble with my knees & I want to focus on weight loss & energy. ~Thanks~

Don't be, the idea is to have fun! For example if you dont have cashews, add almonds or any other kind of seeds. If you dont have spinach add other greens, if you dont have enough coco water regular water would do it just fine. Have fun, the whole idea, on my humble opinion is to enjoy the beauty of natural food! This morning for ex I had: spinach + raspberries + oatmeal + sunflower seed + soy milk. I loved it! and it is not in the book! :)

Looks like you have a lot of those high fiber ingredients I mentioned. Swap out some of those with the higher water (PERCENTAGE) ingredients and make sure you are adding enough liquid to your mix.

It is up to you and your personal dietary needs. Some use it as a meal replacement when it includes ample calories and macronutrients (carbs/protein/fat) and some use a lighter recipe as a snack. For meal replacements be sure to include plenty of fiber and protein to keep you full and satisfied!

Hello All! I am new to Nutri-living. My son bought me the Nutri-bullet for my birthday in December. I am starting a detox and I rarely have time to blast in the morning, so I was wondering if it is ok to Blast the night before to take with me to work in the morning?
Skershaw, if you prepare the foods you want to blast the night before, you can make a blast the next morning in less than 2 minutes! While it is OK to blast the night before, you will lose some nutrients, a lot of the antioxidants and due to the enzymes breaking down the foods the texture may be a little slimy and it will not taste as good. I hope this helps. Healthy wishes wally Bishop C.N.C.

It is best to Blast as close to drinking as possible, this helps preserve nutrients. However, if you do need to Blast in advance, it is better to have your Blast than not have it all. I would recommend storing it in the fridge with an air tight lid. Oxygen, heat and light all can break down nutrients. You could also build your Blast the night before, don't add any liquid, store in the fridge and then in the morning, add your liquid and Blast! That is what I do when I am pressed for time.

The recipes got great reviews so even if you just wanted to use it for that: http://www.nutriliving.com/forums/topics/clean-2014-cleanse-and-shopping-list
I found that for my family is easier to make the drinks for dinner because that's the meal that I am less rushed. Also I find it helpful to make it and drink it while I am making dinner. Keep trying, don't give up. It will become a habit, just like making coffee or tea... Good luck!
I am new to the nutribullet. I am trying to add "meals" to my diet. I only eat one meal a day and that is dinner. I was told to start eating 3 to 4 meals a day. I suffer from chronic pain and am overweight. I am not sure how to begin.

I"m right with you, I just got my NB today, and I have to admit my first 2 attempts weren't that great, but I will stick with it! I have been studying all the info, and am impressed with the feedback! I just need to experiment a bit more I guess! Good luck to you and happy 'Blasting!

gary53d gave some great suggestions! Also, some people like to start with the 6 week transformation plan in your user guide and recipe book (also in the Natural Healing Foods Book). You could also jumpstart with a 5 day Cleanse (don't worry - you won't be starving!). That plan can be downloaded from here: http://www.nutriliving.com/forums/topics/clean-2014-cleanse-and-shopping-list Or just start slow and head to the recipes page, type in your favorite fruit or veggie and make a Blast recipe with it. You're itch to start experimenting will eventually flourish :)

We don't have a chart for skins, but we do have some info on seeds! http://www.nutriliving.com/blog/sipping-seeds-good-bad-and-ugly Banana and Oranges do have valuable nutrients in them...however most people can't get over the idea of using a banana peel (be sure it is organic and washed!). The orange usually overpowers the Blast and makes it too bitter. I'd suggest using some of the orange zest for a nice healthy refreshing zing to the recipe. Here's an extraction prep chart to help with your Blast prep. This is based on nutritional value and desirable taste/texture. http://www.nutriliving.com/infographics/extraction-prep-chart

What do you suggest to blend for a good nights sleep?
I like to soak my fruits and veggies before juicing if they are not organic , which is all the time because I find that the organic stalk is much too pricy for me. Someone suggested to soak in water and white vinegar . Does this work ? does someone know another natural way to soak without purchasing a chemical product ?
Try the Sleepy Time Smoothie recipe. You can find it in the sleep section of the recipe area. I have had success with this one and it tastes great!

Hello my name is Giselle and I purchased my Nutribullet last week. I have been doing a blast daily since last Thursday. I started with one a day. On Monday when I went back to work I made a breakfast receipe with oatmeal for my morning drink and then I made a nutriblast for the afternoon. I have not altered my diet in any other way. I work from home on Wed and Fri, today while working from home I only had my breakfast smoothie and at 10:00pm I had to make a nutriblast, my body was craving it! I am very pleased with that. Normally I would crave a cup of coffee before bed.
Hi, purchased Monday 4/28/14. On the 3rd day I decided to do NB for all my meals but don't know 1. how long I should do this, I'm a vegetarian so I don't miss the meat just fighting the hunger since I'm used to pasta, cheese, and everything that's a No No including coke. Now day 5 and dropped 6.4lbs so I don't want to quit. 2. Is there a tutorial to put a profile pic? 3. Any Forums you can suggest for weight loss & another on vegetarians. thankful even if just 1 question is answered.

Some possible options for you might be: other seeds like pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds, hemp seeds, chia seeds, and flax seeds. For fruits, try mango, peaches, berries, pineapple, and/or papaya. To replace corn, try another starchy veggie like sweet potato, squash, or peas. Gluten-free grains include quinoa, amaranth, brown rice, buckwheat, millet, and gluten-free oats.

ThomasJ wrote: Could you please advise on the use nuts? Should they be soaked in Almond Milk or Ground before using in the Bullet. Many Thanks.
It is best to buy raw, organic nuts and soak them over night. This helps remove certain enzyme inhibitors that can make them hard to digest. After soaking, they can be added right into your NutriBullet.

New to NB. Started Monday Memorial day 2014 and was amazed that it was so easy to use and actually tasted well. My son loves the NB and tries to make something at least twice a day. Today I was unable to make a nurtiblast and I am feeling the difference. I am tired & fatigued! When I do drink a nutriblast I have a burst of energy and my eyesight is clearer. I am experimenting with different combinations and have learned that bananas work well with spinach and flavoring. Apples and pineapples help with sweetness. I have to go to the market today to get more fruits and veggies, I don't want to feel like this tomorrow

I am a newbie this is my 3rd day using the Nutribullet. I made the Immune Booster Nutriblast yesterday in the tall cup. The contents came just below the top of the cup by about 1/2 inch. The water came to the MAX line. However, even after blasting it for a full minute the contents was still very thick? I then poured it into a couple of glasses and left one in the fridge for a few hours. When I then took it out later on, it had set and I needed a spoon to eat it instead of drink it? Does the MAX mark on the Nutribullet cups mean that this is the level for liquid only or for fruit/veg and liquid? Any advice would be useful. Many Thanks, Paul

After you play around with your Blast and figure out what you like best you can adjust all the recipes to better fit your needs and preferences. Many Thanks, Paul

The max line is for both, but mostly for the liquid. Try not to pack the ingredients in - if they go slightly over that should be ok, just be sure the liquid is no higher than the max line. Some ingredients thicken a Blast over time - things like oats, chia seeds, cooked sweet potato and avocado. To thin it out, pour out a bit, add in some more liquid and Blast again.

This should eventually go away. If you are new to consuming foods with more fiber, it takes time for you stomach to adjust. Start out a bit slower and continue to drink plenty of water. For more tips, check out this link: http://www.nutriliving.com/blog/feeling-bloated

I have been using Nutribullet for a couple of weeks. Juicing every morning with kale and fruits. I developed a nauseas stomach and have been dry heaving after I juice. I can no longer juice because of this issue. Why is this happening?
I have no idea why, maybe you should try other things besides Kale. what fruits were u using?
Hello All.... I was lookingHello All.... I was looking for a way to start taking my health a little more seriously so I invested in getting the NutriBullet after seeing the commercial a few times on TV. It came on Friday, I unpacked it today & I just made my first NutriBlast. I used baby spinach, baby carrots, grape tomatoes, raspberries & peaches. I was not sure about this combination, but went for it anyway. I must say the taste was pretty good (surprisingly). I'm already sitting here thinking of what I'm going to put into my next Blast. The machine is so easy to use & I'm extremely happy that I made this investment. All I have to do is stick to it!

It sounds like you may have a slight allergy to something you are eating. Have you tried using different ingredients? Maybe try spinach instead of kale and adding a little ginger into your Blast, this can help with nausea and upset stomach.
Good to know...thank you!
I had the same problem and I like it more like juice than really thick so what I did is I poured half of it into the other tall cup added more water and that helped a lot! It tasted good and was not to thick. I also can't drink a full tall so I just put the rest in the fridge for later!

Hi all, Newbie here. JustHi all, Newbie here. Just got my NB yesterday and looking forward to learning all I can.
Hi there, I just got mine a few days ago and am soooo enjoying it!!! I used to have a juicer and it was okay, but I was not happy with the amount of time it took to clean after every juice and also all of the pulp waste, so I used it sparingly. I just love blasting, so quick to do and tasty! mmmmmm I love the fact I can just drink or spoon it out of the glass it come with and so easy to clean up! but most of all I love that there is no waste!!! 3 stars !!! I'm going to try the 3 day blast on my days off coming up... looks like a great way to detox and start loosing this extra weight! Nice meeting you and good luck :)
Hello everyone I am new to blasting and I was wondering, the tall cup is too much to drink at one time, do you have to drink all that or can we use the single serving cup for one person?
Hey, I am new here. I am Katie, I am 22 and got my Nutribullet today. Hoping to lose some weight as well as becoming healthier :)
Hey there I've been using myHey there I've been using my bullet for almost two weeks now. I mainly bought it because for some silly reason as a child i stopped eating vegetables and have never been able to stomach them even as an adult. The last couple of days after having three blasts a day i've noticed i've been pretty tired and had no energy. i'm pretty sure it's because i've shocked my system after all these years of food abuse (no veg and a serial chocoholic). I'm not giving up as i'm 99% sure that's all it is and both me and my husband are enjoying it.
Hi I've noticed increased nail growth after about 7 days of nutri blasting. I prepared and froze chopped fruit and veggies for 7 Toxin Cleansing Blasts for the week. I've been making the blast in the morning and taking it to work in a glass bottle to have throughout the morning instead of breakfast. I've definitely noticed an increase in energy too apart from after eating home made tomato pasta salad at lunch one day I felt like someone had sucked the energy right out of me and I felt extremely sleepy and lethargic. Have to say that I haven't found an amazing tasting combination yet but it is definitely trial and error :O)

If the tall cup is too much, you can use the short cup to make your Blasts. Just adjust the ingredients in the recipes so they fit into your short cup.

This prep chart may help: http://www.nutriliving.com/infographics/extraction-prep-chart Kale stems are great to include, green leafy top on strawberries are great to include as well, apple skins are great but I would leave out seeds and stems.
Could be what they call healing crisis. I would say there is a chance 3 blasts a day could be too many. Back off to one a day for at least one (1) week. Then work your way up to 3 if that is your plan. Good luck with your choices and your health

For poor circulation and hypertension, vegetables high in natural nitrates such as beets, basil, Swiss chard, beet greens, and arugula have been shown helpful. Also, potassium-rich foods like baked sweet potato, lentils, Swiss chard, avocado, and banana may help. http://nutritionfacts.org/video/vegetables-rate-by-nitrate/ Also, swelling may be due to fluid retention.

OMGoodness! One word...divine.
Impressed with my bullet and glad to be here!! I have the HealthMaster which I LOVE, but the bullet allows me to make the same great drinks in a smaller size. I can even add my fruits and veggies at night and then add my liquid, ice and powder in the morning before running out the door. Major SCORE!!!

Here are some great recipes for inflammation: http://www.nutriliving.com/recipes/search/keyword/inflammation. Replacing one meal a day with a Blast may help decrease overall caloric intake and help with weight loss. Since everyone responds differently to weight loss techniques, it is important to understand what works best for your body. Also looking at your intake throughout the day can be a great way to see if you are mindlessly eating calories or maybe overdoing it a bit.

Good luck on your journey! Just make sure you are monitoring your blood sugar levels closely!
Thanks Sarah. Day 1 isThanks Sarah. Day 1 is coming to an end, and I can feel the hunger but still have control over it... I had a total of 4 blasts today. I tried to drink water in between but it was a little bit overwhelming. I have been dealing with insomnia for a while now. It's about 11pm and it looks like I'm a little sleepy. We'll see if I can sleep the entire night. I'm gonna check my blood sugar levels when I wake up tomorrow. Good night
Day 2. I dreamed of a big juicy steak last night... It felt so real that I woke up disappointed at myself for indulging, only to realie that it was just a dream lol. The hunger is still controllable, and I had good energy this morning . Also I had a very good night sleep for the first time in several weeks. Day 3 is in the loop...
Hello! I just bought my NB this weekend. I love smoothies but my blender just didnt break it down well enough. I have used this to make my normal smoothies but want to try some of the recipees and I am confused by a few things. The recipees seem to call for a lot of fruit (3-4 cups of fruit in some cases). For example 1 cored pear, 1 cored apple, 1 banana and 1 cup pineapple. That is 4 fruit servings in 1 tall glass! Is this for one person? Also, my max lines are only half way up the cup when the picture in the book shows them near the top. There is no way I can get all the ingredients in and stay below the max line. Is the max line only for the water and I can fill the cup with spinach and fruit? I have not been able to find the answers to these anywhere in the book. Thank you!
I agree with you. I just started today and I finally used my smaller container for myself. I used baby spinach, half a banana, a few strawberries and blueberries. I really liked it and I did kept everything to the line and then put a couple of ice cubes. I am going to start slowly with the nuts and powders...just to adjust. Good luck!
Day 3. I had a rough start because I woke at 3.30 am. Insomnia is back... As a result, I went back to bed around 8 am (after blast #1) and slept in until about 2pm. Checked out my lab results and from last week blood analysis and they are really bad... Hemoglobin A1c: 10.1 Increased risk for diabetes: 5.7 - 6.4 Diabetes: >6.4 Glycemic control for adults with diabetes: <7.0 I had 4 blasts today instead of the usual 5 (laughing internally at "usual" on day 3). My energy level was not spectacular today but I wasn't in bad shape either. They say that the fast only starts at Day 5 so I'm trying to stay focused. Day 4 is close...
Day 4. Darn it! I'm hungry... It must be because today I had to run some errands away from my NutriBullet. At this point, I wish I could just sleep it off but I know it won't happen. Day 5 is going to be a real test. I could do a nice tuna sandwich right now (So random...). Lord help me lol. Day 5 is next!

You can fill ingredients slightly above the max line, the max line is really for your liquids. Also you can modify any of recipes to include less fruits. Many people find having more fruit helps them transition into a healthier diet and gets them to eat more veggies in the long run. Feel free to use less fruits in your Blast and up the veggies!
Day 5. I woke up with absolutely no hunger. I found it very disturbing... I know now that I will do a minimum of 7 days of juicing fast. Now I'm trying to get myself mentally prepared for week 2. I plan on weighing myself on Sunday. Hopefully that'll help... I'm having a hard time drinking water since I've started this process. I was hoping to drink 2.5 liters a day but I'm far from it. I think that I'm gonna add some cardio to my routine starting on Day 8. Waiting for Day 6 for now!
Another newbie here. The NB was highly recommended to me by close friends after I found out this past week that I have colitis. Basically, I need to get nutrients in an easy-to-digest form (no raw veggies for me anymore) and lose weight (30+ pounds, ideally). I also need to work on de-stressing as I have significant anxiety and a stressful job. I am drinking my first experiment as I type (spinach, apple, pear, banana, chia) and it's pretty yummy. I'm a bit worried about my diagnosis but am going to use this as an opportunity to finally get back to a healthy lifestyle. I'm very athletic (tennis and boxing), so I need to learn to get the most out of my food to keep me energetic and hopping. DF
Day 6. Today looked a lot like yesterday but I can sense that I'm weaker than my normal self (moving slower, not a lot of stamina). I wish I had a remote control to push the ff button on and get to Day 14! I found some videos on youtube about a lot of celebrities who passed away due to Diabetes. It's crazy!!! Everybody in this country need to own a NutriBullet!!!! Anywho, let's talk on Day 7.
Hi. I'm new to nutri-bullet. I have a question....I have very sensitive skin which leads to contact dermatitis/eczema. I'm trying very hard to eliminate chemicals / preservatives from skin care routine and from my diet. What are some good recipes to improve skin and calm inflammation /immune system??
Day 7. Last day of Week 1 and I got 2 more to go... I hope I can make it. The afternoon naps seem necessary now. I'm now weighing myself everyday and it is helping... Tonight I went to the gym for the 1st time in a long while. I did about 27 min of cardio, and I plan on doing this everyday from now on. This will probably increase my hunger but it will surely increase the weight loss aswell. I know for a fact I'm getting through Day 8!

Check out this article: http://www.nutriliving.com/blog/5-tips-becoming-beautylicious And some of these beauty Blasts: http://www.nutriliving.com/recipes/search/keyword/beauty Here's another video from David Wolfe: http://www.nutriliving.com/blog/whats-good-blast-skin-disorders
Day 8 & 9. I certainly didDay 8 & 9. I certainly did not fall off the wagon. On Day 8, I had a little more energy than the previous day. I was able to increase my workout by 6 minutes, split between 3 stations instead of 2 (Bike, Elliptical, and Treadmill). I had 4 juices. Today, I was really sore and tired. I even felt dizzy a couple of times but I believe it was because I didn't have enough juices (3 total). I think that I'm going to have to dig deeper in the NutriBullet recipe booklet in order to keep my taste buds interested here. I would REALLY love to eat a nice and thick juicy steak right now but I'm just reaching the half point of this journey. Weighing myself daily has been a real help. If I keep this up, by Sunday I will be under 250 lbs for the first time in almost a decade!! I gotta be strong...
Day 10. NB is officially my new BFF. I took my juices with me today and I felt very fortunate to have these 2 extra containers from my NB original package. Weight loss has been really good. I might actually get under 250 lbs earlier than expected. I went to the gym today and did 11 miles in 30 min on the stationary bike with no resistance. I'm thinking I should add some core exercises tomorrow. We'll see how I feel. 11 more days to go. I still have a lot of work to do...
Day 11 I'm taking a break. I need to eat meat for at least a day... I will be back
I am new to juicing. New to Nutribullet. I need to lose quite a bit of weight. I feel extremely unhealthy. I quit drinking ...gained 30 lbs and then quit smoking and gained another 20. So, am down to my last bad habit... food! Would it better to start with a detox...liquid only or what do you recommend? Thanks! Looking forward to feeling better soon!
Hi, I got my NB a couple of weeks ago. I've used it about 5 times, and have a few questions. 1) After about 30 seconds I can smell an odor almost like something is burning. Is something wrong with my machine? 2) I'm confused about how to prep the food. The extraction prep chart that was suggested in other posts states to peel certain fruits and to leave out grape stems. However, there are recipes that say NOT to peel those fruits and to leave the grape stems. 3) My blasts are not totally liquified. I have seeds in them and a thick texture. Any suggestions are appreciated.
i don't know the answer to your question but i just used my machine for the 2nd time. i too smelled something. hopefully a moderator will answer.

Hi Sarah, As I mentioned, IHi Sarah, As I mentioned, I did go to the extraction prep chart. That is why I'm confused. Some of the foods it says to peel, I am told to leave the peel on for certain recipes in the book I got with my NB . Also, the chart says not to include grape stems; but the book says leave them. You didn't address the thick texture of my blasts. Do you have any suggestions? I usually blend for about 60 seconds. Is that not long enough? Thanks, Hope

It really comes down to preference, I personally like to take the stems off my grapes and remove the skins from my citrus fruits. Experiment with leaving them on vs. off and see what you like better. If your Blasts are coming out too thick, I would suggest adding more liquid to ensure the texture is smooth and creamy, this will also help it blend better and create a smoother texture with less chunks. You may also need to run your machine for about 30 seconds to ensure foods are broken down. If you continue to have issues with the texture, I suggest calling customer service.

Hi there! Congrats on the healthy changes you have already made! You may want to search through our recipes tab, you can search by ingredients so you can find foods that you love. Following a recipe can help you get a feel for how to use the machine and what works. We have a 3 day cleanse that outlines exactly what to eat for 3 days and includes some tasty recipes, this may be a good resource to help you change things up a bit: https://nutriliving-images.imgix.net/documents/pdf/NL_Spring_Cleanse.pdf
My question is about seeds.... I have diverticulitis and have already gone through surgery and had a section of my colon removed. I see that you encourage so much foods with seeds and I would "love" to add these foods to my diet. When I watched the commercial on TV it certainly appeared that everything was completely broken down.... if I add flax seeds, chia seeds, etc., will they be completely broken down by the Nutribullet? I'M CERTAINLY HOPING THE ANSWER IS YES!!!!
Hi I'm a newbie with the nutriblast and I'm looking for a recipe that's quick an easy for me to make in the mornings and that's going to give me the energy I need to start my day off.
I have a question about the recipes. Are the meant to be used in the tall cup or the larger one? Thanks!

I would suggest using the NutriBullet RX, it breaks everything down and is the most powerful unit we have to date. It leaves you with a very creamy texture and even breaks down blackberry seeds. That would be a great option for you!

Check out the bottom of this article for some plant-based protein options: http://www.nutriliving.com/blog/fill-er-protein For good veg additions: broccoli, microgreens, a supergreen like chlorella or spirulina (also good for protein), avocado, and celery or tomato. Also, regarding the water - some warm water with lemon in the morning helps prime the digestive system to work at its peak...not so much a direct metabolic boost, but an important component to aid digestion and absorb nutrients! Good Q :)
Hello, Just received myHello, Just received my nutribullet and am looking forward to using this to lower my cholesterol. Hoping to find supportive friends here!!!
70 years young, living alone for several years ... not much energy and somewhat depressed. Too many days having morning coffee and breakfast burrito at McDs ~ way too often. Purchased my 900w NB last week and switched to all organic at Whole Foods. Having fun trying all different cleansing recipes and eating healthy ... feeling better already. Goodbye to coffee, McDs and Hello to Nutriliving.
Hi I just got my Nutribullet RX. I was looking for the Nature's Prescription quiz. Can you tell me how I find that?

Stay tuned, we are working on adjusting some errors we were having with the quiz and will have it posted in a couple months. Please continue to check back. Thanks! In the meantime you can browse our website, search recipes by your favorite ingredients or by a specific health condition, read through our forums and learn a lot about Blasting and nutrition. If you have any questions feel free to ask, we are here to help!
I was also looking for the quiz! Thanks for asking the question:)
Used our NB this morning for the first time. I followed exactly, the recipe for phase 1 which states to use the tall cup. The recipe called for 1 cup of blackberries, 1 cup of honeydew, and 1 peach with one banana. Upon squishing everything in the tall cup, I had no room for any spring water, however I added less than 1 teaspoon. I also purchased the super boost, so added that. Upon screwing the extractor blade unit to the tall cup, and tightening, placing on the motor, after about 10 seconds, I noticed pink fluid leaking. I immediately stopped the unit, unplugged it, and then noticed the leak had gotten down into the motor, I think. I kept the unit upside-down on a towel all day, however, nothing came back out of the base unit. Now I'm afraid to use it. I did receive a second unit which I will try tomorrow. Think we need better clarification on the amount to use of the fruit products. Also when a recipe calls for nuts, do we have those nuts ground up into powder by the milling blade ahead of time, and put some of the nut powder in the recipe? Or just add a few pumpkin seeds, or whatever nuts is called for, in with the extractor blade assembly to make the smoothies? Thanks for your help! Just starting out, but very hopeful in Texas.

Since I could not find the Quiz either, I created a quick Excel spread sheet which allowed me to enter each of the scores then just auto sum...worked well and took little time! red - Heart Health orange - Immunity yellow - Inflamation green - Detox blue - Brain & Central Nervous System Hope this helps :)

You can use any liquid you like, we suggest unsweetened almond milk, coconut water, green tea. You can use this as a meal replacement or as a snack. I suggest using the tall cup as a meal replacement and the short cup as a snack. You can use this in your lifestyle as you see fit, so it really can be modified to work with your life.
Hi. I'm new here, got my NBHi. I'm new here, got my NB today, washed the tall cup and lid straight away and made my first blast! a couple of handfuls of spinach, a couple of handfuls of frozen summer fruits, a banana and water, it was not bad, maybe could do with it being a bit sweeter, but I have a sweet tooth and will try and get used to it as is! I'm looking for any advice that anyone can give me on anything really, I have a family history of bowel cancer, I've had a small stroke about 4 years ago, I'm at THAT age that's no fun for a woman! and think I have the beginnings of arthritis, good eh? I'm not good with eating fruit and veg, and bought the NB as a way of eating more of the healthy stuff! Thanks for taking the time to read x

Thank you, I'll give it a look, I just made one with, spinach, banana, frozen pineapple, strawberries and pomegranate, absolutely lush! I've bought a whole load of fruit today, cut it up and frozen it so I can put it into bags and just grab it as I want,
Hi, I am new to group. Love my nutribullet ... Have been doing at least 1-2 daily blasts & have cut way down on pain meds. Looking fwd to learn more from this website. Any comments from those who have experienced weight loss since using the nutribullet would be appreciated. I want to get completely off medication(s) & have a more healthy lifestyle. I freeze my fruits & put in separate bags, easy to grab & go. Too, I use Arizona green tea with gingsing in place of water in my nutriblasts.

Make sure the Arizona green tea is unsweetened, or you can easily brew your own green tea at home, cool it and use it as the liquid in your NutriBlast.
I have been using my Nutribullet for a couple of years. Just received my NutribulletRx and used it this morning. I created my profile here before but never looked at the forums until now. I am looking forward to meeting new friends and sharing ideas.

Just got my nutribullet 900. Can I put ice or frozen fruit in to make a slushy or sorb et?
On the subject of making your blast a little sweeter, I use a small handful of frozen sweet black cherries in my blasts to up the sweetness a bit.
Need Storage HELP! Hi I am very new to NB. I am using the NBrx. I see the list you have put for prep. It is great you added that. May I ask, can we get the same list on storage? This is very important to me. Example: Swiss Chard. I know/knew nothing about it. So I bought some, labeled my bpa free plastic storage container the day I got it. I washed it and put it in the fridge. I just read on Whole Foods website not to wash it until use, and store it with a plastic bag (dry). Hmmmm. Please bare with me :-) I'm not in very good health. 100% disabled Vet trying to get back what I can of my health. I try to make my daily living food prep as easy as possible. This is my goal for NBrx. I put all my veggies and stuff in its separate bpa container. Bought at Kroger/Walmart etc. So when it's time to blast, little actual time is spent preparing the blast. I now realize I may have to alter this routine. I am willing. I am asking you all to please help me and other people on here, to help in storage without having to go out and buy expensive equipment. I mean if I have to do that I will budget it. Please help...Michael from Nashville.

I just started using the nutribullet last week, and have been using the 1st 5 recipes in phase one. I don't feel good. I have been kinda "spacey" feeling, not feeling like working out - kinda weak, upset stomach, don't want coffee, don't feel like eating sometimes. Is this normal?? help!
My DH and I just purchased the NutriBullet RX this past weekend, and we're starting to use it. I'm curious about how the Nature's Prescription Quiz is really supposed to work - both my husband and I did the test from the book manually (and I put all our answers and the color-coded numbers in a spreadsheet) and I entered the same answers into the quiz online, and we got different results. Why would that be? Also, just being new to the website, it would be awesome to have a search feature to look for discussions based on key words.
