Product review: Nutribullet

Some bloggers get paid to do product reviews. I'm not that blogger. So here is my free product review of a product that has really helped me make some major changes in my life.

I'm not a veggie person. In fact, until recently my veggie repertoire included potatoes (don't count), tomatoes (don't count), corn (doesn't count), green beans and peas. Count me out for everything else hence, why dieting and weight loss seemed impossible to me!

After joining my spin class and being accepted into 'The Mountain Biker' group (despite being the only one who doesn't actually mountain bike, although I'm currently being converted...more on that later) I began to hear stories about "bullets". Come to find out several of them LOVE the bullet! So once I decided to get really serious about eating right and losing weight, I invested in my own bullet. I blow more money on stuff that has no chance of improving my life so what the heck.

Now I have a bullet every morning for breakfast. While I don't branch out as much as some of the other folks do when experimenting with ingredients, I found a recipe that works for me and I'm sticking with it for now.  What goes into my bullet?

1-2 cups power greens (spinach, kale etc)
3/4 - 1 cup raw broccoli
1/2 cup triple berry medley (frozen)
2 tbs hemp hearts
1 tbs chia seed
1tbs goji berries
1/2 banana
water and ice

And the correct way to make a bullet? Veggies in first, fruit in next, power foods (hemp, chia, goji) in next and top it off with water and ice.

So now I get my veggies and I've lost weight. Was it because of the bullet? Maybe, maybe not. I've made a lot of changes in my life besides a bullet for breakfast, but I do know that before the bullets, I wasn't as successful as I've been since LAB (life after bullet).

The bullet is amazing....just throw it all in there (most things you don't have to peel, slice or cut...seriously just chuck it in there and let the bullet do its work!) BUT read your manual, there are a few things that need a little prep work before putting them in the bullet, like apples!

Super cute cups make them even more delicious!


  1. I have something similar (different brand, same idea) and I seriously LOVE it. I'm with you---I like some veggies---peas, green beans, broccoli, cauliflower, stir fry pretty much anything, but the fact that I can put spinach, carrots, broccoli into a blender with fruit and drink it as a smoothie? Best thing ever!

  2. Ooooh how I love spin!! I wish my gym offered more classes during the day care hours! My hubs leaves for work too early so I can't get a class in before he's gone :(
    I need to get one of these! I hate washing the huge blender for my small smoothie.
    I've never added broccoli to my smoothies. I feel like raw broccoli is kind of bitter... do you notice it in a smoothie? And how have I never heard of hemp hearts?
    ALSO! Why don't tomatoes count?
