Get More Greens in! Why Blending is Better than Juicing

Do you struggle with getting your greens in? Many of us opt for a juice or a salad when we are feeling like we need to get more veggies into our diets. The problem is, rarely do these on-the-go meals provide enough nutrients. They may seem healthy but could they be doing more harm than good?

Busy adults and children rarely get enough greens in their diet. By greens we mean leafy veggies, filled with vitamins and nutrients and often hard to eat if your short on time or picky about taste. Stress makes us reach for the easy stuff, that juice or side salad. Stressed out parents struggle too. Whether you’ve got a picky eater or you’ve got very little time to take care of yourself, getting these vital nutrients into ones diet can be hard. No one has much time these days to focus on how many veggies they eat, but our bodies need them for optimal functioning. We need more vegetables and a great way to get them in our everyday diet is to drink them.

Day 7: Gift for The Green Juice Junkie

This is the one gift I would strongly suggest getting anyone who loves their green juice or any blended beverage. I have used this present more than any other gift- ever!  The cost of just one green juice a day adds up to about $250.00- $300.00 a month, depending on your juice joint.  Instead of overpriced greens, give the health nut on your list the gift that wallets will thank you for, the NutriBullet.

Nutritionists recommend this product all the time, as the health benefits are huge. The difference between blending over juicing is that you retain the fiber from the plants, which is essential for healthy digestion. Since the NutriBullet is powerful enough to break down plants and seeds, it can promise fast absorption nutrients. I have made apple sauce, carrot juice, and even chia seed smoothies in seconds.

The convenience factor is a huge selling point. It takes up very little space in your cabinet or on the counter and takes seconds to clean.  No cleaning out blenders, or separating pulp, rinse it out and your done. You make your creation in the bullet cup and then it detaches as a cup. You can put a lid on it and store it or freeze it.  This summer my popsicles were all made in seconds from the NutriBullet.

Any one living in tight quarters, in the mood for a new health gadget or craving a cheaper source of green juice will love this gift.  I’ve had mine for two years, and its working as well as it did when I first opened the box.

This blender is seriously cheap. It’s sold for $119.94 through the distributor and you can get it for $108 on Amazon.
