My husband and I recently launched a healthy eating initiative in our household. First we had to look sorrowfully around our home and make a list of all the wonderful yummy foods in our cupboards that we would no longer be buying. It was a sad day, but we managed to get through it! We have been doing lots of research on eating healthy and we decided to try out smoothies. Smoothies have long been hailed as an easy way to get all of your fruits and veggies in as well as eat healthy ingredients like flax and chia seeds that one would not normally chow down on.
Armed with a firm resolve we made our way to Costco and attacked their fruits and veggies section with a vengeance! with a cart brimming full of nutritious food, we headed to the blender section to pick out the new beast that would help us tackle our cart full of produce! We decided on a Ninja Ultima Blender Plus (BL830), I have lots of friends that have been nutritional superstars for years and they all recommended the Ninja as a great blender that will last a while. We have been pleased with it and hope to continue blending for years to come!
We have been doing smoothies in the mornings for a little over two weeks now. What we have noticed is a marked increase in our energy level throughout the day. I haven’t needed to down an entire pot of coffee to get through one day. Did I mention we have a newborn? Coffee is our lifeblood. We have also started doing a mini exercise series at night after we get the baby to sleep (this usually starts around 11-12 at night). I think that it is fair to mention that these Nutritious Breakfast smoothies will help you…”clean out.” Make sure your plumbing is in working order before downing copious amounts of smoothies. Heed my warning we learned this the hard way.

Smoothies are a great way to kick start your day!
