The Smoothie Revolution

Maintaining a healthy lifestyle is as much about the diet as it is about the exercise.

In fact, most experts say the split in a person’s diet and exercise regime, when it comes to weight loss is 80% focus on diet and 20% focus on being active. More recently from celebs to everyday Joe, smoothies have become the choice of meal replacements and snacks when it comes to living a healthier lifestyle.

A smoothie is made up of blended raw fruit or vegetables with other ingredients such as water, ice, dairy products and other ingredients. Sometimes the ingredients are as simple as apples and pears, and other times ingredients can be more complex such as raw fibre and coconut. Various recipes for smoothies provide different results depending on the ingredients. For example, some ingredients promote weight-loss, others healthier skin and some are meant to simply detox.

While juicers and blenders have been used for these hearty creations in the past, the NutriBullet has evolved and changed the way smoothies are made. The NutriBullet brand founded in 2012 is equipped with thousands of health articles, NutriBlast smoothie recipes, professional Q&A forums, and so much more.

The content on NutriLiving addresses a multitude of topics including women’s health, men’s health, weight control, digestion, inflammation, and more to help guide your health and fitness lifestyle.

So how do you kick start your own smoothie revolution? Start with getting a NutriBullet and try these recipes:
