Gilly Is Juicing!

To get the MOST out of life.. you need to get the MOST out of your food!

Over the last couple of months I have spent a lot of time reading about nutrition, including reading the amazing Eat. Nourish. Glow by Amelia Freer which has introduced the powers of juicing to me.

811XBaEo4EL._SL1500_Any excuse to buy a kitchen gadget I treated myself to the Nutribullet Pro.  Even bigger and better, the Nutribullet 900 Series Superfood nutrition extractor came equipped with a powerful high-torque power base and 900 watt motor for a smoother consistency. It also included a high torque power base, 2x extractor blades, an oversized cup, 2x tall cups, a short cup, handled and regular lip rings, flip top lid, 2x resealable lids, user manual, recipe books and a nutritionist book.  So easy to use and even easier to clean (well apart from when the hubby use’s it and doesn’t put the lid on properly 😦 )  I have now been using the Nutribullet for over a month and love the varied juices that you can make.  I even make soups!

To make the most from the juicing there are four easy steps to follow:

  1. Fill the cup with 50% leafy greens + 50% fruit (Boosts Optional)
  2. Fill only up to the MAX line with water and/or ice (coconut water really good too!)
  3. Add 1/8 to 1/4 cup nuts/seeds if desired.
  4. Twist on the Nutribullet blade and blend until smooth.
