And from an appliance point of view, a NutriBullet(R) packs a punch, with its compact size and exceptional nutrient extraction power. It’s the perfect appliance for anyone looking to include extraordinary nutrition in a lifestyle. This ingenious book combines the principles of healthy eating and nutrition with 175 delicious and easy-to-prepare recipes for smoothies, dressings, dips, soups, sauces and desserts. The first part of the book provides comprehensive information on how a smoothie can be part of a healthy diet as well as the healing properties of superfoods. The benefits include everything from radiant skin and gastrointestinal health, to weight management and pregnancy health. All the recipes are made from wholesome foods and are an effective way to increase the overall nutritional density in a diet and bridge the gap between the nutrients needed and the nutrients missing. Each recipe can be tailored to suit various needs and tastes, making them an easy and convenient way to get healthy. Some of the recipes for an energising start are a Blueberry and Coconut Protein Smoothie, and a Hydrating Spinach, Berry and Orange Smoothie.
