Nutribullet - The Game Changer


Although I’ve had an unused juicer in my cupboard for years, the Nutribullet was a game changer for me.
Here’s how I do it:

I start with two tablespoons of whole flaxseed and grind it fresh for five seconds.
Then I scoop up a giant amount of “greens” (mostly spinach) that I buy in big bags from Costco.

I add about five florets of broccoli or some other cruciferous vegetable (kale, cabbage, cauliflower).

I almost always add a small carrot too unless I am making room for some other vegetables.

For a sweetener I use any fruit but please note that this is a vegetable smoothie not a fruit smoothie. Fruit should be chewed and enjoyed like candy.

Add Water. I use the largest cup that Nutribullet has.

Mix.

Reopen and add some protein powder. I am currently using Costco’s Organic Plant Based Protein Powder, chocolate flavor. Yes, chocolate because chocolate is a plant and it mixes well with vegetable flavors.

Mix again briefly with the protein without creating froth.

Enjoy (or slam).

Then find a good mirror and look for immediate health changes. Smile. Feel good. Bask in the antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, prebiotic (not probiotic) bliss.

Repeat daily for the rest of your life.

Whole-Food, Plant-Based Diet


With the zeal of a convert I find myself joyfully migrating to a whole-food, plant-based diet (low-oil and low-processed sugar).
My diet is not an all-or-nothing proposition, so I consider any migration toward this new dietary standard to be a positive move.
I am not vegan because I think the label 'vegan" has been tarnished by some extremists that can eat fries and drink beer and call themselves vegan with the zeal of religious terrorists.
I’m not that.
But I am for following sound principles and I appreciate Dr. Michael Greger’s style in articulating these principles.
