Week 1: Nutribullet drinks. Start of getting healthier

Nutribullet

Well here we are. As promised I am going to start my health kick. As I said, I really need to get myself sorted and lose weight and start eating healthier. I’m not saying its all going to be easy and plain sailing but every journey starts with one step.
The main things I need to do straight off is to start taking in more fruit and veg. Yeah I have sunday dinner with veg on but thats not a lot for a whole week and its normally boiled to hell and back so all the goodness would be gone out of it. So with that in mind, I am going to start using my Nutribullet seriously. I can see lots of experiments coming up while I mess about with flavours and health benefits etc. The other thing I really need to do is cut right back or stop completely, my bread intake. I am a major bread freak. I would have bread with every meal if I could.

I got weighed a few days ago to get my starting weight. It was about what I was expecting. I am currently 17 stone 4 pound ( 107.9549 kg ). Well over weight. No wonder I have back problems so much.

So today I experimented with two different Nutribullet recipes.

1:

1 x banana
1 x medium pear
Handful of red grapes
2 inch slice of cucumber
50% Kale
1 level tsp of Spirulina

This was nice but as with any drink you make with banana in it, thats all you can taste.
At first it had a very thick froth on the top, so I drank a bit then blasted it again in the Bullet and it turned out really smooth then. Like I say, its nice but I can imagine getting bored of the banana taste after a while. Someone recommended doubling up on the other ingredients to combat that.

Drink number 2

50% Kale
Handful of frozen mixed fruit
1 x cored apple
Goji Berries

This is my best yet. Such a refreshing taste. I would say the predominant taste is the apple. It has a curious reddy / brown colour to it.
Notice, I left out the banana on this one. Soon as I took a drink I literally said ‘wow’. It was such a change from the other drinks I have made in the past. This one is definitely my favourite so far.
