I happen to be eating Ruffles "All Dressed" right now. These things are amazing. Very addictive.



I won't be making a nutribullet smoothie out of them though.

BTW my latest bed bath and beyond had a Bluetooth nutribullet on the cover this month. A mere $180.00. Not sure what the BT does..
Great. Now my Nutribullet can sync to my Garmin.

I love my bluetooth cordless hose. It goes with me everywhere.

I bought a vitamix 2 years ago. Make a morning smoothie almost everyday. Usually a mango, organic apple, 3 tbs organic chia, 2 cups organic kale, one cup water. Probably 300 calories. Same as a bowl of cereal and milk. The thing is, if not for the blender I wouldnt eat the fruit and greens.

Smoothies take away the chewing so its easier to get way too much. Otherwise, you just have to watch out for that. Also, there is good and bad cholesterol. So you can't just say cholesterol. HDL vs LDL would be more specific.

I use mine daily. I can use it for breakfast along with a flip top lid that I can use in the car for for a quick and easy lunch after a ride. I would say the main benefit is that I eat a lot of greens that I wouldn’t otherwise eat.

I briefly discussed the same thing with him. Full fat dairy is only 'healthy' in the context of a diet that includes dairy milk (an entirely unnecessary component of a human diet) where 'healthy' means having a better balance of fat, protein, and sugar. Low fat dairy has a higher proportion of sugar to fat and protein (but far fewer calories as a result) so by that simple metric is less 'healthy'. Why any substance intended to fatten newborn calves quickly is considered a 'healthy' choice for an adult human is beyond me, but that's where we are.

Do these Nutribullet type "blenders", make better smoothies than what a "traditional blender" does?

The only thing that really matters with a blender are the watts -- the more the better. >1000 watts.

Are these Nutribullets and their clones, any more powerful than a "normal" blender?


I am wondering if there is something about them that I am not getting, that makes them better smoothy makers than a traditional blender?

They look pretty. Don't you think?

What type of frying pan do you use: cast iron, stainless steal, aluminum, copper? Does one fry your eggs better than the other? If it matters to you then it matters. Otherwise, it doesn't matter. I hope this answers your question.

I usually have bacon for up to the first two weeks of a month, I just don't eat it all at once. Crackers or faugosa bread (cheese and peppers) are some of my downfall...

I don't fry anything, I cook in a microwave, often from scratch.
