I received this product from NB. Also, I obtained the associated literature and hard-bound book, and the extra container and blade-base package in the shipment, as well. I had owned the Magic Bullet and liked it. Thus, I knew what to expect from the NB physical product, to some extent.
Reasoning--Why I gave into the TV:
I've carried a lot of obesity-weight for many years and have needed a "catalyst" to shed the weight. Well, this concept has exceeded my expectations greatly, and I'm not the only one who has noted this: Nowadays, processed, sugary, salty, and junk foods no longer keep a head-lock upon me! Nowadays, I desire whole foods solely! Exercise and waking activity have increased markedly, also!
Generally, I avoid restaurants, also. A valid reason is saving money--in my experience, the product facilitates that further. It seems nowadays that every such entity really desires at least $10/per meal. For the most part, I consider restaurants hopeless. Simply put--even allowing for given added bulk, fat, sugar, and salt/sodium--restaurants and their associated foodservice companies add ingredients and chemicals--including MSG. Such ingredients may work well to induce people to eat more than they might otherwise--more product thus sells. Not even owners of small enterprises in the traditional restaurant biz know what the foodservice companies may put into their products. Generally, it's a mystery--at least to some extent. (Why rely upon the unknown?) Additionally, a key part of the industry's food "game" is saving money on their product, as well--certainly, this proves especially keen to the "fast food" biz.( The systematic-approach (perfected best in fast food enterprises) may succeed quite well at making foods pathogen-safe--it also works well for such businesses to economize and lessen costs of foodstuffs, as well.) The industry uses many tricks to make their food palatable enough to prove enjoyable, anyway. ("Doctoring" food that has gone bad isn't that uncommon, either.)
(OK, I make it once a week with relatives! I'm not totally rigid: That in itself is a recipe for failure! I wish that many more sensible alternatives existed, of course--especially given certain markets.)
Magic Bullet vs. NutriBullet:
The company indicates that the Magic Bullet shouldn't run for more than two minutes at a time. I note no such restrictions concerning the NutriBullet, though. At moving time recently, the Magic Bullet went into the estate sale and shedding. The NB is far more powerful, and the blade design is better, tougher, and very clever. A tough grinding blade base also is included with both the Magic Bullet and this "upgrade" product--it can grind up your flax seeds and coffee beans--no need for a coffee grinder anymore.
Utility and Convenience:
Putting flax seeds (or any seeds/shelled nuts) directly in with your smoothie's veggies and fruits grinds them up with everything else--thus, nobody using the NB needs to grind up flax seeds separately! Of course, this cuts down on time, cleaning, and aggravation. Your remaining flax seeds remain whole in the fridge--no need to worry much about rancidity of ground flax seed or any worries concerning impurities linked to flax oil and gel-vitamins. The thing is easy to clean--the base pretty much rinses clean. The jars are dishwasher-safe or easily hand cleaned. The whole system together is somewhat bulky on a shelf or in a cabinet (it doesn't "nest")--it's worth space, though!
NB vs. Competitors:
I've used a juicer before (I have one up on a shelf--unused for years)--everyone agrees that they are a royal hassle to clean. Really, let's face reality--juicing isn't economical enough for most of us who don't live on or near the west coast states. It's hard to keep enough fruit and veggies around--the yield is pitiful with juicing. Juicing proved the bright idea and best concept when those products and infomercials appeared on TV years ago--the NutriBullet goes a few steps further and makes the same concepts far more usable and economical. Juicing's pulp and fiber are included with the rest of the raw foods--further emulsified and useful. Purchasing less-than-optimal foods to "fill me up" proves no longer economical, either.
Given most blenders, this is far more convenient: Note how thick the jars' plastic is! (BPA-free, etc., of course.) Probably, NB's jars prove thicker than those on the current competitor's products. Perhaps certain other blenders can emulsify to this degree--blenders have a bigger footprint and more cleaning aggravation, though. If ever I need a blender again, I own a $400+ bar-quality one and also one from the '50s--both really tough, and perhaps close to the best for consumers, I think.
The NB is best intended for easy smoothie emulsification, though: The company behind NB offers the correct concepts--the whole package needed concerning raw veggies, fruits, nuts, seeds, and other raw whole foods. Included or easily obtainable are nutrition and even specific chronic-disease advice--how this may help--along with food preparation, food shopping info, what to avoid, and convenience. This likely is cheaper than the currently relevant competitor product on TV, as well. I thought about obtaining that also, to see how it stacks up, but I don't see the point now....
Nutribullet's info warns users to avoid or remove pits in strong-pit foods and apple seeds. No blender can grind through such pits, anyway (cherries, apricots, plums, peaches, nectarines, and related fruits). Avoiding apple seeds is new to me, though--NB indicates that grinding up such seeds and strong-pits produce cyanide: I'm glad to know that.
An aside: I may incorporate my other blenders for grinding up and freezing (as necessary) what's left as rind, dirtied, or waste--mixing in spent coffee grounds and crushed egg shells. The result proves useful for worm-composting inside the home--and for burial outside. (Even moderate separated citrus waste thus proves useful later. Those wastes may be buried in a separate spot (or separate spots) for garden worms--or, in a separate part of a sufficient outside compost pile. (After sufficient decomposition and acid dilution, worms gladly return to such garden spots--I noted a robin over such a garden spot about two weeks after a citrus waste burial! Grinding up such wastes will speed the process greatly, naturally--as a practical matter, grinding up citrus wastes proves necessary, I suppose. Yeah, it's possible to return citrus wastes to the earth, after all!) Coffee grounds add even more acid and fertility, of course. After all, coffee-growing regions prove some of the most fertile of all. I've noted that it's OK to to throw some unwanted coffee and grounds directly onto garden soil, if desired. Given composting and a sufficient outdoor garden plot, coffee-grounds, egg shells, and wastes from plant foods need not meet the landfill. Only wrappers, containers, pits, etc., might.
By the way, the coffee fruit (not bean) recently has been proven to be quite potent with anti-oxidants: People from such growing regions have known this and benefited for some time now, too. Not long ago, I checked it out: The whole fruit isn't yet available here. That's yet another foodstuff that we may grind up with the NB, or juice, someday!
I have had UC for 7 years. I was on high doses of Prednisone for 4 years before I found this diet. Doctors were suggesting surgery. I stayed on the diet for 4-5 months before I started cheating a little. I am proud to say that the past 7 months have been pred free.
My son loves his Leappad more than anything right now. And the most amazing thing about it is he can now read at age 3 years and 3 months. No lie. He got the Leappad for his 3rd birthday and we didnt open it for another month or so. After we finally opened it he immediately took to it even if he could'nt navigate through it yet. A few days later i decided to buy him some new apps since the ones that came with the device seemed boring (to me, at least). One of the apps i got is called The Letter Factory and it costs $10. It was more than worth it since my son became totally obsessed with that video app and he kept playing it again and again. He watched it almost all day everyday until he had memorized most of the dialogue. Anyway, after Christmas we got him new apps and one of them was called The Word Factory app and after a couple weeks of him watching it, he started reading many 3-letter words.
We love this Leappad2 and think its an awesome educational toy. Just be careful because kids can get really addicted or attached to them. My son takes this with him everywhere he goes and gets upset when we take it away from him. Make sure to get the gel skin protector too to protect it from falls and such. (Ours has a few scratches and chips from being dropped by a child not paying attention to where he's going while staring down at the Leappad). Last thing, is to get some rechargeable batteries for it because with my son's usage of it, we charge batteries pretty much every single day.
I have had the unit for about a week and have tried all 6 flavors in the sample pack. They all had the after taste from the sucralose and just weren't very good. I used Mio drops and they made a really good low calorie drink. I purchased the natural soda mixes from Bed Bath and Beyond (the ones with sugar) but they just weren't as good as I had hoped. I decided to bite the bullet and went to Sams club and bought a 2.5 gallon box of Fanta Orange for $33. I also bought this in order to pour the syrup from the bag into a container that would make it easy to pour into the bottle after carbonating. Since the mix is different I just converted the liters into cups and determined that 1 liter is pretty much 4.25 cups. Since the mix is 5 to 1 I filled a bottle up to the fill line to carbonate then poured out a little less than 3/4 cup (approx 1/6 of the amount) and marked it on the bottle. I now carbonate a full bottle then pour out some of the water to get it to the line I marked...then fill in syrup till it reaches the fill line. What I end up with is fantastic Orange Fanta......it tastes exactly like Fanta because it is Fanta.
On Sam's website they sell RC and a few other flavors by the gallon so that is what I will eventually wind up doing...2.5 gallons is a ton of syrup
I wish this would have been required reading in my early 20's. It was still pretty good for my mid 30's too. Overall, it's a gentle shove on the modern version of political correctness vs. traditional gender roles debate. Every chapter has a relatable story both from an entry level job and a high level career perspective. This would be a great book for women to read together so they can share similar experiences. I read it week by week one chapter at a time and these elegant life lessons sunk in. I'm also reading "I shouldn't be telling you this" and I think that would be an excellent follow up book to this one.
