Happy New Year everyone! May God bless you abundantly with health and good eatings throughout the year. As for me, I am making lots of changes in diet for health reasons. I made a great small investment when I purchased the Nutribullet so I’ve been on a smoothie kick as of late and it is so much fun and easy to create a healthy concoction that takes like 2 minutes and then I’m on the go. I live between 2 major cities and I’m always on the road and I realize this could really be something I can stick with. It’s easy, quick, and most importantly, super healthy. I have to share some smoothie recipes that I really love!
