Full disclosure: I have always loved breakfast. There has never been an issue there. I love fry-ups, adore a yoghurt-granola-fruit bowl, and I would positively kill for a good Eggs Florentine.
The issue for me has always been eating these in the morning. Breakfast for lunch? Yes. Breakfast for dinner? Definitely. Sunday brunch? Always. But anybody who knows me will tell you that I'm constantly late for everything I do. I consider myself deserving of praise if I show up to something within five minutes of the agreed time -- that is early to me. Even for work, I'm rarely there more than a minute before the start of my shift (not my best quality I'm sure!)
All of this means that I never give myself time in the mornings to make myself breakfast, which I know is bad, but it's also something I've never really been all that pushed about.
This is one of the major changes that getting a NutriBullet has made in my life. I got myself one of these a little over a week ago, and I honestly cannot rave enough about it. I have had one or two smoothies a day since I bought it, and I have never eaten less snacks in my life. I am also pretty sure that my fruit consumption is at an all-time high.
I've actually owned a traditional jug blender for a few years, but I only ever use it now when making pancakes (sidenote, if you're still making pancakes in a mixing bowl, stop that right now you timewaster). The problem with the jug variety for me is the clean-up. I have yet to own a (functional) dishwasher, so all my washing-up is by hand, and good grief is it difficult to clean down by the blades in one of those things. The NutriBullet blade is not stuck at the bottom of a jug, making it more of a rinse-and-go job, which suits me down to the ground. Also, you don't have to pour it into a glass to drink it. Double cleaning win.
I'll definitely be sharing recipes as time goes on -- it's a bit of a learning curve, but I'm making delicious progress -- but for now I'll just entice with pictures.
Seriously, I recommend this thing to everyone.
