Alice's Nutribullet!
0

1 post in this topic

Had I not caught that infomercial.....Nutribullet is all they say and much more, especially for a gluten-free cooking mom or dad! Not only have I been making the best "Nutri" drinks This thing does a whole host of other things. I haven't been on here much (Pinterest addict!) but I really have to share. It is NOT like their Magic Bullet...300 watts more power.

Flour: I have a multitudes of appliances and I have never gotten the results with them as i have with my Nutribullet. I can't say enough good stuff about this thing. It feels really good to grind your own flours, you can control every aspect. And yes, this is the finest grind I have ever been able to do! Flax is amazing.

"Nutriblast": This is a term they coined and it fits really good. Most products are hyped really well but this machine actually lives up to it's claims. 1/2 greens, 1/2 fruit and one "blast"(or 2 or 3!). I got hulled hemp seed at Costco, um...have you ever looked at the nutrition values on the side of a package of hemp seed? I am blown away. My dogs love it. It's pricy but not any more than a good piece of meat and it lasts far longer!

Soup: I coined "Soup in 5!" You throw stuff, whatever you have, into this thing, rough chop (10 seconds) toss in a pan and Soup in 5! Potatoes whirled thru here are amazing and cook so fast and thicken so well!

You can grind coffee and WASH it in between French Vanilla and French Roast. Can't do that with a coffee grinder. Yes, you wash/rinse in between because I swear, you won't be able to put it down! My Vita-mix took 10 minutes to clean well, this takes 10 seconds!

Nut Milk: WHERE have I been? If for only this reason you buy one of these things this is it! We have been doing w/o non-dairy for quite awhile. Well, those days are over! You cannot imagine how good your own Almond milk is in this thing. I tried making it in a blender, yuck is what my kids said. Wow is what they say now. Got the almonds at Costco, used one heaping cup, blanched em, soaked em for 12-18 hours(they sprout!)in the fridge, whirled em good in the blender, drained em thru a LARGE coffee filter in a screen colander, and let me tell you, I had to add 3 cups of water it was so think, so creamy, so good, NO SEPARATION, WHAT-SO-EVER!! Water and almonds, no binders, fillers, salt, sugar, nothing but my own two hands and my Nutribullet. Wait till you see the cream cheese left over! Made rice with it!! WOW! Cashews... oh, my! The cream cheese THEY make is beyond description! We finally have creamy back in our house! You will have a cup or so of this stuff and it's better than any cheese I have ever had. I aim to learn more about the left-over pulp! :)

If I ever felt like the Red Hen, it's now!

This thing is too good to be true and I aim to get the word out. Next week I am taking it to Water Aerobics so I can show them what it can do. Forget the "blender", uses too much stuff (things I was going to throw away FILL this blender) hard to clean(you drink out of the container you make it in, RINSE the blade and you are done!)and most everything goes in here! I never peel anything, not mango, nothing. I do remove seeds but not from grapes! I made a drink with raw beets, 1 zuc, 1 cucumber and some fruit, 1/4 cup flax, the kids never knew what was it it! It was so beautiful! It's ground so fine, it's like per-digested. I bet it FLY'S into your system?

Anyone trying to heal their gut should have one of these!

You can make dried fruit cookies in a flash! Whirl the dried fruit, nuts, seeds, press it in a pan, let it "set" and cut into bars....forget buying them!

Oh ya, Bed, Bath & Beyond, $80 with a 20% coupon.

    • Any place you know of to find more info? Seems like I am still in so much pain/bloat, I am not even sure if I would pick the right 5 foods!
    • Don't freak out worrying about other maladies yet. You would be absolutely amazed at the things that can/will resolve on the gluten free diet. Some take longer than others -- neurological seem to take the longest for most people but really, I guarantee, there will be things you had no idea or expectation of resolving will. There were tons for me and then there were things I sort of "woke up one day" & said, "hey, that's gone and that & that & that". Other, larger things had taken my attention so I hadn't paid attention to the smaller things until...... On the other hand, not everything is related to celiac but I bet you wouldn't find a handful of celiacs who didn't say something very similar to what I said above. Yes, thyroid problems are common with celiac but I'll also tell you there are/have been people on here who were hypothyroid before dx but after being gluten-free for a while they actually went back to normal thyroid numbers. My husband is one (yes, we both are celiac - it happens). He was on synthroid for 20 years or more. Guess what? He's not on it anymore. We've had his thyroid panel done several times since about a year gluten-free & he is no longer hypothyroid. 
    • Yes please, that'd be awesome Having a fun time trying to reply on my phone due to broken screen but will be back on tomorrow after results of doctor appointment to get to the bottom of why they've given me seemingly wrong advice re: next steps. Yup I'll admit to pity, anger, frustration and outright fear, been through the mill of emotions in this first week that's for sure. One thing before I go for that; back when I was self-diagnosing I wanted a full thyroid panel (T3, T4 etc.) and also ESR & CRP checks for vasculitis and similar maladies. Now it seems from my reading they can often follow celiac so my worry level of those has gone up a notch, more blood tests ahoy it seems? Main reason for worrying about those is the nearly constant tight / tender head I have at the moment. Top and sides of scalp. Could be the stress tensing the shoulders and occipital muscles at back of head but after the celiac diagnosis being missed I'm fearful of anything else being missed. Did anyone else have this tight head feeling at the start? Feels like the skin is being pulled inwards, sometimes goes down for a few minutes here and there and gets worse when sitting I think. I see the term "brain fog" a lot but luckily don't seem to have too much of that at present, this is more a physical sensation.
    • I don't have a lot of faith in the allergy testing naturalpaths do. I had them done, but really it wasn't very helpful. Foods that were okay on the blood work- I was still having obvious reactions to. Skin testing through an allergist didn't show up food allergies either. I agree the food elimination diet is a better way to go and doesn't cost a bunch of money. I did a whole 30 diet a while back that could have been helpful if the foods I reacted to were corn, dairy,  soy, grains and sugar- but I react to more than that.  I do need to do a major elimination diet- just haven't gotten up the willpower yet.   
    • Quick search gave too many responses to TGI Fridays but none to TGI Fridays Buns (or similar) so... I was talking with my sister-in-law (Gluten Intolerant) and she spoke highly of a pre-packaged bun from Fridays. I was hesitant but she gave me one (apparently you can buy them from the restaurant?) and I tried it. Since I'm slow to react I won't know about gluten for a bit but I can definitely say it is the closest to "real" I've had in years! Spongy, doesn't crumble while eating a sandwich and tastes good. Color me impressed! I tried to determine the manufacturer or if Fridays actually makes them but I can't locate anything worth pursuing. Anyone have information on this? Thanks in advance.
