NutriBullet Recipes for the Control of Diabetes

NutriBullet is a kitchen gadget which is used to pulverize vegetables, fruits, seeds, and nuts. Some people refer to it as an “extractor” instead of a juicer or a blender. This may be so because of the actions of the blades which comes with a lot of power and crushes things until it becomes a liquid or soft consistency. It is, therefore, a good gadget to make a lovely smoothie.

NutriBulletThe NutriBullet recipes are popular today for several reasons. They are nutritious and are being used as part of a variety of strategies to control and eliminate a number of illnesses, to which diabetes is no exception.

It is a smart way to get more fruits, vegetables, nuts, and seeds into your diet. Using the NutriBullet to make a nutritious meal is easy to do and cleaning up after your delicious, nutritious meal is a breeze.

Vitamin and Mineral Storehouse

The beauty with any NutriBullet drink/smoothie is that they are packed with vitamins and minerals and can be a great “pick me up” in the mornings. I will share with you how easy it is to use NutriBullet recipes for the control of diabetes and other illnesses/diseases.

They are equally satisfying after a hard day work, and can be used to help us to have a good night rest dependent on the ingredients used. Again, they are packed with vitamins and minerals to continue the healing process, whilst we sleep, in preparation to start the ball rolling the next day.

Easy Does It

A lot of us complain about not having enough time to make healthy meals at home, especially in the mornings. There is always this mad rush to get the children out of the house and beat the morning traffic to get to work.

Children going to school.

The good news is that the NutriBullet drinks are super easy to prepare. Making a NutriBullet drink entails washing and peeling some fruits, washing and adding some vegetables, some nuts, and seeds if you so desire, peanut butter and oats are also popular ingredients. After this, the only thing needed is some liquid. I like to use coconut water, or coconut milk and sometimes just plain spring water.

More Vegetables in the Mornings-Sneak It In

Below I will share with you some of the smoothie recipes I love to make to start my day. Smoothies, for me, is an easy way to sneak more fruits and vegetables into my diet.

Outside of steamed callaloo and cabbage, I find it difficult to consume vegetables in the mornings. Smoothies allow me to have carrots, tomatoes, lettuce, kale and cucumber in the mornings as well.

Help! Chewing has Become Difficult!Figure sick

Do you have an older person at home who is probably ill and finding it difficult to chew? Yes, I know that this can be painful as you ponder what to prepare for them to “eat.” They are obviously tired of soup and porridge, and, most importantly, you need to find a way for them to “eat” their fruits.

Here comes the help! The NutriBullet can be used to crush the fruits so that they will be able to drink pure fruit juice diluted with a little coconut or spring water. Sounds good to you? It gets better. Yes, it does.

Nuts and Seeds, even if my Teeth are Missing

I am sure you crossed nuts and seeds off their list. How can you give them peanuts when they can’t chew irish Broken Peanutpotatoes? The NutriBullet makes this possible. Especially if your loved one is diabetic and having problems chewing. Peanuts are good to help in the fight to control diabetes.

Now you can blend some peanuts in the smoothies you make with the NutriBullet. I know, you are happy. I am too because this is exciting news. You can also blend the pumpkin seeds and flax seeds they loved when they were healthier.

Moderation is the Key

I said it in previous articles that juicing is not ideal for diabetics. We can have some juice, but it is better if we make them at home so we know the ingredients and can exercise caution where other ingredients are concerned. What then is my position on smoothies and why am I writing about them?

Hypocrisy is not the order of the day in my books. Yes, I am diabetic, and yes I own and love using my NutriBullet. However, if you look at my recipes, they contain fewer fruits and peanut butter than you may see in other recipes. That is so because I am using moderation as the key.

We should bear in mind that some people have elevated blood glucose readings when they eat too much of certain fruits. I am not one of those persons for the most parts, but I still exercise caution in my consumption of food, including fruits. I am still observing my mango intake and the effect on my blood glucose.

Is More the Best?

The point is you need to watch your consumption of fruits and vegetables when making smoothies. More is not always better. I also have a smoothie to replace a meal, not as an addition to a meal. This is what is working for me and I am sharing my journey and encouraging you to do your experiments and see what works for you.

Our aim is to eat foods, in quantities which will not spike our blood sugar well beyond the normal range. The last thing we would like is to control our blood glucose and then gain weight. Eventually, you may see a return to diabetes. I am encouraging a lifestyle change to eliminate or at least control diabetes and reap the bonuses of other health benefits, including weight loss and normal blood pressure.

    Hi Josephine,
    Thanks for sharing these recipes. I have been juicing for about a year now and I have certainly seen the difference it has made in my health. I plan to try some of the recipes you have shared especially your mom’s favorite. Intrigued about using coconut water instead of just water.

    Grateful,
    Dr. Holder.
