Its good to be back again this week after a little "breather".
I was eavesdropping on a conversation in the lineup at Walmart earlier this week. Well, I shouldn’t say "eavesdropping”, but I couldn’t help but overhear the two ladies ahead of me lamenting over their issues with losing weight. The first lady was saying she felt deprived and constantly hungry due to the strict dietary demands she had placed on herself. She was struggling to stay within her limits of carbs and fats while the other lady was talking about how she was eating the foods she loved "in moderation".
I’ve used that phrase many times myself and it always worked, to a point. I have an addictive personality and I’ve always loved my junk food and sweet. I could never eat potato chips or chocolate in moderation. If the bag is opened, there is no need for a "chip clip" I wouldn’t be satisfied till I saw the bottom of the bag. The same with chocolate. Whether it be a regular sized bar or a box of assorted chocolates, I would be constantly eating them till the box was empty. I’m an "all or nothing" kind of girl when it comes to junk food, which is why I don’t keep it in my house anymore. I cannot have that kind of temptation around me. Having diabetes has taught me that I must steer clear of sugary foods and empty carbs, so why bother tempting myself? Out of sight, out of mind.
Eating in moderation though has much easier since starting Nutracelle. I replace two meals most every day, so I only plan food for one. I buy most of my meats in bulk and sort them out into single servings which are vacuum sealed and frozen. A typical meal for me consists of a protein and at least two veggies or a salad. I try and keep 1/3 of my plate protein and 2/3 vegetables. That seems to work well for me.
I have pretty much given up all wheat-based bread too. I make a gluten-free, low-carb loaf now from the Natural Nutralean and it completely satisfies me. I no longer crave the unhealthy white bread that wreaks havoc with my blood sugars.
The Cheesy Hamburger buns from Nutracelle also makes great sandwiches. Breakfast sandwiches are a luxury I thought I’d have to give up, but I now enjoy a healthy version thanks to Nutracelle.
Most people who know me know that I have a wicked sweet tooth, a whole mouthful of them to be completely honest. Thankfully Nutracelle is so low in sugar that I can still enjoy healthy sweets. I love to bake but I’ve had to reign myself in quite a bit in that regard, but only because I end up running out of product before my next shipment is due!
Life has become so much easier with Nutracelle in my corner. I’ve even made some unhealthy meals much healthier using the Natural Nutralean. I love mixing a scoop of the Natural with different spices to make a delicious crispy coating for fish and chicken. I’ve added it to all kinds of salad dressings to cut carbs and add fiber. There isn’t a recipe on the planet that you can’t make healthier with it! So, you can see why I love it so much... it helps me cut carbs and sugar which is great for my diabetes but it's also nut-free, which is great for those with nut allergies, gluten-free and high in prebiotic fiber and protein! It has literally taken the guesswork out of meal planning for me and I don’t even bother counting calories near as much as I used to. I no longer need to. And that, my friends, is total freedom to go live my best possible life! I might add that life has been pretty darn amazing lately.
Next week, I’m taking Nutracelle on the road with me. I’ll be travelling to visit family out east and my Nutralean is going with me. I’m attending my nieces baby shower next weekend and I’m sure there will be family dinners and such. Thankfully I have family members who use Nutracelle as well so I’m hoping we keep one another motivated to eat healthy amid all the festivities. I’ll be writing in my blog daily on how I’m doing being away from home and trying to stick with my plan. That’s going to be interesting for sure. You can read all about that next Wednesday!
This evening I’m going to be making a little snack for later. I’ve been dying to try the Low Carb Crispy Protein Chips for awhile now...I’m going to make mine a little spicy I think. Ha-ha! I love a little heat!
Here are a few photos so you can see just how easy it is to make a healthy snack!
And the final result - DELICIOUS!
Until next week, stay happy and healthy!

If you aren’t personally impacted by a nut-based allergy, there’s a high probability that you know someone who is. CEO & Founder, Melanie Wildman, gives you an inside look about why she created Nutracelle's allergen-friendly protein powder, why nut-free was one of the main priorities, and what it's like living with two children who have life-threatening allergies.
Love this flavor! Definitely appeals to my sweet tooth!
When I opened the bag I couldn't believe how GOOD it smells! It really smells just like fresh picked strawberries. And there are REAL Strawberry flecks in it!!! I watched Melanie's webinar and she said there were dried real strawberries in it, but I didn't realize she meant actual strawberries in it!! omg! I was kind of worried that it would taste like that nestle strawberry milk syrup but it doesn't - it just tastes like you are eating real strawberries. I love that it's not too sweet too. Anyway, if you are thinking about trying it and you like strawberries, you will love this one! I'm changing my monthly order now to make sure I get a bag every month along with the natural I use in everything I eat. I've lost about 7 pounds in the last two months and I just fit back into my favourite jeans again so I'm pumped to get to keep the weight off with strawberry now too! Thank you Nutracelle (and Melanie and Tracy!)
I absolutely love my new cookbook! Such a great selection of recipes and so far every single one I've made is fantastic! Thank you Melanie
The old nutralean was so good and the new blend is even better. Did not thing protein nutralean could get better man it’s better!! And my 2 & 1 year old know what I’m drinking and take my drink all the time for themselves. Love It!!!!
Absolutely loving the new formulas. They mix beautifully with water now... and they taste amazing!
I have trouble finding protein powder I don’t hate. I bought the cafe mocha and chocolate dream to try and didn’t expect to love it but I do!!! It was amazing! No weird after taste or texture. It also came with a shaker cup! I love that the ingredients are all things that I know. Plus it’s made in Canada!
Love these protein powders. Love the recipes...easy and quick!!!
So happy with my product. It’s a great product for anyone who’s on the go and always busy. I can rest easy knowing I’m getting good nutrients, that also taste yummy!
WOW!!! I’m sipping a Pumpkin Spice Smoothie as I’m typing this review. I received my order of the new formulas today and was excited to try it! I’m so impressed with the smooth, creamy consistency and the ease that it blends! 2 thumbs up from me!!!
This will hands down always be my go-to choice for anything protein related. I am glad it does not even taste like i am having a protein supplement. Since I don't enjoy eating meat often, this is the best alternative!
I love the taste! Even when you mix it with just water it has a creamy taste. You can do so much with the variety of flavours, you can not possibly get bored with Nutracelle!
Absolutely the best shake i have ever tried. Such great flavors... I love it! ☺
Product works when you follow guidelines. Always weighed at Doctor's office
believe it or not i've lost 51 lbs in 9 weeks. 30lbs to go...
My whole family loves Nutralean! Great taste and quick shipping.
Nutracelle products are great! Mixes amazingly! No grittiness like those other whey powders. Naturla Nutralean prebiotic protein for baking works awesome to make not just baking, but also make shakes and protein balls. The plain flavour allows incorporation into food without tasting that there is protein powder in it! I would recommend this product to those looking for a good quality protein powder!!
I can literally put it everywhere, whatever food i make i can add some natural protein in it, soup, bake goods, protein balls, pizza dough, etc.
Its amazing and so tasty
I have been in a stall between 208 and 202 for 5 months....in one week of being back on Nutracelle I am now in ONEDERLAND!
The taste and quality of nutracelle is absolutely unparalleled in the protein market. I recommend it to all my friends and family and having been using it daily for almost 2 years now. And still in love!
The Vanilla Cream is a great flavour added to any of my favourite smoothie recipes! Also makes a nice tasting pancake recipe.
Natural Nutralean from Nutracelle is the perfect protein to add to your food!! There is no added taste!! I made a zucchini meat pasta and added 2 scoops of Natural into my meat sauce!! Not only did it give me and my family all the protein we needed for dinner, but it cut back our portion sizes because we felt fuller faster! We have leftovers now for lunches!! I am so happy with my Nutracelle!
The Vanilla Mocha from Nutracelle is to die for!!! If you are like me and need my coffee every morning to function...then this is for you, as it will give you all the energy you need!! It even taste just like something I can get from Tim Horton's but this is good for you to drink every morning!! This is a must for coffee lovers!!!
The Chocolate Dream Protein from Nutracelle is soooo good. Chocolate is my all time favourite snack and with Nutracelle I am able to make these delicious desserts that are actually good for you! This is a must flavour to have!!
Meal plan is realistic and absolutely manageable. My coach checks in post every workout to see if there is any area I struggle in or if maybe the routine was too easy. He is quick at answering any questions I have and is very knowleageable with nutrition and what my body needs to eat and can explain it to me in various ways to make sure I understand as well. I have never worked with someone who is so passionate about fitness and proper nutrition as well as someone who is on top of everything. App is also very user-friendly; super easy to log everything in with a few click so that you dont have to do it urself on paper. Absolutely thrilled to be working with this team to better my fitness life. Highly recommend joining the team!
Nutracelle's Weight Loss kit has made such a huge impact on my life! I was a junk food junky before I found Nutracelle, and now I don't even think about it! It's been months since I've had any kind of junk and I've never felt better! More energy, tons of weight loss, and I've dropped 2 clothing sizes too!! AMAZING!
The weightloss kit has enabled me to wake up each morning knowing that I've got this!! For the first time in my life I've found something that allows me to feel full and satisfied and I can bake and cook with it to curb cravings I have for junky foods! In my first two months I'm down 15 pounds and dropping. Almost everyday there is a decrease on the scale I couldn't be happier!! I'm looking forward to continued success THANK YOU NUTRACELLE!
Nutracelle is the best product I have ever used for protein. All the flavours are fantastic, can't taste the protein. Since I started to take Nutracelle I have consistent energy throughout the day, it keeps me full and satisfied. My recovery from my workouts and running is fantastic. Recommend this product to anyone wanting to lose weight, athletes or to increase your protein intake daily.
Shakes are amazing. I just mix them with (sugar-free) milk and have no problem drinking them. Like at all! I even love the chocolate. I never ever love chocolate protein shakes haha
This Whey protein powder is the most amazing and the most delicious that I have ever tasted.....with it having 30 grams of protein and 10 grams of prebiotic fiber in one serving, not many meals have that so a great way to get that into your diet.....It mixes very well with no clumping and doesn't have the chalky after taste. I find that is is very easy on my stomach as I am lactose intolerant and I have no issues what so ever, it has actually helped with my stomach issues....Love that it mixes very well with just water! I also Love that it is so versatile that I am not just limited to the shakes, that I can use it in my baking and cooking . If I could give it 10 Stars I would.
I have been on nutracelle since January 2017 and absolutely love it!
I'm losing weight and inches, I have so much more energy and it makes me happy! Nutracelle is giving me my life back! #ilovenutracelle
Nutracelle has been the one product that has kept me on track with my weight loss journey. So easy to incorporate into my daily routine and it tastes amazing! Almost all of my immediate family all use and love Nutracelle too!
It tastes amazing & reduces cravings! I'm breastfeeding and was finding my cravings worse than when I was pregnant. I needed something to eat with my meals to help me stay full, be nutritious and curb cravings. This is it!
