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!
After searching for a long time for a the right protein shake, I found Nutracelle. It's the only one that not exacerbate my chronic migraines (because there's no chemical additives) and help me stay healthy and help me manage the sides effects of my medication.
The flavors are yummy (my favorite one is Salted caramel but all the flavors are amazing), the price is affordable and the quality is amazing. Plus, it's proudly Canadian 😀
I love the vitamins, they are so tasty. I am going to start making the protein snacks tomorrow
I honestly cant live without my nutralean! I am grateful that this product has helped me lose weight and maintain it for years! Thank you! ❤
with socail distancin, no school, "comfort food" at your reach it's hard to keep a strickt routine. YOu know you are domg something right when your 2 teenage kids are asking you for a Strawberry Nutralean protein "icecream". THANK YOU, NUTRACELLE
I’ve been a fan of the Nutralean protein powder for a long time and thought I’d try out the vitamin gummies and they are equally as great! I highly recommend both products!
A nice "clean" protein powder carefully made in Canada. The ingredient list is short ...... the taste is great. Helps me keep to my low Potassium diet. Nut free allowed me to share it with my 30 something son. You won't go wrong!
I ordered both nutravegan chocolate and vanilla, both so good. I'm definitely going to try nutralean line next!
Great product. Delicious, thank you
I ordered the vanilla, chocolate dream & strawberry. They are so good mixed with frozen avocado or berries, I find it masks the stevia aftertaste. I tried vanilla first with just unsweetened coconut milk and noticed the stevia instantly, I can't taste it when I blend with berries. I feel satisfied and don't feel like I am starving which has happened with other protein powders. It also helps satisfy the sweet tooth.
Very smooth and creamy shake. I use frozen berries and unsweetened almond milk. No clumps delish.
I find all is good except the Salted Carmel , I love the nutra bites
I'm loving my first purchases so far. I got the strawberry and the salted caramel. They blend so well with my almond or coconut milk. I am very pleased. Would highly recommend!
Best vegan protein powder I've tried. Smooth and creamy. Great addition to my cupboard. Lo e it with frozen fruit.
I've tried a lot of protein powders, but this is awesome. I have food allergies and lots of protein powders are not safe for me. This is the yummiest.
I absolutely love the product! Not too sweet and so smooth !
I have been searching for a long time for a dairy free protein powder that tastes good. I had not found anything I loved until now! The Nutravegan products are delicious, have a great consistency, are filling and best of all don’t hurt my belly at all! I will continue to be a customer for a long time coming.
Nutracelle tastes amazing! It’s not chalky and doesn’t have a bad aftertaste like a lot of other protein products. I make the best chocolate banana smoothie for breakfast every morning and put two scoops of my protein powder in it!
I love these powders. The flavours are exceptional and the probiotic fibre really makes a difference in satiety. I highly recommend this brand.
I love how smooth the shake is in just the shaker! I crave them and can’t wait to drink it!!!
My husband and I have been following a lowcarb/keto lifestyle for the past 5 months. We were so excited to finally find a sugar free vitamin gummies! Not only do they taste great, they are keto friendly 😊 highly recommend!
I absolutely love, love, love this product. They taste great, are good for you, and are an easy part of my daily routine. My only criticism is that I wish they were a candy that I could eat by the handful instead of only 2 per day!!
This Nutracelle protein powder is our favourite! We love adding it to our smoothies! Highly recommend this protein powder!!
It’s a must have for me! Salted caramel and strawberry are my faves
I was introduced to this by a friend...i truly love the flavors of the protein powder and the endless ways ro use it. I know have started a friend on it and sbsolutely loves it
Nutracelle's protein powder is by far the best purchase I have ever made! I have tried several protein powders in the past, and they never worked for me. Nutracelle's powder tastes great, is great for cooking/baking, and is so easy on my stomach! I will never use anything else.
I couldn't get these on Amazon last month and it said it didn't know when or if they would get them again. Whew, I see they're back. These are the best, however they taste like candy...a really good candy and so you need to make a sugar free candy version we can just eat, lol.
I love the shaker! It’s convenient, really helps mix the powder with my favorite milk, and is so durable. Highly recommend!
Tastes great and keeps me feeling full for hours.
I have just tried the Nutravegan and fell in love with it! Added some ice, water and shook. It feels so smooth and not gritty/chalky!! Thank you Nutracelle!!!
I bought the family pack including 3 flavours Nutracelle, 2 tubs of Gummies and 4 packs of Protein Bites. Very pleased with everything. Lost 8 lbs in 2 weeks making shakes 2 times a day. Very tasty and we do not miss the sweets.😊
We like that they hold a good amount, we can make our breakfast shake and go about our business on the Resort, taking a sip now and then. Nice design and easy to clean.
I workout everyday and I found it hard to get all the proteins that I need. For the last 5 years, I've been searching for a protein shake that suits me well. Sadly, all the proteins shake I tried got "additives" in it that exacerbate my migraines. Then I found Nutracelle. Natural ingredients and nothing "not needed" in it. Plus, it's yummy and affordable. Never got a migraine because I drink it. Thank you Nutracelle, I love it so much!
New! Vitamin Gummies - Sugar Free
