Our feature guest on the blog is our very own Jeff. If you've ever had your referral bonuses paid out, you've probably communicated with him (though the list of things he handles is much, much longer than that!). Jeff is our finance manager here at Nutracelle, and we're so lucky to have him. Not only is he passionate about his job, numbers, and finding the best way for us to save money (so we can spend it on you!), but he's also passionate about his Nutracelle.
I decided to do this blog a little differently, so we've set it up as an interview! Take a look and let us know what you think!
(This is Jeff and I! Aren't we adorable?!)
Growing up I was a very happy child. I had everything I wanted, which was lots of video games! I would go home and just play some Mario or Zelda. My family is a very close knit family; my grandmother lives next door and I'd spend many nights over there watching tv together. If I wasn't there, you'd find me talking to my mom about Star Trek (yes I am a proud Trekkie ha-ha). I was the definition of a mommy's boy. It wasn't until I was a young adult that I started to lose confidence.
Being underweight especially through Grade 9 to Grade 12 was very difficult, because when I was growing up if you were a skinny boy who wasn't into sports you weren't popular. I was more into my video games and books and studying. I was one of those kids that loved school but hating going to school because I was teased so much. Thinking back, Grade 9 is my earliest memory of where I lost a lot of my confidence as a kid.
(This is Jeff before Nutracelle!)
I happened to be one of the tallest boys in school, being 6 ft 1 and only weighing 125 pounds. I was that tall lanky boy with acne who was beyond awkward and introverted. I thankfully had a close circle of friends that I stuck to like glue to help me through those years.
When I first starting working at Nutracelle I was going in to begin my first accounting job after graduating. I didn't know anything about the importance of a healthy gut flora, or how beneficial protein was for your body. I went in completely clueless! Little did I know how much Nutracelle was going to help me with my self-esteem.
That very first time I tasted Nutracelle I was not expecting how yummy, how filling it would be or how good it would smell! You hear those horror stories about how gross protein shakes can be, where you have to plug your nose and swallow it quickly. NOT NUTRACELLE! It blew my mind! It tasted SO good, and it was incredibly smooth! I have been using Nutracelle now for almost 2.5 years and I still can't get over how many different ways you can use your product.
At first I didn't think Nutracelle could do anything for me. When I was asked at first what Nutracelle was, my very narrow definition was it could help you lose weight. I personally didn't need to lose weight - I was too skinny as it was. So why would I want to use this product? Well, little did I know that if I changed up a few things and started eating differently, Nutracelle would help me reach a healthier weight and just make me feel better about myself!
(This is Jeff AFTER Nutracelle!)
I will always be an introvert and want to avoid people as much as possible ha-ha , but has Nutracelle helped me gain confidence? The answer is 100% YES! I am not ashamed of my body anymore. I am not afraid of summer where I have to show my arms. That was one of the things I hated about summer - wearing a t-shirts and shorts. I was so self-conscious of my small wrists, my small legs and my chest area. I am not ashamed of those parts of my body now because this is the only body I will ever have and with Nutracelle I have learned to love every inch of myself!
(Looking good & feeling good! Loving my new confidence - Jeff)
My favourite thing about my job is seeing the success stories from our customers. I love seeing everyone's before and after photos or hearing about someone's win for that day because it makes me proud to be a part of a company that is doing good in the world.
My favourite shake is 1 scoop Vanilla Cream, 1 Scoop Coffee Mocha added to heavy cream, water and ice. I have this almost daily, and if I'm lucky -- my partner Josh will make it for me before I head to work!
Oh this is a hard one, I love so many of them! I'm going to have to go with our Zucchini Noodles recipe combined with our Meaty Pasta Sauce recipe! I can't imagine ever going back to plain 'ol spaghetti. Nutracelle's healthier version not only tastes better, but it keeps me full for way longer thanks to our Natural Nutralean.
A big thank you to Jeff for sharing his story and introducing us to his struggles of being under-weight. His story is one of many; proof that Nutracelle's versatility extends much further than just the ability to shake, bake, or blend. We're all so proud to be a part of a company that's changing lives and helping people build confidence.
Thanks for reading everyone,
Tracy & Jeff

Nutralean is the best protein powder on the market. The salted caramel is a great addition to the lineup.
I am so happy to finally be able to use a protein powder that I can use in my blender worry free due to my children's food allergies. I haven't purchased any since we found out our kids had food allergies due to the allergen labels on them. Nutracelle, also tastes better than all the one's I've used in the past. It actually does keep me full for hours. Such a great product!
After using this protein powder for a while. I'm feeling better than I have in a very long time. No reflux or upset tummy.Plus the fact it makes it alot easier to get my daily protein in each day. I really love these shakes and the fact I can also add it to things I'm cooking.Thank you so much for everything.Big Hug
They are delicious & satisfying
Very tasty snacks with a good dose of protein. I especially like the mint ones.
The Nutralean is, as always, delicious and super versatile. Highly recommend for anyone wishing to add protein to their diet without the added rubbish that other brands can contain.
I LOVE IT!!! I like the taste and that I can mix it with water or whatever types of milks I like. It mixes up really well no clumps, no yucky after taste. I also plan to cook with it soon.
They were great tasting, really enjoyed them especially the mint chocolate .would like to see better packaging but other than that I would buy them again :)
These are really delicious!
The product does what it says. The protein is a little thick with small particles in the mix. If you can get past this, it's for you.
I just love Nuracelle so much. I've shared it with family and friends. I've even made things with it and my family loved them.My first order was the best thing I had ever done.my boyfriend loves it too. I thank you for all you so to make things better for all of us that love it.it has changed my and my belief in protein powders. You really have renewed my faith smile I love everyone of them I have tried.thank you again so much ❤
I love both flavors of the nutrabites! They leave me nice and full and I don't go looking to snack any further after I've snacked on a nutrabite!
I am a HUGE fan of mint chocolate and even though I kicked sugar a long time ago I still find the cravings can be so bad sometimes! This is where my new nutrabites have become a game changer. Usually I’d make a nutracelle mug cake or some kind of cheesecake bite but some days more cooking is the absolute last thing I want to do. Now I just grab one or two (sometimes three 🤭) of my mint chocolate nutrabites and I am 100% satisfied and 100% guilt free!!
I love my coffee mocha!!!
I have it ice cold or as a hot frothy drink. Makes my day and keeps me full for a few hours .
It's great for these hot days and don't really feel like eating.
I LOVE my nutrabites!! After trying tons of gross protein bars that were packed with chemicals, it's SO nice to be able to enjoy a legitimately delicious snack that's low cal, zero carb, AND naturally sweetened.
Loved the Coffee Mocha sample. Will definitely be in my next order
NUTRALEAN Prebiotic Protein Powder | Coffee Mocha
Love the chewy dense texture, crunchy bits, flavour & find them very filling. Chocolate mint isn't too minty, but just right. Chocolate chunk needs improvement as I've yet to find any chocolate chunks/chips no matter how small a bite I take.
These little guys are so yummy! Dense, chewy and super chocolatey, they are perfect for an afternoon snack or to kick a craving.
Ok seriously this is the best protein treat I’ve had. Yummy !!!
I had a bad first experience that I have already addressed with Jordan, my votes arrived all clumped together due to the heat. I love the protein powder but for the price of these nutrabites I am going to attempt to make my own using the recipe in the book.
These are absolutely delicious! I cannot get enough of them! I have to hide them so my son doesn’t eat them all on me.
Like the title says the mint balls are my favorite. I like the chocolate chunk but the taste of flax seed is very prominent in the chocolate one and im not a fan. Ill buy for sure again but only the mint one.
These bites taste insanely delicious! I am not usually fond of chocolate or any sweets at all, but these bites are definitely exceptional and my bias! I cannot choose which one is may favourite but love both flavours. I have them for breakfast, lunch and dessert! And what I love love about these little guys is that they are sugar free and no carbs! Never find protein bars at store that has no sugar and no carbs, will definitely get more!
I LOVE these protein bites! They're great for on the go or a quick snack. I have tried many protein bars in the past and wasn't happy at all with the taste and all of the unhealthy ingredients! These are so filling and help me stay on track with my healthy eating plan. I will be stocking up!
These protein bites are so tasty and filling. The whole family loves them. A great little treat to have on hand. The price is right aswell especially when comparing to other protein bars.These are the right size and dont have that weird chalky after taste. Very chocolatey tasting. FINALLY a protein bar I love...
I love love love the chocolate chunk... I wasn’t a fan of the mint ones but they’re OK... I would love to see you make a coconut flavor or vanilla 😋
I love the new bites!! I've tried both flavors the cchocolate chunk is my favorite. The chocolate mint is also so good, there is a nice subtle taste of mint and not the usual toothpaste flavor that can be expected from choco mint snacks. They are an easy grab and go snack for busy days. They keep me from caving into junk food cravings when I have them close by.
I've been keto for over three years now and until NutraBites, I hadn't been able to find a truly healthy, delicious snack that I didn't have to make with my own Nutralean - I'm SO excited that the NutraBites are here!! The Mint is hands-down my absolute favourite, some days I replace meals with 'em! They're chewy, dense, filling, AND have the perfect flavor. Chocolate Chunk is delicious too, but the mint is the show-stopper if you ask me! ♥
I just had my first tastes of the chocolate chunk and the chocolate mint Nutrabite and they are amazing. The chocolate chunk tastes like an Eatmore candy bar but is actually good for you, and the chocolate mint is my new favorite ( so long mint Areo bar).
No chemical aftertaste like all those protein bars on the market, and 0 sugar too! Nutracelle you have a winner.
I wasn't sure what to expect when I ordered these. but there SO SO GOOD! My kids ate half my first bag, so I have to hide them from now on. They are exactly what I need - really filling - like I had one with my coffee and I was full til lunch! They are really chewy and dense - and there is no aftertaste at all unlike lots of bars out there and I tried every bar you can name. These bites are by far - the best tasting bar yet. The only complaint I have is they came a little squished in the mail and they stuck together a bit, but they came apart easy and stayed apart after. But so worth it to have something that tastes good.
I’ve had more energy then I’ve ever had since starting nutracelle, the stomach pills I once was never able to get through a day without taking are now completely out of my life. I used to have a lot of complications from a emergency gallbladder surgery and nutracell has toned down or gotten rid of 99 percent of it. I’m actually never hungry but when I am nutracelle has so many amazing recipes to cook using nutralean that fills you up and makes you feel amazing.. as I’m writing this I’m celebrating a 40 pound weight loss and I’ve only been on nutracelle for 2.5 months!!! I love my nutralean life ♥️

I absolutely love the salted caramel. I’m very fussy when it comes to protein powders. I’m not sure what it is, but my stomach and taste buds are very fussy and most have bothered me in some way or they didn’t taste good at all. I’m so glad I finally found one I really love and the prebiotics really help my stomach.
I have Nutracelle everyday! I love how delicious and versatile it is! My kids love it too!
