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
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!
