It's been awhile since I've updated you on my journey, sorry about that, but things have been a bit hectic. Since writing my last blog (which you can read here), I've moved from Prince Edward Island, where our head office is located, to North Bay, Ontario, to live with my partner in crime, Justin.
In this blog I'll tell you about Justin's recent first experience with Nutralean and his hilarious reaction learning about the Natural! Plus, check out my latest Nutrarecipe below.
When preparing for the move to North Bay, one of the biggest fears I had was getting too off-track and losing the progress I've worked so hard to achieve. I knew I was headed into it with an incredibly supportive partner, as he's been friends with me since before I even started my journey. He's watched me transform and was inspired into his own transformation himself. Thirty pounds later and a lot of hard work, he's also ready to commit to a healthier lifestyle to maintain his results. Regardless of the support, I was still worried I would end up being a bad influence for myself (and him!). I know how I can get when I'm happy; I LOVE to celebrate with food! One thing leads to another, and suddenly I'm caught in a binge and I have to work really hard to get back out of it.
One of the first things I planned when I was organizing my move was the Nutracelle products I'd be bringing with me. My subscription date had just passed so luckily I had two fresh bags to bring with me.The product I brought with me was planned according to my use, I love having a daily Salted Caramel Nutralean shake - so I brought a full bag of that. The other product I use the most often is our Natural Nutralean! That may be a shock considering it's unflavored, but I'm telling you - my weight-loss game changed for the best when I started adding Natural Nutralean into everything I was cooking. Thankfully, it's gluten-free, nut-free and sugar-free so it's safe to add into everything!
I add it into every sauce I use (mayo, salad dressing, chili base, hot sauces, etc) and blend it into meats (ground beef, pork, turkey, chicken), plus as you're about to see -- I also coat my chicken chunks in it! Adding Natural to our meals has been both a money saver, and a great way to stay on track. You can check out tons of other recipes that feature Natural Nutralean here.
Plus, luckily I'm on a monthly subscription so I don't have to worry about running out! I just had to make sure I had enough product to last me until my next order.
Justin has been really excited about joining my Nutracelle lifestyle. He constantly heard me ranting and raving about the recipes I've created from afar when I lived in PEI, so I was pretty pumped to get to cook one of my Nutracelle recipes for him. One evening while he was hanging out with friends, I decided to surprise him with a healthy Nutracelle dinner. I chose Natural-dusted chicken pieces!
This is one of my all-time favourite recipes to showcase how incredible the Natural is. I love it because the coating is light, but a little crunchy and packed with flavor. Plus it couldn't be easier to make: throw your favourite spices in and stir to combine. The best part about this recipe is you can make it now and save it for later.
If you'll be using this recipe to make Nutracelle Nuggets, you can get started by preheating your oven to 400.
Combine Natural and spices in a bowl. Mix well with a fork or whisk until combined completely.
Dip chicken pieces in coating and coat well. Shake off excess.
Grease a parchment-lined pan, or oven-safe dish.
Bake for 15 minutes. Flip, bake for another 10 minutes.
Once your mixture is blended - you have a coating! You can section out some to use for your current recipe (guaranteed there'll be extras) and save the rest to use another time. I've coated pork chops, steaks, added the mixture into burger meat, and even blended it into some mayo for a dip!
To get the recipe for homemade Nutracelle nuggets, keep reading!
I had previously cubed three boneless, skinless chicken breasts. I went low-effort for Justin's first experience so I just dipped each chicken piece into the mixture and coated it well. Once I shook off the excess, I placed it onto my oven-safe bake-ware. (I usually use a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper)
I baked them for 15 minutes, flipped them, and baked them for another 10 minutes. I also had sliced my third chicken breast into strips for chicken twists, too.
The finished product was a pleasantly-spiced homemade nugget with a light coating.
I didn't give him the heads up that the chicken I made was coated in Natural. I waited until he had tried his first piece and told me he LOVED it. After his first taste, his eyebrows shot up and he said, "Oh, WOW!" I proudly told him it was coated in our Natural Nutralean and he was genuinely shocked and impressed. He couldn't believe that all I'd used was the Natural and spices from the cupboard! He described it as buttery, crunchy, spicy and savoury!
He loved the spice mixture (I cheated though, I used his favourites!) and said it was crazy how flavorful it was considering it was mixed with the Natural. Pictured above, I also whipped up a quick spicy mustard dip by combining sriracha and Heinz mustard.
He gave it a 10/10 and requested we have it again, SOON. We've now added it to our weekly meal plan!
Thanks for reading the update on my life and checking out my new recipe. I hope you love it as much as we did!
My next plan is to create something delicious with our Chocolate NutraVegan. Stay tuned for more kitchen adventures as I introduce Justin to more Nutracelle recipes. Let's see what his favourites are!

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
