My name is Michelle.
I am a wife and a mother of 2 amazing children. I work 4 part-time jobs – 1 of which is with Nutracelle in customer service. I enjoy my daily cup of coffee with 2 scoops of Chocolate Nutralean, which for me is odd since I usually don’t care for chocolate.
Yikes! I have a hard time saying that because it makes me sound selfish and I feel that I am not a selfish person. “Did what?” you may ask. Join me on a little journey.
As a preteen, I was diagnosed with Epilepsy and began having grand mal seizures. The only medication that controlled this for me caused weight gain. As a teen, I found this very hard to deal with. It seemed to be so much out of my control too. I could always lose a little weight, but soon it would creep back. This went on for close to 15 years.
Christmas of 2013, I knew something had to change. I was reading a story with my then 7-year-old son. He wanted to act out the story with me. He said I should be the cow. When I asked him why, he replied, “Because you are kind of big like a cow”. I knew in my heart he meant nothing hurtful by what he said, but still, my heart sank. I wasn’t the mom I wanted to be. I couldn’t run and play with him and his sister – I was always tired.
I knew it wouldn’t be easy and that I couldn’t abuse this tool I was given. It seemed far too easy for just over 2 years. Weight came off easy and was super easy to maintain.
This last one has been a hard one for our family. My husband has had a shortage of work this year – not for a lack of trying. This has put more stress on me to make sure the bills and mortgage and other necessities get taken care of. I’ve had to pick up more casual hours at the group home I work at and starting a 4th job only added to the stress of him not working. Not only that, but everyone else and their needs came before my own. I was feeling overworked, under-appreciated and stressed. How do I deal with stress? Well, I’m a stress eater.
Every morning began with good intentions – my coffee and Nutracelle. Somehow by the afternoon, though, I’d be reaching for a couple chips with the phone call that he didn’t get that job he interviewed for and the rest of the evening would spiral from there. I ended up gaining weight over summer and could feel my anxiety and depression worsen.
I needed something to change. I needed to do something for my family. Most of all, I needed to do something for me.
After having a discussion with my husband one night about all that was going on with me, I expressed interest in getting some help to get active. So, for our anniversary, he bought me this coaching package from Nutracelle! Super romantic, hey?! When I clicked checkout, I started to feel nervous. Wasn’t sure how the whole training-from-a-distance thing would go.
I have lost some weight and inches are coming off. Small things – like putting on a jacket that felt a little too tight and now is comfortable has been great for me! I have noticed that my anxiety and depression have been getting better over the last week. I feel happier to finally be doing something for myself!
I start my day with time by myself – running and listening to music or a podcast with a positive message to help me start my day. I live in a small community that does not have a gym. Blair (the certified trainer from the Women’s Training Package) has been great at putting together workouts that I can do at home. I LOVE it! I get daily check-ins and can message him anytime with questions or concerns that I may have. I think that this is another great product that Nutracelle offers and am so glad I purchased it.
I am excited to see the changes that are to come yet. I am so happy I decided to do this for myself!
If you're interested, check out the coaching page found here. I can't recommend it enough.
I'm looking forward to writing another blog next month to update you all on my progress again.
Here's the most recent photo of myself and my family:
Stay tuned for more!

I was slightly skeptic that I wouldn't like this as I haven't found a protein powder that I enjoy. It's always too gritty and I can't stomach it, however this one was not the case. It blends smooth and it's so delicious. I'll definitely be buying this again. And look forward to trying some other items out. As a bonus it's from my home province of PEI. Each day I add a scoop of Vanilla to my smoothie which consists of dragon fruit, pineapple, coconut, and a bit of orange juice and it's a delight each time!
I've never been one to take vitamins - as much as I should! However, now that Nutracelle has their sugar-free multivitamins I actually look forward to it! I've been taking these for a week straight already and I LOVE them. They taste like candy, with no chemical flavor AT all.
I love starting my day with a Nutralean shake that tastes great and makes me feel full for hours. My favorite flavor is Chocolate Dream, it is delicious.
I was really impressed with how good the salted caramel tasted and how good the product is for you!! I will be getting this for awhile and looking forward to trying more flavours!!
My son and I are really enjoying the Nutralean. I love the Salted Caramel and Coffee Mocha. Strawberry is his favorite.
Totally delicious and beat part guilt free!!
Love this product, down 12 pounds and feeling great!
Best protein powder ever! Bowels working so much better. So great to get the prebiotic fiber
I like the taste of the Nutrabites! I didn’t at first, plus they arrived all clumped together (but apparently that is rectified ).
Heating them for eight seconds (per bite) in the microwave makes them taste even better.
Love the amazing recipes !
The Nutrabites are very filling and taste delicious! A sweet treat without the guilt.
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! ♥
