MBFW-NY S/S 15 – NUTRITION IN STYLE with NutriBullet PRO 900

_DSC1004HELLO to all of my radiant readers:

As I am in the middle of writing all of my new york fashion week reviews and posts I am reflecting on a few things

  • How great the week was
  • How I appreciate all of you
  • What lifestyle tips and questions I was asked during the week.

One that stood out in my mind was “Dara, how do you stay so energized throughout the week?” I always laugh at this question because to me the answer usually is “pure adrenaline”! Why, you ask? Well, with being invited and attending so many wonderful shows either on location or off location it leaves very little time to do much of anything, let alone eat! Thank goodness there are Smart Water bottles in the tents for us to guzzle all day long otherwise I think we’d all drop like flies! With that said, this season was a bit different for me. I was able to (as much as I possibly could) make the time to get the proper nutrition. I brought a snack or two with me to the tents and every morning before I would leave my hotel room I would make myself a smoothie in my NutriBullet PRO 900. It did the trick! I have a very limited diet due to food allergies and a few food restrictions so finding a product that will held keep me with feeling great and not hungry all the time is wonderful! NutriBullet PRO 900 was the perfect addition to my fashion week routine. Displaying NutriBullet-5-20-14-0058.jpg

This is what I would do – Dara’s Fashionable Apple Smoothie:

017

  1. wake up
  2. wash off an apple
  3. slice the apple into wedges taking out the core and seeds
  4. cut the wedges into smaller cubes
  5. add an individual snack cup of Muscleman’s apple sauce
  6. add ice (as desired)
  7. 1/4 cup of apple juice
  8. 1/4 cup of water
  9. blend till creamy and smooth
  10. either add on the handle attachment and lid for easy transporting or pour into your own cup
  11. drink away!

Yes, I know what you are thinking – it’s an all apple smoothie! Yes, it is however as the old saying goes “An apple a day keeps the doctor away!” But, for me this is the only fruit smoothie I can make – plus it is super easy to make especially when you are on the go or traveling. You can find apples pretty much anywhere. There are many variations to this that I sometime like to do. I add a little bit of vanilla ice cream, cinnamon and even green tea, too! Most of you can probably any smoothie your little hearts desire in the NutriBullet PRO 900. It comes with an extensive recipe and cook book with lots of different smoothie options, sauces and even soups! If you’re like me you will also make up your own smoothie recipes and get creative!

Another Smoothie Idea I concocted is the – Red Hot Runway:

  1. V8 Juice or tomato juice
  2. a few green olives
  3. hot sauce (as desired – optional)
  4. ice as desired
  5. blend till creamy and smooth
  6. either add on the handle attachment and lid for easy transporting or pour into your own cup
  7. drink away!

This drink is a virgin smoothie version of a Bloody Mary. Since V8 Juice is very healthy for you with all of its nutritional attributes from the multiple vegetables that are already included in the drink, there is no need to purchase them individually to make the smoothie from scratch. This is also great for those on the go and traveling. If you are not an olive person (I live for olives) you can leave them out. I like to add them in. It gives the smoothie a bit of a salty kick that contrasts well with the hot sauce and V8!

I wish I had photos of all of the smoothies I made in my hotel room each morning but unfortunately technology inst always the greatest thing. (my photos all got corrupted as I downloaded them) But the good news is I will be making a few videos to show you all how it’s done – or how I like to “smoothie”!

NutriBullet PRO 900 Series is available at the NutriLiving online store, Macy’s, Bed Bath & Beyond, Target, Kohl’s, Wal-Mart and other select retail locations. This is with out a doubt a must have for anyone who travels, likes to stay healthy when on the go, your office, dorm rooms, and fashion week goers worldwide!!
