Magic and Spinach. I never thought I’d say those two words together.

I thought I might be in trouble when Allison told me she was “torn” about my birthday gift, but even though it wasn’t something with a remote control (always my favorite), it was electronic. Yay! I am now the proud owner of a Nutri*Bullet, from the makers of the MagicBullet.

It was a little rocky at first though. I was genuinely intrigued by my new device as I pulled it out of the box, pleased by it’s aptly-named ammo shape. I listened while Allison described her buying decision process (she was victimized by an infomercial) and the health benefits, but then I heard mid-sentence, that my new toy was in collusion with Spinach – my most hated vegetable, tied with carrots.

At which point I began to whine quietly, but Allison continued, reassuring me that the television promised that you can’t taste the spinach at all, you only taste the fruit. Yeah, right! But because it was a gift and I didn’t want to seem ungrateful, I offered up a weak, “I’ll try”. In my mind, I’m seeing myself as the little girl who hates green beans from America’s Funniest Home Videos.

A Nutri*Blast Breakfast

But there’s good news. The television was right about the fruit being the star of the show. This morning we had spinach (honestly, you really don’t taste it), pear, pineapple and blueberries. Yum!

The plan is to replace our typical breakfast which has been toast or some bread product, or a processed microwave chemical laden cardboard thing, with a “nutri-blast”.
