Fruit & Veggie Smoothie Bracelet

It's not uncommon for things in my life to become represented in pieces of jewelry.

I've been sort of obsessed with my NutriBullet high speed blender/whole food smoothie maker. I continue to learn wonderful things about the health benefits of organic fruits and veggies. Things I never knew.

Why didn't I know that fruits and veggies are medicine? I've done every diet in the book, read my fair share of health and nutrition books and magazines, but for some reason it never sunk in that lemon can help remove toxins from your body, etc. 

Reading about the amazing benefits of apples blew my mind. It never seemed to sink in before.

Here's the scoop: In addition to vitamins B and C, the phytonutrients and antioxidants in apples may help reduce the risk of developing cancer, hypertension, diabetes, and heart disease. 

There is also growing evidence that apples can potentially improve neurological health, prevent dementia, reduce risk of stroke, lower levels of bad cholesterol, ward off breast cancer. Wow! 

Definitely worthy of an obsession!!!!!!!

So, I ordered sparkly beads in color of bicones I thought would represent my nutribullet creations well!!

Do you use a Nutribullet? If so, please take a moment to leave your favorite smoothie recipe! :)
