I can’t claim to be in favor of New Year, New You intentions – they often make us feel bad about ourselves as we fail to turn them into action or noticeable transformations. While I prefer a more measured approach to my overall well-being, even sustainable efforts may succumb to the need for comfort over wellness during these cold, dark shorter days of winter. This year, I’m grateful to have found BlendJet® as it provides an easy way to stay focused on health. No matter who you are – intention-setter, intention-avoider, consistently wellness-centric – this one pound wonder can make a difference for you as well.
Balancing Foods – and Life
For me, BlendJet® is not a resolution but a revolution in nutrition. When I began working with Sarah Wragge Wellness several months ago, smoothies became vital – as 3pm mini meals (to ensure you don’t head to dinner ravenous), post workout fuel and even meal replacements. But a traditional blender is unbefitting to my carpool lifestyle. And, let’s face it, even at home blenders can be a hassle with as many parts to wash as ingredients used.
I turned to BlendJet® for its convenience but was pleasantly surprised by the power of the tiny transportable. The brand prides itself on its patented TurboJet® “game-changing technology that powers through anything in 20 seconds.” This go-getter can now rest on its laurels.
But having access to a nutritious snack is more than resourceful, it manages my overall well-being. Using BlendJet® to blend the right portion of fiber-rich carbs, proteins and heart healthy fat stabilizes my blood sugar. This is critical for heart health as well as taming sugar cravings and steadying mood.
Available in 19 styles – with the rechargeable base running the gamut from solids to tie-dye to Disney characters – this health helper weighs just over one pound, holds 20oz. (but can also accommodate a 32 oz. cup, available for $29.95) and features a 6-point stainless steel blade to maneuver the heartiest of ingredients. For me, that means spinach, almond butter and a few ice cubes alongside a medley of powders and liquids. Given the heft of my nutritionist’s smoothie recommendation, BlendJet® feels like the only portable large enough to withstand my needs. And with its rechargeable base and waterproof USB charging port, I am always ready.
4-8 oz. of plant-based milk
1-2 scoops of Chocolate Collagen Peptides Powder
1-2 tbs. nut butter
1-2 tbs. chia seeds
1 handful of leafy greens (spinach or kale)
To keep my blood sugar low, I go fruit-free
For even more convenience, the brand also offers its own concoctions. The Jetpack Protein Smoothie mix – which pairs with your milk of choice – provides 15 grams of plant-based protein, vitamins, minerals and antioxidants. The fiber-rich flavors are delicious and nutritious: Chocolate Peanut Butter Banana, Very Berry, Orange Mango Pineapple, Blueberry Acai, Peanut Butter Power Breakfast, Strawberry Banana ($3.99/packet; $23.94/6-pack variety).
There is also a non-protein Jetpack Smoothie, which can be paired with either water (for even more on-the-go) or milk, and a Latte Jetpack. Both offerings have six flavor varieties ($3.99/packet; $23.94/6-pack variety).
Whether you create from scratch – or concoct with a BlendJet® mix – you can put your health in your hands, taking control of your well-being. With its built-in measuring indicators and one-touch “tornado effect” blending, there is no better way to curb cravings and boost metabolism while feeling satiated with ample protein – to fuel your body and life.
