Government guild line state that we should have five portion of fruit and veg a day. But did you know it was actually meant to be around eight portions of fruit and veg through the initial recommendations, however it was thought that eight portions was not achievable by most people and was then lowered to five. With that in mind i decided to take up juicing or pulverizing and this bring me to this kitchen gizmo. The Nutri Ninja is one of the latest food processors that are on the market that can extract micro nutrients by pulverizing everything so that its easy to absorb into you body. So £100 later, hear it is…
Now just to be clear i don’t work or have any loyalty to selling this product. This review is purely my own experience of the machine. With that said i have list the good points and some of the bad points about it.
1) Fast to clean, after a blend you just rinse it under the tap and its clean.
2) I typically have about 3 a day and its dead easy to use, just throw the fruit and veg,seeds in with a bit of water of juice and turn it on. It breaks everything up and ready for drinking.
3) It been great to use up a lot of left over veg that been sitting at the back of the fridge.
4) I haven’t snacked much since i got the Nutri ninja as i tend to just make a shake to satisfy any cravings.
5) On average i would eat around have about 8-10 portion of fruit and veg per day. My first breakfast blend will typically be a a mix of fruits, kale,spinach, lind seed, black sesame seed, chia seed, walnuts and fresh juice. Lunchtime would typically be a veg based blend with carrots, celery, cucumber, tomatoes, ginger and mint and some frozen berries for for flavour. Evening would be a mix of any other fruit and veg that i havent had that day.
6) I can take a mix some Chinese herbs in that benefit my body with the tastes as its masked by the fruits generally.
7) Digestion has been very good…enough said lol
1) The machine is rather loud. you really cant use it at night when people are sleeping as the sound and vibrations would travel.
2) Having used it for the last 3 weeks i noticed that the blades are not as sharp. With that in mind i have noticed that the seeds are not always broken up. But i can put up with that, as the majority is well broken up.
3) Some mixes of ingredients just don’t look very appealing to drink. My blends often come out with a brown or moldy green, but it does taste nice though. I have now found ways to change the colour of the blends, but requires a bit of experimentation.
All in all, i would say that it has been a very good product. I haven’t been really using it for weight loss but purely to get more portions of fruit and veg into my diet. The Nutri Ninja has definitely enabled that to happen. I’m very satisfied with it and will continue to use it. If i have to rate it ill would say 9/10 .
