Guest Post: Review of Nutri Ninja Pro

Buying the right blender is crucial if you enjoy getting in your daily servings of greens and fruit from delicious smoothies like I do.  I recently purchased the Nutri Ninja Pro after the unfortunate death of my Magic Bullet, and followed by hours of researching, comparing, and reading costumer reviews.   I needed a blender that was compact enough to fit in my small apartment kitchen that was reasonably priced, yet powerful enough to produce a smooth and even consistency in my smoothies.


What's included:
  • 900 Watt Motor Base
  • 18 oz. Nutri Ninja Cup
  • 24 oz. Nutri Ninja Cup
  • 2 Sip and Seal Lids
  • Ninja Pro Extractor Blades
  • Instruction Book
  • 30 Recipe and Wellness Guide


Pros:
  • Powerful
  • Stable
  • Easy to use
  • Great for on the go! The accessory cups, one smaller and one larger, made it easy to take my concoctions in the car or walking to class.  
  • Less expensive than the Magic Bullet
  • Compact
  • Smooth consistency
  • Easy to Clean
  • Dishwasher safe 

Cons:
  • Have to continuously hold down to blend
  • Limited to single serving cups
  • Only one speed
  • Does not blend everything perfectly


Overall, I believe the Nutri Ninja Proto be a great investment for those looking to make personal smoothies.   Since buying the Ninja, I make a smoothie nearly every morning for on my way to class or work. For the price and the power, it was worth the $100 investment.  Compared to the NutriBullet Pro 900, I found it to be more powerful, higher quality, and able to blend up ice, seeds, and vegetables much better.  The cheaper price tag is just icing on the cake!


This is my favorite morning-time green smoothie I’ve made with my Nutri Ninja Pro:
  • 1 cup kale
  • 2 large bananas
  • 1 cup almond milk

Place the ingredients into the Nutri Ninha Pro blender and blend until smooth, adding ice if you wish!
 
Tip: Use 1/2 - 1 frozen banana to make it a cold smoothie rather than adding ice!

Guest Post: Product Review: Garmin Forerunner 10-GPS Running Watch

I recently purchased the Garmin Forerunner 10 as a motivational tool to keep me running. I have
never been a runner before, having trouble completing just one mile, but wanted to make it a summer goal to get myself movin’. 

Since purchasing this watch, I have worked my way up to six miles straight. I want to share my opinion of this watch-turned-miracle-worker. I am not being compensated in any way for this review. 

Here’s my take:

Pros:
  • Easy to get on and off of my wrist
  • Comfortable fit while running
  • Large display which makes it easy to read while in motion
  • Lots of helpful and easy-to-use features including distance, pace, personalized interval (run/walk) running, virtual pacer, auto pause, personal records, and data saved from past runs
  • Easy connection to online analysis of your run including GPS route
  • Comes in fun colors—pink, purple, lime green
  • A light feature for your night runs
  • Displays the date
  • Battery life is good—needs to be charged every few days or after a long run
Cons:
  • Somewhat bulky for an everyday type watch
  • Can’t display the time while running with the distance/time showing
  • Can’t find location indoors—only for outdoor use
  • Depending on where you are, sometimes has difficulty finding location
  • Remembering to charge the watch
Overall: I really like the product and its motivational aspect. The pros outweigh the cons for me and I will continue to use this watch to improve my running. I would recommend this product.

  • Easy to drink from (straw)
  • Convenient to carry
  • Doesn’t spill
  • Helps me drink more and be more aware of how much
  • Good to-go cup
  • Eco-friendly since it is reusable
Cons:

  • Plastic can crack
Overall: Like the product, convenient for me to keep track of how much I drink, I will continue to use the product, I also like drinking from straws and like that it does not spill easily.
