The NutriBullet used to be clearly geared toward older Americans: Now, when you go to NutriBullet. The NutriBullet recipe and health website, NutriLiving.

After that first euphoric week, life got back to normal, in spite of my daily NutriBlasts. I had a rough day at work and took it out on a friend. I overslept several days in a row. I got a weird bug that knocked me out for a day. I forgot to respond to emails. I do still think my skin looks better, but that could just be wishful thinking.
