Well, it’s a new year and you know what that means…New Year Resolutions. We’re not sure what yours is but ours is to increase our water intake beyond the bare minimum. It is something we’ve tried to do for years with mild success. For 2021, we’re challenging ourselves to increase to at least drinking 40oz of water. The tool that will help us achieve this? The Tervis 40oz Wide Mouth Water Bottles.

Tervis’ colossal water bottles hold 40oz of water (or any liquid you prefer). That a little over 1 liter or 5 full cups of water, more than half what women need to drink a day.  The Tervis 40oz Wide Mouth Water Bottles are double-walled tumblers that offer all the benefits of stainless steel bottles with a large bottle opening that makes it easy to add ice cubes. You’ll love its featured triple insulation which reduces condensation and keeps your drink cold for up to 84 hours; its copper-lined 18/8 stainless steel construction is durable, and the material won’t retain tastes or odors.

It also features a quiet non-slip base and an insulated high performance or quick access, deluxe spout lid. The included lid is leak-proof and BPA-free with an ergonomic loop for easy carrying. There’s also no need to worry about germs or contamination as the drinking surface is fully protected when closed.

Is Your New Year Resolution to Eat Healthier? Try the Ninja Ultima Blender w/ Dual Stage Blades

As with every year, New Year resolutions to lose weight and eat healthier are uttered across the globe every January but thanks to the amazing Ninja Ultima Blender, we can be truly on our way to creating healthier drinks and meals. There are five models in the Ninja Ultima range, most of which includes 16 oz. Single Serve Cups and lids for personal drinks on the go. The Ninja Ultima BL820 Kitchen System includes a food processing bowl and blade accessories. In this post, we’re concentrating on the Ninja Ultima BL810.


The expansive speed range of the Ninja Ultima Blender offers everything from gentle blending to total crushing to Nutrient Complete Juicing™. This means you can do anything from juicing to making soup, grinding meat, crushing ice, grating cheese, etc. Thanks to Ninja Ultima’s Total Crushing™ Blades that rotate at 5,000 RPM (crushing whole fruits, vegetables, seeds and ice) and its bottom High Speed Cyclonic Blades that rotate independently at 24,000 RPM (liquefying ingredients into a silky smooth consistency in a matter of seconds), you can prepare healthy meals any time of the day, for any occasion.

That’s right, the Ninja Ultima lets you go beyond just juicing. Want to lose weight in a delicious way? Try some metabolism boosting recipes like Apple Almond Power Smoothie, Kale and Cabbage Slaw, or Blackberry Mint Italian Ice (recipe below).

Planning a get-together? Try a delicious Sweet Red Pepper SpreadButternut Squash Mac & Cheese, or Blender Salsa. Throw out those thoughts that you’d have to buy the $600 Vitamix Blender to create those awesome, chef-inspired recipes. For half the cost of the Vitamix, you get a blender that is more powerful. So far I have tried these two recipes featured below (once with a substitute of pineapple and ginger instead of the blackberry+mint) and I plan on whipping up some homemade guacamole and trying the Chillout Chai Smoothie recipe.

I have personally owned and used a Ninja Professional Blender for over two years so I’m very familiar with the brand and their products. It should come as no surprise that we’re raving about the powerful Ultima blender. It is still going strong with no indication of slowing down (I guess this is why my mother has been eyeing it for herself). I am sure two years from now, I will still be enjoying my Ninja Ultima and all the delicious and healthy recipes they recommend.
