After having my kids, my diet and fitness routine has fallen off track. Life gets really busy and with the “to-do” list constantly growing, I find it really hard to bring my mind back to living a healthier lifestyle. With a busy schedule it is so important for me that the transition be easy to incorporate into my already busy life. Incorporating more fruits and vegetables into our diets – is the goal!
Healthy Appliances to Get Back on Track!
Having the right tools is a great start. Breville’s (#Ad) range of blenders and juicers support a healthy lifestyle – and with simple to follow recipe guides – the ColourMeHealthy.Breville.com microsite – is the perfect place to get started! This is a nutritional resource to make the journey to more nutritional eating really simple!
Breville has sent me two of their newest appliances – The Juice Fountain Cold XL and the Breville Boss Blender – to help me get started on this new journey. Just like a rainbow, everyone is different, which is why Breville helps you easily discover whether juicing, blending (or both!) is best for you.
I’ve used the Breville Colour Me Healthy website to find recipe inspiration and nutritional facts – to kick-start a summer of fresh-inspired blending & juicing! I didn’t know the difference between juicing and blending, I’ve done both in the past. The website tells you all about the differences. The website also has Fresh Planners that you can print to keep yourself on track.
Breville Juice Fountain Cold XL
Here are some great features I learned about the Breville Juice Fountain Cold XL:
- It has a Quiet setting. This is great for when you’re doing some early morning juicing! This setting reduces mechanical noise by 40 per cent.
- The Juice Fountain Cold XL Features a 3.5 inch feed chute which means less prep.
- It’s fast too – it can extract 70 fluid ounce of nutrient rich juice up to 5x faster than a ‘cold press’ machine.
- It has Cold Spin Technology™ which allows juice to flow up and through the stainless steel cutting disc surrounded by an Italian-made mesh filter to ensure an insignificant temperature increase, less than 2°F. Why is this important? Juicers that transfer heat can harm the delicate vitamins and nutrients. With Cold Spin Technology, Breville protects the precious vitamins and minerals – contributing to a higher nutritional yield.
- It comes with a Seal and Store Jug to prepare juice for the whole family or store it in the refrigerator for up to 3 days! This means you don’t have to juice every single day.
Here is my Favourite Juice Recipe — This one will rock your world!
- 1 Orange
- 1 cup Kale
- ½ Apple
- 1 Carrot
- 1 small Beet (use the beet leaves too if you have!)
- 1 inch of Ginger
- To make, add the ingredients to your juicer in the order listed (because order makes a difference in the amount of extraction, I've learned!)

Breville the Boss Blender
And, I already have a Breville Blender (I’ve had it for almost 10 years and it’s still kicking!) This goes to show you the amazing quality of Breville appliances. I am so excited that Breville has sent me their newest Blender — The Breville Boss Blender. It has incredible versatility – I use the Boss™ blender to dream up frozen treats without preservatives, create fine soups and nut butters, pulse the softest milled flours, make crushed ice for expert cocktails – and so much more!
Here is what I learned about Breville’s newest blender:
- It houses the world’s first “Green Smoothie” button.
- It has ProKinetix® Blade and Bowl System designed with 3 powerful stainless steel blades contoured to the base of the jug for maximum cutting power and processing results.
- It has a beautiful LCD display counts up on speed settings and down for pre-programmed settings for complete control and precision when blending.
- It houses an Auto Clean Function to easily clean around the blades.
I love a good tropical smoothie and the Breville Boss Blender comes with a whole book full of great recipes so, I used one of theirs. Here’s the one I’m sharing.
Tropical Green Smoothie
- 2 Cups (250g) pineapple, peeled, roughly chopped
- 1 ¼ cups (160g) frozen chopped mango
- 1 ¼ cups (60g) kale leaves. Stems removed, roughly chopped
- 4 ice cubes
- 1 cup (250ml) chilled coconut water
- 2 Tbsp raw almonds
- Place ingredients into blender jug and secure lid.
- Press “Green Smoothie” button until program finishes.
