Nutpods Product Review
Giving up half & half and honey in my coffee was one of the things I wrestled with before going on my 90 Day Challenge. Coffee is an important morning ritual for me—and I like it the way I like it. I didn’t want to compromise unless there was a good reason, and unless I could find a substitute that genuinely satisfied me. One of my “weight loss tips”, which is one of my personal rules is to never ever eat something you don’t genuinely like or enjoy! Well, the third day on my challenge I tried the Nutpods Original Flavor, and it satisfied me—so much so that I went for a second cup later in the day!
The next day I tried the Vanilla Flavor. From what I see, Vanilla flavor may be a favorite of many, but I decided that I liked the original better, so I’ll be ordering that one again. While I was writing this post, it made me crave another cup of coffee, so I used it as an excuse to try out the Hazelnut Flavor Nutpod. The smell is divine, and it tastes good and is naturally a little bit sweet—now I’m not sure which one will be my favorite—for me it’s a toss up between the Hazelnut (which generally in the store-bought creamers is way to sweet for my tastebuds) or the original.
I want to disclose that if you click on a link on this page, or on my site, I may have an affiliate relationship with that company or product, which means I will receive a small commission if you purchase.
A coffee loving reader and follower of the 90 Day Challenge asked me to please post about the nutritional information for Nutpods and here it is. The Vanilla flavor is exactly the same, only with the added ingredient of Natural Vanilla Flavor; likewise Hazelnut has Natural Hazelnut Flavor added.
Here’s some information about the ingredients in Nutpods from Barefoot Provisions:
Healthy fats, fiber, antioxidants, calcium, zinc, selenium, copper, magnesium, manganese, tryptophan and vitamin E are just a handful of the key nutrients that make almonds so nutritious. Almonds are so nutritious — their list of benefits reads like a patent medicine bottle. They’re full of health-giving fats, like oleic acid and linoleic acid, powerful antioxidants that can protect against many forms of cancer (oleic acid can protect women against breast cancer specifically), and can also significantly lower the amount of LDL in your blood, and reduce your risk for heart disease. Almonds can build a strong immune system, prevent the onset of high blood pressure and protect you from other diseases like ADHD, asthma and osteoporosis.
Coconut has been used by many cultures worldwide for thousands of years, and is well known for its many amazing properties. Coconut is so nutritious, its list of benefits reads like a patent medicine bottle. It’s full of health-boosting lauric acid and medium-chain triglycerides, has antimicrobial and anti-viral qualities, and has been shown to help with weight loss, Alzheimer’s, cognitive function and athletic performance. It nourishes the thyroid, helps prevent candida overgrowth, boosts the metabolism, and makes skin and hair softer. Also, it’s one of the tastiest things a person could eat. (No offense, sea veggies.)
You can read more about Nutpods on Barefoot Provisions just by going to the Nutpods Variety Pack product page, and I encourage you to do that. Be sure to scroll down to the bottom and read about Madeline Hayden who created Nutpods using a Kickstarter campaign. I love supporting good, wholesome sustainable products and good people. I like to know the story behind the products. This is a great story about a very determined woman entrepreneur who saw a need and was determined to fulfill it.
