I love my vitamix. LOVE my vitamix. Ok… let me slow down and start over.
Here’s the story.
We have a friend (married couple) that “oooooo” and “auhhhhh” over their Vitamix. They say it’s their “best appliance” in the kitchen… that “no one can live without a Vitamix”.
I don’t know about you, but emotion/passion AND a product to improve health and I’m starting to look in that direction. Not to buy (necessarily) but to educate myself.
So what’s the big deal w/ this blender? (by the way, tell a vitamix owner that it’s just a blender and see what they say……….. Go ahead.. try it :) )
I found myself looking forward to Costco’s Vitamix sale at the beginning of June and even tracking it on my calendar. I HAD to get one.
Then the day came and off to Costco we went. Even better than a sale, there was a demonstration w/ the Vitamix. Not only did I learn a ton (like the “goop” and seeds in cantaloupe is jam-packed w/ nutrients) but I almost bought two blenders (excuse me… “Vitamixers”) on the spot!
So here’s the deal. I DO use this more than any other appliance in my kitchen. I DO find myself fascinated w/ it’s abundant resume of capabilities (I just made soup in this thing a week ago and cookies last night). I do brag about my green smoothies and “Shrek juice” to everyone who will listen (hello, I’m eating 3 lbs of spinach every week! I should be bragging!). And my kids are asking for more smoothies all the time. Why? Because they taste GREAT and are full of nutrients (their smoothies always have flax seed, probiotics, TONS of spinach, cabbage, almonds, fruit, etc, etc.). And what do I do along the way? I educate, educate, educate my little holistic kiddos about their body and how to better take care of it… and why we should feed it good fuel. Not only does it taste great, but it make our bodies feel great too! Thank you Vitamix for helping us take our health to the next level! Muah! :)
