My Favorite Appliance

Hello Everyone and welcome to those of you I met at Heritage Christian Academy! Today I am getting the word out about my favorite appliance. I really should have sent this out before Mother's Day so you could have put in a request, but it just didn't happen. So here's the scoop: I love my Vita-Mix! Now the fact is I lived without one for many years and my cheap-o blender served me well. But then...I took the plunge and ordered a shiny new Vita-Mix. I've had it for a couple of years now and it is, by far, my FAVORITE appliance. I think I'd give up my stove before I'd let go of this gem.

We make thick, fruity, delicious, nutritious smoothies every morning for breakfast. I throw in a handful of almonds, some flaxseed, a whole orange (peeled), a banana, frozen fruit...strawberries, mango, blueberries, etc. I also add some water or rice milk or almond milk. Then to supercharge this one-glass meal, I add some of Dr. Ben Kim's Super Green Food (it's a whole food green powder which is our "daily vitamin"), a few scoops of Ambrotose (a glyconutrient I believe is necessary for optimal health), and anything else that is sitting around...maybe a pear that is getting overripe...or the romaine leftover from last nights salad. Grind it up until it's creamy smooth and breakfast is served! And yes - this is what we all have for breakfast - kids included.

Here's the bottom line...if you decide to make the leap to Vita-Mix land, you can get FREE SHIPPING (a $25 value) when you order with my code: 06-003148. I signed up as a distributor not because I was looking for something to sell, but because it's my favorite appliance and I end up telling people about it anyway - so they get free shipping and I get a small sum.

Although I mostly use my Vita-Mix for smoothies, it also grinds wheatberries into beautiful whole grain flour in ONE minute. More on that in a later post! I also whip up a strawberry lemonade on hot summer days and did you know you can make smoothie pops for healthy popsicle alternatives?

Blessings to each of you!

Thank you for this post! We love to make smoothies, we're still using my old stand by blender though. It's great to hear about what you put in your smoothies. I am excited to hear more about grinding grains in the Vita-Mix. I would love to have an appliance to make our own flour in that can also be used for other purposes. I would also love to get a Bosch mixer but that's another big investment. Thank you again!

Thanks so much for the tip on Vita-mix! I started making smoothies for my family and the smoothie maker I have doesn't cut it. I plan on ordering one in the near future. I also enjoy reading your "healthy" newsletters.
