About a year ago, I invested in a Vitamix blender and I’m so very glad I did. I love, it love it, love it. Actually, I’m sipping a green smoothie as I type this. That purchase has helped my family create a healthy habit of eating more veggies daily. The benefit is clear. I know I feel healthier both mentally and physically when I pack more nutrient-dense whole foods into my day. I love that I can gulp down 2 cups of spinach even if I’m in a hurry. When I make fruit smoothies or popsicles for my kids, I toss in greens as well. Cleaning the Vitamix is a breeze, too. All I need to do is run the blender with some soapy water and voila! It was an expensive purchase, but I’d rather invest the money now in my health than spend it at the doctor’s office down the road. Another positive is that Vitamix blenders are hand-built in the USA. If you are looking for a very simple way to add nutritious whole foods to your diet, consider buying a Vitamix. Perhaps this is sounding like a commercial, but that is how much I love this machine and what it has done for my family.
