I am a health freak and eat healthy food but again who has time to wash and cut up fresh food everyday. I certainly don’t. We know it’s healthy to eat a minimum of five servings of fruit and vegetables a day. Finally, I found an answer.
I was so impressed when I first saw the Vitamix machine in action. It made hot soups from fresh vegetables and ice cream from fresh fruit, all within a matter of minutes. At first I thought, I’ll just get a cheap blender to do the same thing. Later I discovered regular blenders do not have the power as Vitamix. The whirling blades of Vitamix travel at 240 mph which generates enough energy to make hot soup. For example, I combine boiled potatoes, split peas, and a chicken cube for a delicious hot potato-split pea soup.
Not to mention, I even make ice cream with this Vitamix blender. The Vitamix lets me make ice cream from fresh organic fruit. For example, I’ll peel and freeze some strawberries. The next day, they go into the Vitamix and come out as delicious and nutritious strawberry ice cream. Or, I’ll freeze some yogurt and put it into the Vitamix with nuts and syrup. Out comes my very own black walnut and maple ice cream. So Yummy!
For those of you who have babies, wouldn’t you love to make your own pureed organic baby food? With Vitamix you can. So Vitamix is not a blender. Is it a juicer? Not by any means. I was tempted to get a cheap juicer as well. But juicers strain out the juice taking out all the nutritious pulp and fiber. Vitamix doesn’t throw away any portion. You get the benefits of the whole food.
Moreover, Vitamix breaks these foods down to the cellular level making easy for the body to absorb. Now, my favorite part of owning a Vitamix is that it’s self-cleaning. All I do is half fill it with water and a drop of l detergent, turn it on for one minute and rinse. That’s it.
So what have I gained–I feel better. I’ve saved money by eating out less. I’ve lowered my cholesterol level considerably, and increased my intake of fruits and vegetable. With a Vitamix, I’m healthier now.
