Aha Moments: A Few Reflections on Wellness
Vitamix’s high performance technology produces smooth and creamy smoothies, soups and so much more. A separate container for dry grains, nuts and seeds is ideal for grinding your own flours and nut butters.
I’ve used many blenders over the years and didn’t realize my beverages could have been greatly improved, until my dermatologist told me about Vitamix. She explained that Vitamix blended the pulp into a lighter, more delicate and palatable texture unlike those created by traditional brands. At first, I was somewhat skeptical. How could a blender improve the texture without me having to add more water? Since blending was part of my regular health routine, I decided to invest in the best and was amazed!
It’s been almost a decade since I’ve been enjoying my Vitamix. This product’s ability to liquefy fruits and vegetable within seconds, is phenomenal! Further, the large container allows you to prepare multiple servings versus the single-serving limits of some blenders. While there are other less-expensive, quality brands on the market today, a Vitamix promises greater returns.
As I’m sitting at the computer typing this post, I’m savoring a blend prepared in my dependable investment. No special recipe this time. I just peered into the fridge to see what was available to throw into the container: broccoli stems, radishes, apple, chia seeds, maca, carob, blackstrap molasses… Obviously, I wasn’t concerned about aesthetics today, but expected my first sip to be a pleasant surprise. Yumm! Okay, I admit my concoction resembles mud, but it tastes heavenly.
