Vita-Mix Giveaway!

green smoothie vitamix

Yes, you read that right! My friend, Jessie, of Vintage Remedies fame…is giving away a Vita-Mix 5200 on her blog! Go enter to win! And spread the word!

Ok, Sara. You’re always talking about this Vita-Mixy thing. What’s the deal? Well…the Vita-Mix is the “holy grail” of all blenders. With the blades traveling at 240 mph on a 2+ horsepower “engine”, you can blend pretty much anything…FAST. So, why do you need a Vita-Mix? Well, you don’t NEED it. BUT, if you’re serious about raw foods or you just want to be healthier, the Vita-Mix is a wonderful investment. I haven’t met one person who doesn’t love their Vita-Mix! Other blenders work “fine” for awhile, until you blend them too much and they start smoking. We decided that we would rather have ONE high-quality blender that was amazing (with a 7 year warranty), instead of buying one blender a year for 7 years. We haven’t once regretted our decision. I use the Vita-Mix daily to blend my smoothies, make almond milk, nut butters, sauces, soups, ice creams, and more. If you like to make bread/muffins/pancakes, you can use the dry container to grind grain as well.

If you’re interested in purchasing a new or refurbished Vita-Mix, check out my link in the upper right corner of the blog or click here. By using my affiliate link, you quality for FREE standard shipping. There is a 30 day money back guarantee…so you have nothing to lose!

Applesauce and Vita-Mix Love

This morning when Bella and I were making those delicious Apple Hemp Muffins…I realized that I had no applesauce. But I did have a bowl of “almost going bad” apples and a Vita-Mix! πŸ™‚ I peeled and cored them all…threw them in the Vita-Mix and within about 20 seconds, I had delicious homemade applesauce (so much more delicious than any grocery store variety). I LOVE this machine!

There are many of you who have ordered a Vita-Mix from this site lately…and I’d love to hear what your favorite recipe/concoction is. If you’ve been waiting to buy one…now is a great time! With summer approaching, it’s only natural to start a green smoothie addiction! πŸ™‚

Words to Eat By

"It is easier to change a man's religion than to change his diet." -Margaret Mead

"I don't understand why asking people to eat a well-balanced vegetarian diet is considered drastic, while it is medically conservative to cut people open and put them on cholesterol lowering drugs for the rest of their lives." - Dean Ornish, MD

β€œFinish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could. Some blunders and absurdities no doubt crept in; forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day; begin it well and serenely and with too high a spirit to be encumbered with your old nonsense.” – Ralph Waldo Emerson
