For those of you non-shy people (And you know who you are), I'd like to hear from you, so please pour your hearts out to me and let's have a Friday chat!
Topic of the week: My New Vitamix!
Some of you may remember that I'm on a quest to lose ten pounds before July when hubby and I are going to a Sandals resort in Jamaica! Well, so far I've lost 4 pounds. Doesn't sound like a lot, I know. But hey, I'm only 5'1" and over 50, so give me a break! In addition to my weight loss, I'm trying to become super healthy. Everything I read on the topic leads me to believe that my diet should consist of a bunch of organic fruits and veggies, whole grains, limited lean meats and chicken, less sugar and more exercise.
Here you see me about to make my smoothie. I put into the Vitamix
Frozen strawberries and blueberries
1 cup of coconut milk
1/2 cup Kefir
I usually also add an apple and some broccoli. Actually, you can put anything you want in it
I have to tell you that since I've started this, I feel really good!!
The Vitamix also does other things. It chops veggies for salads, makes salsa, hummus, ice cream, soup, peanut butter, and grinds whole grain then kneads dough to make bread..
The only trouble is, it is expensive. But it comes with a 7 year warranty and I can tell you, it's top quality. If you are considering becoming healthier and eating right, this is the way to go.. and it is worth saving your pennies for. (And no, I'm not being paid by Vitamix to say any of this) :-)
Have a great weekend!!!
