As those of you who read this blog regularly know, last December we all converted to a whole food plant based diet. Since then I can honestly say we all have benefited from the change in numerous ways. We feel physically healthier, better about our relationship to animals, and no real loss of foods that no longer make our plate. Now, as we continue to venture deeper into our new way of eating, we have recently made a significant investment that already has paid off big dividends: we bought a Vitamix Blender!
This blender is really a machine, like the big toy in the photo today! It’s so powerful we have blended things we never thought possible. I will admit when I first heard about these blenders and the price I had major sticker shock (kinda still do). But like most things in life, you pay for what you get. Since getting it over a week ago we have used it every day and it’s becoming an important tool for further evolving our diet. Yes, getting one is an investment like a good mattress, but if you eat lots of fruits and vegetables this is a must have machine!
