Vitamix – a Kitchen Tool You’ll Use Daily
If you’re like me, you’ve probably got an assortment of very cool, almost completely unused kitchen tools and appliances. There are SO MANY available, and all seem like such a good idea at the time!
- The ice-cream maker.
- The waffle iron.
- The indoor grill.
- The fondue pot.
- The sandwich machine.
- The pizza stones.
- The slow-cooker.
- The pressure cooker.
- The food processor.
- The dehydrator.
- The juicer…
OK – I actually DO use some of these pretty often – I’m a big fan of the pressure cooker (at least once or twice a week in the winter; less often in summer). And we finally bought a really good juicer (this is the third one we’ve bought!), which we use regularly (several times a week). I use the food processor frequently. And my kids love waffles, so I use the waffle iron maybe once a month.
With my Vitamix, I can toss whole flaxseed into my smoothie, and know that it won’t just go around and around – it’ll actually be completely ground by the time I’m done. I can blend leafy greens, and not end up with big pieces. I can throw in frozen berries and banana, and it handles them no problem (before my vitamix, I burned out one high-end blender motor in less than two weeks! Luckily, it was still under warranty). Basically, my Vitamix can take anything I’m apt to want to blend. I like that!
My parents bought their Vitamix about 6 years before I did, and my mom makes healthy soups with it several times a week. Smoothies, too, but that’s not part of their daily routine. Yet.
At any rate – the point I’m trying to make is – this is one kitchen tool that earns a prominent place on your counter, so that there will be no reason why you can’t use it ALL THE TIME!
A whole food diet is the key to a long and healthy life. New recommendations encourage consuming more fruits, vegetables and whole grains every day. This is easily accomplished by eating terrific-tasting, nutrient-rich whole food meals made in the Vitamix machine.
