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.
