Words simply cannot express the sheer joy I felt the day she arrived. So beautifully packaged, just for me. I almost felt like she knew me already and that I would love her forever the way she fit so securely in my arms the very first time I picked her up. Packaged so perfectly, and oh so sturdy! And the hum. No, she wasn't loud like the others you see. And yes, it is very common for them to get loud, but not my baby. No, she hummed without making all that racket like those others. What you ask, that could fill me with so much joy and glee? A baby? A puppy? No....my very first VITAMIX!!!!
See, you have to understand, I have been wanting one of these babies ever since I saw over 10 years ago how the product rep on TV would throw a rock in this sucker and make sand! If it could do that to a rock, surely goodness and mercy it could make my smoothies smooooooooth as a puree! And it does, it really does!! Super simple to use and clean up- I mean just plug it up, one flip up and a dial for speed and another for extra speed and blending, rinse out thoroughly when you're done. But that's just it, you're not done! You want to use it EVERYDAY....and you can! You should! Ooooh, the possibilities are endless! Recipes from my fresh and garlicky chilled homemade gazpacho, to an anti-inflammatory warm and creamy turmeric spiced tea for your sinuses, all can be made in a matter of seconds with this baby....I mean, Vitamix. But the kicker, the real eye-opener that made me realize that it was more than worth the price after all these years of waiting and contemplating, was the fact that it could beautifully blend wheat grass. WHEAT GRASS!! You know, the super-SUPER food that's juiced and sold for about $8 per ounce in your local well known smoothie shops? I now purchase a bundle of wheat grass myself that runs me anywhere from $4-$7 and I can get about 10X as much for literally a fraction of the price! Now in my opinion, that more than pays for itself.
Now...do you have a Vitamix? Well, what are you waiting for?!? Can't afford to part with that much cash all at once? My foodie lovers, please know that QVC is a beeeeeeeauuuuuutiful place!
If you do have a Vitamix, comment below and let me know your absolute favorite things to make in yours. If you don't have one yet, what are you waiting for? Your body will thank you for it....over, and over, and over again!! Yeeeeeaaaahhh baby!
