This is an investment. However, you will wonder what took you so long! When I first changed my diet I had a hard time figuring out how to incorporate all the fruit & veggies I need (and wanted) to eat. Especially the veggies!!! When your tastebuds are used to highly sweetened flavors, and artificial flavors, as well as heavy salt & fat all this REAL FOOD taste like, well….not great. The good news is your tastebuds reset and in a few weeks all the healthy stuff tastes great and you actually crave it. BUT the Vitamix saved me and I am not sure without it I would be where I am today. Kale, spinach, celery, cucumbers, apples, berries, avocado, banana, mango, kiwis (skin on)…all of it blended up and the best part? You keep all of the nutrients, including the fiber!!! So you are eating the WHOLE fruit as intended, not just the juice of the fruit. It is a snap to clean, and makes experimenting with real, whole foods awesome. A little of this, a little of that, and bam!!! Off you go!
Now we use the Vitamix 5200 every day in our house. Sauces, soups, hummus, dips, protein shakes and lots of healthy shakes!
I have even been known to take it on road trips, it is kind of addictive!! Enjoy!
