We recently invested in a Vitamix. I am loving all the smoothie recipes. Boy am I getting in my fruits and vegetables like there is no tomorrow. Plus my husband loves to invent things. We have had some of the most wonderful soups ever. And with this cold weather......I don't need to say more.
I have literally replaced my breakfasts with smoothies. I try all types. Even ones that are a bit more veggie tasting that fruit. It mixes it up and what a variety. Can't say that I would ever be bored. Some of our dinners are replaced with the soups my husband invents (or is inspired by with the accompanying recipe book along with his cooking shows). We add a salad or a small portioned dinner (we do a partial Jenny Craig food diet) and voila a perfectly balanced meal that won't leave you hungry.
Considering the investment (the Vitamix was not an inexpensive purchase), I'm so glad we are using it to better our food intake.
Fruits and veggies beware!
