Off to a good start? lol

Tuesday, May 01, 2012

Well, I thought it was until I went to make my first fruit smoothie with FROZEN strawberries. I don't have my new blender yet, so opted to try and see what I could get with my old one. Ohhh boy! It is just not cut out for this type of blending. I ended up using my food processor and still had a major lots of chunks, but it did smooth out somewhat I ended up pouring it into a bowl, and using a spoon, tasted great! lol Do learn from me, that reg. blenders don't work. I almost burnt the motor up, God awful smell.
But still all a twitter about going the raw route. No matter what. I signed up for the team of raw foods, mainly for some unanswered questions, where the team leader Yvonne was able to give me. I was supposed to wait until after this week to join but I needed a couple of concerns taken care of.

    Yes, I think when we start out we learn the hard way. Part of the a'twitterness of being a newbie. This too shall pass.

    Hey, I'm trying this out when using noisy appliances. Check it out.


    No point being a vegan if you go deaf.

    I'd say you're off to a good start, even if your blender does make your strawberries look like strawberry ice cubes! lol

    That's what my old blender did too. LOL... sorbet! My KitchenAid does much better if you are looking for something less expensive than a VitaMix. Although, that's on my Xmas list! And welcome to the Raw Foodies team. I am not all raw. Salads and green smoothies daily and then a meal with my family. I am in progress. :) Hope your detox goes as you want. Good luck!
