VITAMIX! May 11, 2012

The Vitamix. I would say that if my entire kitchen somehow burnt down because I used the oven for storage and my fiancé turned it on again, The Vitamix is the one appliance in the kitchen i would try to save.

I would have to say that this is the must have for any healthy kitchen. I can safely say that i use mine over 4 times per day.

Starting your morning with a green smoothie is one of the most amazing things you could do for your body. I used to start mine with a cup of coffee. For the past 3 years i have started it off with an energy packed, nutrient dense smoothie, much like the ones i post on this website. Getting Greens into your diet in liquid form like this is incredibly beneficial. When greens and super foods are broken down before they enter your body, it allows your digestive system to take a break. No hard work is being done. After it passes through your stomach, it can enter your small intestine for immediate and full nutrient absorption. No stress or strain is made. This is so vital for ultimate absorption and health!

Some of the most healthy desserts, soups, and sauces can be made. Most all of the recipes on this website require the use of this machine. I would say it is the best for anyone who wants to get healthy, be healthy, or simply lose weight. It is impossible to be unhealthy with this machine in your kitchen!

If you have a Vitamix, and are looking to do a smoothie fast for speedy weightless or ultimate deep body cleansing, contact me and we can set up your own personalized detoxification program!

6-8oz

Ingredients:

- handful beat greens

-2 skinny carrots

- 1 clove garlic

-2 celery sticks

-1/4 lemon

*Remember, when juicing it is very important to use organic veggies. The juice immediately hits your blood stream so you dont want any pesticides or GMO’s to get in there! *

 

Day 3 with Vitamix: Green Smoothies March 25, 2010

So I’m sure you have heard a lot about the Green Smoothie Craze.  Everyone is talking about “Drink your greens!”  But why?

My mother introduced me to green smoothies about 2 years ago. At my first glance, my response was “get that out of my face” after first taste, i was sold! I couldn’t believe the green sludge i was drinking tasted liked a fruit smoothie. So whats the point of drinking green sludge? A lot. We should be drinking at least 2 cups of liquid greens a day. When you drink them, the nutrients and fiber and everything else in them go directly into the intestines since there is no need for them to be broken down in the stomach- the blender did it for you. This will allow your body to “clean out” fairly easy. Also, the major amount of nutrients will be easily absorbed into the body and quickly. This is where the Vitamix steps in. The blenders high speed awesomely sharp blades break down all of the fibers and release the nutrients that your body tries so hard to break down. These blades do something your teeth can not do.

My Morning Smoothie:

Hand full of Kale

Hand full of Spinach

1 Banana

1 Apple

a little bit of mixed frozen berries (this makes is nice and cold)

Sometimes i add a super food powder as well! this is a great way to drink a SUPER smoothie!

I blend on Variable 1, quickly moving up to 10 and let it mix for a minute. For a thicker smoothie i move it up to high once i reach 10 and let it sit on that setting for a bit. For a more juice type drink, i use no frozen fruits, only fresh.

The sugars in the fruit will always over powers the taste of vegetables. Having the greens in there will also help prevent a blood sugar spike from eating so much fruit. (This is not a statement made for diabetics) Fruits are high in sugars, especially bananas, but the greens help to balance that out with their fiber and protein!

What is your favorite green drink? Please share i would love to try!
