Vitamix, yo.

After a long hiatus, I am finally posting a real entry to my blog. I have been really ill over the past several months, but I'm on the mend and finally able to communicate again!

To mark my return, I thought I would talk about a new toy that I got for my birthday: the magical Vitamix.

For those of you that do not know about the Vitamix, it is a crazy powerful blender (similar to the one from "will it blend" series on youtube) that can pulverize almost anything. I have been really trying to improve my nutrition b/c I feel better when I don't eat a lot of junk, but it can be really difficult to get proper nutrition and no processed foods when you feel terrible all of the time. I wanted the Vitamix so that I can have fruit and vegetable smoothies and soups without much effort required. So, my parents and husband pitched in to get me this mega-expensive blender for my bday! Such a great family! So far, I love it. I've been blending everything I can find and I think it will really help my nutrition. Maybe on future posts I will talk about recipes or cookbooks that I like...who knows?

Hopefully you'll be hearing from me more regularly now that I am feeling a bit better. Maybe I'll actually get to that post on drugs for POTS that I've been talking about for months and months! :) Hope everyone is feeling well!


To make you smile...
