Blend it with Blendtec

Let's talk about one my other loves.  My blender.

I know I exaggerated, but not with this statement.  

I use my blender AT least once a week.  (Haha, I just wrote month instead a week, but that wouldn't be a great statement.)

Truly, truly.  Especially since my little man stopped nursing.  He's hungry ALL the time and loves to eat. 

What do you feed a 9 month of baby?  Almost anything it seems.  I make my kids green smoothies every day.  I'm a super lazy preparer too.  I don't chop things up nice. It doesn't always taste very good either. Sometimes it takes a little trial and error.  

I freeze most of my produce before it goes bad so we can just throw it in the blender.  I don't even cut out the seeds in my apples.  I do, take out the stem.  (Mother of the year award right?)  I either break or chop up carrots and throw it in the blender.

Luckily, these bad boys can chew up anything and everything.  Solid, frozen apples, frozen carrots, frozen half peaches, frozen kale, pineapple.  These guys can do it all.

I really love this new Twister jar.

Perfect for baby food, pizza dough, guac.  Ya know, the thicker stuff.

My kids both know that when the blender is going, it means they will be eating something soon.  It really does make my life easier.  The photo above shows I've used it 543 times.  Which, I had to send in my old base that had over 1500 uses on it.  But it's got a warranty of 7 years or something crazy and they sent a new one in 3 days.  I've had the blender a little over three years and if you do the math?  I actually use it way more than just once a day! 

This blender is on of the few appliances I let sit on my counter, mainly because I get sick of putting it away all the time.  

Since I'm a footzoner and kind of a health nut, I tell all my clients that they need to get on the green smoothie boat. It's one of the easiest and fastest ways to get anyone the proper fruits, veggies and grains in their diet.  Especially if you have little kids, big kids or husbands who need a little shot of good food in their lives.  

Now, I know they are pricey, believe me, I know.  But really, the blender helps my family and I be healthier with the green smoothies, plus, we totally have made our money back.  Now, my aunt and my two sisters both own one, because we use them that much.  

If you've been thinking about it, just do it.  It's totally worth it. E-mail me if you have questions.

Also, if you are looking for a good Green Smoothie book, I suggest this one.  It's not a diet, it's a way a life.
