For thirty years, I had dreamed of owning a Vitamix. However, I kept putting that wishful thinking on the back burner of my kitchen aspirations, as other things kept diverting my attention.
It wasn’t until I looked in the mirror one birthday morning and realized “I HAVE to do something.” I was overweight, low on energy, and stressed. In my heart, I knew that weight loss pills weren’t the answer, and my passion for running wasn’t enough. Something had to give; I needed a driving force, a lifestyle makeover, to propel me towards the health that I so desired.
I took the leap and invested in a Vitamix. Now my mornings consist of a green smoothie. I know…”Ewwww! That sounds disgusting!” Really, it is healthy, filling, and easy. Vitamix has a great webpage of mix and match smoothie ingredients so even the most intimidated smoothie-enthusiast can blend like a pro every time.
In the evenings, I come home and “Vitamix” a meal comprised of healthy vegetables and whole food ingredients. Sometimes it’s soup; other times it is more substantial. It is always filling, tasty, and satisfying.
Since I began this culinary trek (just three weeks ago), I have lost 17 pounds without hunger pains and constant cravings. I am no longer stress-eating. My energy levels have increased. So is it working? You tell me.
