To Vitamix or Not To Vitamix. That is YOUR question…
I love my daily Super Green Smoothie. I love it so much that I think I talk about to everyone. So, then that always begs the question from whoever I am talking to…DO YOU THINK I SHOULD GET A VITAMIX? I figured that since I have been asked this same question so many times, I should just tell my answer to the world. And my answer it….IT IS UP TO YOU…But here is a bit more clarification on that weak answer.
To me, my Vitamix is a lifestyle choice. It is a lifestyle choice because it is expensive. For those that know me well, they know that wellness is extremely important so spending time and money on items that will help me live a healthier life is well worth the price. I know my Super Green Smoothie is packed with lots of great nutrients that will kickstart my day and give me that extra serving of veggies and fruits. This is so important to me that I want to make sure that I have the BEST tools out there that will make me WANT to have that smoothie every morning. I want to make sure my veggies and fruits are well pureed to ensure my smoothie goes down smoothly (per the name “smoothie”). If I do not have the right tools to make it just the way I like it, I would not make it every day and that would then impact my lifestyle of wellness.
However, I did not just jump into my Vitamix decision. I spent about 3 months using a regular blender before I tried the Vitamix and I will say that I am so glad I bought it. I bought it from Costco and made sure before I left that I would be able to return it if it did not make me the smoothest Super Green Smoothie ever!! The Vitamix met my expectations and I am still loving it today! Admittedly, I do not really use for anything else like soups and dips but I know I need to…I will get there but for now, I am happy using it for my smoothies.
And, just so you know, I own the Vitamix 5200. I got it on sale at Costco so it is not top of the line Vitamix but it works for me. A friend of mine bought a Vitamix that is “short” that fits in her refrigerator which would be nice. Mine is too big for that so I bought a nice “fancy” glass container from Target to store my leftovers.
So, that’s my story on the Vitamix. WHAT IS YOUR STORY? SHARE YOUR COMMENTS.
