This is a good picture of how I usually feel in the morning.
I have to admit that I was skeptical about Chad's Christmas gift request. He had wanted a Vita Mix 4500 blender for a few months. The price of this kitchen appliance is daunting. It retails around $400-$500 .
I repeatedly asked him, "it is a blender right?"
I wouldn't balk at a similarly priced item as long as I could wear it. Not to mention we already had a blender that worked just fine.
I cracked and purchased the blender. Chad was ecstatic and now, so am I!
This blender has a 2 1/2 horse power motor and you can put virtually anything in it.
Lately I have been using it in the morning.
I throw these items in:
Kale - approximately 5 large leaves
1/2 of banana
a few stalks of celery
tiny piece of ginger
1/2 cup apple juice + add water to keep the calorie content low
Rice protein powder
The Vitamix turns it to liquid.
This shake will wake you up!! I highly recommend the vita mix and have heard that Blendtec makes a comparable model that retails at a slightly lower price.
We have made butternut squash soup in it. This blender is life changing
