The latest investment……

So I have been drooling over Vitamix’s for what seems like forever…..this year I decided that I was going to get one, no matter what. With that in mind a week ago we stopped at the Vitamix outlet and priced the Professional 500, it was $340 but going up another $40 by the end of the month. The husband asked a lot of questions, one was why do they have refurbished ones? The reply, some people just return them……now that I can’t imagine but whatever…..

Yesterday  while Renee and I were downtown dealing with the one granddaughter’s father; the husband went out and brought home this:

ok, so the table is a mess, we are after all homeschooler’s……

So today I got out of bed early courtesy of the grand baby, and made this:

I even got the 2 youngest to drink it…….she is not sure about it though, and agreed the banana’s were a bit much…..although it did make it nice and creamy……..I did have to promise her that I would make her one tomorrow without spinach 😉

I am so glad that we finally bought this, I am finding that I have having more problems with food due to pesticides and chemicals, so this is my answer to eating healthy without feeling like everything I eat is crunchy…….

Can’t wait to try a few of the recipes in the cookbook that came with it…….and am seriously hoping that I will lost the last 15# that I have as a goal……Ok, I must educate children and start working on my spring break todo list….which is very long…….
