“Eat right to win the fight” sounds like a simple, yet somewhat catchy phrase. It is also my motto and my way of life, all made possible with the online purchase of the Vitamix 5200.
The day I was told that my breast cancer had spread to the bone in my arm, the life that I knew was stripped from me in seconds. In desperation, at the young age of 31, I questioned why the cancer that we thought was gone had returned. As a way to fight back, I began to research health and nutrition, so that I could feel like I had some control in the situation, instead of relying solely on my team of doctors and their prescription medications.
Being vegetarian for the past 16 years of my life, I felt I was pretty aware of what I ate. The more I started reading, and as websites led me to more websites, I realized that although I was eating less sodium, less fat, all natural, etc., it was all processed food.
Through my research, the one common thread to beat illness was a nutritious diet. Everyone recommended the purchase of a Vitamix, which would cost more than anything in my kitchen, but I needed to regain my health.
From my first dinner with my new Vitamix of fresh tomato basil sauce with homemade zucchini noodles, to my daily green smoothies with kale, spinach, red onions, parsley, tomatoes, and peppers…the taste is absolutely alive. This is how food was meant to taste!
It’s been nearly two years of clean body scans, and at 33 years old, I am feeling more healthy and alive than I ever have before! I love my Vitamix!
