I purchased a Vitamix shortly after being diagnosed with breast cancer. Breast and ovarian cancer run in my family. Today, three years after my diagnosis, I am healthy and cancer free!
Working for Vegetarian Times magazine, I have always known the importance of eating a diet rich in fruits and vegetables. The problem is, I have never been interested in cooking. After my diagnosis, I realized I needed to change my eating habits. I wanted a quick and easy way to get more fruits and veggies into my diet, and my Vitamix has turned out to be a real blessing.
I started our slowly, following recipes for smoothies. I then realized how easy it was to take pretty much whatever I happened to have on hand, even spinach, to create different smoothies with various tastes. For the first time, I was actually having fun in the kitchen!
Now I use my Vitamix for many other things-muffins, soup, and I love making hummus. Not only has my Vitamix helped me to eat healthier, it has also helped to inspire me in the kitchen. As an added benefit. I now really enjoy cooking, too.
Vitamix, thank you for expanding my culinary world and for making it so easy and healthy!
