About a year ago, my best friend purchased a VitaMix, and he couldn’t stop raving about how great it was. I told him he was crazy for paying so much for a blender. He continued to tout the benefits and encouraged me to buy one, too, but I refused.
In a last-ditch effort, he packed up his VitaMix, jumped into his car, and drove form Connecticut to Virginia, just to allow me the chance to enjoy some of his fruit and vegetable smoothies. All week we made different drinks, but I still wasn’t convinced, as I thought I could do the same things in my regular blender.
I proceeded to attempt to make one of the smoothies, but my old blender jammed immediately. When I tried to stick a plastic kitchen utensil inside to free it up, the blender chewed up the utensil and I had plastic shavings mixed throughout my drink. My friend couldn’t stop laughing.
When he left, I found myself missing those good, nutritious drinks. After a week, I finally ordered my very own VitaMix 5200. I now consider it one of the best purchases of my life.
I use my VitaMix daily. It has changed the way I eat by allowing me to easily consume eight to ten servings of vegetables every day, whereas before the VitaMix, I was lucky to have one or two. The result is a healthier me. I have not been sick since I started using the VitaMix to incorporate more vegetables into my diet, and I have lost weight and inches around my waist.
I can’t imagine my life without my VitaMix! Thank you for making such a high-quality product and thanks for helping me lead a healthier lifestyle. Healthy at 44 and living life!
