Are You Still Here?

Yes I resigned the blog. I started a new one. But it just wasn't working out. I mean, this blog and I have been together almost 4 years! We have history. So we made up and got back together.
I'm not sure I'm going to be much more faithful than I was before the break up. My blogging mojo seems to have died, and since I am taking a year off training and racing what is there to blog about anyway?
Oh yeah...VITAMIXING!!!!
Yes, my passion for sport has been traded for a passion for blending and drinking my fruit and veg.
It is a beautiful thing.

Since getting our Vitamix the first week of January we have both been drinking 2 (Darin) to 4 (me) large cups of super foods a day. I am getting a handle on the art of blending greens with fruit to make the perfect blend. I am learning an amazing amount about what my body wants and needs and I can honestly say I have never been this consistent at getting my 10 servings of fruit and veg a day. We load up our fridge with produce and 3 days later we are re-loading. It is fantastic.

The Vitamix is different from a juicer, instead of separating the juice from the pulp, a Vitamix blends the entire fruit or veg to a perfect consistency so that it is easily absorbed by the body, and you get all the beneficial fiber! Additionaly, the vitamix is a powerful blender that allows you to blend in a short time so you are not heating and destroying the valuable enzymes in the food.

It is also a thing of art :) Check out our Saturday night special:
Variety of greens- spinach, broccoli, kale, grapefruit, oranges, blueberries, apples plus one can of organic coconut milk. And then of course the cherries on top :) and some mint. It was deelish.

Ah, you are preaching to the Vitamix choir....we love ours too, by far smoothies are the best thing ever but we've even made soups in ours too! The Vitamix website has heaps of recipes...
