Post series on The One, my list of 100 essentials for living simply and living small. #simplicity #100essentials
There are weeks that go by when I don’t use the Vitamix and then there are months that go by when I use it daily. It has a lot to do with smoothies. In the Spring, Summer, and early Fall when I crave a smoothie to break my fast the machine gets daily use. In the late fall and winter, I want and crave warm foods and the machine sits tucked away and nearly forgotten.
I was gifted this Vitamix 10 years ago. I’m not sure if I would have paid quite this much for a blender. I’ve seen others that might be just as good. I can attest to the fact that this thing is a workhorse. It chomps through ice, through frozen fruit, and it makes a piping hot squash soup — provided the squash is hot when you put in in the pitcher.
