I bought a Vitamix Blender from Costco about 3 weeks ago. I make a fruit smoothie for breakfast and a veggie smoothie for an after lunch snack. A lot of my friends are fighting a cold going around, but I'm feeling great. I think the fruit and veggie smoothies are helping boost my immune system so I can hang out with people regardless if they are coughing or not. Feeling like I'm bulletproof thanks to this amazing Blender. Who would have though a blender could improve your life. Funny huh?
