This post is sponsored by our friends at Vitamix. Scroll down to get my go-to Vitamix blender ($439 retail value) for just $279 with a secret rawkstar deal no one else knows about!
When I started blending green smoothies (over seven years ago!), I did so because I need to keep my family healthy when we didn’t have health insurance. We didn’t have a lot of money, and I needed to do something to help nourish my kids and boost their immune system. We couldn’t afford to get sick.
That’s when I realized that I wasn’t making myself a priority.
See, I made the decision to go all in on green smoothies because I loved my kids… but not because I loved myself.
It’s not that I DIDN’T love myself, but I just put my own health lower on the priority list. It can be tough for us moms to balance the needs of our kids and the needs of our own selves.
One act of self care that changed my life
Knowing that I needed to view my health (my life) as an investment, I decided that once my cheap-o, wedding gift blender died, I’d get a Vitamix. This was the blender everyone was talking about.
Even though we barely had the money, and it hurt like crazy shelling it out… I found the BEST deal I could possibly find on a Vitamix blender and went for it. I justified it in my head as I could either spend this money on doctors visits OR I spend it on a blender that would excite me to make green smoothie to help us boost out immune system (so we don’t get sick).
Vitamix Reconditioned Blender
I know it’s not easy to fork over $$ on a blender, but I promise you this one is worth it! There were two things that helped me justify spending big bucks on a blender like this:
- I bought a Certified Reconditioned Vitamix, which is like a refurbished blender that’s been inspected to the max. It’s just as powerful and reliable as a new machine, and saved me hundreds of dollars right out the gate.
- I knew that I wouldn’t need to buy another blender for at least seven years. Not only has this blender stayed strong over the last seven years, but it came with a seven-year warranty. I was set for a LONG time.
It doesn’t seem like a kitchen appliance should revolutionize a family’s eating habits, but it did for us! We started blending green smoothies daily. We made soup from scratch (yes, you can heat it in a Vitamix blender!). We experimented making hummus, almond milk, sorbet, cashew cream… we even made our own almond butter!
You are worth investing in your health
Green smoothies were how I truly started taking care of myself… and I’ve literally blended thousands of them with my trusty Vitamix blender.
Here’s something I’ve discovered over the years… investing in yourself isn’t selfish, it’s necessary.
Now more than ever, I truly believe this. Since our family committed to blending green smoothies seven years ago, we have not been on antibiotics one single time! We’ve been able to fight off any cold or flu that comes through with a strong immune system and natural remedies like green smoothies. It’s also given me the body and the energy to go after my own passions— like trail running and adventure traveling.
