Vitamix :: My Favorite Blender & Some Price Comparisons

vitamix-64

As many of you know, I absolutely LOVE my Vitamix! We make smoothies constantly {Especially our yummy green smoothie}. Plus, we use it to make soups and sorbet!  There are many more things you can do with a Vitamix, but those are our most common uses.

I have hilighted sales before, but have some friends who are interested so I thought I’d do some hunting to find the best deal on a Vitamix.

Before I move on, some may refer to Blendtec saying they’re better.  In my honest opinion they’re not.  A few of my personal {not professional} reasons are:

  • They are louder
  • You are encouraged to only operate with the canister 1/2 full {Vitamix can be full}
  • You can vary your speed with a Vitamix depending on what you want to do

Ok, on to the prices of Vitamix!

vitamix-bundle

I got mine on a Special Value on QVC so it was quite a deal. But, QVC does have a pretty good price right now without the special value. Plus, you can split it into 5 easy payments which makes a big purchase like this a little easier to take!

QVC

Vitamix Creations 48 oz. 15-in-1 2-Speed Blender w/Dry Container ,pictured above, is only $439.90 with Free S&H.  5 Easy Payments of $87.98 + tax.
*Note: you do NOT need a dry container to blend dry ingredients {like making flour}. The regular canister with a wet blade will do just fine.  The dry container will grind the dry ingredients a little finer and faster though.

You can also get the Vitamix Creations GC 64oz. 12-in-1 Variable Speed Blender for just $439.00. This does not come with the dry container but does have a larger {64 oz} container.  The price is the same so you’re either paying for a bigger container or a dry one.

Or, you can opt for the Vitamix Creations II 48 oz. 12-in-1 Variable Speed Blender for just $399.

Amazon

Amazon currently has the Vitamix Professional Series 200 Blender with a 64oz. container for $444.95

vitamix-old

or you can get the Vitamix 1300 TurboBlend 4500 for just $378.95.  Note that this one {pictured above} does not have the variable control dial int he middle which allows you to speed up or slow down the blender.  I can’t tell you if this is a good or bad thing because I have the newer one with variable control.  I will say that I do use mine every time, but, if you’re really wanting to save some money this is one way to do it!

Costco

Costco carries Vitamix from time to time.  Right now, their price is the highest.

Vitamix 5200 Super Package with the wet and dry container for $499.99

 

These prices all change from time to time and any time I see an amazing deal I am sure to post it!  Right now, QVC seems to be the best deal!

Do you have a Vitamix? What’s your favorite recipe?

Naturally Heal Common Ailments With Manuka Honey

A friend recently turned me on to Manuka Honey and I am oh-so-glad she did!  Funny how things work out… about 2 days after she told me about it, one of my kiddos came down with a sore throat and cold.  Off to Mother’s Market I went to get some Manuka Honey.

Manuka Honey is amazing!  Use it if you have a sore throat, cough, cold, even gastro-intestinal disorders such as acid reflux, upset stomach, stomach ulcers, peptic ulcer,  irritable bowel syndrome, and heartburn to name a few.  It can also be used on your skin for cuts, burns, acne and more!

From the research I’ve done, I’ve found that you need to buy Organic Manuka Honey that says, “16+” or higher.  The higher the number, the more potent.  Anything less is not going to have as efficient health benefits.  Just take 1/2 – 1 tsp. several times throughout the day if you’re sick or once a day to maintain health!   As a mom who wants to provide the best possible, natural, care to my children, I can honestly say that I felt like this helped my son get better quicker.  I like to avoid the Dr. as much as possible because I know they’ll just push antibiotics that I know our bodies don’t necessarily need 😉

The reason I chose Wedderspoon Raw Organic Manuka Honey:

North America’s number One Organically Certified Manuka Honey suppliers.  Their authentic, manuka honey is recognized throughout North America for its outstanding quality and consistency. Manuka Honey is know all over the world for its extraordinarily powerful healing benefits At Wedderspoon Organic, we bring you the finest in organic products because we know quality matters. We proudly support the OMA Mark (Organic Manuka Active) Chemical and Pesticide Free honey Antibiotic and GMO Free honey. Never feeding the bees sugar. Hives are made from environmentally friendly material. Each jar is traceable back to master beekeeper Area of forage is 5km from intensive farming. Activity in our honeys has been reached naturally & has not been increased by man.

I bought mine at Mother’s Market.  It is also available on Amazon and I’m sure other health food stores carry it.  I paid about $35 and that’s the price on Amazon.  I would imagine you don’t really want “cheap” Manuka Honey… you’ll be getting what you pay for!  It’s a decent size jar that will last us a long time!

Do you use Manuka Honey?  What ailments has it helped you with?

30 Days to a Healthier You, Day 30: You Can Do This!

We made it!  It’s day 30 in our 30 Days to a Healthier You Series!  I hope you’re all on the road to being healthy.  I challenge you all to go back through each day and see how you’re coming along.  Are there things that you didn’t feel like doing?  Or things you’re really good at?  Don’t let this stop here!

Moderate: Being within reasonable limits; not excessive or extreme

Moderation is not to give you guys a free chance to lessen your exercise or increase your sugar!  This is to remind you to ease into this.  We all want the end result to be extreme health.  But I don’t want you all to cut every single bad thing out right this second and work out for 2 hours a day.  If you jump in like that, you’re likely to give up in about a week  😉

Enjoy life!  Have a glass of wine or a piece of chocolate.  Just be sure that it stays as “moderation” and does not become a habit.  And remember, you’ll get the most joy out of life when you’re living the life God intended you to.  A life where you’re healthy and can live long enough to see your babies, grandbabies and great-grandbabies!  A life where you have the energy to go out and serve others.  This life is way to short to sit at home on your computer or TV!  Love yourself, love others, bless someone.
