What is Vitamix? http://learntruehealth.com/vitamix

Vitamix makes healthy eating easy and fun.  Lenny Gale explains in detail how to use this blender to ease into a plant-based diet that sticks.

A few years ago, I had a lot of health issues. My hormones were out of balance. Because of that, I was always catching colds and my blood sugar was out of control. I had no energy and as a result, I felt tired all the time.  In addition to that, coping with brain fog, regular headaches, and insomnia, I was consequently miserable.

Finally, after a few years of searching, I found it. Natural medicine turned me on to supplements. Hence, taking supplements is so important to the integrity of our body. Furthermore, I found out that we need 90 essential nutrients every day. To support 37.2 trillion body cells, we need 16 vitamins, 12 amino acids, 2 fatty acids and 60 minerals.

During my healthy journey, I also learned about foods to avoid for better health. As a result, I started to eat more fruit and vegetables the way God intended us to.  The more I did, the more I didn't want junk food.

Discovering Vitamix

First of all, I have this love-hate relationship with every blender my entire life. Yet I feel it's sacrilegious to call it Vitamix than a blender because it's so much more than that.

When I was growing up in the 80s and 90s, we had the original model at home. I was probably about 10 years old making piping hot soups within five minutes which was cool. Even kids can operate a Vitamix, therefore making eating nutritious food more fun.

Life Is Noyoke

In my search for an updated model, I chanced upon Lenny Gale's Life is Noyoke website. The site is packed with wonderful recipes. Most noteworthy is that it also has a truckload of tips on changing how we eat.

Life is NOYOKE (pronounced "no-YOLK") is the online home for Vitamix affiliate, Lenny Gale. With wife Shalva, they maintain a Vitamix guide in addition to publishing a weekly vegan Vitamix recipe.  They also and handwrite a weekly newsletter.

"This is what we do. We make recipes, improve and get feedback from people. Honing what we do best means putting plants in our Vitamix to make awesome things," Gale proudly says.

Healthy Recipes Using Vitamix

I noticed that when I started eating whole foods, I had more energy. I was less hungry and furthermore, my cravings went away. It was definitely a shift. Back then, being so sick was my norm. Yet when I started eating healthy, my body finally woke up. In addition to that, I also learned to love experimenting with recipes.

The blender truly enables you to make several kinds of healthy meals any time of the day. From the hot soups, smoothie bowls and green juices, you can also blend delicious dips.

"A daily blend can really make life so much easier. Knock out one of your two or three meals a day and save money," says Gale.

Signature Recipe: Cashew Queso

Once you start using this blender, our taste buds and cravings consequently change. Hence, I love using Vitamix since it's such an easy guideline to quickly getting good food.

The Cashew Queso is by far the most popular recipe and easy to make. It can be paired with chips or vegetables, pasta, tacos or used as a soup base. Best of all, it's dairy-free.

Ingredients:

Almond milk - 240 ml (1 cup)

Nutritional yeast - 60 ml (1/4 cup)

Raw almonds - 120 ml (1/2 cup)

Raw cashews - 120 ml (1/2 cup)

Red bell pepper - 1 whole, de-seeded obviously

Kosher salt - 10 ml (2 tsp)

Garlic powder - 3 ml (1/2 tsp) (couple cloves fresh garlic would work)

Onion powder - 10 ml (2 tsp) (or 1/2 onion, sautéed)

Crushed red pepper - a few shakes (to taste)

Instructions:

  1. Add liquid ingredients to your Vitamix.
  2. Then add rest of ingredients.
  3. Start blender on low, ramp to high.
  4. Blend on high for 6 minutes (or use preprogrammed 'Soup' setting).
  5. Serve.

Types Of Vitamix

Especially relevant is the fact that Vitamix has an extensive series of assorted models.

  1. Legacy Series - the C and G-Series has classic styles with control options and varied container sizes.
  2. Personal Series - meant for single and double servings, this is the perfect size for small meal portions.
  3. Ascent Series

Ebook: The Perfect Mix

"It's not a recipe book. It provides a 3-step process for easing in into a plant-based lifestyle. With the help of Vitamix," clarifies Gale. "How do we break down that barrier? How do we get through that? That's what we go through in this book."

Gale further explains that The Perfect Mix is not something that you have to invest in. "It was written for you to sit down and be done with it in under an hour. It's like having a conversation with me. "

Normally sold for $2.99 on Amazon, the ebook will be given free this week until Friday, April 21st, 2017.

Lenny Gale left a promising career in corporate financial consulting and the CPA license he worked so hard to get to start Life is NOYOKE in 2012. Today, he is in charge of all things Vitamix, including maintaining the Vitamix buyer's guide. His favorite foods are green olives, falafel, and scotch.
