What. A. Wednesday. Ahh you guys I’m freaking out because I just bought my first ever Vitamix aka the best blender ever created aka smoothie maker of the gods aka my new bff starting meow. Ok, ok I’m getting ahead of myself, lettuce chat on this lovely What I Ate Wednesday.
Split a banana before the gym, a habit I don’t think we’ll ever get over.
Breakfast was a pretty decent smoothie. Frozen mango, peaches, and banana, plus Vega Tropical protein, kale, spirulina, and turmeric. The flavors were good but it was particularly chunky and gritty. I’m anticipating a much better smoothie this morning when I use my VITAMIX. EEK!
My day at work flew by due to meetings spaced out in weird intervals. This fact caused me to forget to take any picture whilst at the office… Fail. But you better believe this creature of habit had an apple as a mid-morning snack.
I had a lunch meeting with catered food, which is always a gamble for me. They didn’t have any veggie options but I knew better than to count on food and had packed a simple salad. Yayyy for being prepared.
Sad new, my salad kept me full for approximately 20 minutes… Womp. I munched on some snacks I dug out of the stash in my desk, an old limited edition Larabar and some Skinny Pop. Snacking like a champ…
For dinner, I roasted some eggplant and steamed some Japanese sweet potatoes, drizzled my plate with some tahini and plopped a dollop of hummus on top of the whole shebang. Boy oh boy, is that one ugly plate. Good news is it tasted delicious.
After scarfing my meal down at record speed in order to get out the door to pick up my new baby blender, we were on our way. We had to run a few errands including the international grocery store and Whole Foods. I sipped on a kombucha and ate a few fresh figs while I unpacked the new appliance, cleaned and tested it (on a vegan cheese recipe!), and tidied up the kitchen for tomorrow’s smoothie fun.
A Vitamix is a huge investment that I have been saving for over the last few months. I can honestly say, just from the one use that is the best blender I have ever had. The pieces are flawlessly designed for a user-friendly experience, there are no complicated parts, and the results are unquestionably the best I have EVER seen. I currently have three blenders (I know, I know…) and have gone through others within the last three years and I’ve never seen such smooth, creamy results. I can’t wait to see what else is possible with this beast! Stay tuned and stay smooth my friends!
