I just got a VitaMix blender from Costco the other day and I am loving it! I am trying to follow a more vegatarian type lifestyle and this is defintley making it easier! I got it about a week ago and have used it 2-3 times each day! This morning I grinded my own wheat and made pancakes,oil free, with agave nectar for the syrup. My kids loved them. Then we made a shake that consisted of carrots, apples, grapes, spinach, limes, pineapple, and ice. Very Yummy! Later for lunch I threw in a few things and made a simple salsa. I have really enjoyed it so far! I recommend it to anyone!
