For the Kitchen

Vitamix 1782 TurboBlend, 2 Speed — This blender has been instrumental in getting lots of fruits and veggies into our kids.  It has helped us too!  We have consumed more kale and spinach in the last 3-months than we have in our lives.  It helps to leave the blender on the counter where it is easily accessible, may not look pretty, but it will make you glow inside and out!  In the cabinet above our Vita-Mix we keep all of our powders and seeds.  In the drawer below our Vita-Mix we keep all of our measuring cups and spoons.  Making everything accessible will make it much easier to make smoothies throughout the week.  A lot of times people will purchase kitchen appliances and never use them because it is a pain to get them out.

Omega J8006 Nutrition Center Juicer — The Omega J8006 Nutrition Center is a masticating style juicer. Sometimes referred to as a low speed juicer, the Nutrition Center processes at 80rpm, whereas most other juicers process at a speed of 1,650 to 15,000rpm. The low speed protects and maintains healthy enzymes, prevents oxidation and allows juice to be stored up to 72 hours without degradation. The GE Ultem Auger is 8x stronger than most other plastics and the powerful gear reduction is equivalent to a 2HP Motor. The dual stage juice processing system extracts the maximum amount of juice from fruits, vegetables, leafy greens, even wheatgrass! You can also use the nutrition center to turn nuts into nut butters (an all-natural peanut butter), make baby food from natural, fresh ingredients, whip up soy milk, extrude pasta, grind coffee and spices, and mince herbs and garlic. Make delicious and nutritious drinks and snacks that everyone will love. Measuring 7in wide, 15.5in deep and 8.5in tall.

Misto Gourmet Olive Oil Sprayer, Brushed Aluminum — We use this with olive oil in place of cooking spray.  It helps us to incorporate this healthy oil into our diets… beware, not all olive oils are created equal.  We use Whole Foods brand (365) Extra Virgin Organic Olive Oil.  I usually use it to spray olive oil on veggies before roasting them in the oven.

Norpro Stainless-Steel Citrus Juice Press — We use this every morning to make our warm lemon water with cayenne pepper.  Drinking warm lemon water with cayenne pepper on an empty stomach is a great cleanse for your body.  We use warm water (half water from our fridge and other half from our Keurig) because hot water will destroy the live enzymes in the lemon.  Lemon juice and cayenne pepper have anti-fungal, immune boosting, and detoxification properties. Lemon juice is great for digestion, destroying bacteria and cleansing the system -it supports the liver and kidneys to get rid of toxins.  Cayenne pepper increases metabolism, stimulates the circulatory system, aids digestion and helps regulate blood sugar.  Cleansing your liver and digestive system will help your body prevent diseases like cancer in the future.  We drink the water with a straw so the acid doesn’t wear away at our teeth.

Vermont Soap Organics Produce Magic — Unfortunately, a quick rinse under the faucet will not really remove the bad stuff from your fruit and vegetables. It will not get rid of pesticides, fertilizers, road dirt, mold, fungus, wax.  Bathing your produce with this soap will not only remove these harmful substances, it will in turn, make your food taste better.

Pyrex Glass Storage —  Reheat food in the microwave (without the plastic lid) and don’t worry about chemicals leaking into your food.

Dressing to Go Salad Dressing Container — Take your homemade dressing with you out to eat to keep your salad healthy. Most of the dressings made in restaurants are made with unhealthy oils. Made of BPA free squeezable silicone.

Norpro Silicone Ice Pop Maker Set — Make a smoothie with fruits and greens to freeze for a later snack. Silicone is flexible, reusable, dishwasher safe and BPA free.
