Processed foods are broken down, rebuilt, reconstituted whole foods with up to 80% of the vitamins and minerals missing! Manufacturers of so called “enriched” products add back only a handful of the hundreds of nutrients they’ve removed (and most of the time these are synthetically produced nutrients so your body doesn’t even recognize them anyway! Your body treats synthetic nutrients as foreign agents to get rid of!).
The $450 billion food industry uses their marketing muscle to tell us that fresh food is pricey and we don’t have time to prepare meals from scratch. Persuasive ad campaigns tell us that packaged, processed foods with additives, preservatives and fillers are a healthy choice that can save us time and money.
Nothing could be further from the truth! Why would you pay for artificial packaging when the powerful antioxidants in Mother Nature’s “original skins” have the power to save your life? Whole foods are not only the road to longevity and health, they can be more interesting, more delicious and more nutritious than you thought possible. I heard someone say once, “You are what you eat.” He was right. People become what they eat. We can not eat junk and expect to live healthy, whole lives. You will reap what you sow–it is a law of the universe!
People often ask how we are able to eat so healthy with three little ones running around, homeschooling, and doing a home business. One reason is due largeley to being educated, another is taking time to make healthy menus, and lastly, eating healthy is made easier with our wonderful Vita-Mix. I want to share wth you the wonder of the Vita-Mix 5200 so that you too can say good-bye to processed foods!
“The Vita-Mix 5200 unlocks the hidden nutrition in “whole” foods that may lenthen and improve your life!” –Vita-Mix Company
We use our Vita-Mix for so many things: Home made juice, making soup without a stove, homemade ice cream in 30 seconds, blending everything, perfect purees, chopping, grinding grains, and kneading dough. All of these may sound time consuming but they really are not (remember, I have 3 little kids!). Vit-Mix provides 100’s of recipes for you and when you learn more about how this powerful machine unlocks hidden nutrients in food, you will want one too!
Vita-Mix has an 85-year track record of helping people with cancer, obesity, diabetes, heart health, fitness, osteoporosis, cataracts, breast cancer, blood pressure and cholesterol issues, and weight loss.
We have loved our Vita-Mix so we wanted to tell you about it! I personally have used ours to make all of our children’s baby food. It saves 70-80% on the baby food bill per month to use a Vita-Mix. Plus, you can rest knowing they are getting incredible nutrients as opposed to added fillers, sugars, cornstarch, and preservatives from store bought baby foods.
Vite-Mix + Whole Food = Healthy Food vs. 1/3 real food + starch, thickeners, sugar, salt = commercial baby food (Home made costs $.44/lb vs Store Bought $2.82/lb–7 x as much!)
As your kids grow you can also use your Vita-Mix to puree veggies and sneak them in pancakes, vegetable soups, or pasta sauces! They will never know–I promise! We’ve been doing it for years! You can also make yummy treats in this thing! We make ice cream regularly, applesauce, salsa or guacamole, hummus, slushies, smoothies, batter for waffles and pancakes (to which I add Shaklee Instant Protein instead of flour), chocolate milk, or other frozen drinks. You can even puree fruit for a smoothie and then make freezer pops for the kids! There are hundreds of options–I could go on!
