My grandmother, my mothers’ mother, was a cook by profession. I never had the opportunity to get to know her as she passed away 6+ years before I came into this world.
I did not inherit my grandmothers’ love for cooking and I never wanted to spend long standing difficult tiring hours preparing food and toiling over the stove as she did.
So when I read about a wondrous machine that could prepare food in a jiffy, I was hooked line and sinker. I loved the idea to save time in preparing meals.
Vitamix 5200 is a kitchen appliance like no other. It will transform whole foods into delicious appetizers, smoothies and meals in seconds. Its 2 peak horsepower Swedish motor has been specially made for Vitamix.
The stainless steel blade, inside the BPA free container, whirl at speeds of up to 240 miles per hour (386.2 kilometers per hour). The container has been designed in a way where it acts like a whirlpool. The food is pushed up from the blade and convoluted back down into the center.
Ordinary blenders will pale in comparison to the Vitamix 5200. It is a high performance blender and much more.
I’ve become a ‘kitchen whiz’ since using my Vitamix 5200. It is so easy to clean as there are no detachable parts to cleanse. Just add warm water and a few drops of dish detergent in the container and give it a whir for a few seconds. Rinse with tap water and repeat.
The Vitamix 5200 is an expense but one that is worth investing in. The seven year warranty is a guarantee that it is well built to last.
I ordered the ‘Super Package’ for the Vitamix 5200 from “Raw Blend” formerly known as “Total Nutrition Center”. This package includes the wet container, a dry container, a folder to hold ‘Whole Food Recipes’ in four languages (English, French, German, Spanish) with dividers as well as two DVD’s to better my understanding on how to use my Vitamix 5200.

Did You Know?
Some nuts and seeds have enzyme coatings. By soaking those in filtered water prior to using them will make it easier for your body to digest. Nuts and seeds have different soaking times.
For more information on which nuts and seeds need to be soaked and to read about other great raw food recipes, then ‘Going Raw’ by Judita Wignall is one raw food recipe book I recommend. ‘Ani’s Raw Food Essentials‘ by Ani Phyo is another great food recipe book to consider.
Judita and Ani highly recommend the Vitamix 5200.
