No fancy smancy tools are necessary to enjoy beautiful sweet fruits and vegetables. But often it is wonderful to have some easy to use and amazing tools to mix it up in the kitchen!
The Vitamix is by far the BEST blender. (Click the link to get free shipping with your blender purchase!) I am absolutely in love with my Vitamix. The loyalty they have to their customers is insane. I received my Vitamix for Christmas in 2006. This blender liquifies everything into your perfect desired texture from cold smoothies to warming raw soups to creamy dressings. In 2013 I noticed my blender was starting to leak from the bottom of the container so I called the Vitamix company to see what they could do. Within a week I received a brand new container, free of charge! I had not even signed up for any kind of warranty. A few months later my silly husband was making raw “banana ice cream” (blended frozen bananas whipped into perfect ice cream texture), took the lid off and pushed the tamper straight into the whirling blades, completely wrecking the tamper. Again, the Vitamix company sent me a new tamper, completely free of charge. We use our blender multiple times a day to make smoothies, dressings, sauces and soups. I am so happy with my blender and will stay loyal to Vitamix for life.
Another kitchen tool I absolutely love is my spiralizer! I love making “pasta” by spiralizing zucchini or cucumber and topping it with a raw marinara sauce. So So savory and satisfying! My favorite spiralizer which makes the perfect texture of raw vegetable noodles is the Benriner Cook Helper Slicer.
