Just in case you don’t know what a Vitamix is, it’s a blender. That means it blends the fiber and the liquid of whatever you put inside. It is not a juicer (a juicer separates the fiber from the liquid, leaving only the liquid for you to drink). A blender is very practical for busy people because it takes a just a few minutes to prepare your creation, is very easy to clean, and with a blender, you get all the nutrients from your food plus you get the fiber too. Most people are simply not eating enough fiber in their daily diet; the result can lead to poor digestion, acid reflux, arthritis, bad skin, weak liver, sluggishness, foul breath and even restless sleep. Getting fiber in your diet is so easy when you simply have 1 healthy smoothie a day. Add superfoods to your smoothie and you can really maximize the power of your foods to get the most fiber, nutrients, minerals and chlorophyll – all valuable tools for healing and all elements needed to make you feel that Healthy Bliss!Now you know that the Vitamix is a blender. But I didn’t mention that it is the BMW of blenders. Well, it better be…for a price of $449.00 USD!! It’s the dream blender of every raw foodist and health enthusiast I know, including me! The reason why the Vitamix Blender is considered the best blender on the market is because it has an excellent motor, it’s extremely well made and it’s guaranteed for 7 years. You can blend anything in this blender thanks to that motor, even an avocado seed, it’s true! This is a blender that lasts for life; that’s why people pay a lot for it, because it’s really a long-term investment in your health. I am really excited to have the chance to give this away because I’ve seen the change that my clients have made, and I know that good food is the key.

An Online Iridology Analysis ($99.95 value): What it can do for you
Iridology is the science of the iris, or colored portion, of the eye. The iris is connected to every organ and tissue of the body by way of the brain and central nervous system through the optic nerve. The optic nerve connects to the central nervous system (CNS) which is the main communication link to everything that goes on in the body.Jennifer Thompson is a Certified Comprehensive Iridologist (CCI) and offers a complete Iridology Analysis via Skype, email or phone. After taking your iris photos with a digital camera or iPhone, you will email the photos to Jennifer and arrange a time and day to discuss the results. During the reading, Jennifer gives you a good, clear understanding of where your body is at in terms of strengths, weakness, imbalance and any areas of toxicity or inflammation. She makes recommendations for improvement that may involve doing some form of a detox (colon cleanse, heavy metal detox, kidney cleanse, skin cleanse, etc) and a change in diet that may include adding certain foods to your diet and reducing/minimizing others.

We have turned his diabetes around (no more insulin shots) and have improved his blood work by limiting processed foods and drinking two green smoothies a day. I as a side benefit have lost 30 pounds and no longer suffer from bowel spasms. Mahalo (Thank You) for this generous offer and for the opportunity to become a winner.

In the past 5 years I have evolved into a whole foods lifestyle. I feel amazing, no longer worry about body image and had a healthy pregnancy and now a healthy thriving toddler, who is also a whole food eater.
Many books and organizations have helped me switch over to a plant-based diet, which includes plenty of green smoothies! An early one was John Robbins’, “DIet for a New America”.
Starting every day with a green smoothie, tastes great and gives m energy all morning
This year I have cut down on soft drinks and
Quit using sugar in my coffee. I have been drinking
More water and I can see a difference in how I feel.
January 1, 2012, I decided to stop making excuses and cut out all meat from my diet. I’ve experienced notable weight loss, less heart burn, even fewer migraines. For 2013, my goal is to eliminate all animal products (dairy is the hardest!) and all processed foods.
I changed my life in March 2012 when I bought a juicer and $200 worth of fruits and vegetables. I had been following @rawfoodbliss for some time and I enjoy her tweets and blog. She is always willing to answer questions and gives great advise. That advise lost me about 40 pounds in about 2 months. It also aliviated all digestion problens i was having as well as horrible acne. I am not exactly sure about the numbers, I do not own a scale. To this day I drink green juice every morning and i fast every 9 weeks. Her tweets are motivational and I plan to inch closer to a completely raw food lifestyle in 2013.
The best thing i’ve done for my diet, is research. Research has been fundamental in helping me achieve my goals of a more healthy body. Thorough research has helped me discover workouts that I love to help me lose almost 100lbs (30 more to go!) Research has also helped me to make better food decisions and be more aware of the types of food I’m putting into my body!
Giving up gluten had really changed my life. My skin is clearer, my digestion is better, and I’ve finally lost my sweet tooth
I have cut out processed food and most animal products. Beyond just losing weight, my IBS, GERD and acid reflux are completely gone and I am medicine free for the first time in my life since I was 12!
I have recently stopped drinking sodas and started drinking more water. And I also started walking for at least 30 minutes for exercise.
I have recently started using nutritional yeast instead of cheese in a lot of dishes that I make. I have felt lighter after eating and less weighed down. Plus I love the taste!
I am currently 20 years old and in perfect health, mainly because I have completely taken meat out of my diet. When I was younger, however, my diet was that of a typical American teenager (hamburgers, hotdogs, all the processed foods you can imagine) and as a result I suffered from chronic respiratory and digestive problems. I visited several doctors and clinics and every one of them gave me a different diagnosis and subscribed all kinds of medication. Needless to say, my health did not improve. I had always flirted with the idea of vegetarianism for both ethical and health reasons, but could never completely kick the habit of eating meat. Finally about one year ago, I managed to motivate myself enough to give vegetarianism another try. It stuck and as a result, I have not only cured myself of all past illnesses, but improved my health overall: I sleep better at night, lost weight, increased strength and energy, smoother skin and hair, and the list goes on. The majority of my diet is now organic and I am no longer addicted to meat and processed foods as I once was. Instead, I now crave the foods my body actually needs. My health and relationship with food has improved exponentially since becoming vegetarian and it also has made me more environmentally conscious in the process.
I have increased the raw vegetables and cut down on meats. Also I no longer drink soda or anything containing HFCS. I also drink green drinks regularly.
I have reduced my weight to 187. The lightest I’ve been since H.S.
Simple – I make sure I have at least one salad every day and drink 8-10 8 ounce glasses of water a day. I have more energy and sleep better as a result of these 2 simple changes. Imagine what a few smoothies a day with this Vitamix Blender could do!
About three years ago I became vegan and it was the best change I’ve ever made. Not only has my acne cleared up, my weight gone down, and my mood lifted-I’m living an amazing cruelty free lifestyle. My families blender broke a long time ago and my mom tells me we don’t need one, but I want to try making nutritional smoothies, homemade hummus, ect. so badly! It would be so amazing if I won this! Happy holidays! 🙂
it would be awesome to win ,,, it would be a great gift too win and i would like too know more about raw food and smoothies thank you !!! 🙂
Since I became a vegetarian I have had so much more energy and a lot better skin. My hair had also been thinning and that has greatly improved with the addition of vitamins. I would really like to start juicing and having more smoothies to improve my health further.
I added more water to my daily routine. And I also added a fresh orange a day. Both seem to help me better with digestion.
Honestly, just adding water was the most basic and amazing thing I ever did to my diet. I bought a liter bottle and always make sure to get at least three liters of water a day. The results were amazing! I feel cleaner, my knees don’t buzz after walking, I sleep better, and I have so much more energy. Who know that a zero calorie drink would be so energizing? Guess it makes sense since 55% of our blood volume is made of water. xD
The one choice that follows a conscious diet is becoming Gluten Free but not over baring 🙂 becoming vegan and slowly raw has lightened the spirits for self and influences those around. Much Love in peace to all, and an exciting new gift for the winner to be 🙂 ‘Aloha
