Busy lives lead to unhealthy lifestyles.
That seems to be the case these days anyways. Busy work schedules and personal shenanigans have us scrambling to feed ourselves, usually leading to poor choices. It’s sad to see, but that’s just reality.
It doesn’t have to be this way.
Introducing the blender – the ultimate tool for fitness bloomers.
I’ve been called the smoothie king on multiple occasions. And for good reason. I make some BOMB smoothies (recipes coming soon).
But there’s more to smoothies than their good taste. Here are 5 reasons why I’m in love with my blender and why I think you should love yours too:
1) It’s insanely quick
This one is obvious. Our time is limited. We don’t have hours to prepare food anymore. Blenders offer a quick solution. I can usually create a mouth-watering smoothie in under 5 minutes. If you don’t have 5 minutes to spare, then your first step is to get your priorities in order.
2) It’s very controllable
This one is extremely important. I love the fact that I know exactly what’s going into my smoothie (I’m making it!!). We live in a world where processed foods dominate the market so we are constantly consuming things we aren’t aware of. Blenders allow you to control what you are consuming. You can limit your sugar, up your vitamin intake, minimize your carbs, maximize your protein. Whatever combination you’re looking for, you can control it. You are in the driver seat.
3) It’s super easy
This one is kind of, well, easy to see. Blenders are simple. They really are. You take a bunch of ingredients, you throw them into the mixer, you put the lid on and you press a big button that squishes it all together. Done. It really doesn’t get any easier than that. The majority of us simply don’t have the time to make anything complicated at the moment. There’s a reason we’re drawn to fast food (I’m not talking about the addicting chemicals they load into it either) – it’s fast, and it’s fast because it’s so easy. Blenders work the same way only they actually do you good. Remember that the easier something is, the more likely it is to get done.
4) I get to experiment
This one is my favorite. I’m a very creative person by nature. I love to experiment. I love to try new things. I love to be unique. My blender gives me that opportunity. I’m constantly testing new recipes, changing up the thickness, experimenting with different flavors, or adding things that simply don’t look like they belong. You can do the same thing. That’s how you become a smoothie king. You experiment until you find the combinations that work.
5) I get to share
This one is a little personal. Smoothies are my specialty (I AM the smoothie king). This is partly due to point number 4 – I love to experiment. But more than that, I love to share my creations. When I come up with a great combination, I want the whole world to try it. I get so excited. This is because I know I’m not just sharing a great taste – I’m sharing something healthy. You can do the same for your friends and family.
These are the reasons I love my blender.
