Best blender,best price,best performance

You know the drill:
If you want a really really smooth green smoothie,you must shell pretty smooth chunk of green for brand names like Vitamix or Blendtec.
With prices around 400,500,600 and more,it can be off putting for any raw(or cooked)foodie.
But I found the way to have your raw cake, and eat it too.
After extensive research,googling,horse power comparing,square shape searching,I found this baby and preorder it prior to our house-moving trip to U.S.
First things first, so upon our arrival in December 2013, I got this monster of a blender.

Best blender

Best blender ever

I order it on the dumb luck,sheerly impressed by the stats of it(3HP),tamper,square jug-very important and might I add
It exceeded my expectations , and then some…
Miiighty fine piece of equipment.
So, so happy with it.Powerful to the bone,even without the help of a tamper, it crushes a frozen fruit(try frozen persimon-hard as a rock),nuts for secconds.I like my green creations(link here- http://wp.me/p2iumO-4Z )with no water added, so for any normal blender is a lot of work, if not impossible to smoothise just a fruit and greenery without the aid of liquid.Not with this Baby-Omni.Does the job right away.Absolute best performance,best price,huge value for the money.
Did I mention it was only 279 $.
And it get’s even better. Now on sale for 240 $!
AND free shipping!!
Thanks to the folks of 3blenders, who also give a great service and guarantee.

Take that Vitamix-Schmitamix and Blendtec-Schmendtec!!

Reverse mountain climber

Yes,I just did that.
And it was A-blast.
So fun and sweaty.
Highly recommend is as a part if tabata training or high intensity training.
I did it on 15 incline with 3 km/hour speed.
Beware that when you get off you have to be very carefull not  to let the machine propel you forward.
Just sharply jump.
Like me a ninja.

And you really wanna jump to a six-pack,without the sweat,this could be the answer.

Instant six-pack

Green,raw and naked or kiwi’s galore to store

I just got my hands on 2 huuuge crates of kiwi’s from my local fruit-dealer.
Yes!
A great budget deal,since it’s a bulk buy and also kiwis were soft-ish and not picture perfect.
Here is what I did to them,after 2 hours of slavery in the kitchen.

Peeled kiwis ready for freezing

Peeled kiwis ready for freezing

Here are the naked,peeled sweeties,ready to be popped in my freezer.Divided in individual plastic bags,they will last roughly till october.They are a nice addition to my daily green creation.Since I don’t put water in my green smoothie,I need some high watery fruit to add instead,so my blender doesn’t explode and blends without stuttering.Here is why you should include this ”sunny peach”(the original name for kiwis),in your raw food life:

  • Disease Prevention
    • Fiber: Kiwi provides 16% of the RDA for fiber and has a role in the prevention of constipation and some cancers.
    • Phytonutrients: Kiwis have phytonutrients, which repair DNA, act as the body’s protection against some cancers, and function as antioxidants.

    • Folic Acid: Kiwi provides 10% of the RDA for folic acid, which is important for expectant mothers and works to produce red blood cells.
    • Vitamin C: One serving of kiwi gives the body 230% of the RDA for Vitamin C, which helps heal wounds, increase iron absorption, and boost the immune system.

Big plus-contains all the fiber,unlike juicing.
Anti-oxidant.Low in calories and tastes oh-so-good.
A powerhouse of lycopene,citrulline,Vit.C and A.
Enjoy all the goodness of a juicy,ripe watermelon.On an empty stomach,since it doesn’t combine with any other foods.
A power fruit indeed.
All while listening to The Watermelon man.

Brown leather corset and mini melons non-mercial

A general rule for health is to not eat anything that has a commercial.
Yes to that.
But what about the unsung, non-commercial,non-profitable,humble,cheap heroes of the killer nutrition,who deserve major exposure.?Oh, the unjustice!
So I am trying to right this wrong and  counterstriking by doing my own non-marketable food ”com-mercial”.Make that non-mercial.
One or 2 melons at the time.

M

Mini melons and me

Here is a food that you won’t see on the big screens during a Superbowl.
The watermelon.
Watermelons are full of Water(Duh!).Dietary Fiber,.Niacin. Vitamin B6 and folate.Vitamin A.Vitamin C. Potassium.Low in calories,easily digestible.
All in all, an easybreazy fruit.
Great as a juice,blended, or on it’s on.Simply a cleansing King.One of my favorite fruits to use during cleanses.

M

Mini melons

I always eat it alone or blended with mint leaves.I rather blend,than juice, so I preserve the precious fiber.
And remember:
Always eat watermelon or watermelon drinks on an empty stomach.

M

Mini melons and me

Feel free to send your favorite,simple,cheap (as in cost,not value!!natural,real food or non-food non-mercials.
Because the best things in life are free and have no commercial.

P.s.Have you ever seen such a small melons?

Raw food on a budget tip-eat locally,support your farmers

My raw food mantra:
Keep your friends close and your farmers even closer.
Eating  locally is better for you,for the environment ,for your pocket and for your taste buds.
Support your local growers.Buy in bulk and freeze whatever you can’t eat now.

S

Tasty local strawberries

I just got this gorgeous strawberries from a local growers and my whole kitchen smells like summer bliss.
You know you got the real thing, when the fruit smells the way it’s suppose to smell,taste like heaven,and every fruit is different size and shape and has a bright, ripened by the sun color.A sun-fruit.
As opposite to all-uniform,big and picture-perfect fruit.
Big,uniformed,same colored,same size,non-smelling  equals cosmetic fruit.

Barbie apple grown with chemicals

Barbie apple grown with chemicals

A Barbie-fruit.A package over substance.It’s nice to look at,but doesn’t do much nutrition wise and taste like rubber.A chemically -drenched fruit.
And the ”farmer?!” wears this  on the right when he grows it.

Farmers then and now

Farmers then and now

Support locally grown food from locally grown farmers.It’s much cheaper too,if your produce is the bulk of your raw food budget,as mine.Look for perfection on the inside, not on the outside.
Go for the Sun-fruit.
A health-perfect and not always picture-perfect fruit.
Perfection usually is inside,skin deep.
Seek it.
Even if it takes cracked hands and dirty nails to dig it.

The daily ”Chew on this”-say no to non- bio-degradable food

My rule is ”If you wanna live long,don’t eat food which takes long to decompose…”
Well, funny enough, dead food takes reaaaly long to decompose.Here is ”food” for thought.Via Daily mail.

If your  grandma doesn’t recognize something as  a food ,it probably isn’t.
Say yes to real food.And you don’t have to be vegan, or vegetarian.
Just choose real food.Fresh food.Simple food.
