  One of the best investments I have ever made was in a vitamix. I use it 2-3 times per day in the kitchen. And the first thing that I do when I wake up in the morning is go straight to the kitchen for my green rocket fuel smoothie.

  Packed with nutrients, vitamins and minerals it gives me the energy that I need to take on the day and thrive. We all know that we need to be eating vegetables, but sitting there eating a plate of the them can be time consuming.

  Thankfully, with a high powered blender like the vitamix you can easily create delicious, nutritious drinks that can enable you to get more vegetables into your diet. See it as rocket fuel for your journey!
