Products

Vitamix (on Amazon)
Hands-down the most frequently used appliance in my kitchen. Even my husband agreed after 6 months that we have already gotten our money’s worth. It’s done more than blend for our family, it’s helped us adopt an entirely new life-style.

Reusable Silicone Straws
Because I care about the environment, I quickly adopted the use of reusable straws. These silicone straws by GreenPaxx are wider than most, making them perfect for sipping your smoothies. Importantly, they come apart and pop right into the dishwasher, making clean up a breeze.

Universal Silicone Lids
These lids work perfectly with the GreenPaxx silicone straws. They fit tightly on both 16 ounce pilsner glasses as well as 21 ounce working glasses. The pair make drinking your breakfast on the run worry free.
