The first thing I made with my new blender...

...of course it was a green smoothie, and a particularly divine one at that! I can't remember if I have posted my blender disaster on here or not - I don't think so but I'm npt in the mood to go into the gory details. Lets just say, I got a blender for christmas, it was broken in several respects within a week and we could not get a refund. So I decided to go all out, putting in some christmas money and some money saved up from all the working I've done in the last 2 months and spend $190 on this blender. I also paid an extra $20 to have it delivered by 'overnight first class' postage so it arrived yesterday and I even got to sign for it! That was so exciting - I've never signed for a parcel before! It got a serious workout yesterday with me making flax crackers, biscotti biscuits, avocado/mango mousse and, of course, GREEN SMOOTHIE! YUMMMM! Pictured is my blender with one of the two large cups (it comes with two large and two small), full of a scrummy green smoothie of wheatgrass, peach, banana, celery and water. Not only was this delicious it was super exciting, because my food processor was never capable of making green smoothies with wheatgrass or celery, as they didn't get processed to a drinkable consistency at all. And ohhhhh wheatgrass is so good! In the background you can see what was left of my little tray of homegrown wheatgrass after I harvested it for the smoothie. IF you have a good blender, I strongly advise you to make this smoothie!

Well, I have many things to do today! Goodbye and thanks for dropping in!

I love my Tribest PB. I use mine exclusively for salad dressings. It's so perfect because I like to make my dressings fresh daily and that small amount would not work in a large (regular) blender.



p.s. Fab blog you have! Your creations look devine.

smoothie looks great! Love the new blender. I would love to grow my own wheat grass... not sure how to get my hand on the supplies.

Thanks Dori, me too! Perhaps we should found 'KItchen Appliance Addicts Anonymous,' lol! This takes me to 3 food processors (2 that I use) 1 blender, 1 juicer, 1 citrus juicer, 1 dehydrator and 1 spiraliser.

Thanks Michelle. Wow, you've never had a green smoothie?! I'll post a recipe for you soon!

Hey veggiecure, have I seen you on the RP forums by any chance? :-)
And thanks heaps for the compliment on the blog!

Thanks Melissa, I get wheat grains at my health food shop - if you shop at a health food shop just ask, they probably have them.

It's a shame that your first blender broke, but this one looks much better!

Hi Freedom!

Thanks for sharing so much of your life here. I really get a lot from your blog and rp posts. Would you mind sharing your wheatgrass growing technique with us all? I went to the health food store the other day and they had wheat berries. Is that what I'm supposed to buy? Thanks a lot!!!

That green smoothie looks great. I always forget to photograph them for the blog, but we drink a LOT of smoothies at my house. For greens, we use spirulina, which we buy in bulk!

By the way, I tried your raw savoy cabbage/banana/date suggestion and loved it! I take back what I said about savoy cabbage. =)

Oh!! I miss my wheatgrass! Since moving, I have not had the room to grow any. Your container of it is so tiny though, that I know I could fit that here! How often do you drink wg, and how often do you need to re-grow it?

Hello everyone!
I would like to burn a theme at this forum. There is such a thing, called HYIP, or High Yield Investment Program. It reminds of financial piramyde, but in rare cases one may happen to meet a company that really pays up to 2% daily not on invested money, but from real profits.

For quite a long time, I earn money with the help of these programs.
I'm with no money problems now, but there are heights that must be conquered . I get now up to 2G a day , and my first investment was 500 dollars only.
Right now, I managed to catch a guaranteed variant to make a sharp rise . Turn to my web site to get additional info.

Good day, sun shines!
There have been times of troubles when I felt unhappy missing knowledge about opportunities of getting high yields on investments. I was a dump and downright stupid person.
I have never imagined that there weren't any need in big initial investment.
Now, I'm happy and lucky , I begin to get real money.
It gets down to choose a proper companion who utilizes your funds in a right way - that is incorporate it in real business, and shares the profit with me.

You can get interested, if there are such firms? I'm obliged to tell the truth, YES, there are. Please be informed of one of them:
