Happy November, Peeps! Can you believe that it’s already November? I can’t. Have you started to plan your Thanksgiving menu yet? Oh, should we not talk about that yet? Are we in turkey denial still? Got it. Too soon. Alright. Let’s just let that one lie there for a while. Instead, let’s focus on this awesome giveaway. Ahhh, all better.
This month I have teamed up with ten other bloggers in order to giveaway this AWESOME prize! We’re giving away this Vitamix Turboblend 4500 Countertop Blender with 2+ HP Motor.

It’s one heck of a powerful blending machine. I have an older model (yes, I’m totally going to be jealous of the winner–no bigs), and I use it almost every day on everything from green smoothies to nut butters to mixing up muffin batter. It’s earned it’s place as a permanent resident on my counter top. You can check out it’s stats HERE.

I had a Vitamix that was a gift. I used it for everything! Nut butters, smoothies, green drinks, flours, soups, ice cream, and chopping nuts. I gave it to my daughter when she was battling cancer. She makes healthy smoothies and green drinks for her and 2 yr old son. I can’t ask for it back when those drinks may be the key to keeping them in our lives. Her cancer is due to Lynch syndrome which is hereditary and my grandson has a 50% chance of having it too. We feel that healthy living and LOVE beat the odds every time!
I will blend literally everything in my kitchen.
