Blendtec Blends Smoothies To Perfection

Blendtec Smoothies

 

Smoothies in the winter, say what? You heard correctly. Perhaps this refreshing drink isn’t seasonal, but it sure is good for you during the winter months. I understand that you’d prefer to cozy up with something warm like soup or coffee during the cold season.  But a healthy smoothie is packed with vitamins and antioxidants, which can give your immune system a boost. In addition, a delicious smoothie can help prevent the common cold during the long winter months.  Another great reason to drink smoothies is to help detox your system, after you’ve over-indulged on the gluttonous holiday foods. It’s a refreshing way to get back to your healthy eating patterns and fight the bulge.

I LOVE baby food! Ok, I probably shouldn't admit to that, but some of that stuff is just SO good! Of course, the kinds of baby food that I like (custard, tutti-frutti, and anything else that's sweet and yummy) are probably not the ones you want to start your baby on when first introducing the little one to solid foods. In fact, many parents today prefer to purée their own food for baby to ensure a healthy diet with none of those nasty preservatives and other extras that you might find in store bought products. For such people, choosing the right blender is paramount! If this is you, read on for a brief overview of four such devices to help you make the best possible choice of blenders for making your own homemade baby food.

I don’t know about you, but cleaning is my least favorite household chore. And if I could afford it, I would hire a cleaner at least two-three times a week. Do you feel the same way? Since we don’t have that richy-rich lifestyle, we look for a cleaning product to help make things easier. For example, you live in an apartment or loft, and have both hardwood and marble floors. Cleaning these floors require a two-step process, first you must bring out the vacuum, followed by the mop. Annoyingly time consuming, don't you think? Soon we’ll be thanking Mr. Dyson for turning that two-step process into one with the Dyson Hard. When I say soon, I mean it’s coming to Future Shop mid-September. Enter: Dance of joy!

Pizza is the staple food for the summer. It’s easy to prepare; can accommodate for many hungry guests; plus you can get creative and put refreshing toppings to devour.

This summer season you’ll be seeing strawberries in abundance. For the past three years, strawberries haven’t had the best weather for a healthy growth.

Once I received the Paderno Wok, I immediately embodied the role of a master chef. Stir-fry is one of my favorite meals to prepare since I love to load up on vegetables and my other favorite ingredients. Plus, I can control the amount of flavoring to the dish.  In my cooking experience of stir-fry, I never used a wok and prepared the meal in a pot (please don’t judge me).
