For the curious ones: the first person pulled will win the Vitamix and then I’ll pull three runner-up winners will get one of the items below. If you have already entered the contest you are automatically entered to win the runner-up prizes!
BEST OF LUCK!!
Here’s what I’ve added:
NEW PRIZE #1: Copy of My New Roots Cookbook: This is one of my favorites from my girl Sarah B over at mynewroots.org! You will love her photos and recipes so much that you’ll hardly know you are eating health food! Her approach is right up my alley and I know whoever wins this will cherish this beautiful book.
NEW PRIZE #2: My Favorite Hot Water Bottle: You may be thinking…huh? I know I know but once you go hot water bottle you don’t go back. I swear. This is such a nourishing practice for the winter and cooler months for those of you who live in colder climates – bringing it to bed with you or wrapping yourself up with it in a blanket with a cup of tea is one of the best ways to zap cravings for comfort foods!
NEW PRIZE #3: My Favorite Candle: I LOVE this candle in Balsam Fir – makes your house smell so fresh and Christmas-y but I love it year round!

If you haven’t heard your health nut friends sing the praises of their coveted Vitamix, here are my top 5 reasons why this Vitamix will totally rock your world…
TOP 5 REASONS YOU’LL LOVE having a VITAMIX
1. SMOOTHies. That is right, who knew that the smoothness of a smoothie could get so dang smooth. Seriously, I don’t know why I love this so much, but I do. Every smoothie I make is like liquid silk, which makes it super easy to drink your greens without flecks of spinach in your teeth by the time you get to the office.
2. Gluten-free and otherwise unbelievable fresh flour right at your fingertips. You heard me right – this puppy can make super fine flour out of basically any grain you have in your cabinets: rice, oats, millet, you name it, which makes it an amazing companion if you have dietary restrictions. You’ll need the dry adapter to make flour using this Vitamix, but it’s totally worth it. There is nothing like baked goods make with fresh flour – trust me.
3. Super easy clean up. You just throw some hot water in there, a squirt of soap and crank it up for a second or two and wah-la! You are all cleaned up and ready to be on your way.
4. Souper easy soup. (get it? heh heh). But seriously. I made this soup using it and it was blended to a perfectly smooth consistency in just a few seconds.
5. Homemade nut butters and nut milks. Ok, I don’t know how I saved this for last, but I started making my own almond milk with my Vitamix and it changed my life. Seriously. I prefer it to regular milk 10 fold and as I always say, when the most delicious option is also the healthiest option, you are on your way to having an amazing life and a body to match. (Psst – if you want to see what you have to look forward to with nut milks, check out my video here).
