Mom On A Budget New Toy

We’ve recently acquired a new blender from a trusted brand.  I am particularly excited, and immediately tried it.  Verdict? Great.  I am so happy.

My family loves smoothies or just a simple fruitshake.  But I stopped doing it for a while because my old blender (check it out) was not working well after just a few times of use.  I was so disappointed.  But then I thought it shouldn’t be a surprise since I got it on a discount.  Now I am not saying discounted items are not good.  I’ve got quite a few discounted things which are working perfectly.  However we could not deny the fact that there are reasons why they are on sale. One of these could be because they’re rubbish.  I felt like I just wasted that few bucks I paid for it.  I definitely did not get a good value for my money.

The problem with my old blender was leakage.  It couldn’t hold the fluid inside and leaks out from the bottom.  It was probably due to the rubber at the bottom (which I think most blenders have)  not working well. It could be due to a flawed design, or something else. Anyway, my new toy (blender) has a one-piece body (see the photo below), so there’s no way fluid will leak out.  It is BPA and phthalates free and the padding in the box is carton, not Styrofoam.  It has suction cups so it stays in place.  Although it does not have blending modes to choose from I don’t really mind, for the price of $28, I think I definitely got my money’s worth. It’s not as if I’m going to use it for a fruitshake business.  It’s pulse and single-blend modes work just fine.

I’m loving it!

Fruitshakes for a Healthy You

Sugar is a general term used to describe substances that are composed of carbon, hydrogen, and oxygen at varying amount.  Thus there are different types of sugar – monosaccharides, dissacharides, and oligosaccharides.  These are present in many different food including fruits and vegetables.  Naturally contained sugar are balanced by fiber, vitamins, minerals, and other components found in fruits and vegetables.

Reality bites, unnatural sugar is readily available.  Examples of unnatural sugar are found in processed food such as cola drinks, powdered juices, powdered teas, energy bars, chocolate and sugar-coated crisps and chips. The thing is, these are even cheaper than the ones found in natural products.  This widespread availability, may be economically good but health-wise damaging especially for kids who are still developing their nutritional foundation, metabolism, and hormones.  Sugar could also create havoc to adults who have health issues like diabetes, high-blood pressure, heart diseases, insulin problems, and weight problems.

 

But it seems like it is way too impossible to do away with sugar nowadays.  Maybe what we can do is minimize our sugar consumption by eating more of the natural food like fruits and vegetables.

 

So lately, we have been cutting on our cola, powdered juices and tea consumption.  Instead, we blend our own fruit shake.  My family loves watermelon and cantaloupe milkshake.  These two are naturally sweet.  So they need lesser amount of sweetener.

3 tbsp. of condensed milk or raw honey, 2-3 cups of sliced watermelon/cantaloupe, 1 cup water, and a bit of ice are just the right combination for us.  You can modify this depending on your preference. But I suggest using fruits which are in season, they are usually cheaper.  So you are not only eating healthy, but you are also spending wisely.
