My 3 Favorite Vegan Cookbooks

Vegan Cookbooks

I find that far too many people decide to go vegan and then procede to eat a diet far too reliant on processed "health" foods.

Vitamix Blender: My Favorite Appliance

Vitamix 5200 Blender

When our last blender burned out my wife and I decided to invest in a high-quality blender that would last a long time. We've been very happy with our Vitamix purchase. It has really allowed us to incorporate a lot more fresh whole-foods into our everyday meals and snacks. We make a lot of smoothies in it but it also gets used for making sauces, dips, hummus, salsa, nut butters, soups and all sorts of things. For this review I made a video so you could see the blender in action. Watch it now.
