4 Appliances To Optimize Your Health

travel health

Many of us lead lives where we’re simply too busy to do everything right. Nutrition is one of the most fundamental aspects of our everyday being, yet we often turn to frozen dinners or fast food to get by because we’re “tired” or “don’t have time to cook”. Well, these four appliances will most certainly simplify to Optimize Your Health and offer less excuses to take the easy way out with your food choices.

Vitamix Or Blendtec Blender

These blenders are bad (in the greatest way possible)!

You can make anything from scratch including smoothies, soups, nut butters, and more. With the ability to chop, blend, heat, grind and turn due to each blenders variable speed settings, you will have a one-stop-shop cooking experience.

Both Vitamix an Blendtec boast a great reputation as evidenced by their lengthy warranties (7 years) on all parts of the machine. It also explains why the both Blendtec and Vitamix have such tenure and use with many celebrities and cooking personalities alike.

From Chef Marc Murphy to The Office’s Rainn Wilson, Vitamix can attest to its products being in use by world famous chefs and celebrities alike. The brand has kept its reputation alive since the 1940’s which says a tremendous amount about their product.

Blendtec is just as exciting a product as Vitamix. The Bendtec blender (various models available) is akin to the Vitamix, performing with similar effectivness, but with one big difference. If you love digital/touch screen technology, you’ll love the Blendtec user interface. It also offers many pre-programmed functions, so for the user, it’s literally touch and go.

A Blendtec blender allows the operator to adjust speeds with a touchscreen sensor, but the best part is that you can set it and forget it as a timer will stop the blender when it has completed its cycle. Talk about easy!

Oh, and both of these blenders double as food processors, so no need to go spend money on another appliance.

Omega Masticating Juicer

What’s so great about the Omega masticating juicer? There is no better way to get fresh pressed juice.

Omega produces a variety of appliances, but its masticating juicers, which use a spiral grinder to literally crush the juice from the fruit at low speed, reign supreme. By extracting juice via masticating juicer, the temperature of the juice remains low which is vital to preserving the enzymes found in raw produce. When heated above 104 degrees Fahrenheit, the healthy enzymes begin to break down rapidly, this not providing the full nutrient content.

Additionally, you will yield more of the final product because of the thorough extraction process that is mastication (another word for chewing, similar to how cows chew grass).

Centrifugal juicers, on the other hand, will typically contain a blade that chops the produce, separates the pulp from the juice, and still produces a decent yield, although not quite as much as that of a masticating juicer.

Another great benefit to a masticating juicer is that you can use the pulp to make delicious raw crackers (not heated higher than 104 degrees). There are many different ways to make them and thus, many recipes online.

You will experience functionality galore with an Omega masticating juicer, making everything from homemade nut butters to pasta, ice cream, dressings, marinades, and so much more. Leave out the junk and put in the good stuff!
