Something Other Than Quilting

I'm not a health food nut, but as I age and have become not so pleasingly plump I find myself looking for ways I can do something that is good for me and I might lose a little weight in the process. For years I have owned a Vitamix and love using it. Today I found a new website that is having a giveaway the month of September for a Vitamix 750 which I would love to own. If you are interested I have added the site to my blog list or you can get there by using this link:  here .  When you sign up for the newsletter you are automatically entered to win.

The reason I am interested in this website is recently one of my friends used a a green smoothie as a cleasing fast and lost weight and stayed healthy while doing so  after she watched the movie called Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead. So I watched the movie and ordered a book called :
Hard as it is to believe some of these drinks sound really good and tasty and I am going to give this a try. Since I am diabetic I won't be doing a fast, but if I use it before meals and for snacks I should be much better off. So when I start I'll let you know and what progress if any I make. I have no connection to any of these products other than I own them and use them and just wanted to share. 
Just wanted to leave you with this picture from the Healthy Blenders Recipes website. I thought it was an interesting use of food. It must be the new cantaloupe owl. LOL
