This is totally random but my blender broke



I took today to focus on taking care of myself. While I didn’t get a workout in, I did focus on destressing. The boys all had a good day, making my efforts a bit easier and I’m grateful for that.

One of my goals for this year is to improve my diet. I love fruit but I have a hard time with green veggies, so I get around that by making smoothies. Unfortunately, my blender died yesterday. I put my smoothie together and when I went to blend it, the blender wouldn’t turn on. Fortunately, it was under warranty through Best Buy and I was able to get it replaced. I had to get something different cause they discontinued what I’d been using.

Anyway, Emmett and I did some research and then went to pick it up.

I’m super stoked about this and it’s going to make my life a little bit easier. My routine for the last year or so was to make a smoothie at 11 AM and a second one at 4 PM. It took time to make each one because I measured everything out and there is kind of a lot of everything in each smoothie.

Anyway, my new blender is pretty amazing. I can now make one batch a day because I can remove all the oxygen from container, allowing the smoothie to be stored for 24 hours. This means I can make it in the morning or even the night before and it stays fresh.

I’ll be honest, if I hadn’t had the warranty, which translated to in store credit, I wouldn’t own something like this. That said, sometimes it’s the little things that make life easier. I’m really excited to try some new recipes when I go grocery shopping, hopefully next week.

For those wondering, this is what I currently put in my smoothies.

  • Spinach
  • Kale
  • Broccoli
  • Chard
  • Chia Seeds
  • Blueberries
  • Banana
  • Plain Full Fat Greek Yogurt
  • Fresh Mint
  • Fresh Almonds
  • Dark Chocolate
  • Unsweetened Almond Milk
  • Oatmeal

It’s really good and I’m looking to increase the veggies this year. This is pretty much a full meal for me and I crave it everyday. I know it’s weird but I would eat this over ice cream any day.

Anyway, that was my big adventure today. Pretty boring right? I assure you, as an Autism Dad, pretty boring is perfectly okay with me. ☺
