Happy Wednesday! I can’t decide if this week is flying by .. or if it’s only Wednesday.
Today’s What I Ate Wednesday eats are from last Thursday. It was a GREAT day because it’s the day I brought home my Vitamix! It was also a great day of eats, as I was wined and dined at the Vitamix store in Solon, Ohio. I pretty much had a four-course Vitamix-made dinner!
The day started pretty typical. Egg white oats with flaxseed and cinnamon and brewer’s yeast.
I had a lunch meeting to go to, so I was able to have a pretty good lunch. Fish, salad, pita chips, hummus and veggies.
That afternoon for a snack I had some nuts and an apple.
And then it was time for the glorious Vitamix evening. We started off with some frose. It was delicious – I don’t even remember all that was in it but it was dangerous. Gin, bitters, wine? Oh yea, and almond milk!
They had the most gorgeous assortment of cheese and veggies and dips.
And we also were treated to black bean quinoa sliders with an avocado dipping sauce. Not only was the sauce made in the blender, but also the burgers!
Dessert was fruit and a chocolate mousse.
Said chocolate mousse. And strawberry “not” ice cream – it was strawberries, yogurt and vanilla! (the empty cup is behind the mousse)
And that was about it. It was so good! And since I was able to go home with my very own new Vitamix Ascent Series blender, I can’t wait to make so many of these things!!
Some questions for you for today’s What I Ate Wednesday:
- Do you have a Vitamix? What do you make in it? I need ideas!
- What’s something good that you’ve made recently?

I LOVE my Vitamix and use it everyday for my smoothies. I haven’t tried much else with it though, I love all the eats you had at the party though!
I just made black bean soup in it and it was great!
Those snacks look so good! I don’t have a Vitamix yet but I’d really like to get one. I know I’d get a lot of use out of it but they’re just so pricy!
Hold up… there’s a Vitamix store dinner?! I’m so freaking jealous. I’ve had my Vitamix for 5 years now and it’s a staple. You’re going to LOVE it!
The store has so many cool events including happy hours!! It is amazing. Do you have a favorite Vitamix recipe or thing to make?
I make smoothie bowls most often. I also really love making creamy tomato soup, but using tofu to give it the texture (and protein!).
