Vitamix 5200

Vitamix has teamed up with ASweetLife and the Diabetes Media Foundation to encourage people with diabetes to cook at home more often. Less fast food, and more healthy, home cooking can be a great way to improve diabetes management.

To encourage people to cook at home we’re giving away a brand new Vitamix blender. Be sure to enter the raffle for a chance to win a Vitamix 5200!

The 5200 includes a shatterproof, BPA-free 64-ounce container, which creates a powerful vortex for thorough blending. A spill-proof lid with removable lid plug allows users to add ingredients while processing and a specially designed tamper helps blend dense ingredients. Additionally, the package contains the Whole Foods Recipes cookbook and Let’s Get Started DVD. 

The Vitamix 5200 is valued at $449.

    I would love to have this blender. I’ve had my eye on one but can’t justify spending the money.

  2. Cheryl at

    Every day

  3. Lorna S at

    LOVE the Vitamix!

  4. Vickie at

    I really like getting your emails and enjoy the recipes.  We just started increasing our vegetable intake via blending kale, spinach and other healthy ingredients.  My blender isn’t very effective so I’ve been looking at the Vitamix but have a hard time spending that much.

  5. Michele at

    I seriously cook at home everyday. We rarely eay out and if we do it’s Sundays after church.  

  6. Britta Anderson at

    I cook 6 days a week! 

  7. Becky at

    I find that eating healthy meals as a diabetic is easier if I cook dinners from scratch, so I try to do that every night.  A Vitamix would certainly help a lot with meal preparation.

  8. Raeleen at

    we make breakfast (eggs/meat) every school day, and supper is homemade 6 nights a week.  

  9. Tricia at

    I’m in the kitchen making at least one meal everyday.  Weekdays that’s always dinner.  Weekends it might be breakfast, brunch, or lunch also.

  10. Sharon at

    I would love to win a vitamix and make smoothies at home

    This is a mixer dreams R made of ! Thanks !

  16. Melanie E. at

    I rarely do the cooking at home (yay for hubby!) but I pretty much do all the baking.  I also am in charge when we need to take food somewhere else.  :-)

  17. I’m a food blogger and love to cook anyway, so I don’t know if I ever really stop cooking! Although admittedly my husband is a fantastic cook so maybe I should pass that off sometimes… 😉

  18. Carol C. at

    I cook at home almost everyday.

  19. Deidre Jordan at

    I like to make big pots of soup (the extra hearty ones we refer to as “Stoup”), then freeze what we don’t eat the first day.  So nice to have soup on hand when you’re really tired, or don’t feel well.

  20. CindyR at

    I cook for myself daily.  Just me so I’m always looking for easy.

  21. Shawna at

    My husband does the majority of the cooking. I am gluten intolerant & just went back to keto/low carb. He makes my food during the week exactly how I need it, if only he would follow the same plan! I have a very strong feeling he’s on the verge of, if not already,  type 2 diabetes. This will definitely help with some of my recipes! 

  22. Brittany L at

    I cook at home every day ands very night! I rarely ever eat out.

    This would be amazing. I have a vitamix from 1990 that I use to make all my baby’s food. 1990!!!!  It finally broke and I need to replace it!!

  42. Jenn Ramirez at

    I habe a used vitamix that is from 1990!!! 24 years old!  I cook and use this everyday to make foods for my baby. It has finally bit the dust and a free replacement would be amazing!!!

  43. Rebecca at

    I cook most of my meals at home, being grain free, sugar free, low carb has forced me to do so. But, I am healthier because of it. Thanks to all you amazing bloggers for inspiration.

  44. Ashleigh at

    I just started the Abs Diet and it encourages drinking smoothies each morning, but I don’t have a blender.  A Vitamix would definitely solve that problem!  (And I’d save money on the $5 juice I adore at the vegan place down the street, since I can make it at home!)

  45. Jan at

    I cook at home most of the time, although sometimes it might not be called “cooking” :)

  46. Ashleigh at

  94. Jen F at

    I wish we would have purchased a Vitamix rather than the cheaper “version” in the store!  This would be so awesome to have.  We often cook at home and having the Vitamix could make for some very quick dinners on a busy weeknight!

  95. I’ve wanted one of these forever, but it’s a large investment that I can never talk myself into doing.

  96. Tracy White at

    I cook everyday.  I am diabetic & a celiac.  I make almost everything homemade.  This really helps me keep my blood glucose in a very good range.  It seems like I am either shopping for my food, cooking, or I am in the kitchen cleaning up.  I feel so much better eating real good for you food.  Low carb is definitely best for me!  I really appreciate all these low carb recipes & the lovely pictures makes me want to try them all.

  134. Carol at

  169. Susan Parker at

    Carolyn’s site has been a mainstay in cooking at home. About nine months ago I went LCHF and lost 60 lbs.so far and have corrected several health issues. I have to cook at home and am all the better for it! I was borderline diabetic and on the wrong path. Now that I am on the right one, I need appliances to cook up all kinds of Keto recipes! This will be of great help to me on this wonderful journey of health! I am so grateful to all the great bloggers who have assisted me along the way, and hope to contribute to this healing way with a blog and a book of my own soon! Cheers!

    I cook almost all the time at home. With food allergies, it’s very hard to go out to eat. Plus, we live 2 hrs from the closest restaurants where I could eat, so we hardly ever get there. :)

  198. Karli at

    This would make making soups so much easier!!  I love cooking at home as often as I can.. Usually at least 4-5 nights a week! 

  199. Jessica at

    I usually cook about once a day, but when I know I have a busy schedule I have a massive cookout on Sunday and portion everything out for the week for quick and easy grab and go meals.  It works so well and it’s so much fun!  :)

    Yes!  I have to cook at home, I just discovered I am allergic to eggs, dairy and almonds!!

  201. suzi at

    I cook pretty much every day!  We rarely eat out as being gluten and dairy free makes eating out not so enjoyable, or safe!
    Thanks for the chance

    I cook every day since I eat virtually no carbs. I want to give this vitamix to my mom so she can start eating more healthy foods at home as well. She deserves something special. She’s on the edge of getting diabetes, so this may help her to curb that problem.

  203. Karrey at

    I try to cook at least 4 days a week. If my schedule wasn’t crazy, I would do so more often. 

  204. Rhonda G at

    I cook at home at least 5 days a week.

  211. Haley at

    I cook almost everyday and am currently creating a blog that will feature local art/music/events/food and also have some of my personal recipes and DIY tips and projects. I would love to have a VitaMix to showoff new recipes! 

  212. I travel for work but whenever I am home I cook at least once if not 3 times a day.

  213. Lisa T at

    I have heard of the Vitamix all my life. I would love to finally work with one. It would be an honor and make me so proud I could just burst!

  214. Lisa T at

    I would be proud to finally say I own a VitaMix.

  215. Lisa T at

    I cook everyday, three meals a day, and then sometimes more, when I feel like filling up the freezer.

  216. Thomas at

    Wow! I would like to win the Vitamix.

  217. Mary at

    I cook just about every day.  I sometimes wish that I could retire but nothing is as healthy as a home cooked meal.  Vitamix is a workhorse that should be in every kitchen.

  218. Edna Dinsmore at

    I cook seven days a week.  This would be the best kitchen tool any woman would love to have.  This appliance would make any meal simple to prepare.  I would love to win this.

  219. Kristen M at

    I cook at home 5-6 days a week.

  224. Andrea Rake at

    i cook every day, fixing three meals a day for my family of six. i would love to win a good blender. I’ve only ever owned the cheapest kinda. 

  225. I cook at home everyday. When I cannot cook, my husband or one of my children cooks. We hardly ever eat out since I was diagnosed with Lupus, I have to follow a strict diet that my doctor recommended for me. I also suffer from seizures, tachycardia, and gastro parisis. The diet i follow is the Paleo Diet which as i am finding out it is very expensive due to all the foods that you can eat are natural, glutten free, unprocessed, with no added preservatives. Reading up on this diet, I find that a lot of the people who follow it use the Vitamix to prepare the foods and to process the grains and nuts needed to make the foods cheaper. Unfortunately, due to my illnesses I am also on disability with limited funds which means my husband has to work at his job and at home to make ends meet. At this time we cannot afford to purchase the Vitamix but would love to have one so that we may be able to save money.

  226. Mike Bratek at

    We do not cook at home often enough.

  227. Sonya Morris at

  230. Tina d Reynolds at

  237. Lily at

    I live very close to my folks so they usually cook, but about once a week I make some baked treats for them!

  238. piedqd at

    Every day, which I sometimes love and most times don’t! Anything that can make my time in the kitchen more entertaining, like a super blender!, would be very welcome in this house!

  251. Amy Field at

    I cook at home pretty much all the time, it’s hard to find restaurants that are affordable and cater to Paleo. I would absolutely love to have a Vitamix, my blender just doesn’t do the trick for smoothies and soups, and there would be so many other things that I could use it for!!

  252. Maureen at

    I almost always cook at home!  I prefer to know what I am eating!  Love to have the Vitamix.  Would be great for soups.

  282. Nicole Tocket at

    I love to cook at home!

  283. Tanya cicio at

    I cook at home as much as possible, especially now with a baby. I love to cook & prefer to cook just so I know exactly what I’m putting in my mouth. I recently began having green smoothies for breakfast, just more convenient for my life now than either skipping breakfast or picking up something very unhealthy. Unfortunately my blender isn’t as excited, it started to smoke and no longer works. Guess it was all those margaritas over the summer! =0))

  284. Angie Jerde at

    I try to cook at home as often as I can. I like to come up with new and unique recipes to keep it fun and interesting. I would rather spend the money on good healthy foods (have left overs) then to eat out in restaurants. This giveaway is amazing..I’ve been eyeing up the Vitamix for so long : )

  285. Amy at

  332. Annabelle Y. at

    I don’t cook much since I’m living at home now (I’m so glad to be able to come back to a home-cooked meal at the end of the working day!) but during the other 4 months of the year that I’m away at university, I usually cook for myself every day.

    Breakfast typically consists of eggs of some sort – either hard-boiled or scrambled – or fibre-loaded cereal, lunch consists of tuna salad (made with canned salmon instead since I don’t like the taste of tuna) or an egg-avocado salad mixture with a side salad, and dinner usually consists of baked chicken thighs with salad. I don’t eat the greatest variety of foods, but I need options that are quick and easy – hopefully this is where winning the VitaMix might help! I would love to make my own blended soups once in a while!

  333. Rust at

    I cook just about every night.
