My mother-in-law Mary is a social butterfly, and it’s a good thing because people love spending time with her. It seems like she’s always on the go. When she’s not socializing and having fellowship with friends, she’s vacationing with my father-in-law, and even finds time to work at the church and babysit Ayva. It’s pretty amazing how she finds a way to do it all!
Because she needs to have a lot of energy to get through her packed schedule, Ms. Mary focuses a lot on her health. She goes to the gym often, takes walks, and really watches what she eats. Over the last couple of weeks, she’s been doing a health detox and has remarked at how it’s helped her to perk up and feel even better than normal. Before she started, she shared that she’d like to get a new blender since she would be using it so frequently to whip up the daily smoothies that are a part of the detox program. She needed a machine that could withstand a lot of use over a short period of time. Since I’m a Hamilton Beach Ambassador, I was fortunate to be able to gift her with the Hamilton Beach Wave-Action Blender which is perfect for making smoothies! In return, she shared her detox smoothie recipe with me. Pretty cool, huh?
