According to the stats, we’re eating on average two portions of fruits and vegetables a day…. And this includes ketchup and potato fries! Truth is, for optimum health, we need to be eating more like between 5 and 10. Sounds like a lot to chew? This is where blending comes in. You can throw it all in a blender and drink your veggies!
Tarashaun always knew she wanted to work for herself. She began her entrepreneurial journey by selling jewelry on eBay. When she bought a high-power blender, she knew she had to share its magic with others. Smoothies, soups, ice cream, grinding grains—the versatility of this machine motivated Tarashaun to launch BlenderBabes and inspire people to make more than just smoothies. If you’re confused about blending, BlenderBabes is the site for you. She takes blenders through rigorous testing and offers honest reviews to help you choose your perfect kitchen companion.
Tarashaun also has an incredible healing story to share. She overcame a decade of disordered eating and wants to share her experience to help others. So many of us have an unhealthy relationship with food. For Tarashaun, reading The Secret opened her eyes to how she could use self-love and acceptance to heal. An eating disorder doesn’t have to last forever—it is possible to move forward from it, and self-love is an essential part of that.
