Getting Healthy With Small Appliances From Best Buy and a #Coupon

With the start of the new year, one of the things I’d like to do is make sure I am eating better. Being home during the day leaves me wide open to snacking throughout the day. Something I really haven’t done since I was a teen. Typically my work day consisted of me having a granola bar of some sort.

With my new job, I’ve been eating more lunches at home and it kind of weighs me down for the rest of the day and makes me sleepy. What I’d really like to do is get either a juicer like the Cuisinart - Pulp Control Citrus Juicer - Stainless-Steel/Black or a blender like the Oster - 16-Speed Blender - Brushed Nickel.
Juicer or Blender
Just the thought of having fresh juice makes me salivate. I’ve never had anything fresh out of a juicer so I’m sure I’d want to try it for different recipes! My brain is already concocting different ways to it. As for the blender, I have wanted one of those for a long time!
Grill or Blender
When I was reading the box today, it said that I could make smoothies and frappuccinos too! Those would be SO great during the summer months and it would keep my pocketbook healthy by not paying for them at a coffeehouse. I’d really just like to like a smoothie for my lunch substitute. Better than a granola bar and less than a full meal that I typically don’t eat.

The other thing I’d like to invest in is a grill/panini maker! Making sandwiches at home sounds so awesome! And there are days where I’d like to make some burgers or grill some chicken, but have no desire to fire up a grill outside or it’s too cold or it’s too wet.
Single Serve
Now, don’t feel like you’re leaving here empty handed because you’re not! WOOT! I know that a lot of people start the new year off making resolutions or goals to get healthier throughout the coming year. I have a couple of coupons to help you get started on the right foot!

One is a coupon for 20% off Small Kitchen Appliances (valid 1/13/13-2/13/13 see coupon for details) and one is for 20% off Health & Fitness Products (valid 1/13/13-2/13/13 see coupon for details). For the record, I WILL be putting this to use!

Being that I don’t walk 6 hrs a day any more at work, I’m thinking a pedometer would be good to have so I know what I need to do to keep up with the amount of walking I used to do. All of that walking 4-5 days a week really kept me in decent shape. Now I’m afraid I’m going to become too sedentary sitting at home for work all day.

Speaking of which, if you DO work from home, how do you not become a blogger sitting around in your pjs all day and not getting a lot of movement? If you have suggestions, feel free to pass them on.

Danielle Harper said...

Now I want a blender because homemade smoothies sound awesome and that coupon code would definitely come in handy.

I REALLY want a pinini maker but I don't cook often as it is so I probably wouldn't use it much!! LOL We have a Keurig and love it! I didn't know they had those at Best Buy!

JC said...

We have a new Best Buy, I think I need to check their Cuisinart blenders out.

Elena said...

I would love to own a blender!

Sandy VanHoey said...

We could use a new blender like the one shown. I've never owned a juicer but that does sound great as well. I appreciate knowing about the 20% off. I have to let my daughter know since I know she'd be interested. I use to make orange julius in ours but since it doesn't work too good anymore, haven't done that in a long time.

The Krups Coffee Maker looks really awesome! I like that you can get a discount and that they have K-cups to go with it! I like Best Buy and getting a coupon with it!
