Cooking has always been a passion of mine and since becoming a parent it’s only grown. Making delicious meals for my family, that are simple and full of nutrients, is an important part of our days! We make cooking a fun and enjoyable part of every day and love nothing more than sharing our meals with friends and family.

"You’re next have appliance!
So far we have made pizza dough, mashed potatoes, chopped ingredients, cooked heaps of relishes and quince paste. Don’t forget beautiful cakes, smoothie bowls and brownie mixture as well. There seems to be nothing it can’t do!"
"A must have in any kitchen! We use this blender multiple times per day and absolutely love it more that anything. Smoothies, ice cream, soups, nut butters - you name it we make it in this. A genuine favourite. Simple to use and easy to clean as well which makes it perfect to use daily. "
"An efficient juicer that creates the most fresh and delicious juice. We use it at least weekly and make a large batch of juice with a variety of ingredients. Comes with a handy cleaning tool which makes cleaning easy and quick as well."
"This juicer is the absolute best we’ve used. The ceramic material used not only helps to make the juice extra delicious but also makes cleansing a breeze. We make a huge batch of juice most weeks. The best part is the pulp that comes out bone dry so you know a drop of juice hasn’t been wasted. Creating a delicious frozen fruit/ice cream treat is also made fun with this machine too!"

"Vegan recipes and eco tips she/her"
I grew up in a small town in NSW, Australia eating a standard Australian diet where meat was the focus of every meal. This way of eating carried on as I went through university and into my early twenties.
As I started to expand my mind out of the little bubble I was living in, I began to understand that my actions have consequences… What? Crazy I know! I started to do some research and became obsessed with learning about nutrition. I had always loved cooking but I found a new love for it as I started to experiment with different ingredients and cooking methods. After years of living a somewhat over-indulgent lifestyle, I quickly come to realise what a truely wasteful and immoderate world we live in, and immediately we began to change the way I lived to become more in tune and aware of the impact that we all have on the planet. I saw and felt the effects of eating plant based both mentally and physically and grew more and more passionate about plant based nutrition and cooking.
I started my instagram page @plasticfreeherbivore at the start of 2020 and found a new love for educating others and sharing my journey.
"This blender is by far the best blender I have ever used. The speed is like no other making it perfect for all of my recipe creations. My favourite recipes to make using this blender includes: nice cream, pesto, plant milks, hummus and patties. I highly recommend!"

Hi guys, this is Candy @nourishandflourishsyd - a full time radiographer at a metro hospital in Sydney who enjoys cooking as much as eating ;)
I love being creative in the kitchen and create my own version, not-so-ordinary recipes. I save all the recipes I make in my iPhone notebook and take pretty photos so that I can share on Instagram!
I believe that we shouldn’t be label food as “good” or “bad” as all foods are meant to be enjoyed without guilt :) I love using fresh, wholesome ingredients in my cooking as I think this is the best way to get the maximum nutrients to nourish our bodies. My goal on my IG platform is to inspire people to live a balanced and healthy lifestyle by sharing recipes that are nourishing and delicious. :)
"My daily blender!!
I love this blender! so powerful and blades are sharp enough to blend whatever I need - ice, beans, fruits & veggies etc. I use it almost every day for smoothies, dips and soup etc - all work wonderfully! Very easy to clean as well! I can't wait to use it to make my nut butter soon!"

"My essential kitchen appliance! If you need to invest one appliance in your kitchen, this is the one!! It blends, cooks, steams and processes whatever ingredients you need for your recipe e.g. chopping & kneading! I’ve used it to make smoothies, hot porridge and nut butter and I just love how powerful the blades are and how easy it is to clean!!"

"Certified Health & Nutrition Coach"
I am a Certified Health & Nutrition Coach, recipe developer & Pilates Instructor! I am so passionate about helping women break free of diets, enjoy the foods they love and find balance in their lives. Through sharing my own health journey, knowledge and delicious & nutritious recipes, I love being able to show women health isn’t about restriction, and you can still enjoy all of your favourite foods (including wine, chocolate and pizza!) while living the healthy life!
My passion and interest in nutrition was sparked through my own health journey, where I truly discovered the power of food and the importance of fuelling our bodies correctly. I've always had a love for cooking - as a kid I'd always be helping Mum out in the kitchen and loved baking cakes and cookies! This love developed as I got older, and as I learned more about nutrition it made me more excited to constantly be in the kitchen experimenting and creating delicious and nutritious food!
"Super powerful blender!
So impressed with my Optimum 9400 2nd Gen! Such a powerful blender, blends frozen fruits, ice and dates with absolute ease and turns them into the most creamy ice-cream and smoothies! I love that it also has a wider jug which makes it super easy to scoop all the blended contents out of and to clean. Highly recommend!"

"Athlete/ Blossom’s Dad"
Since I can remember, I’ve had a never quenching thirst for the puzzle that is human performance.
This obsession led me to studying and coaching myself to race the 100m Butterfly at the 2008 Beijing Olympic Games.
Soon after, I transitioned into putting the training and nutrition knowledge I developed for myself to good work by becoming a Strength and Conditioning coach for athletes and the general population.
In my time as a coach, I’ve continued to leave no stone unturned in the quest to be the best coach and athlete I possibly can be which has seen me coach a full roster of world class athletes right through to first timers in the gym.
I love being a human and exploring the potential of our bodies through training and nutrition.
Socrates said that ‘No man has the right to be an amateur in the matter of physical training. It is a shame for a man to grow old without seeing the beauty and strength of which his body is capable.’
I love that my skill set can help people navigate the course to their own, human potential.
Cooking / nutrition:
My nutrition skill-set was born out of necessity when I moved to Malta on my own while training for the 2008 Olympic Games.
I had very little experience cooking and meal prepping and I had a low budget to work with so my style of meal prep revolves around being budget and time friendly while providing nutritionally dense meals.
"My new favourite blender
I’ve been using more expensive brands for years and was completely satisfied with this purchase. It honestly exceeded my expectations and I’m using the G2.6 2-3x a day now!Love it!"

"Couldn’t be happier. Very glad I found this massage gun!
Being in the fitness industry, I’ve been exposed to countless brands of massage guns.
Very happy that I went with the Optimum CircuPlus and as usual with the optimum brand, the quality was first class at an unbeatable price. Bravo!"

"Super easy to use
Absolutely easy peasy to do the most juicy juices! You literally just have to place the food, no pushing, no stress involved! So silent! Definitely would recommend if you're looking for a new juicer!"
I though I knew what a powerful blender was. Well... I didn't. Not until I got the new Optimum 9200A!
I knew it would be a good machine because I investigated it before but I was not really ready for how much power it has - it is AMAZING! You can add minimal liquid and the consistency of a smoothie will be absolutely perfect (but always add a little!) and I hadn't done such a creamy smoothie is AGES! I do them everyday and just with one single use of this machine I noticed that 1-the time spent doing it was much less, 2- the final result is amazing and 3- more capacity and doesn't leak at all. It is game changing!"

"Certified Plant-Based Nutritionist"
I’m the creator behind Cook Vegetarian. I live in Adelaide, South Australia but was born in Moscow, Russia. I grew up in central Moscow, and studied Finance and worked in a big Russian bank for 8 years.
I became vegetarian in 2012. Since I was a teenager I noticed that meat was harder to digest and my body felt completely different after having fruit or vegetables. So I slowly started to cut down on animal products and include more plant-based foods into my diet. My full transition took me two years. When I moved to Australia in 2015, I began to take pictures and share what I eat as a vegetarian on my Instagram page, showcasing my passion for cooking, food and photography.
My goal was to help and to show others how a vegetarian diet can be healthy and delicious at the same time, without sacrificing taste or hurting animals.
My Instagram following has grown and Cook Vegetarian became my full time business. I have since created and published 3 recipe cook books. In 2020 I became a plant-based nutritionist and also received a Food & Sustainability certificate through the T. Colin Campbell Center for Nutrition Studies. I love spending my free time going for beach walks and cuddling my two adorable cats.

I am a physiotherapist working in the emergency department of a busy Australian hospital. I'm also a mum of 2 young kids, a very enthusiastic Crossfitter and occasional distance runner. I have always been passionate about healthy, vibrant food that supports my fitness goals.
I transitioned to a vegan diet in 2020 when I began to learn more about the environmental animal welfare issues associated with an omniverous diet. I fell in love with the diversity and creativity of cooking with plants and began to share my creations on instagram, hoping to inspire others to try and fall in love with plant based food!
"Excellent high powered blender
Prior to this blender I was using a (much more expensive) Vitamix but I had so many issues with recurrent error codes! The froothie is simple to use and I've never had any issues getting it started. It blends frozen ice and fruit amazingly well and the narrow jug design means it is able to reach all of the mixture easily (my Vitamix used to miss bits!). I also love the suction caps that keep the base stable. Would highly recommend."

"The Boy Who Blends"
My journey started at the age of 13 when I realised that cooking was my passion! Fast forward to a few years later and I embarked on my carrier as a comis-chef in a well-known restaurant in town.
I grew up with a strong influence and continued to work as a cook throughout high school and college. While I continued my education at a culinary institute in Lebanon, I worked as a chef at one of the best catering companies in Lebanon.
"The appliance that helps me in my every day cooking, the one I call my BEAST! I've used different brands in my kitchen but none proved to me that they were heavy duty ones, but the Optimum G2.6 definitely showed me that it's capable of blending the hardest ingredients to make a smooth texture out of it... Nevertheless, the G2.6 surprised me with creating a hot soup in just 7 minutes because it is such a good high speed blender... I don't see myself using any other blender when I have an Optimum one!"
"Another great blender I use is the Optimum 9400X, with this one I upgraded my smoothies, shakes, spread and dips to a whole new level! :D So elegant yet so calm with its sound cover... In love with this blender!"
"The H3000 2nd gen is not only for juicing but also preparing sorbets, nut milk, milkshakes, baby food, nut butter and smoothies! YES it's a must have in your kitchen! With low speed horizontal mastication to extract the maximum nutrients, enzymes and juices out of greens and fruits."

"You know what they say in French "La crème de la crème" well, translating it to English I would say the Optimum ThermoCook ProM 2.0! What an appliance! From chopping, to whipping, mixing, milling, kneading, stirring, cooking!! I guarantee it's a 100 in 1 machine. The ThermoCook is your kitchen assistant successfully helping you to create succulent meals within minutes for your family to enjoy! This one really helps me when I'm running out of time as chopping, frying and mixing takes a few seconds with the ThermoCook, especially using the mobile app feature."
Ellie Marks -
"Healthy food lover"
I am Ellie Marks from Melbourne and I run a blog called Simply Mumma.
I understand the challenges busy women face in this day and age so I decided to create Simply Mumma to share my experience and household hacks that may be helpful to my readers.
Quality family time is very important to me, as well as feeding them nutrition filled food and just making them feel comfy at home.
I was a typical 9-5 office worker until recent years. I started working from home after I got married so I got a bit more time for myself. It was around this time that I began to revisit my love for cooking as I wanted my family to eat scrumptious yet healthy meals, just as my mum did for her children.
How I first got into cooking:
My mum’s love for cooking ignited my interest in cooking and baking but I was quite terrible at them when I was younger. Being a busy young professional, I didn’t enjoy cooking as much. I revisit cooking after I got married. With a lot of passion and practice, I can now proudly say that my family enjoys what I prepare for them and I am rest assured that they are well fed with nutritious packed meals.
"If you’re after the best cold press juicers in Australia, the Optimum 600M Juicer should be on your list. Compared with other juicers that pretty much have the same features, this one is friendlier to most people’s budget. This important selling point will please first-time juicer enthusiasts for sure.
With minimal parts to worry about, your clean-up is just as quick. Even the aluminium motor base is easy to wipe clean. There’s a built-in juice plug, too, so you can forget about drips and mess.
After setting it up, you’ll notice how sleek and compact it is."
"It is my everyday kitchen helper now - Totally changed the way I prepare meals
The Optimum Mamma Mia is such a versatile little kitchen helper that it makes preparing meals so much easier. Being a busy family woman living right in the centre of Melbourne CBD, I love that the Mamma Mia doesn't take up much countertop space.
It is not just a pasta maker but also a juicer, grater, slicer and meat grinder. My son enjoys eating homemade chicken and veg meatballs with his spaghetti so I could easily whip out a delicious and nutritious meal for him in no time using this nifty kitchen helper.
Making cold press juice and frozen treats is extremely easy too - just swap out the pasta parts with the juicer parts. I can definitely say that I could prepare a healthy, yummy meal from appetiser to dessert for my family using the Optimum Mamma Mia.
Overall, I am extremely satisfied with this machine as it made my life so much more efficient. I have been using the Mamma Mia for over 6 months and I still enjoy using it.
Cleaning is not challenging either even though there are many parts (not many if only use 1 type). If you use the pasta maker, meat grinder, slicer and juicer all in one preparation then there may be quite a few to wash. Just give them a good rinse and remove any leftover pulp or particles stuck in the openings before chucking them into the dishwasher.
I would recommend it to anyone who wants to save countertop space, looking for a machine that does everything or someone who is busy with life but still wants to make homecooked meals just like myself."

"My new fave kitchen appliance! I love my Optimum Mamma Mia and it's my newest fave kitchen assistant! Not only is it so easy to use but it's also so versatile with its multi-functionality. My little boy loves making fresh juices with it, and I can't get enough of the pasta maker too! I can't recommend it enough to my friends or to any busy homecook out there."
Maggie Gray -
I discovered smoothies shortly after having my son almost 7 years ago, as I was looking for something quick and easy that was nutrient packed to help me stay energised whilst juggling lack of sleep and newborn days! I loved how easy it was to throw together so many incredible ingredients that made a delicious drink that I could consume on the go.
Long story short, drinking smoothies led me to opening my first business, a smoothie food truck in Auckland, New Zealand. First of it’s kind! I sold only organic and wholesome smoothies that were loved by all ages and I couldn’t have done it without my multiple 9200A Optimum Blenders. I sold the business a few years later, however kept a couple of the blenders - which to this day are still going strong! My family and I love making smoothies almost everyday, especially my Chocolate Mylk Smoothie - Cacao, dates, cashews and Almond Milk… delicious!
"The best blender!
I have owned and operated the 9200a blenders for commercial and for personal use over the past 5 years and I couldn't recommend it enough. It breaks down EVERYTHING into a smooth consistency and doesn't leave any bumps or bits behind (great especially when you have kids!). I owned a smoothie business and must have made thousands of smoothies over the years and still going strong!"
Olivia Moore -
"Food photographer & entrepreneur"
An 18-year-old foodie with a passion to make healthy food irresistible. I love experimenting with wholefood ingredients to create recipes that embody my "food philosophy" - that healthy isn't so unless it's enjoyed. In other words, you can't shove down so-called "health" foods or bland juices, claiming that it will benefit your health, if you're not enjoying it. It's not sustainable in the long-term, and it's why fad diets never work.
I’m a firm believer that there is no “one diet fits all” - I definitely take the approach of eating a wide variety of foods and seeing what works for me. My recipes reflect this, and are adaptable to suit a variety of eating preferences. I prefer to limit my consumption of gluten and refined sugars, and therefore my recipes are typically gluten and refined sugar free; often with vegan or dairy free options.
With a creatively-driven love for food, I hope to inspire others to experiment themselves - and most importantly, to embrace a holistic approach to eating and living.

"Versatile all-in-one appliance
So far I've used the Thermocook Pro M 2.0 for chopping and tossing salads, heating milk for hot drinks, blending, making porridge, kneading bread dough and steaming buns. The reverse blade function is so handy for stirring and kneading, and of course being able to set the speed makes it such a versatile appliance. The handles make it easy to remove and handle the bowl when hot, and I've also loved using the app to import my own recipes onto the LCD screen. So easy to clean and store too! Definitely recommend."
"For almost a year now I've been selling vegan cheesecakes and slices in a local cafe; all made using the Optimum blender. Given the large volumes and frequency at which I'm using the blender (to make the smoothest cashew cheesecake fillings, nut flours and bases), and the quality of the output I'm getting, I'm definitely impressed."

I am a super passionate 23 year old plant based foodie! My middle name is Aroha, which translates to Love in Māori, which is the language of the indigenous people of New Zealand, where I currently live. I like to try to create everything with love! In my spare time I like to be outdoors, in my garden, going on walks, art, drawing, photography and being creative in any way.
I have loved baking my entire life, and after being diagnosed with autoimmune and chronic illnesses, I became much more interested in health and nutrition. Creating recipes for all sorts of dietary restrictions became a huge challenge and passion for me, showing others that you can still have delicious, nutritious meals, even when faced with all sorts of allergies and intolerances. Nothing makes me more happy than seeing other people enjoy my food creations!
"I love it! Powerful, beautiful, sleek, and quieter than other blenders I've had. I use it everyday and it's perfect!
Makes super creamy smoothies, nut butters, Mayo, dressings, soups, crushes ice and anything else I throw at it! I love it and use it everyday. By far my favorite

Johanna & Lenni
Johanna and Lenni are vegan TikTokers from Dresden, Germany. On their TikTok channel „plantbasedcouple“ the name says it all: they share vegan recipes, food hauls and everything about their lifestyle on a daily basis.
Since 2019 they built a strong community on TikTok, Instagram and YouTube besides their biology and physics studies, where they want to show how easy and accessible a plant based lifestyle can be integrated into the daily routine.
"We are so happy with our new juicer! Since we eat vegan and pretty healthy, we definitely need a juicer. We love our green juices (especially celery juice) in the morning or other juices as a supplement and vitamin boost in everyday life. Previously, we owned a centrifugal juicer, which unfortunately didn't work very well at all. Since we got our slow juicer from Froothie, we juice all the time because it's so easy and therefore super fast. In addition, the slow juicer retains many more vitamins and the yield is much greater compared to our previous juicer. For the price, it's really one of the best juicers you can get."
"Perfect blender for an unbeatable price
The Optimum G2.6 is the best blender we have ever had. Very high quality workmanship and there is enough space in the 2 litre jug, which can also be put in the dishwasher. Besides the many usable programmes, the blender has more than enough power to blend anything. It is perfect for smoothie bowls made from frozen bananas or can also turn any kind of nuts into nut butter. Clear recommendation 5 out of 5 stars."

Alex and Tina, the bloggers and creative minds behind the Munich food blog 'habe ich selbstgemacht'. Here you will find hundreds of delicious yet mostly simple recipes from bread to desserts and cakes to lovely sweet and savoury gift ideas from the kitchen. Our recipes are sometimes classic, occasionally unusual, often a little healthier, but always tried and tested and delicious. We love trying out new delicacies for you and our greatest motivation is the positive feedback from our readers.
It all started in 2013 as a hobby. Back then, baking mixes in jars were the big trend! We soon realised that (food) blogging was incredibly fun for us. What excites us about it is of course the good food, but also the versatility of the job. Whether it's cooking and baking, taking photos, writing texts or developing recipes - every single aspect makes us want to get up in the morning. Over time, more and more categories and recipes were added and today we are one of the top 25 food blogs in Germany, which we are very proud of.
"A powerful blender is already half the battle when it comes to homemade meat loaf. The Optimum 9400X from the Australian company Froothie is the ideal model for this. With a powerful motor of over 2,600 watts, it really heats up the competition on the market and its filling volume of 1.8 L is something to be proud of. This makes the high-performance blender almost predestined for large quantities of fruit, vegetables, nuts or even meat for our meat loaf, which it processes and mixes in no time at all thanks to 6 high-quality stainless steel blades. For everyone who is looking for a quiet blender, the optionally integrated sound cover is ideal. And if you want, you can program 5 individual settings as well."
"Our juicer: We use the Optimum 400 Evolve Big-Mouth cold press juicer from the Australian company Froothie. It combines the advantages of a centrifugal juicer and a slow juicer:"

"Cert. Nutritionist. Creative plant-based cuisine for a healthy life"
I am a trained (vegan) nutritionist and my mission is: To help people take more control of their health and accompany them on their way to a healthier life. To show how simple and healthy a plant-based diet can be and enrich your life! To create clarity in the jungle of myths and facts about nutrition!
My vision is to renew the outdated idea of healthy eating, which is associated with counting calories, iron discipline and boring food. Pleasure, lightness, mindfulness and joy in eating are at the top of my list.
Green smoothies, colourful bowls and vegan snacks are just as much a part of my everyday life as long walks in nature with my dog. We often visit the neighbour's pigs, who always come running to us in the hope of snacks. This always reminds me how uniquely wonderful each of these animals is - and how we need to protect them.
"A good blender is an indispensable kitchen appliance for me. Most people probably don't use it for everything it can do. It even surpasses my beloved Vitamix in its performance 🤭."
"I have been testing the Optimum 9200A for a few months now, which promises the same performance and quality as the Vitamix. . I have therefore put it through its paces and am really convinced! Whether soups, sauces, smoothies or juices - the Optimum delivers the same result as the Vitamix. The handling is also very easy."
"Vegan cooking & baking"
I'm Antonieta, aka vegan cat mom. I was born and raised in Chile and came to Germany as an Au pair girl many years ago. I call Berlin my home, the coolest city on earth. I'm a proud mother to a grown-up daughter and three cats. I've always been a passionate hobby baker and cook, but since I went vegan I've learned even more and become really creative in the kitchen. I develop my own recipes and I love challenging myself to „veganize“ traditional and popular dishes, pastries and desserts. Going vegan 9 years ago has been a very enriching experience for me. It's been one of the best decisions of my life and I'm lucky that my family joined me on this journey.
Through Instagram, I got interested in food photography and it gave me the great opportunity to work on my own projects such as a cook book.
"I have been using the Optimum 9200A high-speed blender for a few months. I have tried different things with it such as sauces, soups, frostings, cashew cheese, hummus, smoothies, shakes, nice cream, etc. Everything works in no time and the consistency of the food is much creamier than with the other devices that I have used so far. The motor is strong, the operation is easy, the device stands firmly and the jug is easy to clean. I really enjoy using this blender. I highly recommend the Optimum 9200A!"
I'm 28 years young and live in Austria with my boyfriend and our two dogs. On Instagram I am known as 'Lenaallesklar'.
My journey on Instagram started in 2013, back then I discovered my love for photography. Besides my stressful job as a nurse. I love the creative balance of baking & cooking.
On my blog (www.lenaallesklar.com) I share my favourite recipes with you. Since 2020, I have turned my hobby into my profession and now work as a self-employed advertising agency.
I love creating quick & healthy recipes to inspire people to bake & cook.

I am 31 years old and my passion is herbs and plants. In my spare time, I love to be out in nature and I am always on the lookout for edible wild herbs. I love to make my own wonderful natural remedies and natural cosmetics from flowers or herbs.
I love to share my knowledge about different herbs on my Instagram account diemerlie, where it's very much about the topics of herbal DIY's and homemade natural cosmetics like ointments and of course the beauty of nature itself.
Froothie has given me the opportunity to test a great herbal extractor. My results have been super successful. Oil extracts from plants absorb the ingredients and the smell very well because the plant parts are very well blended. While the herbal extractor does its work, you can go out meanwhile and do not have to be constantly there and stir. A very big advantage in my opinion. I can really recommend this device, even soups succeed very well with it.
"I can really recommend the herbal infuser/extractor cause it's very practicable when the extractor does the work for you! Easy to handle and had great success with my lavender or wild garlic oil 🌿👍"

I´m Miki and I live in the beautiful City of Vienna.
Four years ago, when I created my Instagram Account, I was in dire need of a creative outlet. So, I started to share my recipes. At first, only with my friends and family, now with more than 3.500 other users.
In the beginning, I specialized in sweet pastries, hence the name Mikis Sweet Kitchen.
But lately, I am focusing more on healthy dishes.
I bake a lot without conventional sugar. For example, as a substitution, I use dates, apricots, or maple syrup to create my sweet and healthy snacks.
"This blender is amazing! I use him daily to make my own oat milk, sweet and salty spreads - like chocolate creme with hazelnuts – and I even can make ice cream, using the blender only."
Audrey shares her gourmet daily life on her blog and social networks with quick recipes, accessible to all. Every day, she publishes a new recipe, made from seasonal products, and also gives all the information you need to organize yourself well and anticipate so as not to spend too much time in the kitchen.
She loves discovering new addresses and shares her travels and good addresses on her blog.
"It's a compact, sturdy machine that's built to last. The blender bowl is made of heavy-duty BPA-free plastic, and even blends ice cubes without any problem.
The blades are made of stainless steel, and their shape allows you to mix both dry and wet ingredients. Coupled with blender speed, they reduce everything to crumbs!
I find this robot even more practical than the old one, because it is equipped with several automatic programs that allow to combine an adapted speed and a duration for an optimal result, whether it is for the preparation of fruit or vegetable smoothies, to grind dried fruits, make soup, sauces or sorbets."

DISCOVER & INSPIRE
"Food is for me one of the gateways to a healthy life."
MY VALUES AND MY PASSIONS
I have been bathed since my earliest childhood in natural and authentic cuisine. I see myself from the height of my 5 years old picking the beautiful tomatoes reddened by the sun with my grandmother in the vegetable garden that my grandfather took care to cultivate. My gentle approach to nutrition, health and wellness led me to make it my profession. It is with the years and my well-established values of Respect, Harmony and Love that I naturally became passionate about a more plant-based, healthy and respectful diet as well as self-fulfilment in mindfulness.
GUIDE & ACCOMPANY
"We all need to be shown the way, but only you can walk it."
My mission is to help every woman feel good about herself, naturally and sustainably regain her best weight while eating healthy and mindful. I hope my healthy eating and living advice will help them find a balanced approach to food, to life, to healing their relationship to food and weight. With the aim that they discover lasting well-being with a harmonious silhouette by combining healthy pleasure, simplicity and indulgence for life.
FULL CONSCIOUSNESS & FULL HEALTH
"A harmonious figure is the result of a healthy lifestyle for life."
"I received the Optimum Blender 9400X! He is fabulous. I love it. Very robust, qualitative and extra with its noise attenuating cover. It is super powerful and ultra-practical. I find it very beautiful and very intuitive !! I love this blender."
"Coach Sporfit/ Nutrition"
After 3 pregnancies (in 4 1/2 years) with a weight gain of + 25kg a balanced diet and almost no sport... I decided to ACT, I enrolled in BTS dietetics, I undertook a food rebalancing, I resumed my activity as a sports coach (graduate). These changes (especially dietary changes) have been beneficial for the whole family!
I am proud of what I have accomplished, and I am delighted that I can now help and accompany so many people on a similar journey.
"The Blender G2.6 is very robust and very powerful. Convenient to use, it is an essential appliance in my kitchen, I recommend it."

For almost 10 years, I have been self-employed as a photographer and stylist.
"Excellent product. The Optimum G2.6 Froothie blender completely seduced me: incredible efficiency whether for quick soups, smoothies, oilseed purees ... and even crushed ice. It looks great on my kitchen, and I like how easy it is to use."
Salma El Fallah -
"Engineer & Pastry graduate"
Salma El Fallah
Born in Morocco, I decided at the age of 18 to go to France to study telecommunications. The little Moroccan that I was was enjoying Paris, a new life, new experiences, beautiful encounters… But I once again wanted to move, to discover another culture, a new country. I wanted to go on an adventure.
Packing your bags, leaving your apartment, leaving your friends, discouraging? Not at all, or at least not for me. Landing in a country where you don't know anyone, where you have to fend for yourself, that didn't scare me.
Here I am for 6 months of adventures. Madrid, my new life. Let me tell you straight away, I fell madly in love with Spain. Because YES, being in Madrid for 6 months, I was not content to simply discover this city, I wanted to take the roads of Spain, discover Spanish life and culture.
During my little journey, I had the chance to meet beautiful people all of different origins. This melting pot, led us to share our cultures but especially our cuisine.
It was from there that I decided to create my culinary blog; to share my love for Moroccan cuisine but also all that I have been able to learn.
Since then, I have returned to Paris. And I still have so much fun in the kitchen.
My recipes are often simple, quick to prepare and inexpensive: ideal for “everyday” cooking.
After the first confinement, I embarked on a crazy adventure: Pastry. I signed up for Le Cordon Bleu Paris to learn all the techniques of French Pastry from the best chefs and I am delighted to have taken the plunge. I can now offer you more sweet recipes on my blog!
"I have had the Optimum G2.6 for several weeks now and the more the days go by, the more I am conquered. It mixes really really well and in the blink of an eye. It's a revolution! Exit the other blenders, this one I will not change for the world!"

30 years old, Vegetarian, concerned about a healthier and more responsible diet, I offer simple and healthy dishes, to make ethical cooking accessible to all.
"I am thrilled with this experience! The products are of high quality and the explanations are very clear. I did not expect such a result in such a short time, I recommend!"
"I help you have a better relationship with your food and your body"
I'm Amandine, blogger and content creator since 2015.
Passionate about fitness, especially bodybuilding, I like to share my vision, healthy and balanced, but always hungry for our favourite everyday cakes!
Enjoy without depriving yourself
"I think that in 20 years, I have had at least 5 different blenders, yes yes! And each time, a little thing was missing, if it was not the final texture, it was the washing, or the reliability of the machine... in short, I was never very happy. And then they tell me about this one, the famous Optimum! I take it out of its box, I read the instructions to avoid making a mistake during the start-up.
I put on my apron and prepared a soup, VERDICT as creamy as I could wish for and my daughter asked for more. The crucial step: the peanut butter, not super convinced of the latest blenders, often overheating, there no worries, this little jewel does its job wonderfully and without overheating. My tests of smoothies, creams, delicious results every time. I recommend it to my friends because for the price it will play the role of a super assistant in the kitchen at home!"
"Culinary Photography & Vegetable Cooking"
I am from Besançon in France. I became a professional photographer in 2019 and it's a passion that I have always been involved. I made the choice to specialize in culinary styling because in 2013 I became vegan and it's from that year that I discovered a passion for vegetable recipes.
Thanks to the culinary photography and styling, the world of plant is open to you and will amaze all your senses.
"Optimum: this is the one you needIt really is perfect! I recommend him on all counts:- Easy to use- Easy to cleanIf you hesitate to take it you should not because it is really the top of the extractor!"
I am Eglantine or Veganica_Paris, an adopted Parisian always looking for new adventures and vegetable flavors. I work in marketing for a large customer relations group, but cooking has always been a real passion and a moment of relaxation. I was already making yogurt cakes and pancakes with my grandmother when I was 3 years old! I created Veganica_Paris, my Instagram page 2 years ago, pushed by my relatives who wanted to find my recipes easily to redo them at home and it was a click, I loved preparing good little dishes and putting them in a scene to make them appetizing from the start.
As you may have guessed from my username, I cook plant-based and have been vegan for over 7 years. I became it overnight, after watching Cowspiracy (not very original, I know). Excluding animal products from my diet pushes me every day to be more creative and original in my creations. On the other hand, I make it a point of honor to make simple recipes within everyone's reach to democratize plant-based cuisine and show that you can treat yourself without cruelty!
"The best blender you can find! You can make smoothies, oat milk, cake preparations super easily. I really recommend it 👍"

"Foodie mom & Lifestyle"
Lifestyle blogger and full time foodie. I love everything you could possibly need to live a beautiful and joyful life that gives you energy. I have designed my lifestyle in such a way that I surround myself with what is good for my body and mind.
I only really started to love food and lifestyle when I wanted to make healthier choices myself and I was not feeling well. In my spare time I experimented a lot with all kinds of products and I went looking for things that made me happy and gave me positive energy. That's how my blog came out @lifewithmina and I really enjoy sharing and photographing tasty healthy recipes and tips to make life more beautiful.
A few fun facts about me. I love fall and everything that comes with it the season. I also love pumpkin spices lattes, cinnamon buns and rain showers. All very delicious. I am a new mom and have a three month old daughter. I am addicted to collecting cookbooks and especially baking books. You can wake me up at night for whipped cream cake with strawberry filling and preferably a huge piece! Have you become curious about me? Take a look at my website and Instagram page. Much Love!
"Blends without trouble! Since receiving my blender i’ve been using it a lot! Love the way it turns my frozen fruit into icecream without any problems. It doesn’t move on the countertop and it lightweight! I can recommend the optimum blender to anyone that likes a smoothie end product! Soups, sauces and smoothies."

Denise and Mirella
Both moms with jobs and busy life. A few years ago we changed our lifestyles to a more healthy one. We both wanted to lose some weight, but most of all feel better and have more energy. We were young moms and wanted to raise our children with more knowledge about good and healthy food. So we could let them grow up to be strong and healthy. That was the moment when we started the online blog Gezonde Dutchies. Combining our company with our part-time jobs. It was a decision which we don’t regret.
We love to inspire people living healthy life, but not making things complicated. It starts with healthy and tasteful food and for a balanced life it’s good to exercise and relax. On our blog we like to show these three things, but also that it’s okay to let go and enjoy a glass of wine and pizza!
It isn’t about size and certainly, it's not a one size fits all way of life. It’s about how you feel and how you take care of yourself and your body. Doing things that suits you, but through our blog creating awareness of the choices you make.
Healthy food is our main focus, we love to try and create new recipes. Or try to make not-so-healthy recipes more suitable for a healthy lifestyle. We post new recipes on our website and Instagram.
And of course, we are just like everyone else with struggles, ups & downs. Life just isn’t always easy. We are what we like to say: echte Hollandse vrouwen, in English, real Dutch woman. And we love it, with everything that comes with it.
"We love the evolve! As an example we make soup weekly, it’s so easy to use and in 20 minutes there is a fresh bowl of smooth and hot soup ready to eat! Not to mention it’s easy to clean afterward. Because of the cold and warm blend opportunities, I would recommend everyone the Evolve."
"Very happy with it, we got to try several types. The optimum is a strong blender, ideal for quick preparation of soups, smoothies, nut paste and batter!
We from Healthy Dutchies are fans!"
"Healthy & easy recipes"
I am 22 years old and I have been working on my food blog Food by Sann for 2 years by now.
This originated from a search for healthy gluten & lactose-free recipes for my intestinal complaints (IBS), when I couldn't find them I decided to make them myself and share them.
I have now been able to turn my hobby into my job.
"The optimum G2.6 is amazing! My smoothie bowls are better than ever!!"
"MSc Nutrition Sensory Science"
My love for tasty and healthy food started when I was a child. From an early age, I stood on a chair next to my Mom in the kitchen. Observe everything carefully and, of course, do lots of tastings in between. That was the basis for a tasteful and healthy cooking style.
"Best of all!!
It's amazing how powerful this blender is! I've had other blenders before, but none that worked as good as this one. I can use it for making nut butters as well! I am really happy!!"
Manon van Kuijk -
"Blogger & HealthyCoach"
Manon van Kuijk
I'm Manon van Kuijk, somewhere in my thirties and a bit of a health freak for a few years now.
I'll explain where it comes from. I grew up with an always cooking father and mother so my passion for cooking did not come from a stranger but it developed with me a little later. Initially I wanted to lose some weight and then I started with Sonja Bakker, which I didn't last long.
Then the Dukan diet came, and I was successful with that. And that's where creativity started in the kitchen. I became more and more interested in what exactly food does to your body and since I was recovering from a major burn out at the time. Although I was diagnosed with CFS (Chronic Fatigue Syndrome) at the time, I was very interested in what nutrition could really do good for me. In addition, I like to see people in my environment becoming more and more enthusiastic about healthy food because I hardly talk about anything else.
That is why I started my own blog in March 2015. The recipes I post are my own. Or found elsewhere but put my own spin on it. Usually because I either don't have everything at home or because I personally like it more. In addition, I like variety and my brain never stops when it comes to food! Due to my enormous passion for healthy food, I started the weight consultant training at Sonnevelt Training B.V. in 2016. I obtained my diploma in 2017 and I am still far from finished learning! I started my clientele, Slim Gezond. And following additional courses to further expand my knowledge. I can now also call myself an orthomolecular nutrition advisor and I occasionally guide people with various health problems towards a healthier lifestyle.
Although I have mainly followed these studies for my own health, I like to be able to share my knowledge through the recipes on my blog.
"I'm madly in love with my Froothie Evolve! I always wanted a blender that could cook and now I have one! I love making soups for lunch and the Evolve blender does all the work for me. The steaming function is amazing and I love the vacuum function of the blender for my smoothies. Now they are even more healthy! 😃 Also making my own nut butters from now on. It really is the best blender I'll ever own!"
"So happy that the Evolve 400 juicer joined our family! It seriously is the best slow juicer I've ever owned! It's super easy to use, doesn't take up a lot of space ánd it's so easy to clean! We make juices almost every week now and I became very creative in reusing the pulp from some vegetables to minimize the waste. I really recommend the Evolve 400 juicer to everyone who wants to hear about it. :)"

Instagram and being busy with food is a big hobby of mine. Since this interests me so much, I also started studying as a dietitian and nutritionist.
Already graduated, working with people who want help with their diet, and I do the cooking and baking for fun! I like to work with companies and healthy brands together, and I like to inspire followers to show that healthy food can be tasty and easy!
I hope to inspire many people to eat and live a little healthier and feel fitter and more energetic.
"Really a top blender! Everything you put in disappears into a fine smoothie within seconds. From larger pieces of fruit to ice cubes, this blender doesn't break down easily. It fits a lot, is convenient to use and easy to clean. I am happy with it! "
