That looks interesting...if it can blend as well as a vitamix at 1/4 the price - I'd try it.

Please let us know how you like it once you give it a whirl :)

I have a regular Magic Bullet. I tried it for nut grinding awhile back, and thought that the blender worked better. Then, last week, after having seen one of those informercial type things while watching the Olympics, I thought, why not try it with something that's supposed to end up liquid, so I put some vegetables, fruit, a little water and ice into the Tall Cup, screwed on the 4 prong, stuck it in the power base, and ended up with a smoothie that was pretty good, and didn't cost what the extra special blender cost that the guy was hawking on TV.

This is a fairly easy and convenient way to get a serving of raw vegetables into you for breakfast, which my metabolism likes. You add just a bit of fruit to make it taste sweeter. We have had some really bad air quality here from forest fires' smoke last week, and I'm being pretty careful with everything I eat during that time, because eating the wrong thing can make my breathing worse.

The odd part is my SKIN really seems to like this, and it's noticeably smoother.

These are some of the things I've put in it so far:

Spinach

bibb lettuce

tomato

banana

apple

blueberries

cherries (easy to cut the cherry away from the pits on 4 or 5 of them with a sharp knife)

cucumber

red bell pepper

parsley

fresh mint leaves

swiss chard

snow pea pods

I thought I should add that I am using proportions of about 2/3 vegetable to 1/3 fruit, and after that is put in there, adding a small amount of water so the water is coming up about 1/4 of the way around the fruit/veg, then adding 1 to 2 ice cubes- if the vegetables and fruit are cold already, it does not take much ice at all. You can also freeze the fruit chunks before adding, but I have tried just putting a piece of banana in the fridge beforehand to chill it.

My husband got this "Magic Bullet" thing for me as a gift several years ago, and at the time I thought, oh, uhm, I think my Oster blender is going to be able to do that, but this little thing is pretty handy for a single serving smoothie, now that I finally tried it for something else.

I don't think I'd want to use it for garlic/onions unless I had extra grinding knife bases, as the flavor would be getting into the plastic, that is the one downfall I could see. (It comes with 2 of them, a 2 blade and a 4 blade) I also will not be putting anything into it that I thought may have any chance of gluten cross contamination, because the design could make it a little tricky to thoroughly clean under the blades fixed into the base. That is the same problem with the coffee grinder I use on buckwheat, when I was accidentally using buckwheat which was "packed in the same facility as zzzz" and the base is not submersible in water. I got a second inexpensive coffeegrinder, the least obnoxious to use, and I can see that this different design has real potential to trap stuff, too, this time in the catch cup. :angry:

Of course, you never wear out the appliances you don't like.....

    • You're welcome! Yes, I too, hate waiting for lab results. Ugh!
    • I understand this is not a doctor's office and that I need proper testing done to rule out Celiac disease, however, I am stuck waiting until November to even see a GI doctor. So I need some suggestions soon on which test to go for first and what to do as I wait. Also do note, I am 28 years old.

      Right now, the most suspecting culprits to my symptoms have been Gallbadder, Celiac disease, and IBS. I have also been recently diagnosed with pre-diabetes and I am obese.  My Ultrasound and CT scan have all come up as normal and no signs of gallstones. However, I was in extreme pain as my upper abdomen was examined during the ultra sound. My white blood cell count also seems to be high at 12,000 but all blood work came back normal for liver and everything else.

      Symptoms included are: diarrhea
      yellow-stools (Sometimes foul smelling but always sink)
      light gnawing pain in area a few inches above belly button
      burning in chest
      sometimes pain below upper right rib cage.
      Tenderness all around the upper abdomen, but more so on the right and center.
      burping frequently after meals
      Gassy
      bloating in abdomen The pains used to come and go for the past few years as something very mild, but then the yellow stools happen at least four months ago and at a constant rate. Everyday it is either yellow or orange.  Sometimes the stools are lose and other times they are not. Two months in, I was finally diagnosed with pre-diabetes and have been having a strict low calorie and non fatty diet.

      So far the upper right pain has subsided but the pain above my belly button would continue. The gassy and bloated feeling would come and go as well. I get severe heart burn after almost every meal. But I felt it especially after eating whole wheat sandwiches or whole wheat pasta. I however don't feel it when I eat a Nature Valley granola bar, or pack of peanut butter crackers. I also had a chicken and vegetable stir fry with soy sauce cooked in that also had little effect on me. A bowl of cereal also made the heart burn act up pretty bad. I sometimes feel numb or light headed after various meals. Especially larger ones. In fact, it seems the more I eat, the worse I feel. But the less in the stomach, the more the pain above my belly button starts to act up.

      It is usually in the morning and afternoon I feel the most with gas and bloating. Especially after any large meals from the previous day. Despite the diet and work outs I have had, nothing has changed the stools. However, taking fish oil pills has greatly reduced the pain in my upper abdomen as well as the pain  in the the area above my belly button. My question now is, is there a very likely chance of this being celiac disease? Should I go on a gluten free diet to test since I Have to wait so long? Also, which test should I ask the doctor for first, as it will take a GREAT deal of time to pay off each one. Colonoscopy, HIDA scan, or endoscopy. 

      Again, I understand this isn't a site to get compete medical advice or to know exactly what my illness is, but I am trying to narrow down the possibility or what is most likely. If this has a chance of being celiac disease, I would rather know sooner than later.
    • Thank you very much for all the info Squirmingitch. The doctor told me as we were talking he was going to order some tests with urine so I don't know why he didn't mark that. Maybe he forgot as we were talking? Duly noted about the bladder Cancer to watch out for too. Doctor said it will take about a week to get the lab results back usually from this lab. The wait will seem like forever I'm sure. Yes I will press to have the other tests done too if this one comes back negative.
    • http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/screening/ Was your hubs tested for total IgA to see if he's IgA deficient? Read this thread: http://www.mayomedicallaboratories.com/test-catalog/Clinical+and+Interpretive/83660
    • Yes, bone density problems are all part of the celiac "umbrella" so to speak and yes, osteoporosis tends to happen more rapidly and at earlier ages than normal when malabsorption is happening. At age 43, it's not normal to have osteoporosis as you describe so that's another part of the jigsaw puzzle. Time to receive blood test results back from the doc are entirely dependent on the particular lab they were sent to. Yep, it's time for you to start keeping a very close check on the PSA in light of your father having had prostrate cancer. I would think you should get a PSA every year. I really would have liked to see him do a urinalysis. With the prostrate cancer your father had, it would seem a close watch should be kept on you for bladder cancer as well. The first symptom of that is blood in the urine but it's generally microscopic before you're ever able to actually see it. That happens to be the 8th most common cancer in men & it's moving up in the rankings. I know this because my hubs had it. The good news is that it's also one of the easiest and most successfully treated provided it's caught early. Certainly starting @ age 50, men should see a urologist every year. BTW, in the last year before I found out I was celiac, I turned up with microscopic blood in my urine. I got it checked out thoroughly since I know about bladder cancer & all tests, ultrasounds, cystoscopy, CT scan etc... turned out fine. The docs were stumped & finally said, "apparently that's just what your body does". Guess what? That's not "just" what MY body does. Once I went gluten-free, I have had no more microscopic blood in my urine. Interesting eh? Before now I didn't realize you are in Canada. The doc didn't do the full celiac panel but I understand the initial screening protocols in Canada only order the TTG but if that comes back negative be sure & press for the full panel as cyclinglady said. We have several here who tested like cyclinglady so it's not a rare thing, it's just not the norm. I'm glad he's doing the B-12 & Ferritin -- those can be big clues.
