Here's where she had it for a few days.

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.....

    • Do you mean something like a protein powder you could mix up?  A lot of them in the US seem to be gluten free.  Maybe just go to your local store and read all the labels?
    • Yeah I ended up allergic to corn, olives, sesame, whey, and peanuts and intolerant to dairy, soy, yeast, enzyme issues with breaking down meats, and egg yolks, along with extreme bloat with any kind of carbs/sugars in moderate amounts. And very adverse reactions to certain artificial sweeteners. So your not alone in all the other issues cropping up, it happens as our bodies adjust.  I eat a bunch of stir frys with veggies, egg whites, plenty of  avocados, and toasted and raw forms of almonds, coconut, cashews, walnuts, hemp seeds, pumpkin seeds, flax seeds, sancha inchi seeds, chia seeds, and sunflower seeds in all forms including making them into butters, spreads, and incorporating them into sauces.   Most meals are forms of soups, omelettes, and stir frys. I do the seeds and nuts on rotation same with my veggies and snack on fruits in small amounts along with some homemade baked goods I make for markets. I do suggest a rotation of foods, my dietician said I need to rotate my foods to prevent more issues, making sure I am off one one for at least 7-14 days at a time completely. I find changing up the spices and rotating my cuisine base works well. I also make puddings, and protein shakes along with nut/seed milks, and different bases and extract flavorings to get my random cravings Taken care of. Guess take what you can from this and and see how it can help you,    As to the tinging, I ended up with both B vitamin and magnesium deficiency issues, the magnesium one caused a fire like tingling in my arms, legs and back, along with muscle pain. Ended up on a doctors best powder form of it so I can dose it out right, and found epsom salt bathes helped.  
    • Hi, I've gained so much knowledge on this forum over the past few months, which I am so thankful for. I can see how much hell people are going through with this disease and it's so lovely to see how much support and advice people give to others on here. I'd like a little bit of reassurance and advice myself from anyone that can help. I've been gluten free for six months. Two weeks after going gluten free I realised I also had a problem with corn so cut out processed food. Over the following weeks and months I continually had problems with food; fruit, dairy, a lot of vegetables, nuts, soya....it's basically dwindled down to just eating potatoes (not white potatoes), cucumber, lettuce, small amounts of red onion, spring onion, sprouts and beetroot. There may be more things I could be okay with but to be honest I'm too scared to try.  Is this all normal? Am I an extreme case? I've been taking some digestive enzymes and probiotics for about six weeks, my acid reflux has dramatically decreased but I always have a lot of loud noises going on in my guts, I'm guessing this is the probiotics working.  I've lost nearly 3st in weight since this started - which I'm not complaining about as I was overweight due to thyroid problems. I've had loads of blood tests done recently, all organs are working 'great' according to my doctor, the only thing they've picked up on is ketones, I seem to be having a glucose problem, which might explain my exhaustion and weight loss. I also have permanent numbness and sometimes tingling in one of my legs and sometimes hands and one shoulder, I thought it could have vitamin B12 deficiency but that's okay according to blood tests. I would be greatful for any replies. Thanks for reading.
    • Hi everyone, I am doing job in restaurant at evening 5 to 12 during working hours no time to do a dinner. I'm thinking to make a shake but don't know the gluten free vitamin or supplement brand which one is good for me and easily available in Berlin Germany to make me fit cause last one week i feel weak. I'm 28 year old. Sincerely
    • Hey there just wanted to warn anyone that has other allergies- these crackers may not be a good choice! I'm mildly sensitive to MSG- I only react if there's a giant amount like in Chinese food or Ramen noodles, etc.  I literally have a to eat TONS of a the offending food before reacting.  Anyway, I was excited to try these Trader Joes pumpkin crackers, kept hearing about them on the radio .... and they're gluten free!  (I have Hashi's).  I ate about 3/4 of the box last night. Woke up this morning with a red itchy face and nasal congestion, headache, anxiety. Hallmark symptoms for me of high MSG intake. (It does say yeast extract on the side but it's pretty far down the list). So if you're sensitive.... stay away! Apparently these particular crackers are loaded with it.
