Thank you all for this thread I just made my first WW "Asian" zero point soup and puree'd some in my new Nutribullet. It was amazing! This will make packets much better and more flavorful. I was having trouble getting all my veggies in, now I am probably over

Wanted to let you all know - I love you guys already!

These veggie recipes rock and are a vegetarian's dream!

Aside from the IP regime, I so strongly feel this is how we have been meant to be eating our entire lives. I mean, who wouldn't love these fresh, wholesome recipes?

Even though I have been an organic food **** for many, many years, I have never really took the time to think so intensely about my meal preparation. And, truly, it is such a gift to do so now.

How silly I haven't done this in the past as I have spent loads of money at Whole Foods and all for what? Kind of a waste as I clearly wasn't using the foods properly and staying stuck at a specific weight.

Thank you all. I feel very blessed to be part of this and know it's a life changing experience.

Ha! Yes, I've learned over time there are just as many unhealthy processed foods at Whole Foods as any grocery. I stay away from them now (and will continue after IP P1). Careful label reading shows much of it is NO BETTER (not even necessarily organic or GMO-free), unless it specifically says so.

It takes more work in the kitchen to eat healthy but it's worth it!

Re: label reading. Where is a source to find recommended daily intakes for the IP program? My coach didn't give me any of that and I am flying blind when you guys discuss that stuff.

My coach also only quickly went over how to count carbs on a label - something about adding two things together? But it was Greek to me so I have already forgot how to do it.

I read this entire Puree thread and am so stoked I can still use the Vitamix I bought in January. At first, I was a little sad thinking it would collect dust while on the IP regime. But now I can happily use it - yeah! :-)

Today will be a fun day at Whole Foods. I feel more armed with information. Thank you all so much.

OMG! I use my Vitamix every day! (other items that get a workout: Magic Bullet, Immersion (stick) blender, hand grater)
You really don't need to count if you just stick to the protocol. That is the beauty of being on IP. 2 non restricted, 1 restricted/day
Eat from the select veggie list (except for twice/week from the occasional veggie list)
8 oz meat
water, oil, salt, supplements
We can SO EASILY overcomplicate/micromanage things that just don't need it!

That's so wonderful to hear!

How do you use the Vitamix differently from the Magic Bullet? I can't believe I didn't buy the Vitamix sooner. That is the most amazing machine I have ever seen - it blows me away.

Are there any threads devoted to using Vitamix IP recipes?

Being a vegetarian, I might need to count things while I am figuring out whether some of the "meat" substitutes out there would work with the program or not. And, I'd also like to compare the IP vanilla pack with the Jay Robb egg white protein powder I love.

This is getting kind of off-topic for this thread now.

Daily chat,
The vegetarian threads you've already posted in.
The community IS supportive (much more so when there is no name calling). Best way is to keep threads on topic

2. Roast for 10 minutes. Turn asparagus and roast for about 10 more minutes, until asparagus is very tender. If anything looks like it’s browning too much, take it out.
3.When the asparagus is done, cut the asparagus into pieces and put it into the blender with the shelled garlic, along with the Chicken Broth, lemon juice, lemon zest and blend on high until smooth. Add seasonings to taste.

*These directions are for thicker asparagus.
*Thin asparagus may take much less time so start with 6 minutes, turn and check again in 5 minutes.

Just made this! It is delish! Thanks, LizRR!

Follow-up question: How do you store the purée? How long will it keep in the fridge?

I store them in the fridge in an airtight container. I usually make a weeks worth for lunch at work, parsed out in individual containers for each day, if it needed to be stored for longer than that you can freeze it.

Hey Rainbow!!! I'm good - kicking into my 3rd trimester, so far all is healthy and happy. No names yet, we didn't have my son named until a few weeks before either though...we'll figure it out!
