What kind of blender for purees?



Recommended Posts

I am going to start purees this week. I have a regular blender that is a pain to clean and a big food processor. What kind of hand blender do you have? I am assuming I will use it long term so I don't mind spending $30-50. Certain attachments or anything especially handy?

I love our Magic Bullet. If I made A roast for the family I would Blend up some meat add a cooked carrot & some juice. It was pretty good.

I have a refurbished vitamix. I've had for several years tho. I didn't buy because of the surgery.

I also have a Ninja, that I bought years ago. It is a workaholic! Great for smoothies, will grind down any ice or frozen fruit that you throw at it. I plan on using it to puree foods after surgery.

There's a new Ninja product I've got in my cart ready to buy...it's called the Ultra Prep. Here's a link --> Ninja Ultra Prep Here's what the advert mainly boasts about, The Ninja® Ultra Prep is the ultimate food and drink maker. Driven by three interchangeable blades and a 700-watt power pod, it can easily switch from blender to food processor to dough mixer, and deliver incredible results.

I bought the Nija Chopper. It was 19.99 at our local target!

Immersion blending stick. It's easy to use and easy to clean. It's also compact to store.

      I broke 150 lbs today!!!!
      150 lbs has been my wall for the past 15 years.  I've dieted down to the low 150s 3 times only to regain what I lost and more. 
      I am now officially 149.7 lbs as of this morning.  Yay me!

      Tomorrow is surgery day...  I'm not sure if I'm nervous, anxious, excited or a little bit of all three.  I honestly thought I would be freaking out at this point, but I'm much calmer than that.  I suppose the last 7 months of preparation both physically and mentally has brought me some peace.  I say this now, but when I try to sleep tonight, that may be a different story.  
      I appreciate everything I've read on this forum that has helped me to prepare as much as possible.  I know this part of my journey may not be the same as someone else's, but having a good frame of reference helps a ton. 
      The most exciting and most difficult part of the journey begins tomorrow...

      Hey ya'll. SO. I got down to 199 for the weigh in but gained it all back right after. I have to do another month of weight management. They switched out the nutritionists at the last second and she said she doesn't pass anyone unless they have 5 veggies a week. I'm starting metformin and Farxiga today. Doc found a little bit of blood in my urine but wasn't too concerned. I'm trying not to freak myself out either. Depression is a little more intense than usual. I'm all over the damn place.
