    To those of you who have a Magic Bullet: Have you tried chopping onions in it? I am having trouble. It either purees it or keeps it whole. I did pesto last night, which turned out great, but I ended up with a big chunk of unchopped onion in it.

    Are you quartering the onion first? Most food processors need to have a big solid item like that broken down a little first.

    It was a big red onion and I only put 1/6 in it. In the infomercial they put a whole small onion, not quartered or anything. We all know how truthful infomercials are. I figure if I have to prechop the onion before putting it in the magic bullet, I might as well do the whole job myself.

    I have a magic bullet (kind of a pornographic name for a kitchen appliance ) anyway, I am less than impressed, as seems to either pulverize things into mush, or leave chunks. Someone told me I was using the wrong blade, so I will switch it up and see if I get better results. But so far

    I did learn there is a reason not to use the larger cup when it says to use the smaller cup. I thought I could make a bigger batch of tuna salad by using the large cup but it didn't quite mix all of the tuna. It did cut the onion up pretty well though. The tuna was good but I can see why using the smaller cup would mix things up easier.

    Ana, mine also pureed something I didn't want it to (my black bean dip) instead of making it chunky. But I blame myself because it said one or two quick pulses and I did it too many times. I'm still learning. Today I plan to make the mushroom recipe in the book. I'll let you know how it turns out.

    Also, the recipes are specific about placing the ingredients into the cups in a certain order. I guess items mix easier according to how they're placed.

    My Chiropractor did some deep tissue massage on the wrist, and adjusted it, then ultrasound treatment, and electrotherapy.

    Oh man. I haven't felt this good in months. Not only does my wrist not hurt when I move it, but my husband and I think that I have a little bit more range of motion.

    I'm so excited!
    I have to admit that my mind must have gone in the same direction that DesertRose's did!!!




    I, too, am an owner of the Magic Bullet. All I can say is that it takes practice, practice, practice.

    It was like a miracle!! I still have flair ups but never, never to the degree I was suffering before I went to him.

    My chiropractor is also, mmmm cant' quite remember, but he's a sports injury specialist too.
    Vonna, I could have written this post. I was almost bedridden due to fibromyalgia and through chiropractic care and a supplement shake I drink, my flareups are less severe and less frequent.

    I feel for you as I know what Fibro is like and how little it is understood. Some doctors don't even believe in it.

    I wish you continued good health and no more flareups. I have been having one now for almost 2 weeks. And I really think its a combo of stress and weather.
