Then to not disturb the oil too much, gently drop the immersion blender blades to the bottom of the container before you start the motor. The action will start to pull the oil down to the blades. When you see mayo forming, you then slowly bring the blades up a little at a time until all is emulsified. It has worked every time for me.

    My immersion blender is one of my most used appliances. Main uses: Puree soup or beans right in the cooking pot, make a quick soft serve or avocado pudding, small batches of hummus.
    So, is....is making homemade mayo something the Vitamix cannot do, Leez....?

    It can do it, but you've got to do the drizzle thing while the blender is running. And then you have to get the mayo out from around the blades, which is messy and tedious. The immersion blender is superior for this in my view.

    But I've found this little gadget very helpful for getting stuff out of the vitamix:

    Thanks, Leez!

    If I can find one that is reliable for the long haul -- as in, has internal parts that do not break under strain, or internal parts that are plastic, or cheaply made in general......and is within my budget, I'll likely spring for one.

    I want to make homemade butter, too. And whipped cream. Both those things also require emulsification -- emulsification that has to be done with an immersion blender, lol.

    Dangit. Hahaa...

    Well, at least I get to fulfill my lifelong dream (since like the age of 12 lol) of having one now!

    Aaahhh, the benefit of being "a grown-up"....you can buy things you once wanted your mom and dad to buy you when you were a kid. AND you can eat chocolate cake for dinner, each and every single night! Nobody can tell you 'no,' right??

    (Ofc, yes...your scale will tell you 'no' if you do that, of course. But don't tell that to my inner 12-year old. ...lol)

    I make my whipped cream with a regular hand mixer. I have a Cuisinart immersion blender. If I recall it wasn’t expensive and it works great.

    Happy Monday Lovelies!

    So, I am officially in P3! Wow, what a relief! I survived the transition days just fine and had a nice non-P2 dinner last night. Couldn't eat much as my "capacity" is down from eating so little for almost 5 weeks. But, everything was delicious and healthy. I won't torment you with the details as most of you are still in P2...

    Today, TESS was Up just a bit, but not out of character for what's been going on for the last several weeks. Today I will focus on eating healthy fats and getting my calories up. Haven't been hungry today, yet. I will eat when I feel I have room or want to. Coffee with HWC this morning was Divine!

    Thinking I will move over to the LL Monthly Support Group now that I'm in P3, so as not to torment you all in your P2 journey

    Good losing to everyone! Have a wonderful week!

    FYI:

    I'm testing out my latest anti-inflammatory tactic.

    This will hopefully help me blow past this latest little stall.

    Simeons allowed aspirin; this will hopefully be "the" thing that offsets any inflammation from Histamine Intolerance.

    If it works, I'll be super happy.

    Hey everyone. I'm here, just a busy few days. I'm still chipping away. I'm about 5 pounds from my goal so it's slow going :-)
    Poor sleep last night and I am having trouble getting going today. At least the ice and snow are melting!

    Tracy, those last 5 lbs are a killer! Congrats on your progress so far and hope you get those last 5 off. How many more days do you have? When I’m close to goal I usually have a looong stall...and it really sucks.

    I had a .8 drop this morning. Honestly, I was shocked, but extremely happy.

    Leez, I think I’m at a good dose with the slight adjustment up. It’s kind of weird because on past rounds I typically have to do a TEENY adjustment down, so strange that I’m adjusting up on this round. I do IM so supposedly I shouldn’t have to adjust at all. This was the first time I mixed with 20ml, I usually do 10. I didn’t like mixing this way because I had to refill the mixing syringe so many times to get the 20 ml so it made me nervous...I felt like there was more room for error so wondering if the mix is off slightly. If I mix that way again I think I will try to get a larger mixing syringe. I’m pulling to 55 right now, so I believe that means I’m injecting about 137iu?

    Glad you happened on a good dose, and nice drop to go with it.

    I’m pulling to 55 right now, so I believe that means I’m injecting about 137iu?
    5000iu divided by 20ml = 250iu

    136 divided by 250 = .552
    137 divided by 250 = .548
    138 divided by 250 = .544

    So yes, pulling to 55 puts you the closest to 137iu dose.
