I heard coffee filters work pretty good to, if you run out of cheese cloth

There should be a soup setting or recommended time to run the Vitamix to make soup, the blades do warm it up. I like making cream of asparagus soup. Boil the asparagus, add it to the mixer, add 1/2 cup cream or milk, 1/2 vegetable broth (low sodium!!!) and salt/pepper to taste. I do use a fat free heavy cream also, but damn, it makes for a good soup and stinky pee

If you can replace one crappy meal with a healthy Vitamix concoction, you'll find it much easier to adapt to the healthy eating life style and not wanna give up so easy. Give it 3 weeks minimum, you'll see a change, and it will become normal.
