    This is a bit OT. But I am seriously considering getting a Tmx. Mainly to assist in making everything myself. Do any clean eaters here have one and what sorts of things do you make in it (I know it's not essential but I feel like it might take me to the next level i.e. sauces, breads etc)

    I have a Bellini which is like a thermomix but a lot cheaper ($250 on special). I use it to make my own mayo occasionally, BBQ sauce and other sauces. I've also made a seed and nut bread, nut breakfast bars (like a dense cake) and ricotta. I'd recommend getting one, it makes cooking from scratch less overwhelming :-)

    A friend of mine eats paleo and makes heaps from scratch. She has a tmx, she says she uses it but not as much as she thought she would. She's a chef though and so has the training and talent to be super-efficient and turn out yummy stuff in the kitchen.

    I was All excited moving back to Melbourne as I could start shopping at Aldi, but I've found their products riddled with msg. According to Fed Up, their bread is no good either, unlike the Coles/woolies home brands.

    On the chocolate, DD gets a sore stomach if she has too much. The first Easter she was on solids an auntie was feeding her eggs without me knowing - well I knew by the next nappy! It really doesn't agree with her insides!

    I use the fountain sugar free sauces. They have Natvia in them which has a sugar alcohol in it, again something that upsets some people's tummies. They are GF though if anyone needs that.

    Just checking my cupboards/fridge. So going by the list 400s are ok. Is that right?

    No! Not behavioural problems but other health problems are linked with some additives in the 400,s - if you download the additive alert app you can just type in the number and it will tell you - here's just a quick link

    I've pondered whether a tmx is worth it in an attempt to clean eat. A friend of mine rants and raves about how great it is because she can make nut butters, doughs, etc.. but in reality i can make all of those things in my food processor. So apart from being able to cook and weigh as well, which is easy enough to do with other kitchen implements, a $400ish food processor can do all the same and comes with a much longer warranty.

    That's the conclusion i came to as well! I bought a breville wizz pro for $375 ( which was a fantastic price), it does everything i want but in reality i don't use it half as much as i thought i would. $2k was just to much for me, i could only justify that for something that got used absolutely every day like a dishwasher, and even then 2k is a huge price!

    I find the concept of cutting out every thing on the list at once overwhelming. I already had 600 numbers excluded, so now working on nitrites (set off DH's athsma) which is hard as DD and I love salami! Plus preservative free bread.

    Next step for me will be colours.
