Congratulations on your new VitaMix. I know you will love it once you start using it. This link has loads of recipes and techniques that one uses. Since a Vitamix is essentially self cleaning I tend to use it more than my food processor for chopping as well as other things because the food processor can be a pain to clean with it’s multiple parts. http://blenderlady.com/
Here are a bunch of uTube videos on various techniques.
If you purchased a reconditioned vitamix on ebay remember to register it with vitamix
