Vita-Mix Recipes

Hi vegan cooks! My amazing partner, jonny_neblina, just got us a Vita-Mix for our anniversary. I am absolutely tickled pink as I've been wanting one of these "total nutrition centres" ever since I was first demoed by that charming redheaded salesman who did an entirely vegan demo for us at the Pacific National Exhibition... *starry eyes*

Anyway, I was wondering if anyone has any great Vita-Mix (or other high-powered blender) recipes to share! Things that work particularly well, or neat ideas you've come up with!

whole wheat sandwich bread

I want to start making my own bread for sandwiches, because I figure it'll be cheaper in the long run. I've been looking online, but I'm unsure of what type of recipe will be good for sandwiches. Most of the recipes I've seen that are specifically labeled for sandwiches either contain eggs or have as their directions "add ingredients according to breadmaker" (I don't have a breadmaker and I really don't want to buy one). So, any recipes you have would be great. Basically I'm just looking for something basic and whole wheat, and maybe one that can be added to pretty simply (oats, nuts, garlic, etc). Thank you!
