Food Processors

I’m on the hunt for a good quality food processor…

Here’s the top three that I’m looking at for a family of 4 (pre-research): Braun, Breville, and Cuisinart.  It needs to be durable and low maintenance.  I don’t really care about how loud or quiet it is because my kids are typically loud and they sleep with a sound machine.  A quiet motor is a nice “want” but not a necessity.  Maybe that will matter to me more in 5 years.

Final Thoughts

After the stellar reviews above as well as the in depth review from Tech Gear Lab and Healthy But Smart, I am leaning toward the Breville Sous Chef.  I need a large food processor for 4 people — although my kids are only 1 and 2 years old, they already eat a ton and I know this will only mean bigger appetites as they grow older.  Important things for me are chopping, shredding, slicing, and cleaning.  After the research, I think the Breville Sous Chef fits the bill.

 

Meal Prep – Buddha Bowls

I’ve always been a bit lazy it comes to planning ahead for groceries and meals. Thank goodness for home delivery services like Blue Apron, SunBasket, Gobble, etc! They’ve been an all-in-one encompassing savior to meals. We used to do date nights while cooking in the kitchen, enjoying a glass or 2 of wine, and catching up on the hectic weekday. However, the thought/idea of meal planning or cooking right now is even further removed from my mind since our little one arrived. Enter Tovala — an incredible meal delivery service using healthy ingredients and creative menus. Tovala has been our go-to for hectic days… basically daily. I’ve enjoyed all of these menu delivery services!

But, I want to be able to create my own buddha bowls as I want to incorporate more vegetable and nutritional ingredients into my diet.

When I go back to work, I’m looking forward to having a healthy diet/lifestyle despite having an infant and full-time job.
