I’m thinking about getting a food processor. I see that a lot of healthy recipes call for one. What is the most useful cooking gadget or appliance you’ve found post-surgery?
A food processor is almost a must-have, mostly because it is versatile and can handle various heavy tasks in the kitchen. It is the single-most cooking item that I have found useful in preparing nutritious meals and reducing the time spent in the kitchen.
I’m a fan of Italian cuisine but pasta isn’t great since it’s loaded with carbs. So, I get a ton of use out of my spiralizer which allows me to make “pasta” out of zucchini (zoodles).
I love to cook so I have tons of fancy gadgets that were usually given as gifts. I don’t use my food processor that often now because it’s a pain to clean, but I used it a ton to purée my food when I hit that part of the diet after surgery. One thing that I’ve continued to use are those portion control rings since I’m not good at eyeballing portions. I have to say that those have been the most useful.
