When I was growing up, my family owned a restaurant. The kitchen was always loud and bustling and it was basically sensory overload for me. I worked throughout my teens and early 20s running food or being a server. It starts to get to you eventually.
The chaos from the kitchen stayed with me into adulthood, even as I started doing something else with my life. My parents eventually sold the restaurant and I had no association with it anymore, but still the idea of being in a kitchen got to me, and I didn’t want to be bothered with cooking.
I was a regular takeout person, or dining in a restaurant, or just picking up something pre-made from the grocery store. One day I began to realize how this was affecting me not only financially, but from a health perspective as well. But I’d be damned if I was going to cook everyday. There had to be another way.
I started looking into the idea of food prepping so that I only had to torture myself for one day a week. I was so relieved that this was a thing otherwise I didn’t think I’d be able to give up my bad habits. And who knows how that would go if I didn’t.
I was able to find different blogs online that went into different ways to prepare food for the week. It seemed fairly easy, but one of the things it looked like I had to purchase was a Cuisinart Food Processor. A friend of mine had recommended doing the same thing, so I decided to take the leap.
My friend recommended KitchenWorksinc and suggested the Cuisinart custom 14 food processor. I ordered it and WOW. What a helpful tool. The recipes I found online seemed endless and nearly all of them were a lot healthier than my previous diet.
I realized I could make even bigger batches of things to freeze to have for super busy weeks or a meal to take out and thaw if I just come back from vacation or something like that. It was so incredibly convenient.
I’m really glad I found an alternative to daily cooking, and that I didn’t let my past with kitchens completely ruin me and take over when it came to my diet. My body and wallet are much happier now. I can certainly say that my Cuisinart food processor has paid for itself time and time again.
