Food Appliances


I have become extremely dependent on several food appliances that I rarely used before I started eating a more plant based diet.  Now I find myself reaching for some appliances a few times a week when they were the dusty items on the shelf two years back.  Most of the items I didn’t receive until my bridal shower last October.  I always had them on my wishlist but figured I would wait until I could get the exact ones I wanted when I registered.  Below is a list of items that I don’t know what I would do without!

  • Food Processor Cuisinart 9 Cup Food Processor– I love my food processor.  I primarily use it to make hummus.  It is so easy to use and for cleanup.  I also use it to create nut butters such as almond, cashew and peanut.  I also like to use it for homemade applesauce.
  • Blender Breville Hemisphere Mini Blender– I have always used my blender for the occasional smoothie but now I use it everyday since I start my morning with my green smoothie.  I don’t have a vitamix (yet) but my little breville does the trick for now.  I just let it run for about 3 minutes to make sure all of veggies and fruit are completely blended.  I also like to use this for salad dressing.
  • Immersion Blender Cuisnart-My favorite appliance!  I use this for almost everything.  Cauliflower mashed potatoes, banana whips, salad dressings, all of my baking needs (as long as it doesn’t require a heavy duty mixer which in that case I use my trusty Kichenaid ) and acai bowls.  Not only is it so useful but its super easy to clean and store.  It also has a small price tag.  They have a bunch of different extensions but I usually stick with just the standard chop extension that it came with.

So tell me, what is your favorite appliance, anything I should add to my wishlist?

    I don’t know if it counts as an appliance, but I definitely couldn’t live without my pressure cooker.
