Hi and welcome to The Food Chopper blog. My name is Colete and I’m so glad you stopped by.
I work from home as a Customer Service Representative, but in my spare time I love to cook and try new recipes.
I’ve always loved to cook. As far back as I can remember, I was always in the kitchen with my mom when she was preparing meals and baking. When I became a little older my brothers would pay me to do the cooking for them when it was their turn to cook and they wanted to go swimming, bird watching or do something else.
Growing up in a small country in those days, we did not have any of the modern kitchen conveniences, like food processors that proliferate today. We prepared all our meals from scratch and did all the kneading, mixing and chopping by hand.
But that was a good thing because by preparing our own meals from scratch and doing our own baking, we did not consume unhealthy, preservative filled processed foods.
Fast forward several years and I immigrate to the United States. I became a slacker and didn’t cook as much as I used to when I was back home. Instead falling into the trap of grabbing for what was quick, easy and convenient, which meant eating mostly processed and frozen meals.
In the past few years I’ve been slowly eliminating these types of unhealthy foods from my diet as I’ve come to learn how harmful they are to your health.
So it’s back to basics for me, but this time around I get to use all the fancy and modern kitchen tools that make cooking so much fun. I can use a food processor to do all the mixing, chopping and kneading for me.
I have a long wishlist of indispensable kitchen tools that I’ll need to support my new healthy eating and cooking lifestyle, and of course a food processor is at the top of my list. So I’m researching food processors to find the best one for my needs and budget. Through this blog I’ll be sharing with you all my research and findings so you too can make the right choice based on your needs and budget, and not suffer from buyer’s remorse.
I hope you find The Food Chopper useful in helping you find the best food processor for you.
