Honestly, I purchased this Ninja food processor a few months ago, but I had not used it because I was not familiar with how to use it. Also, I did not give myself time to go through their instructional manual.
With summer right around the corner, I knew I wanted to get back on the “healthy lifestyle” wagon. You know how that goes, “I will start eating healthy this coming Monday!” I am very guilty of that. I am guilty of going through “healthy” phases in which I really watch what I eat, and exercise more.
In addition, one of my struggles if making healthy meals that my daughter would also want to eat.
So when I jumped back into the eating healthy lifestyle, I started looking for recipes for that were healthy, easy, quick, and likely to be liked by my daughter. Was I crazy for wanting a recipe that encompassed all of that? Maybe, I am a little crazy, but that’s the kind of recipe mothers in this modern fast paced world need!!
After a few minutes of googling, I came across a zucchini pasta. Pasta looking veggies, meatballs, and a healthy tomato sauce was the combination I was looking for. Not even remembering that I had that machine in my pantry, I purchased a bag of zucchini noodles from my local grocery store.
It wasn’t until my sweet, yet tight on money husband, questioned me. He asked why I purchased a small expensive bag of zucchini noodles when I had a machine that could do the same thing, and produce double the amount of those noodles at half the price.
Anyway, to why you’re here. The review:
- chops vegetables fairly fine in a few pulses.
- most vegetables are similar in size, so end product looks evenly cut.
- saves you time.
- spiralizing your own vegetables is more cost effective than buying the pre-cut noodles.
- because you’re saving time, and cutting or spiralizing your vegetables is done quickly you’re more likely to eat healthy.
- initial investment of $119.
- whole product comes with 10 pieces that you would have to store in your cabinets.
Overall, I would buy it again. The benefits outweigh the drawbacks. Do not let the number of parts overwhelm you. It is actually simple to use once you have done it a few time. You can currently find the Ninja Precision Processor and Spiralizer in Amazon
