Food Processor : A must have on your Kitchen!

 

So, what is a Food Processor? A food processor is simply a kitchen appliance that processes food! Kidding aside, click here for wiki’s definition.

Everyday, I came across many kitchen appliances but this one makes the difference in preparing ‘your own’ meal, at least for me. Why? simply because it’s compact! With its size, you will not believe that it can perform some Mixing, Kneading, Slicing, Emulsifying, Chopping, Grating, Mincing, and many more tedious kitchen works using any other manual way! Each of the functions stated depends on the attachment or accessories of the model you chose which makes it ideal for the time-conscious millennials these days.

A typical food processor, approximate height might not exceed 50cm, it will look like this:

So the next time you swing by on your local or nearest appliances store, you might notice this small one on a side and might wanna know what its functions right? Here I posted some of the functions it can do.

On this type of food processor, the functions is dependent on the attachment it has. For example the slicing attachment where in Grating and Slicing (thin) can be done on this attachment. As seen, fineness of the sliced part of the carrots differs on different slicing attachment used. The one with holes on it can be used in grating (e.g. cheese) and the other one with a single blade make it ideal for thin slicing (e.g. mojos) or just chopping.

Next will be the Mixing. For example a Pancake batter, as based on photo below. Instead of manually mixing your basic ingredients like Powder, Eggs, and Butter, the Food Processor can mix everything well within 10seconds or less! You just have to put all the quantified ingredients inside the bowl. If you are uncertain on the ratios of your ingredients whether it can be emulsified or not, you can first start with a single ingredient then add slowly the next one so that you can track which ingredients needed some additional and which is enough.

 

While meat-grinding sounds like a powerful machine for meat cutting, this food processor can also be a meat grinder but let us simply call it Mincing. Mincing is chopping of ingredients in finest chop possible or up until what the user wants.

Chopped meat was feed on the bowl with the use of the slicing discs for thin slice (same on the carrots above) and then mixed inside. I placed all the other ingredients when my desired amount is met.

Food processor has many application and the limits will depend on the usage of the user. I personally advise food processor as a must-have appliance on your kitchen, it shortens the cutting, mincing and mixing of your ingredients which is the first step in cooking! Aside from those, there are many models that have Blender as their accessory, so a wider and more use of it. Yay!

 

Not convinced yet? Grab your own food processor and see it for yourself.

Eats & Feels: Wednesday Hanash!!

I’m gonna write this coz I’m too exhausted with the people’s reaction seeing what I eat.
As of today, Wednesday – April 6, 2016, marked the first week of my lowcarb-intake program. Why? I have to loose weight in order for me to increase my pace in running. You know, the typical small mass vs large mass will definitely result to a small mass having the advantage of faster pace thus cutting carbohydrates will surely a good bet.

I only eat my baon during our mirienda break – 4pm which is exactly 2hours before my workout.
Guess what! As I pulled my baon out and revealed my 4 precious hard boiled eggs, people around me (at office’s canteen) seems to loose their mind!
I know I don’t have or need to say this but for the record, I deserve those eggs! I need those protein after my workout. Okay lang sana kung mga healthy people ang magkaron sakin ng mga ganon looks but they’re not!! I don’t judge them on what they eat (healthy or unhealthy) but why are they reacting on mine? Is that really of a big deal???
Does eating egg (only) is a crime now? Sila nga makakain ng kanin, tinapay at pancit canton (super carbs) ng sabay sabay sa isang meal akala mo nag cacarbo loading for a long run.

As in natatawa sila sa kinakain kong itlog. Gulat na gulat na 4pcs ang kakainin ko everyday. Sige nga, ano naman pinag kakain nila? Just a bunch of junks. I don’t care if they’re treating their body like a trash can for eating trash(es) but please don’t make paki-alam on my food.

Wala kayong alam sa nararamdaman ko, sa program na ginagawa ko, sa mga kakainin ko, so please stop that judgy look you’ve got. It seems like I’m being an Alien for eating what truly my body needs.

The same experienced I get around them (people at the office) when eating my sandwich during lunch. Kanya-kanya pong diet. FYI mas packed pa yung nutrients inside my personally prepared sandwich! I don’t know why are they acting like that, Pag kumakain naman ako kasama ibang friends hindi katulad nila mag re-act.

 

PS: I guess I need to post my diet from now on so I will just gladly say to them to visit this blog to understand my routine.

Egg Post!

Just made this post to scream that I’m craving for eggs!

Well, I super love eggs! I don’t know why, they just satisfy my angry stomach. At breakfast buffets, I just go straight to their eggs’ station. I want to eat all of their eggs if only its allowed? (or normal)

I stopped (or more appropriate “consume less”) facing eggs since November, I think it is the culprit on my diet. So I’m on a less protein now. The last time I ate eggs was a week ago. I packed 8 pieces of hard boiled eggs during our hike at Mt.Pulag on November 28-30, 2015 but they got spoiled during the first day! I have no choice, even though it was against my will, I threw them away. I will not sacrifice my stomach’s state especially on the Mountains.

So now, I’m just a kid craving for eggs. I want to go to a buffet and eat just eggs but all of my friends are busy right now as of the Christmas Season is in the air. Guess I’ll just prepare it at home or grab otw.

Boiled, sunny side up, quail, kwek-kwek, penoy, balut, etcetera.
