By February 5, 2017Recipes

As a dietetics student and lover of food, I can’t believe it took me this long to get a food processor! I’ve seen so many good recipes that call for the use of a food processor, and the magic bullet just doesn’t cut it (sorry mom). So shout out to my brother for this awesome christmas gift, and if you don’t have a food processor, I highly recommend! I’ve been using it during my meal prepping each week, and it’s been fun to try a variety of new recipes. Here are a few of my favorite new staples:
