I have a low quality blender and juicer and no food processor. I am starting to make some raw dishes….making interesting and tasty stuff is helping me to stay movitated with this lifestyle, as opposed to when I was just eating salads all day or carrots from a bag, etc. Only problem…my equipment sucks and it is costing me a ton of time of prep and clean up, in addition,,tons of money on produce due to inefficiency. Anyway…i know I cannot afford to buy all equipment right now, but i need to get something better than what I have. (I know I’ve been told I don’t need any equipment to eat raw but for me, I can’t stay motivated eating really simple salads with no dressing, a handful of nuts, etc. Today, I made 2 raw dishes using my blender and juicer and between prep, and even more so, clean up, by the time i finished, i wasn’t even hungry any more…is that the point? :)
Anyway…i know someone posted on if they were to get one item, it would be a blender, but can you make things like nut cheeses, juices, etc in that?? I learned about a vitamix but i am not sure about it..it SEEMS you can blend, juice, and chop with it, making it an ideal appliance for me to get right now but someone just said it just blends and you can’t do everything with it. Also..alot of the recipes I see require a dehydrator..
I don’t have money for a new blender, juicer, a dehydrator, etc..
So, if I want to be able to make the majority of stuff, i.e. green juices, nut cheeses, veggie burgers, etc…what should i get?
Thanks so much!!!!
