Eating healthy tends to be a challenge. Whatever is fastest and easiest is what seems to make the most of our meals these days. In an attempt to lose weight and be healthy, this lifestyle can make that a little tricky. So here it is- a list of quick, easy ideas that will help simplify your life, while making it a little bit easier, all in your Magimix food processor.

CAULIFLOWER RICE

The perfect low-carb swap for regular rice, just chop a head of cauliflower into pieces, add them to your blender, and turn on until little pieces (that look like rice) form. Use it right away or store it in the freezer for later.

OAT FLOUR

Skip the white flour, which has very little nutritional value, and use homemade oat flour instead. It will increase the protein and fiber in your baked goods without sacrificing flavor or texture.

HOMEMADE NUT BUTTERS

If you’ve never tasted freshly made nut butter, warm from being made in a food processor, you haven’t lived! It tastes so much fresher and you can make it more fancy by using a mix of nuts and seeds instead of just peanuts or almonds.

NICE CREAM

Save on saturated fat and calories by making “nice cream” out of frozen fruit. The flavor possibilities are endless and you can mix in chocolate chips to make it feel more decadent.

SMOOTHIE BOWLS

For a satisfying, spoonable breakfast, use your food processor to make a smoothie bowl. Adding healthy fats like avocado, nut butter, and seeds, and a protein source such as tofu, beans, yogurt, or protein powder will fill you up until lunch.

HUMMUS

Nothing beats the fresh flavor of homemade hummus. It’s easy to make if you have a food processor, and you can get creative with the ingredients. Perfect to dip fresh veggies in.

FRUIT AND NUT BARS

If you’re a fan of any quick grab-and-go power bars, make different variations at home using your food processor. Bars contain a few simple ingredients-  cashews, dates, and spices.

HOMEMADE SALAD DRESSING

Forget all the added fats and extra calories that come in store bought dressings and make your own salad dressing at home! You can completely control the ingredients and customize them to your liking. Plus, it’s a super cool and impressive skill to have!

VEGGIES MADE EASY

Cutting veggies can become rather time consuming and tedious, which can sometimes make them not worth it. With different food processor attachments, you can have the tedious jobs done within seconds!

PROTEIN BALLS

With few ingredients and minimal prep time, these become the perfect snack. You can find hundreds of recipes on Pinterest and can customize them completely to your likes. Throw in some oats, use some dates to sweeten them up, and add in a handful of chocolate chips!
