Wouldn’t be nice to grab pre-chopped garlic and onions every time you cook? Seriously, with all the time you have to spend chopping garlic cloves and onions, you might as well have to pre-chop these foodstuffs in bulk to save 1 to 2 hours of your time every week, right? After all, most recipes in general start with these 2 basic ingredients.
A food processor can actually do the chopping. All you need to do is toss in your week’s supply of garlic and onions (first the garlic, then the onions or the other way around) and with just one click you can chop em’ up in seconds! The grab a sealed container and store them in the fridge. Now you can take them out and prepare your paleo meals in a jiffy.
You can do the same for carrots, celery, and other veggies that go along with your paleo diet.
Chopping your foods with a food processor is a great way to save time as you’ll only have to do the chopping once. Moreover, you’ll just have to wash the blades and the bowl once. So now you can say “bye-bye” to all the troubles you usually face during meal preparation.

Meatballs and meatloaf are some of the main dishes in a typical paleo meal diet plan, but you can actually turn these foods into superfoods just by adding one ingredient: Liver.
All you need to do is add in diced liver bits into your food processor with water and blend it up until it turns into a thin paste. Then divide them into portions and place it in the freezer.
Once you want to prepare a meatloaf dish for dinner, all you need to do is get a portion of the liver paste and mix it with the ground meat using your hands.

Pizza is a comfort food, but we all know how unhealthy it is especially when you’re into paleo dieting. So if you still want to enjoy a scrumptious slice of pizza without ruining your paleo diet, then you can substitute the usual pizza dough with cauliflower dough.
First, toss in cauliflower florets in the food processor and pulse until fine. Then combine with mozzarella and parmesan cheese, garlic powder, eggs, and oregano. Transfer it on a baking sheet like the usual pizza dough and bake it for twenty minutes. Then add the toppings you want and bake for another 10 minutes.
Probably, you tend to skip into making your own condiment if you follow a paleo meal diet plan. After all, they take a lot of effort to do and are very time-consuming. But once you have a food processor, you can now create gorgeous dressings and condiments without breaking a sweat!
Take for instance, a homemade mayonnaise. Surely, you have to spend a lot of energy whisking the eggs manually. But once you do it with a processor, you can actually do it in just 3 minutes! Just combine egg yolks, 1 tablespoon of lemon juice, a pinch of salt, and mustard into the food processor bowl and mix everything while slowly pouring the oil in.
Now you can enjoy this tasty dressing minus the effort.
