WOW! That is some 'factory' production there Terry
Done all so neatly and clean too... Or were the pics taken after clean up lol.

As April said, I hope you had a couple food processors... If it were me with all that volume I'd have no fingertips left . I'm pretty clutzy in the kitchen... Recently, a heavy duty SS peeler cut my fingernail in half horizontally! Almost had to go to ER, but just wrapped it and didn't use that finger for the next week!

We did not use the food processor at all for the chopping, it seems to make the pieces too small. Janine washed, peeled and cut into more manageable chunks, and I diced it. I swear, it really was not that bad, except for the beets (which made my throat feel like it was closing up and caused a coughing fit) and the rutabaga that would have been easier to cut with an axe. I will let you know how long it lasts, I have already used a container and a half, and the rest is in the freezer. There were a couple of containers I had that are not sealing as well as others so I want to use those up, then will probably just use this a couple times a week for a change for them

We kinda cleaned as we went because we were doing a video and taking pictures. Unfortunately, we should have had a script as we kept forgetting what we were saying and there was a lot of giggling..lol. So next time we will write it down before speaking

YIKES, I am cringing at the thought of your poor nail!!! That gives me chills. I would have been freaking out! How long did that take to heal?

Re: Chop Day Recipe

AWESOME Terry! How fun it would be to have company for helping and girl giggles. I unfortunately do most chop days by my lonesome although hubby helps now and again.

Re: Chop Day Recipe

Terry, I'm IMPRESSED you did ALL of that by hand ! I know the food processors or choppers do make some of the pieces too tiny or not all uniform like hand chopping. Did you switch hands to get equal exercise? LOL

It is still sensitive in one little area (been week and a half maybe?) but the top half (closest to the fingertip) detatched itself from the nail bed as the nail bed dried within just a couple days so I was able to take it off then. I heal amazingly quickly, and I think it's because I take vitamins daily and I eat a decent amount of fresh vegetables! Thanks for asking, hope that wasn't too graphic . That's why most of the time nowdays I use a chopper. Though this was done with a very sharp peeler!

Re: Chop Day Recipe

I wish I could use both hands, Julie, but I am terrible with my left and fear I would have lost a finger completely
Your poor finger!!! I am glad it is healing quickly, but wow, it sounds so painful....still shivering here thinking about that.

We honestly just stocked right up on the things our fids love the best (broccoli,cauliflower,peppers,snap peas and carrots were the top pick) and then just added smaller amounts of the other ingredients.You can use basically any amounts depending on how much you want to make. Each time will get easier as well to figure that out, I think

Chop Day Recipe

Terry I wanted to say thanks for this recipe- somehow I found myself out of chop mix the other day so I had to find new recipe since the last batch was edible but not that great (lol). I used your ingredient list as a guideline, but was unable to find a few things and left out the fruits except for blueberries.



This batch includes:
Chickpeas
Corn
Peas
Carrots
Green beans
Red and yellow bell peppers
Broccoli
Cauliflower
Blueberries
Flax seed
Kale
Sugar snap peas
Celery
Steamed brussel sprouts
15 bean mix
Lentils
Veggie pasta
Pearl barley
Quinoa
Long grain brown rice
Boiled popcorn kernels


So far, I think this is the best batch I've done- she's been eating for the last 45 minutes...and counting lol
