Healthy Eating – Have You Tried These Kitchen Tools?
Looking to take your health to the next level? If so, do not discount the variety of kitchen tools available to help make your food preparation life a little more straightforward. It is one thing to focus on eating healthier foods, but quite another to look at making sure you are using the right “tools of the trade” so to speak to ensure you are getting the healthiest meals you can and perhaps in the shortest amount of time.
Many people already have the basics…
- a skillet,
- a pot,
- a steamer,
- a blender, and so forth.
But, there are a few other exciting kitchen cooking tools that can help you take your meals up a notch.
Here are a few…
1. A Vegetable Spiralizer. First up on the list is a vegetable spiralizer. This tool helps you make “spaghetti” like pieces from zucchini, carrots, or even sweet potatoes if you prefer. If you are looking to avoid gluten and therefore cannot eat pasta, it is one tool you might appreciate.
2. An Oil Mister. Next up on the list is an oil mister. If you ever have trouble drizzling on just a little bit of olive oil, this one is for you. You can merely mist the food you want to put the olive oil on and get a very light coating.
Considering there are over 100 calories per tablespoon of oil, this can save you loads of calories in the long run.
3. A Computerized Food Scale. If you are serious about seeing the best results from your diet and exercise efforts, it is going to be very important you are weighing and measuring the foods you eat. This is where a computerized food scale comes in helpful.
These food scales are not only going to weigh your food for you, but they will also tell you how many calories and grams of each macronutrient they contain. These scales make knowing what you are eating much more accessible.
4. The Magic Bullet. The last kitchen tool you will want in your cupboard is a magic bullet. If you are a smoothie lover, this is a must-have. The Magic Bullet comes with cups that fit right into the blender component, so after you blend your smoothie, you can just put a lid on it, and you are good to go.
There you have four of the best kitchen tools out there that are often overlooked. Which of these will you try out?
