We know that many of our blog readers will make New Year’s Resolutions to either improve their health, lose weight or both. There are numerous reasons to make weight loss resolutions. Losing weight makes you healthier, gives you more energy and helps to reduce fat and build muscle. Make it easier to achieve your goals by setting different goals. Instead of targeting to lose a certain number of pounds, consider eliminating one can of soda from your diet every day. That goal is easy to attract and easy to achieve.
Change your mindset. Instead of eliminating foods such as those high in complex carbs, add foods that you will enjoy eating such as snacking on more fruit or drinking more water.
Ask a nutritionist or your physician to develop an eating plan that is right for you.
If you subscribe to a particular diet or simply elect to eat healthier, there are certain kitchen tools that can help guide your way and make dieting easier.
One of the first appliances that people turn to when starting a diet is a blender. We prefer blenders with high-torque motors that can easily convert solids into liquids in a few seconds to create healthy shakes, smoothies and other drinks that the entire family can enjoy.
Emersion or hand blenders enable you to mix, chop, whisk and blend, at the stove, countertop or anywhere else in the kitchen that you prepare meals. If you don’t already have a hand blender, look for one with multiple speeds.
A food processor can slice, dice and chop foods in a matter of seconds. Food processors are great for making healthier snacks and appetizers such as fresh hummus or homemade granola.
An air fryer gives you the taste and crunch of fried foods using approximately 75% less oil than a conventional fryer. An air fryer is a convection oven that circulates hot air around food to cook it. Air fryers come in a variety of sizes. The largest of which can cook a meal for a family of four looking to reduce fat and calories.
One of the cool new gadgets for dieting is a spiralizer that takes vegetables such as zucchini, squash and carrots and turns them into spaghetti.
Cooking beef, duck and chicken in a rotisserie convection toaster oven will help reduce fat and calories.
A slow cooker prepares food as its name implies slowly. Slow cooking preserves nutrients in the food thereby making your meals healthier, tastier and easier to digest.
A good quality kitchen scale can help with portion control. Portions are based on weight and not size. To get in the habit of eating the right portions, you need to weigh what you will eat.
A brand new kitchen, organized and designed personally for you, will make meal preparation easier and more enjoyable. We can help with that as well.
