Small Appliances for a Healthy Life Style

Healthy cooking can be a lot of work, which is why many of us sometimes resort to prepackaged foods. But cooking light doesn’t have to be labor-intensive—if you’ve got the right tools. You can save calories, get all the nutrients you need regularly, and help your body in a matter of minutes. For healthy meals that are (almost) as easy as heating up a frozen entrée, check out these culinary product must-haves.

Vitamix Blender

Vitamix is the best blender out there with the most power. You can toss in a whole (not chopped) frozen rock hard banana into the Vitamix with a bit of frozen fruit and other liquid. The Vitamix pulverizes the banana and whips it into frozen fruity bliss. Vitamix containers are BPA-free. And so easy to clean. $379.99

Herbal Remedy

Fresh herbs are a lowfat way to pack flavor into a dish. Too bad the bunch tends to wilt before you have time to use it. Well, not anymore! Thanks to this nifty gadget, herbs will last up to three weeks when stored in the fridge. Prepara Herb Saver, $29.99

Hamilton Beach Bowl Scraper Food Processor

This blender solves the problem of how to keep dips and sauces from getting stuck to the sides while mixing. The built-in spatula dislodges ingredients from the walls with a twist of a dial, so you don’t have to constantly stop and stir by hand. Plus, it’s dishwasher-safe and has a 10 cup capacity, which makes it handy for serving a crowd. $59

Omega Juicer

The Omega VRT350 juicer can juice greens and wheat grass as well as root vegetables. It squeezes all the juice out of anything you put in it. The pulp comes out very dry. It is super quiet too. The Omega runs at a low rpm so it doesn’t kill enzymes. A 10 year warranty, it doesn’t take up much counter space, and is quiet when it’s juicing. $379.99

Vidalia Chop Wizard

A great way to chop vegetables, fruit, nuts, and more. Chop your kitchen prep time in half, giving you more time to enjoy your delicious dishes. This handy gadget includes 2 blades plus a convenient 2 cup measuring container. This is one of my favorite items. $19.99
