The blender (both countertop and immersion type) is essential in every kitchen, especially when it comes to blending smoothies and pureeing soups to give them a creamy texture (without the cream).
Not only are fresh herbs a much healthier option than dried, but they also pack a flavor punch and help in cutting down on salt consumption. Worried you won’t use them up before they wilt? Grab this fresh herb saver, a gadget that, unlike the grocery store plastic bags, will keep herbs fresh for up to 3 weeks in the refrigerator.
While olive oil is an essential ingredient in every kitchen, an accidental slip of the wrist (pour versus spray) can wreak havoc on your diet – fill this oil mister with olive oil (plus herbs for extra flavor, if desired) and spritz away on salads and in cooking pans.
The old school steamer basket is a life (and waist) saver. Steaming couldn’t be easier than with this steamer basket (the pop-up handle helps you remove it easily), a surefire way to serve up healthy vegetables and fish.
Obvious, right? We know, but don’t dismiss how essential these tools are for staying trim. Measuring cups and spoons will take the guesswork out of determining what a true serving size (“What do you mean that’s all the cereal I get?”) is and keep your portions down to a science.
