8 Kitchen Gadgets for the Healthy Eater

8 Kitchen Gadgets for the Healthy Eater

Cooking healthy meals can often be a headache with planning, prep time, and cleanup. In our busy lives, we are often drawn to easy alternatives like fast food. But we’ve discovered that having the right tools on hand can make every bit of difference. If cooking healthy food can become as easy, or even as enjoyable as ordering takeout, then why not go for it? Here are eight kitchen gadgets that will encourage you to eat healthier:

Immersion Blender

One of the best parts of eating a raw food diet is all the delicious soups and dips you can make! Navigating the textures of raw vegetables can be difficult for some, so blending is definitely the way to go. Just pick out your favorite veggies and spices, put them in a pot or bowl with some water, and get blending! All those different textures become one smooth, cohesive dish, ready to enjoy! If you’re looking for great soup or dip recipes, check out the Hallelujah Diet’s recipe pages. There are dozens of hand-selected recipes that will make delicious meals for you and your family.

Personal Blender

In our fast-paced lives, it’s so important for us to be able to bring healthy food with us on the go, so we’re less tempted to run to the closest drive-thru. And what’s a meal that’s particularly easy to get at a fast-food joint? Breakfast! But if you can bring a healthy to-go breakfast with you, you’ll have vital nutrients to boost your energy all morning and cut down on mid-morning cravings! Using a personal blender that comes with to-go cups can be a fast and easy way to bring a healthy breakfast on your morning commute. You’ll have great meal options like delicious fruit smoothies, green juices, and plant-based protein shakes!

Water Infuser

We all know it’s best to avoid sodas, right? The sugar and caffeine levels alone can be extremely detrimental to our health. Not to mention the effects that carbonation can have on our teeth. But did you know that some fruit juices can have just as much added sugar as sodas? So, what is our daily drink alternative? Plain water? While water can certainly quench your thirst, it’s not always going to scratch the itch for something flavorful. Water flavor powders and syrups are full of sugar substitutes and harmful chemicals. Using a whole-fruit water infuser can give us an excellent healthy drink option! You can buy pitchers with special inner baskets for chopped-up fruit and drink delicious fruit-flavored water all day. Need an on-the-go option? There are specialty water bottles that do the same thing! Stay hydrated without all those added sugars.

Spiral Slicer

Choosing to abide by a specialized diet may involve finding substitutes for your favorite ingredients. One of the best substitutes that we’ve found for traditional pasta is vegetable pasta! And to make vegetable pasta, having a spiral slicer on hand is very beneficial. These specialized tools can turn a zucchini or summer squash into spaghetti-like spiral pasta in just minutes! This makes meal-prep so much easier and incorporates a fantastic and healthy substitute into your daily diet.

Bread Maker

If you’re trying to maintain a gluten-free raw diet or simply eat less processed carbohydrates, it can be so hard to find bread substitutes at the grocery store. That’s why we suggest getting a bread maker and making your own bread substitutes at home! There are so many great flour alternatives on the market: rice flour, coconut flour, and almond flour all make great options. Having a bread maker at home is an easy way to have fresh bread whenever you want, and control what ingredients you’re eating. Just toss in your gluten-free ingredients, and let the machine do all the work. Your house will be smelling great in no time!

Food Processor

If you’re interested in cutting down on prep time while you’re cooking, using a food processor can be a great way to do that. These gadgets can do everything from rough-chop vegetables to fully emulsify ingredients to put in sauces and soups. The recipe opportunities are endless. You can make delicious dips and spreads like guacamole, salsa, hummus, and even homemade nut butter! Want to make some favorite family recipes plant-based? You can use a food processor to incorporate ingredient substitutes like cashews instead of the cheese in vegan mac and cheese! (Bonus points if you use garbanzo beans or kelp noodles.)

Spice Grinder

Why are some people so averse to eating healthier options? It’s because they wrongly believe these dishes must be bland! Plain raw salad, avocado, and unseasoned quinoa are fine, but they aren’t exactly loaded with flavor by themselves. Well, all of that can change if you just use the right seasoning! You can totally transform healthy dishes by incorporating freshly ground herbs and spices. The easiest way to do that is by using an electric spice grinder and adding your favorite seasonings into your daily cooking. Even some fresh-ground black pepper can make the biggest difference!

Raw foods provide an amazing benefit to the body, but they can sometimes require a bit more effort to get the full benefit. After all, these aren’t mass-processed and designed for fast, nutrition-less consumption. These are real, healthy foods as God made them. These kitchen gadgets help you get the most from your healthy diet with less work, and that’s a win! We hope you find these kitchen gadget recommendations as useful as we’ve found them in our kitchen.
