Now on to some of my must-have healthy kitchen tools. There is no way I can include everything I love so you’ll just see some of my top kitchen gadgets.
Angie’s Top Kitchen Accessories List:
Have you heard of zoodles? Zucchini noodles are all the rage. I love them! Here’s the spiralizer I use and have bought as gifts.
and don’t forget the Inspiralized book to go along with it. If you’re new to this way of eating, you definitely need this book. Look at my beautiful spiralized zucchini….nom nom!
I love using the Silpat mats for baking. Easy cleanup and replaces the need for sprays, grease, etc. Safe to use in the freezer, microwave and oven of course. I just lay it on our baking sheets. Easy peasy. Make cookies, dough, and even the grands made candy on them for Christmas.
The Instant Pot is amazing! I bought Kev one as a gift AND bought another for a friend. You can cook almost anything in this. Rice, beans, meat, stew, you name it, you can probably throw it in the Instant Pot. It can be used as a pressure cooker, slow cooker, rice cooker, use it to saute things and more. Chili is on the list to make next! And I hear you can do hard boiled eggs in it too, excited to try that.
I did a lot of research on the Instant Pot (and will write a whole post on it down the road) but I like this particular one because the pot inside is stainless steel. I got the Vegan Under Pressure cookbook for my friend too.
This is one of our most used kitchen accessories by far. We love to juice around here! We have had this Breville juicer for a couple years now and it’s still going strong.
There are a lot of juicing books on the market. The next book on my list to buy is Just Juice It by Matt Maddix. Speaking of juicing, I have some carrots, cucumbers, apples and more ready to juice up this week. Stay tuned.
Lastly, one of the things we use most around our kitchen are cutting boards. We have one specifically for meat and then a lot of other ones. You can never have too many right?
Here are some favorites and of course on my wishlist for when any of ours need a replacement. From Bamboo, plastic to flexible mats, you can’t go wrong with a variety of cutting board options.
