healthy cooking with gadgets

Not only will your life be simplified by these new gadgets, but they will inspire you to have fun and become more creative. Healthy cooking with gadgets, while entertaining your family and friends, has never been easier. 

These are my top 10 choices for you:

An oil mister allows you to use healthy olive or flaxseed oil. It is economical and can help to cut calories by significantly reducing the amount of oil you use in your frying pans and on your salads. The clog-free filter allows you to infuse and flavour the oil to your taste with condiments such as garlic, onion, chilli, herbs and spices. The oil mister provides you with the convenience of a commercial sprayer, but without the unhealthy additives and chemicals.

4. Salad spinner

A salad spinner is a great tool for both washing your salad greens and drying them. It uses centrifugal force to remove excess water, allowing the salad dressing oil to stick to the leaves. Also, the leaves will last longer and keep from going limp. The clear bowl can be used for serving and the basket can be useful as a colander. I use my salad spinner to store the greens in the fridge.

5. Soymilk maker

Soymilk is a healthier, lactose free substitute for dairy milk. Purchasing ready made soy milk can be very expensive and contains toxic additives, preservatives, chemicals and sweeteners.

This automatic soy milk maker will not only save you lots of money over time, but is quick and easy to use.


6. Yogurt maker
