Whether you want to start eating healthier, get fit, cut down on the takeaways and ready meals or simply jazz up your home, you don’t want to fall at the first hurdle with your New Year’s Resolutions just because you don’t have the right equipment.
Here are some kitchen appliances which we think will help you on your way.
From meats and vegetables to toasties and even paninis, you can make pretty much anything on a health grill. If you want to make things a bit healthier, then it will get rid of any excess oils and fats without ruining the taste, which is what we like to hear.
There are various sizes available, so no matter if you’re on your own or the whole family want to get involved, you’ll be able to find the right health grill for your home.
Do you always get home from work starving, have a route through the fridge and cupboards, see there’s nothing there and then phone up the takeaway? Or do you arrive home with no energy to do anything but pop a ready meal in the microwave?
A slow cooker gives you healthy home cooked meals with no effort. Just add all of the ingredients before you go to bed, leave to work its magic for the day and when you get home, voila. A fabulous meal ready to go.
Smoothies are a great way to get your five-a-day and use up all of that leftover fruit and vegetables you haven’t quite managed to eat or cook yet. Having a blender to hand to rustle one up on demand will make you much more likely to drink them, too.
There are plenty of frozen fruit options if you’d find that easier to manage, and blenders can also help you prepare homemade hummus, dips, and even ice cream.
From chips to meats to actual meals and puddings, an air fryer is a bit of a kitchen saviour. There are so many recipes out there to follow which you wouldn’t believe could be made in a fryer.
Plus, they’re very popular amongst anyone on Slimming World or Weight Watchers, so if that is your New Year resolution then why not buy an appliance which can kickstart your lifestyle change?
There’s nothing quite like a fresh glass of fruit juice to set you up for the day, even if the coffee is also a must. Whether you want to cut down on the caffeine, or simply want to drink healthier as well as eat healthier, a juicer can whizz up your oranges, apples and even celery. Plus, it will work out cheaper and more eco-friendly than constantly buying plastic bottles of juice throughout the year. Win-win.
