"Top 5 Timesaving Tools
for the Kitchen"
Hello, all of my Fabulous Subscribers!!! Spring has finally arrived on the East Coast of the US and if you are like me you want to be outdoors and taking in the beauty of nature and the extra daylight we experience this time of year.. But.....we still have to make delicious, nutritious meals, so here a few of my go-to time saving tools that will save you time in the kitchen and still have you eating want your body needs to run efficiently.
May can be SUCH a busy month! The school year’s ending, there are graduation ceremonies (and parties!); camps to schedule, vacations to plan, family gatherings, and much more! I could get overwhelmed just thinking about it! Instead, I look for ways to make a little more time in my day and give myself some breathing room. Probably my biggest timesaving opportunity is in the kitchen. Whenever I find a tool or appliance that cuts down on my meal prep time, I am ecstatic! So I thought I’d share my top favorite timesaving tools with you!
I hope this month you find time to do a few more of the activities you love most – whether it’s taking a walk, talking with a loved one, or simply “being.”
P.S. I’d love to hear YOUR favorite timesaving tool – whether it’s in the kitchen or anywhere else! Please share it on my Facebook page at Age Perfection.
Here’s to more time doing what you love,
Top 5 Timesaving Tools for the Kitchen
I’ll let you in on a secret: I don’t always have time to make a meal. But I know how important it is to make a lot of my own meals in order to live the healthy lifestyle I want. That doesn’t mean cooking has to be a chore, though! My favorite kitchen tools help me make delicious, nutritious meals and snacks – faster and easier than I ever thought possible. I’ve listed them below and provided links for you to see the product. Please note -- I don’t promote any one brand over another unless specified below. There are so many great choices and new tools coming out every year!
1.Spiralizer. A spiralizer makes thin “noodles” out of raw veggies, so you get more of the benefits of vegetables in your recipes. For example, “zoodles” are made from raw zucchini. They are low in carbs, low in calories, and are a rich source of vitamins and nutrients (vitamins A, B6, C, K, and folate, manganese, and potassium). Two cups of zoodles gives you about 15 percent of the RDA of fiber, too! You can make all sorts of vegetable noodles: yellow squash (“squoodles”); carrots (“coodles”); and sweet potatoes (“swoodles”), to name a few! Just select a vegetable that’s not too soft (tomatoes) and not too hard (acorn squash). It’s a fun way to eat more veggies.
2.Lemon wedge ice tray. Warm water with lemon is a great morning drink for its detoxifying, astringent and hydrating qualities. This tray lets me squeeze and freeze more than a week’s worth of lemon juice all at once, saving me precious time in the morning. I just slice and squeeze a few lemons into a large measuring cup, pour to fill the tray wedges, then place the tray in the freezer (carefully, so it doesn’t spill!). In the morning, I just plop one of the frozen lemon wedges in my warm water and put the tray back in the freezer. Plus, they are so cute! (You can also use the lemon wedges in recipes, and defrost one to use as salad dressing or on fish!)
3.NutriBullet. This has been one of my best investments! It makes fast work of my morning breakfast protein smoothie. I blend all the ingredients right in the cup, put on the lid and take it with me on my way to my morning workout, carpool, appointments, errands – whatever, whenever!
4.Immersion Hand Blender. Do you love soups? Then you will love this tool! I use it all the time to blend soup and sauce ingredients – right in the pot. It saves me from messing up another bowl and having to clean it.
5.Vegetable chopper. I admit it – I eat a LOT of fresh veggies. But chopping them takes a LOT of time. Or rather, it used to! I use this chopper to save time when I chop carrots, celery, squash, red peppers, mushrooms, and onions! And it cleans up fast, too!
My next newsletter will be full of recipes, so be on the lookout! Till next time!
