Do you have weight loss on your mind for 2022? Whether you’ve stuck to your healthy eating diet plan, or have given in to the family bag of crisps (guilty as charged!), we could all do with an extra helping hand when it comes to getting more of the good stuff into our bodies.
While some of us may find cutting up vegetables therapeutic, others may find the temptation of reaching for that microwavable ready-meal just a tad stronger. But, hopefully some of these kitchen gadgets can help with that.
From air fryers for reduced-fat chips to steamers for restaurant-quality veg, these are our go-to kitchen aids for a fuss-free meal. And don’t worry, it’s not just a list of juicers.
Scouring the web for the healthy eating heroes – Nutribullet we’re looking at you – to the subtle saviours, we’ve done the leg work so you don’t have to. And, even better, they’re all currently on sale, meaning you’ll be saving money while eating healthily.
For breakfast, the omelette maker is a great go-to for a healthy yet filling start to the day – add a red pepper and tomatoes to get a head start on your five a day. For a sweeter option try a smoothie or protein shake made with your trusty Nutribullet.
Vegetable soup or steamed salmon and rice can be a really tasty lunch option, and if working from home there’s no excuse to reach for that soggy sandwich. While the air fryer will get its time to shine come dinner time, with roast chicken and sautéed veg on the menu.
