5 kitchen appliances which help make healthy eating and cooking a doddle:

 

  • Combination Microwave Oven

Microwave cooking helps to preserve vitamins and minerals in food because food is cooked quickly and with the minimum amount of water.  With the modern trend for smaller kitchens, appliances that can multitask, such as a combination microwave (combining a conventional microwave oven with a steamer, grill and oven setting) are ideal.

 

  • Juicer

Although most of us are well aware of the recommendation to eat at least 5 portions of fruit and or veg a day, only 1 in 3 of us manage to reach the target. Starting the day with a freshly made juice is an easy way to boost your intake and can count as 2 of your five a day.

 

  • Slower cooker

At the end of busy day cooking a meal is probably the last thing you want to do which is why slow cookers can be such a good friend. What could be better than arriving home to a delicious stew or casserole?  They aren’t expensive and are perfect for making stews and cooking cheaper cuts of meat, you can even make porridge, cakes and jam in them.

 

  • Food processor

Cooking for scratch can mean a lot of chopping, grating, slicing and mixing which is so much quicker (and easier!) if you have a food processor.

 

  • Spiralizer  

If you’re watching your weight, following a low carb diet or simply trying to eat more a more varied diet, a spiralizer is well worth the investment and allows to you to create spaghetti and noodles from a whole range vegetable like carrots, courgette, sweet potato.
