A New Year has begun and the holiday season has officially come to an end. “Thank goodness,” shout nutritionists everywhere. While all of the holiday treats certainly were delicious, they didn’t extend beyond the tippity top of the food pyramid. If your New Year’s resolution is to cut the corn syrup and pass on the preservatives, we present you with Grommets designed to give you a healthy helping hand.
Behind every great meal comes great preparation. The Avoloop takes away all of the difficulties as easily as it slices and dices fruits and vegetables with minimal waste. The simple tool is safe for all ages, so if you don’t feel like prepping the tomatoes, make your kids do it.
As easy to use are the Chef’n products. Stem, slice, and squeeze your favorite fruits with just two hands. No cutting board, knife, or frustration necessary with this tool. And as an added bonus, it squeezes out more juice than traditional tools with less effort.
Maybe you’ve already purchased pounds of produce. In that case, well done. But a common and reasonable fear is they’ll go bad. That doesn’t have to be the case.
With BluApple, you can leave your fruits and veggies in the fridge and just place it right next to them. BluApple absorbs the ethylene gas responsible for accelerating the ripening process all while saving, what the USDA estimates, nearly $600 in produce waste per year.
Then there is Bee’s Wrap which helps preserve fruits, veggies, and leftover meals you have stored with reusable and recyclable food storage sheets. FreshTape allows you to seal (up to a dozen times) any size bag of snacks to keep them fresher, longer.
Also in the food preserving arena is AirScape. Contrary to airtight containers, these canisters pull air up and away from your food through a one-way valve. It keeps crackers and cereal crisper and locks in the flavor of teas and coffees.
When it comes to whipping up a meal, the last thing you want to do is under- or overcook it. That’s where Nomiku comes in. This immersion calculator allows you to see when foods have reached their optimum temperature giving a chef quality dish every time.
Urban Cheesecrafts allows you to have fresh mozzarella, ricotta, queso blanco, peneer, or goat cheese in about an hour with nothing more than a gallon of pasteurized milk. Ok fine, you have to go to the store for one thing, but trust us it will be worth it.
If you insist on staying home though try EasiYo, the DIY yougurt maker. With no electronic or moving parts, this simple tool has you just a few steps away from fresh yogurt with no preservatives or artificial colors and chock-full of protein, calcium, vitamins, and minerals.
Perhaps you could use some toppings for your delicious yogurt treat. In that case, try Granola Lab. Available in five unique flavors, Granola Lab is packed with healthy nuts, seeds, and dried fruit. It’s also all natural, low in sugar, preservative-free, dairy-free, wheat-free, GMO-free, and certified Kosher Parve. For those playing healthy eating bingo, you just won the game.
As you set the table, do so with Wine Trax. Nutritionists say everything is best in moderation and Wine Trax provides dinner and glassware that helps you visualize that idea. With frosted lines indicating nutritionist recommended food and drink portions, you’ll always have an idea of what is just enough.
One thing that certainly doesn’t need any portion control is water. You’re supposed to be drinking eight glasses of the stuff per day so you might as well make sure it is of the best quality you can get your hands on. Soma, the German engineered water filtration carafe, helps you do just that with organic, compostable filters to boot.
As plates of cookies are reduced to crumbs, arm yourself with the tools you need to make healthy eating easy. Your body and conscious will certainly appreciate it in the New Year.
