Tools to Inspire a Healthy New Year

Resolving to live healthier in the new year? These gadgets, groceries, and tableware may just be the thing to trick, er, persuade yourself into eating more vegetables, reducing salt, right-sizing portions, and eating a healthy breakfast.

    A Mighty Mini Mixer

    Ever want to whip up a fast protein shake and race out the door but the thought of washing the entire blender makes you, well, race out the door? The powerful but small Aicok Personal Blender proves that good things come in small packages with its 300-watt motor and its BPA-free 21-ounce lidded container that transforms into a handy to-go cup. Just fill with fruit or veggies, liquid and any other ingredients like seeds, nut butter, yogurt, ice cubes, or protein powder, and you’ve got yourself a filling and healthy portable breakfast or snack.

  • Green Tea

    How Green Is My Tea

    Anti-inflammatory and filled with vitamins and antioxidants, few things are as good for you as matcha powder, which comes from specially grown and processed green tea leaves. The flavor is both more intense and more mild than your typical green tea. Plus, there are many ways to use matcha besides in a hot cuppa, such as a flavoring in this miso-glazed salmon with green tea rice or in green tea cranberry muffins. One we like? Kenko is the real deal; made in Japan, all natural, and made with the highest quality leaves, so you’re ensured a pure and potent shot of the green stuff.

  • Portion-Conscious Plates

    Portion-Control Plates

    One key to winning the weight battle is not just what but how much you eat. The elegant Hälsa Dinner Plates help solve that issue with a modern design that illustrates the correct portions. Each circle on the plate denotes the U.S.D.A recommended amount of protein, grains, veggies and sauce for the average adult. These 10 1/2-inch porcelain plates (microwave-and-dishwasher safe) also have a wide rim so that the plates visually trick the brain into thinking there is a fuller plate of food than there actually is.

    Shake the Salt

    Too much salt leads to high blood pressure, cardiovascular disease and other issues, so reduce your sodium by replacing it with a grind or three of fresh herbs. The dishwasher-safe Microplane Herb Mill will chop piquant cilantro, dill, parsley, and sage with just the twist of the top. Mince the herbs directly on your stews, soups, and roast meats for an uber-healthy meal.

    Insta Veggies

    We all know that a plant-based diet is the optimal way to eat, but slicing and chopping endless veggies can be very time-consuming, which makes us less likely to sustain a healthy lifestyle. One solution is to get the all-in-one Chop N’ Slice Pro. With 7 interchangeable blades that fit safely and securely onto the box lid and a handy container to collect and store the produce, this is one inexpensive, fast and fun way to enjoy your veggies!

    Salad Days

    Scientists have definitively proven that your eye (and nose) are critical in determining how much and what you eat. So when trying to be at your peak, it helps to eat healthy foods out of the most pleasing tableware possible. The Harmony Salad Set, made from acacia wood, aids in that effort by making every salad look as delicious as those in the pages of Fine Cooking. Sold with graceful servers, this mid-century modern look will entice you to load up on the kale.

  • Popsicle Molds

    Sweet Healthy Treats

    For many of us, we can be virtuously healthy until dessert comes along. The sugar gremlin sneaks up on us, and before you know it, we’ve eaten 3 chocolate cupcakes. Making your own frozen ice pops, such as these strawberry-cherry popsicles, is one way to keep your treats as sin-free as possible. Kitchen Paradise’s Popsicle Mold stands above others as its BPA-free molds fit tightly into the tray, they are easy to remove (a common problem) from the container, and drips go straight into the handle.
