Healthy eating is a struggle. Deep down, we all know that it’s easier to just go to a convenience store, pick up a ready meal, and live with the guilt later. Thankfully, some wonderful products exist to make healthy eating just that much easier. We’ve rounded up some of the best healthy eating products currently available on Amazon. You’re welcome.
1. Make crispy baked sweet potato fries with this Spiralizer
Having a spiralizer in a draw will change the way you eat vegetables forever. Zuccini spaghetti, or easy potato baked fries. Here’s one of my favourite ways to cook sweet potatoes, using the very same Spiralizer. You can pick one up for less than $25.
2. Make prepping avocados a thing of absolute ease with this tool
We’ve previously talked about some of the best kitchen gadgets, and this is one that comes up time and time again. Avocados are a key staple of a healthy diet, and this removes some of the fuss that comes with eating them regularly. Personally, avocados are a bit of a struggle to cut and manage since they are so slippery. Slice and dice them quickly with this 3 in 1 tool from OXO.
3. This water infuser that will help you drink the summer away
It’s hugely important to drink a lot of water a day. You might think you drink a lot, but you probably don’t drink even close to enough. A little gadget like this can make drinking water every day a bit more exciting, plus give you a boost of micro-nutrients you might not get otherwise.
4. Make pineapple frustration a thing of the past with this corer
Pineapple is an absolute nightmare to prepare; I don’t think too many people would argue with that. Sticky, spikey, messy, blahegh. Using a corer like this can put pineapple back on the menu, so you can focus just on eating it. All for less than $10!
5. A Nutribullet alternative for morning smoothies, without the price tag
Nutribullets are the go-to of the fitness world for morning smoothies. Sure, they might do a slightly better job than a cheaper alternative, but you can get a pretty damn good blender for a third of the price. Enter this Epica blender. If you don’t believe the hype, have a look at some of the over 600 5* reviews.
6. Make watermelon headaches a thing of the past
Cutting watermelon is a stress that nobody needs in their life. Make it easier with this all in one chopper that you can pick up on Amazon for $10.99.
Bye bye sticky fingers.
7. This cutting board that handles all of your waste
A cutting board might seem like an odd inclusion, but after all, if you’re cooking things yourself chances are they will be better for you. This cutting board comes with a slideable drawer where you can store your waste, so that it doesn’t clutter up the board. When you’re done, simply pull the drawer and chuck the contents in the trash.
This idea is similar to the Frankfurter brett cutting board that went viral on Facebook recently.
8. Decrease your oil intake with this mister
Olive oil is a pretty healthy fat compared to others, but like all fats, it’s very high in calories. Do you need to cut out olive oil all together? Absolutely not – just consume it in moderation.
An oil mister like this can drastically reduce the amount of oil you are using on salads, or on pans, plus being cost effective.
9. Separate eggs with ease with this little gadget
Whilst many vegans might not agree with me, I’m in the camp that eggs are healthy as long as you eat them in moderation. Separating whites from the eggs is one way to eat eggs whilst making them a little healthier – so a little gadget like this can save a lot of frustration.
10. Eat more garlic by using this wonderful little gadget
Garlic is extremely beneficial to your health. It’s extremely anti-bacterial, reduces blood pressure, and a has a whole host of other benefits. This rocker is the best garlic press I’ve ever had. It’s already been included in our best kitchen gadgets Stack, but we couldn’t leave this one out.
11. Popcorn doesn’t have to be unhealthy with this popping machine
Now hear me out. Popcorn is so unhealthy because of the butter, sugar that people like to slather all over it. Corn itself, isn’t unhealthy at all. In fact it’s a great little snack because it’s so full of fibre.
12. These mason jars perfect for your morning smoothie
Smoothies and juices are a great way to start the day. They’re easy to digest, and super speedy to make. These mason jar styled portable cups are the perfect way to kick off the day to a good start.
Why not try this scrumptious recipe for banana breakfast smoothies?
13. This berry keeper that says no more mushy berries
Mushy berries are one of my pet hates. You want that perfect raspberry, only to find it’s been totally ruined from being at the bottom of the pack. These containers fix that problem by allowing air to circulate through all your berries and water to collect underneath.
14. This silicone baking tray that makes energy bars a sinch
Energy bars are also an extremely good way to start the morning. If you make a large batch, there’s no more time efficient way to have breakfast. This non-stick silicone baking tray is perfect for this, and will let you make 24 bars in ready-to-go bar shapes so you don’t have to mess around cutting them up.
Here’s a great recipe for banana and date granola bars that you could make in your new pan.
15. These herb cutting scissors makes adding herbs to dishes a breeze
I wouldn’t have said I’ve ever cried out for a way to cut herbs faster, but hey, it exists. These herb cutting scissors certainly do speed up meal preparation, especially if you’re adding a few fresh herbs to a dish. Just something that will make home cooking that bit easier.
16. Make delicious home-made, portion controlled, Pasta in your kitchen
Again this brings me back to the fact that I’m a huge advocate of home cooking. Food you’ve made yourself you can be totally sure that it has no nasties inside. Real, fresh pasta is a gorgeous thing to make, and in moderation, there’s nothing wrong with it.
There are other cheaper options available for pasta makers, but this stainless steal number, produced in Italy is our top pick and most worth it.
17. Combine your pasta maker with this book to cram a few more nutrients in
Whilst this is a bit of a cheat, it’s one of the most popular pasta-making recipe books on Amazon, so you can hardly go wrong. Some healthy pasta recipies include Asparagus stuffed ravioli and instructions for spinach flavored pasta doughs.
18. Make frozen yoghurt a regular guilt-free treat with this Cuisineart fro-yo maker
Everyone deserves a treat now and then. If you’ve made a decision to eat healthier, that’s no reason to mean you can’t have a sweet treat from time to time. Fro-yo is a fantastic way to do this. It’s natural, and you can include a ton of good bits to maximise how many micro-nutrients you’re getting.
This frozen yoghurt maker from Cuisineart is just what you need to make Fro-yo on the regular. If you’re looking for some frozen yoghurt recipes, you could try this Mango, Coconut and Lime fro-yo, or this one with honey and beetroots.
