Even though you probably know what foods to avoid, having the right kitchen tools at your fingertips can make all the difference!
And especially if you're on a mission to lose weight or keep any extra kilos at bay.
Kitchen gadgets that make it easy to slash calories and fat
Having a blender on hand is one thing, but there are a few extra go-to kitchen gadgets that make it even easier to stick to your weight loss goals. Here are three:
Immersion blender. This fantastic hand-held tool lets you whip up healthy smoothies and tasty soups in next to no time, in just about any container. Find them at your local supermarket, hyper, or order them online at takealot.com.
Grater / zester. This is a great tool to use for grating cheese because you end up using a lot less (cheese can be very fatty). It's also handy for grating small amounts of chocolate – go for dark chocolate! And if you want to add some zero-calorie flavour to meals, grate some fresh citrus zest over your veggies, fish, or chicken.
Muffin tins. Did you know that you can use your muffin tin to bake small quiches? Pair a couple of these veggie or lean-meat filled pastries with a big salad and you have yourself a healthy, filling lunch or light supper!
