Sperry Wellness Top 5 Kitchen Gadgets

Add these must have cooking staples to your Amazon Wish List, Birthday, or Christmas list.

After publishing my first e-cookbook as part of my health coaching program, I wanted to post these to my blog as an addendum because many of my recipes call for these kitchen tools, and I've gotten some questions on them. I can't stress enough, I use each of these EVERY week and swear by them as they make meal prepping, cooking, and getting food on the table fast and efficient. If you are busy, but still aim to cook healthy meals for yourself (and family) vs getting takeout every night, then these are a must add on to your kitchen cabinets or pantry.

1. Vitamix Blender I use this one not just every week but every DAY. Yes you read that right. I make multiple smoothies in my house every day with this, and some evenings I even use it for soup. Throw in all the ingredients, turn it on and wha-la, breakfast, lunch, or dinner is served in less than 10 minutes. Not joking. Want a few additional recipes, try this Vitamix Cookbook by Jodi Berg. I also like the Ninja for a cheaper version.

2. Instant Pot Anything you regularly cook on your stove top (any kind of soup) or in your oven (any kind of meat or fish dish) can be done in the Instant Pot, but much faster due to the high temps it reaches. You will also save time on clean up duty (only one pot to clean) and they are energy efficient saving your money on your electricity bill over the long term.

I love putting dinner into the crockpot early in the day before everyone leaves the house (or works from home during a pandemic) and letting it simmer on low for hours. Its leaves the house smelling and feeling so warm and cozy especially on a rainy or cold day. Try this California style healthy chili recipe in the crockpot. It's low on the spice factor, making it kid friendly, full of nutritious vegetables, and one the whole family will love...I promise!

4. Juicer

If your goal is to increase the number of fruits and vegetables you take in on a daily basis, I highly recommend getting a good juicer. There are many different kinds and brands that work just fine. My biggest pain point with most of them on the market, is there are alot of different pieces to store which also means more pieces to clean. So I like the smaller compact ones that are simple to put together like the Nama Cold Press Juicer. At $399 it runs a little cheaper than some of the others. They also have tons of guides/recipes on their site and their customer service is great!

5. Rice Cooker I cook a ton of brown rice over the weekend to have throughout the week and many of my recipes on my e-cookbook call for rice. From stirfry's to salmon & rice to chicken & rice it's an easy side to add to any entree.

While the traditional methods work just fine, the rice cooker just helps expedite the process if you are busy. I would not spend up on the higher end brands, any basic rice cooker off amazon will work but this is the one I prefer. You can also use it to make oatmeal in the mornings, and steam veggies on the quick.
