Healthy Eating FTW! My Food Prep Favs from Amazon

Healthy Eating FTW! My Food Prep Favs from Amazon

I love making things, cooking, baking.  Have been eating a bit healthier after a few changes in the diet/exercise category back in January.  I generally feel healthier, happier, and that my life is better since. I don’t really blog about food much because it’s a time I like to put my phone down. I find it relaxing. I usually put on music or a show and take my time creating things to eat.

I have, however, been using some badass kitchen appliances I’ve bought over the last year and they’ve helped with the food prep and healthy eating. I love making a bunch of things on Sunday afternoon, I’ve even started planning them.


We’ve been at the cottage the last few days and the weather is amazing. I’ve got the windows open, music on, and I’m putting things in the oven and prepping food, while typing away on this week’s work.

When I look out the window the leaves are falling every few seconds and catching sunshine on the way down.


Instant Pot: Last year for Christmas I got Sean (well, us!)an Instant Pot electric pressure cooker and I use it so much. I love that little thing. It’s great for cooking a bunch of chicken breast, rice, stew, chilli. I even made up a risotto recipe. I’m planning to get more adventurous and try some new stuff this winter.

Spiralizer: I’m obsessed! I would love to get an electric one but I have read some bad reviews so I haven’t ordered one yet. If you have a reco, LMK! My favourite things to spiral are cucumber, carrot, or beets for salad, zucchini as pasta, carrot for spaghetti, or onion for everything.

You can spiral stuff at the start of the week and store it in a container or ziplock bag with a paper towel and it will keep for a few days. 

Magic Bullet: I use this a lot for salad dressing or sauce for my zucchini noodles. It’s great for smoothies etc but that is obvs.

Garlic Crusher: I love this little OXO guy more than the one you can order without the rubber handle. It’s easier on the hands. I tried a small metal garlic rocker I saw on Buzzfeed but it didn’t work that great (this one $5.79).
