Here is a comprehensive ONE STOP SHOPPING list that has all the items I have recommended throughout all my posts. Many of these are available in your local stores, but some are specialty items.
FOOD AND DRINK:
Sugar Free Syrups – There’s no better way to make a low fat latte ! These come in all sorts of flavors from simple to sophisticated.
Pop Chips – an awesome snack coming in at only 100 calories for a nice portion bag.
FiberGourmet Pasta – anything that can give me more pasta per square calorie is OK in my book ! This stuff is amazing ! Use it anywhere you would use regular pasta, like pasta salads or macaroni and cheese. It even beats the whole wheat versions coming in at just 130 calories per 4 ounce serving !
Citrus Zester – hands down the best citrus zester I have used – this makes nice small gratings suitable for cooking, salads, baking, etc.
Steamer Basket – Steamed veggies can be great when the right spices are added. Don’t shy away thinking ‘steamed’ means bland. For instance, try these lemony steamed green beans.
Garlic Chopper – a great invention – this takes all the effort out of mincing garlic and it is so much fresher tasting than the bottled pre-minced stuff.
Chocolate Mill – great for shaving chocolate atop desserts and lattes !
Espresso Maker – If you’re in the market for one, I highly suggest this. It makes THE BEST espresso.
Dutch Oven – every kitchen needs a Dutch oven – some recipes just do not come out the same without one. It is a very heavy duty pot that allows you to cook things slowly for hours without burning the contents. From soups to stews to sauces, this is a kitchen must have.
Grill Basket – forget kabobs – put all the ingredients in the basket and cook away. Make a great “Mexican Kabobs” recipe in a snap !
Avocado Slicer – hands down, the best way to slice an avocado in to perfect slices
Kitchen Scale – I like to take the guess work out of weighing things – this is a great tool when you are watching your weight
