Non-Stick Frying Pan/Wok

When cooking your own food, it’s important to have a large non-stick frying pan/wok, as you will be cooking so much it will become like a third hand. Make sure you choose non-Teflon, heavy based pan as less harmful chemicals will leech into your food, it will last longer and the heat distribution is superb.   Shop WOKS

Steamer

If eating raw veg is too much for you (as it is for most of us) then steaming is the next best thing. Steaming your veggies will reduce the loss of nutrients from the veggies in comparison to boiling or roasting. (Put away that microwave!) SHOP Healthy Cooking

Blender, Juicer and NutriBullet

Blenders are essential for creating beautiful marinades, soups,  making post workout smoothies and delicious healthy desserts.

Food Storage

If you use the Sunday ritual or pre-cook your foods every evening for the next day, then good Tupper ware and food bags are essential. If you are pre chopping veggies then get some medium zip lock bags to store them in to speed up the cooking process. You can also marinate meats with herbs and spices in these overnight to enhance flavour.

Of course for beans, nuts, coffee and spices, you will need attractive food storage both see through and opaque.   SHOP CANNISTERS

Baking Pans

Both for roasting fresh vegetables and meats. Add a poacher if possible.

Measuring cups & spoons

Measuring cups and spoons are valuable in a regular kitchen but when trying to eat healthy, it’s your go-to for specific measuring to ensure that the food you’re making is still healthy.   shop MEASURING CUPS

Strainer

Use a strainer (both large and mini) to remove seeds from limes and lemons, to drain the liquid from canned beans and then rinse them.

Box Grater

The box grater has a built in mandolin one on side, and three different types of graters on the other three sides. It makes tasks such as shredding anything from carrots to cheese, to slicing cucumbers or zucchinis or apple for apple chips much easier.

Great Nonstick Cookware 

Investing in a great pot set or even one pan will encourage you to cook at home much more – which means 100% control over what’s in your food – since food won’t be sticking to it, and there won’t be a huge scratchy mess to clean up and your entire cooking process will flow much better.
