Sticking to any diet is complicated, but it can be made easier by finding some kitchen equipment that will help you in the process.
Let's review some of them:
Keto is a low-carb diet, which means pasta and noodles are off the table. Having a spiralizer will help you create a great substitute: veggie noodles! They are just as tasty and even more nutritious than regular noodles.
We have two words for you: CAULIFLOWER RICE. Yes, you know it’s a keto basic and we strongly suggest you make it yourself with a food processor. Plus, this is another kitchen must-have for chopping and pureeing.
CUTTING/ CHOPPING BOARD
Keto does include lots of veggies (just try to stay away from the starchy ones), which means you’re going to be spending a lot of time chop, chop, chopping away. Having a big cutting board is a lifesaver.
Besides helping you create creamy bulletproof coffee (a.k.a keto coffee), this tool is a must-have for chopping and pureeing. It is especially useful for pureeing soups or making sauces.
Avocados are keto dieters’ favorite fruit (it's kind of the mascot of the keto diet), and it’s normal, because they make delicious additions to many dishes (like smoothies, omelettes, in place of French fries, etc), but, with avocados, you have to use it or lose it!
Pick up this container, and you’ll never end up wasting a leftover half ever again. The container reduces oxidation, so that meaty flesh will stay green and ripe until you’re ready to eat it.
DIGITAL FOOD SCALE
Even if you aren't a die-hard food tracker, weighing your food can help with portion control and precise measuring for recipes.
MEASURING CUPS AND SPOONS
These are important for the same reason the kitchen scale is important. You want to know exactly what your servings are, and measuring cups and spoons help you to do this. Also, measuring correctly leads to better-tasting recipes!
Even if they are pyrex containers, glass jars, or plastic ones, a meal prep staple is food containers. You will want enough to keep a few meals in the fridge, along with any leftovers.
Now, let's start cooking!
