Any big commitment, like aiming to eat healthy, can often seem overwhelming at first, which is why science often says to break it down into small, achievable steps. Having the right tools at hand to get the job done is the first step. It’s simple but true that you’re much more likely to continue eating better if your kitchen is well stocked with nutrient-dense ingredients and equipped with streamlined equipment that makes reaching your goals easier and even fun. Whether you’re trying to cook more oil-free, increase your fruit and veg intake, experiment with vegan cooking, or drink more water, there’s a smart (and seriously effective) gadget for that.
For healthy breakfasts, a heavy-duty juicer lets you start the day with antioxidant-rich juices you can sip on the go. The best air fryer, meanwhile, is also a convection oven so you can make crispy cabbage chips and roast a whole chicken at the same time. A speedy soup maker produces homemade squash soups and berry compotes in under 20 minutes and you can create rosemary spreads and butters like a farm-to-table chef with a plant-based infuser high tech.
If spending wisely is another of your goals, good news: you don’t have to invest a fortune in high-quality gear that encourages healthy habits. The most expensive pick here is $330 and many are under $150. As an added bonus, most are compact in size so they don’t take up too much counter space. Here, 13 of the best kitchen gadgets to help you whip, turn and juice your way to healthy eating this year.
