If you’ve resolved to eat healthier in the new year, buying the right foods is only half the equation – preparing and making those fresh greens and whole grains tasty is equally important. Without the right kitchen tools, healthy cooking and eating could be a resolution scrapped by February.
“A lot of people think they have to be a gourmet cook to eat healthier, and that’s definitely not true,” says Karen Goldberg, a registered dietitian and owner of Nutrition 101 in Wayne. “You can do a lot of different, interesting food prep with simple gadgets.”
Erin Palinski, registered dietitian and founder of the Vernon Nutrition Center in Ramsey, agrees, and says that when you have the correct kitchen tools, “you’ll be more likely to eat at home, make your own meals and eat healthy.”
