16 Cooking Gadgets That Make Eating Healthy Easy

You've heard it a hundred times before – “Abs are made in the kitchen.”

And just like with most dead horses that have been beaten over and over again, there's a reason you keep hearing it. Because it's so true!

If you want to get your body summer-ready, 70% of the work lies in diet, yet all too often guys think they can eat like they did in their teens as long as they hit the weights from time to time. Sorry, Bud, but you'll need to put a little more effort in than that.

And with the shopping, paying a little extra for food, prepping, cooking, and portioning out your meals, you've most certainly got your work cut out for you. Never mind mustering the self control...

The right tools for a healthy lifestyle can go a long way towards making it as easy and painless as possible. Here are some interesting gadgets to help you eat healthier, tone up the body, and get looking like a stud again just in time for summer.

What Reviewers Say:

This is a #1 Bestseller in its class, you can bet people love talking about it.

  • I had to interrupt my cooking to write this review. Believe me, I am not easily moved to write product reviews. This would be my second here on amazon (since the writing of this review three years ago I have added many more product reviews here on amazon).
    But, this little turning slicer is amazing. Simply amazing.
  • I wanted to make my own curly fries. This vegetable slicer does that! I used the 1/4" blade and found that you must use the pressure handle on the unit to produce the best cuts. You do end up with a vegetable core which some people have complained on other reviews that it ends up being waste, but that really was not a big deal to me. I tried cutting up and frying the cores, but I didn't like them so now I just throw the cores away. It's very little waste anyway. I did find that smaller potatoes produced tighter spirals, but the smaller size also produced a lot "waste" where there were just short curved shaves of potato. Larger potatoes produced fewer of the tight spirals and much more of the swooping long spirals, but they also produced less "waste". Using a combination of large and small potatoes produced a good mix of curly fries for me. I fried them in the deep fryer, shook some sea salt on them, and they were YUMMY!
  • It performed much better than I expected. I really like it.
