Every foodie needs a well-equipped kitchen. If you want to make healthy meals from home and have fun with it, consider adding these four kitchen gadgets to your arsenal.

1. Food Processor

Store-bought dressings and sauces come flooded with extra sugar and empty calories. A food processor has become an essential part of my healthy-eating regimen. I can whip up a sauce to drizzle on my veggies or a dressing to compliment my salad.

2. Kitchen Scale

Some recipes call for a certain amount of ounces of an ingredient. Some meal plans have you monitor exactly how much of each food to eat during the day. I love to use my kitchen scale since I count my macros and it helps keep me accountable. I won't eat too much—I will know that I am eating exactly the amount my body needs. You can measure out your portions as well and log your meal into your food diary with precision.

3. Meat Thermometer

How easy is it to overcook chicken and bite into a chewy, dry dinner that makes you want to order takeout? A meat thermometer will help you cook your steak to perfection—not overdone, not underdone. You will be much more likely to continue on a healthy eating plan when your meat comes out tender, juicy, and flavorful.

4. Vegetable Spiralizer

Zoodles, coodles, sweet patoodles! You can spiralize so many vegetables to replace a refined carb like pasta noodles. Your spiralizer can also better your salad presentation—top your greens with spirals of raw carrots, cucumber, onions, and/or peppers.
