Maintaining a healthy diet and lifestyle always seems easy until our lives get busy and convenience begins to trump caloric intake. The trade-off is that typically fast food is laden with sugar, fat, salt and those dastardly carbohydrates. 

The trick to overcoming temptation and successfully maintaining a healthy diet and lifestyle is to set yourself up so that it is quick and easy to make tasty and nutritious meals in a flash. Since healthy living begins in the kitchen, we’ve outlined a few small appliances to help get you started on the road to cleaner living.

Blend your way to better health

Blenders are an essential when it comes to leading a healthy diet and lifestyle. In a matter of minutes you can prepare yourself an energising fruit smoothie, blend together a wholesome dip loaded with fresh vegetable goodness, or a hearty and healthy warm soup. 

To get the most out of your blender, choose a high powered unit that is able to crush ice and nuts with ease. Being able to grind all your ingredients together into a high-protein smoothie is a great way to pack in all of those vitamins and minerals and keep yourself fuelled throughout the day.

Ease the pressure of everyday healthy cooking

One of the best ways to help maintain your discipline when trying to stick to a healthy eating plan is to prepare your food before you start to feel hungry. If your meal is already prepared before you get home from work, you’ll be far less likely to be tempted by the allure of quick and easy junk food. While a slow cooker can help you to prepare meals hours before you’re ready to eat them, a pressure cooker can cook a tasty and nutritious meal in a hurry. 

One popular favourite is the Midea Instachef, which offers you the best of both a slow cooker and a pressure cooker, along with 20 preset cooking functions allowing you to prepare a full healthy meal at the press of a button. It also features a 24-hour timer function designed to suit modern busy lifestyles, which allows you to prepare your meal before you leave for work in the morning and then set the timer to have it freshly cooked for you the minute you get home.
