The 11 Kitchen Essentials I Can’t Live Without

healthy blogs

When it comes to living the healthy life, there’s no secret trick. A lot of the time, it comes down to preparation – and a healthy kitchen!


These are the 11 kitchen essentials I can’t live without:

  1. High Power Blender. I love my Vitamix and also use a Hamilton Beach Commercial Blender.
  2. Food Processor/Magimix. I use Kenwood!
  3. Wooden chopping boards – for chopping all my veggies.
  4. Vegetable peeler – the easiest way to peel all my fruit and veggies to minimise pesticides.
  5. Steamer – best way to prepare your veggies. Keep the nutrients in!
  6. Non-stick pan (small and large) for pan frying.
  7. Good quality big and small knives.
  8. Mixing bowls and spoons – for healthy baking of course!
  9. Kettle – for herbal tea! I love chamomile and lemon and ginger.
  10. Baking tray – essential for roast veggie perfection!
  11. Spatula – for any frying, mixing or spreading!


Fun extras:

  • Mortar and pestle – for herb and spice deliciousness.
  • Muffin and bread tins – healthy banana bread and muffins for sure!
  • Soup pot
  • Salad spinner – the quickest way to wash my greens.
  • Grater – apple for Bircher Muesli, parmesan cheese etc.!
  • Strainers – small ones for herbal tea, bigger ones for food.
  • Hand blender or stick blender – great for soups!
  • Tongs
  • Wooden Spoons
  • Mason jars for your smoothies!

Most of these appliances can be found at your local home ware or appliance store.
