On my quest for healthier living, I’ve spent a lot more time in the kitchen experimenting with healthy recipes and trying new kitchen gadgets.

I love cooking in general but over the past few years, I’ve found a few gadgets for the kitchen that are truly game changers for me! I thought I would share them with you in case you want to make your own healthy eating journey a little easier and more fun.

And if you find one you like and grab it with one of my links, I’ll get a few cents to help keep this blog up and running. Win win!

So what makes my top 5 kitchen essentials list? It’s not a typical list of knives or mixing bowls. I think it’s a given that we all need those things.

But when making my list of must-have kitchen gadgets, I wanted to focus on three things; usefulness, novelty, and the happiness factor.

Healthy eating isn’t always the fun choice. But I have to say that using one of these gadgets always brings a smile to my face!
