It is post-holiday time so we need to focus more on healthful eating.
The LEKUE RICE AND PASTA COOKERS Pasta Cooker, Orange and Rice Cooker, Green will help to pave the way towards new eating habits. The LEKUE products come from the Catalonia region of Spain outside of Barcelona. Cooking with Lekue’s platinum silicone is completely safe and has many advantages. The pasta and rice cookers are non-stick and they don’t require any extra oils, saving added calories and fats. Pasta and rice cook much more quickly in the microwave and you can wash, cook, and drain your pasta and rice in the same container. The lid becomes the colander and voila you have fresh pasta or rice. The rice and pasta cookers can be used as a serving vessel at the table and the rice cooker can also be used for couscous, what, barley, oats, and other grains. Lekue is dishwasher safe as well.
Eating healthfully in the winter is helped by making stews and soups without added fats. The CUISINART CASTLITE 5.25 QUART DUTCH OVEN WITH COVER is a great way to cook lots of comfort food without added fats. I especially like this piece of cookware because it is has all the good qualities of cast iron cookware but it weights half the amount. It has the even heating of cast iron, exclusive Dupont Platinum Nonstick coating, has a porcelain enamel exterior, comfortable grip stainless handles, and is dishwasher safe. I tried it on a delicious chicken bouillabaisse with great results. I can’t wait to use it for my short rib stew!
There is a wonderful collection of mason jar/kitchen tools. The PL8 DRESSING EMULSIFIER has a wire whisk that swiftly blends and emulsifies salad dressings and marinades. I particularly like this tool because of the sealing lid, which keeps my dressings fresh in the refrigerator. The PL 8 CITRUS JUICER is convenient and also made out of a fabulous material called Tritan shatterproof, which is dishwasher safe. The PL 8 NUT CHOPPER has a handle that grinds coarse or fine nuts swiftly and easily. You can chop pretzels and candy pieces to create wonderful toppings for desserts.
