5 Essential Tools for the Diabetic's Kitchen

If you’re diabetic, how you cook your food is as important as what you eat. Here are some kitchen tools you might want to put on your Christmas lists this year.

Foreman Grill

A Foreman Grill is a great way to cook your meats while draining them of unnecessary fats. The grill has channels that allow fats to drip out during the cooking process, leaving you lean and lovely servings.

Bamboo Steamers

Steaming is a great way to cook some meats and most vegetables without fats. Vegetables that are steamed are vibrant and crisp, retaining their healthy nutrients and fresh flavor. Stackable bamboo steamers allow you to make entire meals at once.

Nonstick Pans

Good nonstick pans can really cut the amount of fats you use to cook your foods. If your old ones have lost their non-sticking power, it’s time to toss them and pick up some new ones.

Fat Separator

If you love your homemade sauces, gravies and broths, a fat separator can help you to instantly remove all the excess oils from any liquid. Pour them out, and then enjoy what’s left without guilt.

Digital Scale

Make measuring your portions easy by keeping a convenient digital scale right on the counter top.
