We rounded up a list of our seven favorite kitchen tools to make cooking nutritious meals for your family faster, easier, and healthier. The best news is most of these tools are quite affordable!
Cast iron skillet: Trade in your non-stick cookware for a cast-iron skillet or pot. Cast iron cookware doesn’t scratch or degrade over time, and even better, you’ll avoid the harmful chemicals found in Teflon. In fact, simply cooking in a cast iron skillet is a great way to significantly increase your dietary intake of iron.
Fine mesh strainer: A fine mesh strainer is versatile enough for multiple uses – washing vegetables, straining pasta, rinsing grains, and even making your own nut milk. A strainer made out of stainless steel is durable even when the mesh is particularly fine.
