Vidalia Veggie Chopper
Vidalia Veggie Chopper Image

Sure, you can use a knife … and I do, a lot of the time … but this little gadget makes heavy chopping for salads and soups almost fun, the pieces are in perfect little squares, which increases the surface area for more flavor, and also makes for beautiful presentations.

Kuhn-Rikon Epicurian Garlic Press
Kuhn-Rikon Epicurian Garlic Press Image

I’m of the “crush garlic” camp (so is Andrew Weil, by the way), to maximize the heart-healthy allicin. This is the first garlic press I’ve absolutely loved … which may sound silly until you try it!

Stainless Steel Pan
Stainless Steel Pan Image

This is a beautiful all-around pan that with proper care, will last FOREVER> It’s an investment up front, but over the decades will pay you back with a beautiful sear, delicious browned bits, and no crazy chemicals like nonstick pans!

Vitamix Blender

It’s an investment (to be sure), but a huge investment in your health! Turn fresh veggies and fruits into soups, smoothies, spreads, and more in seconds. Grind nuts into fresh nut butter, or turn a handful of seeds, nuts, and grains into instant breakfast mix. I use this at least every other day, and everything it makes is delicious!

Kolder Salad Dressing Bottle
Kolder Salad Dressing Bottle Image

This bottle has simple salad dressings printed right on the side of the bottle, for easy measuring. Once you get a hang of the basics, it’s easy to try new ideas on your own – add garlic, spices, etc. You definitely won’t go back to store-bought dressings!

Shun Classic Chef's Knife (or a great knife you love)
Shun Classic Chef



OK, so this is a top-of-the-line example, but find a knife you love to hold, and then hold it every day! Really, don’t buy a knife until you’ve been to the store and tested it – it would be like buying a car without test-driving it. For a healthy lifestyle, you and your knife will become best of friends.
