Healthy Kitchen Cookware Part 3 - Keys to Good Nutrition and Tips to Eating Healthy

Today I'd like to share the final part of this three part series on healthy . Using these kitchen items is one more of the to and to .

JUICER - Find yourself a good-quality that you can use to make fresh juice from organic vegetables and fruits. This is an excellent way to do an occasional reducing or cleansing juice fast. Also, if you have any kind of health disorder, vegetable juices and fruit juices can become an important part of your natural healing therapy. For every day use, be careful not to drink too much freshly made fruit or vegetable juices as they tend to be high in natural sugar content, which can effect your blood sugar and insulin. There are three major kinds of juicers on the market today: centrifugal, hydraulic press, and triturator. Hydraulic juices are superior, but they are quite expensive. Other types of juices are more resonably priced, so try to find one that is made from stainless steel because it will be more durable. Also, make sure that at least all the parts that can come into contact with the juice are made from stainless steel, not plastic.

SILVERWARE - Make sure to have some good quality stainless steel knives, forks, and spoons. Do not use the kind that have plastic handles because microscopic toxic plastic material can end up in your food and stomach.

CUTTING KNIVES - Get yourself a good quality collection of stainless steel kitchen knives of different sizes with wooden handles rather than plastic.

GRAIN MILL - If you're really serious about maintaining an optimum healthy diet, you'll want to be sure to make your own bread. In that case, you'll want to invest in an electric stone mill. These are not cheap, but they will help you grind your own grain just before baking your own bread. If you can't afford one of these, you can buy a hand-operated mill which is inexpensive and simple to use. These are simply clamped onto a table or countertop.

DOUGH KNEADER - If you intend to bake your own bread regularly, you may want to also invest in an electric dough kneader. It will make bread-making much easier and also will help to produce better-quality bread with less effort. If you already have a large mixer appliance, you might already have a dough kneader that came with it or you may be able to order one as an extra attachment.

I hope these five kitchen cookware items become a regular part of your kitchen and your cooking. These gadgets will help you prepare healthier food for you and your family. To your health, the
