Healthy Kitchen Cookware Part 2 - Keys to Good Nutrition and Tips to Eating Healthy

"Your health is your wealth." - Paul C. Bragg

Yesterday I shared with you about three important things you should have in your kitchen that are some of the to and to . Today I'd like to share about five other valuable things you need to have in your .

SEED GRINDER - Find yourself an inexpensive, compact, easy to clean, and easy to use little electric seed grinder for grinding up all of your own fresh nuts, seeds, and grains into a fine or coarse powder or flour in just a few seconds. A seed grinder is an essential kitchen gadget to assure the highest quality optimum nutrition from whole seeds, nuts, and grains. You never want to buy seeds, nuts, and grains in milled, crushed, or powdered form because they go rancid so quickly.

NATURAL UNTREATED WOODEN CUTTING BOARDS - Only use cutting boards that are made from natural and untreated hardwood. And clean them by wiping first with a wet cloth and then with a dry cloth. Never immerse them in water or put them in a dishwasher, which can warp and ruin them.

GRATERS - Get yourself a stainless steel grater that is extremely useful for slicing and grating fruits, vegetables, cheeses, etc. You can buy various shapes and sizes. One of the most versatile is a four-sided grater with each side being useful for different purposes.

ELECTRIC GLASS BLENDER - This is an essential appliance for making shakes and smoothies for you and your family. Make sure that you buy one that is durable and that has a blender container made of glass instead of plastic. These come in all makes and models, so be sure to pick yourself out one that is made of quality parts and will last you for a long time.

BABY-FOOD GRINDER - You can make the most nutritious and delicious baby foods in seconds if you have a simple, hand-operated, inexpensive, and durable baby-food grinder. It will transform vegetables, fruit, cereals, and other whole foods into finely-mashed baby food that is far more nutritionally-superior than canned baby foods and cheaper too. You can also use it to make dips, sauces, dressings, and other condiments.

I encourage you to have each of these things in your kitchen so that you can more easily cook healthy foods for your family. Tomorrow I will share about a few more essential healthy kitchen cookware that you don't want to live without. To your health, the
