The Best Disney Kitchen Gear to Inspire Healthy Eating Habits
As the end of January inches closer – and closer – how are you doing on your New Year’s resolutions? Since the vast majority of people give up on those fruitful, hopeful promises less than a month into the start of a new lap around the sun, February can serve as wake-up call. If part of your hope for this year was to truly and fundamentally shape your healthy eating habits and make smarter, more wholesome choices for you and your family’s diet, you might need an extra kick to get back on the wellness track. Since you’re already a Disney fanatic (hey, we all are!), why take the joy you derive from the fandom into your kitchen. From blenders and cutting boards to aprons and water bottles, let these Disney-inspired kitchen gadgets gear you up for success. After all, that summertime vacation to Orlando will be here before you know it:
If you haven’t been following on Instagram, cauliflower-crust pizza is a thing now. Though it doesn’t sound appealing at quick glance, once you nom into your first bite, you’ll come over to the veggie side. After you make your base, fill up your pie with plenty of healthy greens and nibbles, as well as smart proteins like chicken or fish. To make it even easier to replace your Dominos ritual with this better-for-you slice, invest in this Pizza Planet pizza pan to make you smile each time you whip it out.
Okay, so while not – technically – a kitchen gadget, this Mickey Mouse vacation lunch tote serves two purposes. Not only will it be at least a cute way to tote around your Sunday meal prep daily to work, but since it features a beach, you can also use it as motivation to stay focused on the beach. While all bikini and board short bodies are beautiful, if you’re trying to shed some weight, having Disney’s original beloved character sunning himself will keep you accountable and focused.
Though you might not have the severity of Celiac disease, many people have gluten sensitivities. Some clean eating programs like Whole30 challenge you to cut out common allergy culprits – like dairy, gluten or soy – to see how your body positively or negatively responds. If you have an inkling that bread is your enemy but can’t stomach the gluten-free varieties, toast the slices! It’ll taste even better with this Stormtrooper buy.
Since you can’t be 100-percent certain about how your meals are prepared when you eat out, many registered dietitians and nutritionists recommend making meals at home, where you have control of the ingredients. In fact, those who try to get into shape and give their diets a makeovers, create healthier habits when they’re serving it up in the kitchen. Cooking not your thing? Maybe when you can, ahem, play dress-up while you’re making an egg white omelet, you’ll feel as inspired as Snow White.
Look at this fork, isn’t it neat? Often times, finger foods – like cheeseburgers, tacos, pizzas and cookies – are some of the worst choices for your waistline. But those things you down with a fork, including salads, meat-and-veggie duos and noodles made of zucchini are better options. Just remember, you probably don’t want to make this Little Mermaid ‘dinglehopper’ double as a hair brush.
We all have those pals who are healthy seemingly, without trying, and you wanna know (one of) their secrets? Water, water, water! As a standard rule of thumb for most fitness enthusiast, H20 doesn’t just fuel your workout, but it will help you indicate if you’re hungry or bored. When you down one of these glitter Disney-inspired Swell bottle each time you’re in the mood for a snack or fatty Starbucks drink, chances are high you’ll feel less hangry ASAP.
