If you are used to grabbing something on the go, eating on keto can be hard.
Generally speaking, most fast food options are smashed between two pieces of bread.
If you have ever been interested in learning to cook, food preparation or you just love kitchen gadgets this is for you.
1. Pressure Cooker
In my option, the pressure cooker is essential regardless of diet. If you don’t know much about pressure cookers, it is pretty much like a slow cooker and a microwave had a baby. Imagine cooking a roast for an hour and it being so tender you can slice it with a butter knife. If you don’t have a pressure cooker, it should be high on your list of kitchen upgrades. If you are “old school” there are stovetop pressure cookers as well.
Blenders are good for much more than making fruit and vegetable smoothies. While recreating your favorite Starbucks and Tropical Smoothie Cafe drinks are in order, throwing items that need mixing in the blender will knock minutes off your favorite new low carb recipes. I personally enjoy mixed drinks fresh out of the blender.
While most modern blenders can chop, slice and dice food, a true kitchen gadget guru would want a dedicated food processor.
4. Measuring Cups/Spoons
Once you get knee-deep into the ketogenic diet, you will definitely want to try to recreate your non-keto favorites. Low carb versions of bread, pasta, cakes, pies, cookies and much more will require lots of measuring and a complete measurement set is in order.
Once you realize that the ketogenic diet is now your life, a brand new mixer might be in order. While a hand mixer will do for most situations, modern stand mixers can really mix up ingredients quickly. With bread, kneading is sometimes necessary and a kneading hook will save your hands a lot of work. This is by far the most expensive item on the list but it also looks the coolest on your countertop.
