What's In This Blog

I created this blog for my journal. I am a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. In this blog I keep many of the things I come across as a member of the church. I also share my experiences on the ACE Train and getting to work, my experiences in Manteca where we have lived for three years, and other things I think are noticeable.

Health As I See It: Eight Kitchen Gadgets that Help Cut Weight

http://www.everydayhealth.com/weight-loss-pictures/kitchen-gadgets-to-help-you-lose-weight.aspx?pos=1&xid=nl_EverydayHealthManagingDiabetes_20140706#/slide-1

This is a link to an article from Everyday Health.  We only have a couple of the gadgets mentioned:
Smaller dishes equal smaller portions, less calories.  We have smaller plates.
Lemon squeezer, we have this.  I love to squeeze lemons and freeze the juice.
Citrus Zester.  This is like a grater for your citrus peels.  The grated peels can be used for adding flavor to your meals in a way with less calories than oils, and less negative effect than salt.
Vegetable steamer: Steaming is a healthy way to cook food without added fats.
Slow Cooker: This is another tool we have.  Slow cooking helps to cook meets in their own juisces rather than adding calories or fat.  It is also a simple way to cook healthy food.
Oil Mister: Spraying on oil to avoid over using oil is a good idea.
Kitchen scale: Portion control cannot really be don without a scale, and is so important for portion control.
Immersion Blender: I would really like one of these.  This is a whipper/ beater you can put in your drink.
Salad spinner:  A spinner can make salad making easier, and consequently more likely.  Also a dry salad holds dressing better so you can use less.
All good ideas.  I would really like a citrus zester next.
