In this day and age, we’re constantly bombarded with messages encouraging us to take better care of our bodies and to eat a healthy and balanced diet. Few can deny the benefits of living such a lifestyle, as the effects are not just apparent when you look at your slim figure in the mirror – you also feel healthier with more energy, which can improve your whole outlook on life.
We all know that we should be trying to live this way, but the reality is often all too different. Careful diets and exercise plans are always started with the best of intentions, but soon after the novelty factor wears off we lose heart and find ourselves right back at square one. Many people make the mistake of trying to make too dramatic a change right away – take healthy eating, for example, often people will embark on a new diet by cutting out all the unhealthy foods that they usually eat, and restrict themselves to a selection of bland and unappetising “healthy” alternatives. Is it any wonder that this diet plan isn’t followed for long? Sure, it’s easy to stick to it at first, but after a while you get a craving for a plate of chips with your dinner, and once you start down the slippery slope of going back to eating fatty foods it’s twice as hard to stop the second time around.
The simplest solution to stop yourself craving “unhealthy” foods, is to not give up eating them in the first place. All you need to do is invest in some new kitchen gadgets… There’s a range of low fat fryers on the market these days, such as the fantastic Philips Airfryer, which will allow you to continue eating a whole host of your favourite foods at the same time as sticking to the low-fat principles of your diet. They do this by cooking the food in a much healthier way, using no oil or fat at all other than what’s found naturally in the food. You can still eat a fried steak and chips for your dinner, safe in the knowledge that it contains none of the hidden saturated fats that are so harmful to your health.
The Airfryer is quite a clever little device, which works by blasting the food with super heat air as it’s cooked by the inbuilt grill element. The air circulates around the food ensuring that all the surfaces crisp up and cook to perfection, leaving it with the same texture as if it had been fried in a pan. There are many benefits of using the Airfryer other than just the health aspect though – as a kitchen appliance it’s second to none. Food cooks far quicker in an Airfyer than it would in a conventional oven or deep fryer, and the overall cooking temperature need not be as high which makes it far more energy efficient. All the parts that come in contact with your food are coated in a non stick covering, and are easily detachable so they can be washed in a dishwasher. The best thing, though, is that the Airfryer is not just a one-trick-pony, as it’s just as adapt at baking a cake or batch of cookies as it is at frying up a complete delicious meal.
So by making use of clever gadgets such as this in your kitchen it’s possible for you to cook healthy food that your whole family will enjoy eating. Gone are fad diets, meaning that you can eat sensibly all year round without having to give up those tasty favourites that we all enjoy so much.
