12 Gifts For The Health Conscious Foodie

Whilst you can follow a healthy Paleo Diet with little more than a chopping board and a few pans, there are some great kitchen gadget and tools that surely any foodie would love in their kitchen.

Here’s my list. What’s on yours?

1. Dehydrator

I’ve had good results making jerky and kale chips in my oven, but I would love to try a dehydrator

2. Vitamix Blender

The Rolls Royce of blenders, able to grind nuts into nut butters and even cook soup. I want one!

3. A Good Set Of Knives

I really miss a good knife set, but have yet to find a good brand available in Australia (without needing a small mortgage). Any recommendations gratefully received!

4. Pressure Cooker

I’ve seen so many recipes that use a pressure cooker to make exceptionally tender meat – and I’d love to try it out for myself.

5. An Old School Mincer/ Meat Grinder

Even though I have a good butcher, I’d love to be able to make my own minced/ ground meat

6. A Big Slow Cooker/ Crockpot

I didn’t realise how much I’d love this method of cooking, when I bought my small slow cooker. I wish I’d bough a much bigger one, as whenever I cook I always like to make enough for lots of future meals at the same time.

7. A Heavy Hardwood Chopping Board

A good chopping board last for years and is so much more hygienic than those nasty plastic chopping boards.

8. Mandoline Slicer

A great way to cut up vegetables evenly

9. Meat Thermometer

The best way to cook a perfect roast is using science after all!

10. Sausage Stuffer

Once I have my meat grinder, I’d love to make my own Paleo Sausages.

11. Water Filter

I have a Brita water filter jug in the fridge – but what I’d really like is a water filter on my tap, to ensure all the water is filtered before it leaves the tap.

12. Salad Spinner

This would be great for summer and making sure the kale is dried properly before making kale chips.

Do you have any of these items? How do you find using them?

What would be on your Paleo diet kitchen wish list?

    If you can get forschner knives by victorinox in Oz, get them. They’re $30 in the US. Great knives, and usually highly rated by Cooks Illustrated.

    Lol – I have a few of those things on my Christmas list too!

    I use Global Knives – they are totally awesome for the price IMO (and as an ex-chef I’ve used quite a few other more expensive brands). The fact that they are one piece also means they last much longer and there’s no worry about bugs living in the handle join.

    I was hoping Santa would bring me a slow cooker for Christmas but it doesn’t look like it’s going to happen.
    Can anyone recommend a good one to snaffle in the Boxing Day sales?

    I had a mandolin slicer until I sliced some potatoes and ended up in emergency with the side off my thumb. Careful watch you wish for. Check out the injuries on line, there lots of dumb people just like me. ;0). Love my pressure cooker and slow cooker, but best is the jerky in the dehydrator.
