Kitchen & Food Storage
LODGE CAST IRON PANS
I love cooking with cast iron! I’ve got 4 skillets (6″, 10″ and 12″) and a Dutch Oven.
This chopper works great for nuts, cheese, and small quantities of just about anything. I love that it comes apart for cleaning and is dishwasher safe.
I love this chopper! I use it mostly for onions, peppers, and sometimes fruit–it produces tiny, uniform pieces. Perfect for salsa, soups, etc. Easy to disassemble and clean (dishwasher safe).
I sort of hate chopping herbs, and these scissors were the answer to my problem. Really handy!
WIDE MOUTH STAINLESS STEEL FUNNEL
I’m pretty sure I couldn’t live without this funnel. I use it almost daily!
8-CUP GLASS MEASURING CUP with LID
It’s a bowl! It’s a cup! I use it daily for soaking oats, beans, and nuts, as well as for straining homemade bone broth. It makes a great mixing bowl, too!
A versatile staple in my nontoxic kitchen. We use them for fridge storage, freezer storage, pantry organization, spice jars, flower vases, and more.
GLASS SNAPWARE FOOD STORAGE CONTAINERS
I own two full sets of these sturdy, nontoxic containers. Love them!
Stainless steel divided lunch containers. Love, love, love these little lunch boxes. We use them all. the. time.
VITAMIX PROFESSIONAL BLENDER
Arguably the best professional blender around; I use mine daily for smoothies, sauces, ice cream, baby food, batter, and more!
CUISINART ICE CREAM MAKER
Makes it easy to whip up dairy-free ice cream in 30 minutes, while you eat dinner.
THE RINGER CAST IRON CLEANER
Rust-free stainless steel chain mail removes tough grit from cast iron pans (and more).
STAINLESS STEEL MEASURING CUPS
These measuring cups are awesome! Their compact size allows them to slide easily in and out of dry storage containers and bags.
STAINLESS STEEL MEASURING SPOONS
I chose these spoons after quite a bit of research and have been very pleased. Highly recommend.
(Elana Amsterdam)–I love Elana’s recipe blog! This book is a great collection of some of her best recipes.
(Nina Plank)–Not technically a cookbook, and not exactly gluten-free, this is a must-read for anyone looking to makeover a regular American diet.
