Day 25: Equip Your Weight-Loss Friendly Kitchen | 30-Day Weight Loss-athon

It’s time for Day 25 of the 30-Day Weight Loss-athon.

All tasks in the 30-Day Weight Loss-athon are adapted from my 52 Weight Loss Missions program.

Read the steps first, then take 10 minutes to complete them.

Move fast, act quickly and stop over-thinking. Ready?

What You Need:

Step 1

Today we’re going to make sure you have all the tools and gadgets necessary to prepare the food and beverages that a slim minx like you’re becoming needs to prepare.

You may need some or all of these:

  • Scales
  • Non-stick pans and pots (so you need less cooking fat)
  • Non-stick wok for stir-fries
  • A grill that allows fat to drip off
  • A food processor to save time
  • A blender for healthful smoothies
  • Freezable storage containers – so you can make extra serves when you cook
  • Good quality knives
  • Steamer
  • Good quality cooking utensils (spatula, wooden spoon, etc).

If something is ancient, rusty, broken, hard to wash, excessively noisy, or unpleasant to use, consider replacing it. We want to make it as easy as possible for you to prepare weight-loss-friendly meals, so equip yourself with tools that are easy to use and enjoyable to work with.

Make a list of any kitchen equipment you need.

Step 2

Now we need to review the weight-loss-friendly recipe binder we put together on Day 21 for any other equipment we may have forgotten.

Look over the cooking methods in your recipes to identify any other tools you’ll need for your healthful, weight-loss-friendly meals.

Step 3

Make a date with yourself to go shopping – and equip your weight-loss-friendly kitchen!

    I have too many utensils if you ask my husband! A huge plastic box full of stuff in the basement because it won’t all fit in my house! It is time for new measuring cups though, mine are cracking – need glass ones instead of plastic!

  2. Sarah Jane Trahar says:

    I really should buy some scales, but I brought new runners and trackpants instead this week…maybe I’ll grab some when supermarket shopping on the weekend, and put them in that budget 🙂

  3. Linda Clemmons Gooden says:

    A couple of friends of mine have made fun of how many kitchen gadgets I have, but looking over this list, I have everything I need. Of course, I could use a wok and steamer, so I’ll put that on my list to buy.

  4. Stacey Laper says:

    OK the only item needed is a new blender, but that is NOT in the budget this month. It’s ok though, everything else is set to go and the blender is not dire to dieting. I will most likely purchase it at the end of the school year for the summer ;).

  5. Amy Egley Saville says:

    Since my husband and I cook all the time we have all of the above items in our kitchen already. I feel prepared to cook and eat healthier everyday. I also feel that these missions have given me the motivation to put my kitchen to work for my benefit.

  6. Suzie Waltner says:

    Ooooo….I love this excuse for buying some fun kitchen items! I’ve been looking at food processors for a while now. I think the time to pick one up is now. I also need to pick up some freezer containers to store leftovers!
