2 OXO Good Grips Soap Dispensing Palm Brush – a necessity for cleaning the spiralizer!

3 Cuisinart Steel Rechargeable Salt & Pepper Mills – grinding your salts and peppers adds more robust flavor and avoids using processed packaged salts.

4 Old Dutch 24oz Solid Copper Hammered Moscow Mule Mug – I’m all about these copper mugs and every healthy cook deserves a cocktail after cooking!

5 Cuisinart 3.5 Quart Programmable Slow Cooker – digital programmable slow cookers are my favorite and this 3.5 quart is the perfect size for those who don’t need to cook for a big family.

6 Kuhn Rikon Vase Oil Mister – this allows the healthy cook to control how much oil is used during cooking AND you can infuse your oils with fresh herbs.

7 OXO Good Grips Food Scale – to keep your portions controlled, a food scale is a big help since when following along to healthy recipes, you’re going to need to be exact on measurements and weights.

8 OXO Good Grips Potato Masher – when I don’t have crushed tomatoes on hand, I crush the tomatoes in the skillet with a potato masher, like this. It’s a super helpful, quick trick!

9 DKNY Round Salad Bowl – all healthy cooks eat salad, right? Why not give them a gift to serve in style (it makes salad way more exciting!)

10 Cuisinart Mini Prep 3-Cup Food Processor – food processors allow you to make your own healthy sauces instead of buying canned ones with added preservatives. Also, this is what I use to make Inspiralized rice!

11 Guacamole Bowl – I mean, this needs no explanation. How cute!

12 Mr. and Mrs. Muse Salt and Pepper Shakers by Jonathan Adler – it can sometimes be tough to convince your boyfriend/girlfriend to eat healthy, but if you set the mood right with cute accents like this, it helps!

13 Calphalon Nonstick Flatbottom Wok – stir-fries are best made in woks, because of the temperature control offered by the shape of the wok. Stir fries are a quick and easy way to whip up a healthy Asian-inspired Inspiralized meal!

14 Browne Cuisipro 13″ Silicone Pasta Tongs – soft pasta tongs are ideal for tossing vegetable and fruit noodles, since they’re gentler.

every night, I have this ritual where I scroll through the photos taken from the day on my phone and pick a favorite, posting it up on my stories with the hashtag #favoritepicoftheday. it’s a fun, sometimes therapeutic way to end and reflect on the day. as I was going through it tonight, the TV was on and I heard the news. ruth bader ginsburg passed away tonight. immediately, I felt sadness and a bit of worry. a worry of the implications politically of her passing. there’s so much at stake in this upcoming election and you all know I don’t get political on here very often, but seeing roma’s little smiley, silly face made me realize that if I’m not being a good role model and using this platform to make the world a better place for her, what kind of mother am I? so VOTE, VOTE, VOTE. 🇺🇸 and as the late RBG said, “real change, enduring change, happens one step at a time.” here’s my step. 💕 #rbg #ruthbaderginsburg ...

testing new recipes for my partnership with @cookunity and figured I'd share more about it, in case you're new here or missed the announcement earlier this summer (it's still summer, isn't that crazy?! I'm mentally in fall mode already 🍂☕)⁣

you can order four of my recipes (Lentil Meatloaf with Cauliflower Mash, Turkey Bolognese and Sweet Potato Noodles, Spiralized Beet Arroz con Pollo, and Beef Taco Skillet) completely cooked and delivered to you! all you have to do is heat them up and they're ready for eating - I'm always impressed and shocked by how fresh they look and taste! 👏🏼 and don't forget to use code INSPIRALIZED for $50 off your first #cookunity order 💰⁣

next up? my Kale and Butternut Squash Lasagna! Lu tested it out for me today and he said, "it's just as good when you make it at home!" so, needless to say, get excited for this meal - and stay tuned for an announcement when the meal becomes available for delivery (so soon - subscribe to my newsletter, link in profile to stay in the know!) 📥⁣

are you excited for this recipe? I'd love to know!⁣

that's all. savoring the final days of summer and then the cozy fall days, enjoying meals in our backyard. 🌳
