DAY 2: Get the Kitchen Tools You Need to Succeed
Today’s Goal: To gain an overall understanding of the basic must have meal prep kitchen tools, and the nice to have, but still very helpful tools. Divas completing this task will also learn how to purchase kitchen tools at a fabulous discount!!!!

TODAY’S EASY DIVA TASK:
1) Assess the list of must have and option tools.  Determine which items you have, and write down the items you need to purchase.  
2) Make a wish list of the items you need to purchase!!  Try to take advantage of holiday sales when purchasing; like those that are happening this 4th of July weekend !!


Alright divas, let’s get down to it!!  Let’s review both our personalized “MUST HAVE” and the “NICE TO HAVE” lists!! Please be aware, this is not a complete list but a great, great start.   

TOP 10 "MUST HAVE" Meal Prep Tools

1.  Meal Prep Containers (click here) or (click here)
Necessary to transport your prepped meals when you're away from home!  Make sure they are spill proof, microwave / dish washer safe, and fits in your lunch bag!

2. Multi-meal Lunch Bag (click here) or (click here)
Assists in transporting multiple meals while away from home!  My personal favorite bag!!  Large enough to fit our Fabulous meal prep containers!

3. Non-stick cookware (click here)
The Non-stick feature is key! Helps with making not just fabulous TASTING food but they will also LOOK fabulous too! I prefer ceramic or porcelain finishes!  Excellent even and FAST conductor of heat!

4. Nylon, Silicone or Wooden Cooking Utensils Set (click here)
No metal please!  This will ruin your non-stick cookware!  This fab set includes your measuring cups and measuring spoons!! Great price!

5. Knife Set (click here)
Chop your veggies, fruit, or protein with ease!!! A sharp knife set is key!

6. Parchment Paper and Aluminium Foil (click here)
Parchment paper is the best!!!! Prevents your protein / veggies from sticking to the pan! Better than foil!

7. Healthy Fat Cooking Oil (click here) or (click here)
Olive Oil, Coconut Oil, Avocado Oils are all great choices!  No Crisco divas!

8. Low Sodium, but Full of Flavor ALL Natural Seasoning (click here)
Too much sodium can adversely affect your weight loss goals!

9. High powered Blender (click here) or (click here)
Every diva loves a good green and/or fruit smoothie! The key to creamy smoothies is a quality blender!

10. Quality Food Storage Containers (click here)
Needed to store excess food that can be frozen or saved to prepare a meal later in the week!


A few "NICE TO HAVE" Meal Prep Tools

1.  Small Hand Juicer (click here)
Used to effectively juice lemons, oranges and other fruit for dressings, toppings, and smoothie ingredients

2.  Vegetti (click here) or (click here)
Some may say this is a MUST HAVE!  Helps to create a non carb noodle / "spaghetti alternative

3.  Mason Jars (click here)
Used to make jarred salads and overnight oats! Easy, convenient and tasty meals.  16 ounce jars are ideal for salads!

4.  Toaster Oven (click here)
Heats up far faster than standard size oven! Food cooks faster.  Convenient for single serving meals!

5.  Small Food Processor (click here)
Mince, chop, and grind a variety of ingredients to make salsa, soups, guacamole and others!
