ICYMI: One of our previous daily digests highlights the nutritional aspects of eating healthy with technology.
Sous vide is a healthy way of fat-free cooking
Yes, sous vide cooking does take a lot of time but the end result is healthier and tastier. In fact, due to the amount of time that goes into the cooking process, sous vide cooking requires little or no salt or additional fat. This method helps you enjoy cooked meals without spoiling your daily diet and routine.
This must-have kitchen companion does the legwork for your recipes to ensure you get only the best flavors. Mellow has the capacity to fit up to six portions at once so you can serve the entire family. Simply fill with water and use the Mellow bags for your food.
Considered to be every top chef’s special weapon for perfect cooking, the Nomiku sous vide helps you achieve that kind of perfection at home. The design is small and compact which makes it highly portable, too. You just have to clip it to the pot you’re cooking in and adjust the temperature with the green knob.
Oil-free ways of cooking
We’ve all heard about air fryers by now but the latest ones are even smarter with technology. Using an air fryer is a great and healthier alternative to deep frying. Plus, you’ll feel like you have a cheat day every time you use it (without feeling guilty, of course!).

Build your own smart garden for salads
Eating green has always been a mantra for healthy living. And, if you grow your own herbs, you can enhance your salad flavors even more. Traditional gardening is pretty time-consuming, but a smart garden gives anyone a green thumb.
It’s easy to get started with a smart herb garden. Just plug it into a wall socket and fill the water tank once a month or so. Loaded with the latest technology, the built-in sensors keep your greens as healthy as can be so they taste their best.

Healthy drinks and desserts for cheat days
No matter how hard you try to stay away from sweets, there’s always a craving. Rather than deprive yourself and ultimately binge eat your way through a box of cookies, set aside time during the week to treat yourself.
Perfect for smoothies and sweet desserts, the Ventray Juicer can handle it all. Requiring little cutting, the juicer has a wide chute to adapt to all sizes of food. However, even with this power, it uses just 65 RPM to achieve a nice consistency.

Keep your hydration in check

Incredibly intelligent, this drinking vessel uses infrared technology to tell you the nutritional value of your beverages. Connecting to an app, the Eightcups can determine which beverages you drink during the day. It can determine juice varieties, types of coffee, and so much more.
