Essentials for Your Clean Eating Kitchen

I get asked all the time what are some of my favorite tools for the kitchen. My kitchen is stocked full of tools that I think I’ll use but never do…I’m looking at you bench scraper.

However, there are a few tried and true items I use each and every day and have therefore tested the heck out of them.



  1. A Good Knife – I don’t believe you have to spend a fortune on knives. Maybe I’m frugal or maybe I just don’t see the need for a $500 knife that I have to then sharpen…who knows. I use the a Victorinox Swiss Classic 6″ Chef’s Knife. It is a work horse, inexpensive, and sharp as all get out.
  2. Cutting Board – I use my cutting board more than my counter tops. If you are going to invest in ANYTHING invest in a John Boos Chop-N-Slice 20-by-15-Inch Maple Cutting Board. They will last about as long as you can imagine just take care of it.
  3. Juicer – I juice…a lot. A LOT. So, a good juicer is a must. I have used a Breville JE98XL Juice Fountain Plus 850-Watt Juice Extractor and love it. It can juice a lemon without slicing it, making juicing while running out the door easy and quick. It is a beast to clean though…so keep that in mind.
  4. Juice Recipe Book – I am all about cookbooks but I think your kitchen needs a great book about juicing. Why? It will change your kitchen. I love The Reboot with Joe Juice Diet: Lose Weight, Get Healthy and Feel Amazing…read it and follow the recipe’s!
  5. Stainless Steel Cookware – You don’t need to spend a $1000 on a set of stainless Steel pans, to be honest. Good, solid, cookware is essential and these pans from Wolfgang Puck 18-Piece Stainless Steel Cookware Set are a staple in my kitchen. They’ve lasted years and conduct pretty amazingly. Obviously I don’t cook on the stovetop too often but when I do…I grab these pans.
  6. Induction Stove – I live in an apartment with that comes limited changes I can make to my home. I cannot buy and install a new stove…trust me I asked. I don’t  know why a Viking Range would be a problem. So, I discovered the NuWave Precision Induction Cooktop and rarely use my stovetop anymore. This is the best invention I have EVER used. Seriously get it…your life will never be the same.
  7. Mason Jars – Simply put…I use these guys for everything.
  8. Coconut Oil – I put this in about everything from fudge to juice. Coconut oil is my saving grace and my fav is Carrington Farms Organic Extra Virgin Coconut Oil, 54 Ounce.
  9. Hemp Protein – Man cannot live on juice alone…so I make sure to add a booster to my lunch juice to make sure my body is running on all cylinders. Manitoba Harvest Hemp Pro 70 Protein Supplement, 32 Ounce is my go-to. I usually pick it up at the Vitamin Shoppe every couple of weeks. It takes awhile to dissolve and can be a bit gritty…but I love it.
  10. Rohn Strong Recipes – Yup…I know, I know…totally self indulgent. Make sure you subscribe for blog updates below and check back each day for more!

  1. I recently bought a zester because I saw chefs using it to grate fresh garlic while cooking. I previously used a garlic press. However, I can’t manage to grate my garlic cloves that way without scraping the heck out of my fingers, knuckles, or fingernails. Am I doing something wrong?

  2. oh some of my fav items are vitamix, juicer, food processor, dehydrator, knives and ceramic cookware
