yummsgrillmat

Yumms! BBQ Grilling Mat – I love to grill, but I usually spend a lot of time making up little foil packets so I don’t lose my chopped veggies in the grill.  The Yumms! Grill Mats are so neat!  They sit on top of the grates to prevent small food from falling into the fire.  Make sure you don’t put them close to open flames or they will catch fire!  Let the fire die down before placing them on your grill.  They are super easy to use and wash.  You can even cut them to size if you have a smaller, travel grill!

coppermug

100% Copper Mug – I have recently switched over to glass straws and love how they make my drink taste so much better and colder.  The solid copper mug is no different!  It’s made of 100% pure copper with no plating or lining.  The mug is handmade and has a welded handle so there is no leaking.  It’s got a food-safe lacquer on it to preserve the look of it, but copper ages beautifully when well cared for.  

veggiesteamer

Stainless Steel Veggie Steamer – Sometimes, I will buy those bags of frozen veggies that you can steam in the microwave.  I do this out of laziness on occasion, but also convenience.  I often wonder how much of the nutrients I am losing by using those.  I love my veggie steamer from Sunsella.  It’s made of 100% stainless steel and is so easy to use.  Since it is collapsible, it fits a variety of pot sizes.  You just put it in your pan, place in enough water to come up to the bottom of the steamer (you don’t want the water touching you food), then throw in your veggies.  They steam to perfection in no time and taste delicious!!

littlegems

Sunsella Silicone Baking Cups – I am in LOVE with the Little Gems baking cups!  I have several old muffin pans that are kind of rusty, but I just can’t throw them out.  The best way to keep them going is to use these little silicone baking cups in them.  They are oven proof and easy to wash.  Just plop them in the muffin pan and fill up 1/2-2/3 full.  I love that they are rainbow colored because I love bright colors!  These are perfect for cupcakes, muffins, cornbread, or any kind of meal you want to make in muffin form!!  Go crazy and make some quiche in them!  So easy and fun!!  You can even use these on a regular cookie sheet to save space and prevent having to have a separate muffin pan!

veggieweightloss

Vegetarian Weight Loss Book – Now I am not a vegetarian, but I have been trying to eat a more whole diet which has included A LOT more veggies than I used to consume.  I like to be able to eat healthy, lose weight (although not a ton now that I am pregnant) but not feel like I am dieting.  The Vegetarian Weight Loss book is a great resource for healthy recipes and you can easily add in some chicken or turkey if you are not a vegetarian, like me!  I love to find fun meals that my kids can enjoy with me!  That’s the most important and I found several in this book!
