If someone was to ask you what you wanted to eat you could probably name a hundred different things. Some that you would never make at home? Why do you think that is? It’s a pretty good question and I don’t know the answer. It happens all the time and you’re not the only one that does it. There’s literally thousands of things we could make, yet choose to stick to the same things over and over again. It doesn’t have to be that way.

Think about what you had the last few times you went out somewhere for a bite to eat. The reason you probably don’t make any of those things at home is because you don’t have the gadgets to make them properly. You eat all the same food just because you don’t go out and grab yourself the tool to make it. Well it can end today. You now realize what’s happening and you can change it starting from now. Let’s have a look at some gadgets you could add to your collection.

A popcorn maker

Paragon Popcorn Machine

We all love popcorn and whenever we go to the cinema it turns into a popcorn feast. But you probably watch movies at home. Why do you not have a popcorn maker yet? It’s so easy to use and you can make yourself a lovely treat whenever you sit down to watch movies. It’s crazy how everyone loves popcorn, it’s so easy to make and yet we don’t take advantage of it when we’re in our own home. The sad part is they’re not even expensive.

A rice cooker

tada!

When was the last time you had an Indian or Chinese meal? The amount of restaurants are unreal and the only reason there’s so much of them is because we love the taste. And people don’t bother to cook rice half the time because it’s awkward to make in a pot. When you have a rice cooker you don’t even need to do anything. Just pop the rice in and add some water, then you wait 20 minutes and it’s ready.

A smoothie maker

Smoothies maker

Nothing is more healthy than a nice smoothie. When you get one from a juice bar they usually cost an arm and a leg. If you have one at home you could make one every morning for breakfast. Just take some fruit and throw it in. There’s hundreds of recipes on the Internet. You know they taste absolutely amazing, yet probably just stick to the same cereal every morning. They are seriously worth it if you even plan on improving your diet.

Your own bread maker

Gonna Rise Up!

Bread you buy from the supermarket is pretty poor if you compare it to home baked bread. It’s not the 1800’s so you don’t have to bake it from scratch. All you need to do is buy the ingredients and throw them inside the machine. It takes care of the rest. And the smell that fills your house is unreal. You’ll want to bake some every day.
