As another new year starts to ramp up, many of us are starting to embark on individual health and wellness journeys after a food filled festive period.

So, homeware experts VonHaus have compiled a list of the must-have kitchen tools that will help achieve your 2023 health goals and reset your body if your new years resolution is to live healthier.

  1. Ditch the alcohol for fresh smoothies and juices

With Dry January already started, there’s never been a better time to put down the glasses of Prosecco and get blending in the kitchen!

According to the search listening tool,, searches for ‘smoothie makers’ have increased by 22% in the last month, and it’s estimated to increase further throughout January as people begin their new year’s resolutions.

Get ahead of the demand with VonShef’s Ultrablend Smoothie Maker and blitz your favourite fruit and vegetables with either milk or fruit juice to create a quick, on-the-go nutritious breakfast or mid-afternoon snack.

Be sure to avoid pre-prepared juices as they are normally loaded with nasty preservatives and added sugar. Instead, opt for making fresh juice at home made possible by the 800W motor power of the Stainless Steel Juicer from VonShef.

  1. Stop food waste with new appliances 

As many of us get back into our busy schedules, it’s all too easy to forget about the packet of carrots at the bottom of the fridge.

Avoid excessive food waste whilst bettering your health by investing in a good quality food processor like this model from VonShef. This must-have kitchen tool is hassle-free and ensures no food item gets wasted thanks to its multi-functional processor, meaning you can chop, shred, slice and grate in seconds.

Why not use it to turn your unwanted vegetables or boiled potatoes into healthy bubble and squeak cakes that can be fried in coconut oil and served with fresh salad leaves for the perfectly balanced meal.

Or, use the powerful 1000W Glass Jug Blender to batch cook homemade pasta sauces and soups seasoned with fresh herbs and spices, ready to freeze for a nutritious ready meal alternative for those nights when you can’t be bothered to cook.

  1. Opt for healthier dessert alternatives
Greek Yoghurt Maker

We’re all guilty of enjoying a plethora of decadent desserts, but studies have shown that consuming too much sugar can lead to acne, weight gain and even tiredness.[1][2]

Ditch the artificially sweetened supermarket treats for fresh fruit, yoghurt and granola bowls – a perfectly balanced probiotic snack that can be enjoyed at any time of the day.

It’s best to choose Greek yoghurt as your base as it contains a significantly lower amount of sugar than regular yoghurt, whilst still having the high levels of vitamins and minerals.

Go one step further and prepare your own yoghurt with the VonShef Greek Yoghurt Maker – this handy gadget can whip up both Greek and normal yoghurt that can be consumed on its own, as a salad dressing or in main dishes such as curries.

  1. Meal prep to stay on track for 2023

Make takeaways and ready meals a thing of the past in 2023 with VonShef’s Glass Ovenproof Containers.

Made from resilient borosilicate glass, the easy to transport and clean container is ideal for storing, reheating and freezing your favourite batch cooked meals that can be enjoyed in an instant.

Instead of buying and preparing food daily, meal prepping allows you the freedom throughout the week to spend time outside of the kitchen as you have already dedicated time to plan and prepare some or all your meals ahead of time.

A simple Sunday morning spent preparing your lunches or dinners for the week ahead can make a positive impact on achieving your health goals in 2023.
