It’s the start of a brand-new year, and more people are hoping to live a healthier lifestyle in 2023. A YouGov poll conducted in December 2022 reveals that 20 percent of Americans want to improve their physical health. Moreover, 23 percent of women and 13 percent of men resolve to eat healthier this year. Making smart food choices and opting for fresh produce instead of overly processed foods can tremendously improve one’s health. But if you’re looking to be more proactive to stay healthy and well, adding these tech gadgets into your kitchen can help you stay on top of your health goals.
Devices to Ward Off House Pests
Eating healthfully should always be a priority, and so should keeping food and meal prep spaces clean and hygienic. Too many people get sick from food contamination brought about by poor hygiene and common house pests, such as cockroaches and rodents. According to the Environmental Protection Agency, cockroaches carry bacteria and germs that can cause streptococcus and salmonella if deposited on food. Moreover, research shows that you can also get diseases such as typhoid fever, dysentery, or cholera if you ingest food contaminated by pests.
To keep your kitchen clean and free of pests, you can keep foods that house pests love, such as honey, peanut butter, and bread, in airtight containers. You can also invest in tech devices that can keep pests out of your kitchen, such as an ultrasonic pest repeller which uses electromagnetic wave technology to ward off bugs. Meanwhile, a smart insect trap can be used to lure flies, mosquitoes, and gnats so you and your family won’t be bothered by these pests while you’re cooking or eating in the kitchen.
Gadgets That Keep Track of Calories
Keeping track of your calorie intake can be a challenge, especially if you’re not used to doing so in the first place. Fortunately, some kitchen gadgets can help you with this task so you can successfully lose or gain weight, depending on your fitness goals. At CES 2023, tech fans got a glimpse of one of these devices, called the VersaWare Smart Kitchen Cutting Board. Powered by AI, it provides real-time nutrition breakdowns, so you know how many calories are in your food, as well as the amount of vitamins and minerals in it. It also records your consumption data and dietary preferences so it can make personalized recipe recommendations. Other devices that can keep track of food calories include smart food scales such as ones from Arboleaf, FITINDEX, Etekcity, and URAMAZ.
A Smart Oven That Cooks Healthier Meals in A Flash
Making home-cooked meals is one way to ensure that you’re eating healthy fare. However, one of the reasons why people don’t cook is because it’s time-consuming. This is why kitchen gadget manufacturers are releasing appliances that not only cook faster but can also be used to cook in different ways. Smart countertop ovens such as the Ninja Foodie 10-in-1 Pro Air Fry Oven and June Oven allow you to roast, bake, grill, air fry, broil, toast, and reheat, slow cook, or make pizza in a short amount of time. An app helps you keep track of what you’re cooking with live video, and you even get smart alerts, so you’ll know when the food is done.
The right gadgets can improve your well-being. Consider adding these tech devices into your kitchen to stay well and healthy in 2023.
