Kitchen Essentials

Where are my coffee lovers out there? I will not lie to you, this is my single most favorite thing I have in my kitchen! You can have my kitchen aid, you can have my gas stovetop… don’t touch my coffee maker! 

This Ninja Coffee Bar Auto-iQ Programmable Coffee Maker allows you to make 6 different brew sizes, 5 brew options and even comes with a milk frother. I can make a single cup of coffee or a whole carafe if I have company. I also love it’s two options for travel mug sizes if I need a cup of joe to go!

With trending diets such as Whole30, Paleo and Keto, boiled eggs are a go-to high protein solution. However, may people tend to fall off the wagon due to how much time it takes to meal prep.

Avocados are a great source of vitamins C, E, K, and B-6, as well as riboflavin, niacin,folate, pantothenic acid, magnesiumpotassium and omega-3 fatty acids. I just can’t get enough of those little green guys! I’m always making guac and this gadget changes the game completely.
