5 Must-Have Gadgets for Your Paleo / Whole30 Kitchen

Sticking to a Paleo diet takes discipline, planning and a good system to make meal preparation and planning as easy as possible.

An essential part of my system is a set of tools that speed up otherwise time-consuming tasks. Here are my favorites:

OXO Good Grips Handheld Spiralizer ($14.99 at Amazon)

I use my Spiralizer to make zucchini noodles as a pasta substitute, create salads/slaws, and sweet potato hash browns. There are hundreds of great Spiralizer recipes. ($14.99 at Amazon)

Insta-Pot Slow Cooker/Pressure Cooker ($99 at Amazon)

No paleo kitchen would be complete without a slow cooker, and the Insta-Pot is so much more. To really get efficient, you’ll want to be able to cook large batches of food and eat them over multiple days. ($99 at Amazon)

Glass Food Storage Containers ($16+ at Amazon)

If you’re cooking in large batches, you want to divide your food into portion-sized batches before storing. That makes reheating and serving a snap.

I strongly prefer glass to plastic for a number of reasons:

  1. Safety — No BPA/Phthalates to worry about
  2. Easy to clean
  3. I prefer eating out of a glass container

Get yourself a good set that fits your family size (if you’re cooking/storing for one, you’ll need different sized containers than if you’re storing meals for a family). Browse the best selling glass storage containers here.

Kolder Salad Dressing Bottle ($7 at Amazon)

Citrus Squeezer / Juicer ($22 at Amazon)

Many Paleo / Whole30 recipes are going to call for lemon or lime juice to season your dish. Without a tool, you’re going to waste a lot of pricey limes. Trust me, you’ll get twice as much juice out of your fruit using one of these handy tools. ($22 at Amazon)
