Stabil Stainless Steel Steamer Insert $7.99 from Ikea

Just add some water to the bottom of a pot and sit the handy stainless steel steamer insert inside. Throw in your vegetables (the less tender ones first) and put on the lid!

This nifty bottle will help reduce your calorie and fat intake while adding a beautiful flavour to your meals. No need for artificial aerosol gases here! Just pour in your favourite oil, screw on the top and spray!

SodaStream Sparkling Water Maker $98 from Big W
While it won’t help you eat healthier, it can significantly reduce the amount of sugar you consume. SodaStreams are a great investment for those who love fizzy drinks and don’t consume enough water. The SodaStream works by releasing carbon dioxide gas that is stored in the pressure cylinder into water, creating a carbonated beverage. While you can buy some flavoured syrups made with low or no sugar, adding a squeeze of lemon juice is the perfect way to add some flavour to your sparkling water and will satisfy any soft drink craving.
