I’ve receive a lot of questions about my grinding of flax seeds (and other items).  I just use an inexpensive coffee grinder. 🙂

I thought I’d share my top 3 inexpensive kitchen tools. These 3 save me time and were completely affordable.

These grinders are great for grinding small quantities of flax seeds, oats, nuts, even chocolate chips. They save time AND money as it is more economical to purchase seeds and nuts in a ‘whole’ state and then grind at home

I actually have two that I bought at least 10 years ago and they are still going strong.  At less than 15 dollars, this is an easy addition to the kitchen.this is nearly identical to the one I have.

Proctor Silex E160BY Fresh Grind Coffee Grinder, White

I like that it’s small and so easy to clean. I use a brush to wipe it out after use and then store. On occasion I give it a quick rinse in clear water.  You can certainly buy more expensive ones and ones with a larger capacity but I find the small one to suit my needs very well.

 

Another item I use A LOT is a spiralizer.


At 22 and change.00 it’s a little more than the grinder, but the ease of use and what it DOES makes it a game changer for me. This great little gadget slices in long thin ‘noodles’ most soft veggies. I use it primarily with green and yellow squash and carrots.

 

Another tool I can’t recommend enough?

My titan peelers. Seriously, the BEST peeler I have ever owned.

The plain one is sharp (I mean REALLY sharp) and the second one – it juliennes.

I use that one a lot for carrots and zucchini on wraps like this

YUM ! Right?

You don’t need to spend a ton of money for quality tools. You CAN make healthy beautiful food at home on a budget!
