Summertime Food without the Guilt

It’s swimsuit season, but that won’t stop any rational human being from devouring fried chicken and any other “unhealthy” summer foods or drinks. So who’s with me? Let’s take back summer and eat the foods the satisfy our soul, slurp the drinks that excite our taste buds and indulge entirely too much. Here’s the catch: you don’t have to worry about the extra calories either. We have a round up of three products that will make your summer healthier and utterly delectable.

Summertime FoodFew things in life are better than fried chicken. So why deny yourself one of life’s greatest pleasures in fried food? You can skip the deep fryer and opt for an air fryer instead. One of our favorites is the PuriFry Air Fryer from Black and Decker which uses little to no oil to create crispy snacks without the need for deep frying. In addition to fried chicken, the fryer can also handle shrimp, hamburgers, pork chops, french fries and fruit pies. If you’re feeling ambitious, it can be used simply to bake foods or reheat them as well.

The Air Fryer is powered by dual convection fans and uses a unique technology that combines heat and air circulation for fast and crisp results. Its 2L capacity can serve the whole family, while its variable temperature control allows for versatile cooking. I guess we can all have our fried chicken and eat it too. You can purchase it for $99.99 at Macy’s or Bed Bath and Beyond.

The juicer features a take-to-table detachable pitcher with a 34oz capacity, a pulp control dial, 2 reamers with nested storage for large and small citrus fruit, and a full-color recipe book with tips for running your own lemonade stand. Skip the caffeinated, sugary drinks and try juicing instead. If you have kids, it’s great capital that will teach them some early-on business skills at their own lemonade stand. This juicer can be bought at Target for only $14.29, yes you read that correctly and we’ve even linked it here.

Soda and sugary drinks tend to be the go-to summer refreshers, yet they aren’t so kind to the waistline. Have you ever thought about juicing? The Proctor-Silex Alex’s Lemonade Stand Citrus Juicer is the ultimate drink-maker that gives back in more ways than one. For each unit sold, $1 goes directly to Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation for childhood cancer research. It also gives back to your body, whether you’re juicing grapefruit, oranges, lemons or anything else, it certainly loves your body back.

Summertime FoodWho doesn’t love a good popsicle? Now that you have a fabulous new juicer (or even if you don’t), healthy home made popsicles are quick, easy, and adorable thanks to Zoku. The word ‘Zoku’ means family in Japanese and that’s exactly what this company stands for. They are dedicated to making products that result in long lasting family memories through innovation and creativity. Their popsicle-makers say it all, especially these Fish Pop molds that scream charming and functional.

They feature your favorite under-the-sea creatures including a Shark, Clownfish, Octopus, Whale, Puffer Fish and even a Zoku Scuba Diver. The sticks contain drip guards and have amusing “skeletons” that are revealed as the pops are eaten. You can create jello popsicles, juice popsicles, or anything your imagination might conjure. They are perfect for any summer get together and both adults, as well as kids, will love them. They can be purchased here for the small price of $19.99.

These three products make summertime food guilt-free and absolutely appetizing. Call your friends, start up the Air Fryer and juice some lemons for a summer party you’ll never forget!
