Remember, everyone loves something gourmet to nibble on, even your pet! Here is the Lakeside Selection: Our Choice of Favorite Items of the Week.

Lakeside Selection: Our Favorite Items This Week

New year, new you, right? Since one of the most common resolutions each year is to eat better and get healthy, this week’s focus is on our favorite kitchen items for your home. It’s a lot easier to have a healthy diet when you’ve got high-quality and convenient kitchen items, so check these out today and get yourself on the right track for 2014!

Divided Food Storage Containers

Divided Containers

There’s no better way to pack carrots and hummus or grapes and crackers than with these easy divided food containers. They’ll keep your crunchy foods from getting soggy, no matter what you put in the other side. We especially love these containers for Greek yogurt and homemade granola.

They’re the perfect size for a healthy breakfast or light snack at work, and they’re really great for road trips with the kids. You can also divide afternoon snacks for the kids, so they’re all prepared when they get home from school.

Dip Bowl Hangers

Dip Bowl Hangers

Do you like dips and appetizers? Planning a party for the Super Bowl this year? We love these dip bowl hangers for serving sauces and dips alongside the chips and vegetables. For healthy options, try baked pita chips with homemade spinach artichoke dip, roasted garlic hummus with carrots, or organic corn chips with salsa and guacamole.

This is a great way to save space on a crowded appetizer table, or a way to serve ketchup with your kids’ burgers and fries without making a mess everywhere. Try serving toppings to oatmeal, like nuts and dried fruits in this bowl as well. You really can’t go wrong, and clean up is so easy!

Plastic Travel Tumblers

Plastic Straw Travel Tumblers

Summer is right around the corner, so it’s okay to start thinking about smoothies and iced coffee, which is why we’re in love with these plastic travel tumblers with straws. If you’re looking to get your 2014 off to a bright and healthy start, try your hand at easy green smoothies and drink them on your way to work with these great travel tumblers.

The straw makes it super easy to drink on the go, and even if you just drink water from the tumbler, think about how much money (& plastic) you’re saving. It’s a win-win for your wallet and the environment.

Silicone Instant Spouts

Instant Spouts

It seems like every time we make pancakes and waffles, or try to fill a muffin tin, we end up with a hundred dirty spoons and drops of batter across the countertop. These silicone instant spouts make it very easy to pour batter exactly where it belongs. You can wipe the drips away with a small spoon or spatula, and you won’t have to worry about a mess all over your kitchen counter.

It’s a clever tool that works for just about any bowl or container. You can use it for muffins and pancakes, as well as for pouring soups and hot chocolate. And you know what the best part is? You can rest your spoon or whisk on the spout instead of on a utensil holder on the stove.
