Vegetables and fruits are an important part of everyone’s diet. For years, experts have been recommending 5 servings of fruits and vegetables per day.
Most of you know that we get loads of vitamins and minerals and other important nutrients from our fruits and vegetables and we have all heard about the 5 servings a day, but honestly now, what is your intake like. Do you think you are eating enough vegetables each day? What about your serving of fruits?
It is not even 5 servings anymore. The Center for Disease Control has recommended increasing the daily requirements of fruits and vegetables to maintain good health. Just 5 servings is not enough anymore. 5 servings is actually the minimum that you should eat.
If you are like me, you are probable eating enough fruits. After all it is easy to grab a fruit and start munching. But what about the vegetables?
A nice salad along with your meal looks pretty good, doesn’t it? So why aren’t you having those lovely salads?
I must admit that I am a bit lazy at times. The meal might be ready and all that is needed is to prepare a nice salad to go with it, but when I think of cutting up all that lettuce, tomato, pepper, cabbage, carrot , onions………whatever, the laziness kicks in and I end up skipping the salad.
Does that ever happen to you? Can’t bother to make the salad or too hungry and can’t spare the time to make it.
Well I met a kitchen gadget recently that is a life saver. What is it, you ask?
It is a……..
It comes in two parts; the bowl and the base (cutting board).
Each product is made using high quality ABS plastic. Safe, durable and FDA approved.
The bowl contains slots which you cut through to get to the vegetables. It also serves as a strainer for washing fruits and vegetables.
How it works
The vegetables for the salad is placed in the bowl; (carrot, cucumber, tomato, lettuce, cabbage….whatever vegetables you desire)
Rinse the veggies under the pipe. (Some persons prefer to use pre-washed vegetables as it can be a little bit wet and soggy if you try to cut the “just washed” vegetables.)
Place the base over the bowl and then invert.
Take a sharp knife and slice through the slots in the bowl.
Turn the bowl (not the base or the food inside) 90 degrees and slice through again.
You will end up with sliced and ready to eat salad.
It’s that simple and that quick.
Do the same with your fruits to make lovely fruit salads.
If you want your salad to be sliced finer, you can rotate the bowl another 90 degrees and slice through again. If you want larger chunks of fruits or vegetables, you can skip some of the slots in the bowl.
Do not overfill the bowl.

- Plastic that makes up the Cutter Bowl does not appear durable as score lines can be seen on the base after the first use.
