I’m finding it a little difficult to get out of my Summer routine. My kids Back2School and our weeknight schedule is filling up fast! One thing that I do not compromise on is serving my family healthy meals that we eat together at the dining room table. Sometimes this is much easier said than done!
One product that has helped me accomplish healthy meals on busy school night is the new ActiFry from T-fal.
I received product to facilitate this post.
NEW T-fal ActiFry
The new T-Fal ActiFry is a revolutionary kitchen appliance that makes it quick and easy to prepare family favorites healthier, with less fat! I’ve been using this product all week for dinner, snacks, and even desserts. I’m addicted!
The ActiFry uses hot air circulation technology with heat pulsing action in an non-stick removable aluminum pan to cook and ‘fry’ foods of all kinds. The interface is simple, turn it on or off with one button and the timer is another button!
I’ve tried many types of kitchen appliances but nothing is quite like this. There is a paddle that continuously stirs the food as it cooks at a constant temperature of 338° F, allowing the food to cook evenly every time.
The ActiFry comes with a great collection of heart-healthy meals, snacks, and desserts to get you started. I tried a few this week and they have all been a hit.
I’ve never deep fried french fries before, I just can’t imagine using all that oil! With ActiFry, you can make 2 lbs home made fries with just 1 spoonful of oil or no oil if you use store-bought fries! Amazing, right?!
I made homemade sweet potato fries as a healthy and fun after-school snack today and they were a huge hit!
ActiFry is not just for fries! You can make your entire dinner with ActiFry. I tried the Chicken and Corn recipe from the ActiFry cookbook for dinner. It was an easy recipe! First, I sauteed the onions in a little oil, then I added the chicken and potatoes, and then finally the chicken broth, corn, and seasonings.
I like how ActiFry stirs and cooks the raw ingredients into a perfectly cooked dinner for your family in one pot. Everyone enjoyed this unique chicken recipe, the cumin in it added great flavor!
It’s apple season in Ohio, so why not enjoy a delicious homemade dessert of Glazed Apple Wedges?! It calls for only a few simple ingredients and it’s ready in less than 20 minutes.
Glazed Apple Wedges is perfect as a side dish with dinner, over frozen yogurt or ice cream too.
Plus, it is all dishwasher safe so clean up is EASY! I can’t believe how much time the ActiFry has saved me on busy weeknights, everything cooks in one pan, then it all gets thrown in the dishwasher for the next day. Easy peasy.
You can purchase the T-fal ActiFry for just $199.99 at Bed, Bath, and Beyond and on Amazon.com.
