The Kitchen Safe Allows You to Transition to a Raw Food Diet Effortlessly

Changing your diet takes willpower and as you transition to eating more raw, plant-based foods, you’ll find an invention like the Kitchen Safe invaluable.  A plastic container complete with a tamper-proof lock with timer built into it, the clever storage item was part of a successfully Kickstarter campaign that generated $41,991 from 779 backers in a 45 days.

The Kitchen Safe is the brainchild of David Krippendorf, Ryan Tseng, and Nick Tseng.  Krippendorf battled junk food cravings that were so severe that he needed to invent a solution to curb them.  He called upon his former MIT grad school classmate, Ryan, for assistance.  As the company grew, Tseng brought on his brother, Nick, for additional support.  The result was a wildly successful invention that can be used to avoid temptation while making lifestyle changes.

Rather than take a chance with a bag of cookies while switching to a healthier, plant-based raw food diet, you can avoid temptation by locking the snack item away for an indefinite amount of time and see if your cravings subside.  Once the lid is closed and the timer is set, the Kitchen Safe cannot be opened until the digital read out reaches zero.  Even if the batteries die, the original time set will continue to count down once the AAs have been replaced. This keeps you from binging on the foods you’re trying to steer yourself away from.

Two Styles to Choose From

The new invention comes in two styles to choose from-clear or white (for hiding items and building anticipation).  It measures 6” wide x 6” long x 6.5” tall and can hold 3.5 quarts worth of contents.  The Kitchen Safe is BPA-free making it a safe place to store food.  The timer can be set from one minute to ten days depending on needs.  It runs on two AA batteries which will last up to 6 months under normal use.

Cleaning the Kitchen Safe is Easy and Hardly Any Work at All

The Kitchen Safe is easy to clean by hand.  Just remove the lid and wash the container with mild detergent and warm, soapy water.  Refrain from putting it in the dishwasher.  It also is not freezer-safe so keep it out of there.

An Invention That Keeps You Honest

As you’re doing your best to phase out dairy and cooked foods, you’ll appreciate an invention like the Kitchen Safe for keeping you honest.  If eating healthy is your goal, you stand a better chance of succeeding when you have a cool gadget to use.

Rather than reach for high calories sweets, you’ll satisfy your cravings with something natural like Sun Gems Sunflower Crips or Living Granola.  You’ll learn how to prepare your own raw foods like Live Babaganoush and Smooth Coco Pudding.

Inventors like Krippendorf, Tseng, and Tseng identified a need and fulfilled.  Their success is a testimony to the effectiveness of a new wave of interactive health and fitness products flooding the marketplace.  In addition to raising the funds needed to fulfill orders and launch their invention, they exceeded that number because people valued the idea behind the unique storage container that they created.

The Kitchen Safe is available for purchase through the company’s website.  It retails for $39.95.  International shipping is available making the invention the perfect gift for people around the world.  The company anticipates shipping orders soon.

What is a Raw Vegan Diet and Why Would It Benefit Me?

What exactly is a raw vegan diet and why should I consider adopting one?  There are a number of advantages to eating an uncooked, plant-based diet.  Let’s take a look at a few:

  1. Less disease and health concerns.
  2. A large variety of nutrient rich, low calorie foods to choose from.
  3. Easier to digest and absorb nutrients and enzymes.
  4. Inexpensive because you can grow fruit, vegetables, herbs, and nuts yourself.
  5. Detoxifies system.
  6. Helps you lose weight and maintain a healthy weight.

A raw vegan diet consists of raw fruits and vegetables, nuts and nut pastes or butters, seeds, sprouted grain and legumes, plant oils, herbs, and fresh juices.  Organic is always the best.  After a very short time, old cravings will subside and you’ll start to notice a difference in the type of food that you gravitate to.  Instead of sugar-laden, nutrient dense food, you’ll want something soul-satisfying and rich in vitamins and nutrients.

With so much encouragement to eat raw, how could you not try at least one new recipe?  Not only will you look better, you’ll feel fantastic.  Without a diet of sugar and processed foods, you’ll live up to your fullest potential.  You’ll experience higher energy levels which will allow you to concentrate at the task at hand.  You’ll also lessen your risk factors for heart disease, hypertension, and Type 2 Diabetes.

It’s a win-win for you.  You’ll get to sample a whole new menu’s worth of food that you’ve never tried and improve your health at the same time.  Who doesn’t want to maintain their ideal weight, get creative in the kitchen, and live a long, healthy life?
