"I'd always felt that my skin was a reflection of my health, and I considered myself a

The super-powered blender was a major investment but nothing in my kitchen gets more consistent use, year after year. I make everything from daily smoothies to nut butter to baby food to cashew 'cheesecake' in it.
8. Microplane Grater
$16.95 | microplane.com
I steep fresh ginger and turmeric root in my morning warm lemon water. This super-fine grater really streamlines the process, making it easier for me to get those anti-inflammatory benefits.
