Times have been hectic. I get up early, workout early, run around like a chicken waking up the family to get them dressed, fed and out of the house by 7:45 am daily. As you can imagine sometimes I forget to eat. Can you believe that? After a 3+ mile run or major weight lifting session with my trainer – I forget to eat.
I need HELP!!! What I need is a personal chef who knows me and what I like to eat and when but since I can’t afford one of those I guess the new Countertop by the Orange Chef will just have to do. Let me explain though – I’m not settling, oh no. From everything I read, this new kitchen gadget is the wave of the future and the next best thing as having a personal chef.
Let me share with you how my new personal chef Countertop works. It’s a countertop that has connections to attach your Vitamix blender or Crock-Pot® slow cooker as you prepare your breakfast, snack, lunch or dinner. Over time, it learns your eating habits, patterns and preferences which is what I need in my life. Oh did I forget to mention it also connects to your activity tracker? Cool right?
How does it learn all of that? It syncs with your activity tracker to capture your activity level, sleep patterns, fitness and nutritional goals and learns your personal taste preferences as you prepare your food with it.
I own a Vitamix and LOVE IT btw. So I plan to use this Countertop with that. There is a connector that attaches to the base of the Vitamix blender and the Countertop will instantly recognize it and start suggesting recipes for the time of day considering my needs. While it won’t prepare the food for me like a human personal chef, it does have a big catalog of healthy recipes I will be able to use that walk me through them step-by-step. That is exciting because I am fresh out of ideas for healthy foods to prepare for myself and my family.
I also have a slight problem tracking my meals on a consistent basis. With the Countertop I won’t have to worry about it because as I prepare my food it captures the exact measurement of the recipe so I know the exact macros, nutrients and calories being consumed per serving. AWESOME!!
