07/01/2020

With Christmas now a distant memory and many of us feeling like we’ve overindulged during the festive period, now is the perfect time to start a healthier regime. Whether you are taking part in the every growing popularity of ‘Veganuary’ or want to focus on adding more fruit, vegetables and nutritional value to your diet, Smeg has a range of products on offer to help start your health kick.

BLENDER & BOTTLE TO GO ACCESSORY
If your keen on making healthy smoothies or soups, then the BLF01 blender will make light work of frozen fruits, ice and nuts using its powerful 800W motor. The 1.5 litre Tritan BPA-free jug offers plenty of capacity whilst the 18,000 max RPM ensures maximum blending performance, time after time. The soft start ensures speed is built gradually and preset programs to crush ice and smoothies make using this small but mighty appliance quick and easy to use.
The BGF01 ‘bottle to go’ accessory is the perfect addition to the BLF01 Blender. Quick and easy to use, you can prepare a smoothie or drink in no time, ready to take to the gym or office.

CITRUS JUICER
Citrus fruits are a great source of concentrated energy to help deal with stress, fatigue and seasonal changes. Drinking freshly squeezed juice is a real pick-me-up thanks to its abundant supply of vitamins which activate our immune defenses. Specially developed to squeeze both large and small fruit and dispense every last drop of juice directly into a glass or cup, the compact CJF01 citrus juicer provides delicious, fresh, homemade juice with ease.



SLOW JUICER

The Smeg slow juicer has been meticulously crafted to produce the finest cold-pressed juices and encourages people to enjoy a fresh and healthy lifestyle. It has been specially developed to squeeze the optimal amount of goodness from fresh fruit or vegetables, with no need to remove nutrient rich skin. The Slow Squeezing Technology ™ (SST) gently compresses ingredients without bruising them to preserve taste and nutrition, while a juice density regulation lever allows you to tailor juice thickness to just the way you like this. Whether its beetroot juice or apple juice you’re craving, this easy-to-use and easy-to-clean appliance will fill your glass in no time.

BLAST CHILLERS
Traditionally found in professional kitchens or on TV cookery shows like MasterChef, domestic blast chillers work in conjunction with vacuum drawers, to produce healthier, high quality food. Blast chillers will quickly freeze, cool and even heat your food! They encourage better time management, reduce food wastage and allow you to store and consume the best seasonal food. Rapid freezing allows you to eat fresh and tasty fruit and vegetables the whole year round, even when they are not in season, perfect for the kids!

VACUUM DRAWERS
Vacuum drawers seal ingredients into airtight bags or containers for a longer storage life. In this sealed environment, nutrients and aromas are preserved perfectly and food tastes as good as if it was made from fresh ingredients.

STEAM OVENS
All steam ovens allow a natural and healthy way to preserve vitamins and nutrients in food such as fish, and vegetables and Smeg offer three different steam technologies, Steam assist, Full steam, and Direct steam for maximum choice. When using a full steam oven, sous vide cooking can take place if sealed first in a smeg VBAG and 100% steam is selected. This process allows you to retain the aromas, juices, nutrients of the ingredients, consistency and flavour that is impossible to achieve through traditional cooking methods.

We hope this guide has provided lots of ‘food for thought’.
