KD Finds: Ways to Keep Your New Year's Resolutions

Need help sticking to your new year's resolutions? We found five picks that will help you eat healthy, lose weight and stay on track.

1. Get organized in the kitchen.

Keep pantry staples organized with these functional food containers. With a push of a button, the lid creates an air-tight seal that keeps food fresh. This 10-piece set has an assortment of sizes that fit foods like a five pound bag of flour, a box of dried lasagna noodles and small candies.

2. Eat healthy.

Not only do we love the bold color and design of this steamer, but having this tool handy makes steaming your favorite vegetables a cinch.

3. Reduce food waste.

Ethylene gas, naturally produced from fruits and vegetables, can accelerate the ripening and spoilage of neighboring produce. These blue plastic apples contain refillable packets of natural rock zeolite with ethylene-absorbing sodium pomegranate, which when stored in your refrigerator, food bin or fruit bowl can help extend the life of your produce.

4. Cook more often.

Chefs need essentials like a trusty chef's knife or a do-it-all blender in their own kitchens. Sometimes a small investment in quality cookware can be the motivating push you need. We love Calphalon's new Elite Nonstick line because it is resistant to scratches from metal spoons and whisks, so you can worry less and have more fun in the kitchen.

5. Lose weight.

This handy food prep center features a cutting board area, a portable food scale and an attachment for measuring out ingredients by the cupful, so you can be vigilant about recipe measurements and portion sizes.
