Win One of Two Tefal ActiFrys 2in1 Valued at $399.95 Each

A few months ago my Mum and Dad gave us their old deep fryer. You know the ones that fry the sweet baby cheeses out of your food, stink to high heaven and rapidly inflate your backside?

Yep one of those.

The kids and hubby loved it, because they have a deep love of fried food. I hated the damn thing because it stunk the whole house out, but I let them amuse themselves for a few nights frying the crap out of everything and then I sent it straight to the garage. (sorry Dad)

I have nothing against fried food, although my bum would totally disagree with that statement, and fried wedges with chicken salt, it is one of my favourite indulgences (apart from vodka and gin... oh OK and chocolate and gummy bears of course). But with an ever expanding butt I am trying hard to reduce, I just can't afford to eat it...

Or can I?

Last month, the gang from Tefal got in touch with me and asked me if I would be interested in trying out their Tefal ActiFry 2in1 as part of a four week healthy eating plan.

Of course I was all "Hell yes! Eat fried food and still be healthy and lose that ass? BRING IT Ooooooon!"

After Skyping with a nutritionist, the Tefal team sent me a 4 week healthy eating plan from Nutrition Australia, along with a ActiFry 2in1 machine and bam we were off!

There is practically nothing you cannot make in this baby. This awesome new product allows you to cook crispy wedges AND chicken... at the same time!

You can make entrees, main and desserts, all the while reducing the total fat content but without compromising the taste.

Take for example, fish and chips - a firm fave of my gang.... OK OK and me too. You can save 80% of the fat that you would need cooking it in the tradition deep fry way and end up with a scrummy dinner with 40% less calories.

Winner winner chicken fish dinner!

*Ahem* Moving on...

The ActiFry comes with a recipe book full of healthy meals your whole family will devour.

We had the burgers and wedges for dinner last night.  Seriously, burgers! And this is still healthy eating. It's almost laughable... but TRUE!

Basically I just chopped up the potatoes into wedges, chucked them into the bottom dish and covered them with just one teaspoon of olive oil and turned the machine on. It beeped at me when it was time to put my turkey mince patties in the top tray and 10 minutes later I was serving up burgers and wedges to 4 drooling males.

The machine has a 2kg capacity – 1.5kg bowl, 0.5kg tray, so you can easily cook a larger family sized meal with no fuss.

Even better - it is dishwasher safe.

The wins just keep on coming!

As an added bonus, for App happy chappies, there is a free My ActiFry App that you can download to your iPhone or iPad which has more than 150 ActiFry recipes including healthy and tasty recipes, developed by chefs and validated by nutritionists, as well as step by step recipes, videos and photos which will guarantee you a  delicious, perfectly cooked meal.

I am officially sold on the ActiFry 2in1. 

No bull!

In my 3 years of blogging, I have been lucky enough to try out a number of different gadgets and equipment and hands down, this is my fave so far.
