Gift Guide For Health Nuts
New & Unique Food Items
A gift basket filled with some new, unique and healthy food items is sure to please. Add a fun water bottle or coffee mug, some kitchen towels (or gym towel) and you’ve got a great gift.
Snickerdoodle! Red Velvet! Cookie Batter! Sounds amazing, but likely not healthy, right? Wrong! Buff Bake makes very healthy and very tasty, low sugar almond butter in tantalizing flavors. Yes please.
- Grass-fed Protein Powder
Why? Pasture-raised beef and it’s milk has a more desirable saturated fatty acid lipid profile and is higher in omega-3s, resulting in a healthier ratio of omega-6:omega-3. (1) (2) This protein powder is a staple in my kitchen; it’s one of the few items I subscribe to. After sampling many plant-based powders and other diary-based powders, I finally found our favorite. It’s minimal ingredient list is a major plus. It is slightly sweet with a natural vanilla flavor. Plus, it doesn’t foam after throwing it into the blender.
- Boku Superfood
Boku has NO added vitamins or minerals, which I love. It’s nutrient dense, real food, dehydrated and ground into a powder. It has real antioxidants, real cancer-fighters, real deep colors, real components from real food that have real health benefits. Plus, they can make my favorite Almond Boku Superfood Bites recipe!
- Raw Honey
Why? “Raw honey possesses nootropic effects, such as memory-enhancing effects, as well as neuropharmacological activities, such as anxiolytic, antinociceptive, anticonvulsant, and antidepressant activities.” Whaaaat? In layman’s terms, it is a food that actually has therapeutic benefits that act at a molecular level (it’s like a medicine) that can act as a very strong antioxidant combating a ton of chronic diseases.
Most health nuts are a nut about making their own food. After all, you can control exactly what is in the food you eat. So a kitchen gadget is always a fool-proof gift.
- Spiralizer Vegetable Spiral Slicer
If low-carb is their thing, this lil’ gadget is a necessity! Carb lovers alike absolutely love this easy-to-use gadget. Beautiful ribbons of vegetables are created, resulting in amazing and healthy side and main dishes.
- Glass Water Bottle
Find alternatives to plastic in any way possible. In my opinion, plastic is one of the worst things on this planet. This awful substance poses severe negative environmental and human health effects. The scary thing is that there is no getting away from it! If you dare, read more here. A glass water bottle, what’s a better gift?
- Tofu Press
Vegetarians in the house? Love tofu? The only way to make amazing tofu is to brown it. And the only way to brown tofu well is to leech all the liquid out. Voila! Tofu press.
Who doesn’t love an awesome home gadget. Nuff said.
- Wood Grain Essential Oil Diffuser
Trendy? Yes. Worth trying? Heck yes! Let me tell you why I love essential oils and their diffusers. If you haven’t heard, “fragrance” that isn’t natural, is harmful. The only way to safely perfume your home is to use essential oils. Read more here. Secondly, the diffusers act as a humidifier. So, it’s a necessity to have one when you or a family member is ill. But most importantly, the humidifier I have running nightly aside my bed is the only thing that has cured my chronically dry hands. Currently, I have a diffuser in each bedroom and one for the downstairs.
