This holiday season there is no shortage of health themed gifts to give your family and friends. Whether you are trying to find something for your health conscious friend or trying to aid your family member into a healthier lifestyle you are sure to find something fitting. In today's post I am going to share some of my favorite "healthy" gift ideas.
1. Dessert BulletTM
Over the past year I posted several recipes using vegetable spaghetti made with spiral slicer such as Chicken Spinach Spaghetti Squash and Garlic Beef Vegetable Pasta. The Veggetti is a much simpler option to a spiral slicer due to its compact size and easier storage option. Hopefully the Veggetti will help to introduce even more people to the dramatically lower calorie pasta option using vegetables.
3. Food Saver Vegetable Containers
So often times people throw away the unused portion of the vegetable or herb they are cooking with. These adorable themed containers will help reduce waste and promote storage of the unused produce. The food saver containers will be one of the most economically gifts of the holiday season.
4. Chill Factor Slushy Maker
IceeTM machine. For all those Icee lovers who watch their calories the Slushy Maker is a perfect gift. All you have to do is freeze the cup overnight and then pour your favorite low calorie drink into the cup - whether it be soda or juice. After one minute of squeezing the cup you can have a slushy beverages of your choice. The cup even comes with a cute plastic top resembling an IceeTM lid.
5. LivligaTM Portion Controlled Plates
TM plates come in sets for the whole family to enjoy. Even better they have a line, KidligaTM, designed for the kiddos.
6. Herb Mill
Cutting herbs with a knife can be quite the task. Someone can simplify the process with this inexpensive herb mill. Place your favorite herb inside, then simply twist the handle for a few seconds. The blades inside the herb mill will quickly mince the herbs.
7. Herb Garden Kit
8. Rise App
9. Blue Apron Meal Delivery
Blue Apron is the perfect gift for the health conscious foodie who is not a good cook. The step by step recipe instructions are accompanied by all the fresh and lower calorie ingredients. Even the worst of the worst cooks will be able to follow the instructions provided.
10. Mason Jar Measuring Cups
I just discovered this brilliant cooking charm yesterday. I am always looking for certain measuring cups - well look no more. This adorable measuring option can sit on your kitchen counter permanently. A perfect gift for the baker or blogger friend or family member.
I am looking over this list hoping some of my family and friends will get some ideas for me. Hint hint!! So many great ideas you will be sure to find something for those family and friends that you are still trying to find the perfect gift for.
