Healthy Gift Ideas

It’s that time of year again-- ‘Tis the giving season! And what better gift is there than the gift of better health? If you have friends or family who are trying to live a healthier lifestyle, or if you’re just trying to nudge someone in a healthier direction, here are some gift ideas that can help!

Vitamix. A Vitamix is one of the best blenders on the market. It can chop, cream, blend, cook, and grind and will make your kitchen endeavors easier whether you’re making smoothies, frozen desserts, hot soups, or purees. Vitamix has three different series, but choose the one that fits your needs!

Instant Pot Pressure Cooker. Everyone seems to be on-the-go these days, which leaves little time for cooking healthy recipes. But there’s a way around that-- just throw all of your ingredients in one pot and go on with your day! Of course, you could always go with a crock pot. But this pressure cooker is a 7-in-1, multi-functional cooker--it’s a pressure cooker, slow cooker, rice cooker, and yogurt maker that also allowed you to saute, brown, steam, and warm. You can’t get much better than that!

Dessert Bullet. Want to make a healthy version of ice cream by using frozen fruits? This tool makes it quick and easy for you to indulge your sweet tooth without the guilt.

Nutribullet. Drinking green smoothies in the morning is a great way to start to your day on a healthy note. And with the Nutribullet, it has never been easier to whip up a personal-sized serving of your favorite smoothies.

AeroGarden. Do you have a family member or friend who enjoys gardening? This time of year isn’t the best for those of us with a green thumb. But the AeroGarden is a fun and easy way to grow herbs and vegetables indoors!

Cookbook. It’s always nice to have a cookbook filled with delicious, healthy recipes. Try The Super Antioxidant Diet and Nutrition Guidebook, written by our nutrition coach and chef Robin Jeep!

Living Greens. Do you know someone who would like to have fresh greens delivered to their doorstep all year round? Power Greens Club will deliver fresh, non-­GMO, pesticide and herbicide free greens within 24 hours.

Fitbit. Because it’s never a bad idea to be more active. Help your loved ones start the new year off right by encouraging them to incorporate more exercise into their lives. With a fitbit, they’ll be able to track steps, distance, heart rate, calories burned, active minutes, and sleep quality!
