The 2018 Healthy Holiday Gift Guide is Here!

Healthy Holiday Gift Guide 2018

The holiday gift giving season is here 🎄

This year instead of buying your loved one another sweater or scarf, give the gift of health! Check out my Healthy Holiday Gift Guide with options for everyone on your list.

For your busy friend or family member

One week of Freshly meal delivery!  There a lot of meal delivery services to choose from, but for your ulta busy friend/family member there is nothing like healthy prepared meals delivered to your doorstep. Freshly offers healthy pre-made meals that you pop into the microwave for an easy lunch or dinner! Perfect for the busy parent, professional (CPAs love this during busy season!), or new college grad living on their own.

For the office

This holiday season don’t be the third person to send chocolates or popcorn to the office, check out these unique and healthy KIND Holiday Cubes! I have been a member of the KIND nutrition collective for a couple of years now, and I love their products. Not only are they a delicious snack, but they are also filled with healthy fats and protein to fight the afternoon slump.

For the pizza lover

Pizza doesn’t always have to be a treat meal, and these pre-made cauliflower pizza crusts by Cali’flour foods are gluten free and low carb! Top each pizza with your favorite cheese, veggies, and lean protein for an easy Friday night dinner.

For the cook

Some of my favorite healthy kitchen gadgets include: an air popper to make your own healthy snack at home, a sous vide for percise cooking, and of course an Instant Pot for quick cooking grains and one pot meals! Not sure if they have these already? Check out our Meal Planning Bundle featuring healthy recipes and a weekly meal planner.

For the one who is stressed out

Stress has been scientifically proven to promote disease and weight gain. Research has shown that meditation for even a couple minutes per day can decrease stress. The Calm App has been named Apple’s App of the Year and Editors’ Choice by Google Play. Get them a 1 year membership here, or turn it into a gift basket by adding on the Calm Sleep Mist , and Calm Work Book as well!

For the fitness lover

We all know how important stretching and foam rolling is, but few of us take the time to actually do it. Help your friend or family member feel better, prevent injury, and improve performance with this TriggerPoint Grid Foam Roller! The design is modeled to feel just like a massage therapists hands, and comes with an online video library as well.

For the subscription  box addict

Subscription boxes are great, but you tend to end up with a lot of mini-samples – not with FabFitFun! They offer 8-10 FULL SIZE samples of high end products with each box valued over $200. BONUS they also get access to FABFITFUNTV with free workouts. Give a gift subscription here.

For the person who has everything

Sometimes gifts of experiences that we would never give to ourselves are the best gifts. I love the Spa Finder Gift Card  because it allows your friend or family member to find a spa near them and treat themselves to some self care, whether it is a massage, mani/pedi, or a facial.

For a healthy 2019

Gift the gift of health this holiday season with a Blush Nutrition Gift Card. Blush Nutrition gift cards are available for any amount and can be redeemed for a la carte appointments or any nutrition coaching and meal planning package.

Wishing you a healthy and happy holiday season!

 

These Are A Few Of My Favorite Things: Red Kitchen Items

Processed with VSCO with f2 preset

Today I am excited to share with you some of my favorite kitchen items my decor theme color: RED! I chose red as my kitchen decor theme to continue a flow from our living/dining room into the kitchen a few years ago. I absolutely love how it makes our house feel warm and comforting, and this time of year it is particularly festive!

Here are some of my favorite kitchen items that double as great holiday gifts or registry items!

My Favorite Kitchen Items:

dutch oven

Le Creuset Signature Cast-Iron 3 1/2-Qt. Essential Oven

I cannot say enough about how amazing enameled cast iron is. Not only can you take dishes from cooktop to the oven, but it’s also super easy to clean. I use my red essential oven to cook soups all winter long, but also love the high sides for cooking high volume dishes like sautĂ©ed kale.

rectangle

Le Creuset Heritage Stoneware Rectangular Covered Casserole

The beauty of enameled cast iron at a great price! The term “one pan meal” get’s a whole new meaning with this covered casserole – try layering potatoes and green beans on the bottom followed by a lean meat like chicken on top. Cover, cook and viola! This casserole dish is also gorgeous enough to take it right out of the oven and to bring it to a dinner party.

pie pan

Emelie Harvey Pie Pan

I had been dying to get my hands on one of these Instagram worth pie dishes all season and finally caved! The ceramic also retains heat very well – meaning you can take it out of the oven before your guests get here and it will stay warm for hours.

Fiestaware in Scarlet

We have a full set of Fiestaware in all different colors and I love the durability it has. We have had ours for over 3 years now and there are not cut marks on the plates and they hold up super well (even if you accidentally drop one in the sink while washing it).

silcone tools

Silicone 5 Piece Tools Set

I love these red silicone tools from Williams-Sonoma. The handles are stainless steel and look sleek, while also offering comfort. You can put them in the dishwasher and they have held up very well for us!

And those are my holiday and registry picks for a red themed kitchen! Have other ideas? Message me.
