Still have a little more holiday shopping to do? Whether you’re shopping for friends, family, or want a little something for yourself, our Village Clubs registered dietitian, Jamie Miller, has some fun gift ideas to help build a healthy kitchen. Check out these gifts that keep food choices healthy, but also delicious, fun, and convenient!
Staying hydrated is vital for total health, and drinking enough water can be so much easier when it’s deliciously infused. With this pitcher, you simply add fruit, citrus, sliced cucumber, mint, etc. to the center insert for easy infusing. This is a great idea for anyone with a health goal to drink more water or decrease their intake of sweetened beverages.
This oil sprayer is helpful to control how much cooking oil you use. Each trigger provides ¼ tsp of oil in a fan pattern to evenly coat food. It’s non-aerosol, meaning it is free of harmful propellants or chemicals, and its nozzle design does not clog like many other spray products which often do.
This handheld spiralizer makes it easy to incorporate more vegetables into mealtimes. Try it out with zucchini, carrots, sweet potatoes, cucumbers, and more. It’s dishwasher safe, quick to use, and even gives two options of shapes – either julienne spirals or fettuccine-shaped pieces.
Help your loved ones have healthy food at their fingertips with a gift card to Daily Harvest. This subscription service delivers nourishing, pre-portioned smoothie cups, bowls, flatbreads, and more to your doorstep. There’s an option to purchase either a Custom Gift Box of nine food choices or a Gift Card for recipients to choose their favorites.
Meal prep can help you save time and money, while also supporting healthy choices on the go. These glass food storage containers are durable and also are safe to heat in the microwave or oven. This could be a wonderful gift for loved ones who take their lunch to work.
Avocados are full of heart healthy monounsaturated fats, fiber, potassium, and more. But ¼ to ½ of an avocado is a perfect portion. So keep the rest of these nutritional powerhouses fresh with an Avocado Hugger cover. They are dishwasher safe, easy to clean, and BPA and phthalate free.
Keep salads healthy by making your own tasty dressings, and this dressing shaker will make it easy to do. Its markers allow for quick measuring, and leak proof design means worry free shaking, with flip top opening providing easy one-handed pouring.
A perfect gift for meat and seafood lovers, Butcher Box provides high quality and responsibly sourced proteins for nourished bodies and a cared for planet. Their products include 100% grass-fed beef, free-range organic chicken, heritage-breed pork, and wild-caught seafood.
These bear claws aren’t only for shredding barbequed meat. They also can be used to lift hot and heavy foods like a pork tenderloin or roast, hold meats in place while you slice, or toss a salad! They are a “do all” in the kitchen while keeping hands protected and clean.
Chopped salads seem to taste so much better than a bowl of big lettuce leaves, but all that dicing can be quite time consuming. Enter this salad chopper! Simply place a variety of veggies, fruit, cheese, nuts, olives, meats, etc., in the specially designed bowl and use the handheld chopper blade to cut all your delicious ingredients. Salads will be a mealtime favorite with this fun kitchen tool.
Make blending quick and easy with a handheld immersion blender. You can puree soups right in a pot, blend up smoothie ingredients in a cup, or quickly whisk whipped cream in a bowl. Compact and efficient, an immersion blender may be a new favorite kitchen gadget.
Tired of over-cooked, dry chicken? Or worried about undercooking your fish? Take the guesswork out of cooking with a digital cooking thermometer and timer. This could be a wonderful idea for a less experienced cook to help them feel more comfortable in the kitchen.
Quality seafood is such an awesome source of omega 3 fatty acids, protein, and more. But fresh seafood can be difficult to find in many parts of the country. SizzleFish delivers the very best seafood right to you or your loved ones doorstep. From fresh seafood portions, to smoked fish, crab cakes, and more, there’s so much to try. GIft options include either a gift card, sample packs, or individual orders.
Enjoy this holiday season and gift giving time with these great ideas. Share your faves with us on social.
