Healthy and Unique Gift Ideas

Top Gifting Picks for the Foodie or Natural Health Nut in Your Life -

Dr. Kristen and Madelaine’s favorites for every budget !

· gluten,Products

1. Microplane zester: $9 So easy to use - citrus zest is packed with antioxidants and a great addition to salad dressings, fish, stir-frys, and much more. Another handy gourmet gadget: Herb scissors $14 to make adding fresh herbs to your meal a cinch.

2. Spice Club Subscription $7-8/month. A great idea for that hard to buy for person who has everything. New Spices + recipes every month - customizable for gluten free, vegetarian, etc. Cancer-fighting antioxidants! Make healthy and flavor packed synonymous. For our patients only - use the promo code BCWNUTRITION for $5 off a 6 or 12 month gift or subscription.

3. Thrive Market Subscription -$5 a month ($59.95 for the year). Major discounts on many natural and organic products. Most members make back that fee within the first two orders. All new members receive a 30-day free trial that begins when the first order is placed.

4. Vitamix Juicer: Varies, approx. $300-450. But such a worthy splurge. The ultimate workhorse machine for juicing, blending, and many other whole foods prepping tasks.

5. Essential Oil Cool Mist Diffuser: $20-35. The benefits of essential oils are incredibly diverse: soothing, energizing, or immune boosting to name just a few. Give the gift of self-care and a healthy, chemical-free way to make the house smell great this holiday season. Madelaine loves lavender or chamomile for relaxation, peppermint for focus or headaches, and thieves for an immune boost. .

6. A Creative Cookbook: $21 Against All Grain or Nourishing Meals are two of Madelaine's favorites, both would both be great whole-foods picks for some fresh and nutritious culinary inspiration.

7. Food Processor Budget Option: $72 Hamilton Beach's Big Mouth - great value, excellent durability/performance, easy to clean, but a little louder than pricier models. Splurge Option: $320 Breville's Sous Chef - quieter, more solid, and all the fun bells and whistles when it comes to attachments.

8. For the Tea lover: Tea Club Subscription or Loose-leaf tea infuser $20 Another wonderful way to get your antioxidants and beat the cold winter blues.

9. For the tech-lover: Want to work on being more mindful, but need some structure? We love this nifty and compact HeartMath InnerBalance monitor (plugs into your phone) to improve your focus, memory, response to stress, and more by practicing just a few minutes each day. New Year's resolution anyone?? Be sure to get the the one that goes with either your iPhone or android device.

10. CSA Membership: price varies. What is a CSA?? - Great question. CSA Stands for Community Supported Agriculture. CSA allows city residents to have direct access to high quality, fresh produce grown locally by regional farmers. When you become a member of a CSA, you're purchasing a “share” of vegetables and possibly some other farm-fresh food items from a regional farmer. Usually something new with every box, so an added bonus is that this also helps you try new things. A very thoughtful gift for your foodie loved one.
