Healthy Gifts for the Holidays!

Healthy Gifts for the Holidays!
Sheila Kemper Dietrich

It is very interesting to me that so many people think it is contrary to gift giving to give healthy gifts for the holidays. Somehow there is this myth that by giving someone something for their good health we will be affronting or offending them. To me the greatest gift we can give someone is a gift supporting and promoting his or her good health. To support what I hope will be a growing trend, here is a list of Healthy Gifts for the Holidays:

For those who want to give a homemade baked-good:

Banana-Date Flaxseed Bread

Maple Squash Muffin

For those who like to give thought provoking books:

State of Slim by James O. Hill, PhD and Holly R Wyatt, MD

Cooked by Michael Pollan

For those who like to give cookbooks:

Cooking Light Cooking Through the Seasons: An Everyday Guide to Enjoying the Freshest Food

Cooking Light Way to Cook Vegetarian: The complete visual guide to Meatless cooking

(both recommendations are from Cooking Light because they also provide exact serving sizes and calories; something other cookbooks do not offer)

For those who love to give hostess gifts and/or are looking or a flavorful stocking stuffer:

Gayle’s HerbSalt

Livliga Wine Glasses-- pair it with your favorite tasty red wine

For those who like to give gifts that pamper:

Bath Salts for soaking in the Bath Tub

Massage Wherever you Live

(Massage Envy has locations in just about every city which is great for those who travel a lot as well as friends who live in different locations)

For those who like to give gadgets:


iPad Chef Stand

Popcorn Popper

For those who have a kid in their life:

Award Winning Children’s Book: Sammie & Sax in the Land of Quinoa: The Search for a Balanced Meal
