My third annual Healthy Holidays Gift Guide for 2013 is live!
If you’re looking for some great gift ideas (of course you are), you’ve come to the right place.
As usual, there are some new discoveries and some old faves. Enjoy!
Jim Gaffigan Mr Universe DVD
Laughter is good medicine and you need it in high doses.
Not only is Jim Gaffigan hilarious, but unlike the majority of
stand-up comics out there today, he’s also super clean.
(If I had to rate this, I would give it a PG)
Buy one for yourself and ten copies for gifts.
You can thank me later.
OXO 3-in-1 Avocado Sliver
Early this year our friends D-Rock and Ginger Calcote (Shout out!) gave us an OXO 3-in-1 Avocado Slicer
after I coveted theirs.
This thing is the bomb.
It makes splitting, pitting and slicing avocados super easy.
Known to inspire “Why didn’t I think of that!” reactions.
For the man who would enjoy an assortment of cool healthy stuff…
Every Man Jack Deodorant $5 (Citrus makes my armpits smell delicious)
Weleda After Shave Balm $14.50 (Comes in a handsome blue glass bottle)
Herban Cowboy Shave Soap $6 (Great lather, and super manly “dusk” scent)
Giovanni D:tox System Facial Cleansing Towelettes $9 (Love these for travel)
Lifefactory Glass Beverage Bottle $21 (This one has sporty flip top, easier to drink from)
Living Raw Cacao Truffles $5 (Coconut Kharma and Kickin’ Cayenne were both exquisite)
Snapware Glasslock Food Storage Containers
We really really really love our Snapware Glasslock storage containers.
They have an airtight lid that keeps food fresh and won’t leak or spill,
and they are dishwasher and oven safe. Goodbye tupperware.
Berkey Water Filters
The Berkey is portable, requires no power or water pressure, and will even filter pond water. And the two filters inside will purify 6,000 gallons of water before needing replacement.
I took this pic of my sister Lindsay after we put her Big Berkey together.
I also made a video about our Berkey you can watch here.

Clean up your shower water with a Showerwise Filter. It removes 95% of chlorine as well as iron, lead, mercury, hydrogen sulfide, and more. It also inhibits bacterial, fungal and mildew growth. I never thought my shower steam had an “odor” until I installed our Showerwise filter.
Afterward I noticed right away that the shower smell (chlorine and who knows what else) was gone. It comes with a massaging shower head and the Chlorgon KDF-55 filter typically last 12-18 months.
L’Equip XL Juicer
It has a has a 3″ feeding tube, stainless steel bowl, blade and basket, and it’s fast, easy to use, easy to clean up, takes up very little counter space, and comes with a 6 year warranty.
It has a 900 watt motor and it’s very compact, ideal for small kitchens. A lot of my health nut friends travel with it.
This a great gift or starter blender for someone on a budget.
Vita-Mix 5200 Blender
And of course I have to close with the Vita-Mix 5200, the awesomeness of which cannot be overstated. It is Consumer Reports’ highest rated blender and the single most versatile kitchen appliance on planet earth.
Built in the USA with at least 70% American components and comes with a 7-year warranty and 30-day free trial.
Also includes 400 recipes for smoothies, blended veggie juice, nut butters, soups, salsa, guacamole, healthy ice cream, even how to churn fresh butter and mill whole grains.
And it comes in red, white, black and stainless. We have a red one which often travels with us.
