Looking for the right gift idea for your healthy eater? We’ve created a healthy eating gift guide with lots of cool ideas for those healthy eaters in your life.
If you haven’t jumped on board the Kombucha Train, get ready to buy your ticket. Not only does it taste delicious (a little tart, yet still sweet enough to cause a craving) but it’s also overflowing with health benefits. It’s pretty much a superfood. Packed with probiotics, antioxidants and the ability to kill harmful bacteria, Kombucha is also believed to prevent type 2 diabetes, cancer, and heart disease.
With this kit, you can actually brew your own kombucha at home. Not only does it drastically reduce the cost but it can also turn into a nice little side hobby. It’s a perfect gift for the DIY health nut in your life.
I think it’s safe to say that pasta is pretty much the king of all foods, sharing the throne with the likes of pizza and cheeseburger. What’s the issue with pasta, though? It doesn’t do too much in the nutrition department. Veggies, on the other hand (generally not the most sought after food in terms of taste), are undeniably great for your health. We all want to eat more veggies but crave pasta.
How do we solve this dilemma, you ask? With the Spiralizer, of course! It lets you cut your veggies (squash, carrot, cucumber, etc.) into a shape similar to pasta and with a comparable consistency. It’s hard to truly compete with pasta, but this is a much healthier alternative and is an excellent addition to any of your favorite Italian meals.
A steamer is a great gift for anyone looking to really buckle down and commit to a strict diet. It really doesn’t get much healthier than steamed food. The three-tiered structure of the steamer allows you to cook the main course, side dish and appetizer all at the same time. Just think about how easy the clean up is after making a meal in this. If you know any bodybuilders about to start cutting fat, or someone trying to replicate the physique of Zac Efron in Baywatch, then this is the gift for them.
This is hands down the trendiest juicer on the market. It’s the kind of appliance that you don’t have to worry about finding counter space for because you’ll want it front and center. Whoever receives this gift will not only get a highly functional juicer but also a piece of art to proudly display in their house. SMEG has done a fantastic job at bringing back the style and class of the retro ’50s, while still producing great products. Anyone would love to have this in their house.
There are tons of useful appliances for people who are health conscious (many are in this article), but it’s hard to beat the blender. Starting the day with a smoothie that's jam-packed with fruits and veggies is a sure way to get you motivated to take over the world. Buying a blender can be tricky though. Blenders can fall anywhere on the price spectrum from “who in the world would buy this” all the way to “this will definitely explode and drench my kitchen in pureed fruit”.
The Ninja is great because it lands somewhere in the middle (the Goldilocks spot) but still has everything that you need, and will perform wonderfully. It also comes with a food processor unit perfect for homemade pesto or any of your other favorite sauces!
French fries, tater tots, fried chicken, oh my. Who would have ever thought that those foods would be mentioned in an article about what gifts to buy healthy eaters? Not most people. Cue, the air fryer. A knight in shining armor for all healthy eaters out there. Even the strictest dieters will succumb to cravings every once in a while. An air fryer will make sure that these cravings are satisfied the right way. Don’t let that lead you to believe that these are only good for making junk food healthier. You can also use these to crisp up some veggies, roast some stuffed-peppers, or toast some walnuts for a healthy snack.
Picking out the right gift for someone can feel like an arduous journey. Occasionally you'll be tempted to buy a gift that will be displayed in someone's house. This can be troublesome. If they don’t like it, then they have to awkwardly keep it just long enough for it not to seem weird for them to replace it with what they actually wanted in the space it occupied. It’s not fun for anyone involved. Knowing this makes buying the Just Ripe Fruit Bowl a no brainer. It not only provides utility by giving them plenty of storage but will also fit in many design schemes. Especially in a modern home. Most healthy eaters have an overabundance of fruits and veggies taking up space on their counter and will love to have more storage.
A cast iron skillet may not seem like a groundbreaking idea for a gift, but just wait until you see it through a different lens. Cast iron cookware is more than a surface to grill food on, it can also become a treasured heirloom. Some families pass these down for generations. Nothing ages better than cast iron that is cared for and treated well. Over time, if it's seasoned properly, the oil will settle into the metal and create a natural non-stick surface, giving it a smooth, polished finish that's only possible through years of usage
No kitchen is truly complete without a slow cooker. Especially for someone who needs to consistently cook healthy meals. It’s the ultimate no-fuss appliance, making the cooking process easy and the clean up a breeze. All you need to do is take a bunch of ingredients that complement each other, throw them in the slow cooker, and set the timer. This one also comes with preset timers, so you don’t even have to think about how long to keep the food in there. Eating healthy can feel like a huge burden and take up a surprising amount of time, but a simple slow cooker will make it all much more manageable.
Not only is the Aerogarden incredibly futuristic and will make you feel like you jumped into the world of The Jetson’s, but it’s also highly practical. Most health-conscious eaters will, at some point in there life, want to start a garden where they can grow their own food. It assures quality, smells fantastic, and lets you get the freshest food possible. The only issue is that they take up time and quite a bit of space.
With this garden, you just need to free up some space on the counter, buy some soil, plant the seeds and watch them grow. Then when you’re making some homemade pesto or need to garnish a dish, you can whip out some scissors and voila!
It also doesn’t hurt that it provides a clean, fresh aesthetic to whichever room you decide to put it in.
Alright, the title "Plastic Food Storage Containers" will have no doubt made you lose interest. That's understandable. In the world of gifts, plastic containers might summon about as much excitement as a visit to the dentist, but you'd be surprised how nice it can be to receive them.
To be a healthy eater, you need to make sure that you have fresh food. There are few things more frustrating than opening the fridge and seeing some moldy blueberries or soggy lettuce. Not only can you not eat what you were planning on (maybe a summer salad?) but now you have to go to the store and buy more, along with absorbing the cost of the moldy food that had to be thrown out.
These containers guarantee to seal in the food, let in as little oxygen as possible, and extend the life of the food inside. You’ll be giving someone a gift that saves them money and reduces hassle all at the same time. It also has the added benefit of looking way better than your standard, weak, Ziploc container.
Picture this. It’s 7:00 am on a Monday. You’ve just been forcibly awakened by your alarm clock in the middle of a dream where you were sipping mojitos on a beach in the Mediterranean... and now you’re questioning whether or not you really need your job. All you want to do before leaving heading off to work is suck down a quick cup of that lifesaving coffee. The issue is that you’ve just started eating better and you know that a quality breakfast is the foundation of a healthy day. That’s when the Magic Bullet comes into play.
At the intersection of simplicity and style, you’ll find this tea infuser. It’s always great to come across a product that makes life a little easier while looking snazzy at the same time. This product has those qualities. A good bottle can feel like a sidekick in your life. It goes with you wherever you go. You take it to the gym, to work, in the car. Where you are, it is also. That’s why whoever receives this gift will cherish it for years to come. Not only does it work as a bottle, but it can also brew hot tea or cold brew coffee. It’s a jack-of-all-trades.
Diets are a tricky subject. There are thousands of them out there. They all make claims about how much weight you can lose in however much time, but not many of them address the subject of health. Healthy eaters know that the first goal of your diet should be to eat nutritious, unprocessed foods that will give your body the fuel to function properly. That is the basis of the Whole 30. It teaches you what foods your body doesn’t like, and what foods your body loves. It’s a perfect reboot for your system and is the first step to a healthy diet.
With a growing population of people who have a sensitivity to lactose, the need for alternatives to cow milk has never been higher. The issue is that all the other options are always so expensive! When you go from milk, one of the cheapest grocery items, and jump up to soy or nut milk, your wallet will notice.
You can even tweak the recipe to add some unique flavors. Try putting some cinnamon in a batch of almond milk, or sweeten it with Stevia. There are tons of different add-ins to try.
This gift pairs well with the Air Fryer. Many of those air fried veggies will benefit from a little spritz out of the oil mister. Whether your putting oil on some popcorn, or a salad, or coating a nice cut of salmon before putting it in the oven, you run into the same issue. Oil always comes out of the bottle in a glob. You try to make the circular, spiral motion to spread it around, but it always ends up uneven. The oil mister solves this problem. By spraying, you can make sure to evenly coat any dish that it’s added to. It’s an excellent gift for anyone who loves to cook.
Matcha is a fantastic replacement for anyone trying to curb their coffee habit. It has caffeine, but not so much that you’re jittery and having mild panic attacks like when you drink too much coffee. It also has tons of great health benefits. Without going into too much detail, Matcha is basically green tea that has been handled a bit differently. Instead of steeping the leaves then removing them from the water as you would with green tea (or most tea for that matter), in matcha, the leaves are crushed up into a fine powder and mixed into the water. This gives it a creamy taste and also provides you with more nutrients than you would get with just steeping. Matcha is rich in antioxidants and studies have shown that it helps increase metabolism.
Our last item of the night may also be the best. Similar to the Spiralizer, the Frozen Dessert Maker works to replace a classic not so healthy dish with a healthy alternative. Smoothies are all the rage right now and get a lot of deserved attention, but let’s talk about frozen fruit desserts. With this machine, you can make a delectable dessert using nothing more than frozen mangoes. All you have to do is take the mangoes, thaw them slightly, then throw them in the Dessert Maker. The machine does the rest. That’s it. Seconds later you have a healthy dish that your whole family will go crazy for, and you can just sit back and bask in the glory that is The Frozen Dessert Maker.
If you know somebody that are into healthy eating, nutrition, healthy food, healthy cooking this gift list will help you to find the right gift for them.
