As a fellow food lover and admirer of all things gastronomy, you can never go wrong by gifting me with gifts of the culinary persuasion. As more and more boutique and wellness brands become more widely available, it couldn’t be a better time to share your favorites with your loved ones. My 5 to Thrive “Gifting a Foodie” guide is a truly unique way to gift the food (or wellness) lover. These were chosen because they dually represent the cleansing lifestyle I live by and the excitement I have over amazing gifts 😉
These tiny vegetables make a big impression and make plant-based eating asbolutely eye catching. Fresh Origins Tiny VegetablesTM are almost too cute to eat. Baby carrots, turnips, leeks, celery, beets, parsnips, radish and onion micro-sized they can be enjoyed fresh, blanched, roasted, or sautéed. It’s a fun way to make vegetables the star and so fun for your gifted to open the delivery box.
From their chocolate chip muffins to their waffles and buns, you can’t go wrong gifting the health conscious foodie in your life with Know Better Bread. KNOW foods provides high quality, nutritionally superior goods that are natural, gmo-free, grain/gluten free and the best part, they taste GREAT. This is my new favorite product, created with a unique formulation, it ranks the best on overall nutritionals and glycemic index scales, and completely reshapes the way you’ll look at bread. I recommend sending the Sample Pack or the Waffles to impress.
Wow anyone on your list with high quality ingredient credibility. This heirloom bean gift set, features five varieties of heirloom beans picked by Rancho Gordo founder. Send small and meaty Santa Maria Pinquito beans, rich Midnight Black beans so fresh that they don’t even need to be soaked, Alubia Blanco beans, Classic Cranberry beans, and creamy, delicious Yellow Eye beans.
Adding a small portion of beans to meals once or even twice a day, as is the custom in its indigenous cuisines, can make it easier to reach your healthy weight, lower your risk of type II diabetes, heart disease and cancer, lower your dietary carbon footprint, and can be more easily tolerated than very large portions, less often.
La Tourangelle artisan nut oils are handcrafted in California, their collection of healthy, flavorful artisan is a great way for the home chef to elevate the taste & benefit of their creations. Use for salad dressings, grilled fish, baking and marinating. The avocado, walnut, or pumpkin seed oils are nutrient dense and high in Omega 3 fatty acids. The Walnut Oil is rich and complex, capturing the essence of walnuts without overpowering your palate. The Avocado Oil is perfect when you need a high quality oil that can safely reach smoke point, but also tastes incredible when unheated. Pumpkin Seed Oil is loaded with antioxidants and essential fatty acids, but should not be heated.
These oils don’t stay fresh forever, but best to choose one for gifting or divide between friends
