5 DAYS OF GIFTING (Day 2 of 5): Food & Wine

Holiday Gift Guide Day 1 of 5.png

We all deserve to indulge and enjoy delicious food, thoughtful gifts and quality time with loved ones during this season! However, the holidays are a time when a lot of us feel like we’re “off-track."

The truth is, there are choices we can make during this season to "do our best and forget the rest."

Another truth-bomb: Why waste money during the holidays on things that lose their sparkle by New Year’s Day?

Give gifts that make a difference and change someone else’s life. And while you’re at it, give YOURSELF gifts that change YOUR life, too.

Over the next five days, I'll share with you the gifts that I'm giving and recommending this year for the loved ones in your life.

Dry Farm Wines: www.dryfarmwines.com

For your health-conscious (or not-so-health conscious) wine-loving family member, this brand offers a sulfite-free, sugar-free and organic wine. Grapes are one of the most pesticide-treated produce items, so knowing that you’re gifting a delicious wine that’s a healthier option is a win-win. We’ll be purchasing a case this holiday season!

Butcher Box (Limited Time, 6 free steaks): www.butcherbox.com

Butcher Box sources their meat with the highest quality standards in mind. Their beef is 100% grass-fed and their chicken is free-range organic. With all the meat smoking and roasting our families do during the holidays, it’s the perfect gift for Dad or your favorite meat-enthusiast!

Thrive Market membership: www.thrivemarket.com

Our little family of two has been a Thrive Market member for years and it’s my favorite way to pick up specialty, health-conscious items with a click of a button and for reasonable prices. I usually have to go to Whole Foods, Sprouts AND Trader Joe’s to get my favorite items, but with Thrive I can get them all in one place!

Sunbasket ($35 off your first order): www.sunbasket.com

Of all the meal delivery services out there, this is the one I recommend to my clients. You can choose recipes by dietary preference: from vegan to paleo, you’re covered!

Cook for them!!

Is there anything more sweet than a delicious, healthy and homemade meal? Cooking from home adds extra Vitamin L to your food… Vitamin LOVE! Need inspiration? Check out my Thanksgiving menu.

Hormones Balance Cookbook by Magdalena Wszelaki: www.hormonesbalance.com/cfhb

Magdalena’s book has helped me and my clients navigate the whole hormone balancing conversation. It’s hard to know what foods help and heal. Magdalena’s book explains EVERYTHING and the recipes are incredibly yummy - both your food enthusiast and nutrition nerd will be pleasantly surprised!

Simply Real Health by Sarah Adler: www.simplyrealhealth.com/cookbook

Sarah’s lifestyle blog turned cookbook, Simply Real Health, is a no-fuss guide to cooking quick, healthy, REAL food that doesn’t sacrifice taste. Her recipes are a weekly staple in our house! I gift this book to my clients all the time and they love it!

On the fence? Here’s what you’re gifting yourself or your loved one when you purchase the Holiday Package.

Personalized Care & Support:

When was the last time your health professional asked you how you were doing and really listened? A health coach cares about you and has your best interests in mind. Health coaches aren’t measured on how quickly they can get their clients in and out of the door. Instead, we focus on our conversation with you, listen to your ideas, ask questions and provide advice and feedback. We’ve been where you are and will climb back into the trenches with you to help you get out. Bonus? Some health coaches even love to give gifts - because, hello! It’s a love language! Find a health coach who resonates with you and who will support your journey in an open, welcoming and positive way.

Find the right foods and eating habits for YOU:

Paleo? Whole 30? Vegan? Keto? Working with a health coach helps to demystify foods and diets. You’ll learn the difference between REAL health food and “fake” health food. The truth? One person’s food is another woman’s poison. So, you’ll figure out your personal blueprint for eating healthy, nourishing food.

The lifestyle that works for YOU:

Health isn’t just about the food on your plate. It’s about every component of life: career, social life, exercise, relationships. Do you ever get involved with a passion project and you're so fueled by the work that you lose track of time? OR, have you ever been in an awful relationship and you ate food to feel better about it? *raises both hands* Eat all the kale in the world, but if you’re surrounded by toxic relationships, you’ll be held back. Health coaches take a holistic approach to health and wellness, looking at how all areas of life are connected. Does stress at work cause you to overeat? Does lack of sleep or low energy prevent you from exercising? These are the questions you’ll get answers to when working with a health coach.

You’ll finally take action (with a lil’ kick in the you-know-what when you need it):

What do you think of when you think of living your healthiest, happiest life? Health coaches work with you create specific goals that bring you closer to that vision! Co-creating goals with reasonable time frames and actionable steps helps you focus on exactly what you’re working toward. You’ll get recommendations and even mini-assignments in between sessions that focus on you taking action. Not clear on your big, grand vision of health yet? That’s what taking the first step in connecting with a health coach is for!

 

Who wouldn’t want to spend $124 on a health transformation that sets the stage for the rest of their lives? Gift it to yourself or to someone you love.
