Health Nut Holiday Gift Guide

Blenders, skillets, and books oh my! Each day I find myself drooling over kitchen gadgets, appliances and cookbooks. As I was catching up on my friend over at Wannabe Green she gave me the great idea to publish my top food and nutrition related gifts that I want for Christmas this year plus a gift guide for those of you shopping last minute for that health nut in the family!

My Birthday/Christmas Wish List

Handful Bra- A bra that actually flatters, not flattens! A good sports bra is hard to come by and I have been wanting to try this one for awhile.

This award-winning book from the world's leading authority on food and nutrition is packed with the latest nutrition advice for every age and stage of life. Treasured by RDs and consumers alike, this "everything guide" gives readers the basics on nutrients, the latest in food trends, "how-tos" on selecting and preparing foods to get the most nutritional bang for your buck and more!
Yonanas frozen treat maker- What's this a yogurt maker?? This appliance only calls for the flavors your crave! Hint Hint Brian--> It can be bought at Best Buy =)
Blender bottle- Oh shaker bottles. The genius who thought of these. Such a simple, yet essential tool. Don't have one? Oh, you must get one. It is essential for me because by the time I get home from the gym I have completely forgotten about post exercise nutrition because I'm so tired. Wonderful for on-the-go meals!
Isobag 3 meal system (mega lunch box!)- I commute to work, so I basically pack up everyday like I am going out-of-town. Every morning I pack up breakfast, lunch, 2 snacks, pre and post workout shakes. I'm quickly out growing my little lunch box.
Vitamix- The holy grail of kitchen blenders, yes the Vitamix. Every time the infomercial comes on I try and force Brian to watch it. Of course he sees absolutely no need to spend are hard earned money on a blender. But, it is not just a blender! It makes likes so much more simpler. Smoothies, hot soups, ice cream, yogurt.... If you have yet to see this on the home shopping network, please go DVR it right now! It will change your out look on life...well blenders =) You can even get them refurbished with an awesome warranty.
