Healthy food gift ideas for Christmas
Australians are on average likely to gain up to one and a half kilos over the Christmas period.** It’s a sobering thought.
Your average health nut is likely to be aware of the excesses around them. That doesn’t mean they don’t want an extra treat too.
The trick is to find them something that’s interesting but isn’t packed with ‘hard to shift’ calories.
That will mean foods that are not only low in sugar and fat but also contain a little extra zing to give them a health kick.
Dried superfruits such as goji berries would be a great choice along with healthy herbal supplements like ginkgo or ginseng.
Get personal by packaging gifts yourself
Go for exotic teas and coffees or spicy nuts and seeds.
These are the sorts of gifts you can arrange in your own style so that they’re packaged tastefully with a personal touch.
You could also give a cookbook that’s full of healthy recipes or a gift token to a favourite health food store.
If your loved one lifts weights regularly, they’re going to need lots of extra protein to build muscle.
Go for a high-quality protein supplement with added creatine.
Take things a step further with a specialist blender so that they can buff up with their own healthy post-gym recipes.
