Boxes and baskets full of delicious treats are a timeless holiday tradition and a thoughtful way of letting someone know you care. And with Christmas right around the corner, they’re also a great choice for those hard-to-shop-for individuals on your list. This year, give your loved one a gift that is nutritious, delicious, and the perfect way to start the new year.
Check out some of these healthy Christmas gifts that are perfect for vegans and non-vegans alike.
You may have seen at-home grow kits for herbs, but what about for sprouting seeds? Even for those loved ones without a green thumb, growing seeds and legumes from home guarantees that you will always have what you need when you need it. Plus, you know that it’s free from pesticides and other chemicals.
Each kit contains 100% organic, non-GMO, kosher, vegan, raw seeds, and sprouts. Broccoli, alfalfa, radish, mung, and clover are all nutrient-dense and highly versatile ingredients that will spruce up any dish.
Sprouting kits are small enough for the most compact of spaces, and are one of the easiest things to grow inside. It requires no special equipment or even a sunny window. Sprouting vegetables also contain plenty of nutrients to promote digestion, thanks to their rich fibre levels. And, these veggies are something that grows any time of the year!
If your loved one prefers cooking over baking, these ingredients work just as well in any number of dishes and beverages, including cocktails! You don’t have to be vegetarian or vegan to appreciate wholesome nutrition that comes from kits like this one!
For more vegan-friendly ingredients, be sure to check out the organic flours gift box, which comes with barley, buckwheat, Kamut, millet, and whole spelt flours.
If you have a friend or loved one who loves running but already has all the gadgets and equipment, this gift box is a great idea. This gift box includes five uniquely balanced products: organic acai berry and spirulina powders, raw nuts and berries, pumpkin and chia seeds, and even pumpkin seed protein powder.
These foods are excellent sources of vitamins, minerals, and nutrients to power through physical exertion and support more effective training. For those with an active lifestyle, this gift box is a great choice.
A significant number of adults do not consume enough omega-3s, which are crucial for lowering and managing blood pressure and heart health. Since omega-3s are found primarily in fish and seafood, it can be difficult for vegans to ensure they get enough of this vital nutrient.
Luckily, there are other sources of omega-3s that are vegan-friendly and portable for easy, on-the-go snacking. This box contains sunflower, pumpkin, Chinese hemp, chia, and golden flaxseeds. Not only are these ingredients rich in omega-3s but also have other compounds that vegans may not get enough of, including zinc, phosphorous, copper, and more.
During the winter, it’s common to feel sluggish and tired because of the limited sunlight. However, this gift box is the perfect idea for those on your list who need a healthy pick-me-up. Skip the artificial energy drinks and sugary lattes and opt for organic brazil nuts, pecans, walnuts, almonds, cashews.
These nuts have the right balance of healthy fats, protein, and antioxidants that will keep you feeling fuller so you can fight those post-Christmas leftover cravings and stick to that resolution.
There is a vast selection of powders, and each one has its own health benefits. We have included powders that not only taste great but have as much nutrition as flavor: acai, goji, sacha inchi, maca, and mesquite.
