Hey guys! Just wanted to share with you a guest blog post I made for
The Nutrition Shoppe.
I figured it would come in handy for my readers, too!
It’s a great guide for some healthy gifts for the health conscious folks on your list. Or even if they’re not, maybe it would be a great headstart 😉

Make food preparation a little easier for the healthy cook on your list! We love this sturdy, functional design. Finished with bamboo wood, it resists scuffing and moisure. The slide-out mini-drawers save space while keeping ingredients separate.

Made with 100% grass fed meats and ingredients like cranberry and almond, these are gluten free protein bars that deliver an extremely high source of nutrients. We like the company’s dedication to all-natural ingredients, and these are perfect for the athlete or someone who is going low-carb. Great stocking stuffers!

Delicious Protein with Zero Artificial ANYTHING.
Chocolate Powerfusion tastes like chocolate milk, however it is made with New Zealand antibiotic/hormone free whey protein concentrate, natural cocoa powder, and all-natural stevia. No fillers, or artificial flavorings or colors to deal with. Just pure delicious protein without a chalky aftertaste. This is my favorite protein powder of all time!
There you go. Hope that helps you in your Christmas shopping! 🙂 I know I wouldn’t mind a couple of these gifts this year!
