Must-have kitchen items list
Some the the kitchen items in this must-have kithchen items list are so basic that you will want to check first if the person you want to give it to doesn't already have it.
Kitchen Scale Weight Grams and Oz
First of all, I highly, highly recommend using a kitchen scale for baking.
Measuring the weight of the ingredients is much more accurate than using cups which makes baking much more fail proof.
Last but not least, it is very convenient: less washing up to do than when you use cups!
I love measuring spoons! So easy to get exactly ¼ teaspoon or ⅛ teaspoon.
Wooden kitchen utensils are simply a must have in every kitchen.
This is very convenient to measure your liquids like the quantity of water to add to your soup.
Cutting boards are another must have in every kitchen. I use wooden cutting boards as I find them better for health than plastic ones.
These basic kitchen utensils are great for daily kitchen tasks like flipping whatever you're grilling or using as zucchini noodles server and much more.
This is a staple in every kitchen, to store leftovers, meal prep... As they are oven safe, I often use them to make a small oven baked dish. I'm using glass food storage containers since I got rid of the ones I had in plastic.
Faceted French Glass Jelly Jar
These faceted jars are a real French classic. Those versatile glass jars can be used to preserve your seasonal harvest (dried herbs…), homemade spreads or jams… You can use them again and again and again.
This thing makes perfect vegetable spirals. I use this to make my Vegan Zoodles. But of course you can use it for other vegetables. I offered this to my mother last Christmas.
This hand heald blender allows you to blend in any container. For example I use an immersion blender when I make my Chicken Noodle Soup on the stove.
This high powered blender is amazing! It's easy to use and easy to clean. You can use it to make nut butters, soups, healthy ice cream and much more. This is a long lasting gift (Vitamix blenders come with a 5-to-10 year warranty).
You can either buy a brand new Vitamix or a reconditioned one.
Here is the juicer that I use whenever I want to make myself a vegetable and fruit juice like my Zucchini and Apple Juice or my Beetroot and Carrot Juice.
I've been using a chef coat for many, many years. Why? Because with an apron my sweater sleeves and the sides of my chest weren't protected and I always ended up staining them. Lol! Cool thing is that you can have your name embroidered on it.
Non toxic cookware
I got this Cristel frying pan when I decided to ditch the teflon for a safer cookware. It goes in the dishwasher and it is easily stored. You can see it in several pictures on my blog like in my Chicken Curry without coconut milk.
If you're looking for a high quality stainless steel sauce pan, look no further. This Cristel sauce pan is the best.
I love cooking in a cast iron skillet! I use mine on a daily basis. It's easy to wash and doesn't need seasoning. You can see it on a few of my recipes like my Gluten free Chicken and Veggie Stir Fry or my Sweet potato breakfast hash (AIP, paleo, whole30).
Le Creuset Cast-Iron Dutch Oven
I absolutely love this kitchen item !! I use it several times a week. It is so easy to use and to wash and doesn't need seasoning. It is the kind of kitchen utensil that lasts a lifetime! You can see it being used in my Dutch oven pork tenderloin with oranges or my Chunky Carrot Soup and in many more Gluten free Dutch oven recipes on my blog.
I already know that I will use it for the next 50 years (well if I'm still alive till then! lol). Another thing that I love is that you can choose from a large array of colors.
Gifts for healthy eaters who bring lunch with them
Healthy eaters often prepare their own lunches to keep control of the ingredients used in their dishes. Especially when they are gluten free, paleo or AIP.
So here are the utensils that I currently use and love (after trying many!) for my lunches at work.
This is my every day lunch box. It is leak proof (so important!!), oven safe and plastic free.
This is the lunch box I use whenever I want to bring a hot lunch with me. It stays hot for several hours and it doesn't leak so I sometimes bring soup in it.
Stainless Steel Isothermal Bottle
Since I have ditched plastic bottles here is what I use now. You can of course choose from a large range of colors and if you don't like flowers you can choose plain colors.
Well in my opinion, this cool box is the best. It keeps your lunch perfectly cool for many hours.
Other gifts for healthy eaters
Although those gifts have nothing to do with food, they have everything to do with a healthy lifestyle. I believe that healthy eaters might also be interested in those.
Fitbit Health & Fitness Tracker
I've had a Fitbit tracker for more than 4 years now and I still wear one everyday. I love that it counts my steps and gives me several times a day a little reminder that I should walk a little bit. I'm so proud of myself when it congratulates me because I have exercised.
A yoga mat is great for yaoga of course but also to stretch, meditate or do a little bit of relaxation.
That's it for this list of gifts for healthy eaters. I hope this has helped you somehow. If so, do not hesitate to share it!
