Must-have kitchen items
Some of the kitchen items in this must-have kitchen 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.
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.
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 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).
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 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 those 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 which would make perfect gifts.
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.
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.
Here are some books that will make perfect gifts for the healthy eaters in your life, whether they are a beginner or not.
A Gluten-Free, Grain-Free & Dairy-Free Cookbook.
A year of easy, delicious, plant-based and allergy-friendly bakes for everyone to enjoy
A French novel about a woman's journey to lasting joy and true fulfillment. A feel-good story filled with happy-life tips.
If you want more books, you can check my Natural Health Resources page.
If you are looking for something a bit different, why not consider gifts that cater to a healthy lifestyle? There are other ways to help your loved one on their journey to wellbeing than anything related to the kitchen.
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 you found some inspiring ideas. And if you want more gift ideas, you can check my Blogger gift guide.
