The holidays are a wonderful time to share the gift of health…. but finding that great gift can sometimes be a bit of a challenge.
In hopes of reducing your stress this holiday season, I’ve made a list of my favorite healthy, useful and tasty gift ideas. This is a great way to share your healthy lifestyle with your friends and family… or maybe add to your own wish list.

At only $129, this box provides at least 20 individual meals (5-8 oz portions), which is about $6.50 per meal for some of the highest quality meat on the market.
Ghee is the purified essence of butter and is LOADED with omega 3 and omega 9 essential fatty acids, a great source of Vitamin A, D, E, and K, and it is also ideal for fighting against the destructive effects of free radicals!
When using ghee you will have the pure, delicious healthy fats of butter but no potential problems from lactose, whey, or casein. The fats found in ghee help stabilize blood sugar and are necessary for the body to make healthy hormones.

Their olives are hand picked in Greece from non-GMO trees that are a century old. The cold press their olive oil within 48 hours of harvest and then send it out for chemical analysis to ensure it is only of the highest quality.

I recommend Thrive Market to anyone who is short on time or just plain dreads grocery shopping, but still wants to eat health.

Consider Muse your personal meditation assistant. Meditation is a powerful tool to decrease stress, inflammation and anxiety, but it can be hard habit for someone of us to start….or feel like we are doing it right.
That’s where Muse comes in! Muse measures whether your mind is calm or active, and translates that data into weathers sounds. Muse helps gently guide your busy mind back to a state of calm should it start to wonder. After each session, review your data, set goals, and build a deeply rewarding meditation practice that gets better every time.
