Your friends and family are probably snooping around asking random questions and trying to find out what you want for Christmas this year.
Whether your new to healthy living or its been your lifestyle for some time, this is a great time to consider what you need to be successful in your quest to be healthy!
Healthy Snacks to Fill the Stocking
I feel like my stocking has always been filled with chocolates and candies. So when I think to healthier options this season, I can always remember the random apple that we’d find in our “socks” at my grandparents house. Back then, it wasn’t my favorite find… and it’s hard to believe that I’m looking to healthify my stocking now! Here’s a few healthy snack ideas that would be lovely finds in your stocking…
Perky Jerky - Have you tried this stuff? It’s amazing! I particularly like the turkey perky jerky (say that three times fast!), and of course, that it’s a Colorado product. YUM-O!
Quest Bars – By now, you’ve probably heard of these yummy protein bar dreamboats… Amazingly delicious and all natural. I die for the Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough, the Banana Muffin, and the Cinnamon Roll flavors. They make the most delicious snacks… and perfect holiday treats!
Non-Food Items to Round out Those Socks
Sometimes the best packages are tiny and wrapped in a little bow, I’ve found. Here’s a few of my recommendations for this category:
Skinnie Minnie Sparkly Bic Bands - They’re glittery and make working out just a little more fun. They come in tons of different colors, and I always get tons of compliments on them when I wear them.
YurBuds Headphones – I absolutely love these headphones. Designed for women, the buds are JUST the right size for the ladies. And, they come in a bunch of fun neon colors… and can be picked up during your weekly Target run! I have the Inspire for Women earbuds in yellow!
Fitbit Flex - I’ve been wearing a Fitbit for the past two years, and I have to say… their products are fantastic! My pick this year is going to be the Fitbit Flex (the fitness tracker I wear) or their latest release the Fitbit Force.
I’m choosing the Fitbit Flex because you can accessorize it by changing out the bands… I mean, a girl loves to be stylish and fitness-oriented after all. Wearing a fitness tracker WILL keep you focused on your steps and your fitness levels each day. If you haven’t tried one of these, it’s time! LOVE!
Fierce Forward Abundance Bracelets - If you have a goal you’re working toward or perhaps need a beautiful daily reminder of your passion, these bracelets are the perfect gift.
I currently wear the Passion bracelet daily and am hoping to add to my collection this holiday season. I’ve also gifted the Run bracelet to my dear friend (and new runner ) Angela and Passion to one of my favorite bloggers. These make great gifts!
New Sneakers – There are SO MANY cute new sneakers out there to choose from!! Sometimes a new pair of shoes is the perfect thing to get you back in the gym or on that trail you love so much!
Affirmats – I’ve just recently been introduced to this brand, and I absolutely ADORE their mats. Everyone needs an amazing mat to practice on. These mats are not only sturdy and supportive… but incredibly inspiring!
Take a Dip Snack Containers for Your Busy Workdays – I’ve shared these containers many times on NTTC and each time I do, you guys rave about them. Why not ask for them for Christmas? They’re only $3.99 each and will help you enjoy your favorite snacks when you’re away from home.
PB2 - If you’re a peanut butter lover like me, it may be time to try Bell Plantation’s PB2 Powdered Peanut Butter. This amazing peanut buttery spread is the perfect substitute for the calorie-rich alternative, and you can use it for baking as well!
I buy it by the pound and use it daily in my Peanut Butter Overnight Oats I’m always talking about. Love this stuff!
Tablet Stand - Do you use your tablet in the kitchen to make new recipes you’ve found on the internet? Me too! How about this tablet stand to help your iPad sit upright? GENIUS! I bet this will help you to make even more delicious NTTC recipes
That’s my list of healthy must-haves this holiday season. Are there other healthy gifts you’re asking for this holiday season? Tell us all about it!
