We don’t always associate the holiday season with health. Historically, Santa hasn’t come flying down the chimney for a kale salad. And sure, potato latkes have a vegetable in their name, but that doesn’t necessarily make them good for you. But when it comes to stocking stuffers, you don’t have to default to candy canes and giant snowman-shaped Pez dispensers. In fact, we’ve rounded up a few of our favorite gifts under $25 for those who value being healthy(ish) that we think are way more exciting (and thoughtful) than any holiday-themed candy.
Some healthyish eaters are great cooks, while others are better at talking about nutritious meals rather than actually making them. Project Foodie is an app designed for veteran chefs and novices alike... and good for a year’s worth of recipes, pro tips, and blow-by-blow cooking instructions.
How often do you get to rub your favorite healthyish foods all over your face? If your answer isn’t “I’m doing that right now,” you obviously haven’t met Skin Dirt. Made with all-natural ingredients like turmeric and coconut milk, these face masks keep skin happy, healthy, and well-fed.
Thanks to the fact that we’ve recently become #FermentationNation, kimchi, a flavorful staple of Korean cuisine, has found its way into the U.S. diet as a tasty source of probiotics (hey, happy gut bacteria!). This three-day DIY kit is a perfect stocking stuffer for healthy foodies interested in fermenting their own food.
