Top 5 Paleo Christmas Gifts 2015

With Christmas fast approaching many of you are no doubt wondering what to get your loved ones for a gift. Sometimes people are predictable and easy to buy for, other times things can be a little more tricky. 

If your partner/spouse/friend or colleague are interested in Paleo or healthy living, maybe you have pondered whether to buy them something related to their lifestyle choices - I think this is a wonderful idea! Not only does it show that you have been listening to us as we rabbit on about the merits of Paleo living but it means you have actually considered getting us something we will really use and value! 
Also, someone you love may be considering taking on Paleo from 1st January and what better way to encourage them then to buy them a Paleo gift to begin their journey with? 

Here are a list of the top 5 Paleo gifts which are perfect for any Paleo devotee or Paleo wanna be! 

5. The Paleo Book 

There are a growing number of excellent books on the literary market dedicated to Paleo. A book can be a great way to learn about the subject of Paleo to educate before taking it on. Some of the most popular include Mark Sisson's "Primal Blueprint", Rob Wolfe's "The Paleo Solution", Sarah Fragoso's "Everyday Paleo" and my personal favourite Diane Sanfillipo's "Practical Paleo". Diane's book is excellent and one which I always recommend as a first port of call for anyone interested in learning about Paleo. Buy it here.  I also really recommend Chris Kresser's "The Personal Paleo Code" and "Mediterranean Paleo Cooking" which is new release and really good!

4. The Slow Cooker
 I love mine and use it really frequently. I really believe it is a kitchen must have for the busy mum or shift worker. The merits of the slow cooker are numerous! Stick some meat and herbs and veggies in before you go to work in the morning and leave it there. Come home after work to delicious tender meat - ready to eat as soon as you are! I also regularly make bone broth overnight, or cook soup all night and have it ready to simply decant into my thermos for lunch the next day. A slow cooker is an excellent gift for your Paleo friend (or yourself!)

3. The Paleo Plan 
Does your other half or friend struggle with taking on new lifestyle choices? Do they need extra support but are not sure of where to find it? Maybe they want to eat clean but don't know where to start? This January I will be launching my brand new protocol which helps you take on the fundamentals of clean living. It goes beyond diet to look at other aspects of health such as sleep, movement and removing stimulants. Why not pay for them to join as the ultimate Christmas gift.

2. Nutribullet
 The Nutribullet has fast become the must have kitchen gadgets for the health conscious! It is super powerful so can really pulverise all those fruits and veggies in smoothies (there is nothing worse that blueberry skins stuck in your teeth while drinking a smoothie) It is also strong enough to make nut butters and even your own coconut milk. The best part?! It is so easy to clean! This is so important. My juicer doesn't get used much as I hate cleaning it! 

You can buy the Nutribullet in Argos.

NutriBullet - Grey.

1. Spiraliser 
I purchased one of these a few tears ago and LOVE it!  A spiraliser is a gadget which takes pride of place in every Paleo kitchen. It allows us to recreate "pasta" by producing perfect vegetable spirals every time.  I use this every week for my spaghetti and really never miss the pasta!

I hope this list helps those of you struggling to buy Paleo gifts!

  2. My partner and I have been considering switching to a paleo diet for a little while now so we might get a few of the books you recommend and take the final step. There is just so much good buzz at the moment about this sort of lifestyle that I really think its worth trying

  3. This could be a great guest post on our blog! Well, obviously Christmas is over, but my readers can surely prepare as early as now for this year's Christmas. Or the list can serve as a 'great gift ideas' list for all occasions.
