In case you’re in the market for some inspiration as to what to add to the wish list or, if you need to buy for someone else, I thought I’d jot down some of my all-time affordable favourites for making healthy living that bit easier. Use this holiday gift guide as a hint or to buy for someone you know who deserves a healing treat.
THINGS I OWN, USE AND LOVE (in descending price order)
Breville Food Processor – I use mine at least twice a day, every day
Excalibur Dehydrator – many hours of fun to be had with this – think fruits, veggies, jerky, leathers, wraps …
Inspiralized Spiralizer – the best out there, my previous brand broke on a rutabaga – not this one!
Lodge Cast Iron Skillet – healthy breakfast (and more)
Instant Pot – need I say more? Where would the AIP community be without this. You NEED one!
Amola Bacon or Truffle Salt – Vancouver-made heaven in a stylish black box
Lodge Cast Iron Reversible Griddle – cooking multiple things means no more cold food for the cook
Lodge Cast Iron Baking Platter – aluminium-free baking, roasting etc

Gummy Moulds – in a multitude of different shapes and sizes
