I know, I know. Gift guides have to be getting old. Every blogger does them and most of the time they contain the same things. I’m hoping this paleo gift guide is a little different than the rest. Below are some of my favorite kitchen items that make paleo livin’ much easier.
1// Ninja Professional Blender
I bought this on a whim a few months ago and quickly became obsessed. I really like that it comes with single serving cups. These are great to use when making a quick smoothie in the morning. You know it’s a great blender when it’ll blend up dates! This one does it easily!
2// Ninja Express Chop
Every women knows this story. You go into target for one thing…and you walk out with a food processor. Normal, right? I love this for making cashew hummus, power balls, banana chocolate ice cream and chopping onions. This is probably my most used kitchen appliance.
3//S’well Teakwood Water Bottle
I have two S’well water bottles and am obsessed. They’re perfect for hot yoga and hot days in Texas. I love putting ice and water in it before I go to bed, waking up and ice still being there! Seriously amazing.
4// The Whole30 Cookbook: 150 Delicious and Totally Compliant Recipes to Help You Succeed with the Whole30 and Beyond
The next Whole30 cookbook will be released Dec. 6! I got the pre-order for my birthday and I am pumped to see what amazing recipes Melissa has to share with us! This is a great gift for that person who constantly mentions wanting to try a Whole30, but hasn’t fully committed yet.
5// Lodge Cast Iron Skillet
I use my cast iron skillet at least three times a week. Remember my potato breakfast bowls I posted awhile back? Always made in a skillet. I love to let them roast on the stove top for a bit, then stick them in the oven with the broil on for just a few minutes. It helps make them nice and crispy.
6// Veggie Bullet
So, I don’t have this amazing tool yet, but I want it so bad! If you’re tired of using a normal spiralizer and you’re looking for something fancier. Here you go! It’s like an electric spiralizer. I’m obsessed with the idea of being able to spiralize sweet potatoes without the potato breaking every few moments.
7// KEKU Cooking Tongs
Weirdly, I use tongs ALL THE TIME. I use them for meats, vegetables and sometimes even eggs. Sadly, they are a pain to store, but totally worth finding the extra space for.
Let me know what you’re hoping to find under the tree this year!
