Gift Guide for the Healthy Cook by Inspiralized

In the spirit of the holiday gift guide bandwagon, today I’m sharing my favorite picks for the healthy cook!

Of course, my #1 gift idea is the Inspiralized cookbook, which will ship out in early March 2015. To make it gift-appropriate, if you enter your purchase order number in this form, you’ll be e-mailed a cute gift insert with a recipe starter guide!

While the below links bring you to Amazon, all of these products can be found on, an amazing place to find everything you need for the home – and they always have great deals and super speedy shipping. PLUS, if you want to buy anything listed above at Casa (instead of Amazon), there is a great extended Cyber Week going on, so just copy & paste the bold titles into the search function: Up to 70% off kitchen, dining & more at Free 2 day shipping on orders $49+.

2 OXO Good Grips Soap Dispensing Palm Brush – a necessity for cleaning the spiralizer!

3 Cuisinart Steel Rechargeable Salt & Pepper Mills – grinding your salts and peppers adds more robust flavor and avoids using processed packaged salts.

4 Old Dutch 24oz Solid Copper Hammered Moscow Mule Mug – I’m all about these copper mugs and every healthy cook deserves a cocktail after cooking!

5 Cuisinart 3.5 Quart Programmable Slow Cooker – digital programmable slow cookers are my favorite and this 3.5 quart is the perfect size for those who don’t need to cook for a big family.

6 Kuhn Rikon Vase Oil Mister – this allows the healthy cook to control how much oil is used during cooking AND you can infuse your oils with fresh herbs.

7 OXO Good Grips Food Scale – to keep your portions controlled, a food scale is a big help since when following along to healthy recipes, you’re going to need to be exact on measurements and weights.

8 OXO Good Grips Potato Masher – when I don’t have crushed tomatoes on hand, I crush the tomatoes in the skillet with a potato masher, like this. It’s a super helpful, quick trick!

9 DKNY Round Salad Bowl – all healthy cooks eat salad, right? Why not give them a gift to serve in style (it makes salad way more exciting!)

10 Cuisinart Mini Prep 3-Cup Food Processor – food processors allow you to make your own healthy sauces instead of buying canned ones with added preservatives. Also, this is what I use to make Inspiralized rice!

11 Guacamole Bowl – I mean, this needs no explanation. How cute!

12 Mr. and Mrs. Muse Salt and Pepper Shakers by Jonathan Adler – it can sometimes be tough to convince your boyfriend/girlfriend to eat healthy, but if you set the mood right with cute accents like this, it helps!

13 Calphalon Nonstick Flatbottom Wok – stir-fries are best made in woks, because of the temperature control offered by the shape of the wok. Stir fries are a quick and easy way to whip up a healthy Asian-inspired Inspiralized meal!

14 Browne Cuisipro 13″ Silicone Pasta Tongs – soft pasta tongs are ideal for tossing vegetable and fruit noodles, since they’re gentler.
