Last-minute gift ideas for health nuts

December 23, 2013

Katie Cavuto, owner of Healthy Bites, says a microplane is a great, low-budget stocking stuffer for the amateur chef on your list.

"It is my favorite healthy kitchen tool. Great for zesting citrus lemons, limes, even garlic, ginger spices, even dark chocolate," she said.

As for the person who is always on the go, Katie recommends reusable lunch bags already lined with ice packs to keep food cold.

"You just pop them in the freezer, pull them out when you are ready to go," said Cavuto.

The holidays typically include lots of cookies and cakes, but you can look for natural bars with healthy ingredients. Or, you can make your own mix with nuts and berries.

For the avid exerciser, you can get a fitness band, which tracks steps, calories and sleep.

For an even bigger-ticket item, check out high- performance blenders.

"You can do everything like juices that still have all the fiber to really healthy smoothies, sauces, soups and it comes with recipes. This is an awesome idea," Cavuto said.

Some other gift ideas include gift certificates to fitness classes, cooking classes or workout gear.
