My Favorite Things

December 08, 2010

Just in time for Christmas, I present (drum roll please)... my favorite things-healthy edition!  Here are some gift ideas for those on your list - or maybe for a treat for yourself!  Every single one of these things I own or have tried and I LOVE. 

Camelbak Better Bottle
This is my water-drinking workhorse!  It has a bite valve that attaches to a straw, and it makes it very easy to drink water! 

Cuisinart KS-55 Weight Mate Digital Kitchen Scale
If you are trying to do ANY sort of portion control, a digital scale is a MUST HAVE!  This one is compact, lightweight, accurate, and a reasonable price!  I love it.

The #1 thing that keeps me running.  Its a sensor that you can attach to your shoe, that communicates with your iPod and tracks your distance, speed, etc.  The sensor fits inside of special Nike+ shoes, but if you don't have a those shoes just buy the holder, and attach to your shoe.  That's what I have and it works great!
Lands End Nylon Pieced UltraLight Jacket Perfect lightweight jacket for running - breathable, and has pockets for iPods and the like!
Awesome Sweat Wicking Long Underwear, makes for a great bottom layer on cold days.  These are sold at Target, so score on that too!
Best knives ever!  Should cover 99% of anything you need to cut - thinks lots of fruits and veggies!
At only 100 calories and 1.5 grams of fat this is a steal of a treat!  It also has 9 grams of fiber!  Add a little scoop of light ice cream for a decadent and delicious brownie sundae!
One of my favorite teas.  I love the spicy cinnamon flavor.  Naturally sweet too, so you can easily cure a craving for something sweet, without spending even one calorie.

Do you have a Wii?  Do you want to have lots of fun, and burn off some calories doing it?  Is your family boring and you need to spice things up at a gathering?  You get the picture! 

Sweat Wicking Headbands from Scarlett Craft
Runner and Crafter that makes awesome headbands
And there you have it... I wish I could be like Oprah, and give you all one of everything... maybe someday when I'm rich and famous!

Disclosure:  None of these products/companies asked me to post information about them.  I am doing it because these are things I love and think you will too!  Items that I've linked through Amazon are linked through the Amazon Affiliate program, so if you end up clicking on the link and buying it, I get a very tiny commission - maybe enough to eventually buy a 4 point glass of wine.

  1. I can attest for at least two of these things which I use/have: the Camelbak water bottle totally rocks! And vitatops are the best thing since sliced bread (which reminds me, I've gotta get some of those knives - they look perfect!)

  2. Jess - a food scale is a MUST HAVE in my opinion. I would go digital - I have had both the Weight Watchers food scale and the Cuisinart one above, and I love both!

    fatgirlwearingthin - I love that bottle so much, I just got it about 6 weeks ago and it has made a huge change in my water intake! As for the Furi knives, when I got them they were over $100, I think on Amazon today they were like $58, so I say good deal!
