Are you trying to figure out what to get a friend or family member this holiday season? It can be hard to pick out gifts for certain people. You don’t want to get them something unoriginal, and you want to get them something they’ll really use. We’ve stepped outside the box of a pair of jeans or a new shirt and have some great, healthy holiday gift ideas for everyone.

 

When it comes to healthy gifts, you have to think which gifts are going to best suit the people you are buying them for. Are they trying to be more active, or are they taking yoga classes? Maybe they are into food and would benefit from cookbooks or kitchenware. We hope the following gifts give you some inspiration. Happy shopping!

 

#1: Vegetable Spiralizer

This is an easy-to-use kitchen tool that can help you get creative and healthy with your meals. You can make zucchini or cucumber noodles, or thin potato shavings that you can make into homemade chips. Most spiralizers come with a little book that gives you ideas too!

 

#2: Spa Package

While the holidays are great for spending time with family, the end of the year can often create a lot of stress. What better way to unwind than at the spa? You can even gift someone a massage so that they can lower stress and feel more relaxed. Pssst…this is a great gift for moms.

 

#3: Indoor Herb/Vegetable Garden

Having fresh vegetables or herbs in your kitchen can inspire someone to cook healthier, more natural meals. Green onions, parsley, cilantro, basil, celery, or a variety of sprouts are great indoor veggies & herbs you can grow in pots in your windowsill.

 

#4: Dog Light or Light-up Leash

Some of your friends might be dog lovers, almost to the point where they treat them like their own children. Since it gets dark quite early in the winter months, a dog light or light-up leash is great because it won’t stop them from taking their canine friends out for an evening walk.

 

#5: Fruit/Vegetable of the Month Club

Sometimes, people are daunted by the produce section in a grocery store, or they may just skip over it altogether. Getting a subscription to a fruit/vegetable of the month club is a great gift because the company delivers healthy, fresh produce straight to the person’s door. These services are readily available in many cities and provide delicious seasonal produce!

 

#6: Athletic/Yoga Attire

It is quite common for people to have a New Year’s resolution to get fit or live a healthier lifestyle. Athletic wear or yoga attire may give them that extra push to really take control of their physical health.

 

#7: The Dherbs 180 Challenge

This may not be the new, sleek laptop someone has been eyeing, but it is a way to completely turn a person’s life around. If you do end up purchasing the 180 Challenge, it can be great to buy one for yourself to do it with the person. This way he or she will have a partner to tackle health and weight loss goals. There are a lot of special perks that accompany the challenge so check it out for more info.

Our Favorite Raw Soups For National Gazpacho Day https://www.dherbs.com/articles/our-favorite-raw-soups-for-national-gazpacho-day/ https://www.dherbs.com/articles/our-favorite-raw-soups-for-national-gazpacho-day/#comments Thu, 06 Dec 2018 09:15:13 +0000 https://www.dherbs.com/?p=88757 Annually observed on December 6th, National Gazpacho Day celebrates the widely consumed, utterly tasty, classic Spanish dish of gazpacho.

Despite what you may have heard, gazpacho is not a juice, smoothie, or anything else. It is simply gazpacho, which belongs to classic Spanish cuisine. Although it is typically consumed in the warmer months of summer, gazpacho can be enjoyed throughout the year. Even though gazpacho recipes have similar ingredients, there is always room for creativity and experimentation in the kitchen.

 

You may be wondering why on earth you would whip up a batch of gazpacho during these colder months. Consuming gazpacho somewhat regularly can be quite beneficial to your health. No matter what ingredients you choose to include, gazpacho contains beneficial nutrients like carotenoids, antioxidants, vitamins A, C, & E, fiber, and a variety of other minerals. The antioxidants and carotenoids from the brightly colored vegetables, which are typically added to gazpacho, tend to delver a lot of anti-inflammatory agents to the body.

 

A Quick Note: For those who have arthritis, it may be beneficial to make gazpacho recipes that are not always tomato-based. While classic gazpachos are tomato-based, too much acidity from the tomatoes can activate arthritis symptoms. Additionally, if you have allergies to nightshades (bell peppers, tomatoes, eggplants, potatoes, or paprika), make sure to make your own nightshade-free take on some of the following recipes.

 

An Easy Breezy Gazpacho:

This is a classic cold soup that is bursting with flavor. You’ll be surprised how much you actually like this. If you feel like getting spicy, add some more red pepper flakes, which actually helps to warm you up.

Garden Fresh Gazpacho:

This is truly a garden fresh raw soup! Gazpacho is a great way to change up your raw food game. Leave it blending for a little while longer to warm up. That’s a secret trick for added warmth to have in your back pocket.

Spicy Mango Ginger Gazpacho:

Even though this soup is cold, the flavors help you feel warm. It is definitely different from what you are used to eating, but you should give it a shot because it is vibrant and will give your taste buds some intense flavors.

4 Easy Ways To Use Persimmons Before They’re Out Of Season https://www.dherbs.com/articles/4-easy-ways-to-use-persimmons-this-fall/ https://www.dherbs.com/articles/4-easy-ways-to-use-persimmons-this-fall/#comments Tue, 04 Dec 2018 17:45:52 +0000 https://www.dherbs.com/?p=73057 If you buy produce items to be adventurous but don't actually use them, this is the article for you. Eat these persimmon recipes this fall!

Persimmons hit the produce section of grocery stores and join other fall fruits and vegetables at farmer’s markets during the October and November months. They are small orange fruits that have a mildly sweet and spicy taste. Always remember this: Fuyu persimmons are the sweetest and those are the ones you should opt for when buying persimmons.

 

Rich in vitamins A & C and compounds known as shibuol and betulinic acid, persimmons have been known to have anti-cancer properties. In fact, persimmons have been associated with combating breast cancer cells without harming normal breast cells. Is that a coincidence since persimmons arrive every October, which is National Breast Cancer Month? We think not! Persimmons are also rich in B-complex vitamins, which help to stabilize the metabolic system.

 

If you have been wondering how to use the persimmons you buy, we have the inspiration you need. Check out these recipes to get your fall flavors on!

 

Persimmon Smoothie:

Ingredients:

  • 2 persimmons, peeled and quartered
  • 1 apple, cored
  • 2 cups spinach
  • 1 teaspoon freshly grated ginger
  • 1/2 cup ice

Instructions:

  • Place all of the ingredients in a blender and blend until you get a smooth consistency. If you want it thicker, use a little more ice.

 

Fall Harvest Salad:

Ingredients:

  • 4 cups arugula
  • 1 small butternut squash, peeled and cubed
  • 2 delicata squash, peeld and thinly sliced
  • 2 persimmons, diced or cut into wedges
  • ½ cup pomegranate seeds
  • 2 gala apples, diced
  • 1 shallot, diced
  • 3 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
  • 5 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil

Instructions:

  • Preheat your oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit and grease a baking sheet with 1 teaspoon of olive oil. Drizzle a little olive oil on the squash and season with a little sea salt and pepper. Scatter the squash across the baking sheet and roast for 20 minutes (or until tender).
  • Remove the squash from the oven and let cool for 10 minutes. Combine the squash, arugula, persimmons, apples, and pomegranate seeds in a salad bowl.
  • In a glass jar, add the shallot, balsamic vinegar, and olive oil and shake it up. Drizzle on the salad and enjoy.

 

Persimmon Ice Cream:

Ingredients:

  • 2 ripe Fuyu or Hachiya persimmons, frozen overnight
  • ½ cup organic coconut milk

Instructions:

  • Before you freeze your persimmons, make sure you peel them, cut them up, and remove the seeds if they have them. When you are ready to make the ice cream, blend the frozen persimmons with the coconut milk. Depending on how you like your ice cream, you can add half of a frozen or fresh banana to get your desired consistency.

 

Persimmon Fruit Leather:

Ingredients:

  • 1 ripe banana
  • 2 Fuyu persimmons
  • 1/3 cup raw sesame seeds
  • 2 tablespoons flaxseeds
  • ½ teaspoon sea salt

Instructions:

  • In a blender, blend the bananas with the persimmons and sea salt. Once that is pureed, add the flaxseeds and blend a little longer. Spread this mixture onto dehydrator sheets so that it is only about ¼” thick. Place the sheets in a dehydrator at 110 degrees Fahrenheit and dehydrate for about 3-5 hours. Tear or roll these sheets into desired pieces and refrigerate in airtight containers.

The holidays are right around the corner, which means that holiday cookie platters are expected, or delivered to you if you know the right people. We were inspired to make a bunch of cookies for the holidays and they are absolutely some of the best vegan cookies we’ve ever had. These cookies don’t have all the typical bad ingredients that lead to weight gain, which is awesome! And it’s no coincidence that today (December 4th) is National Cookie Day!

 

You can thank the Dutch for the word “cookie,” which is derived from the Danish word koekie, little cake. Cookies in America have a much shorter history, having arrived here in the 17th century. Macaroons and gingerbread cookies were very popular (and still are), but Americans have definitely upped their cookie game over the past 400 years.

 

Most people use so many unhealthy ingredients to make cookies, or worse, they buy processed, chemical-rich store bought dough. You can make your own with simple ingredients that are not bad for your health. This helps you enjoy cookies guilt-free! Make some of these awesome cookie varieties this season. You won’t believe how tasty they are.

 

3-Ingredient Vegan Almond Butter Cookies:

While these aren’t your regular cookies, they sure do taste delicious. They are so easy to make because there are only 3 ingredients! Make them for friends and family this holiday season.

A Beginner’s Guide To Healthy Meal Prep https://www.dherbs.com/articles/a-beginners-guide-to-healthy-meal-prep/ https://www.dherbs.com/articles/a-beginners-guide-to-healthy-meal-prep/#comments Fri, 30 Nov 2018 11:25:52 +0000 https://www.dherbs.com/?p=88592 In this article you will find tips, suggestions, and the easiest way to start meal prepping. You may be surprised at how easy it is!

People on social media and food blog writers continually promote the concept of meal prep to maintain healthier diets. Not only is meal prepping incredibly easy, but it also makes eating healthy convenient and fun. The problem that most people have, however, is that they don’t know how to prep healthy meals. They think it is a daunting task that involves hours and hours of prep. That’s a false notion and we are going to illustrate how to prep clean and healthy meals.

 

What Is Clean Eating?

If you don’t know how to eat cleanly, don’t beat yourself up. Put down the burger and lettuce explain (that was a little clean eating pun to start you off). It’s important to clarify that clean eating is more than looking at labels that say “heart-healthy” or “fat-free.” Major food manufacturers mislead consumers with these terms and people end up buying “healthy foods” that are not healthy at all. To eat healthily, follow the tips below.

 

Avoid Artificial Ingredients:

Artificial means fake, and you shouldn’t eat fake food when so much real food is available. You can identify artificial ingredients by looking for terms like “artificial flavors” or “artificial colors” or artificial sweeteners. Don’t eat foods with artificial anything! They aren’t healthy!

 

Don’t Eat Processed Foods:

Processed foods and artificial flavors go hand in hand because most processed foods contain artificial ingredients. Besides having little to no nutrition, processed foods contain an array of chemicals and preservatives that extend the shelf life. Do your best to avoid foods with shelf lives.

 

Don’t Forget Fruits And Veggies:

Omitting fruits and vegetables from your diet is mistakes one, two, and three on your path to a healthier body. When it comes to meal prepping, you must include fruits and vegetables in your recipes. They should be your first priority! It is also imperative that you eat the rainbow to obtain different nutrients.

 

Count Your Nutrients, Not Calories:

We aren’t saying that you should ignore your caloric intake; rather, we are saying that you should focus on getting your calories from nutritious foods. The calories you get from a hotdog are not equivalent to the calories and nutrients you get from a home-cooked meal that consists of vegetables, whole grains, and legumes.

 

To set yourself up for meal prep success, it is integral to prepare you favorite healthy options in bulk. Don’t be intimidated by preparing a lot of food at once. It is actually a great way to save money, save time, and save yourself from eating unhealthy food!

 

You Don’t Have To Cook Everything:

Most people overcook food, especially when it comes to vegetables. High heat kills a large percentage of the nutrients, which is why it can be beneficial to prepare a few raw meals like salads or smoothies. You can make smoothie bags or divide a large salad into several containers for a couple lunches during the week.

 

Knock It Out In One Day:

It is best to meal prep for the week the same day that you head to the grocery store to buy all your food. Your ideas about meals are fresh in your mind, which makes the preparation aspect fun and exciting. Make sure to do this on the weekend, or whatever days you have off, because you’ll need free time.

 

Change Up The Standards:

You don’t want to make the same salad more than twice. You have to alternate flavors in order to keep you interested in the food. Make a southwestern dressing and add chickpeas, which have been sautéed in taco spices, to the salad with pickled onions, cilantro, and salsa. Instead of doing fried rice, blend some cauliflower and use that as the rice base. Add diced vegetables, sesame oil, liquid aminos, and other seasonings to the pan and enjoy! Check our recipe section for more information.

 

Pick Your Meals:

You can use recipes that you’ve created or find healthy recipes online. The important thing is to choose two or three recipes that have a healthy balance of vegetables, protein, whole grains, and healthy fats. If you want to dive in headfirst and wing it, include at least one item from each column of the following table.

 

Proteins Vegetables Fats Grains
Green vegetables Broccoli Olive oil Barley
Tempeh Salad greens (arugula, red leaf, spinach, kale) Avocado Quinoa (not technically a grain)
Wild Caught Fish Zucchini Nuts Wild rice
Lentils Tomato Seeds Buckwheat
Chia Seeds Sweet Potato Macadamia nut oil Bulgur wheat

 

Don’t forget that you need to get solid containers for your prepped meals. Glass containers are best! You can choose containers that have divided areas, but that is up to you. If you have any meal prep questions, let us know in the comments.

While these get labeled as the “hipster cups,” Mason jars have been around for many generations. They have been used to preserve fruits/vegetables or to pickle different food items. People still use them to preserve foods, but they also use them as dressing containers, smoothie vessels, meal prep containers, or water cups.

 

One of the coolest parts about preserving food is that you can have the different flavors of summer in winter or vice versa. The game changed for food preservation when John Landis Mason made a patent, which was an improvement in screwneck bottles, known as the Mason jar. Home canning became much more sanitary and safe from harmful bacteria. This invention helped gardeners stock their pantries and preserve their harvested crops to sell in their communities.

 

In case you are wondering what to do for National Mason Jar Day, we have some awesome ideas. If you enjoy fermented foods, check out the video in the article about how to start fermenting your own vegetables. It’s a lot easier than you think!

 

How To Build A Mason Jar Salad:

Raw Rainbow Mason Jar Salad:

DIY Fermented Vegetables:

Ginger Hair Spray For Healthy Hair Growth https://www.dherbs.com/articles/ginger-hair-spray-for-healthy-hair-growth/ https://www.dherbs.com/articles/ginger-hair-spray-for-healthy-hair-growth/#comments Thu, 29 Nov 2018 21:01:40 +0000 https://www.dherbs.com/?p=88588 If you’ve been looking for a natural spray to reduce dandruff and promote hair growth, this ginger hair spray exactly what you need.

Dandruff, hair breakage, and stunted hair growth are more common than people realize. Growing hair doesn’t happen overnight, but it can happen, so long as you take the right measures. In order to rejuvenate your hair and achieve luscious locks, you can rely on several natural ingredients that can boost the hair growth process.

 

We continually advocate the powerful healing properties of ginger root, and we won’t stop! Ginger has been used to soothe an upset stomach, relieve sore throat, and calm nausea, but a little known fact is that ginger’s health properties can help promote hair growth. It doesn’t give you Rapunzel locks overnight, but adding the ginger spray (in this article) to your hair care routine would be advantageous.

 

Ginger For Dandruff:

Most people who lose their hair also experience dandruff. The reason for this is due to the fact that dead skin cells clog the hair follicles, and that leads to dandruff, which inhibits hair growth.

 

Ginger For Blood Flow:

Because the active ingredients in ginger work to relax blood vessels, people who consume ginger can experience improved blood flow. Hair follicles need sufficient blood flow in order to receive proper nourishment, which promotes healthier hair.

 

Ginger For Hair Loss:

While gingerol is a potent ingredient in ginger, it also contains other beneficial nutrients that work to prevent hair loss. The magnesium, phosphorus, potassium, and other antioxidants in ginger help to strengthen and nourish hair follicles, which can help fight against hair loss.

 

Ingredients For Hair Spray:

  • 1 cup filtered water
  • 2 tablespoons fresh ginger juice
  • 5 drops rosemary essential oil

Instructions:

  • Add all of the ingredients to a spray bottle and shake well.
  • Spray a generous layer on you scalp and massage it in. Spray this on your hair and scalp two hours before you intend to wash your hair.
  • Use this spray once a week.

  • ½ cup steel cut oats
  • 1 cup unsweetened almond milk
  • ½ teaspoon alcohol-free vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice

Instructions:

  • Combine the oats and almond milk in a saucepan over medium-high heat. Stir every few minutes and slowly mix in the vanilla extract and pumpkin pie spice so that everything is thoroughly combined. Serve in a bowl and enjoy. If you’re craving extra pumpkin, add a little homemade pumpkin puree to your oatmeal.

 

Pumpkin-Spiced Dip:

This may sound odd, but dip some apples or pears in this and you’ll be in healthy dessert heaven.

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup homemade pumpkin puree
  • ½ cup plain organic Greek yogurt
  • 1 teaspoon alcohol-free vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice

The cashew is a beloved snacking nut that can be used in many different ways. Wait a second, though; we can’t go on without clarifying one thing. Cashews are actually seeds harvested from cashew trees, which are native to northeastern Brazil. They grow inside a shell (nut), but cannot be distributed in the shell because of an inedible fluid that grows inside it. With the growth in popularity, cashew trees are now grown in many tropical climates.

 

Fun Fact: The largest cashew tree in the world is located in Natal, Rio Grande do Norte, Brazil, and covers about 81,000 square feet!

 

Cashews are great sources of protein and energy, and they actually cause fewer allergic reactions than other nuts. They are rich in manganese, copper, magnesium, and phosphorus, all of which are essential trace minerals.

 

Fun Fact: The cashew tree has a fruit called the cashew apple. A lot of people in Latin American countries make a drink from this fruit.

 

To help you celebrate National Cashew Day, we have a few awesome recipes for you to try. They are super easy to make, but you’ll need a good blender or a food processor.

This raw recipe takes a little longer because you salt the zucchini noodles in order for the water to drain out. This helps them absorb the flavors of the sauce, and it adds a little extra texture to the noodles.
