Healthy, Happy Gift Giving

The best gift you can give is good health… for their sake and yours. Instead of calorie- and fat-laden restaurant meals, desserts, or candy, create a memorable day:

Head to the local farmer’s market and collect the bounty for a beautiful, flavorful fruit basket. It’s a great way to show your love — for their palate and arteries.

Find a cookbook that features healthy meals. Before you wrap it, select a couple recipes, bring the ingredients, and prepare a tasty, nutritious meal.

If you can’t resist a sweet treat as a gift, opt for quality dark chocolates filled with other natural antioxidants such as nuts, fruits, and spices. A small portion of premium chocolate is more enjoyable — and healthful — than a jumbo assortment of mixed chocolates.
