The holidays are without a doubt the most expensive time of the year. After all, this is the time when we traditionally send gifts to our loved ones to show them how much we care. After you buy gifts for your children, spouse, and close family, it can be hard to even think about buying gifts for anyone else. It’s no wonder Christmas is such a stressful time for so many people.
The good news is that you can find a way to share a bit of healthy living with your friends while showing them how much you care. When most people think of giving food for the holidays, they envision the Christmas sponge cake that has been the butt of so many Christmas jokes. But holiday food gifts are much more than the dreaded sponge cake. When you make food gifts for your loved ones, you are not only saving on expenses, you are also making them something that you are putting some time into. It only takes 5 minutes to order a gift online, but making something shows that you put effort and thought into your gift.
If you are trying to find the perfect paleo food gifts for your loved options include:
Paleo Bundt Cake – bundt cake is not only delicious, but it is also filling. If you are giving a gift to a couple or family, then a bundt cake can make the perfect dessert for them. Other easy paleo cakes include chocolate cake, sponge cake, and carrot cake.
Paleo Ginger Bread Cookie – let’s be honest, you can’t think about Christmas without thinking about gingerbread cookies. What better gift to give your friends than this wonderful Christmas tradition? And when you use a paleo gingerbread recipe, you are giving your loved ones the gift of a Christmas tradition while sharing your healthy lifestyle with them. One of the best things about making cookies as a holiday gift is that you can cook a lot of them at once. Unlike cakes where you have to bake them one at a time, you can cook many cookies at once. This is great because it means that you can make all of your food gifts in less than a day. Of course, if gingerbread cookies don’t work for you, there are many other paleo cookie recipes to choose from. Simply grab some Christmas cookie molds and start baking.
Spiced nuts – nuts are not only paleo, they are also a great Christmas tradition. When you give your friends a batch of homemade spiced nuts, they might not realize that you are actually giving them a healthy gift that tastes delicious. There are plenty of spiced nut recipes online and once you find the one that suits you, all it takes is combining those ingredients with coconut oil to create a snack, your friends will love.
When you prepare food as a Christmas gift, you are showing that person that you care about them enough to put that extra time and effort into making something special for them.
