Amazing Wellness - - EDITOR’S NOTE ANN NIX -

gift bas­kets are typ­i­cally stu ed with an as­sort­ment of hick­ory-smoked sausages and im­ported cheeses, hot mus­tards and chut­neys, gourmet crackers, and bot­tles of wine. It’s easy to make a call or a few clicks on­line and have some bas­kets de­liv­ered. And it’s al­ways a plea­sure to re­ceive them, al­though per­haps not al­ways the best for our waist­lines or health.

is year, con­sider giv­ing more health-minded (and more thought­ful) gift bas­kets. In “DIY Recipe Kits” on p. 90, you’ll nd ideas for gift bas­kets that are su­per easy to throw to­gether, in­clud­ing shop­ping lists and clip-able recipes. Each bas­ket in­cludes the mak­ings for a hol­i­day-in­spired treat made with superfood in­gre­di­ents. We’ve done all the prep work for you. All you have to do is ll your bas­kets with the good­ies listed and tuck in the cor­re­spond­ing recipe. (Or, if you’re feel­ing more am­bi­tious, you can ac­tu­ally make one or two of these recipes to hand out as gifts!) e Ca­cao Nib Al­mond Cook­ies on our cover is one of them—so festive and se­ri­ously yummy. (Let’s just say they didn’t last long in our o ces.)

Even eas­ier, check out our an­nual gift guide, “Good-for-You Gifts” on p. 68, where you’re sure to nd some­thing for ev­ery­one on your list. ese gifts say, “I care about you and I’m look­ing out for your health and well-be­ing.” Well, not in so many words, but you get the idea.
