Share the gift of year-round health with mom.

This Sunday we will be celebrating all of the incredible women across the world who work tirelessly day and night under the honorable title of “Mom.” Her health and happiness means everything to us, so what better gift to give than nourishment to keep her feeling wonderful for years to come? As a busy woman-on-the-go myself, I’d like to share a few of my fave products and reads that keep me feeling my best, even on my most hectic days.

While you can’t order these to arrive in time for the special day, you can include a printout of what you picked that’s on its way, or order for a “just because” gift down the road. These choices are top notch for year-round health and make superb gifts for any occasion.

BHU Foods Primal Protein Bars. If there are two things all moms have in common, it’s that they’re busy and they need energy to keep up with their busy lives! These yummy bars can be easily packed in almost any size bag. Even better, they’re loaded with all of the good stuff—like organic prebiotic fiber and grass-fed whey protein. They’re also GMO- and gluten-free and contain only Certified Palm Oil. Munching on these between appointments gives me to the go I need to get through a jam-packed day.

Epic All Natural Meat Bar. An interesting (and tasty) twist on classic protein bars, this option contains 100% organic and grass-fed buffalo. Each bite will provide her with omega-3s, CLA, vitamin B12, vitamin E, and amazing antioxidants. Plus, there’s no added sugar and they’re gluten-free. What’s not to love? These are fantastic for that mom who is so busy that she finds herself forgetting or feeling as if she’s too busy to eat.

R. W. Garcia 3 Seed Kale Crackers. When mom has a craving for a crunch, these kale crackers will give her exactly what she’s looking for. This alternative to the not-so-healthy traditional cracker are free of GMOs, trans fat, and cholesterol. Mom can pack them in a bag or keep them in her car when a snack attack hits in the midst of her busy day. Plus, she’ll think of you each time she reaches for a bite.

Evolution Fresh Smooth Greens Juice Blend. Traditional unpasteurized juices carry a higher risk of becoming contaminated with unwanted microorganisms (like bacteria and yeast) and there have even been cases of mass recalls due to E.Coli. The cold-pressed variety are created when high pressure—instead of heat—is applied to raw juice and then promptly sealed. Mom will love their fresh taste that many believe also have cleansing and detoxing properties. Plus, the United States Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service requires all manufacturers to implement a verifiable program that puts a stamp of approval on the juice’s safety. Only the best for the woman who does it all.

The Original Zoodle Slicer. We know mom needs her daily veggies for optimum health. Make it fun and easy with a vegetable spiralizer. This handy tool turns veggies into thin spirals for nourishing alternatives to mom’s favorite pasta dishes. Include a “gift certificate” that she can redeem for her own personal chef (you!) to come over and prepare a healthy dinner, and you have the perfect gift!

Vegetable Chopper, Dicer, Slicer, Cutter. As any mom knows, it’s amazing how long it can take to chop up fruits and veggies for the fam. Constructed with food grade material, this easy to use product will save her a ton of time—leaving more to spend with the people she loves. She’ll love chopping, popping it in the dishwasher, and settling in for some much deserved rest and relaxation.

The Encyclopedia of Bach Flower Therapy. These therapies have been tried-and-true go-tos of mine for many years. Mom will feel as if she can take on anything thrown her way with the most comprehensive reference of Bach flower therapy in print. Developed over 60 years ago by an English physician named Edward Bach, these 38 distilled flower essences lend a safe, natural, and effective way to heal and deal with life’s stresses by promoting a mental state of calm and happiness. This gift is truly one of peace of mind.
