Today I’m breaking down my top food finds and gifts any foodie at heart would LOVE this holiday! Let’s get started:
2. JJ’s Sea Salt Cocomels – These vegan caramels are made with coconut milk and maybe 3 other simple ingredients. Call me obsessed…I may or may not have cleaned off a package of these in 2 days.
3. Vitamix 7500 – The holy grail of all kitchen appliances, in my opinion. The Vitamix really does it all and I find myself using it in the kitchen several times a day. Definitely a must have for all foodies.
4. Where’s the Food Tank – WTF! But really, where’s the food?
5. Forest Feast Cookbook – It’s not only visually appealing, but the recipes are incredibly delicious and super easy to make.
6. Duna by Cutipol Copper Salad Servers – Copper everything, please.
7. KitchenAid Professional Stand Mixer – I wasn’t lying when I said copper everything. A KitchenAid stand mixer is definitely next on my must-have kitchen appliance list. This guy is a bit of a splurge, but they last forever.
8. Le Creuset Signature French Oven – If I were to start a collection – it would be to collect Le Creuset pieces. I’d definitely start with the Signature French Oven, perfect for baking bread, cooking stews & soups and roasting just about everything.
10. Sriracha Kaffir Lime Rub – Quite obsessed with sriracha lately. Try this delicious rub on any of your favorite proteins or veggies for tons of flavor.
12. Walnut Rolling Pin – Any baker is sure to love this beauty in their kitchen, almost too pretty to use.
13. Wusthof Classic Knife – Everyone should own a good chef’s knife and I look no further than Wusthof Knives. They’re probably some of the best knives I’ve ever used – they always stay sharp and again, last a lifetime.
I hope you all enjoyed this gift guide as much as I enjoyed putting it together! What are your favorite foodie gifts for 2014 that I missed? Share your picks below! Stay tuned tomorrow for a special holiday guide including my favorite store, West Elm!

Today I’m bringing you all a variation of my famous Turmeric Milk, which I call famous for good reason. My Turmeric Milk has taken international storm and I LOVE how much you’ve all been enjoying it for a boost in antioxidants and anti-inflammatory benefits all while tasting delicious. Today, using similar concepts behind Turmeric Milk, is a lighter more refreshing version I call Turmeric Tea. It’s a simple herbal tea made with water, aromatic and warming spices, honey, and of course the star ingredient turmeric. The flavor is slightly sweet, earthy, with a hint of spice and even though I enjoy this year round, I find it even more enjoyable in the cooler months of the year.

Today I’m sharing a delightful interview with someone who I find completely inspiring, Amy Chaplin author of At Home in the Whole Food Kitchen. To most of you, Amy doesn’t need an introduction for her incredible work, but for those of you who do- Amy is the creator of one of my new favorite whole food cookbooks, At Home in the Whole Food Kitchen where she shares her favorite whole food recipes out of her kitchen, her favorite pantry items, and ways of living. I jumped at the chance to make her Spicy Chickpea Stew and Quinoa Pilaf with Golden Raisins and Almonds, which was absolutely delicious and the full recipe is found in her book. Amy’s style and passion is completely in line with the Nutrition Stripped lifestyle, I hope you all find this interview, her cookbook, and her words on career, living whole and well, favorite quotes, and more as inspiring as I do!
