As the temperature drops and the sun sets earlier, our family starts gearing up for Christmas. We light candles, cozy up on the couch more, and start making our wish lists for Santa.
Predictably, my list reflects my love for health and wellness. As a nearly obsessive health nut, I get giddy over kitchen gadgets and workout gear.
This year, I’ve gathered all of my favorite things that have made healthy living easy and enjoyable in our home. Add these 16 items to your healthy holiday wish list this year!
This ultra-thin treadmill can slip under your desk. Set the speed low. You’ll forget it’s there. But what you will notice is a boost in energy, alertness, concentration, and productivity throughout the work day. And, after a few weeks, you’ll have to bump down a size in your work pants.
Have you been fantasizing about Fitbits? Few of us have $300 of spare change lying around that we can toss at a watch. Enter this Amazon find. One little watch will track your heart rate, blood oxygen, stress levels, sleep, and menstrual cycle. Right now, it’s only $39.
Cookware is the cornerstone of your kitchen. This 10-piece non-toxic set is durable, affordable, and safe for your long-term health. The set is made with hard anodized aluminum and healthy nonstick ceramic and is free of PFAS, PFOAs, lead, and cadmium. They’re even safe in the oven up to 600 degrees.
While we’re on the green theme, it’s time to pitch your plastic containers. Storing and reheating food in plastic leaches trace amounts of chemicals into your food. Glass containers perfectly preserve the freshness of your food while keeping it safe to reheat and eat. This affordable set makes meal prep much easier.
Speedy weeknight dinners wouldn’t be possible without this trusty veggie tool. I can dice onions, cut sweet potato fries, spiralize zucchini, and slice cucumbers in seconds. When you’re done, toss it on the top shelf of the dishwasher. You’ll love this time-saving tool.
Of course, this is already on your wish list, right? I was crushing on CREAMis for months before they were restocked on Amazon. This viral tool makes velvety ice cream out of healthy ingredients.
Snuggle up on the sofa with a stack of new reads. This list is full of the hottest health-focused books. From my favorite cookbooks to self-help classics, like Automic Habits, you’ll find all the motivation you need for 2024.
Understanding your body composition is one of the first, most important steps you must take if your goal is weight loss or management. Chuck your simple scale! Looking at just your overall weight on the regular can do more harm than good. Here’s your replacement. This single tool measures 17 body composition metrics, including body fat percentage, visceral fat, muscle mass, and bone density.
Our bodies burn fat when our insulin levels drop. Today, we can tap into our body’s fat-burning mode by tracking our blood sugar, an easy trick thanks to CGMs. This small device sits on your arm and tracks your glucose levels all day, and in real-time. With it, you can spot patterns and trends by observing real-time glucose responses to food, stress, exercise, sleeping habits, and other daily activities.
Want to get a head start on blood sugar balance? These are the best supplements on the market for the job. These two supplements are designed to boost the benefits of intermittent fasting.

Electrolytes make a huge impact on the way my clients feel throughout the day, especially while fasting. But most powders contain sweeteners that could impact your blood sugar levels—which means your fast is over! Ultima is different. The small amount of organic stevia used to sweeten this delicious product won’t raise your blood sugar levels!
Pre-workouts are designed to provide you with the energy, focus, and endurance you need to get to the gym, build lean muscle mass, and burn more calories. They can promote muscle growth, increase fat burning, and boost your metabolism. But not all pre-workouts are alike. This is my go-to—it’s free of additives, fillers, and unnecessary ingredients.
This chocolate shake mix is keto-friendly, low in sugar, and vegan. But it’s packed with 20 grams of protein and 23 vitamins and minerals! You won’t find any artificial colors, flavors, or sweeteners, dairy, soy, or corn syrup on the list. This is the cleanest way to build lean muscle.
