  1. Himalayan salt cooking slab

Say hello to the new and improved method of barbecuing! Himalayan salt cooking slabs are a healthier alternative to your standard grill, with the ability to cook meats, seafood, and even vegetables.

Not only do these cooking slabs ensure your food is perfectly seasoned and packed with flavour, but they actually allow all of the nutrients and minerals found in Himalayan salt to be transferred into your food. Plus, the surface of the slab is naturally antimicrobial, so you don’t have to worry about germs or bacteria. Talk about a win-win situation!

Good for: meat-lovers and health conscious grillers!

  1. 8-in-1 Raw Vegetable spiralizer

Now the chef in your family can perfectly spiralize veggies such as zucchini and carrots for a healthy plate of “pasta” that will impress even the fussiest, pickiest eaters (especially the kiddies)!

With this 8-in-1 raw vegetable slicer, you can also make perfect bowls of curly fries, salads, toppings and exciting shapes of fruit for the kids – they will have no choice but to dig in, just with a simple turn of the handle. Plus, they are easy to assemble and clean, along with saving you hours of prep time usually spent slicing and dicing.  

Good for: No-carb dieters, time-poor parents, fussy kids, the healthy hostess and pasta lovers!

  1. Dehydrator

Have you heard about this unique new cooking method? Dehydrators can be used to dry and preserve hundreds of different foods, from sundried tomatoes to zucchini chips – the possibilities are endless.

But it’s not just about getting creative. There are some serious health benefits associated with dehydrating foods too. The dehydrating process means that nearly 100% of the nutritional content of the food is retained, and inhibits the growth of unwanted bacteria. It basically helps you create preserved foods that still have all of their nutritional goodness!

Good for: healthy snackers, creative chefs, family fun.

  1.  Cold-pressed juicer

If you walk into any trendy cafe these days, you’ll notice that cold-pressed juices are rising in popularity – and for good reason. The method of cold-pressing fruits and vegetables means the end result contains more vitamins, minerals and enzymes than traditional juicing.

Now you can create healthier juices easily in the comfort of your own home, with a cold-pressed juicer that does the work for you!

Traditional juicers that rely on spinning blades means that the fruit and vegetables can be overheated and oxidised, losing some of their vital nutrients in the process. The method of pressing juice has the opposite effect, with more nutrients being retained.

Good for: young chefs, vegetarians, fruit lovers.

We hope these tips make finding the perfect gift for the healthy chef in your family a breeze! After all, any gift that promotes a happier, healthier life is definitely a good thing.
