6 gifts for clean living

By UrbanRemedy

Here’s Neka’s list of top six must-haves for the health nut in your life – or to add to your own wishlist.

  1.  Vitamix blender
    Vitamix blender is a bit of a splurge but worth the investment because it lets you easily and quickly make nut milks, smoothies, and blended soups at home. Saves time and money.
  2. Cold-press juicer
    Owning a juicer puts the power of phytonutrients at your fingertips, allowing you to make your own fresh juices at home. Neka recommends a cold-press juicer because they are designed to slowly and gently squeeze the maximum amount of nutrients from each ingredient. They cost more than centrifugal juicers, but because they work slowly and efficiently to extract the most nutrients and do not heat the juice, they preserve vitamins, enzymes, and trace minerals. Cold-pressed juices can be refrigerated for up to 72 hours without losing any nutrient content. Neka likes Hurom’s cold-press juicers.
  3. Water filter
    Drinking and cooking with filtered water gives your body a break from chemicals, fluoride (a neurotoxin), and other additives in most drinking water. A deluxe sink filter like this APEC is a good choice, or, for a more affordable option, choose a pitcher filtration system that can be stored in the refrigerator.
  4. A spiral vegetable slicer
    A spiral vegetable slicer is a great way to make your favorite pasta dishes in a low carb way. Make zucchini, daikon, or celery root noodles. Neka uses a countertop version like this one by WonderVeg.
  5. Dry-skin brush
    A dry-skin brush is an easy way to detox and have smooth healthy skin. Neka likes these natural bristle brushes by Wholesome Beauty.
  6. A journal. Writing in a journal daily can help you set your intentions, focus on your goals, take inventory of all that you’re grateful for, and sort out emotions. Neka loves Michael Rogers’s Decomposition Books because they come in a variety of beautiful designs and are simple, affordable, and made from 100% post-consumer recycled waste.
