Last Minute Holiday Goodies

I am a list maker, and taker, in this case.  I collect them all – from “Top Ten Kitchen Gadgets” to “the Most Romantic Beach Destinations” (which, of course, is a constant research project.)  Since most of the work has already been done, I thought you might enjoy some of these suggestions when crossing your list and checking it twice, or trying to avoid shopping hangovers.

Here’s a great list of gifts for the foodie in your life (ahem, Jay, please note) – with a sustainable bent.

Kimi at the Nourishing Gourmet offers green gift ideas and is an overall fabulous blog to subscribe to (free.)

Linda Prout is a fellow nutritionist and acclaimed author who takes a no-nonsense approach to celebrating the Season. There are some great tips to avoid toxic-overload.

For a list of the “Worst Holiday Foods You Could Eat,” Health Magazine nails it.  They take it a step further by adding the “Top Overrated Foods of 2009“  I was particularly dismayed to see the Pepperidge Farm Goldfish there.

And going beyond the holidays, Yahoo shares a list of foods that even the experts won’t eat. Please print and take with you.  It’s a keeper.

What experts (and smart people like you) DO eat are grass-fed beef and heirloom beans.  Long Meadow Ranch and Rancho Gordo are two local favorites who will ship throughout the U.S.

I’d love to know some of your favorite holiday gift items and tips this time of year!
