Healthy Gifts for Mother's Day
Since sharing food is a way to show caring and love, opt for a food gift this year. Whether your mom is a foodie or if she avoids the kitchen, there is a food gift every mom is sure to enjoy.
Celebrate Mother's Day with these nutritious food gifts:
- Bake a gift - Prepare a batch of her favorite treats and give to her with a handwritten note. Try using whole grain flour or Greek yogurt in place of sour cream for a healthier treat. Taking time to bake is a way to show you care.
- Meals in a jar - Help with future baking and cooking by preparing various mixes in canning jars. Decorate each jar with a card reminding her how much you love and appreciate her. Whole grain flours and beans are a good start to a hearty and nutritious mix. Here are a few healthier jar mix recipes: https://www.ahealthiermichigan.org/2017/12/07/diy-healthy-holiday-mason-jar-gifts/
- Gift Basket - Handpick her favorites, place in a basket, and decorate with a bow. From wine and chocolate to snack foods and treats, surprise her by showing you notice what she enjoys!
- Herb garden - If she enjoys cooking, plant seeds to grow an herb garden. The herbs are a beautiful addition to any kitchen and can then be used in cooking to add flavor in place of salt.
