Atkins Stocking Stuffers

December 17, 2014

Are you wracking your brain for great gift ideas for your friends and family? Here’s a list of health-oriented, low-carb-friendly stocking stuffers for almost anyone in your life.

Go for gadgets. Fitness trackers from Fitbit and Jawbone can track daily steps, sleep habits and heart rate. Perfect for the active person in your life.
Get cooking. My cookbook, The New Atkins for a New You Cookbook, features 200 delicious low-carb recipes that can be made in 30 minutes of less.

There’s an app for that. Download the free Atkins mobile app for your friends and family. The app will help them plan meals, count carbs, track progress and pick low-carb meal options when eating out.

The gift of water. Portable water bottles make great stocking stuffers.

Music to your ears. A pair of earbuds makes music easy to listen to.

More music. An iTunes gift card lets your friends and family download the latest tunes to motivate them doing exercise sessions and apps that may help them track their fitness and more.

Pack it up. Tupperware and cooler lunch bags let your friends and family pack and transport plenty of low-carb meals and snacks, making it easy to stay on track with Atkins.

Treat a sweet tooth. Atkins Endulge… these chocolate candies, milk chocolate squares, peanut butter cups and more are acceptable on all Phases, and they will make any stocking a little sweeter.

Exercise tools. Portable resistance bands or workout DVDs means your gift recipients can squeeze a workout in anywhere.

Cooking tools. There are plenty of fun gadgets that make low-carb cooking a breeze, including kitchen scales, blenders and spirulizers (for making low-carb vegetable “noodles” for pasta dishes).
