Dana White Nutrition has partnered up with Uncommon Goods to highlight some healthy and sustainable gift ideas. This Brooklyn-based company prides themselves on featuring tons of products made in the USA. Plus about 1/3 of their collection incorporates recycled and or upcycled materials. A big thanks to Uncommon Goods for providing me with some goodies to play with — here are just a few of my favorite things.
Flavors of America Salt
A collection of US purveyed salts featuring flavors like Maine Apple Wood Smoked and California Vintage Merlot. The Hawaiian Citrus was a perfect finishing touch on this recipe for Crunchy Rosemary Chickpeas
Manhattan Rooftop Honey Flight
I am amazed by the versatility of this natural sweetener and love that these varieties are cultivated in nearby New York City.
The Popcorn Bowl with Kernel Sifter
We make a lot of popcorn in my house – a healthy snack for parents and kids alike. This bowl prevents the little ones from gobbling (the unavoidable) unpopped pieces. To make homemade popcorn place ¼ of kernels in a brown paper lunch bag and fold over the top twice to close. Microwave on high for approximately 2 minutes. Pour into a large bowl and top with melted butter and season with salt.
Cold Brew Coffee Maker
Amazing coffee and zero electricity required. This is the perfect gift for my hubby who drinks iced coffee 365 days a year. Don’t waste the leftovers – make my Coffee Cure Smoothie.

Define Water Bottle (pictured above)
Is drinking more water one of your new year’s resolutions? This stylish bottle was created by a teenager looking for a way to enjoy his mom’s flavored water creations while on the go (a guy after my own heart). Just add fresh ingredients to the bottom compartment and allow the flavors to infuse. Some of my favorite seasonal combinations are mint & cucumber, clementine & grapefruit, and kiwi.
