      27 Gifts for Healthy Foodies (Under $50)

      If you have a healthy foodie friend or family member, it may be difficult to figure out what to get them for a birthday or holiday. Here are my top recommendations for gifts for healthy foodies. 

      Gifts for Healthy Foodies: Snacks

      These chocolate bars are organic, vegan and contain no refined sugar. They taste amazing and can be a better option compared to conventional chocolate bars. Plus, chocolate is always a great gift. Cost: $26.00 for a 4 pack

      #4: Hippeas Organic Chickpea Puffs, Variety Pack

      If your foodie friend or family member loves crunchy, salty snacks, you need to get them these chickpea puffs. They are similar to Cheetos, but are made with chickpeas. They are super fun and make for a great stocking stuffer. Cost: $22.59 for an 18 pack

      #5: That’s it. Apple + Pear Real Fruit Bar

      I love these because each bar contains three grams of fiber and zero grams of added sugar. That’s because they are made with fruit instead of fruit juice or refined sugar. They make for a great fruit roll up alternative. Cost: $19.99 for a 12 pack
