11 Gifts To Give Your Health-Obsessed Foodie Friend

He bathes himself in hummus, drinks kale juice all day and you love him anyway.

Everybody's got that friend -- the one that bathes himself in hummus, grows kale in the backyard of his Brooklyn apartment, claims that drinking a fermented tea makes him feel spiritual and is constantly nibbling on some kind of unidentifiable rabbit food.

This holiday season, instead of mocking said friend for his "unique" eating habits, why not support him for the quirky trait with a gift that shows you care? These 11 presents below are sure to make any tree-hugging, superfood-swearing herbivore explode with happiness. Who knows, maybe you'll even get a homemade dinner out of it.

Veggie Spiralizer
You may not know what zoodling is, but your health-fanatic friend most certainly knows about the transformation of vegetables into ribbons of spaghetti-shaped delight. The Paderno World Cuisine (pictured) is one of our favorites because it has multiple blades that switch up the thickness of the zoodles. You can zoodle just about anything, and the receiver of this gift will be thrilled to give it a whirl.

Vitamix Blender
The Vitamix is no measly stocking stuffer -- it's a lavish blender (ever seen those two words together?) that can really do it all.

But for the healthy gal or guy in your life who seemingly has it all, this will be the gift of all gifts. It can make nut butter. And almond milk. Even flour. To be gifted with the Vitamix is to be gifted with endless culinary possibility.
