The Gift That Keeps on Giving, Your Health (Part I)


December 2, 2011 by Living Girl Living Foods

For some people this is their favorite time of the years, lots of holidays, giving & sharing, being thankful, bright lights, Christmas music and of course gifts.

Last year I asked for a spiral slicer, and am still thankful for this gift. I’ve made many different dishes, chips and so on with this tool. This year my list isn’t as simple, I am asking for Kyocera ceramic knives.

It looks like I may be moving around the summertime and I’m trying to plan ahead with what I’ll need for my new home. I’ve been geeking for a Blendtec blender; it’s far too expensive to ask for as a gift. So that’s something I’ve been saving up for on my own plus putting my name in on their monthly blender giveaways.

So what does my wish list look like this holiday?

Kyocera Revolution 3 1/7″ Paring Knife (In red, my favorite shade too!)

4.5″ Utility Knife & Vertical Vegetable Peeler (In red 😉 )

Steel Knife Sharpener

Kyocera Adjustable grinder

Pyrex measuring cup and storage containers

Kyocera Revolution Series 5-1/2-Inch Santoku Knife (Red)

Kyocera Revolution Series 6″ Vegetable Cleaver

AND some noncooking related things of course such as yoga classes 😀

Ceramic knives are fantastic knives; they slow down the oxidizing process of vegetables and never ever rust. They are impervious to acids, oils, and other substances. Perfect for people like myself to use lots of veggies and oils in their foods 🙂

Today I felt adventurous and wanted to make a new wrap sandwich. I ended up making a carrot red pepper hummus, jicama tabouli, sprouts in a collard green as the wrap.

The hummus was made out of carrot pulp from juicing, sprouted garbanzo beans, red pepper, tahini, water, ginger, garlic, and cayenne.

Jicama tabouli is just jicama, parsley, cherry tomatoes, cucumber, flax oil, and garlic.

Here is what I had for lunch!


Tonight I am going out with my best friend for dinner and most likely grabbing dessert too 🙂 We are going to Garden Grille and probably getting dessert at Wildflour. I can’t wait! I don’t mind being the man on this date 😉

Tomorrow I’m hoping to make part II of this post! I’ll post a list of great gift ideas for foodies and health conscious people. Have a lovely afternoon everyone!

  1. Hey 🙂 Those look like great knives. So, since they are ceramic, they can use the metal sharpener? Pretty sure Blendtec is going to send you a free blender in the mail because you are so persistent on winning! P.S. the first link to the pairing knife link is broken. I can’t wait to see you tonight!

  2. Thank you Kristine! Pretty cool about the sharpener, huh? Just fixed the link, thank you dear. See you in a few minutes, woooo!!
