Evolutionary Gift Guide

2017 is coming to a close and it’s a good time to take note of who we are and where we choose to direct our futures.  The political turmoil, natural disasters and other struggles we’ve experienced this year may not necessarily subside in 2018, but in unison, we grow stronger and more resilient.  How will you show gratitude to those you’ve leaned on in your life this holiday?  (By the way, did you know that the simple act of expressing gratitude is scientifically proven to improve physical and psychological health and sleep)? 

This is a busy time, so we'll keep it short and sweet, but wanted to leave you with a few (very) last minute transformative gift ideas that will redefine your own or your loved ones’ life experience. 

Have a wonderful holiday friends!

This is the ultimate evolutionary experience.  Over the next 6 months, this program will profoundly improve your health, physically transform, nourish yourself, sleep better, find a deeper sense of peace and contentment, calm the inner chatter in your mind, learn and implement new daily routines so you can be stronger and healthier. You will also experience much less stress and have powerful tools to deal with the stress when it does appear…and inevitably, it will.  For more information, send us an email,
Have you ever made a New Year’s Resolution involving eating healthier, working out more or prioritizing sleep, only to fall back to your usual less than optimal habits a month later?  You are not the only one.  The reason is, changing deeply ingrained behaviors is really hard.  Here is where a well-trained health coach can help.  A health coach can help discover what personally motivates you and work with you to determine goals, develop strategies for change and provide accountability and support.  Help a loved one (or yourself) successfully stick to a health goal/resolution this year and gift them a Deep Health Evolution 6-month Health Coach program with Fatima.  For more details, send us an email,
For wrappable gifts, here are some other ideas.

We personally have a couple of these Molekule air purifiers in our home.  They are beautiful, and unlike HEPA filters, they not only trap dust, mold and other airborne nasties, but also destroy them.  Use our link for a $50 discount.

The Instant Pot simplifies home cooked meals.  It is a work horse.  This model can perform 10 functions, from pressure cooking to slow cooking and even yogurt making.  Add an elegant, heartfelt touch and include the bone broth recipe below on a handwritten note card.


2 stalks celery roughly chopped
2 carrots roughly chopped
1 onion cut into large chunks
5 cloves garlic smashed
3.5-4 lbs grass-fed beef bones (preferably knuckle bones and joints)
1 pastured pig’s foot (optional, but is a great source of additional collagen)
2 bay leaves
2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
Kosher Salt
Filtered Water


Place all vegetables into the Instant Pot.  Add the bones and the foot, if using.
Drop in the bay leaves, add the vinegar and sprinkle with salt.
Cover the contents with water, but make sure the pot is not more then two-thirds full.
Cover and lock the lid and set to high pressure.
Set the timer for 2 hours and let the pressure release naturally.
Strain the liquid, discard the solids and place in the fridge overnight. This is simply to let the fat rise to the top and solidify. It makes it a lot easier to skim the fat off the top.
Drink the broth alone or add to recipes.

Our favorite way to enjoy bone broth is blended with a little grass-fed butter, turmeric, cumin, sea salt and freshly ground black pepper.
