We've tried plenty of items that promise to enrich our lives, then fall short, leaving us with immediate buyer's remorse... but we can assure you that the 10 items we've listed below do not disappoint! If you're looking for items that will make it easier than ever to make healthy choices this week, get your credit card ready, because you're going to want to order these bad boys ASAP.
1. Wireless Bluetooth Headphones That Don't Get Tangled Up When You Exercise
These wireless headphones connect to your phone or MP3 player via Bluetooth, and the battery life is a whopping eight hours after they've been fully charged. They boast a comfortable, secure, waterproof design, so they can stand up to the elements no matter how often you're running or working out with them in. They're noise cancelling, too, so you can tune out the person running on the treadmill next to you.
With more than 15,000 reviews and a 4.3-star rating, we were convinced. We added these suckers to our cart without a second thought!
2. A Portable, Single-Serving Blender to Get In Your Daily Servings of Fruits & Veggies
That's why we were ecstatic to find this (incredibly inexpensive) single-serving, portable blender. All you do is add your items, blend, and then drink your smoothie straight from the blender container itself! Quick, convenient, and delicious. After we saw that this fella had hundreds of rave reviews and a 4.6-star rating, we were sold.
3. An Alkaline Water Filtration System to Purify Your Body
As Gumbo explains it, "Alkaline water filtration systems utilize key minerals to help your body function as efficiently as possible. Many other filtration systems make water more acidic than regular tap water, which can hurt your digestion more than it helps. Santevia’s line of products give you balanced, clean alkaline water that aids in digestion, improves natural immunity, and assists your body in maintaining its natural pH balance." This pitcher is a great place to start, if you're interested! You can get it online using the link above, or stop by Gumbo the next time you're in Plaza Midwood.

5. Pre-Made, Paleo, Organic, Ready-in-3-Minutes Meals Delivered Straight to Your Door

You don't have to worry about what you're going to make for dinner, or on buying the right healthy foods at the farmer's market, or on cooking those foods before they go bad.
