5 Great Gifts for a College Caveman

Happy Holidays to you from us! We hope that you have a wonderful holiday season and a great break from school! We just wanted to check in and give you a chance to maybe get some awesome holiday gifts from your parents! You can show them this list, or you could even go out and buy some of these for your family and see if they will give this awesome lifestyle a try! Here are 5 great gifts for any college caveman or cavewoman!

1. CrockPot


This is an awesome tool (especially for a low-budget college caveman!), as you can pop some food in the pot in the morning, and by the time you come back for lunch or dinner, your food is ready! This is great for a college student especially because cooking with a slow cooker can be far more cost effective than eating out during the week as well as healthier than whatever mystery meat is being offered in the dining hall.  Here are some great crock-pot-approved recipes to get you started:

Simply Sesame Beef
Roasted Red Pepper Sweet Potato Soup
Pine Nut Meatballs with Assorted Vegetables
Fresh Cranberry Sauce (**Holiday Special**)
Asian Marinated Beef Spare Ribs
Smokey Beef Chuck Roast

2. Vitamixvitamix

If you’re willing to shell out some cash on this one, your caveman friend will never stop thanking you. These blenders are truly one of a kind, arguably the best on the market. With all of the smoothies and blended items that are made weekly, this is a perfect gift for you Primal friend.

3. Barefoot Shoes




Nothing like getting a box of toe shoes for the holidays! Going barefoot is becoming more and more popular (and fashionable!), so grab a sweet pair of Vibram FiveFinger toe shoes or Vivobarefoot shoes, or whatever other brand you want, and gift them to your Paleo buddies looking to walk like a caveman.

4. Paleo Books/Movies

There are a ton of must reads for the new Paleo person as well as those who already have considerable knowledge on the topic. Here’s a list of our top 10 favorite books and movies that are MUST HAVES for the holiday season:

  • Books:
    1. goocalbadcalGood Calories, Bad Calories

About The Author


As a recent recent high school graduate, I've seen a lot of kids struggling with health and fitness over my years in school. I went Primal when my physical trainer helped me really focus on my physical well-being in training for my baseball career. I credit a large percentage of my health and well being on and off the baseball field to my Primal lifestyle. An idea came to the my mind to create a website where kids going into college could find great information on health and nutrition as well as functional fitness. I am extremely excited to be able to write about health in the college world, as a lot of times kids forget how to eat healthy when they go off to the college world. While we saw this as an opportunity to reach out to the college world, we also wanted this site to be a resource for people of all ages struggling with their health as a place for them to go and find great resources and information.

    Crock pots are AMAZING! Nothing is better then coming home to the smell of rich, flavorful meat. Crock pot chicken is the best kind of chicken. The fat melts out of the meat and makes its own broth.
