As a board-certified practitioner in holistic nutrition and certified nutrition consultant with a Master of Science degree in Health and Nutrition Education, I am here to serve my clients in their whole health and well-being any way I can.
And I get asked all the time for recommendations . . . everything from recipes to supplements to restaurants to specific products. And by nature, I LOVE giving helpful suggestions! (I’m one of those people that strangers will walk up to and ask me for a recommendation!)
So this post is a long time coming! I’m here to share some of my FAVORITE things with you!
Full disclosure: For a few of these items, I do receive a very small amount of compensation if you use my link. I’ve marked these with an asterisk (*) so you know. Feel free to find these things on your own as well! 🙂 My intent is to put great things on your radar!
A FEW OF MY FAVORITE THINGS:
Beautycounter is a line of SAFE and CLEAN skincare, bath/body, and makeup beauty products that are free from harmful chemicals that wreak havoc on our bodies. There are more than 80,000 chemicals on the market today & many don’t have any safety data! Why would I put that on my body??!! I love Beautycounter because it is a company that I can trust is using only the safest ingredients, is against animal testing, AND works and feels GREAT! Message me for ideas of where to start!
DoTerra is a fantastic collection of pure essential oils. Why do I choose DoTerra? High quality, beautiful blends that not only smell great but past my testing standards! Some of my favorites include Serenity for a lovely calming blend, Deep Blue to apply to tired and achy muscles and joints, Cheer roller for anytime pick-me-up, ClaryCalm roller for hormonal support during your period, and the whole OnGuard line for quality immune support and daily, safe cleaning! Want to know more? Let’s talk!
Dry Farm Wines curates only the highest quality natural wines from small, sustainable, organic /biodynamic, family farms that meet their strict standard of health and taste! Unlike today’s commercialized and processed wines–which are full of additives, sugar, pesticides and other harmful ingredients–Dry Farm wines are sugar-free, lower alcohol, lower sulfites, paleo and keto friendly, and free of industrial additives–this is real and delicious wine!
Sun Basket is meal-kit that delivers fresh, pre-measured ingredients with easy-to-follow, delicious recipes directly to your door in an insulated box. Great options from gluten-free, paleo, low-carb, vegetarian, and dairy-free to family-friendly or “speedy” meals. I’ve tried a few kits and this remains my favorite in terms of quality!
Nutritionally designed meals you’ll crave, delivered to your door! Each week their chefs create a delicious new menu packed with the highest quality ingredients. Choose from plant-based or add meat. All of Thistle’s meals are gluten and dairy-free and they use organic produce whenever possible. I’ve had 30+meals from them over the last few years (all paid for by me) and I’ve enjoyed every salad and dinner I’ve received! So many veggies and delicious sauces!
Methodology’s motto is “food as medicine.” Great options of whole-food, paleo-friendly, nourishing meals designed with your wellness and tastebuds in mind. Free of gluten, refined sugar, canola oil, vegetable oil, corn, legumes, chemicals, preservatives, or processed ingredients. Plus, foods comes in reusable glass jars!!
Roasted, ground, and brewed just like coffee, Crio Bru has the amazing flavor and aroma of pure dark chocolate (without the sugar!). Plus all the benefits of cacao–a superfood prized by ancient cultures for its energizing and restorative properties. Crio Bru also has theobromine, a naturally occurring stimulant found in cacao that can be longer lasting, milder, and more pleasant than caffeine. How I start my morning every day!
