I absolutely love spicy food and especially adding hot sauce for a kick and flavor! Unfortunately, a lot of hot sauces on the market contain a lot of not so great ingredients. Yellowbird is an exception. Their ingredients are all 100% REAL food, and each of their flavors offers a unique but delicious twist! You can buy your own here.
I love Svelte organic protein drinks for so many reasons. First of all they’re a super convenient and filling snack for anyone who is busy or on the go. Second, I love mixing them into coffee and tea (so yummy) and also using them for baking (check out my instagram for a chai-spiced banana bread). Third, I love the company’s dedication to quality and how they only use organic ingredients that will make you feel good inside and out!

For those who don’t know, tahini is sesame seed butter. It tastes fantastic, is nut-free for those allergic and has tons of protein. I use it dressings, baked goods, freezer fudge, slaws and so much more. My absolute favorite brand is Soom because it’s organic, a company run by women, and so delicious.

Most people know that dairy milk can be highly inflammatory, our lactase enzyme (that gives us the ability to properly digest lactose, the sugar in milk) diminishes incrementally each year after we are 2 years old. Even if you do digest dairy well, dairy milk can be full of hormones and antibiotics and has the most sugar of any dairy product, without the beneficial fermentation properties that come with yogurt or kefir.
A great alternative to dairy milk is nut, seed or oat milk. However, many store-bought versions contain gums and lecithins and artificial sweeteners, all of which can be just as inflammatory as dairy! Even those labeled as "health food products" at the grocery store usually contain multiple processed ingredients, take a look next time and you'll see. This is why I've started making my own non-dairy milk. Also, it's way cheaper than buying it at the store plus you can be CREATIVE! I love mixing different nuts, adding a date for natural sugar, or adding coconut or vanilla extract and yummy spices like cinnamon and cardamom!
The Almond Cow machine makes it SO easy to make your own non-dairy milk. It takes about 1 minute total and cleanup takes about 30 seconds. I have tried making my own non-dairy milk with the traditional bag method. However, in all honesty, it was way too time consuming and I therefore did not do it on a regular basis and resorted to highly processed store-bought almond milk. The Almond Cow has been a real GAME CHANGER for me and will really help me detox my life in a delicious and simple way!

Plant milk has become a part of my weekly meal prep! See below:
Medicinal mushrooms have been used to heal and aid the body since ancient times in Chinese medicine. They are finally getting some recognition in the modern diet. There are so many types, each with different properties. Medicinal mushrooms can help with everything from improving stamina in workouts, improving focus, improving blood sugar regulation, helping with calming and relaxation, anti-tumor & anti-aging properties, libido and so much more! My favorite brand is "Real Mushrooms" since they use 100% organic medicinal mushrooms and use a special extraction process that guarantees viability PLUS they do not use any grain fillers like some other brands.

I am not always the biggest fan of packaged protein bars since a lot of them are candy bars in disguise. However, Health Warrior bars are different. They contain all my keys to a good snack:

I love BIOHM since it was started by scientists who truly understand digestive health! It turns out, good bacteria is only part of the story. Your gut contains both bacteria and fungi. However, ordinary probiotics only address bacteria, ignoring fungi's role in digestive balance. BIOHM,combines good bacteria + good fungi + digestive enzymes, BIOHM helps maintain the balance of bacteria AND fungi in your gut, all while breaking down digestive plaque.

I love Safe Catch tuna for so many reasons. It's pure sustainably, wild caught, fish, no additives or fillers. Plus, they mercury test every single batch so you know what you are eating is safe. They pack pure, raw tuna so that it does not lose flavor and health benefits (like omega 3s and other nutrients) during the packing process. They also have tons of cool varieties like ahi tuna and salmon!

It can be really hard to find quality meat at a lot of grocery stores. It can also be hard to know what to look for. For this reason, I LOVE Butcher Box! It delivers the best quality pork, chicken and/or beef right to your doorstep. You can pick which meats you want and you know they are all antibiotic and hormone free and flash frozen at the peak of freshness. The chicken is all organic, the beef is grass-finished (important difference from grass-fed) and the pork is all heritage bread. I love the convenience factor and the quality can't be beat!

This sounds totally crazy and weird like what is green banana flour?! However, this GRAIN-FREE flour (also gluten free) has TONS of health benefits from the resistant starch! Resistant starch is a kind of carbohydrate that RESISTS digestion in our small intestine so it has less calories per gram (3 calories per gram instead of regular carbohydrates, which, have 4) AND it helps feed our gut microflora! This means it helps our digestion and helps our good bacteria grow! Green bananas are a great source of resistant starch (RS) so why not bake with it!?

Everything is better in waffle form ;) Waffles are one of my favorite things to make for brunch on the weekend, make a double batch, and freeze for easy but delicious breakfasts during the week! You can find my two favorite waffle recipes here - fluffiest ever sweet potato waffles, grain-free (zucchini) banana waffles. I highly suggest you get a waffle maker so you can make some yourself!
Here is the link to Amazon for the waffle maker I have. It also doubles as a pancake pan and grill pan (like a George Foreman).
Here is the link for a slightly simpler version also from Cuisinart.
Here is a the link to the mini waffle maker I also use.
I love the powdered almond butter that PB&Me makes for anyone with a peanut allergy or who is maintaining a legume free diet (whole 30/paleo). Personally, I mix it into smoothies, use it as a spread on it's own (it's great with veggies dipped in or on toast) or bake with it! I love this brand's no sugar added almond and peanut butter.
You can order it on Amazon here.

I am OBSESSED with veggie noodles. There are so many kinds you can do and you can have them with really every meal. My latest obsession is veggie noodle egg nests for breakfast. See below for my favorite spiralizers for veggie noodles.
- Kitchenaid Spirlizer Attachment - this is what I personally have and use a few times a week. Bonus: It's SO easy to clean since there are only two tiny pieces you need to clean.
- Basic Spiralizer - this works great if you don't have a kitchenaid. I had one of these for about 5 years with no issues. It actually saves a bunch of money rather than buying pre-spiralized veggies.
I love that Zing bars are packed with protein and made by Registered Dietitians (nutritionists) and have tons of yummy flavors! You can use this LINK to order your own and it automatically takes 10% off!
I love using cooking spray to get an EVEN coating of healthy fats on my food when cooking! I use it for everything from lining pans and muffin tins, to getting my veggies coated up before I put them in my air-fryer to cooking meatballs. See below for my favorites, you can order them from Amazon Prime using these links :)
- Avocado oil spray - great at any heat (unlike olive oil) heart healthy monounsaturated fat
- Coconut oil spray - I use this mostly for baking and when I am doing something like cinnamon squash or sweet potatoes
- This BUNDLE of all 3 oils is amazing! - coconut, avocado and ghee!
- Avocado Mayonnaise - this is whole 30 approved and really clean mayonnaise!
First of all, Georgia has a special place in my heart since I went to undergrad at Emory University in Atlanta. Go ATL! Also, Georgia Grinders makes amazing tasting nut butters with only good clean ingredients. They also have an entire Whole 30 Approved line, which, is great to take the confusion out for anyone trying to follow Whole 30.

For any of you that follow my social media, you know that obsessed is an understatement for how I feel about my air-fryer. I pretty much only eat air-fried vegetables these days. And why not? It's totally healthy and tastes like French fries! Amazon has a great air-fryer called Simple Chef. You can buy one here!
