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!
First of all, what's ghee? It's clarified butter. What's that mean? It means that the lactose has been removed so that it's dairy-free! Other great things about ghee
- It has a high smoke point, so it's safe to use at temperatures above 375F (unlike olive oil)
- It's rich in MCTs (medium chain triglycerides) these are fats that help our bodies burn more fat!
- It's buttery and delicious tasting
- Fourth & Heart brand is grass-fed
You can order it on Amazon by using the links below for my favorite products:
- Chocolate Ghee (I have a cookie recipe that uses this on instagram)
- Vanilla ghee (I use this for my cinnamon bun cauliflower)
- Himalyan pink sea salt (I use this on all my veggies)
- California garlic (great on veggies and protein as well)
- Truffle (no explanation needed... TRUFFLE!)
- Ghee oil (great for pouring and cooking)
I love that this Sprout Living pumpkin seed protein has literally ONE ingredient. Pumpkin seeds! No "natural flavors", or sweetener of any kind! It's also perfect for anyone trying to follow a vegan, paleo or Whole 30 diet. It's totally organic and each serving has 19 grams of protein and it is a source of all of the amino acids (building blocks of protein). Some vegetarian proteins aren't a complete source, but this Sprout Living protein is!

I LOVE Better Body Body Foods powdered peanut butter (PB Fit). It's great for adding into recipes like my peanut butter cookie hummus (recipe will be in my plant-based cookbook) or just mixing with water for a high protein peanut butter spread on just about anything. I add it to smoothies too. Better Body Foods uses clean ingredients and tastes great. You can get yours here and save money with code PRESSSTART at checkout!
Cauliflower crust is definitely having a moment. However, not all cauliflower pizza crusts are created equal. I LOVE Califlour (it's made in California and doesn't contain flour, get it) because it contains only 4 SIMPLE ingredients (a lot of other brands contain many more processed ingredients) and it is SO easy to prepare, tastes great, and has the least carbohydrates of any brand out there (see comparison below). I'm not sponsored by Califlour, just obsessed! Here is a link to order your own. Use code PRESS10 for 10% off!
Pearl Butter coconut butter (hello healthy fats) contains adaptogens (hello balanced mood and hormones) and collagen (hello skin, hair, bones and gut health) so it's truly a SUPER food! Each different color is not only beautiful, and makes eating feel like a day in the art gallery, but has different benefits! You can save 20% on your own with code PRESS20! Go here to get yours!
First of all, why use a probiotic period? Long story short, they help nurture the "good bacteria" in our gut and kill off the "bad bacteria". This helps manage digestion, metabolism, immune system, mood, energy levels, glycemic control and more! My favorite is Silver Fern. You can use code PRESSSTART at checkout to save money on your own! You can also get it on Amazon HERE.
Now, why use Silver Fern Brand? Not all probiotics are created equal. The reason I love and trust Silver Fern Brand is because they are DNA verified for survivability! This sounds super fancy and confusing but I'll explain what it means. Many probiotic supplements are actually dead on the shelf (or will die soon) and this actually has no benefit to us so we end up paying a bunch of money for no benefit. Silver Fern uses 3rd party testing to guarantee 100% survivability of their strains, meaning it WILL have an impact on your body. Additionally, 90% of probiotics contain bacterial strains not listed on the bottle. If the brand is not DNA verified, they can do this, and this means, we have no idea what we are getting. Finally, Silver Fern uses powerful, multifunctional bacterial strains. It doesn't necessarily use MORE different strains since more isn't always better. Since these strains are DNA tested, they are actually effective. A lot of other brands use more different strains that are not DNA tested and this can a gimmick to get the consumer to think they are getting a better product.
Silver Fern also makes multivitamins and more. This brand is quality and you can use my discount PRESSSTART on anything from them!
I LOVE my Healthy Human Life stein for keeping cool liquids cold and hot liquids hot! It's the best for reducing waste and avoiding unhealthy plastics that contain things like BPAs. It's also great for "on the go". You can get 10% off your own on Amazon by clicking this link & using code PRESSN10 at checkout.
This grain-free & paleo-friendly flour is made from a root vegetable (think potatoes) so it contains no grains! I love it for its health benefits & baking texture. I put it into donuts, waffles, cookies, and even use it for making "air-fried" vegetables! My favorite brand is Otto's Cassava Flour & you can get your own here on their website OR on Amazon HERE. You can find a bunch of recipes that use it on my recipes page.
Why use Collagen?
Collagen peptides are a natural part of the human body comprising about 70% of human skin. Collagen peptides also make up parts of hair, bone matrix and joints. However, after age 21, the body’s natural collagen production begins to slow. For this reason, it's important to supplement our natural production of collagen peptides. I LOVE Further Food's collagen options because it is clean, grass-fed collagen, is tasteless and mixes into ANYTHING.
What is collagen?
Collagen peptides are a mix of specific peptides of different length with a high abundance of certain amino acids. Different peptides can provide different health benefits – everything from nutricosmetic purposes to increasing athletic ability. Collagen can increase skin elasticity, reduce cellulite, improve gut health and digestion, strengthen bones and joints, has anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidant properties, stabilizes blood sugar and controls appetite, to name a few.

As you all know, one of my main recommendations for a healthy diet and lots of energy, is to spread your protein consumption through out the day. Because of the way our body absorbs protein, this helps us maximize absorption. Which is why it's SO important to have a good, clean protein powder that is easy on the tummy and the taste buds. I recommend Nuzest!
