Ok, I may have a slight obsession with Thrive Market. You will not find better prices on select pantry staples, such as almond butter, olive oil, ghee, baking soda, and more! They also carry herbal supplements and superfoods from some of my favorite brands, including Sun Potion, Navitas, and Four Sigmatic, just to name a few. Best part, every paid membership to Thrive Market is matched with a free one for a family in need.
MY FAVE PLANT-BASED PROTEIN POWDER
The #1 question I receive is “what protein powders do you use in your smoothies?” I’ve tried my fair share over the years and nothing compares to Truvani’s Plant-Based Protein Powders. These protein powders are vegan, certified USDA organic, non-GMO, and made with 6 or less pure ingredients. No artificial sweeteners. No preservatives. No unnecessary additives. And they actually taste delicious, too! Seriously, try the Vanilla or Chocolate for yourself. You will not be disappointed!
Kitchen tools + gadgets
Get ready to make my favorite smoothie recipes by purchasing a high-quality, high-speed blender! I purchased a Vitamix nearly a decade ago and have used it multiple times a day ever since. I make everything from smoothies to soups, nut milks to nut butters, and more. It was worth every penny! Shop my top high-speed blender picks by clicking the link below.
Minimize your exposure to PFAS chemicals, including Teflon and cheap metals commonly found in non-stick cookware by investing in cast iron, stainless steel, or ceramic cookware instead.
Shop by favorite eco-friendly kitchen tools and gadgets!
The first question I receive whenever I share a juice recipe is, “what juicer do you use?” My hubby bought me a Kuvings Slow Juicer for my birthday a few years ago and I love it! It’s easy to use and clean (so important) and works great (doesn’t heat the juice and leaves the pulp super dry). There are lots of great juicers on the market these days.
