In my practice, I often get asked by clients for product recommendations, and I do a ton of research to make sure I feel good about the quality of the products I use and recommend. Below is a list of all the products and brands I recommend based on my personal experience. You’ll find personal care products, snacks, protein powders, supplements, and kitchen gadgets - everything I use to cook, eat, sleep, and live healthy.
Heads up: Some of the links below may be affiliate links. You don’t need to use my links, but if you do, the price is the same for you and it goes a long way to help me keep this site running. Thank you so much for your support!
Collagen is a complete source of protein and is so helpful for healing the gut, as well as contributing to healthy hair, skin, and nails. It’s tasteless and dissolves in any liquid so it’s easy to put in smoothies, coffee, tea, or even soups.
Gelatin has similar health benefits to collagen, but unlike collagen, it gels, so it can be used in any number of yummy treats as a thickener.
This product has the same health benefits as traditional collagen peptides, but it has a deliciously rich chocolate taste. I put a scoop in my tea every morning.
MCT oil is typically derived from coconuts and it’s a quick source of energy for your brain and body. I put this in smoothies and other beverages to help with cognition, hormone balance, and improved digestion.
This is my go-to protein powder partially because of how good it tastes and partially because of how good it is for you. Derived from pasture-raised beef, it has a similar nutritional profile as a steak and only has a few ingredients. I usually have this 3-4 times per week after a workout.
I always recommend getting nutrients from whole foods when possible, but sometimes you need a boost, like when you’re traveling or on the go and having a green juice isn’t realistic. I love this product because it has all the green things plus digestive enzymes to help your body break it all down.
I can’t say enough good things about bone broth. It’s incredibly healing to the gut, can help your body properly detoxify, and support your immune system. This brand sources the highest quality ingredients and has a few delicious varieties.
This product has similar benefits as Epic, but it’s shelf stable, which is convenient for those of us with crowded fridges and freezers (guilty!).
I don’t eat a lot of energy bars, but when I do, I look for something with relatively few ingredients, all of which I can pronounce. These definitely fit the bill and are a lifesaver on road trips or long flights.
Depending on where you live, there’s a good chance you’re deficient in vitamin D, especially during the winter months. I love this liquid supplement because it also has vitamin K2, which is important for vitamin D absorption, and it also tastes minty and delicious!
It’s incredibly common to be deficient in one or more minerals since our topsoil is depleted, our food is less nutritious, and we’re more stressed out. These drops are an easy way to get those missing trace minerals back into your diet.
Sounds super bizarre, but organ meats are one of the most nutrient-dense things you can eat. Especially because they contain vitamin K2, which is hard to find in other parts of the western diet. That being said, I have a hard time making myself eat them, which is why I love this product so much. It’s a blend of high-quality organ meats in easy-to-swallow capsules, so I get all the benefits without the weird taste.
This is some of the highest-quality cod liver oil you can get. It provides health-promoting omega-3s in their natural triglyceride form, and abounds in the natural vitamin A and D, which tend to be lacking in our western diets.
Calcium is vitally important for bone, teeth, and heart health. Calcium supplements are controversial because there's some concern they can have a negative impact on heart health - but this supplement solves that problem. It's made solely from pasture-fed bones, so it doesn't carry any of the same risks as a synthetic supplement. If you don't eat much dairy, or need extra bone + teeth support, this supplement can be super helpful.
Getting good sleep is imperative for good health and one way I do that is by wearing an eye mask. It’s super helpful if your bedroom isn’t pitch black, and it’s a lifesaver when you’re traveling.
I literally can’t sleep without earplugs. Unless you live on a mountaintop, it’s likely that you have some kind of noise pollution interrupting your sleep. These earplugs are the best I’ve found to tune it all out.
Getting sunlight in your eyes (specifically in the morning) is important for making sure you sleep soundly at night. But if you live somewhere where that’s not possible (e.g. Seattle or the U.K. in the winter), these glasses are a useful solution. They flood your eyes with blue/green light that simulates sunlight and I wear them for 20-30 min every morning in the fall and winter.
While it’s important to get bright light in your eyes in the morning, you definitely don’t want it in the evening or it can disrupt sleep. Wearing these an hour or two before bed can help block blue light from screens and artificial light, and make it easier to drift off the sleep.
Epsom salt baths are one of my go-tos for good sleep. They’re rich in magnesium and super relaxing. I like to mix these salts with Dead Sea salt in my bath for extra minerals.
I’ve been using this toothpaste for about 2 years, and I’ll never go back to the regular stuff. It’s all natural, helps remineralize the enamel on your teeth, and it will make your teeth feel cleaner than they ever have.
Conventional mouthwash actually kills the good bacteria we need in our mouths, plus it’s usually full of weird colors and dyes. This mouthwash is made with food-grade hydrogen peroxide, organic aloe, and organic essential oils - that’s it. It freshens breath, whitens teeth, and helps with tooth sensitivity.
You can use this soap for almost anything (cleaning the house, dishes, hair, etc), but I typically use it as body wash. I love the different scents and that it’s completely natural.
I love how soft this natural shave gel makes my skin feel, plus the lemongrass smells amazing!
I absolutely love this brand and this cream is rich and moisturizing but doesn’t leave your face feeling greasy.
I have been obsessed with facial oils lately and have seen a huge difference in my skin since I started using them. This one is chock full of antioxidants that help fight wrinkles from things like sea buckthorn berry, blueberry, and Goji berries.
Cleansing your face with oil instead of fash wash is a great way to keep your skin hydrated and soft. This brand is my absolute favorite and I love they have several formulations depending on your skin type.
When I don’t use an oil cleanser, this is my go-to face wash. It’s soft on sensitive skin and has an amazing light natural lavender scent.
Your skin absorbs a lot of what you put on it and most lotions have multiple ingredients you’re better off skipping. That’s why I love using this as a moisturizer - it’s thick, incredibly hydrating for the skin, and only has one ingredient.
After years of unsuccessfully trying one natural deodorant after the other, I finally found one that works. It’s totally natural, unscented, and has saved me from many potentially sweaty/embarrassing situations.
Wearing a natural sunscreen is really important to me, and zinc oxide is one of the few that isn’t bad for you. But it always seems to leave you covered in a thick white paste that won’t rub in. This is the first clear zinc sunscreen I’ve found, and I’m never going back.
If you haven’t made the switch from tampons over to a menstrual cup, do yourself a favor and try it. It’s so much more convenient, easy, environmentally-friendly, and makes your period an overall easier experience.
This cleanser is great because it’s all natural and can be used to clean your menstrual cup, but also doubles as a body wash.
This underwear has been a lifesaver. I’m honestly shocked it took someone so long to invent it. If you get a period, get this underwear, you won’t regret it.
This tea is super helpful for menstrual support. It contains raspberry and strawberry leaf with nettle and other complementary herbs to ease the difficulties typically associated with periods. I’ve noticed fewer PMS symptoms and lighter periods since I began drinking this tea.
I don’t like taking tylenol or advil because they do a number on your stomach, so when my cramps get particularly bad, this natural blend of herbs and nutrients is the most helpful thing I’ve found.
I love using this as my everyday salt instead of regular table salt, which is bleached and has been stripped of pretty much all nutrition. It’s unrefined, contains a ton of beneficial minerals, and is delicious.
I love how flaky and crunchy this salt is! It’s great for sprinkling on top of things when you want a salty crunch (salted brownies anyone?)
This is my other go-to salt. It has similar health benefits to sea salt, but it comes from the Himalayan Mountains instead of a sea and has a different combination of healthful minerals.
Sea vegetables are one of the best ways to get important minerals like iodine into our diets. This delicious crunchy topping of seaweed and sesame seeds is great on stir fries, veggies, and seafood!
Ghee is hands-down my favorite fat to cook with. It’s butter that’s had the dairy solids strained out, so it has a higher smoke point and is easier to tolerate for some people who don’t do well with dairy. Oh, and it’s super delicious!
Coconut oil is another staple in my house, and it’s important to make sure you get a good-quality brand. I personally like the taste and quality of this one and I love that it’s fair trade.
This tasty sauce is made from coconut sap, and it’s completely gluten and soy free, so it’s a perfect substitute for soy sauce or tamari if you don’t eat either of those ingredients.
This is one of the only store bought mayonnaises that I will eat or recommend to clients. It’s the first avocado oil-based mayo (instead of using soy or canola oil) and it’s absolutely delicious.
This blend of lavender, rosemary, and thyme is so fragrant and perfect on seafood, chicken, and veggies.
I sprinkle this liberally on pretty much anything where I want to add a little extra Italian flair - tomato sauces, roasted veggies, or anything with noodles.
I love this brand because all of their spices are organic, incredibly high-quality, and flavorful. The meat and potatoes blend makes literally anything taste better.
Nettle tea is one of my favorites. It’s high in minerals, especially calcium and magnesium, and it’s a natural antihistamine and can be helpful for people with allergies.
This is my go-to tea any time I’m sick and feeling stuffy. It’s cozy, comforting, and always clears me right up.
Licorice tea is another tea I drink often, as well as recommend to many clients. It’s incredibly soothing to the digestive tract and it can help our bodies cope with stress.
Great if you’re feeling stressed out or anxious, or a little run down, and need some extra support.
I love this tea first and foremost because it’s delicious. But also because dandelion root is great for liver and detox support.
This tea is great because it’s got the spicy, warming chai spices you’re used to, without the caffeine of black tea. Rooibos tea is an herbal tea with great antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties.
This tea is a delicious blend of Ayurvedic herbs traditionally used to hydrate the skin's tissues.
Medicinal mushrooms have amazing health benefits and I love incorporating them into my everyday life. This blend of matcha green tea and lion’s mane mushroom provide brain support, memory, and creative benefits.
Lion’s Mane mushroom has incredible cognitive benefits. I have a cup of this elixir every on mornings when I’m working on big projects and want to supercharge my brain.
Reishi mushroom helps support the immune system, protect against cancer, and heart disease. It’s also super relaxing, and I have a cup of this almost every evening before bed.
Chaga mushroom has many benefits, including powerful immune support. I always load up on this before I fly to make sure I don’t get sick.
These silicone lids are amazing. They help replace wasteful foil and plastic wrap, and they create an airtight seal on whatever dish you use them on. Perfect for keeping food fresh, and they come in round and rectangle shapes.
This is my favorite set of silicone spatulas. They’re super high quality, BPA free, won’t scratch your pans, and come in lots of fun colors.
This heat-resistant, silicone mat turns basically anything you put it on into a non-stick surface and is a great replacement for foil or parchment paper. You can use it hundreds of times, put it in the dishwasher, the oven, or the freezer, and nothing will stick. It’s magic!
By far my favorite kitchen item. This pressure cooker also doubles as a slow cooker, rice cooker, yogurt maker, steamer, & warmer. By getting the Instant Pot, it’s almost guaranteed that a few of your current kitchen gadgets will be rendered obsolete, freeing up much-needed counter and cupboard space.
Everyone should have at least one cast iron pan. They are perfect for cooking restaurant-quality dishes because they get super hot and stay hot so you can get an amazing sear on a steak or the crispiest hash browns you’ve ever tasted. This is a great, affordable, American-made brand.
This brand is pretty much the top in the world, and while you’ll definitely pay extra, you’ll have this pan the rest of your life.
This is the original all-purpose cookware. It’s perfect for long, slow braises, but you can also use it to bake, fry, poach, and stew. It’s a magical piece of cookware and everyone should have one.
Definitely don’t get a cast iron pan without also getting a chainmail cleaner for it. All you do is put a little warm water in your pan, swirl the chainmail around, and it’ll pick up all the weird crusty bits without damaging the finish. No soap needed!
The microplane is, of course, perfect for zesting any kind of citrus, but it has some lesser known uses too. I always use it to finely grate ginger and garlic, it’s super easy and you end up with a much finer result than you’d get with a knife.
This small, portable blender is powerful yet compact, and perfect for single-portion smoothies.
This is the Rolls Royce of blenders. It’s pricey but absolutely worth it in my opinion. It’s so powerful it can blend almost anything, it’s incredibly durable, and the variable speed gives you ultimate control. Besides the Instant Pot, this is definitely my favorite kitchen appliance.
Storing food in plastic isn’t ideal, as it can leach hormone-disrupting chemicals into your food. I prefer safer glass containers, which don’t stain or retain odors and are easy to clean.
This is a great tool for making delicious, healthy noodles out of almost any kind of vegetable. Zucchini noodles, carrot noodles, and sweet potato noodles are some of my favorites.
I use these reusable beeswax food wraps instead of plastic wrap and they help keep food fresh for a longer time, and beeswax is actually antibacterial and antifungal so you know nothing weird is going to start growing on your leftovers.
This nylon mesh bag (which is BPA-free btw) is great for straining any sort of plant-based milk you might make at home, or you can also use it to make cold brew coffee!
A slicer makes cutting vegetables so much faster and easier. I mostly use mine to rapidly make thin slices of vegetables like radishes for a salad or potatoes for a gratin. And if you ever want to make something like potato or zucchini chips, a mandolin is essential!
I take this with me every single time I travel. It fits in any water bottle and cleans and purifies water from any tap, absorbing impurities and eliminating odors to ensure clean, healthy and great-tasting water wherever I go.
The verdict is in: plastic bottles are bad for you. Stainless steel and glass are definitely the healthiest options. I like this double-walled stainless bottle because it keeps my drinks cold for hours and I love all the fun colors.
Single-use plastic straws aren’t great for the environment, so I love using these reusable glass straws in my smoothies and other cold drinks!
This ceramic water filter is one of the most effective and powerful you can get. Its small size means it doesn’t take up much counter space and can be taken with you almost anywhere to make sure you get pure water no matter where you are.
We often forget about water quality when it comes to bathing, but it’s important to think about because our skin is very absorbent and chlorine isn’t great for your skin or hair. This filter is amazing because it reduces up to 95% of chlorine in water and is able to reduce chemical absorption and vapor inhalation.
