protein powder GOL.jpg

Garden of Life

Protein Powder

As we age, we need more protein.

This protein powder is always in my smoothie. The added vitamins & minerals round out this product nicely. I prefer the vanilla flavor, but it also comes in chocolate. The Fit version & Sport version are also full of benefits. Experiment to see which one works best for you!


Vital Proteins

Collagen Powder

I add 1 scoop of this collagen powder to my smoothie for an extra protein boost. You can also add it to coffee. There are about 28 types of collagen. This one is good for improving skin elasticity, inflammation, joint health, gut health, sleep, & mood.

coco oil.jpg

Nature's Way

Coconut Oil

Coconut oil contains medium-chain triglycerides (MCTs), which are used for energy by the body.

It may improve inflammation, brain function, support heart health, and aid in weight loss. 


Organic Valley Ghee

Ghee is another great fat for cooking & baking. It tastes like nutty, creamy butter. I put 1 tsp in my smoothies or in a mug of bone broth. Ghee has fat-soluble vitamins, CLA, & butyrate.

Great for gut health, inflammation, & brain health.


Spectrum Chia Seed

Add chia seeds to smoothies, yogurt, water, & salads. I prefer ground chia because it doesn't get stuck in my teeth! Chia is a great source of omega-3, antioxidants, & fiber. Chia is great for your heart, gut, bones, & skin.  


Spectrum Flaxseed

Flax is great for smoothies & yogurt. It adds some thickness while also ramping up your omega-3 & fiber intake. I prefer to alternate chia & flax in my smoothie for a change. It's a nutrient-dense food & great for heart, bone, skin, gut, & more!


Chocolove 88%

Dark Chocolate

Quality high-cocoa dark chocolate is rich in antioxidants. These bars are divided into squares for easy portion control. You can slather on some coconut oil for healthy fat & have a satisfying treat! If you crave choco & sugar, read how to finally kick choco & sugar cravings here.

endangered choco.jpg

Endangered Species 88%

Dark Chocolate

These choco bars are another fav of mine. They're also divided into squares. It's important to buy choco that's been tested by 3rd parties because choco can be extremely dirty. You can trust these 2 brands are free from heavy metals. Read more about choco toxicity risk here.

sweet thins.jpg

Simple Mills

Sweet Thins

These cookies are more like crackers, but they hit the choco spot. It's hard not to eat the whole box. They're made from seed & nut flours so they're gluten-free & Paleo-friendly. Simple Mills makes other flavors and lots of other products. Try them all!


Siete Tortilla Chips

These tortilla chips will soon be your fav because they're light & crispy. PLUS they're gluten-free & Paleo-friendly. They're made from cassava flour. Cassava is a root vegetable with a mild flavor, similar to yucca.


Siete Tortillas

Like the Siete chips, the tortillas are made with cassava flour. We use them for breakfast burritos, turkey wraps, & bean burritos. Siete also makes great-tasting almond flour tortillas.

Try them both!


Siete Taco Shells

Siete taco shells, like the chips & tortillas, are made from cassava flour. All products are gluten-free & Paleo-friendly. My family loves taco night because of these taco shells. We avoid corn & gluten so these shells save Taco Tuesdays!

bone broth.jpg

Kettle & Fire

Beef Bone Broth

I love this bone broth as a snack, especially when it's cold outside.

Pour 1 cup of bone broth into a coffee mug, add 1 tsp of ghee, microwave, stir, & enjoy!

Bone broth has many benefits: great for gut health, inflammation, joints, skin, hair, and nails.

beef strips.jpg

EPIC Wagyu Beef

Steak Jerky

EPIC beef jerky tastes savory & a bit sweet thanks to the added touch of honey. It's a great on-the-go snack to up your protein intake. If you prefer less sweet, try one of their other flavors: venison, bison, chicken, or salmon. 


Lesser Evil

Organic Popcorn

Popcorn can be full of toxins because corn is one of the most genetically-modified & heavily-pesticided items on earth. Corn can also be hard to digest. Lesser Evil has your popcorn fix without the toxicity. Try all their flavors! You can't go wrong!

tea green ginger.jpg

Traditional Medicinals

Green Tea with Ginger

Green tea is beneficial because it is low in caffeine, has EGCG (powerful antioxidant), & L-theanine (calming amino acid). Don't like green tea? The trick is to steep different teas together for a custom blend. I like to blend this one & Yogi Dandelion Detox.

tea dandelion.jpg

Yogi Tea

Dandelion Detox

This caffeine-free herbal tea pairs well with green tea. I limit myself to 2 cups of green tea/day so herbal teas without caffeine help when I'm bored with water. Note that herbal teas can conflict with prescriptions so check with your doctor before consuming, & confirm dosage constraints. 

tea tazo.jpg

Tazo Tea

Green Ginger Pear

This Tazo tea is nice because it has a shorter steep time (1-3 minutes) which is helpful for those days you cannot wait for 10-minute tea. I'm looking at you, Monday.

There are too many great teas to list them all here. These brands have a wide variety of flavors for you to explore. 


Remember, if your gut isn't absorbing nutrients properly, you're wasting money taking supplements. Read more about importance of gut health &

probiotic SBO.jpg

Ancient Nutrition

Soil-Based Probiotics

With over 500 probiotic species, you can quickly get overwhelmed & confused about which one to take. I simplified it into 3 categories & CFUs, which you can read about here.

This soil-based probiotic satisfies one of the categories.

probiotics 100B.jpg

Garden of Life

100B CFU Probiotics

This probiotic, which includes 100 billion colony forming units (CFUs), pairs well with the Ancient Nutrition SBO probiotic because of the complementary genera & strains. Read more about my approach to probiotics & their role in gut health here.

fish oil.jpg

Nordic Naturals Ultimate Omega 2X Fish Oil

Nordic Naturals is a trusted brand known for their fish oil. This particular version is high dosage, which is why I prefer it. Fish oil has a variety of benefits for both mental & physical health. Read more here

Women's Multivitamin

Most women do not get enough nutrition through diet alone, which is why a good multivitamin helps. Depending on your nutrient deficiencies, Centrum Silver might be a good multivitamin for you -- regardless of your age.

Jarrow PS 100

Phosphatidylserine (PS) is a type of phospholipid that can be found in high amounts in the brain. It has been shown to improve cognitive function, memory, and mood. PS has also been found to reduce cortisol levels and help alleviate symptoms of stress.

You Theory Collagen

As we age, our collagen production slows down, resulting in joint problems & loss of skin elasticity. There are about 28 types of collagen. This one is for skin, hair, & nails. It provides 6,000 mg of collagen per serving plus a bit of vita C to help with absorption.



Vitamin D3 with K2

Many of us are low in vitamin D because we spend too much time indoors & wear sunscreen when we go outdoors. This D3 comes with K2, which is key for vitamin D absorption. Vitamin D is known to help with regulating mood as well as decreasing anxiety & depression.


Dr.'s Best High Absorption Curcumin

Curcumin (found in turmeric) is widely used to combat inflammation. Inflammation leads to many symptoms such as anxiety, stress, & depression. Curcumin may also increase brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF), which helps our brains form new neurons. New neurons = ability to deal with trauma + stress.

Magnesium NV.png

Natural Vitality Calm


Magnesium is crucial because it's used by every cell in your body, & many people are deficient in it. Low levels impact brain function & increase susceptibility to stress, which can result in depression & anxiety. This magnesium is easy to take -- just add a scoop to your favorite beverage. It comes in an unflavored version as well.


Biocidin Botanicals


To improve your gut health, my two fav products are GI Detox and Biocidin from the company Biocidin Botanicals. Gut health repair is a multi-step process, & I strongly recommend working with a functional medicine practitioner to successfully guide you through the process. Biocidin is one of the first steps towards repairing leaky gut & removing microbes & biofilm. Read more about gut repair here.   

GI detox.jpg

Biocidin Botanicals

GI Detox

GI Detox is another great product, from the company Biocidin Botanicals, to assist with detox. Detoxing is a multi-step process, & I strongly recommend working with a functional medicine practitioner to help you successfully navigate the process. GI Detox has zeolite clay & activated charcoal to help bind to toxins to flush them from your system. Learn more about the importance of detox here.


Apex Energetics


Adaptogens, like ashwagandha, Asian ginseng, rhodiola, & holy basil, are effective at regulating the body's stress response, reducing cortisol levels, & balancing adrenals. All of that equals less anxiety. I've tried several adaptogenic products, & this remains my favorite. You can read more about adaptogens, HPA axis, and how the body handles stress here.
