Kettle & Fire is my go-to when it comes to bone broth. Not only did they create the first USDA Grass-Fed, Pastured Raised Bone Broth, but Kettle & Fire broths are also completely shelf-stable, so I can store it in my pantry and free up some valuable fridge and freezer space. Bone broth is one of our most healing diet staples – it contains valuable minerals in a form your body can easily absorb and use, including calcium, magnesium, phosphorus, silicon, chondroitin, glucosamine, AND it’s chockablock full of amino acids! So stock up your pantry with Kettle & Fire Chicken, Mushroom, or Beef bone broth ASAP!

Adding MCT Oil into your diet will re-awaken your energy, assist in weight management, and optimize performance. As soon as you consume MCT Oil, it is rapidly absorbed and changed into ketone bodies – providing instant energy to the brain without breaking down glucose from sugars or carbohydrates. This oil produces 4x the ketone energy of plain coconut oil, and also has potent anti-microbial effects that help support healthy digestion and immune function.

- Activated Charcoal – Activated charcoal is a highly absorbent material with millions of tiny pores that can capture, bind, and remove up to 100 times the charcoal’s weight in toxins. The porous surface has a negative electric charge that attracts positively charged toxins and gas to be carried easily out of the body.

- Berkey Water Filter – Countertop water filter, the Big Berkey system removes pathogenic bacteria, cysts and parasites entirely and extracts harmful chemicals such as herbicides, pesticides, VOCs, organic solvents, radon 222 and trihalomethanes. It also reduces nitrates, nitrites and unhealthy minerals such as lead and mercury. This system also includes fluoride filters to reduce the amount of fluoride in your water up to 95%. Does not remove the beneficial minerals from water.
- AquaTru Reverse Osmosis Countertop Water Filter – The first and only countertop reverse osmosis water purifier that is certified to create bottled-quality water from your tap. No plumbing or installation required. AquaTru uses reverse osmosis which removes fluoride.

Removes fluoride, pathogenic bacteria, pharmaceutical compounds, chlorine, and herbicides. **Note : this filter only works with old school kitchen faucets, no fancy new ones! Check out the Berkey Water Filter instead.
- Food Processor
- Dehydrator – One of the best ways to save money on real food is to maximize great deals on produce is to stock up and preserve them for later. Tomatoes are dried for a zesty addition to Italian dishes later and fruits such as apples can be dried with cinnamon for a kid-friendly treat. You can also dry the herbs you grow for use in the winter, make beef jerky, yogurt, dry coconut flour, make your own soaked and dehydrated nuts, fruit leather, etc. I like this dehydrator because it has ample space for large batches, plus a timer and a wide variety of temperature options.
- Ice Cream Maker – I use this one to make coconut milk ice cream!
- Immersion Blender – Perfect for making single serving smoothies, homemade mayo or salad dressing. Find them in all kinds of cute colors here.
- Stand Mixer – The absolute best for all things baking. And for making homemade marshmallows :).
- Slow Cooker – I’m often asked if I know of any slow cookers that are guaranteed to be lead and cadmium-free. Answering that question is trickier than you might imagine, because many companies simply say that their products meet the FDA’s guidelines, which does allow for some lead/cadmium. However, there is a way to dig deeper. California’s Prop 65 requires companies to disclose any lead or cadmium that is present, so you can contact companies and see if they have anything to disclose. This slow cooker does not require a Prop 65 label because it has been tested and found to be free of lead and cadmium.
Glass Storage Containers With Leak-Proof Lids – I like to store leftovers in see-through containers. It makes seeing what I have so much easier, and it reduces the chance something will be wasted because it’s forgotten about. Here are some of my favorite options:
They’re an investment, but they last a very long time – they’ve passed the kid test by enduring more than 3 million uses per tab in a test environment. Each glass cube can be sealed with a leak-proof silicone seal that is removable for easy washing.
Welcome to a space created to guide you and inspire you. Whether you’re trying to fix your hormonal chaos, get pregnant, grow a healthy baby, or ultimately just feel happy and content in your body, I’m so glad you’re here!
