Beautycounter is my one-stop-shop for clean body care, sunscreen, cosmetics and more. They won’t put anything in their products that hasn’t been tested, and they ban more than 1,500 questionable or harmful chemicals through “The Never List™” — all while ensuring their products perform and that they’re as indulgent as any other luxe shampoo, lipstick, or oil in the market. Decades of studies indicate that serious health issues (including but not limited to asthma, cancer, and infertility) are on the rise and are due in some part to our ongoing exposure to toxic chemicals. There are more than 80,000 chemicals on the market today. Many don’t have any safety data. This is particularly true of those used in the skin care and beauty industry. What’s worse is that the Food and Drug Administration (the agency that regulates cosmetics in the United States) does not have the authority to remove harmful ingredients from the products we put on our bodies and on our kids’ bodies every single day, day after day. Beautycounter is committed to a health and safety standard that goes well beyond what’s required by U.S. law and their products are amazing!
Thrive Market is my absolute favorite online marketplace to stock up on daily essentials. They offer 400+ of the top brands in the natural food space, and only the best non-GMO food and wholesome products. Thrive Market allows you to shop by your values and dietary preferences – whether you are Paleo, Gluten-Free, Raw, Vegan or feeding a family, you’ll find everything you need in one place. As an added bonus, for every paid membership, Thrive Market donates a free membership to a low income American family so we can all thrive together :).
Butcher Box is my go-to for affordable pasture-raised, grass-fed and grass-finished beef, pork, and chicken, SHIPPED TO YOUR DOOR! They deliver the amazing cuts of 100% grass-fed, grass-finished beef, heritage breed pork, and free-range, organic chicken from trusted farmers right to your door.

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!

Clear Blue Advanced Digital Ovulation Predictor Kit Testing – Clearblue Advanced Digital Ovulation Test is 99% accurate  at detecting your luteinizing hormone (LH) surge. All other ovulation tests only detect one hormone, luteinizing hormone (LH). Clearblue Advanced Digital Ovulation Test detects the rise in LH and estrogen, another key fertility hormone that increases in the days before the LH surge. By tracking these 2 key hormones, this test typically identifies 4 fertile days leading up to and including the day of ovulation—2x as many as any other test. It identifies your 2 Peak Fertility days (LH surge) and, typically, 2 High Fertility days (rising estrogen levels).
Berkey Shower Filter – Made by my favorite water filter company, Berkey, this shower filter reduces up to 95% of chlorine, reduces chemical absorption and vapor inhalation, and reduces lime, scale, mold and fungi in showers. Berkey shower filters typically last (approx.) one year or 20,000 gallons (whichever comes first) before a replacement is needed
Squatty Potty 7” and Squatty Potty 9” – So, let’s talk about this and then pretend that we didn’t, okay? This sleek stool puts your body into a natural squatting position over your own toilet. When positioned correctly, your body is able to eliminate more quickly and completely, reducing problems like hemorrhoids and constipation. Proper posture is also thought to be helpful for pelvic floor function, and may reduce colon disease by allowing the body to fully release toxins. Squatty Potty’s come in two sizes: 7″ for standard toilets and 9″ for higher toilets.
Skin & Body
Beautycounter – My one-stop-shop for all my body care, sunscreen, cosmetics. They won’t put anything in their products that hasn’t been tested, and they ban more than 1,500 questionable or harmful chemicals through “The Never List™” — all while ensuring their products perform and that they’re as indulgent as any other luxe shampoo, lipstick, or oil in the market.

Diva Cup (pre-birth) and Diva Cup (post-birth)
Magnesium Spray – Great for morning sickness & for kids. I rub this on at night for deep sleep. It’s also helpful for muscle relaxation.
Dry Skin Brush – With the right tool, dry brushing can be an invigorating way to tighten and tone skin while supporting detoxification via the lymph system. My favorite morning activity is waking up, dry skin brush, rub my body with almond oil, and then take a COLD shower (don’t get your hair wet). This is an ancient Ayurvedic technique that is amazing for your immune system, hormones, skin, and entire endocrine system.

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.
AquaCera – Countertop water filter that attached directly to your kitchen sink faucet so you can toggle between filtered water and tap water (for washing dishes). 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.
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:
- Large Storage Containers – Great for storing meals, soups and salads.
- Medium Storage Cubes – This is my favorite size for mayo and salsa.
- Rectangular Storage Tubs – Perfect for snacks like mixed nuts or coconut date rolls.
- Small Glass Storage Cubes – I love these for dipping sauces.
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.
Sweat With Me
Rebounder – Rebounding is a gentle way to work out and support the lymph system as it detoxifies the body. I jump on mine in 5-10 minute intervals throughout the day when I need to reset mentally or emotionally. Here’s the rebounder we have. It folds in half, so it can easily be stored in a closet or under the bed.
Raj Yoga + Meditation – My absolute favorite yoga studio in Boulder, CO. They offer kundalini, vinyasa, yin, gong baths, meditation, amazing workshops, and an awesome community.
Mecha – A Lagree Fitness™ studio located in Boulder CO, which merges elements of Pilates and resistance training into a zero-impact, butt kicking, no-rest, 50-minute session.
