healthy holidays

 

For the workout fanatic

Polar Vantage M workout watch ($$)

Polar Vantage M is an all-in-one multi-sport watch with built-in GPS, optical heart rate from the wrist, and advanced running and multi-sport features. Challenge your limits with Polar Vantage M, an all-around multi-sport & running GPS watch for anyone who loves setting new records. I personally love the interval feature of this watch for my workouts.

For the “dewey” skin

Beauty Counter makeup and lotion ($)

Keep your skin hydrated and nourished with Beauty Counter’s skincare collection featuring a full range of clean and safer products. Healthy-looking skin starts with products that are formulated with clean, effective ingredients. I use the Countermatch Adaptive Moisturizer and the Countermatch Recovery moisturizer every single day and have seen huge changes in my skin!

For the lotion lover

Xeba Botanica ($)

Conscious hemp beauty essentials! Vegan, organic, biodegradable, non-comedogenic, 100% natural & minimal ingredients. Their body butter is thick, rich, and creamy body butter whipped to perfection for daily head-to-toe hydration. It quickly penetrates, promotes healing, and combats dry aging skin. If you live in a warm climate like I do, this lotion is a must for keeping your skin hydrated all year long!

For the sun goddess

Beauty by Earth tinted SPF ($)

Greet the sun with mineral sunscreen without slathering yourself in toxic chemicals. This sunblock is free of parabens, oxybenzone, phthalates and all the other junk. It is water-resistant and the included tint makes it so versatile. I use this tinted sunscreen daily in place of foundation and love it for a natural and hydrated look!

For the natural curls

Heatless Babe Waves ($)

The Heatless Babe Waves waving cushion kit provides silky soft and “no pull” waves, for most hair lengths and types. They create gorgeous waves while you sleep and without heat! These are my go to for creating effortless waves without using heat.

*special discount offered*

For the coffee lover (who also needs to limit caffeine + mold exposure) 

Bulletproof Decaf ($)

This decaffeinated ground coffee features distinct notes of cinnamon, plum, and orange, with a cocoa hazelnut finish.  Expertly picked and sorted for the highest quality beans. It is passed through a thorough, sustainable washing and drying technique. It is tested for toxins before it meets your mug. I have tried many decaf coffees over the years and this is my personal favorite. I love that it is tested for toxins like mold and recommend it often for clients who are working on detoxification of toxins.

For the unhappy digestive system

Urban Moonshine ($)

Organic Digestive Bitters & Herbal Tonics.  Urban Moonshine includes a full selection of certified organic digestive bitters. Digestive bitters have been used for centuries to support digestive enzyme, stomach acid and bile acid support. Supporting these areas of digestion helps improve absorption of food, prevents bloating, and improves our micronutrient status. I personally love their travel size option to throw into your purse when on the go this Holiday season.

For the person healing their gut

Kettle & Fire bone broth ($)

Kettle & Fire’s bone broth is made with all organic ingredients and bones from 100% grass-fed cows. Their slow simmer process provides enough time for nutrients, collagen, and amino acids to be extracted into the broth. Bone broth is an excellent addition to any gut healing plan to heal leaky gut and provide essential minerals.

*special discount offered*

For the on-the-go-er

Designs for health bone broth protein ($)

An ideal protein powder for those who are in search of a high quality, dairy free protein source. I love using this powder in smoothies or chia seed pudding recipes. This product contains beef from animals raised in Sweden without hormones or antibiotics, is non-GMO and free of grains, grasses, and ensilage.

For the Meal Prepper 

Digestive friendly sauces from Amazon fresh ($)

These are some of the very sauces I use in my own kitchen to add healthy flavor to any dish. Most sauces and dressings on the market are loaded with hydrogenated oils and sugar! These sauces are all made with olive and avocado oil and only natural sugars. Give them a try during your next meal prep day!

For the Hot Sauce Lover

Down to Ferment ($)

Tired of hot sauces that are all heat or vinegar flavor with nothing to back it up? Ditch the one-pump chumps and get DTF for some of the best sauce you’ve ever tried. Down To Ferment creates a fermented hot sauce that says no to vinegar – using locally sourced peppers as well as kombucha to bolster the natural flavors. I love that it is rich in probiotics to help with feeding our good gut bugs.

For the wine lover

 Scout and Cellar Clean Wine ($)

Scout and Cellar is a clean crafted wine company that does extensive lab testing to guarantee that it’s free of yucky stuff like synthetic pesticides and chemical additives and has fewer than 100ppm of total sulfites. They also evaluate and review farming and production practices to confirm that they are, in fact, Clean-Crafted. They list the residual sugar content on all bottles of wine. Many contain less than 1 gram of residual sugar per bottle. Scout and Cellar is the only wine that I will drink. Not only do I love that it is clean crafted, I also love that you can wake up the next day and feel amazing because of the low sugar and sulfite content. This is the perfect gift to bring to your Holiday party!

For the sweet tooth lover 

Meet the Source ($)

The Source is a whole foods bakery specializing in raw desserts. They offer organic, gluten + dairy free desserts that are perfect for people with and without food sensitivities or allergies. As health advocates, their goal is to create nutritious desserts that are as delicious as their baked counterparts. A quick glance at their website and you will be able to understand why they are a personal favorite of mine for any occasion!

For the bread lover

Awg Bakery ($)

AWG Bakery bakes delicious grain-free, gluten-free, organic, vegan, and paleo bread. Enjoy bread that you will actually feel good about eating, has beneficial nutrients, and tastes SOOOO GOOD! This is a perfect option to use in place of a classic dinner roll for your Holiday meal. It also makes for a really tasty leftover turkey sandwich 🙂

*special discount offered*

 

For the root beer lover 

Goodonya Root Beer Soda ($)

Sometimes do you feel like you just want something fizzy and full of flavor? Goodonya has got you!

Herbal. 0 Sugar. Organic. – Tastes like the A&W we grew up with. Add a few squirts of this tasty concentrate to bubbly water and sip your way to root beer flavored health! This is an excellent replacement to traditional soda and can be used to make a yummy root beer float dessert this Holiday season.

For the hormone syncer 

Funk It Wellness Seed Cycling ($)

Use the healing power of seeds to sync your menstrual cycle.

Funk It Wellness makes seed cycling easy for you to manage by choosing high-quality organic seeds, grinding them fresh, and separating them into specific bags based on the phase of your menstrual cycle. I personally love incorporating these seeds into smoothies, chia seed pudding, and oatmeal dishes.
*special discount offered*

For the gut optimizer

Gut Health Test Package ($$)

The GI Map Comprehensive Stool Analysis analyzes your stool sample to assess your microbiome for bacterial and parasitic infections as well as digestive function and inflammation. This testing kit also includes a 1:1 consultation, meal planning, discounts on supplements, and educational resources from me! Stop guessing and start treating the imbalances in your gut so that you can say goodbye to bloating, constipation, diarrhea, heart burn, and skin issues.

For the hormone optimizer

Hormone test package  ($$)

The DUTCH test is a dried urine comprehensive assessment of reproductive hormones, adrenal hormones, and organic acid micronutrients. Testing provides insight into these levels and how your body is metabolizing them. This testing kit also includes a 1:1 consultation, meal planning, discounts on supplements, and educational resources to keep your hormones happy and healthy! This is perfect for getting to the root cause of your hormone imbalances like PMS, infertility, irregular periods, and skin issues.

For the big city living guy or gal

Air Filter – Air Doctor ($$)

Nip environmental toxins in the butt with this high quality air purifier by Air Doctor. We all know the negative effects of environmental toxins on the body – especially our hormones. The Air Doctor is small, quiet, and perfect for clean breathing. Learn more about why the quality of your air matters here.

For the candle Lover

Non-toxic Candles- Korals Candle ($)

Koral’s candles are made with all-natural soy wax and are phthalate-free. They’re eco-friendly, renewable, American grown, and carbon neutral. Soy wax is derived from the oil of soybeans. When compared to other types of wax, this soy wax burns cleaner and longer. They are my personal favorite for making the house smell like baked cinnamon rolls all winter long. I love that I can burn them and feel comfortable knowing that I am not exposing myself to hormone-disrupting phthalates.

*special discount offered*

 

For the light sleeper

Sound Machine  ($)

Cancel that mind chatter or external noises with this sound machine to help you sleep! The changing lights help set the mood and provide various sounds to choose from. This is an excellent option if you live in an apartment complex or have pets that make noise at night. Good quality sleep is something that I personally will not waiver on because of the important role it plays in our metabolism and hormones!

 

For the french fry lover

Non-toxic air fryer ($$)

Air frying is healthier than frying in oil. It cuts calories by 70% to 80% and doesn’t require hydrogenated oils. Plus – it also cuts down on cooking time for certain dishes. Set the temp and time, let it do its thing! Not all air fryers are created equal! This is a great non toxic option that doesn’t use non-stick coatings like most. I love using the air fryer for making quick turkey legs during the Holiday season.

For the water guzzler

Water – Berkey Filter ($$)

Berkey water filter systems eliminate 99.9999 percent of waterborne pathogens and viruses alongside more than 99.9 percent of heavy metals like arsenic, lead, mercury and chromium. Most traditional water filters don’t even come close to the filtration abilities of the Berkey. I have been using my Berkey for years and love the sleek design, the fresh taste and how effective it is at filtering all of the toxins in our water supply.
