Excalibur Dehydrator: I love my Excalibur dehydrator which I use to prepare raw foods and dehydrate everything from nuts, seeds and beans to kale (love the kale chips!). It has a 24-hour timer which allows me to “set it and forget it” overnight without worrying about over-dehydrating.
Omega 6th Generation Juicer: I use my juicer several times a week. I love it because it is a masticating juicer, so the juice lasts up to 3 days when refrigerated vs. only a few hours when using a centrifugal juicer. This type of juicer also handles leafy greens better and can even handle wheatgrass.
Foods & Supplements
Nutiva Organic Virgin Coconut Oil: This is my favorite coconut oil. I use it to sauté, add it into my organic coffee or in my quinoa, and even eat it by the spoonful. It is a natural
Nutiva Organic Hemp Protein Powder: I use this in smoothies and even in my oatmeal as an alternative to whey protein powder. It has a nice, mild taste.
Nutiva Organic Chia Seeds: Chia seeds are a good plant-based source of protein, omega-3 and fiber and they also pack a punch with antioxidants and lots of other nutrients as well like manganese, magnesium and phosphorus. I put these in salads, greek yogurt and smoothies or I make chia seed pudding.
Manitoba Harvest Hemp Hearts: I sprinkle these in oatmeal, yogurt, salads, smoothies, soups, almost everywhere. They are a good plant-based protein and I love buying these packets because I can easily take them with me when I travel.

Traditional Medicinals Organic Roasted Dandelion Root Tea: I drink a cup of this tea every day. It helps support the liver and healthy digestion.
ChlorOxygen Concentrated Chlorophyll: I put a dropper-full of this in water to drink every day to help build red blood cells to better oxygenate my organs and body and to help support my liver. I love the small bottle because this travels well.
Nutrex Hawaii Pure Hawaiian Spirulina Pacifica: I add this to smoothies a few times a week as an excellent source of iron, beta carotene, Vitamin B12, manganese, chromium among many other nutrients.
Garden of Life Primal Defense Ultra: This is one of my favorite probiotics for supporting gut health. I take this every day.
Books & Videos
Clean Gut by Alejandro Junger, M.D.: An excellent book that explains how the root of disease is in the gut and what we should do about that.
“Hungry for Change”: This is an eye-opening documentary on diet, weight loss and the food industry. I found this to be a very compelling video!
“Forks over Knives”: This video is also compelling! It shows how diseases that afflict us can be controlled, or even reversed, by rejecting our present menu of animal-based and processed foods.
