High Heat Bae
This delicious cold pressed, minimally processed monounsaturated oil is a favorite to sauté or stir fry at high temps. Neutral flavor makes it a great alternative to coconut oil for many applications.
Coconut Oil Forevvvver
Virgin Coconut oil is so versatile. Cook with it at high temps for a delicious plant based saturated fat. This size is great to divvy up into smaller pots and use in the bathroom and even in the bedroom ;)
Cold Pressed EVOO
Cold pressed oils are free from weird toxic practices that infuse the oils with harmful solvents. Dark colored bottles ensure that the delicate nature of these monounsaturated oils is in tact. Use this to dress salads or as a finishing oil.
Get those Omega 3's
This is an incredible tasting source of Essential Omega 3 fatty acids. Cold pressed, pure flax seed oil supports your bodies ability to anti-inflame.
Sesame Butter (basically)
Tahini is sesame butter. You can use this to make dressings, hummus, dips, spreads and more. This brand is particularly great because it is made in a facility without other allergens, and it is made traditionally - grinding the sesame seeds by stone, without the use of machinery and solvents which denature the oils.
A little goes a long way, add it into your marinades or towards the end of cooking your stir fry- this oil packs a huge flavor punch.
100% Grass Fed Beef Tallow
This is a nutrient dense saturated cooking fat to use for high heat cooking. It is mild in flavor, and carries the same rich profile as butter- but without the dairy. Anything that calls for ghee gets swapped out for this instead at my house.
This has replaced any kind of nut butter in my life. I'm obsessed with it, and you'll soon know why. It is naturally sweet, rich and full of healthy saturated fat. Put it on fruit, or in between layers of Pascha chocolate for a homemade coconut butter cup that is everything.
These little tiny seeds pack a big nutritional punch. They are rich in Gamma Linoleic Acid- a necessary component for your body to build the anti inflammatory hormone type substance called prostaglandins. Hemp milk is my favorite milk alternative, no soaking required.
Raw Organic Cashews
Snack on them raw, or top salads or stir fry's with them- they add crunch and a rich nutty flavor to your life. I make vegan cheese using these, and it is magic.
Salty Sea Snax
Kali and I finish these packs off quicker than I'd like to admit. They are perfect for scooping, rolling, and vesseling any number of delicious creations. The key with this brand is that they do not use any weird funky fillers or oils- seaweed, olive oil and salt. Also check out the larger nori sheets- perfect for burrito-ing.
These are nature's candy, and pack a serious sugar rush, so proceed with caution. Just one little date packs a hugely nutrient dense daily profile of fiber, potassium, magnesium and B6. Perfect to add a pinch of sweet to your homemade dairy free milk, or to treat yourself by drizzling in coconut butter. Great to balance acidity in dressings, marinades and sauces.
This stuff is as pure as it gets. No soy, no sugar, no vanilla. Just 100% Cacao mass. Its strong, and bold and the perfect building block to create homemade keto cups. You can add your own preferred sweetener (Monk Fruit Sweetener) and flavor (almond) to create something perfect for your tastes and objectives.
Chomp on Chomps!
I can't tell you how delicious these are- you really have to try for yourself. Love picking up the original flavor at Trader Joe's- but our household favorite is Cranberry! I have to be honest with you guys. Even though I stay true to my values and won't ever yuck your yum, Epic bars and many other portable meat snacks are just NOT my bag, baby. Chomps sticks have great ingredients, flavors and the texture is on POINT.
Favorite Potato Chip
Even though life is all about moderation, I do not have a moderation setting when it comes to some of these snacks. Made with coconut oil, salt, potatoes, AND LOVE- this family business created an entirely new way to cook these chips without denaturing the oil. Low and slow kettle cooked potato chips with no junk ingredients from their families to ours. For those indulgent moments- snack on these instead of their hydrogenated and toxic counterparts.
It was love at first cracker. You know how much I love to entertain? Now that I've gotten the best fancy AF grain free crackers and the hang of making diary free cheese, (Thanks to Vegan Cheese by Jules Aron) I am all over the dairy free, grain free but on-point cheese platter. No deprivation over here, thank you very much.
Almond Flour Crackers
These are also incredible and serve a different purpose in my house. These are the grain free 'saltine' substitute- great for enjoying with soups, stews and scooping up dips. I highly recommend the sea salt flavor, not too fond of the other flavors.
Salty Snacks, Yes please! These are good for a clean (corn free) chip made with avocado oil. for all your dipping needs. I personally, am not into the other flavors, we stick with the sea salt.
Let's Taco 'Bout It
Learning to love and embrace the lettuce wrap, collarito (collad wrapped burrito) and coconut wrap is essential (and easy IMO). But, sometimes you just need a legit taco. Don't deprive yourself, because eating in this way isn't sustainable if you do. Buy the tortilla, make the taco, and enjoy every minute.
Speaking of Wraps
Wrap it uppppp. These are super high quality, and really satisfying for those same cravings. No, it's not bread- but it is bomb. AF.
Coconut Tortilla Chips
Last salty snack, I promise. These are way cheaper at select Whole Foods. They are DELICIOUS. Super thick, and crunchy and perfect to satisfy a nacho craving?
This organic magic powder dusts most of my food. It's salty, slightly crunchy and full of umami power for all things from eggs to stir fry.
ACV for DOF (digestion on fleek, duh)
Wake up that stomach acid first thing in the morning with a few tsp's in your water. Unless you are hard and can swig it straight- which I NO can do. Kudos to you, friend. This is also clutch in your broth for breaking down those bones and releasing the minerals and nutrients.
These little bad boys are dangerous, in the best possible way, of course. If you are going to indulge- this is the way to go and they are my favorite movie theatre purse snack.
That GOOD good
This saucy, sweet, earthy, umami mother-of-goodness is essential in your gluten free pantry. This brand is the best, IMO. It is thicker and more flavorful than the brand you'll find in stores.
Get over your aversion to the strong smell and buy it (unless you are allergic to fish, of course.) It will up the flavor ante in anything. I use it in my stocks, stews, soups, stir fry's and anything else saucy and savory that starts with an "s".
Spice up your life
This collection will give you everything you need to get going in the kitchen. The small size will be great to be introduced to various flavors and profiles, without committing much space (or too many funds) to a full sized bottle. I can't wait to help you get better acquainted, and more comfortable mixing, matching and blending these to help support your health gaining journey!
This stuff is tasteless, odorless, and a really powerful supplement. Mix it into your water, coffee, broth, tea...anything liquid. It has done wonders to help me heal and seal my leaky gut- because a girl can't drink bone broth all day erryday. This is a great way to help rebuild the integrity of your intestinal lining.
