Things I Love!

Updated: Mar 5, 2019

Ok, so if I'm being honest, this post is completely biased but I wanted to share some brands, blogs and other resources I like in case they are helpful to others! Below you will find some blogs, kitchen gadgets, personal care products, and health food brands that I have come to love and use regularly!

I'm Not a Chef...

Although I love creating new recipes for my followers, I am not a chef and only began cooking for myself a few years ago. I like to follow other food bloggers for healthy recipes and inspiration. Here are a few of my favourites:

1. Kris Carr

2. Nutrition Stripped

3. Minimalist Baker

4. Deliciously Ella

Kitchen Gadgets 

Kitchen appliances can be expensive and I understand that not everyone has access to them. However, if you do have the luxury of making some upgrades, I recommend you do your research. Below is a list of useful appliances to promote healthy eating as well as top brands. If you have any questions or other recommendations please feel free to leave them in the comments section! 


Food processor










There are also many other smaller kitchen tools you might find help such as:

Lemon press

Garlic press

Quality can opener and peeler

Good knives

Safe to use frying pans and pots

Tea kettle

Measuring cups and spoons

Mason jars for serving and storage

Personal Care

Personal care products can be full of toxins which absorb through our skin or by breathing them in. Luckily, there are a lot more brands out there that provide safe makeup, deodorants, shampoos, lotions, and more. There are also tons of recipes online to make your own personal care products that use coconut oil, castile soap, shea butter, lemon juice and other ingredients around your house. 

Here are some of my favourite brands/places to shop:


Detox Market

Purdy Natural - most of my makeup is from here!

Green Beaver

Dr. Bronners

The New New Age

Jason (toothpaste)

Food Brands 

It can sometimes be hard navigating the health food section which is especially true since certain foods might not be as healthy as they appear. Even in the past year I have noticed that Canada now has access to so many more health brands. Although I recommend cooking from scratch when you can, there are a lot of great packaged options for those o the go. Below are some of my favourite brands and shops:


Pure Paleo collagen protein

Great Lakes collagen

Sun Potion - adaptogens

Oh My Yummies Crackers

Pukka Tea

Boho Bars

Manitoba Harvest hemp seeds

Four Sigmatic mushrooms elixirs

Chickapea or Tolerant Pasta

Nuts for Cheese


Siete chips

Eating Evolved chocolate 

Purely Elizabeth granola

Matcha Ninja 

Plant Snacks

...and probably so many more I'm not thinking of right now! 



Whole Foods

Natura Market

Pure Feast
