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
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!
There are also many other smaller kitchen tools you might find help such as:
Quality can opener and peeler
Safe to use frying pans and pots
Measuring cups and spoons
Mason jars for serving and storage
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:
Purdy Natural - most of my makeup is from here!
The New New Age
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
Sun Potion - adaptogens
Oh My Yummies Crackers
Chickapea or Tolerant Pasta
Nuts for Cheese
...and probably so many more I'm not thinking of right now!
