Having the right ingredients on hand that are supportive of your wellness or weight loss goals is key for long term success. Over the years, I've discovered a variety of high quality brands that I now personally use on a daily basis. The list below is one that I will be coming back and adding to as I learn of more brands that are delicious, nutrition-focused and easy to implement. Each of these ingredients can also be found and used in my Complete Intermittent Fasting Bundle recipes and meal plans.


The majority of the ingredients below can be ordered online and easily shipped to your house (for maximum convenience!). Checkout my grocery haul and the ingredients that you can always find in my (nerdy) kitchen so that you can start adding these into your meals!

Smoothie/Break-Fast Ingredients:


Protein powder

There are a lot of bad protein powders out there. My criteria for protein powder is based on sugar content, amino acid utilization (how well your body actually uses the protein) and heavy metal testing.


You can check out my criteria for protein powder and what to look out for with THIS blog post.



Collagen Powder

Ancient Nutrition's collagen has been clinically studied to have skin, hair and muscle recovery benefits.(1) You can find their Multi Collagen on Amazon HERE.


Purity Coffee

I only use Purity Coffee because it's tested to be mold and mold-toxin-free as well as optimized for antioxidants (and organic!).

Chia Seeds

These can be a little tricky to find at some grocery stores, which is why Amazon can be such a lifesaver! THIS brand of organic chia seeds is my go-to.



Coconut Butter

Also known as coconut manna. Much different than the vegan alternative butter replacements. THIS is the brand I prefer (conveniently on Amazon as well).

Flax Seeds

Key point here - always buy whole, NOT ground flax seeds. This helps to preserve the quality of the fats in the flax seeds. These are easily purchased in bulk at most health food stores.



Almond Butter/Peanut Butter

Avoid the sneaky peanut butter "spreads", which are highly indicative of added sugar. Instead opt for an organic peanut or almond butter that only uses almonds/peanuts in the ingredients list. (And avoid PB2 - you don't get any beneficial satiating fats with powdered peanut butter.) Many brands can fit this bill, but THIS is the brand of peanut butter that I like (found on Amazon and most health food stores).

Cacao Nibs

Cacao nibs are the raw form of chocolate and provide a sugar-free crunchy topping to your smoothies. I use THIS brand, found on Amazon.


Toasted Coconut Flakes

You can definitely make your own toasted coconut flakes to top your smoothie or greek yogurt bowls. But if you're in a pinch, THIS organic brand can be found at Whole Foods, some health food stores and even on Amazon for delivery.



Coconut Shreds

Coconut shreds are useful for making your own homemade coconut milk for smoothies. And it literally takes 5 minutes or less to make coconut milk (checkout my video below for the deets). THIS is a great organic coconut shred option, also found on Amazon for delivery.


Coconut Milk

I personally make my own coconut milk. However, if you're short on time, THIS is a great unsweetened option.

  • Looking for almond milk? THIS is a great option.

  • What about hemp seed milk? HERE ya go.

  • Cashew milk?! I've got you covered HERE.

Kettle & Fire Bone Broth

You can 100% make your own DIY bone broth (in fact, I have a fairly simple recipe in the Complete Intermittent Fasting Bundle). However, if you forgot to make your own or if you don't really want to go through the added effort, Kettle & Fire bone broth is an amazing option. It's slow simmered and uses grass-fed bones for maximum extraction of gut healing nutrients.

Celtic Sea Salt

This is my personal preferred option for electrolyte replacement while Intermittent Fasting. It can also be used for cooking. If you can't find it at your local grocery store, it's super accessible for delivery via Amazon HERE.


Almond Flour

Almond flour is a great swap for regular flour to help keep insulin from spiking. I use almond flour in muffin recipes, pancakes and the Chicken Tenders in the 7 Day Intermittent Fasting Detox. THIS is a great organic option for almond flour, which can be found on Amazon.

Coconut Flour

Another great swap for regular flour to keep insulin from skyrocketing. I like THIS brand that can be found on Amazon for delivery or at most health food stores.



Canned Coconut Milk

I searched high and low for a pure canned coconut milk that doesn't contain guar gum. THIS brand met those expectations (while still being organic, too!). It can be ordered on Amazon (here) or found in some health food stores.

NuCo Coconut Wraps

Most "grain-free" wraps typically contain a high amount of cassava flour or tapioca flour/starch. Although these are "gluten-free", it's still a highly refined starch source that can cause insulin levels to spike. Instead, I opt for a coconut wrap that uses coconut meat, coconut oil and a bit of coconut water. You can find it at most health food stores or on Amazon HERE.


Trader Joes Jicama Wraps

This entirely whole food wrap alternative is made from thinly sliced jicama... and that's it. It's crunchy and a great alternative to regular wheat wraps for burritos or sandwich wraps. You can find these conveniently at Trader Joes or you can make it yourself by thinly slicing jicama.


Supplements


LMNT Electrolyte Replacement

If you aren't a fan of adding salt to your water, you can also opt for LMNT. LMNT is an electrolyte company developed with Intermittent Fasting in mind. It also contains zero added sugars, making it a great option while working toward a weight loss goal. You can find LMNT on Amazon HERE.



Earth Circle Chlorella

When choosing a Chlorella, it's important to opt for an organic, cracked-cell source. Otherwise, it can be quite difficult to absorb. I use the Brand Earth Circle, which can be found on Amazon HERE.


Happy shopping!


Your Nutritionist,
