Kyle and I just got back from the Natural Product Expo West in L.A., followed by a week vacation in Kauai (so dreamy). It’s taken a few days to collect our thoughts and ideas, but I can’t wait to share with you some of the products we discovered.
To start off, many of you ask what some of my ‘go-to’ products are, so I’ve listed out some of the products that are currently stealing my heart (and pantry space) every day.
Keep a look out this week for the top products + trends I’m most excited about in the next year.
Greens || I know, this is not the most exciting, but if you look in my fridge right now, 90% of the produce drawer of it is filled with green leafy veggies (kale, lettuce, chard). Greens are critical for all aspects of our health. If there’s any tip I give out to anyone, no matter what condition you have or what your goals are, it’s to eat more greens. Every meal, I attempt to have at least half of my plate be green veggies. Raw, sauteed, pureed, or powdered, your body will thank you. If you’re looking for a way to get even more greens into your diet (and who isn’t??), I love these powders - filled with spirulina, *list other ingredients*.
Ghee || I didn’t know I could be such a fan of clarified butter, but I put this stuff in/on everything. With one of the highest smoke points of all fats (485 degrees), no lactose, and a multitude of digestive benefits, this is my go-to fat. Ghee is also a cure-all in ayurveda, which makes it that much cooler. I currently add it to my coffee, use it as a cooking oil for vegetables, and sub it whenever a recipe calls for butter - which is saying a lot because we LOVE butter. My favorite brands are this and this.
Turmeric || Continuing with the Ayurveda trend, I introduce one of nature’s most potent anti-inflammatory foods. Go ahead and toss your ibuprofen, and snag a bottle of turmeric. Turmeric is a root (similar to ginger) with a bright orange color that is filled with curcumin, which gives it its strong anti-inflammatory + antioxidant powers. I take turmeric every morning via capsule, but also use it as a spice in many of our savory dishes. As a supplement, I’m in love with this brand and in cooking, I am a big fan of this.
Collagen || Not just for plastic surgery anymore ;) Kidding aside, I am a big fan of adding this flavorless protein to my coffee in the morning and green smoothies. Not only is this a great source of protein, it also helps your skin glow and improves connective tissue in your body (win/win/win). My go-to for all things collagen are these guys.
Fun treats || It’s time to get a little less serious and focus on fun treats that aren’t loaded with gluten + sugar. Unless I’m doing a full sugar cleanse, I’m all about those indulgent treats that are paleo + gluten-free + (insert diet here). If I’m craving something sweet, I typically make my berry cobbler or bake up some delish cookies.
While this isn’t all my pantry consists of, these are a few of the staples that I typically keep stocked.
I would love to hear what some of your staples are - drop us a note!
