SAUCES + DRESSINGS:
+ Coconut Aminos: use this as a soy sauce substitute! Stir fry, BBQ chicken, etc. to add a salty umami flavor to a dish
+ Red Boat Fish Sauce: we use this in Asian inspired dishes!
+ Primal Kitchen or Tessames salad dressings
+ Avocado Oil Mayo: we mostly make our own but love this one in a pinch! The chipotle lime is amazing too!
OILS + VINEGAR:
+ Avocado oil: for cooking, dressings, making homemade mayo
+ Good quality Olive Oil: for cooking, dressings, etc.
+ Coconut oil: for all. the. things. but especially cooking eggs!
+ Bragg Apple Cider Vinegar (with 'the mother'!): for dressings, cooking and literally SO GOOD for your health! We do a shot of ACV + apple juice + cassia oil + cayenne +/- turmeric daily for health + wellness!
NUTS + SEEDS:
+ Almond butter: for snacks, cooking, basically a replacement for peanut butter
+ Almonds, cashews, pumpkin seeds: for snacking, adding to salads
+ Canned coconut milk: this is a must! Coconut milk yogurt, our favorite coconut curry, even in your coffee!
+ Kettle & Fire Bone Broth: for cooking or drinking (amazing when you have a cold!)
+ Organic crushed (or diced) tomatoes, tomato paste, marinara sauce
+ Nutpods: we usually drink black coffee, but this is a great alternative!
+ Peppermint tea: this isn't totally necessary, but sometimes I love a good mug of tea, especially when we are limiting or eliminating coffee!
+ Organic oregano, paprika, cumin, garlic, onion powder, chili powder, Italian seasoning, thyme, Himalayan salt or Real Salt for anything but great for making your own spice mixes (taco + chili, etc). If we ever don't have dried herbs we just use a drop (or a few!) of essential oils!
In general look for items that are free of wheat, soy, added sugar, carrageenan, MSG, sulfites, dairy, hydrogenated oils like corn, soy and canola. We don't have access to a Whole Foods or other health food store, so we order these from Thrive Market and save both time and money! (Think Whole Foods meets Costco!)
