- Coconut Aminos: This is a wonderful alternative to soy sauce in recipes.
- Canned Salmon: I like Wild Planet’s Pink Salmon, or this salmon from Vital Choice.

- Almond Flour
- Arrowroot Flour
- Enjoy Life Chocolate Chips: Semi-sweet chips or Dark Chocolate Morsels.

- The New Primal Jerky Sticks: I also LOVE this jerky. The texture and flavors are amazing.
- Tanka Bars and Epic Bars: Also a favorite, though a bit pricier. But they are goooood.

For the Home

- Dr. Bronner’s Liquid Castille Soap: Like Branch Basics, this can be used for SO many things (just do a Google search!), but I mainly dilute it to use as liquid hand soap. One bottle lasts me awhile!
- Organic Cotton and Kapok-filled Pillows (set of two!): Since most of us spend so much time breathing against a pillow, I wanted to make sure ours were made of natural and organic fibers. Yes, that means shelling out more money. I’m very budget-conscious, but the health investment is worth it to me in this case. And 3 years later, we still like ours!

- Lodge Cast Iron Skillet
