For The Home
We are bombarded with toxins in our environment on a daily basis, that is why I try to keep my home as toxin free as possible by avoiding fragrance and using more natural products. Here are just a few of my favorites.
The chiliPAD is comprised of a hydro-powered mattress pad, thermal regulating control unit(s) and a remote making it perfect for one or two sleepers! Keep your bed between 55-115°F (13-46°C), helping encourage quality, restorative sleep.
When I tested positive for mold illness we got an EnviroKlenz® Mobile Air System with UV Light. This unit combines Advanced technology for toxic and noxious chemical and odor removal with HEPA filtration and ultraviolet germicidal radiation (UVC) to remove airborne particulates and allergens and inhibit the growth of captured microorganisms (such as bacteria, mold, and viruses).
These light blocking glasses are used to help prevent light-induced melatonin suppression that can occur from using electronic devices. I try to wear these when watching TV, using computers, smartphones or any electronic devices in the evenings.
For years we have used the Berkey water filtration systems to provide clean drinking water. Consider the fluoride filters if your area supplies fluoridated water. When we upgraded to the Big Berkey we gave our Berkey light to our daughter in Florida where the water smells like sulphur, now her water is much cleaner.
We use salt lamps instead of night lights to prevent disrupting melatonin production. The negative ions released by a Salt Lamp help you to relax somewhat like the feeling of being at the beach. Research shows, the more negative ions in our environments, the better we breathe, feel, sleep and maintain health.
Our bodies were designed to squat, not sit, when pooping, therefore going number two on a modern toilet does not allow the kink in your colon. Using a stool for your stool can truly help you become an efficiency expert at this every day (I hope) activity.

For years I’ve appreciated the concentrated scent free powder that rinses completely without leaving a residue on my clothes. Completely biodegradable and HE approved.
In the amount of time I have saved by having a robotic vacuum, I can read a few chapters of our favorite series to my kids. Even our Mold Inspector uses and recommends a Roomba for reducing mold spores and dust.

All of my beauty advice comes from my beauty guru Macey! She graduated from Aveda Institute and currently works as an aesthetician. She spends a lot of time on researching safe ingredients so that she can recommend the most natural and effective products for you!

My daughter works as a cosmetologist at a very nice spa, and this came highly recommended.

Easier than taking a supplement, I keep a jar of magnesium bath flakes beside the tub so no matter who is having a soak they can also be absorbing this crucial mineral that over 80% of Americans are deficient in.
Transdermal option for getting your required levels of magnesium. I also use this as one ingredient when I make body butter.
Soak away aches, pains, and muscle fatigue while increasing your magnesium levels with epsom salts. Epsom salts are also great for the yard and gardening!
My choice for a raw, vegan, and gluten free holistic conditioner formula packed with nature’s most potent trace minerals and naturally grown botanicals. This formula provides deep moisture and detangling with ingredients that feeds the hair and scalp not to mention it is sulfate free, synthetic chemical free, paraben free, and paleo friendly.

In The Kitchen
Seems like I spend a lot of time in the kitchen making food for my family. Here are a few of my favorite products for saving time and creating healthier and tastier meals.
So much easier to clean than pulling out my Vitamix. I use this for making creamed soups and salad dressings, whipping heavy cream for toppings, mixing bulletproof coffee, making homemade mayo and lots more.
These are the containers I use in my own pantry and the ones I recommend when I am doing a pantry makeover for a client.
Made from clay, water and various inorganic minerals like Kaolinite, Mullite Petalite, Cordierite and refractory clay that are found in the earth’s crust; it’s safe, non-toxic and contains no metals, lead or cadmium. for more info https://www.thatorganicmom.com/nonstick-cookware/
My Kids favorite snacks are usually things we have found in this wonderful red box. We have shared several unboxing videos on the TOM Youtube channel if you’d like to get a glimpse of how much is packed in a Love with Food box. Several sizes available as well as gluten free options.
Where I purchase specialty items. Perfect for if you don’t live near a lot of health food stores, etc. Thrive Market seeks to make healthy living easy, affordable, and accessible for every American family. Having the membership saves money.
When your nice glassware goes missing at work you opt for a less expensive BPA free option. These are the containers I often do meal prep for my husband in.
For those who refuse to use ANY type of plastic these jars are fantastic in the pantry. I have several sets to store beans, rice, and other dried goods.
If you de-cluttter and organize you might end up with all of your appliances under the counters however for those you keep on the counter, this appliance caddy makes them easier to get to. I keep my coffee pot on one so that I can easily pull it out to pour in the water.
If I could have only one convenience product this would be it. I was always afraid of pressure cookers before. Now with this Instant Pot, I make my own homemade bone broth on a weekly basis. Great for quickly preparing dried beans and lots more. Couldn’t live without it!
Steamed eggs, veggies, cakes, yogurt and lots more can be made in the instant pot with the right accessories!
For years we have used Berkey water filtration systems to provide clean drinking water. We’ve had the Big Berkey and the Berkey light we passed down to our oldest daughter. Consider the fluoride filters if your area supplies fluoridated water.
This water bottle kept my daughter and I from getting sick from water born bacteria while traveling through China. I gave one to my daughter so she could filter the water fountain water at school as well.
Losing weight isn’t always easy or straightforward but here are some of the products I use to maintain my weight.
Did you give up Cereal because of all the sugar and empty carbs? Catalina Crunch is a ZERO sugar, gluten-free, low carb solution to your breakfast dilemma.
The Flat Belly Plan will help if you have Candida, Parasites, or Leaky Gut by using an elimination process. It’s really an educational tool that can help with weight loss.

A nutrition & fitness tracking website which is very useful for calculating macros. For a while, I used MyFitnessPal but the nutrition information for foods would be off so often that I had to switch to something more reliable.
We drink collagen powder each morning and night. This is our favorite brand, pasture raised, grass fed, non-GMO, Kosher, soluble in cold liquids, anti-aging, builds strong hair and nails, keeps bones healthy, supports joint health, helps maintain a healthy weight, Whole 30 approved, gluten free and dairy free.
I’ve been drinking oolong tea since I returned from China. It helps with weight loss and detoxification.
Some people’s love language is Gift Giving, which is true of several of my friends as well as one of my children. I like to give meaningful and useful gifts. Here are a few that I am crazy about.

The quality of my videos and audio went up 100% when I started using a professional mic. Easy to use and produces a very clear sound perfect for voiceovers and podcasts.
Trying to hold a camera still while filming is no easy task. This tripod helps to make the videos more stable with less shaking.
This mic is perfect for when we are doing a cooking video as it isolates the sound to the speaker instead of capturing all the sounds in the kitchen!
I use my laptop for working on the go, for working at the coffee shop on my “day off” and when it comes to blogging, I couldn’t do without it to be honest.
This computer is used by everyone working on my site, editing videos, etc. I regret not switching to apple products much sooner!
This is the first camera I purchased for use on my blog. I still take most of my food photos with this camera it works great and for a great price.
I upgraded to this camera for my videos because I wanted an external mic, which the Sony does not have. Do yourself a favor, get the kit, not just the camera.
An invaluable tool for bloggers. You don’t want to store everything on your computer! Dropbox is great because you can just login from anywhere and access your files.
Little Jobs for $5 – Stuff like removing the background from a photo, drawings, Graphic Design, Music, Audio, Programming. It’s a great place to get little gigs done! It’s like having your own personal virtual assistant. The new intro in my YouTube video was purchased on Fiverr.
