Food, Services, Fun Things I Love & Recommend

This page is all about the stuff I love. These are services I use or have used that I find healthy and absolutely love. I am affiliated with some of these, and not with others. That means that some of the links below, if you use them, and purchase, I do get a little compensation. I do not recommend or share any products or services I have not tried or love.

Thrive Market

This is an amazing source of very healthy, clean, and primarily organic products. These are pantry staple type of items (with options to choose fresh meats). I use this service to get me pantry items that I cannot buy at my local farmer’s market. They have a free month trial, then a yearly subscription. But you can get free shipping on any order of $49. If you use pantry items monthly – which you should if you are cooking real food – this is a great way to avoid mass market grocery stores and get access to clean, and CHEAPER THAN MAJOR STORE, organic foods.

I absolutely loved HelloFresh. Although I no longer use the service it was THE THING that got me cooking, well, and learning about portions and servings, and eating cleaner food. I was overwhelmed by meal planning, and cooking when I started out with clean eating and HelloFresh got me on the right track.
