Santa Cruz Lemon Juice- Kitchen Hack! Instead of running to the store every time a recipe calls for fresh squeezed lemon juice, I just use this! It’s the perfect substitute and time saver!
Spice World Organic Minced Garlic - Another time saver in the kitchen! Who says you need a garlic press?!
Coconut Aminos - This is a great healthy alternative for soy sauce, especially if you have food allergies. Coconut Aminos is soy, wheat, and gluten free. It also has less sodium than soy sauce. Add this to your pantry ASAP!
Arrow Root Powder - Another great substitute! Substitute arrowroot powder for cornstarch. It has a more neutral taste and hardly adds any flavor to dishes in comparison to corn starch.
2 teaspoons Arrowroot Flour = 1 tablespoon Cornstarch (3 teaspoons Cornstarch)
1 tablespoon to 1 cup of liquid, when used as a thickening agent.
Apple Cider Vinegar - I use this for a several things! I use it on rashes, wounds, and infections for healing. I use it for all of my cooking when vinegar is called for. I take a shot of it in the morning to get the gastric juices amped to promote digestion. I add it to left over bones in a crockpot with water to make bone broth. I like this brand because it has the live cultures intact giving it additional health benefits over pasteurized vinegar. Make the switch!
Coconut Oil - I use coconut oil not only in my cooking, but on my body. I substitute oils in baking recipes with coconut oil as a healthier cooking option. Coconut is a great oil for medium heat cooking (up to 400 degrees) on the stovetop.
Avocado Oil - This oil is a great high heat cooking oil (up to 500 degrees).
Toasted Sesame Oil - I love the flavor this adds to all of my Asian inspired dishes! Add to stir fry or whip up a salad dressing with this toasted nutty goodness!
Duck Fat - This is a great cooking fat. Like bacon fat, you can keep and reuse. Duck fat has the most monounsaturated fats (healthy fats) than any other animal fat.
Maple Syrup - Use this to top your breakfast delights or substitute for sugar in your baking. Maple syrup is a great substitute! I personally love to substitute maple syrup for brown sugar in my baking. Keep in mind, maple syrup is a very concentrated sweetener, so a little goes a LONG way!
1 cup of brown sugar = 3/4 cup of maple syrup
Popsicle Molds - My daughter is ALL about popsicles, but I am not all about all the added sugars and colors in grocery store popsicles…so I make my own. By making my own popsicles, I control how much sugar I put into them and I can even blend some spinach into her berry popsicles for added health benefits. These popsicle molds are super easy and convenient!
Milk Frother - I love to add all sorts of healthy stuff to my morning coffee and this handy little gadgets allows me the opportunity to do so without waking up the entire house! Super powerful, quiet, and convenient this little gizmo lets me blend my favorite additives (grass-fed butter, MCT oil, coconut milk, maca powder, collagen peptides, etc.) into my coffee with ease. Plus, it's super compact so I can take it ANYWHERE!
Spice Tins - I LOVE THESE TINS! These are a great way to keep your spices and kitchen organized and also make finding the right spice a breeze! No more digging through tons of spice containers for the right one.
Toddler Kitchen Tools - If you’ve seen my social media, you know my toddler is helping in the kitchen. This set was a great addition to our kitchen! They work well yet are easier and safer for her little hands. Plus she feels so special having her OWN knife and peeler!
