When combined with exercise, a healthy diet can help you lose weight, lower your cholesterol level, and improve the way your body functions on a daily basis. But, making smart choices doesn’t happen by accident. You need to buy more organic products including fruits and vegetables and then prep and plan out your healthy meals.

Some people think that living a whole food lifestyle is expensive and difficult. Not so! Try these healthy food products that I use instead of processed food and stop buying the chips, soda, and other junk. You’re body will recognize these as real food and thank you!


Bob’s Red Mill Arrowroot Starch Flour, 16 oz

whole-fresh-clean-bobs-arrowrootNote: No artificial preservatives and no gluten.  It works as a neutral flavor starch provider to add smooth thickness to baked goods and to thicken gravies. I’ve replaced my wheat flour with arrowroot. It’s gluten-free so helps in its ability for you to better digestion of food. For thickening: Arrowroot is best used at the end of your cooking just before boiling, as continued heating will cause it to lose its thickening ability. For gravies and sauces: Add Arrowroot Starch to a small amount of cool liquid first, then whisk into hot liquids.


Nature’s Way Extra Virgin Organic Coconut Oil, 32-Ounce

Coconut-OilNote: As a supplement, I take 1 tablespoon 1-4 times daily or mix it in my Going Green Smoothie. My favorite way to use it is I put it in my coffee every morning instead of milk or cream. I also use it in salad dressings, in place of butter, margarine, shortening or other cooking oils for baking or frying.  I keep a jar in the bathroom and use it as a moisturizing lotion, especially under the eyes at night. You can also place the jar in warm water to liquefy, then massage small amounts onto the skin.Place jar in warm water to liquefy then apply 2 teaspoons to hair 1 to 2 hours before washing. There’s a million uses for this stuff and I love it!.


Thai Kitchen Organic Coconut Milk, Premium, First Pressing, 13.66 Ounce (Pack of 6)


Note: Thai Kitchen Coconut Milk is harvested from the first pressing of fresh, ripe coconut meat. It’s All Natural, Gluten Free, Vegan and Dairy Free. These premium coconuts are naturally processed, yielding a delicious milk that is mixed only with filtered water and a hint of all natural guar gum from the seeds of the guar plant. This makes an excellent substitute for milk or cream in recipes.


La Tourangelle Avocado Oil, 16.9 Ounce Tin

Avocado-OilNote: The avocado pulp is first expeller-pressed in a manner similar to extra virgin olive oil, then lightly filtered. The result is a beautiful, olive-green oil that’s pretty inexpensive. When I saute vegetables with garlic, I like to use a mixture of oils including some EVOO, Avocado Oil, and Coconut Oil for a nice flavor. Perfect for sauteing, baking, dipping, blending into a dressing/sauce, or drizzling on a finished dish. The fats in avocado are mostly resistant to heat-induced oxidation, making it a healthy and safe choice for cooking.


Jovial Organic Gluten Free Brown Rice Pasta, Egg Tagliatelle, 9 Ounce


Note: Jovial by far makes the best tasting, best textured gluten-free brown rice pasta on the market. I have tried several other brands and nothing compares. Try it on your family and see if they even notice the difference. Although not Paleo, there is no need to feel like you are sacrificing any longer when eating gluten free.


Tinkyada Fettuccini Brown Rice Pasta (6×14 Oz)


Note: This Gluten Free Fettuccini Pasta is made from quality rice, stone-ground and formed to gourmet class. An ultimate in the enjoyment of pasta. It cooks like any regular white pasta.

Jovial Organic Gluten Free Brown Rice Pasta, Lasagna, 9 Ounce


Note: Jovial by far makes the best tasting, best textured gluten-free brown rice pasta on the market. I have tried several other brands and nothing compares.

These noodles require no boiling before baking.  Use these to make my classic lasagna recipe with extra vegetables your family will never know!



Healthworks Raw Certified Organic Cacao Powder, 1 lb

whole-fresh-clean-organic-cacao-powderNote: I love this brand.  It’s rich chocolate goes well in smoothies, desserts, and other recipes. Cacao also contains more antioxidant flavonoids than red wine, green tea and blueberries. Great source of magnesium, calcium, zinc, iron, copper and potassium.

Whip up a frozen banana with 1 Tsp of cacao powder for a quick ice cream!


Pure Pork Lard, Free Range & Pasture Raised, 14oz

whole-fresh-clean-pure-pork-lardNote: Just like grandma used to use! 100% Paleo free Rrnge pasture raised pork fat with no transfat, no artificial ingredients, no added hormones, no preservatives. If you’re going back to how your grandparents cooked and ate, I recommend trying this. Make sure you stay away from ANY fat that is hydrogenated, and go with the old fashioned, real food fats. Your body recognizes this as real food and dietary fat does not make you fat. Perfect for baking (especially pie crusts), roasting, searing, pan-frying, sauteing.


Bob’s Red Mill Oats Steel Cut, 24-Ounce (Pack of 4)

whole-fresh-clean-steel-cut-oatsNote: This oatmeal won the World Championship Porridge Competition in Scotland called the “Golden Spurtle.” Its great to be able to have something that is an example of the ‘best quality’ available and is also inexpensive. Oatmeal is a super food and it goes perfect with a bunch of other super foods like cranberries, blueberries, walnuts, pistachios, etc. I make a large pot and when it’s done, I put it in muffin tins and freeze it.  When they’re frozen, I take them out of the tin and store them in a zip bag and then always have them on hand.


YS Organic Bee Farms Certified Organic Raw Honey 100% Unprocessed, Unpasteurized – Kosher 32oz 2 Lbs 

whole-fresh-clean-raw-unfiltered-honeyNote: When I’m  away and not near my local beekeeper, I use this brand of organic honey. This organic honey is 100% pure, natural, unpasteurized and unfiltered, fresh from healthy beehives. The results produce an energy packaged honey with the high levels of enzymes, vitamins, minerals and antioxidants, full beneficial factors as a functional whole food. I use honey every day in a Apple Cider Vinegar and Cinnamon tea to help control my blood glucose levels and acid reflux.


Viva Labs Organic Coconut Flour: Non-GMO, and Gluten-Free, 4 lb Bag

whole-fresh-clean-coconut-flourNote: Unbleached and grain free, this flour uses the pulp of organic tropical coconuts, hand-picked fresh from the Philippines. The pulp is dried and then finely ground into a soft, mildly sweet powder preserving its nutrients. Viva Labs Coconut Flour is sourced directly from farmers in compliance with fair trade practices and is certified organic and non-GMO. I use this instead of white wheat flour in pancakes and other recipes. Substitute 1/3 cup of coconut flour when recipes call for 1 cup of wheat flour, while doubling the amount of eggs and adjusting liquid. 


The Organic Coffee Co. Ground, Breakfast Blend, 12 Ounce (Pack of 2)

whole-fresh-clean-organic-coffeeNote: I love the taste of this coffee and how it’s grown. It’s 100% certified organic coffee. The coffee tastes good because they go directly to the source to buy them from premier organic farms, and they grow our own organic coffee on our own unique and bio-diverse farms in Panama. The company stands for premium, sustainable, fair and direct trade coffee and tea at a great price. It’s grown without chemical fertilizers, pesticides, or herbicides.


The Republic of Tea, British Breakfast Tea, 50-Count

whole-fresh-clean-british-teaNote: A savory mixture of China, India, Ceylon and Kenya leaves that are not as acidic as other teas, which I appreciate on those days when I can’t drink coffee due to stomach upset issues. This brand is slightly more expensive, but an awesome cup of tea and is worth every penny. I am a plain tea lover–never really got into the flavored teas or coffee. The British Breakfast is a staple for me. Read this article here on the Health Benefits of Tea.


Better Than Bouillon Organic Beef Base, Reduced Sodium – 16 oz

whole-fresh-clean-better-than-bouillon-beefNote: This is excellent to use with beef stews, gravy, and soups when you need to kick the taste level up a notch, instead of using more salt. It’s made with 95% certified organic ingredients. Being organic and low sodium just makes me feel better about eating food I’ve made with it. It tastes great the way it is, but is also very good with a little garlic in it. You will never go back to regular beef bouillon once you try this stuff.


Better Than Bouillon Organic Chicken Base, Reduced Sodium – 16 oz

whole-fresh-clean-better-than-bouillon-chickenNote: I should have listed this first on my list. This is the one item I could not live without in my kitchen!

whole-fresh-clean-chamomile-teaNote: Chamomile from Egypt’s Nile Valley is revered for its large floral buds, light aroma, and pale golden color.

Aromatic herbs such as lemongrass, galangal (Thai ginger) and fresh green chilis are blended with fragrant spices for the perfect balance of flavors. This is vegetarian. Ingredients are simply spices and salt: Green chili, garlic, lemongrass, thai ginger, salt, shallot, spices, kaffir lime.Use as a stir-fry seasoning, a soup base, or with coconut milk to create a delicious Thai curry or add it to your favorite marinade. It’s not that hot and spicy as much as it is flavorful. I don’t follow the directions on the bottle but use the whole bottle for my Thai Chicken and Vegetable recipe.

It’s certified gluten free by GFCO, almonds are a non-gmo product, certified Kosher and King Arthur Flour is a 100% Employee-Owned Company. If you are trying almond flour for the first time, it does have a different texture than white flour but the taste is there. King Arthur Flour super finely ground almond flour blends well into sweet and savory baked goods. Great for elegant cakes, cookies, and muffins. Adding almond flour adds protein, fiber, and beneficial fats to whatever you’re baking.


Carmelina Brands, Italian Whole Peeled Tomatoes In Puree, 28 Ounce (Pack of 6)

whole-fresh-clean-san-marzano-tomatoesNote: Another MUST for my pantry! This price is cheaper than my local grocery store too! When you’re making any tomato dish, like these Green Beans with Tomatoes and Garlic, you just have to use these types of canned tomatoes or the dish could taste acidic. Any other kind of tomato just doesn’t have the mild flavor that San Marzano brings to the table. This brand is great as there’s no added preservatives like salt, sugars, calcium chloride, citric acid or edta, simply tomatoes and tomato puree.


Wild Planet Albacore Tuna, No Salt Added, 3 Ounce

 Wild Planet is committed to providing the finest tasting sustainably caught seafood while supporting the conservation of wild marine ecosystems. 100% sustainably caught using pole and line fishing methods, Wild Planet offers a line of delicious and versatile tuna selections. I like this one because it contains no added sea salt. It is great to be able to buy tuna without any additives and without excessive salt. I would have liked some salt, but the only choice seems to be no salt or more salt than necessary. As I’m working to remove the toxins from my body, I also like that it’s available in a pouch instead of BPA lined cans.


Wild Planet Wild Alaska Pink Salmon, 6 Ounce

whole-fresh-clean-canned-salmonNote: I have tried many brands of salmon over the years and this is the best product because of the quality and integrity of the fish. Plus, there’s no SOY or other additives. It’s just fish and salt, which is exactly what I want. I know, this product is relatively expensive, but purchasing sustainably harvested seafood is important and worth the extra cost. I love that it is boneless and skinless and the cans open without a can opener! It’s really easy to bring a can of salmon when you travel and add it to the top of my salad.


Coconut Secret Organic Raw Coconut Aminos Soy-Free Seasoning Sauce-8 Oz

  Another staple I always have on hand in the kitchen and the only safe alternative to soy sauce. This is exactly like soy sauce without Genetically Modified (GMO) Soy. Those who are allergic to soy, or just prefer to avoid soy will be thrilled to be able to enjoy sushi and other Asian dishes again. A little bit sweeter than the typical soy products, but the possibilities outweigh the downsides. Plus, it has 65% less sodium than soy sauce, is 100% organic, gluten free, non-GMO and no MSG! As a condiment it is nearly identical in taste to soy sauce except maybe not as salty. You may have to use more than you would soy sauce.


Imagine Organic Free Range Chicken Broth, 16 Fl Oz

Organic Raw Shredded Coconut – 2 Lbs – Unsweetened – All Natural, Non-GMO From Green Bulk

whole-fresh-clean-organic-shredded-raw-coconutNote:  This is the best priced organic shredded raw coconut currently available. I happen to think it makes the best whole organic coconut milk. Follow my recipe under Breakfast, it’s quite easy.  This is medium cut & organic. It’s nice over ice-cream, mixed into mashed root veggies, and any other way you like your coconut. I love throwing it on everything from salad, steel cut oatmeal, ice cream made from frozen banana’s, and my green protein smoothies every morning. It’s real coconut! It’s raw! And, it’s a good price!


Trader Joe’s 21 Season Salute (2 pack)


Note: Trader Joe’s 21 Seasoning Salute is a smooth blend of onion, black pepper, celery seed, cayenne pepper, parsley, basil, marjoram, bay leaf, oregano, thyme, savory, rosemary, cumin, mustard, coriander, garlic, carrot, orange peel, tomato, lemon juice and lemon oil. Look at that! You can read and know each ingredient! Excellent! The seasonings are blended in such a way that each flavor complements the others, as well as the dishes to which you add them. Leave the other spices out and add 21 Seasoning Salute to a vinaigrette, burgers, or add a dash (or several) to soups, sauces and dips. You’ll love using this instead of salt!


100% Certified Organic Pea Protein Powder 1 lb (454 grams) 

whole-fresh-clean-pea-protein-powderNote:  If you’re looking for an certified, organic dairy-free, non-GMO, plant-based protein powder, this is the one for you. It’s a delicious vegan protein powder perfect for smoothies & shakes. Pea protein is a quality vegetarian alternative to whey, soy or other protein products as it doesn’t cause the discomforting gassiness and bloating often experienced with those others. This is an easy-to-digest alternative when added to my homemade coconut milk recipe. Reasons why I like it: free of everything other than simply 100% organic pea protein, no additives or fillers, no sugar, no flavoring. I mix it with spinach, strawberries, chia seeds and coconut milk. 


Otto’s Naturals – Cassava Flour

 whole-fresh-clean-ottos-cassava-flourNote: I’m hooked on this new gluten-free paleo flour. Otto’s Cassava Flour is unlike anything your kitchen has ever experienced. Cassava (also known as yuca) is a root vegetable that when dried and ground (in this case using Otto’s proprietary preparation) becomes a delicious, gluten and grain-free wheat alternative. It is an amazing, grain-free replacement for wheat flour and can be used as a 1:1 substitute in countless recipes. Foods made with Otto’s Cassava Flour do not have that familiar dry or “alternative flour” taste or texture that often comes with gluten-free flours. In fact, many users comment that baked goods made with Otto’s are indistinguishable from their wheat based counterparts in taste and texture.


Nikki’s Coconut Butter


Note:  Get ready for your next new healthy addiction! One of the challenges with Paleo, and most diets, is there aren’t a lot of snack foods that are compatible with the diet. Nikki’s Coconut Butter makes fun, flavored coconut butters that you can enjoy guilt free! Nikki’s Coconut Butter is gluten and dairy free and made with organic coconut! So you can enjoy it all you want and still feel great! Simply enjoy by spreading it over your favorite fruit, in a smoothie, blended into coffee, or by the spoonful straight from the jar!
