HEALTHY WHOLE FOOD AND DRINKS
Use Real Plans to meal plan your way to wellness. It’s a Powerful Meal Planning Tool to help you eat whole food and make healthy dietary decisions for overcoming chronic illness.
Our favorite organic nutrient-dense boxed bone broth and soups for when you don’t have any homemade on hand or you are traveling. USE CODE FEASTING20 for 20% off your first order!
DIY plant-based nut and seed milk in 5 minutes! I used this gadget weekly to make our filler-free alternative milks. My favorite to make is sprouted hemp milk which is chock full of omega-3’s. USE CODE JENNIFER for $15 off an Almond Cow!
Get high-quality, grass-fed and finished, wild-caught and pastured animal proteins at U.S. Wellness Meats. This is our go-to when we can’t get meat from our local ranch. They also have healthy versions of hot dogs, pemmican and even beef jerky.
This is my favorite grass-fed chocolate protein powder to help with healthy joints, skin, hair and nails. I just add a scoop to my smoothies or make decadent hot cocoa with it.
This is my favorite grass-fed, metal, mercury, pesticide and herbicide-free collagen. They triple test! to help with healthy joints, skin, hair and nails. I use it in herbal coffee, tea, smoothies, sprouted oatmeal, and more! I also love their grass-fed gelatin. Use link below and code: FEASTINGONJOY for 10% off your order.
Coconut oil and dried coconut can often be contaminated with glyphosate. That’s why I buy my coconut oil and coconut products online from a highly trusted company that tests all their coconut products for glyphosate. I also LOVE that the type of coconut oil I buy does not taste heavily like coconut. That means I can use it in all of my dishes!
When trying to boost nutrition and increase iron levels, this is my whole-food go-to. I love these desiccated liver capsules that are from grass-fed and finished cattle. This is a wonderful option since I don’t like eating liver!
Sometimes having grass-fed and finished desiccated liver in powder form is helpful for adding nutrition to soups, smoothies and more. I LOVE this brand because it is triple-tested to be metal and contaminant free and comes from cattle raised in New Zealand. If you add a half scoop to a smoothie you won’t even taste it! Use link below and code: FEASTINGONJOY for 10% off your order.
If you are prone to oxalate kidney stones or need to stick to a low oxalate diet, sometimes vegetables become limited. I love adding this Dr. Cowan’s organic, superfood low oxalate powder to smoothies to increase low oxalate veggie intake.
This Manuka Honey is a staple that is always in my pantry. It’s free of glyphosate, herbicides, pesticides, non-gmo, raw and unpasteurized. It’s produced in New Zealand as well. We don’t use it on food except for the occasional dairy-free parfait, but we use it to boost our immune system by eating a tablespoon when our throat needs care, we have allergies, or we just need quick energy and immune boost. Manuka honey is a natural antibiotic and, in its raw state is a superfood powerhouse that we will never be without.
I order my healthy pantry staples online at this wonderful family-owned company. It has been a saving grace for sourcing whole food that is organic and non-GMO. They have drop points all over the country. Click below to see if there is a drop point near you. You can order once a week, twice a month, once or month, or whatever fits your needs and depending on how your drop schedules. I also get toiletries, home remedies, household items, and even survival items here!
This is my favorite organic greens to add to smoothies to increase my micronutrient status. It is one of the most nutrient-dense foods on the planet.
Spirulina contains over 100 nutrients, including high levels of vitamin B12, B complex, beta-carotene, iron, potassium, calcium, and magnesium. Spirulina is nearly a complete protein with eight of nine essential amino acids. It also contains gamma-linolenic acid (GLA), a brain-healthy fatty acid that usually only occurs in breast milk.
Chlorella is a green single-cell micro alga that grows naturally in fresh water. It gets its name from its very high concentration of Chlorophyll. Chlorella is a very popular food supplement throughout Asia. In fact, Japanese citizens consume more Chlorella per capita than Americans take vitamin C. Chlorella is an excellent detoxifying agent because it binds to heavy metals, pesticides, and other wastes and eliminates them from the body
This is a delicious, healthy option for whole food, Paleo meal delivery.
Make fermented food a part of your diet. It is essential for a healthy gut. This is my go-to company to get high-quality cultures to ferment my foods. They literally have everything!
Not all tea is created equal. It can be contaminated with heavy metals, molds, fungus, and even herbicides and pesticides. It can also have flavors and other cell-damaging ingredients. This is one of my favorite brands that is fully organic, highly tested and tastes amazing. You can read more about tea quality here. Use link below and code: JENNIFERB for 5% off your order.
A healthy gut equals a healthy immune system and a healthy body. One of the products I used to help heal my gut years ago was liposomal colostrum. This is my favorite brand because of how it is formulated to absorb the best and be free of any unhealthy contaminants.
I recommend these to all of my clients who want to build up their gut lining and rebalance their microbiome. These probiotics are therapeutic dose and because they are in powder form you can increase or decrease your dose incrementally as needed. I also love that there are 8 safe strains and no prebiotics for those who cannot tolerate that yet. They are what helped me heal my gut!
Do you like to get fun mail? Simply AIP subscription box is not only fun to receive in the mail but fun to give to someone as a gift too! This is a monthly subscription box that has AIP-friendly foods in it. Some of them aren’t even on the market yet!
For holidays I LOVE to frequent the Natural Candy Store. Since we never buy the nasty candy that lines the aisles of the big box grocery stores because of all the chemicals and dyes, we enjoy having an alternative place to shop online for fun candy. I love that I can search for specific dietary needs. This has been a wonderful company!
SUPPLEMENTS, HERBS, VITAMINS AND MINERALS
Ozone oils are my go-to for wound ointment and skin health like canker sores, gingivitis, acne and more. Additionally, I LOVE the tooth and gum support for keeping microorganisms in check on my teeth, gums, tongue and throat. Hemp oil is the strongest and olive oil is more mild. The tooth oil has a pleasant flavor to it and tastes really good. I also use ozone oils on my dog for skin health and oral care!
Magnesium deficiency is at an all-time high so anyway I can get more magnesium into my body, I do. I love spraying two pumps of this magnesium oil into a dollop of my non-toxic body lotion and rubbing it on my abdomen.
Magnesium is one of the top deficiencies in humans these days and it is responsible in so many metabolic processes. This is my favorite magnesium supplement because it has all 7 types of magensium in it which benefits ALL the processes in the body!
I don’t use or allow anything with fragrance into my home. Also, I only use products rated a 1/2 or A/B on EWG. Reducing toxins in the home and on the body is imperative for overall wellness. This is my favorite unscented body lotion that has only healthful ingredients. I love to add my favorite essential oils (see below) to it to fit my mood or needs.
Vitamin C can often be contaminated with heavy metal, come from China and be very hard to absorb. There are only a few brands of vitamin C I recommend and personally take. This liquid form is my favorite because it has no toxic fillers, is not from China and is highly bioavailable to your body.
Taking bitters 20 minutes before your meal is a key component to ensuring adequate stomach acid levels to digest your food. This is one type of bitters I love to use because it is alcohol free!
Mineral deficiency is prolific in our society and a simple way to increase natural mineral levels is to add some mineral drops into your water in the morning. These are my favorite drops because they are well rounded from the sea and help the body come back into balance minerally.
As a Functional Nutritional Therapy Practitioner, I offer you clinical and pharmaceutical-grade supplements from many high-quality brands at 15% off + free shipping for orders over $49! I also offer healing protocols you can access here. This is the dispensary my clients who work with me use, but I also offer it to my online followers.

Radiant Life is an awesome family-owned company that I have supported for years. I get many of my water filters, EMF protection, various food and vitamins and much more there. Their customer service is top-notch and the products they carry are high quality!
Not all herbal products are created equal which is why I searched high and low for a company that cares about quality, purity and potency. Earthley creates their products in small batches and only uses the highest quality, organic raw materials. I love SO many of their products that I use on a daily basis. Some pictured here are the Soothing Skin Balm, Good Night Lotion (helpful for sleep!), Lymphatic Cream for drainage, No More Yeast Salve, Deep Healing Skin Serum which is utterly amazing!, Black Drawing Salve Stick for bites and stings and their Detox Bath.

I stopped using toothpaste with glycerin in it over a year ago. This is my absolute favorite toothpaste, pulling rinse and mouthwash! The toothpaste is clay-based and has remineralizing herbs in it and pathogen fighting oils too. There is no fluoride, SLS, parabens, triclosan or toxic ingredients. My teeth and gums have never been healthier! Use link below and code: Feastingonjoy for 10% off your order.
CLEAN WATER PRACTITIONER PICKS
Your budget will determine how you can filter your water at home but here are three options we use and love.
This is an attachable shower filter that, before we had a whole house filter, we had on every shower head in our home. I noticed a marked difference in how the water felt and smelt when I used it.
This is a bathtub water ball filter that you can even travel with. It helps remove the neurotoxic, endocrine-disrupting chlorine from the water.
This is a countertop filter much like the Berkey but at a more affordable price. There are different sizes to choose from depending on your needs and the size of your family.
This is the whole house filter we have in our current home. We also use the water conditioning system with it. I highly recommend this filter since it gets EVERYTHING out of the water including pharmaceuticals, fluoride, and even mold and fungus!
HEALTHY HOUSEHOLD & DETOX
You can see above the water filtration systems we use and love but there are other aspects of your home that need detoxifying to create a healthy and safe environment for you.
Eliminate the electro-magnetic frequencies coming from your laptop with my favorite defender pad.
Gua Sha is super helpful for depression, anxiety, lymphatic drainage, insomnia, tinnitus, cardiovascular health, vascular health in general, pain reduction, digestion, and more. I use this set daily and love to pair it with my time in my infrared sauna. This set is made of TerraHertz which helps with electromagnetic vibrations to heal the body. Use link button below and code: JENNIFER for 10% off.
Ozone has been one of my most favorite detoxification therapies. I use it almost daily. I do nasal, rectal, oral and vaginal insufflations and they boost my immune system by oxygenating my body. This has been super helpful for fighting mold, viruses and bacteria as well. I also love to drink a cup full of ozonated water daily and use ozonated water in my neti pot.
We own this Infrared Sauna from Sunlighten (my favorite company). It has been an amazing tool for detoxification and feeling well despite Hashimoto’s. My husband enjoys it as well to keep his immune system in tip-top shape.
In times of creating a stash of healthy food for hard times, I have turned to my freeze dryer. I LOVE it! Not only can I freeze dry meals that I know the ingredients are high-quality and allergen-friendly, they also retain 96% of their nutrient status and can last up to 25 years! This is a staple tool in my household! I also love to make healthy snack food for travel and meals for camping with it.
This is the photon infrared light I use almost daily. I love that it is portable and I can travel with it when necessary. I love this for detox, cognitive improvement, cellular repair, skin rejuvenation, boosting my immune system, and stress reduction. It also has no EMFS!
Another handy detoxing tool I use daily is the lumiNIR. It’s awesome because it allows me to target specific areas of my body (like my thyroid) for tissue repair and rejuvenation using light frequencies. If you have aches, pains, skin issues or slow detox, this tool is a great one for your arsenal.
Castor oils packs are the perfect relaxing detoxification tool to use to gently reduce the burden on your liver. I love being able to get a kit with all the supplies. Doing these 3-4 times a week are helpful for feeling well.
ONLINE LAB TESTING
Doctors don’t always comply by ordering the actual lab tests you need. That’s when I turn to online labs for testing.
You can get all sorts of different lab tests here from thyroid to women’s hormones. It’s a great choice!
Purity, potency, no brokers, and indigenous sourcing that gives a farmer a livelihood all matter to me when choosing a brand of essential oils. I have used doTERRA oils for almost a decade and they have empowered my life as a mom, wife, chronic illness warrior and practitioner. FeastingOnJoy Oils (my tribe) will change your life.
Using essential oils on or around pets is safe. However, there are certain oils to be careful with, specific ways to use the essential oils and the type of animals is important to consider. This online course will help you navigate all you need to know about essential oils and pets.
PRACTITIONER PICKS ONLINE COURSES & PROGRAMS FOR HEALING
Online courses and programs are an excellent way to learn on your own time from your home and still experience big victories! Here are some of my top recommendations.
Wellspring™ is a comprehensive membership program that guides Christian women to ditch chronic symptoms and live life without limitations. Through videos, workbooks, live coaching and clinic calls, we work in the areas of mindset, using food as medicine and designing a non-toxic lifestyle. Plus, we have a thriving online community for accountability and support all along the way.
The Gut Renew online course will help you overhaul your digestion and repair any increased intestinal permeability you may have through holistic and natural means.
To become your own advocate on your healing journey, books are a powerful resource. Here I share my favorite places to get affordable books and a few specific favorite books I have.
Thrift Books is my number one resource for affordable books. They are so generous with book credits that I am able to get many books for free with points I accrue. I also love that I can get both new and used books and for the used books choose what condition I would like them in.
Though this is shared as a Nutritional Status “Cheat Sheet” it is so much more than a sheet. Chris Masterjohn Ph.D outdid himself! I would categorize this as a book because there is a wealth of knowledge about which nutrients affect different parts of your body and cause different symptoms. This is one of my go-to resources for information about vitamins and minerals.
There are many good books out there about using essential oils for wellness. This is one of my favorites because it comes from my friend Dr. Eric Zielinski who is a public health researcher and an avid user of essential oils.
My health and wellness library is stocked full of helpful healing books. This is one of them that I recommend for anyone struggling with remitting symptoms of chronic illness.
ONLINE PRACTITIONER BUSINESS TOOLS
Building your business and/or practice online is essential these days. JB Well-Being, Inc. (my company) has been online for many years doing business as Wellspring™, Feasting On Joy, Feasting On Joy Wellness, FeastingOnJoy Oils, and Root Cause Christian Coaching. Here I want to share my top favorite essential tools (and courses) for creating a successful business online.
This is my favorite tool that makes videos searchable so someone can type in a term they want to learn about and whala! Searchie finds every instance of that term in the video, tells you where it is (so you don’t have to scrub the video) and gives you the transcripts for it!
Searchie is all your content needs in one tool: content management and delivery, video and audio hosting, video and audio search, screen capture and recording, multi-language transcription, analytics, audiences, content repurposing, automation and integrative.
This is the email service I use for keeping in touch with my subscribers. I create email newsletters, sign-up forms, landing pages, integrations and automation here. It makes doing business online simple and easy. The platform and interface are super intuitive and the customer service is top-notch.
I use lead pages for beautiful landing pages, selling products and optimizing and growing my online business. It is one of my favorite platforms for making online business doable and well as attractive from a design standpoint. I also love the analytics they offer.
If you use Instagram you will notice that you can only share one live link in your bio. With Tap Bio you are able to share many screens, links and products from your Instagram bio. It’s a favorite app of mine!
