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 collagen to help with healthy joints, skin, hair and nails. I just add a scoop to my smoothies or warm drinks. I also LOVE the collagen veggie blend as a way to increase my fruit and vegetable intake. It’s perfect in smoothies and homemade ice cream!
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!
If you are prone to 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.
I order my healthy pantry staples online at 50% below retail. It has been a saving grace for continued healthy eating and being able to be a homeschool mom, wife of almost two decades and the CEO of three businesses. You can get anything here for any type of diet you follow – gluten free, Whole30, Keto, AIP, Paleo and more!
This is a delicious, healthy option for meal delivery. Try Paleo on the Go.
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.
A healthy gut equals a healthy immune system and 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!
Divine food delivered to your door is where Balanced Bites meal delivery service comes in. The meals to choose from are both healthy and delicious. If you need some help eating whole food during a busy or stressful time of life, I recommend checking out Balance Bites to meet your needs.
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
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.
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 have the ability to offer you clinical-grade supplements from many high-quality brands at 15% off + free shipping for orders over $49! This is the dispensary my clients who work with me use, but I also offer it to my online followers. Create your free account here and order any supplements you need.
Radiant Life is an awesome family-owned company which 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 tinctures are created equal which is why I searched high and low for a company which cares about quality, purity and potency. Wise Woman Herbals is the company that has been preferred by healthcare professionals since 1989. I use and recommend WWH for safe, therapeutic grade herbal tinctures for my clients, my family and my followers.
Glutathione is notoriously hard to absorb and can be of low quality. I enjoy taking this liposomal, highly-bioavailable glutathione daily. Its taste isn’t the best but I notice a positive difference in my energy levels and overall health when taking it.
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 a more affordable price. There are different sizes to choose from depending on your needs and 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.
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.
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 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.
It’s fun to have your own glass bottles, tinctures, carrying cases and storage items on hand when using essential oils. I get all my supplies at Got Oil Supplies because they have a great selection and awesome prices.
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.
The Best of The Essential Oils Revolution Summit teaches in-depth on the various ways to use essential oils for health and wellness. With more than 20 top health experts and doctors, I absolutely loved attending this summit and I know you’ll love it too.
PRACTITIONER PICKS ONLINE COURSES
Online courses 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.
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.
This is one of my favorite summits all about Hashimoto’s and how to naturally remit it. There are dozens of health experts who talk in-depth about practical things you can do to get your life back. It should be in everyone’s toolbox who struggles with Hashimoto’s.
Being your own advocate when you have any chronic illness, but especially Hashimoto’s is crucial. This program will teach you extensively about the facets you need to address in order to find true healing.
Cancer doesn’t mean a death sentence. God has created our body to heal itself given the right circumstances and when we remove interference. Learn how to beat cancer God’s way through this online course.
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 first recommendation is hands down the most important course you could ever take to create or uplevel your online business. It’s called Elite Blog Academy. It’s what took my business from earning nothing to an abundant following and earning a valuable income. It only opens once a year in March so be sure to get on the waiting list to save your spot!
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.
