One of the most challenging aspects of making healthy lifestyle change is finding trustworthy products. Many products in supermarkets today lack transparency in how they are created, contain harmful additives, antibiotics, or pesticides, or are nutrient-poor due to low quality agricultural practices.
But our health demands higher standards. As a part of my mission to empower you to live a healthy, happy, and long life, I want to highlight companies that have earned my vote.
ButcherBox is my preferred source of healthy, high-quality meat. All ButcherBox beef is sourced from grass-fed and finished farms, which results in a leaner, more nutritious cut of meat.
Dry Farm Wines
While I do not recommend drinking excessive amounts of alcohol, red wine in moderation can be a brain-healthy choice. While I was researching what constitutes a “healthy” wine, I learned that the FDA allows for 76 artificial additives to be included in conventional wines. It turns out the labeling requirements for wine are among the most opaque for consumers, so researching the company who you purchase your wine from is very important.
PS: It tastes better too! A study out of UCLA that reviewed more than 74,000 different bottles of wine found that natural and organic wines score significantly higher than conventional wines on a taste test.
Kettle & Fire
Bone broth is a superfood that has largely disappeared from our diets. Kettle & Fire bone broth is a superb source of collagen, a protein that supports healthy skin, reduces inflammation, improves arthritis and joint health, and strengthens the gut’s protective lining.
