Get your FREE E-Book: 10 Tips To Detox Your Mind & Body

While there are tons of healthy options at your local health food markets, there are some great products that you can only find online.  The internet is also a great place to save money on items that you regularly keep in stock.  Here are some of our favorite pantry staples from the web.

Health Warrior Chia Bars

I don’t go anywhere without a chia bar on me.  We recommend eating every 2-3 hours, and these little bars are the perfect snack to keep your metabolism up between meals.  They are packed with antioxidants, omega 3’s, fiber and plant-based protein.  These bars come in a variety of flavors to satisfy your tastes. Coconut is my personal favorite, but they are all pretty good.  Health Warrior’s Chia Bars are gluten-, dairy-, and soy-free, and 100% vegan.

If you are not a huge fan of chia, Manitoba Harvest Hemp Heart bars are a great alternative.  Made with Hemp Hearts, organic sweeteners and other tasty ingredients, you can feel good about snacking on-the-go.  Available in 3 delicious flavors:  Apple Cinnamon, Chocolate and Vanilla!  Hemp is an easily digestible, complete plant-based protein that will keep you satisfied.

Bulletproof Protein Bars

I am so happy that Bulletproof came out with these bars.  If you are following a low carb diet, these bars are a must.  They are crafted with Bulletproof ‘s Upgraded Collagen and Brain Octane to support digestive health, glowing skin, flexible joints, and healthy bones.  These bars are not only delicious, but will keep you full and focused for hours.

Yes, you can have chocolate without having sugar!  Bulletproof Chocolate Fuel Bars are made from organic, raw Upgraded Chocolate Powder and Cacao Butter.  Sweetened with non-GMO xylitol, these Chocolate Bars are sugar-free and are a low-glycemic alternative that works anytime of the day.  Needless to say, I always keep these in stock!

Beef Sticks

These 100% Grass-Fed Beef Sticks are great to have as a snack on the go. Grass Run Farms provide the high-quality protein and essential ‘good’ fats grass-fed beef is known for, so you can refuel and keep your health priorities sated too.

Paleo Coconut Wraps

These wraps are a lifesaver when you are craving bread!  Whether you are Paleo or not, these wraps made from 100% coconut, will add a lot of variety to your diet.  They are durable enough to hold a runny egg, with sautéed greens, and avocado (one of my favorites).  They also make a great snack on the run by spreading some almond butter out and rolling it up.  And they are 100% raw, as well!

Health Works Goji Berries

Consumed by both warriors and meditating monks alike, Goji berries (also known as Wolfberries), have been used in Asian herbal medicine for over 5,000 years and has been regarded as one of the most nutrient-rich foods on earth.  They are a vegetarian source of protein containing high amounts of essential amino acids, vitamins C and A, and over 20 trace minerals and vitamins (including zinc, iron, phosphorus, B2, vitamin E, and carotenoids).  Health Works Goji berries are certified organic and come from small farmers.  I love adding these to my salad for a little bit of sweetness.  They are great by themselves, as well.  While you can get Goji Berries at any health food store, they tend to be quite pricey!  Health Works has been my favorite resource for high quality Goji Berries in bulk.

Great Lakes Gelatin

This powder is a great addition to a smoothie and we often recommend it to many of our patients.  The Collagen helps repair the digestive tract and connective tissues of the body, improving skin, hair, and nails.  This powder is tasteless and can be added to hot or cold liquids easily.

Electrolytes

Electrolytes are a must when you are detoxing!  Not only will they replenish your minerals, but they will give you an energy burst as well.  Oxylent is one of the highest quality electrolyte packets I’ve seen on the market.  It contains vitamins, minerals, electrolytes, amino acids, and antioxidants with easy absorption.  All with no sugar, dairy, gluten, soy, artificial additives, or GMOs.

Natural Value Coconut Milk

Coconut milk can be used in so many different ways.  It’s rich and satisfying, making it a staple in my pantry.  Finding high quality coconut milk, however, is not easy.  Natural Value is the only coconut milk that does not contain additives, just pure coconut milk.  When ordering this brand online, you have to get a whole case, but it’s well worth having in bulk.
