My Favorite Things

I know personally how confusing it can be to get the right brands and/or know what items to get along your health journey. If you want an “easy” button, below are products that I recommend to clients to support their health journey.

Magnesium

A majority of people on this planet are magnesium deficient. This can impact our sleep, our blood sugar and over 400 chemical processes in the body! Stress burns magnesium at a rate of 5x normal times, and who isn’t stressed these days? If you are looking for support for sleep, stress, and/or blood sugar help I’d suggest incorporating transdermal (meaning through the skin) magnesium into your day.

FYI- Epsom Salts are detoxifying whereas Magnesium Flakes help to increase magnesium levels in the body. Foot Baths are a great option if you don’t have the time or want to take a full body bath!

Salt

An incredibly simple way to support your health is to make sure that you are using the right type of salt to support your mineral status overall. Table Salt is void of all the trace minerals our bodies need and pink Himalayan salt has been known to have heavy metal contamination. 

For this reason, I choose to stick with a few brands that I know are screened for metals and contain all the trace minerals we need.

Water Filtration

Most of us have become aware that our tap water or even fridge filters aren’t cutting it. I go into detail more in sessions on this with clients, but the best first step to do in determining your water quality is to test your water to see what you actually need to filter out of it. Some filters may be overkill while others may not filter out enough, so testing first can save you time, money and guessing in picking out a filter.

Depending if you have City or Well Water there are different test kits. I also recommend adding on radiation as this is quite an issue for many health disorders and goes unscreened in a lot of homes. Use code MWFITWELL for 10% off orders over $100 through March 31st!

Nutritional Yeast Flakes- great source of B Vitamins!

This may seem random to be on a generalized suggestions page but Nutritional Yeast Flakes pack a great nutritional punch, especially of crucial B vitamins. I am all for supplements, but also really try to get in my nutrients using certain “superfoods” when I can. You have to be careful when buying nutritional yeast flakes, as many are “fortified” and contain not-so-great versions of the vitamins + minerals added. The below options are unfortified and the most natural for your bodies.

Food + Drink Products

In my time of being health-obsessed over the past 10-15 years, I have tried out MANY products, some better, some not-so-great. Below are a few products that I incorporate on a daily/weekly basis to support my health, but also have a little enjoyment too (I like water, don’t get me wrong but it is nice to have other options!).

Detoxification Support

I have learned over the years that daily detoxification support is necessary to keep the body thriving and well. Here are some of my favorite ways to daily support your body’s ability to clear toxins and stay well.

Cleaning + Personal Care

Similar to food, I have tried a LOT of products in this category but have thankfully settled on a few tried and true items:

 YESCLEAN40 for 40% off + Free Shipping on any bundle

 MWFITWELL for 10% off

Recipes + Cookbooks

A big question after I review nutrition with clients is where to find nourishing recipes that are easy and able to be made ahead of time. Whether we like it or not, life is busy and we need simplicity to ensure healthy living. Below are some of the cookbooks and websites I rely on a majority of the time for recipes. Once I like a recipe, I then put it in my phone notes to have easily searchable and accessible!

Books to Read

A lot of people I work with have a thirst for knowledge and I like to provide continuing education for them to pursue more on their health journey. Here are some books I recommend:
