Here are some of my favorite health and beauty related resources and products. Click pictures and links below to browse and/or shop!
No More Dirty Looks, By Siobhan O’Connor & Alexandra Spunt: This book is a great starting point for those interested in clean/nontoxic beauty. It has very compelling arguments and research to support the authors’ belief that many contemporary conventional beauty products are harmful to our health. Includes ingredient overviews, possible health risks of toxins found in beauty products, alternative suggestions for cleaner beauty products, DIY beauty recipes, and more.
A Consumer’s Dictionary of Cosmetic Ingredients, by Ruth Winter, M.S.: A thorough and comprehensive guide to almost all ingredients found in today’s cosmetics. Get overwhelmed reading ingredient labels and having to google each one? This book is a great companion to reading and understanding labels and ingredients.
Goop Clean Beauty, by the Editors of Goop: If you’re familiar with Goop and it’s founder, Gwyneth Paltrow, you probably know to take whatever they suggest with a grain of salt, haha. This is a pretty coffee table book that reflects my values and it does have some interesting and valuable information as well. Includes beautiful pictures and skin/beauty related recipes, detox guides, health and exercise tips, interviews with experts, and more.

AIP Favorites (click images to view/buy)
Artisan Tropic Cassava Strips: THE BEST THINGS EVER. AIP/Paleo friendly chips made from yuca/cassava and they are better than potato chips. Seriously.
Bragg’s Apple Cider Vinegar: USDA Cert. Organic, can be used for everything and is my favorite brand of ACV
La Tourangelle Avocado Oil: Has a higher smoke point than olive oil so it is safer to use when cooking. Mild flavor that you don’t notice (doesn’t make food taste like avocado)
Primal Palate AIP Spice Blends: USDA Certified Organic fresh gourmet blends. Super high quality. I haven’t used the Breakfast Blend yet but Syper Gyro is great for meats and vinagerattes and I use Garlic & Herb on EVERYTHING. It’s amazing.
USDA Organic Ginger, Turmeric & Cinnamon tea: SO good and no sweeteners or even fruit extracts! But smells and tastes delicious, and the ginger & turmeric are good for nausea and indigestion.
