Do you offer health coaching services?
Do you buy 100% organic produce?
When it comes to organic, I stick to the dirty dozen & clean 15 list. (Easy to google other lists, and check annually). Meaning, I try my best to always purchase organic what's on that list, purchase organic where I can, and do my best with the rest.
For instance: I always purchase berries, apples, greens, potatoes, and stone fruits organic. Plus always what is on dirty dozen. Examples of conventional items I buy are mangoes, avocados, melons, citrus, cauliflower, etc...

What kitchen appliances do you use?
Here are the links (via amazon) for all the appliances I purchased, or that I've acquired through birthdays/holidays! You certainly do not need all these, but I would say a high speed blender is most essential:
Excalibur Dehydrator - 9 Tray
Big Berkey - water filter
I found some of these items (cheaper) at Costco, Walmart, Target, or Bed, Bath, & Beyond with coupons/sales. Keep in mind, these are items for your daily, healthy lifestyle! Think of it as a long-term investment! Here's a tip: always ask for gift cards for birthday's and holidays ;)
What herbs do you take, and where do you purchase them?
I've been on an array of herbal protocols (tinctures & capsules) over the last 2 years, and I change it up quite often, depending on how I feel. I order my herbs through Dr. Morse or OurBotanicals.com, and create specific herbal protocols for clients, tailored to clients' needs.
However, I also drink a lot of different herbal teas/infusions! You can order herbs & spices in bulk from:
Where do purchase food in bulk?
I buy my bulk produce from Costco! But as far as dried goods, spices, toiletries, etc..., I order a lot from:
Thrive market, Raw Food World, and iHerb are other great online resources.
Do you take supplements?
No, but I do take B12 on/off, as I feel it's best to listen to when my body needs it. When buying B12, make sure it's made with methylcobalamin. Click here to see the brand I use! I wrote an entire blog post on supplements, which can be viewed here.
I am not opposed to supplements, and I believe in taking a good form of d3 ocassionally in the winter. I just personally feel I would rather detox, and address the root cause of my conditions & symptoms first, rather than suppress. Remember, you must eat healthy and detoxify the body, not just rely on supplements.

What is dairy?
Dairy includes milks - including lactose free-, yogurt, ghee, gelato, ice cream, kefir, sour cream, casein, buttermilk, cottage cheese, cream, custard, cream cheese, whey/whey protein, butter, and all types of cheeses - anything that comes from the milk of an animal! Make sure to read labels when buying boxed food items as well, as a lot of foods will have dairy in ingredients. Remember, lactose free does not mean dairy free.
What can I eat / drink in place of dairy?
How did you transition to a plant-based diet? What do you recommend?
Read my blog post about how to transition to a plant-based diet! I also highly recommend researching/reading/watching videos by Dr. Morse, Dr. Greger, PlantForks over Knives, PlantBasedAthlete, and more! Always make sure you're eating more plant-based foods vs. animal based foods! The more fruits, veggies, whole grains, legumes you eat, the less room you'll have for animal products.
Book recommendations coming soon!
