Raw Coconut Butter – I wouldn’t want to go one day without coconut butter. My favorite is Artisana raw organic coconut butter. I use coconut butter daily in my coffee as a delicious creamer. See my coffee with coconut butter, chaga and maple syrup recipe. I also use it in my sweet smoothies, mixed with water/ice cubes it makes a rich milk liquid base for adding bananas and (see chocolate banana blueberry smoothie recipe). We even blend it with water and use it for milk in pancakes and other baking recipes.
Organic French Roasts – Our chosen is Cafe Altura’s Biodynamic French Roast. This coffee is smooth and strong, with low acidity. Use in a french press for delicious results.
Stevia Extract – the healthy calorie-free sweetener! Some versions of the this extract can taste really strong, almost like alcohol. NuNaturals Clear Stevia is the best by far. I add a drop or two of this to our coffee, smoothies and sometimes baking recipes to heighten the sweetness of other unrefined sweeteners like honey and maple syrup.
Iodine drops – These drops taken at recommended dosages will help many many ailments. According to WebMD they are effective for hyperthyroidism, radiation emergency, and a skin infection caused by the fungus Sporothrix, may improve thyroid performance, leg ulcers, and radiation exposure. Here is one website that explains a schedule for taking the drops: http://www.20somethingallergies.com/iodine-protocol-for-healing-thyroid/
Note about Amazon links:
The titles and images are Amazon links. Each time a reader clicks the link and purchases anything on Amazon, I get a small small percentage of that sale. Living in a rural community on Big Island, Amazon prime has been a huge tool in helping me find ways to save money and find exactly what I want. I know buying local is ideal (and I do everyday) but I prefer Amazon Prime for many items for a few reasons:
- I can comfortably buy staple items (often in bulk) for up to 30% less than local store prices
- I don’t have to drive (gas $$ and time-save the planet)
- Don’t have to park, stand in long checkout lines, looking around for things that store either don’t have or are too $$.
