Healthy Brands To Transform Your Kitchen

As you may know, a lot of foods that you probably have in your kitchen right now have a long list of ingredients, words that you can’t pronounce, added sugar with all kinds of different names and abbreviations like GMO. I always tell my clients, “if you can’t pronounce an ingredient, then you probably shouldn’t put it in your body.” Thus, I have simplified this task for you by putting together a list of healthy brands to transform your kitchen.

Not to mention all the different names that sugar has and how they always find ways to sneak it in to just about everything! Talk about frustrating! I get it. In the beginning of my fitness journey it was overwhelming and frustrating when it came to wanting to eat healthy but I wasn’t exactly sure what to look for.

Knowing some of the ways they sneak sugar in is a great place to start. Familiarize yourself with some of “hidden sugar names” so you can start becoming aware when/if you do want to learn how to read food labels.

Tips to help transition your kitchen to healthier brands:

  1. SAVE/SHARE this post so you can return to it while you are shopping and will know what brands to look for.
  2. Start by swapping out your cooking oils, condiments, and spices.
  3. Next, find places or websites that sell those brands to make it easier on yourself. I will post some of my favorites below.
  4. While grocery shopping, look for items that say, minimally processed, NON-GMO, NO MSG or SLS, Organic, and Free Range.
  5. Continue to swap out your proteins, dairy products, snacks, drinks, and even your baking goods.

Remember, this is going to take time! Give yourself some grace and remember it’s a learning process and your body will thank you later.

My favorite places to purchase my “go-to” brands:

  1. Thrivemarket.com
  2. Amazon.com
  3. Luckyvitamin.com
  4. Butcherbox.com
  5. Sprouts Farmers Market
  6. Whole Foods

Ok, now that we know what to look for when it comes to hidden sugar and how to start swapping out your “not-so-great” ingredients for some healthier options, let’s move onto my favorite healthy brands!
