Most popular recommendations
Vitamix: My Vitamix blender is my #1 recommended health and wellness tool. Why? It makes silky smooth smoothies. It makes cold food hot. And, it cleans itself. I use mine EVERY SINGLE DAY to make complete meals in seconds. No, they’re not cheap. But there’s really nothing like ’em.

Bluehost: Getting myself a domain was the first thing I did when starting this site. Why? The longer a domain (yourcleversite.com) has been “alive”, the better it gets ranked by Google. Bluehost makes it super easy to lock in a domain name for free.

If you are thinking of getting a juicer, read this:
- Vega protein:These plant-based protein powders are terrific. They’re the ONLY powdered protein I’ll put into my body. Free shipping on orders over $100.
- Egg Whites International: While I usually get cartons from Trader Joe’s, I’ve order egg whites from these guys. Delivery service is great, and if you don’t need organic, these are great.
- The China Study: This book summarizes the mind-blowing findings from the 10-year, Oxford-backed, study on the connection between nutrition and heart disease, diabetes, and cancer. I’m not a vegan as a result of reading, but it immediately changed my life forever.
- Wheat Belly: I thought this book was boring, but absolutely worth reading if you need inspiration to eat less bread.
- Switch: This book is the #1 reason for my success. So, so good.
