Resources

I am often asked where I get ingredients from or where to buy specific products mentioned in a post. I thought it would be helpful to create a page of my most recommended resources. I personally use these products, or the products of these vendors (when they have many products – spices, for example) and highly recommend all of them. I will add to this list as I learn more and get more experimental with my smoothies, so check back often.  You’ll notice that I reference this page quite a bit in my posts and you may want to bookmark this page for your reference and convenience.

Disclosure: Please note that some of the links below are affiliate and distributor links, and at no additional cost to you I will earn a commission if you decide to make a purchase. Please understand that I have experience with all of these companies, and I recommend them because they are helpful and useful, not because of the small commissions I make if you decide to buy something. Please do not spend any money on these products unless you feel you need them or that they will help you achieve your goals.

Specific Products I use

Spices & Herbs

Penzys offers spices, herbs, and seasonings as well as recipe suggestions. I order all of my spices and herbs from Penzeys. Click here.

Nuts & Seeds

Nuts.com offers premium nuts, dried fruit, chocolates and sweets. Nut and popcorn orders are roasted the same day your order ships so they are fresh when you get them. I order all of my nuts and seeds from Nuts.com. If you visit the site, I recommend visiting the about-us page for a few good laughs. Click here.

Blender

A high power blender will make it easier to blend the ingredients for your smoothies into a smooth and creamy texture. The one I use can be found here.

Food scale

In order to make accurate calculations on nutrition facts you’ll need a reliable and accurate food scale. The one I use is here.

Nutrition fact information

I use two free online resources to derive my nutrition fact information:

SELFNutritionData can be found here.
I find this site extremely useful and consistent. I use it the most.

MyFitnessPal can be found here.
The MyFitnessPal website has a LOT of information because people can add whatever they want to the database. This sometimes makes it feel cluttered and inconsistent – although if you’re looking for a very specific food (a meal from a particular restaurant or brand name foods) this site will most likely have it.
