SHAKES

The following shakes are ones recommend. I personally use all three of the shakes, rotating them in my daily routine. Yearly I go to the natural products, organic trade show in California, After sampling numerous shake powder products, I found these brands to have the best flavor without the added carbs like so many other shakes.

 

Dr. Mercola’s shake has the added benefit of added probiotics.

This is a great tasting shake with healthy ingredients.

This is also a great tasting shake with wonderful ingredients.


 

PROBIOTICS

Syntol is my first choice when looking to add a Probiotic to your daily program. If you chose to select this probiotic, send me an email and I will send you my exact recommended protocol for taking this supplement. If we add too many friendly flora to the gut quickly it can cause a rapid die-off of pathogenic bacteria. The metabolic byproducts of this die-off can produce minor side effects such as symptoms of cold and flu, headaches, etc.

Syntol® AMD “Advanced Microflora Delivery”

Typical probiotic formulas contain competing strains of bacteria. These strains can be cannibalistic or fight for the same food sources. Simply adding more strains of bacteria to a probiotic does not necessarily make it more effective and in some cases can actually have an adverse effect. Syntol® AMD contains 100% complementary microflora in capsule form.. Syntol® AMD uses spore germination technology, a revolutionary new process, that delivers probiotic spores rather than living bacteria. Probiotic spores are dormant life forms that protect the bacteria from acidic conditions, as well as extreme heat and cold. These spores then attach themselves to the inside of the intestinal mucosa and begin to germinate forming the probiotic bacteria. Spore germination technology is an extremely dependable means for delivering probiotics in less than ideal conditions. Spore germinated probiotics do not require glass packaging or refrigeration.

Syntol® Synbiotic Formulation

Syntol® is a combination of probiotics and prebiotics more commonly referred to and classified as synbiotics. Prebiotics are nondigestible food ingredients that stimulate the growth and activity of probiotics. These prebiotics create the essential environments for probiotics as well as our own indigenous bacteria to flourish. Syntol® uses Fructo-oligosaccharides or FOS as a prebiotic. FOS also referred to as neosugar and short-chain FOS is completely resistant to bodily digestion. These neosugars pass safely through the stomach and small intestine. They act to stimulate the growth of probiotics and bifidobacteria in the large intestine by fermenting and creating ideal conditions for microflora colonization.

 

Complete Probiotics by Dr. Mercola is another great Probiotic choice.  

Crazy as it sounds, my dog has had a dramatic improvement after taking Dr. Mercola’s Pet Probiotics.

 

Ulitmate Flora by Renew Life is still another great choice. They also have a good prebiotic supplements- Organic Clear Fiber.

 


 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I strongly endorse and promote products that improve our digestive system. Health starts in the “gut”.

FoodSaver V3240 Vacuum Sealing System

Food Saver- I have a similar model of Food Saver, except mine is the camouflage color- (Camo was on sale last year- lucky me??). I use mine daily for leftovers and for freezing vegetables from the garden. A food saver is so handy for making your own Healthy Fast Foods. When learning to make healthy meals,  just double the recipe, vacuum pack, freeze and you are set for those busy nights you can’t cook.

 

Omron Pedometer

I have had an Omron Pedometer for over two years and wear mine every day. It resets itself daily and keeps a log of the past seven days. Some of my clients bought less expensive pedometers and found them hard to set or operate. Wearing a pedometer helps us to be mindful of our goal of walking 10,000 steps daily! I have never had a problem with the pedometer, except for the day I lost it while riding horses. Luckily I found it in the arena. Caution, Do not wear while operating wild horses!

 

Misto Sprayer

This  refillable sprayer is a good way to decrease calories and save money. I fill mine with olive oil to mist my veggies before dehydrating or cooking. It also saves money by replacing the cooking sprays you buy at the store. Just fill your sprayer, pump and spray baking pans, grills, skillet or any food needing a light touch of oil. I have had mine for over three years. They also made great Christmas gifts one year for all of my children.

Nesco Dehydrator

This is my newest appliance and I love it. After a lot of research I selected this dehydrator to replace an older different brand I had been using. The Nesco works so much quicker than previous ones I have had. The motor is at the top so the juices do not get into motor as the food is dehydrating.. The bottom pan is a breeze to clean. I have been using it daily during the summer to make cucumber and tomato chips, to satisfy my need for crunch and salt. For more details on making chips, check out the recipe page.



EatSmart Precision GetFit Digital Body Fat Scale w/ 400 lb. Capacity & Auto Recognition Technology

 

 

 

Eat Smart Precision Scale – A digital scale is essential for anyone wanting to lose weight or monitor their maintenance weight. This scale received excellent ratings. During weight loss I recommend weighing weekly, on the same day, at the same time. When you reach your goal weight, I recommend weighing daily! I adjust my daily calories according to the morning scales. It is much easier to take off a pound than waiting until you are 10 pounds off you goal weight.

 

 

 

Eat Smart Precision Food Scale- A food scale is a great tool when monitoring portion control. This one receives excellent ratings. Just remember when weighing proper portions for meats (5 oz. red meat, 6 oz. chicken, 7 oz. fish) it is after it is cooked. Raw meat weighs more than cooked,  so be sure to measure extra  to allow for shrinkage in cooking.
