Some of my favorite healthy living resources for real foods, supplements, and products …
When I first started switching to a healthier lifestyle, one of the first questions I had was where to find the best sources for real food ingredients and natural products?
Over the past several years, I’ve tried many different options, and it took me awhile to find the brands and products that worked well for me and that met my standards for being real, simple, and natural.
I’ve put together this collection of my favorite sources all in one place to share with you, whether you’re just starting the transition to living a more natural lifestyle or whether you’ve been eating “real” for a while not and you’re looking for something new to try that might suit your needs even better.
These are all online sources, so if you like to shop in your jammies like I do, then these sources have the convenience of online shopping but still have the quality we’re looking for in natural and “real” foods.

Natural Whole Food Supplements
Perfect Supplements is a great source for organic, good-quality, whole food supplements from a variety of natural brands.
These supplements are whole food supplements, so they are the kind that are basically like eating healthy foods, but just in a form that is easier and more convenient to take. This makes them a much more natural option than supplements that were synthetically derived in a laboratory.
Some of my favorite things to get from Perfect Supplements are:
- Rosita Extra Virgin Cod Liver Oil (This cod liver oil is surprisingly mild in flavor compared to what you would think cod liver oil would taste like.)
- Perfect Dessicated Liver Powder (They have these in capsules too but I like the powder because I don’t like swallowing capsules.)
- Perfect Supplements Hydrolyzed Collagen Powder (I love the fact that this powder mixes in so easily with my evening cup of tea!)

Just Thrive are spore probiotics that have an incredible survival rate through the digestive system. One of my favorite things about these probiotics is the fact that you don’t have to worry about keeping them in the refrigerator. And I love the fact that you can open up the capsules and sprinkle the powder over your food (even over hot food because they will still survive!) For people like me who have a hard time swallowing capsules this makes them much easier to take.
Just Thrive also has other products, too, besides the probiotic like a prebiotic, immune supplement, a supplement for gluten sensitivity, and even a probiotic for pets too! I haven’t tried these other products yet, but I’ve been using their probiotic supplement for a few years now and loving it.
