Clean Baby Gear
Flame-retardant free ONLY in colors Jordan and Henry, which are mostly made of merino wool. Fits into the Uppa Baby Cruz and Vista strollers. High safety ratings! Very solid and clean!
Flavorful, pastured meat from small U.S. farms practicing regenerative agriculture to heal the land. Save $30 off your first order of $150. HIGHLY recommend the ground lamb-- Obi's favorite!
Find local farms and ranches in your area that sell grass fed meat, eggs and dairy. Local is always optimal for nutrient-density and local economy. We have found raw milk and local beef this way.
These sprouted oats are the BEST! Sprouting makes them quicker to cook, easier to digest and more nutrient-dense. Organic, non-GMO, small farms! Be sure to check out my oatmeal recipe!
So many collagens are contaminated with heavy metals. Puori publishes 3rd party testing for EVERY BATCH! This is the collagen I feed my son with Down syndrome for brain and tissue support.
Vital Proteins tests extremely low in heavy metals and contaminants. Economical as it comes in various sizes. Great to add to coffee, tea, smoothies, oatmeal, fruit salads, yogurt!
This salt tests super low in heavy metals and microplastics. It's hand harvested in Oregon and tastes amazing. It's pricey, but worth it as we use it on everything. A little pinch goes a long way!
This salt tests extremely low in heavy metals and microplastics. It's hand harvested in Iceland. Very clean and yummy! I love adding it to our filtered water to get a different mineral profile.
Very course, very clean (kosher), unrefined white sea salt from deep sea beds in Hawaii. Selina Naturally provides certificates of analysis for all of their salts. This ranks as one of the cleanest!
We use this high polyphenol olive oil for all of our cooking. It's unfiltered and cold-pressed within hours of harvest giving it 3x the antioxidants of most other oils. Very powerful food as medicine!
We use this milder tasting olive oil for salads. It's crushed within hours of harvest so it's loaded with antioxidants. Many olive oils on the market are mixed with lower quality oils. This one is pure!
Simply Organic tests extremely low in heavy metals for most all of their spices. This handy grinder is great because your peppercorns are stored in glass for a fresh grind.
My Favorite Kitchen Products
Note: some of these kitchen products contain plastic or other synthetic materials, but I feel confident using them for my family for food preparation. For bakeware, stove top products, food storage, tableware and utensils (where food will be in contact with materials for longer periods), I try to find products that are made with limited, disclosed, non-toxic materials.
My go-to pressure cooker for easy nutrient-dense broths, stocks, beans, stews, and one pot meals. Total game-changer for making bone broth. Easy to use and clean-- makes you feel like a rockstar!
I LOVE this mini-food processor! I use it for making sauces, salad dressings, purees, chopping herbs and spices. It's easy to clean and better than the cheaper ones that wear out.
We use have used this blender almost everyday for the last 8 years. From salsas to smoothies to sauces to nut butters and flours -- it doesn't get better than this blender. So easy to clean!!!
We love this super powerful cold-press, slow masticating juicer for veggie juicing. Preserves enzymes and nutrients better than high speed juicers. Fun and easy to operate. Quick clean up.
We use this spiralizer for making zoodles, curly fries, spirals etc. from all kinds of veggies. I love it because it has great tabletop suction, can handle hard veggies, works fast and is easy to clean.
I have owned several Breville toasters and toaster ovens. This one is better than them all. It toasts perfectly and has an extra long slot so no more cutting sourdough slices in half. Super awesome!
Sadly most painted glass measuring cups test positive for lead paint (I tested all mine).This one is approved by Lead Safe Mama and has a lovely and highly-effective lemon & lime juicer!
Perfect mixing bowl set that replaces my vintage Pyrex bowls that contained lead, cadmium and some arsenic (see Lead Safe Mama's Pyrex archives). Perfect sizes for all cooking needs!
My Favorite Self-Care Products
Portable infrared sauna light combined with an EMF-free red light (no LED). We use it for everything from hormone balancing to pain relief to night lighting. Use code ROXIE5 for 5% off.
Pure magnesium chloride from a pristine underground seabed. Great for skin issues, pain relief, detox, and mineral support. Stronger potency and bioavailability than epsom salts.
I like to rotate between this clean source of epsom salts and magnesium flakes. This provides the body with sulfate which can be hard to absorb in the stomach for some of us. Great for detox!
