Well-Nourished Family

Here are four companies that can make life a little easier while ensuring you and and your family are well-nourished.

I truly believe in these products — my family and I use them!


Vitamix Blender

I love my Vitamix more than anything! It literally changed my life and my family's. We use it everyday and the best part is that my family and I are getting our 9- 13 servings of vegetables and fruits a day. Everyone that gets the Vitamix will tell you it changed their life. It is worth every penny!

Vital Choice

We started buying our wild caught salmon and halibut from Vital Choice about 6 years ago. I was introduced to Vital Choice from Dr. William Sears as well as Dr Catherine Northrup. The fish is awesome and what I really appreciate is that they test their fish for mercury. Since the Fukushima disaster, Vital Choice has also begun to test their fish for radiation.

Catie's Organic, Gluten Free Greens  

I travel a lot and I always make sure I take this along to make sure I am getting enough "Greens." Every morning my husband and I start our day with a glass of water with lemon followed by Catie's Organic Gluten Free Greens. 

This super concentrated Whole Food formula is abundant in vitamins, minerals, healing phyto-nutrients, fiber, antioxidants, good probiotic bacteria, digestive enzymes, and essential fatty acids. One tablespoon is approximately equal to 7 daily servings of the most potent green vegetables!

Catie's Gluten-Free Greens has: Adaptogenic, Anti-Stress, Antiviral, Antifungal, and Antibacterial Properties.

Catie's Gluten Free Greens: Cleanses, strengthens, nourishes, nurtures, and promotes regeneration of the cells which make up the organs, glands, bones, and tissues in the body.

If You Are Pregnant:  There are herbal ingredients in this product that have not been studied enough to know whether it is safe for consumption while pregnant and breastfeeding. They are: Slymarin (Milk Thistle), Panax Ginseng (Root), Suma Powder (Root), Organic Parsley Powder, Astragalus, Ginkgo Biloba Extract 24% Leaf.

If You Are Preparing To Get Pregnant: I would recommend this product to help your body get ready.  But obviously you would have to speak to your health care provider if they feel it's okay for you to take. 

For Everyone Else: I recommend this….. so does my husband! ;-) 

Caties Organic Greens

Juice Plus

This has also been a life saver for me while traveling. I was introduced to Juice Plus+ by Dr Sears when I became a Dr Sears LEAN and LEAN Expectations. He recommends Juice Plus+ to all his patients (KIDS) to bridge the gap between days that they eat well and when they don't. Juice Plus+ is whole food based nutrition including juice powder concentrates from 25 different fruits, vegetables and gluten-free grains.

  • Next best thing to fruits and Vegetables
  • Healthful Farm to Capsule whole food nutrition
  • Supported by extensive Clinical Research
  • Recommended by leading Health Professionals
  • Confirmed by 150,000+ families in Children's Health Study

Safe to take during pregnancy and breastfeeding. My nieces love the Juice Plus+ gummies and I do too.

Juice Plus and Pregnancy

There was an awesome study done with 356 pregnant women. Half took prenatal vitamins, the other half took prenatal vitamins and Juice Plus.  In the Juice Plus group there were NO preterm babies.  That mean that none of the Juice Plus babies were born before 37 weeks.   In the control group (moms taking pre-natal vitamin only) – 20% of the babies were born premature.  In addition, none of the Juice Plus babies needed the NICU or had respiratory distress.  None of the Juice Plus moms developed pre-eclampsia, as compared to 21% of the vitamin taking moms. The Juice plus moms also required less cesarean births.  Healthier moms mean healthier babies.  And best of all – adding 25 veggies, fruits and berries to your diet every single day is affordable.  Juice Plus costs $3 a day.  You can download your own copy of the pregnancy study here
