for healthy fats
remember – when it comes to healthy fats, it’s worth investing a little more. better quality = more nutrients and less toxins.
- butter. any butter will be great, as long as it’s real butter. for better quality options, look for grass-fed such as this one http://amzn.to/2ddI8i7.
- for coconut oil, look for organic, cold-pressed such as this one http://amzn.to/2dxriKx.
- for ghee (clarified butter), we LOVE this one http://amzn.to/2dq2asU. remember, ghee can be used like butter, or if you have dairy intolerances.
- for olive oil, we only recommend this one http://amzn.to/2di5uBi because many olive oils have been tested as fraudulent! visit truthinoliveoil.com.

sparkling water options
use sparkling water as a compliment to your overall hydration goals. the majority of the water you drink should be pure, and then mineralized yourself. and then you can have sparkling water periodically to add variety and flavor.
