Anthony’s 5 lbs Unblanched Almond Flour

This is by far the cheapest you’ll find quality almond flour. I use this for almond flour pizzas, keto cookies and pancakes that still fit my macros ;).

To be noted: the ziplock isn’t the best on these products so i use a ‘clip chip to seal this closed.

Anthony’s Almond Meal Flour, Natural Unblanched, 5lbs, Batch Tested Gluten Free, Keto Friendly

Anthony’s 4 lbs Coconut Flour

So coconut flour is Paleo and can be Keto if you don’t overdo it! This is a little higher carb count than the almond flour but can be used in all the same recipes as the almond flour with a sweeter flavor. Madison loves cookies and pancakes made with coconut flour even more than the ones with almond flour.

Also, this is the best quality product for the price.

To be noted: the ziplock isn’t the best on these products so i use a ‘clip chip to seal this closed.

Amazon Supplements We Use:

Greens Powder Supplement

So this is My ‘everything supplement.’ This is the one supplement that i’ve used the longest and the most consistently.

I use this everyday like a multivitamin, but it also counts as a serving of vegetables and a probiotic and prebiotic supplement. It’s from all whole-foods so you can assure that it will be bioavailable and absorbed in the proper ratio of nutrients as nature intended.

There’s tons of grasses, sprouted nutrients, algae and chlorella that also helps me stay anti-inflammatory and recover quickly from all the training that i do on a daily basis!

Garden of Life Raw Organic Perfect Food Alkalizer & Detoxifier Juiced Greens Superfood Powder – Lemon Ginger, 30 Servings (Packaging May Vary) – Non-GMO, Gluten Free Whole Food Dietary Supplement

Electrolyte Supplement – no sugar

I recommend this supplement to anyone who is about to start a ketogenic diet, a low carb diet, or who is about to ramp up their summer cardio training!

This is probably the supplement i’ve used the second longest (behind my greens supplement). My mom takes all the credit for this. She started me on this when i was in high school playing softball all day 5 days a week in the Houston heat and humidity.

After all of our runs this past summer Madison would get calf cramps (and occasionally even quad cramps). He could drink water all day long and still cramp after our 4-6 mile run that evening. The issue wasn’t with his water intake, it was with his electrolyte deficiency!

We all need electrolytes to ‘hold our water in our bodies.’ If we don’t have enough electrolytes then we can’t get hydrated and when we drink the water goes straight through us.

This is a budget-friendly and tasty supplement that doesn’t have any calories, no sugar and no junk…Thanks mom ;).

Reign Pre and Post Workout

Here’s a picture of Madison not using it as a pre-workout, but in his amazing shirt i bought him! πŸ˜‰

This is the only ‘energy drink’ or ‘pre workout’ that Madison and i use. We goth had one before this latest Spartan Asheville race. Save these drinks for special occasions when you’ll be doing multiple workouts in a day or a very long and brutal workout that is outside of your ‘norm.’ This is NOT best used as your ‘everyday’ drink (that should be water πŸ˜‰ ).

This drink has Branched Chain Amino Acids, B-Vitamins, CoQ 10, caffeine, and no added sugar.

Kalm with Kava – Sleep and Anti-Anxiety Herb

There’s 3 different ‘strains’ that i’ve tried from this company and this one is by far my favorite.

This is their ‘heavy’ formula to use near bed time to help you relax and get ready for bed. This is part of my nightly ‘sleep hygiene’ ritual along with dimming the lights and putting all electronic devices on airplane mode!

Melatonin – Natural Sleep Aid

Really if there’s one thing i’ve always had trouble with, it’s falling asleep. It’s hard to wind down when you have this much energy and enthusiasm for life!

So your body naturally produces melatonin in the pineal gland to regulate your sleep/wake cycles. To naturally raise your melatonin levels, you want to be dimming the lights an hour before bed and blocking all blue light by turning off all your ‘screens.’ If you’ve already tried this and are still having trouble sleeping, this is a safe and low dose melatonin that works like a charm for ‘hard to fall asleep’ nights.

In addition to this, melatonin is also best used when you are traveling and need to ‘reset’ your sleep time to adjust to a new time zone and sleep/wake cycle.

Amazon Beauty Products I Use:

Curling Jelly and Definer

It’s your ‘go straight from a the gym to photoshoot ready’ (or perhaps back to work if you’re doing a lunch workout) in less than 15 minutes solution.

This is my favorite hair product if i had to pick just one. I’m not a super girly, but rather more of a tomboy that has recently taken an interest in hair, make-up and getting all fancied up!

So if you have hair like mine (Madison likes to call it my ‘mane’) that’s wavy and a little ‘free-spirited’ all the time, this’ll is perfect for after a workout. All you need to do is make your hair damp and splash a little water throughout your hair and then use both finger tips to dip into the jelly and slip upside down and scrunch it into your hair.

And when it dries ‘voila’ no one will know you were sopping in sweat 15 minutes ago during a WOD with your buddies.

Eyeliner – Espresso Color

Trust me, it’s even better than black! And for some reason it’s less chunky and stays smooth and doesn’t dry out before you’re all the way through the eyeliner gel.

I’ve gone through 5+ of these without one of them drying out.

One tip though – clean the eyeliner brush after each use with make-up remover or just by brushing on a bar of soap with running water over it. Otherwise, the brush gets really disgusting after a couple of applications!
