Hu Kitchen Organic Paleo|Vegan Chocolate Bars
Hu Kitchen is one of my favorite places to eat when I am in New York City. This company makes some of the BEST paleo products. Not only is Hu Kitchen Chocolate incredibly delicious, but their chocolate is also good for your health! There is no dairy, no gluten, no soy lecithin, no preservatives, no refined sugar, no cane sugar, no sugar alcohols and are non-GMO. They include 72% organic stone-ground cacao and are completely guilt free! My favorite flavor is the Hazelnut Butter Dark Chocolate.
GG® Scandinavian Bran Crispbreads
These high fiber, low calorie scandinavian snacks have continued to gain popularity in the United States for their health and weight loss benefits. GG® Scandinavian Bran Crispbreads were created in Norway by Gudner Gundersen in 1935. Gudner wanted to create a fiber-rich cracker that helped supplement his diet with extra fiber. He created his signature recipe with bran, rye flour, a hint of salt, and fresh water. The company has kept the original simple and healthy recipe. These crackers are great to add to any snack or meal as a replacement for bread or other high carb food. High fiber snacks help regulate blood sugar and aid in digestion of carbohydrates. I love topping mine with smoked salmon, avocado and eggs or making mini pizzas. Each cracker contains 4g of fiber, 20 calories and 2g net carbs.
Banza Chickpea Pasta
This year is all about the chickpeas LOL! But seriously, chickpeas make for a great alternative to wheat noodles. Banza pasta has double the protein, four times the fiber and almost half the net carbohydrates of other pastas. You can prepare any of your favorite pasta meals, salads or snacks the exact same way just by making the simple swap. They are naturally gluten free, have a relatively low glycemic index and taste great. I usually keep it simple and combine my pasta with garlic, lemon and fresh vegetables.

Four Sigmatic SuperFood Mushroom Products
Before you start freaking out because you don't like mushrooms or think that these products actually taste like the standard white button mushrooms you eat on your steak or salad, let me tell you about the powers of healing mushrooms from four sigmatic foods. These delicious edible mushroom blends and elixirs offer several health benefits, from nutritional to emotional to physical. They are also very tasty as a coffee, tea, hot cacao or added to smoothies. For example, reishi mushrooms help you relax, manage stress and sleep better.

This is a great afternoon elixir to take before workouts or for a mid-workday boost. For 10% OFF your ENTIRE order of mushroom products use code: DRSUZHEALS at checkout.

Make sure to use only pure and powerful forms of Omega 3 Fatty Acids EPA and DHA for long lasting health benefits including lowered risks of heart disease, arthritis, depression, cognitive decline and more. The supplement I trust is from Athletic Greens and is ultra-purified and concentrated for quality EPA and DHA, they only use sustainable wild caught small fish and are 3rd party tested for contaminants and purity.

She also includes meal plans and tools to track your progress like bluetooth compatible heart rate monitors. Fitness apps that have progress tools are so important in order to keep you on track. I use this App as a journal of sorts, so I can go back and see if I need to tweak anything to achieve my goals. You can even swap out exercises to personalize your workouts. The coolest thing is that when you increase or decrease the intensity of your workouts Jillian will actually respond and you can also pick your music and match the tempo to the pace of your workout!

Natural Skin Care and Beauty
Nudu Natural Beauty
Nudu uses premium botanical actives and other ingredients with proven skin benefits. Immediately after using their products, I began to see clearer more radiant skin on my face and neck. I recommend starting with their 3 step skin care system. You can choose your specific skin type; oily, combination, dry or very dry. The set includes a cleanser, toner and moisturizer. This combination of products helps cleanse skin while improving wrinkles, decreasing redness and discoloration, restoring moisture, suppleness and a healthy glow. My favorite product from Nudu is their overnight radiance renew cream. After using the renew cream, you wake up with a brighter complexion, firmer skin and, over time, decreased wrinkles and dark spots. The plant cells of damas rose and daffodils help calm and soothe skin while you sleep. There are absolutely no parabens, no harsh chemicals, GMO free and never tested on animals. Use Code: DRSUZHEALS at checkout for 20% Off your Entire Order of Nudu Products.
Primal Life Organics
If you are looking for truly ORGANIC beauty and skincare products look no further! The creator Tina Felber, was a practicing nurse for over 20 years. She has a background in anesthesia and understands pathophysiology, the absorption, distribution, breakdown, storage and elimination of chemicals. This lead her to develop a toxin-free line of products called primal life organics to help improve your health. The products that I use daily are the natural deodorant, body butter and scrub. They also have fantastic makeup, sun protection and dental care products. All the products fit with a Paleo Lifestyle and are cruelty free, non-GMO, gluten free and nothing artificial.
Skincare with chemicals and toxins can be very dangerous. Chemicals such as Phalates, Parabens, SLS, benzoyl peroxide, petroleum, are endocrine disrupters. DNA mutagens, and carcinogens enter the body thru the skin, they are absorbed directly into the bloodstream and vital organs, including your brain. Symptoms include attention deficit, memory loss, confusion, difficulty concentrating. Endocrine disruptors affect your hormones. Reproductive problems, cancer, and decreased thyroid function can result. Your thyroid is responsible for your metabolism and if slowed you could accumulate more fat tissue. Your skincare can be contributing to weight gain! Dump those drug store bought beauty products and try Primal Life Organics. Receive 10% Off Your Entire Order with Code: DRSUZHEALS at checkout.
Cooking At Home-Healthy Kitchen Gadgets

Toss and chop your salad with just one simple tool. Turn any salad into a delicious chopped dish with the Trudeau Toss and Chop Salad Tongs.

Make healthy homemade pizza right in your backyard with this portable pizza oven from cuisinart. Whip up a low carb cauliflower pizza crust or purchase an already made crust and add your favorite toppings. Such a great idea for easy pizza making during the week or to impress your friends with freshly made pizza when they come over for dinner.
This one blender can do so many things. Of course, you can make your smoothie but this is so much more. Variable speed control allows you to refine every texture, from the chunkiest salsa to the smoothest purees. You can chop ingredients and even knead dough with the pulse feature. Preparing recipes from scratch is so much quicker and easier with the Vitamix Blender.
Just like your hair, your skin also needs some self-care. Get yourself a natural bristle brush and detox your body in 5-minutes or less with this natural remedy.

Try primal life organics Vitamin-C coffee bean serum (10% off with Code: DRSZUEHALS) while you dry brush.
This product has been a complete lifesaviour! I have been dealing with TMJ pain, headaches and neck pain for several years. After only a couple of 10-15 minute sessions with the neck saviour, I had decreased muscle tension and pain. This device stretches the neck to help reduce pain. It also relieves headaches, is a spinal alignment corrector, a posture tool and a Pilates and yoga aid. Stretching the neck is known as traction and is a treatment often used by therapists to help relieve symptoms such as neck pain, stiffness, muscle spasm, tension headaches and others. Since using the neck saviour, my need for pain medication has been significantly reduced. That is what wellness is about, reducing the need for over the counter and prescription medications and preventing chronic medical conditions.
CBD Oil Products
I am not going to get into too much detail here because I will be discussing CBD oil products in my next post. There has been a recent increase in the use of CBD oils, supplements and other wellness goods. CBD hemp oil is made from high-CBD, low-THC hemp, unlike medical marijuana products, which are usually made from plants with high concentrations of psychoactive tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). Because hemp contains only trace amounts of THC, these hemp oil products are non-psychoactive. CBD wellness products help decrease anxiety, reduce pain and inflammation and can relieve painful period cramps. In my next post I will discuss this further and provide you with my favorite CBD topicals and tinctures.
