My Favorite Things

One of the reasons Start Fueling Better was created was to help people weed through the bologna (no pun intended) within the world of nutrition. As well as to provide people with accurate and helpful nutrition information, with the intention of helping them feel better and/or make their lives easier.

This all came about because I wanted these answers myself. So over time I have tried a lot of products and found some that I really like. Then I began suggesting them to family, friends and people I met. With that said, I have created this page to now share these products with all of you that may also be interested. To be clear, I only recommend things I have used myself and would recommend to family and friends. I hope you enjoy them as much as I do!

This page may contain affiliate links, which means if you make a purchase that Start Fueling Better, LLC will receive a small portion of the sale. That is at no additional expense to you. Only my favorites make it to this page. Thank you for your support.

Kitchen Goods

Reusable Silicone Bag

Freezer, Microwave, Dishwasher, Oven Safe

Variety of Colors/Designs Available

Reusable Grocery/Shopping Bags

Variety of Colors/Prints Available, Machine Washable

My previous grocery bags were harder to clean and that grossed me out. I really like that these can be tossed in the machine. Plus I don't feel weird taking these to shop at pretty much any store because they are pretty stylish.

BPA-Free Glass Water Bottle 

Variety of Colors Available

It's not as heavy as I thought it might be, which I like. The silicone on the outside makes it easy to handle even if your hands are a little wet. I like the wide mouth bottle like this one pictured here, but they have the more narrow mouth if you prefer that.

Microwavable Popcorn Popper

This folds in on itself, which is nice for storage.

Glass Storage Containers

BPA Free, Oven, Freezer, Dishwasher & Microwave Safe


Electric Can Opener

I have always hated can openers. (Perhaps because I'm left-handed...?) Seriously, I've never liked a can opener UNTIL this can opener. It is awesome!


Reusable Produce Bags

I love that these can be put into the washing machine.


Personal Care / Beauty

Primal Pit Paste

Natural Deodorant

So many natural deodorants just don't work. This product has worked wonderfully. No complaints at all. The deodorant smells pretty dang good too.


Honest Company

Face + Body Lotion

Not too greasy, and rubs in all the way so there isn't a bunch of stickiness leftover.


Honest Beauty

Gentle Gel Cleanser

Honest Beauty

Elevated Hydration Mist

It sounds silly but my face feels so nice, fresh and hydrated after spraying this on.


Honest Beauty

Extreme Length Mascara + Primer

Honest Beauty products are not tested on animals.



Honest Company

Organic Cotton Applicator Tampons

Honest Company

Shampoo + Body Wash





Honest Beauty

Truly Restored Shampoo

Honest Company

Detangler (leave-in conditioner)

My hair gets so tangled and knotted after washing it. I spray this on my hair and then comb through my hair. I swear my hair is so much more manageable when I use this.

Honest Beauty

Deep Hydration Face Cream




Honest Beauty

Makeup Remover Wipes

I have been a huge fan of Honest and Honest Beauty for awhile now. Their products are "free of " a lot of ingredients that other products aren't. Perhaps that is why some face wipes leave my face and hands feeling greasy and irritate my eyes. These wipes don't do any of that!


Honest Company

Dishwasher Detergent

Honest Company

Foaming Hand Soap

Honest Company

Laundry Detergent

Josh (my husband, AKA Mr. Bossy- see the SFB podcast) gets skin issues/eczema from some detergents, but not this one.
