Nutiva Coconut Oil: I don’t notice any coconut flavor in this oil. Of course I don’t eat it with a spoon, but I use it in cooking every day. I put this in my Amazon cart and click “save for later” so that I can easily check to see if it’s on sale. Sometimes it’s over $20, but other times it’s about $15.

Sweet Potato Noodles: our favorite grain free noodles. These are usually cheaper, about $3 for one package, at the local Asian market, but sometimes Amazon has a deal. These work well with Thai peanut sauces as well as hamburger gravy.

Stick Blender: I spent about $20 on this gadget just to make homemade mayo. It is worth it. The price goes up and down, and sometimes you can find it in different colors. Mine is green.
