This Healthy and Whole supply list is a guideline more than a rulebook. While you will need each item on the list to complete the 60 day wellness challenge it doesn’t have to be any particular version of the item. If you already own something on the list, great! You already are one step closer to being ready for the 60 challenge! The Amazon links are examples of what you need and are products I recommend, always check labels yourself for potential allergens and check with your Dr. before starting any new health practices.
The Must Haves:
Water bottle with ounces marked on it
It doesn’t have to be a Nalgene bottle, but you do want to be able to track how much water you are drinking
Natural bristles and a long handle for reaching your back are important features, this one is a good example of what to look for.
Once daily are most likely to be taken consistently. Food based vitamins are best but organic and Non-GMO is important too. Some good brands (some are not food based but still high quality): Garden of Life, Rainbow Light, Thorne, Innate, and MegaFood. When in doubt, check if it’s a brand your local Whole Foods carries – they’ve already done the hard work of scrutinizing ingredient lists for you. There are of course fantastic brands they don’t carry, Innate and Thorne are two examples.
Cod Liver Oil
If you refrigerate cod liver oil capsules there isn’t a fishy taste or after taste when you take them. You could of course take the liquid form, but why put yourself through that torture when the capsules are available?
Look for one that needs to be refrigerated, is non-GMO, and has at least 2 billion of each probiotic strain it contains. It’s also good to switch between brands and strains each time you get a new bottle. A lot of the new probiotics no longer need to be refrigerated and are still high quality, as it’s of course harder to get refrigerated ones ordering online. If you need an example of one to order online Garden of Life has some good ones.
Look for teas that support liver and kidney function. Yogi brand Peach Detox and Traditional Medicinal’s Everyday Detox are my favorite widely available. Watch the prices on Amazon though, they sometimes are reasonable, but often are crazy high. You can find both brands at your local grocery store and should expect to pay $4-5 a box if they aren’t on sale.
There is some space in the book to journal out some questions and keep your logs, but you will probably want to have more journaling space for devotions.
The Helpful to Haves (Not necessary for the challenge):
Great mental relaxer and way to stay focused while praying
Does the work for you of tracking your activity levels. The Fitbit One is my favorite model because it tracks steps, flights of stairs, and sleep. Unfortunately Fitbit discontinued the One so the most similar model now is the Inspire. The Inspire comes with a wristband but can also be worn clipped to your pocket or bra just like the One.
Even with a good diet, we often do not get the enzymes our bodies need to absorb nutrients and digest our food. Enzyme supplements can aid in this process when taken with meals.
