Sharing my Amazon Favorites today in my newest video!  Everything from natural beauty, to natural living.  These are tried and true products that I consistently get on there.  I have found the convenience of buying products on Amazon, plus the quick turn around with Amazon Prime has been a game changer as a busy mom!  I love being able to save some money, while at the same time, getting my products quickly.  It really is the best of both worlds.  I also love being able to read all the reviews.  I find Amazon is one of the best places to read a ton of thorough reviews on a product.

Amazon Gift Guide

Sharing my Amazon Gift Guide on the blog!  I had so much fun creating this for you.  It’s easy to push gift giving to the last minute.  I totally get it!  But thankfully there is Amazon to help make it super easy.  With Amazon Prime you’re able to get gifts in two days and sometimes faster with one day delivery.  Basically making all your Christmas dreams come true!

I know that the holidays can get busy and it’s nice to have an easy option when it comes to gift giving!  These are some of my favorite items I get from Amazon.

Get it here!

What I buy on Amazon

What I buy on Amazon

I’m sharing today What I buy on Amazon.  Honestly, it’s one of my favorite things to view on people’s blogs!  Call me noisy but I love seeing what other people are buying up.  My wallet doesn’t thank me but it sure is fun!

Suzi(Gurl Gone Green) is a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for sites to earn advertising fees by advertising and linking to amazon.com.

So I thought I would show you what I buy on Amazon- I can’t believe it’s taken me this long.  I’ve rounded out some of my top purchases, things I buy on the regular and some items I’ve bought that we use all the time but were just a one time purchase.  You can shop my whole Amazon Store here.  It has all my Amazon favorites in one place.

I’m also going to talk about some of my favorite purchases more in detail below.

Keep checking back too!  I’ll be adding to my Amazon Store as I find cool products and great deals.  I mean who doesn’t have Amazon Prime?!

I want to share with you my go too’s when it comes to saving money and time.  Amazon makes it so easy to buy organic, natural products.  I get them quick with Prime and I don’t have to shop at 5 different online retailers. Plus, as a mom it doesn’t get much easier than having things delivered right to my door!

Nuts/Seeds-

I love buying my nuts and seeds from Amazon.  You can find all the raw organic nuts and seeds you could want.  These come in handy especially for my veggie bread making and my DIY trail mix for my hubs.  They are some of the most budget friendly options on Amazon too.

Grain Free Flours-

I buy most of my grain free flours on Amazon too.  They have so much variety and the prices you can’t beat.  Especially on AIP I’ve bought most of my flours from them since most of them are specialty flours and can’t be found at even some health stores.

Home Products-

I buy a lot of home products from Amazon on the regular too.  From baby products to natural cleaning products.  Amazon makes it easy and convenient to stay on top of my ordering too with subscribe and save.

Those are items I buy on the regular from Amazon!  Check out my full Amazon store here.

Here are some notable mentions that I have to share with you!  These items are one time larger purchases but totally worth every penny in my book.  We use them every week or everyday if not multiple times per day.  I love with some of the items you buy from Amazon you can actually buy them refurbished or used. I know it may sound a little sketchy but it’s not!  The items usually haven’t even been used but just opened by someone and sent back.  You get basically a new product for a fraction of the price!

Blendtec Total Blender Classic– 

I’m obsessed with my blender.  It does it all.  From smoothies, sauces, raw veggie breads, nut butters- I have yet to discover something it doesn’t do!  Why I love the Blendtec specifically is the Blendtec Twister Jar.  So you have to buy this separate from the Blender but it’s worth it!  It is a smaller jar and it literally makes any nut butter in a minute or less- no joke!  No more using your food processor for 20 minutes.  It also makes amazing sauces, like pesto in a cinch, smaller smoothies, etc.  I use this everyday!  I can’t recommend the Blendtec Blender and Twister Jar enough. Now for Amazon Prime Day be sure to snag these deals on the Blendtec!

  • 7/16 – 5:20pm-11:20pm B07N97HMXG Blendtec Designer 725 and Go Cup Bundle
  • 7/16 – 6:25am-12:25pm B01FHQVZJ6 Blendtec Classic 575 Blender – WildSide+ Jar (90 oz) and Spoonula Spatula BUNDLE White
  • 7/16 – 6:20am-12:20pm B008TVERZ6 // Blendtec Designer Series Blender Black

 

Breville BES870XL Barista Express Espresso Machine

Another item we use everyday.  I love that it’s stainless steel where it counts, like where heat comes in contact with the product with the steamer and espresso shots.  It makes the freshest espresso shots too because it grinds the beans right before you pull the shots through.  The steamer works amazingly too.  We’ve had this espresso machine for almost 8 years and absolutely LOVE it!  It was well worth the investment.  Plus, it looks so sleek on the counter!

Excalibur 3926TB Food Dehydrator

I’ve had my dehydrator for almost a year now and I can’t say enough good things about it.  It has been so fun trying out different recipes in it.  We use it nearly everyday too.  It makes the best kale chips- trust me, the oven has nothing on kale chips from the dehydrator!  We also use it for raw veggie bread all the time.  You can snag the raw veggie bread course here that I took from Deanna from Real Food Lab.  She’s the expert when it comes to raw veggie bread.  It has literally changed my life!  I’ve never eaten so many veggies and loved it.  The best part is, the dehydrator keeps the food in it’s raw state so all the enzymes are preserved.  It’s genius!  Trust me, check out her course and get the dehydrator! It’s amazing!

SodaStream Crystal Sparkling Water Maker Starter Kit

My hubs and I love our sparkling water- a lot!  This soda stream has been a game changer.  Instead of having to buy glass sparkling water(we wouldn’t buy plastic), we just reuse glass bottles and carbonate our own water.  Not only does it save us money, but also helps the environment.  This Soda Stream offers glass bottles and not plastic!

Instant Pot DUO80 8 Qt

I’ve had an Instant Pot for a year now and love it so.  This saves me on so many busy days!  It’s a mom’s best friend and I mean that in the best way.  It can turn chicken into shredded chicken in 30 minutes, make a mean roast in 65 minutes and soups in 20.  It makes you look like Martha Stewart but in half the time.  If you haven’t gotten one, what are you waiting for?

That rounds out some of my top Amazon picks.  What do you love getting from Amazon? Check out my full product list here.  Leave me a comment!

The Best Nontoxic Cookware

The Best Nontoxic Cookware

I finally rounded out the best nontoxic cookware!  I have received this question so much within the last 6 months that I knew I needed to write a blog post.  It’s crazy how many toxic chemicals can be lurking in cookware.  It might not seem like a big deal but...
Caraway Cookware Ceramic Pots

Caraway Cookware Ceramic Pots

Excited to share my full review of Caraway Nontoxic Cookware Ceramic Pots.  This nontoxic cookware option is a new find for me and one I was so pumped to get my hands on and test out!  They launched in the fall of 2019, so they’re not even a year old.  I was intrigued to say the least of their ceramic pots after having tried so many others in the past, I knew there must be something special about this line and there is.

Ceramic Pots

Let me introduce you to the newest wave of ceramic cookware- Caraway!

Let me first share a little information on Caraway Cookware ceramic pots and pans and what makes them so special.  They are made using a mineral based coating that doesn’t leach into your food.  They also emit 60% less C02 than traditional non-stick coatings.  They first start with an aluminum and stainless steel base and then cover it with the mineral based coating.  The mineral coating is free of lead, cadmium and teflon.  As with most ceramic pots and pans it is a mineral-based coating made of silica, oxygen, binders, and color pigments.  

People used to be concerned about the mineral coating chipping but I’ve found high quality ceramic pots and pans don’t do that.  It’s the poor quality, usually inexpensive ones that tend to chip or wear off after a short amount of time.  As I like to say- you get what you pay for!

Caraway Cookware is definitely high quality.  Very durable and stain resistant.  I haven’t had any issues with stains or discolorations.  It really continues to look as good as the day I got it!  Something I really love about the cookware.  It’s also very easy to clean.  All you need is some warm soapy water and a scrub pad and it cleans things up really well.  

Ceramic Cookware

Caraway Cookware comes packaged so well in a recycled cardboard with zero plastics.

The Caraway Cookware Ceramic Pots and Pans Collection

The Caraway Cookware Ceramic Pots comes in 4 cookware options.  

  • Fry Pan(10.5 in.)
  • Sauce Pan(3 Quart)
  • Saute Pan(4.5 Quart)
  • Dutch Oven(6.5 Quart)

You can buy them as a set for $395 or you can shop them individually.  Buying them as a set saves you $65.  The set really is the perfect wedding or shower gift in my opinion.  It would be all the essentials to get you started in the kitchen.  The Caraway Cookware ceramic pots comes in 5 colors.  Cream, Gray, Terracotta, Sage and Navy.  They all look very modern and sleek.  I have the gray ceramic pots collection.  The first thing everyone says when they see them is how good they look with my kitchen!  I couldn’t agree more.  They definitely look very sharp.

Caraway Cookware is comes with lids with a ventilating hole.

Performance

Caraway Cookware is such an easy transition for anyone looking to swap their cookware from traditional non-stick to a nontoxic non-stick option.  You won’t miss your old toxic cookware at all with Caraway!  It’s so easy to use.  It’s completely nonstick.  I haven’t had any issues with food sticking to the ceramic pots or pans at all.  Even my husband was so impressed with the performance.  He couldn’t get over how easy it was to use.  I’ve made ground beef, sausage, chicken, eggs, quesadillas, vegetable stir fry’s and more.  I love the small fry pan for cooking eggs or quick one person meals.  The Sauce Pan I’ve used so much for sauces, oatmeal and pasta.  The Sauté Pan is great for cooking larger one pot meals, meat and stir fry’s and the Dutch Oven is great for soups, chili, whole chickens and broth.  I really have used them all for different things and they work so well.

I love the hanging canvas lid holder too!  Such a great way to organize the lids.  The Sauté Pan, Sauce Pan and the Dutch Oven all come with lids.  Something I love!  They even have a small venting hole in each lid.  The hanging canvas comes with two suctions.  I put it on the side of my fridge and it works great!  So easy to get to the lids.  They also come with magnetic modular pan racks that help keep your ceramic pots and pans organized in your cabinet.  They really have thought of everything!  

Ceramic Cookware

The lids come in a hanging canvas that you can hang inside a cabinet for easy storage.

They also work for any type of stovetop.  Whether you have gas or electric or even induction- Caraway Cookware will work!  

Another point I wanted to make is that they don’t feel quite as heavy as some other ceramic cookware I’ve had in the past.  They are sturdy but not too heavy.  I like being able to still lift the pan with one arm if I need too.  As with any ceramic cookware you want to make sure you use wooden, or silicone utensils on the pans, no stainless steel to prevent scratching.  

I have been so happy with Caraway Cookware and the overall performance of their ceramic pots and pans.  Often you find a cookware and you love how it looks but not how it performs- Caraway does it all.  From the sleek design, to the amazing even cooking, easy cleanup and effortless storage- Caraway makes it easy to switch to nontoxic cookware without thinking twice!

Ceramic pots

Caraway Cookware comes with interlocking magnetic storage shelves for easy storage in cabinets.

Ethical Manufactuering

I also applaud Caraway Cookware for it’s ethical manufacturing.  They go the extra mile to ensure that their employees are paid fairly, with benefits, safe, treated well and work regular hours.  Their ethics also carry over into their environmental practices too.  Their shipments are shipped out in recycled cardboard without any plastic.  They also use biodegradable cork trivets as well and low impact print dyes.
