Organic Golden Flaxseeds – Used every single day, I grind them fresh in my spice grinder which tastes wonderful as a topping for oatmeal or even alone for my daughter! It’s part of Dr. Greger’s Daily Dozen checklist.

Natural Non-Fortified Nutritional Yeast Flakes (24 oz.) – I’ve been using this for years to avoid unwanted additives. My son and I enjoy it so much! We mix 2 TBS with some water for a tasty umami-flavored paste every single day! I also use it in various recipes.

Organic Date Sugar – This is an excellent 1:1 replacement for other processed sugars and includes several nutrients as described in Dr. Greger’s outstanding video. I use it to sweeten oatmeal, pancakes, waffles, cookies, muffins, etc.

Organic Cacao Powder – This is a staple ingredient used in my homemade overnight oats, chocolate nice creams, and mint-chocolate soy milk!

Organic Goji Berries – These are outstanding as little sweet morsels sprinkled into oatmeal or as a standalone snack!

Tasty Bite Indian Entree Channa Masala – My son and I both enjoy these while on road trips and sometimes in a pinch at home too. Note that it does contain a trivial amount of oil and added sugar. I also found them at my local Target for a slightly higher price.

Butler Soy Curls – These are an excellent meat replacement given their texture and protein content! I often made BBQ Soy Curls during extended family road trips.


B12 Vegan Vitamin – My kids and I take one of these ~3 times per week. Vegans and/or WFPB people MUST ensure a reliable source of vitamin B12 in their diet to avoid irreparable harm. As a supplement, Dr. Greger recommends getting cyanocobalamin due to higher shelf stability over the active methylcobalamin form.

Vegan Omega 3 – I’ve been taking this for years and also give them to my kids to increase our DHA intake.

MRM Vegan Vitamin D3 & K2 – I’ve been taking these for years. In earlier 2021, I had my D3 levels tested which I felt were lower than desired so I’m now trying each of these 5000 IU D3 vitamins: Nested Naturals D3+K2 and Sports Research D3+K2.

Vegan Vitamin D3 Gummy – Both of my kids love them!


Vitamix blender – This is indispensable in my kitchen as I use it daily for smoothies and more. Vitamix and Blendtec blenders are definitely worth the premium cost given their power and reliability. Unsure which one to get? Check out this great review site explaining the different Vitamix blenders.

Instant Pot Pressure Cooker – This is another must-have item for optimal plant-based eating! I use mine daily for cooking dry beans, sweet potatoes, rice, quinoa, greens, soups, etc. I also have an 8-quart InstantPot for larger recipes.

Cuisinart Food Processor – A good food processor makes quick work of veggies for super salads, nice creams, etc. FYI, I purchased the larger 14 cup model DFP-14BCNY.

Silicone Bread and Loaf Pan Set – This is excellent for making lentil loaves!


How Not To Die by Dr. Michael Greger – I already loved his website and was thrilled by his incredible book that I got in 2016! It’s even being used for reference in some medical schools!

How Not To Diet by Dr. Michael Greger – For people looking to lose some weight, this book is the go-to for them! Here’s a great video presentation by Dr. Greger about the book.
