Jackie’s Fave Things
I get asked a lot about the books I read, recipe books I use, kitchen and business, & household tools I use. So here is a list of some of my fave things. Several have been mentioned in blog posts or shared on social media. Especially if you follow my Insta Stories!
Let me know what things you want me to share!
Such an awesome cookbook for people who want yummy healthy dishes. Whether you follow an AIP, PALEO or KETO way of cooking this cookbook is for you.
Want to feel empowered ladies? Want permission to dust off the false beliefs you have been telling yourself and given permission to go after what you want? This is a must read or even better listen!
If you have not watched Marie Kondo Tidying Up on Netflix its a must. I love to organize and this series inspired me to organize even more. I LIVE in leggings. I found these to hang up my leggings and OMG game changer! Cheap, easy, perfection every fit girl needs one!
Every woman knows they need silk pillowcases to reduce frizz and static while they sleep. These babies are so soft and are also great for your face. No waking up to crease lines all over your cheeks. Inexpensive beauty sleep at its best.
As someone who works out daily, and teaches multiple fitness classes a week, my hair is in a pony tale quite often. However every fitness girl knows they don’t wash their hair daily. The problem with regular hair ties is it leaves a GIANT lump in your hair. So you can never wear it down. But these amazing bad boys keep my hair secure during my most intense workouts and allow me to wear it down and straight in between gym sessions.
Like I said, a fit chick does not have time to wash her hair daily. In fact I only wash mine 2-3 times a week. But some days I do my own workout and teach 2 classes. So this beauty secret keeps my hair shiny, styled and smelling great no matter how crazy my sweat session was. This is NOT yo mama’s old school dry shampoo!
This is thee best mascara I have ever worn. Full and luscious almost looks like when I wear lashes!
I have an old GIANT ring light that I use in my office for training videos or going live on FB or IG. However I often go live in my home gym or kitchen as I am cooking. Its too bulky to drag my big ring light around. This is so easy to use in my tiny kitchen, or move around my home gym. Its perfect lighting for photos, home videos or those live videos. Even if you don’t have a business and just need more light this is perfect.
This I have used the past two years and it literally goes everywhere with me. Including our honeymoon to multiple countries. I use it daily at home or in the gym to film my workout videos. Its super light weight and holds your phone vertical for IG stories or horizontal for your FB, IG or Youtube feed. Best investment ever and its cheap!
I used this for years before getting the portable stand selfie stick. Ive owned about 4. They are best if you don’t use them daily or don’t move them from window to window. Otherwise they suction great. I even brought it with me on a fitness business trip to the Bahamas and used it in the gym there.
Even if you are not vegan (I am not) but can’t have grains or gluten, choose not too or want to watch your carbs, these wraps are so good!
I keep these in my gym bag, I use them with my personal training clients and I throw them in my suitcase. Perfect for training the lower body and upper body. Multiple strengths and they don’t rip! Perfect extra bands to go along with 80 Day Obsession!
This is one of the best sugar substitutes I have found that does not bother my stomach, GI or raise blood sugar. Its great for baking.
This brand is not only gluten free, nut free, soy free and dairy free but also does not use artificial fillers and chemicals. Its my go to brand when baking and the dark chocolate is the one I use. The more you refine your taste buds the sweeter it tastes and these ones dont taste as dark as many other dark chocoalte bars out there.
I drink A TON of coffee. I also use decaf in the afternoon. I have stomach and digestive issues and recently went through lots of gut health testing. This stuff tastes amazing and is so much easier on my tummy than all the other coffee brands I was using.
I put that ‘ish on everything! It tastes amazing on meat and veggies. Super low to no calorie, its all natural, perfect if you are following WHOLE30 or just want a healthier sauce.
At least once a week I use this to make zoodles for me and the hubby! Super easy to use and clean!
