All of the items you see below were all incredibly helpful in healing from cancer naturally and are still used in my kitchen today. 😀
Of course you could totally go and buy these at your nearest store or other online shop, but here you will find them conveniently all in one place. And if you buy them through the links on this page, you will support the efforts of AntiCancerMom in teaching about non-toxic approaches for healing and preventing cancer. 🍏
If I could only have one product for my kitchen, the Vitamix would be it. Yes- I know it may seem expensive (because that’s the objection I made to my husband when he bought one for me,) but you will never regret owning a Vitamix. I use mine for everything- making fruit and veggie smoothies, juicing, baby food, salsas, soups, nut butters, and vegan “ice cream.” This is a MUST HAVE for the individual choosing to heal from cancer using non-toxic therapies or someone wanting to make healthy lifestyle changes a way of life.
Vitamix – Reconditioned
If you’re on a budget but still want all the great quality the Vitamix offers recondidtioned models starting at $299! Again, either way, you will never regret owning a Vitamix. It is bar-none the most used appliance in my kitchen, offering years of health and service to you and your family.
A quality juicer is different than a Vitamix in that it removes the fiber from the vegetable or fruit, allowing your body to assimilate nutrients more efficiently and in larger quantities. It also adds variety to how you consume raw fruits and vegetables. I didn’t juice in the beginnings of my health journey because I knew of people who would start juicing with great passion and eventually become discouraged to the point of quitting because of one thing: THE CLEAN-UP TIME. This juicer takes 4 minutes from start to completely clean- which is just one reason why it’s my favorite. It also juices quickly, has a wide opening so you don’t have to chop before you juice, and it is a high quality Breville brand juicer. ($299)
Berkey Water Filter
By far the Berkey Water Filter is the best filtering and most economical of all the water filters out there. It has been around for decades and has led the way in the water filtering movement and is one of the few systems that filters fluoride out as well. (Make sure to add fluoride filters to your order!) Another perk- the primary filters last for 3,000 gallons of water! For my family of five, that is almost 3 years of fresh, filtered water. We switched from an alkaline water machine to Berkey because it is simply more cost effective and provides clean and pure water. For our family of five we purchased the Imperial Berkey (4.5 gallons) with two white and two fluoride filters for ~$350.
When using the Budwig Protocol to heal from a major illness, an immersion blender is essential for best blending of the mixture and easy clean-up. You can also use it to make many other wonderful soups and other recipes. ($33)
Although the Vitamix can act as an effective food processor, sometimes I need a wider container and other chopping options. I absolutely adore this food processor. It comes with additional plates for slicing and shredding which I use when making zucchini and apple chips or shredding carrots for soups. And of course, my favorite: the clean-up is super convenient. ($49)
Nesco Gardenmaster Food Dehydrator
Compared to some of the more important items you’ll need to live a whole foods lifestyle, a dehydrator serves a different purpose: VARIETY. And even FUN too! When I was living my natural cancer protocol, I got really bored with smoothies, juices, and salads all the time. A dehydrator allows you to dry raw fruits and veggie at a low temperature, preserving the life-giving enzymes and providing a much needed tasty snack to chew on and enjoy. I like this Nesco dehydrator because it is cheaper than its competitor by almost 50%. If you’re not a serious living foodist and just an occasional to moderate dehydrator, I think the Nesco Gardenmaster would be a good fit for your needs. ($100)
Nesco Veggie Trays
These trays complement the Nesco Gardenmaster Dehydrator and allows for easy clean up and support for smaller foods that may slip through the cracks of the standard trays. ($8)
Nesco Fruit Trays
These trays allow for the making of homemade fruit roll ups and leathers in the Nesco Gardenmaster dehydrator (above.) Great for blending veggies in with fruits for sneaking vegetables into your kids’ diets! ($8)
Just in case 4 trays isn’t enough for your Nesco Gardenmaster dehydrator, you can add more and dehydrate up to 20 trays at once! CRAZY. ($20)
A well-made, popular 9-tray dehydrator for the serious living-foodist. We used these dehydrators during my time at The Living Foods Institute. ($200)
Excalibur Dehydrator Sheets
These non-stick sheets are used in the Excalibur dehydrator, making for swift and easy clean up. ($15)
Another tool to add fun and variety to your whole foods lifestyle. My favorite thing to do is spiralize zucchini or squash and lightly steam for some delicious and healthy lentil spaghetti. The best part – my kids LOVE it. Speaking of stuff my kids love, here’s another tip – you can also spiralize certain fruits, then dehydrate them, resulting in some fun chewy shapes. ($34)
With all of these new kitchen appliances and home made food preparation, we ran out of room in our small apartment’s kitchen. So we bought this beautiful and well-made kitchen cart. We also have rolled it into our living room for extra counter space during Super Bowl parties. ($260)
