PRIMAL PLATE LOVES
Over the years I have tried and tested hundreds of products, from organic ingredients in my recipes to eco-friendly household cleaning products. In addition to the handy shopping links you’ll find in most of my recipes (click on an ingredient to find where to buy), below is a quick-view guide to all my favourite suppliers.
I regularly order online from the websites on this page as part of my weekly shop for four good reasons: To only use the very best organic produce; to support smaller, independent businesses with strong, ethical animal and environmental welfare practices; to banish toxic chemicals from our home; and to ensure that my family and I are using the purest products available that support health, longevity and wellbeing.
If everyone made the switch away from our killer food supply and toxic household and personal care products and spent their money with independent, ethical businesses like these, the world would be a much better, cleaner, healthier place. Click the header links in gold to take you through to their websites. Happy shopping with a clear conscience!
Food & Groceries

Their animal welfare practices are exceptional, in fact you can join their online community for your weekly dose of joyful animal videos. Emma’s Dairy at Gazegill provide all our raw whole milk, milked from happy, free-roaming, long-lived, organic cows. Their raw milk is an excellent source of goodness, not to be compared with milk from cruel commercial dairy farms or even conventional organic milk.

An absolute life-changing water filtration system at the hub of our home, we chose the Propure Gravity Water Filter. This filter not only does away with buying expensive mineral water in harmful plastic bottles, it removes all the nasties and most of the damaging fluoride from tap water, and the taste and clarity is noticeably superior. We drink, cook, make tea and coffee, and fill the cat bowl with this filtered water, in fact we even use this on the bird table so they can enjoy the benefits! Read my online review here.
It's been an ambition of mine for about 30 years to own my own sauna! I finally invested and love starting my day this way. The health benefits of infrared saunas are numerous and well documented.
