Olive Oil Spray

"A good organic olive oil cooking spray is a staple in my kitchen. I'm using La Tourangelle right now. I use this for roasting veggies and when I'm cooking almost anything in a pan."

Egg Molds

"These Crate & Barrel silicone egg molds are so easy to use. I'm a huge fan of breakfast sandwiches, so I use these to make the perfect eggs every time. They're also good for making perfectly round pancakes."

A Better Blender

"I use my Vitamix blender almost every day. My daily smoothie consists of matcha, raw organic protein powder, coconut water, a banana, a tablespoon of coconut oil, and ice. The coconut oil and matcha give me an energy boost. The potassium from the bananas and coconut water provides electrolytes, and the protein powder keeps me full."

Dish Soap

"Since I'm always cooking, I go through a lot of dish soap. My favorite is the Honest Dish Soap in Coastal Surf—this scent is so refreshing. I'm super-excited because our new formula has more than 30% more dishwashing power than the original formula."
