My Shopping List: Grocery Shopping with Dr. Christy Garner

We are huge fans of Dr. Christy Garner, and not just because she has an infectious smile and is the living, breathing model of health, but because she happens to be the renaissance woman of the wellness world. Classically trained as a doctor of chiropractics, she revolutionized her practice into a holistic haven, reinventing her approach to health by focusing on the root cause. “Defying your DNA” is her motto and her focus, which she now teaches nationwide as a keynote speaker at renown health events such as the Women’s Wellness Conference and the Longevity Conference.

So what does such a knowledgeable health guru have in her shopping cart? We stole her shopping list and are looking forward to putting her best tips into practice.

From our friends

    • Hi Lindsay! I know it’s tough but I would recommend avoiding ” breakfast bars” and such, which will help with your food combining goal of avoiding nuts with food. I know it’s hard when we are all on the go but even healthy “organic, raw, gluten free etc” bars have to go through some processing. I always tell patients that a raw, organic, gluten free, vegan etc. bar didn’t grow on a breakfast bar tree somewhere even though it seems so healthy. Maybe you could make a low temp homemade bar without nuts? You’re totally right that nuts are notoriously difficult to digest. Good luck to you on your health journey!

  2. I completely agree with the list! Thats how pretty much what I stick to when I shop. Good to know about the yeast extract. I didn’t realize that. But also a staple is coconut amions. mmm.. Great on Kale salads with avo. Next Organics is seriously a fav indulgence. Anything with cashews and chocolate, Im there.
    I have been trying better with food combining though. I wonder what her thoughts are on it? I know that nuts with anything is really bad on digestion and I find that to be the hardest thing for me to avoid. Its always in bars, for breakfast, etc. Same with fruits.

  3. Gourmet vanilla powder sounds delish. Can you recommend a brand?

  4. How do you use the the vanilla powder??? As a sweetener. Or just to give things a vanilla flavor??
