They’re not your run-of-the-mill foods, so take a couple minutes here to discover them for yourself.
Here they are, with some fab tips on how to use them:
Gelatin Powder, Certified Organic
GOOD SOURCE OF PROTEIN | NATURAL AMINO ACIDS | VERY VERSATILE
Aside from being the star of many desserts like jelly & marshmallows, Gelatin is a go-to for anyone wanting to work on their gut-health (thanks to the glutamic acid that may help repair the mucosal lining of the stomach).
But it’s not the same as the gelatin you can buy from the supermarket (and even many health food stores). That stuff? All it does is give you lovely set desserts.
Not only is this Gelatin fab for gut health, but it also provides a great amount of protein and amino acids that the body needs to function optimally.
– Helps boost digestion
– Helps boost nutrient assimilation
– Aids liver detoxification
– Promotes hormone balance
– Improves sleep
– Is beneficial to the skin, teeth, nails and hair health.
It can be used in making gummy jellies, marshmallows… but you can pretty well use it anything!
Sprinkle some in smoothies, on scrambled eggs, across your spag bol for goodness sake!
These recipes for gummy jellies and marshmallows will definitely give a more exciting twist to your gelatin:
|Gut Healing Jellies||Easy Marshmallows: Honey Sweetened & All Natural|
Peak Performance Blend, Certified Organic
PREMIUM BLEND | COMPLETE VITAMINS AND MINERALS | ONE TBSP DAILY
The first time I tried this, I gotta be honest – I was not a fan of the taste. I’m a big woose when it comes to food that’s good for me, but not awesome for my taste buds 😉
But come the third try? I was officially neutral about the taste, and I wanted to keep drinking it every day because it made me feel good!
So stick at it, it’s worth it.
Peak Performance Blend is a fusion of nutrient-dense real foods that provides a natural source of vitamin C, iron, folate and fibre, and it’s fermented wholefood blend also contains prebiotics and probiotics!
1 tablespoon a day provides your body with the essential vitamins and minerals it needs.
It’s super easy – just add it to juice or water and you’re good to go.
Cacao Chips, Certified Organic
70% CACAO CHIPS | ORGANIC | NO ADDED NASTIES
Some companies rely on clever marketing, Changing Habits just rely on quality products like these Organic Cacao Chips. Create choc chip muffins, cookies, cakes, slices and more with these beautiful organic 70% chocolate chips with no added nasties! Just real food, the Changing Habits way.
Who doesn’t love chocolate chips?! They make any cake, muffin, biscuit and cookie a real treat. But, finding chocolate chips without soy lecithin, emulsifiers, flavours and vegetable oils isn’t easy. Rest assured, these Organic Cacao Chips are 70% cacao and made using only four real food ingredients.
Cacao Melts, Certified Organic
100% PURE CACAO | VERSATILE | NO ADDITIVES OR COLOURINGS
Anybody in their right mind loves chocolate, right?
But when we grab these guys from the supermarket…
…and you get these nasties in return: empty white processed sugar, artificial flavour, and lecithin.
And we know none of that makes our body sing, right?
On the other hand, grab these Cacao Melts and you bring home 100% organic cacao. That leaves you room to add your own choice of sweetener. You might choose my fave – 100% pure and Organic Maple Syrup.
Changing Habits Organic Cacao Melts contain nutrients like magnesium, iron, and zinc and are easy to cook with – you can make homemade chocolates, drinks, ganache, fruit covered in chocolate, cakes, chocolate chip cookies, icings…the list is endless.
Thinking of where to use these cacao melts? Just to remind you, we have a heap of chocolate recipes where you can add these. Here’s some heavenly goodness:
All Natural Seaweed Salt
If you’ve done our free 21-Day Challenge, you’ll know that swapping out table salt to a good quality salt like Himalayan / Celtic / Murray River salt is wholefood 101.
You might also know that seaweed is fantastic for your health (and ironically, has iodising properties. It’s a waaay better version of the iodine that’s literally added back in to table salt after all the good stuff has been taken away from it to sell to industry.)
Changing Habits Seaweed salt is basically a Himalayan salt mixed with organic dulse (seaweed) powder. It’s a land-based and hand-mined salt straight from the source with no refining and no bleaching or anti-caking agents added. It contains 84 minerals and trace elements that are highly beneficial for the body, including magnesium, calcium, copper, potassium and iron.
Unlike normal sea salt, Himalayan Salt is uncontaminated by environmental factors. Better still, Himalayan Salt is renowned for its consistent composition and purity. The composition of the salt is tested regularly and has been shown to consistently contain all the major components of the known 84 mineral and trace elements of Himalayan Crystal Salt.
Organic dulse is a sea vegetable – a natural medicine treasure chest laden with micronutrients and healthy goodness – Dulse contains Vitamins A, B1, B2, B3, B6, B12, C, and E as well as iron, calcium, potassium, magnesium, chromium, zinc and all the trace elements required by the human body.
Iodine is important for essential hormone development in the human body.

Natural Probiotics, Certified Organic
REAL FOOD | PROBIOTIC AND PREBIOTIC | NATURALLY FERMENTED | 1 Tsp PER DAY
Note: If you’re taking the Peak Performance Blend, you don’t need to double-up on this one.
At Changing Habits, they believe that you truly are what you eat. That’s why their Probiotics are never made in a lab, but the way nature intended, with the best organic real food ingredients. Nothing else is added – it’s just real food made from real ingredients sourced from real places. For your optimal health.
Through extensive research, it was discovered that many of the probiotics available on the market are made in Petri dishes, genetically modified and with no prebiotics — the actual food that the probiotic lives on and eats. To top it off, most were packaged in capsule form, some of which can contain artificial properties.
These probiotics contain the best organic ingredients, naturally fermented (by a method trademarked as floraferm), dried and made into a powder.
To put it simply, these prebiotics and probiotics are made from real food, sourced from real places (never in a lab), free from colours, flavours and preservatives. They are also gluten free and vegan friendly.
And your probiotics to juice, water, or sprinkle on your breakfast!
Pet Pro+, Prebiotic & Probiotic, Certified Organic
FERMENTED POWDER | PREBIOTICS & PROBIOTICS | ONE SERVE DAILY
Pet Pro+ is a blend of fermented foods which contain prebiotics and probiotics suitable for your pets. Whether you have cats, dogs, guinea pigs or horses (or anything in between!), just one small serving a day gives your pet the prebiotics and probiotics they need.
Free from dairy, wheat grain, GM foods, colours, flavours, preservatives and fillers, Pet Pro+ helps keep your pet in great health without any added nasties. It is made using certified organic foods which have gone through a natural organic fermentation process and have been dried into a powder.
Pet Pro+ can be mixed with your pet’s food or made into pet treats. Start your pet with ¼ teaspoon and gradually increase to the recommended serve size for your pet. Please note that, just like humans, your pet may have a cleansing period when their body starts to detox shortly after starting Pet Pro+. This may mean more, or smellier poop temporarily. Ewww, but good.
Supreme Green Blend, Certified Organic
PLANT-BASED POWDER | NATURAL SOURCE OF VITAMINS AND MINERALS | CONVENIENT – NO JUICING MESS
Note: If you’re taking the Peak Performance Blend, you don’t need to double-up on this one.
Supreme green blend is a unique blend combination of key green superfoods which are barley grass powder, chlorella, spirulina, broccoli sprout powder, green stevia powder (natural sweetener) and New Zealand kelp powder. It’s simply nature’s way of supplying plant-based vitamins, minerals, trace minerals, phytonutrients, and antioxidants, conveniently. It’s also chemical, pesticide, and herbicide-free.

Colloidal Minerals, Organic
PLANT DERIVED | NATURAL SOURCE OF MINERALS | NO PRESERVATIVES | 1-2 TEASPOONS A DAY
My mother in Susannah (who many of you may know from Member Care) has sworn by Colloidal Minerals for many years.
Sadly, some of our food is lacking in minerals due to soil depletion. One way to boost your minerals and trace elements is to have a daily dose of our organic Colloidal Minerals – a health product that is actually what it says it is…healthy.
True to the Changing Habits philosophy, this Colloidal Minerals has no added nasties like artificial flavours, colours, preservatives, stabilisers or toxic elements.
Just add to juice or water and away you go!
Inca Inchi Oil, Certified Organic
PLANT DERIVED | COLD PRESSED | CONTAINS ESSENTIAL FATTY ACIDS
In our blog, Wonder Which Oil to Use for Which Purpose , I talked about oils and how/when to use each of them based on your needs. We compared Sesame oil, Sunflower oil, MCT oil, Sweet Almond oil, Extra Virgin Avocado oil, Flaxseed oil, Macadamia oil, Hemp Seed oil, Olive oil, etc.
Now comes Changing Habit’s Inca Inchi Oil that won gold medals at the European food fair in France for best new culinary oil. This oil is a virgin cold pressed, additive-free, non-refined vegetable oil and contains Omega 3 (ALA), Omega 6 and Omega 9.
It can be used in much the same way as you would use flaxseed oil – in salad dressings, on vegetables, pasta, to make a mayonnaise, as a dipping sauce, with a vinaigrette or in smoothies.
Keep in the fridge, and it’s best not heated (to preserve the fatty acids).
