Hi, I'm Megan! The writer, recipe developer, and CEO here at Scratch To Basics. This is a list of carefully selected resources that I recommend for anyone looking to eat more healthy food and live their best life.
I have an affiliate relationship with many of the companies listed below, which means I believe in their mission and I want to help them get their product out to the people who need it. It also means that I may receive a small commission if you follow my links and make a purchase. Rest assured, there is no additional cost to you, and often it will be beneficial to you to shop through my links because of exclusive discounts JUST for you (my readers).
I've personally used every single one of these products and services and I'm here as a resource to you. Please don't hesitate to reach out if you have any questions about how they work, or how to use them best.
By the way, if you're looking for my products (the one's I've personally created), check my online shop here.
Meal Planning Resources
Their motto is Shop once, prep once, enjoy stress-free meals all week. Their meal planning system has completely changed my dinner time routine (for the better). They provide Paleo and Gluten Free meal plans, with a grocery list, prep instructions, and cooking instructions.
The idea is that you take a couple hours to prep each week and then when it's time to cook dinner, you've already prepped the meal and you're halfway done. Honestly I didn't know what to do with myself for the first week. I had so much free time, and no rush!
Prep Dish has generously given YOU $10 off an annual subscription with my code: SCRATCH10. Read my full review here.
Plan to Eat helps busy families get healthy dinners on the table. Instead of providing recipes, Plan to Eat provides a place to store YOUR recipes.
You can use their app to collect recipes from anywhere (any websites, cookbooks, or recipe cards) and plan your meals for weeks or months to come.
Nourishing Food Resources
My family has been taking these concentrated plant powders (capsules for the grown-ups, gummies for the kiddos) and I can honestly say we have no plans of ever stopping. I've noticed improved immunity in our family, fewer headaches, and a decrease in anxiety about how many nutrients we are (or aren't) getting on a daily basis.
Yes, we still eat healthy. But do we eat 7-13+ servings of fruits and vegetables every day without these? Nope, pretty sure we don't. Which is why we love our Juice Plus products. Follow me over on IG to learn more about how we use this stuff in our day-to-day.
In each daily serving you'll get over 30 fruits and vegetables (and all their phytonutrients) boosting your immunity, and improving your overall health with ease.
Kettle & Fire has a ton of different flavors of bone broth AND soups to stock up your pantry. I've tried powdered bone broth, and homemade bone broth, and then Kettle & Fire shelf-stable bone broth. Personally, I think Kettle & Fire wins in terms of convenience and flavor.
I usually have a few jars of bone broth in the freezer for those times I plan ahead. For the times I don't, I reach in the cupboard for Kettle & Fire. Here's my Kettle and Fire Bone Broth Review so you can learn more about it.
In your healthy eating journey, you might struggle to find quality meat in the stores near you. Crowd Cow is the next best thing to shopping straight from the farm.
They partner with independent farms and provide the highest quality of meat and deliver it to your door. They even have a membership model that we've been using for months.
Pastured chicken, grass fed & grain fed beef, wild caught seafood, and more. Plus, you get to learn a little bit about the farm your meat came from. Read my full Crowd Cow review here.
This is a great online grocery store for household goods, pantry staples, and also meat (if you want to buy in bulk). They have something for every dietary need and lifestyle. We've used them on and off over the years, depending on our diet and access to grocery stores.
Gluten free snacks, hypoallergenic cleaning products, and so much more. Read my review to help you determine if Thrive Market is worth it for you.
It started as a farm, and has grown to be that and so much more. Azure is an online grocery market that's dedicated to organic and natural principles.
We’ve shopped here for bulk foods, animal feed, yogurt, grass fed meat, fresh seasonal produce, and more. They’re based out of Oregon, but they ship throughout the country.
Healthy Lifestyle Resources
When you buy supplements, you want them to be all natural, ethically sourced, non-GMO. You want the good stuff. And Perfect Supplements
delivers over-delivers. I've personally tried the collagen powder, bone broth powder, gelatin powder, liver capsules, fermented kale powder, and magnesium powder from Perfect Supplements. Their collagen powder is certified glyphosate free, from grass fed cows, and dissolves great in our drinks.
Honestly, their liver capsules are the best invention ever - especially if you have a hard time eating organ meat straight. I highly recommend their products. PLUS they have a 25% off bundle discount which makes their products an incredible deal!
I've fallen in love with my Beautycounter products. If you've ever tried them, you understand why!

We got our Berkey in 2020 when I was working with my functional nutritionist to get to the root cause of my Hashimoto's. We've been using it ever since and love the way the water tastes and feels in our bodies.
Plus, I love how the Berkey looks on the counter!
