Wendi's Good Things Market

If you enjoy anything pickled, then Wendi's Good Things Market is the place for you. They offer everything from sweet pickles to salsa and pickled okra. The best part is that most of their products are paired with bacon for a delicious and unique flavor!

On top of that, Wendi's offers a wide variety of unique oils and vinegars, including raspberry or dark chocolate balsamic, habanero olive oil, and so much more. You'd be hard-pressed to find similar alternatives to some of their products elsewhere!

They use 100% natural ingredients in their products, and for the quality they offer, everything is fairly priced! We highly recommend their bacon Bavarian sauerkraut, which pairs well with any savory meal of your choice!

If you're unfamiliar with the brand, UMBO is the leader in high-quality, functional mushrooms that are heralded for their impressive health benefits. These benefits go beyond their nutritional content, as they work to:

  • Balance your energy levels
  • Regulating mood and sleep cycles
  • Strengthen your immune function
  • Aid with digestion
  • Enhance your skin's natural glow

The list goes on, but these benefits are enough to brag about. You can choose to supplement these functional mushrooms in the form of capsules, powders, or even energy bars!

Don't get these confused with other types of mushrooms. If functional mushrooms are new to you, they are totally legal, and they are not banned by any recognized anti-doping agency. While further research is still required, their early results have been promising!


Fatworks is a one-stop-shop for all of your oil and fat needs. They offer every type of cooking oil you could imagine, which can offer a wide variety of health benefits, depending on how you use them. Of course, this is without mentioning the superior flavor they add to any savory meal! Some of their most popular items include:

  • Cage-free duck fat
  • Organic cage-free chicken fat
  • Grass-fed beef tallow
  • Organic pork lard
  • American Wagyu tallow
  • Japanese Wagyu tallow

There are plenty of other options to choose from. So when you buy these products from Fatworks, you know that you're getting your fat needs from a reputable source that offers high-quality, cruelty-free animal products.

Don't worry, it isn't just fat that they sell. Fatworks also offers high-quality, cruelty-free bone broth for ramen and other popular cuisines.

One of the best parts is that there's no limit to the quantity you can buy. So whether you need a small, 7-oz jar for home cooking or an entire gallon of pork lard, you can order it here in whatever size pack you need!

These are just a few examples. Golden Poppy offers an organic, natural, and delicious solution if there's a particular ailment or health issue you'd like to work on. We highly recommend the de-stress tea at night, especially during the winter!

All of their products are organic and naturally sourced, so you can't go wrong with them. Feel free to try as many as you like and alternate throughout the week for the most well-rounded health results!
