Amazon Prime Deals 2023 are just around the corner, but it’s time to skip the Amazon scroll and use this blog post to find discounted products that will support your health and nutritional goals!

With inflation running wild and affecting households far and wide, it’s time to get real picky about where we spend our hard-earned cash. And let me tell you, when it comes to food and my health, I don’t settle for anything less than pure confidence in my purchasing decisions. So, I went on a wild adventure through the Amazon jungle of deals from July 11 to 12, and boy, did I find some hidden treasures during this epic two-day sale. You won’t want to miss out on these, trust me!

But wait, let me spill the beans on what I looked for while sifting through the digital aisles:

  • Percentage discount – I had my magnifying glass out, searching for discounts that are so jaw-dropping, they’ll make you do a double-take. We’re talking about savings that actually make a difference in your pocket!
  • Reviews – Who wants to gamble on sketchy products? Not me, and not you either! I made sure to handpick goodies that have been showered with at least 4-star ratings, so you know they’re top-notch and customer-approved.
  • Usability – Forget about duds that gather dust in the corner. I specifically sought out items that’ll actually make a positive impact on your health journey. Whether it’s helping you prioritize self-care, manage stress like a boss, or infusing your life with joyful movement, these deals are the real deal!


Last thing before we get into all these sales, you will need a Prime membership to actually take advantage of these deals. You can sign up for $7.49/month. If nothing else, the free 1-2 day shipping is worth that amount!

To this day, the KitchenAid has been one of my all time favorite gifts (my mom got me one on my 16th birthday!). 

Elevate your culinary skills with the KitchenAid Artisan Series 5 Stand Mixer, the perfect addition to your kitchen! Its sleek design and powerful performance make it a game-changer in the kitchen. This stand mixer effortlessly handles even the toughest ingredients, guaranteeing smooth and consistent results every time. The generous 5-quart stainless steel bowl provides ample space for mixing large batches of dough or batter, while the included splatter shield keeps your kitchen clean and tidy.

My previous knife set had been around for a few years too many, and the knives weren’t getting sharp anymore. I knew that dull knives are 1) more frustrating and 2) more likely to result in cutting myself, so I spent time researching the top quality knife sets at the most affordable cost and landed on Zwilling. I’ve been using my set for a year and am still in awe of how well these knives have held up!

Crafted with premium stainless steel, these knives offer unmatched durability and cutting-edge performance. The set includes versatile blades such as chef, utility, and paring knives, catering to all your culinary needs. With ergonomic handles ensuring a comfortable grip, and a sleek storage block keeping your knives organized, this set is a game-changer. As an AMAZING bonus, this Zwilling Knife Set is 26% off – bringing it from $500 down to under $370!

At first, I thought cold brew was just going to be a trend, but it seems as though it’s here to stay!

The Primula Pace Cold Brew Iced Coffee Maker (54% off) boasts a perfect 6-cup size, making it ideal for preparing just the right amount of cold brew to satisfy your caffeine cravings. Whether you’re hosting a brunch or simply enjoying a refreshing glass (of decaf) on a sunny afternoon, this coffee maker has got you covered.

Crafted with a durable glass pitcher, the Primula Pace ensures that your cold brew is brewed and stored in a safe and efficient manner. The airtight lid helps to lock in the freshness and flavors, allowing you to enjoy your cold brew at its peak. And when it’s time to clean up, you’ll appreciate the convenience of the dishwasher-safe design, making maintenance a breeze.

Fun fact: You can cold steep tea as well! It actually cuts out some of the bitterness. A few of my favorite teas are:

My life has changed since buying this Ninja Foodi 13-in-1 oven. I went from spending 10-15 minutes waiting for the oven to preheat and cooking baked oatmeal for 40 minutes to doing it all (preheat and cooking) in under 20 minutes!

The flip-away storage is PERFECT if you want to save counter space (especially if you’re a military family with frequently changing house sizes with each PCS). 

It has 13 functions – from rapid bake to dehydrate and air fry. I highly recommend this product, and you can save over $100 now with the renewed version.

Rather have a traditionally shaped air fryer? Check out the Instant Pot Vortex Plus, on sale now for 46% off (under $70!).

A Dutch oven (38% off Amazon brand, 25% off Le Creuset) is a versatile and indispensable kitchen tool that can make cooking easier in several ways:

  • Even Heat Distribution:  The thick walls and heavy lid ensure that heat is evenly distributed throughout the cooking process. This means your food cooks more evenly, reducing the risk of hot spots or unevenly cooked dishes.
  • Versatility in Cooking Methods: Dutch ovens are designed to be used on various heat sources, including stovetops, ovens, and even campfires. This versatility allows you to seamlessly transition from browning ingredients on the stovetop to slow-cooking or braising in the oven, all in the same pot. This eliminates the need for multiple pans and simplifies the cooking process.
  • One-Pot Cooking: With a Dutch oven, you can prepare entire meals using just one pot. This means fewer dishes to clean up afterward!
  • Retention of Moisture: Dutch ovens excel at retaining moisture, which helps keep meats tender and flavors concentrated.
  • Heat Efficiency: Dutch ovens require lower heat settings compared to other cookware. Once the pot is heated, it maintains the desired temperature for longer periods, reducing the need for constant adjustments. This energy efficiency saves both time and resources during the cooking process.
  • Durability and Longevity: These pots are built to withstand high temperatures and frequent use, making them a long-term investment in your kitchen arsenal. With proper care, a Dutch oven can last for generations.

Movement Areas

Notice I said “movement area” and not gym? If you’ve been following for a while, you know I focus on joyful movement more than rigid fitness in a gym. Why? Because if we don’t enjoy what we’re doing, it can be hard to keep up with. You might feel the pressure to follow the status quo and join a gym, but if hiking brings you joy and a gym does not – DEFY those rules

There’s just something about kettlebell swings at the beginning of a workout… 

From swings to squats, these compact weights offer endless possibilities for full-body workouts. Engage your core, build functional strength, and improve cardio health. Choose from various weights to match your fitness level. Compact and portable, kettlebells bring convenience to your fitness routine. 

Not a fan of kettlebells? Good ol’ fashioned dumbbells are also on sale (29% off)!

I recently decided to keep an eye out for a new smartwatch to take my fitness goals to the next level. 

On my list of considerations are: 

Bowflex SelectTech 552 Adjustable Dumbbell

If dumbbells are part of your joyful movement regimen, check out this adjustable set from Bowflex that’s 22% off. 

Why I love it: As a military family, we move often and space is a commodity we don’t always have. With this set, you could use as little as 5 pounds and as much as 52.5 pounds per dumbbell! Also, for my ladies who may get intimidated by their spouse’s strength (like I sometimes do), this is a great way to have versatile strength training equipment that the whole family can use.

I love this Sony bluetooth speaker (20% off) for several reasons. One, it matches the Defy Nutrition brand mighty well, but more importantly, it has 4.5 stars with over 7,300 reviews. It is compact, lightweight, portable, and can be used outdoors. So whether your joyful movement is dancing, hiking, gardening, boxing, or swimming, you can take it anywhere! 


Mattress and Bed Frame

Even though this isn’t on Amazon, if you are in the market for a new hybrid mattress, you MUST check out the Layla mattress. This is a special $160+ off coupon for the Layla mattress (not related to Prime Day!), which I can personally vouch for its comfort. We paired the memory foam hybrid with an ergonomic adjustable bed frame that even has gentle head and foot massagers to help you relax after a long day! Plus the remote has pre-programmed positions, including the Zero Gravity position invented by NASA to help astronauts during take off.

Oh, and even though this isn’t a Prime Day deal, you must invest in this down comforter ($10 off coupon available)

Bamboo Sheets

Remember how we talked about lack of sleep and how it can lead us to craving high fat, high sugar foods? 

When we are too hot (or too cold!) at night, we don’t sleep as well. For this reason, bamboo sheets (39% off) can be an awesome purchase. This sheet set has 4.4 stars and over 186k reviews!

Pura Fragrance Diffuser

This isn’t a Prime Day deal, but I have to share because it’s been a game changer for my sleep routine.

Pura is a fragrance diffuser that utilizes essential oils. It holds up to 2 fragrances at a time and is connected to an app. I’ll admit – at first, I wasn’t a fan of needing an app to use the diffuser. But, it’s actually been incredibly beneficial. I scheduled a relaxing scent for nighttime (about an hour before bed) and a bright, invigorating scent for the morning (about 15 minutes before I wake up). Use the code MARYC15 to save 15%.
