A brownie a day keeps the fat away!

Ok so that’s is not scientifically proven but there is truth behind it!

How you make ask? Well it comes down to this simple notion. I love brownies. Seriously though, it’s all natural ingredients baked into a yummy goodness of chocolate delight!

How does that have anything to do with weight loss or keeping weight off?

Number one it comes down to quality of food. Number two it’s about enjoying your food. It is so important that you know the ingredients in what you eat. Not just macronutrients or calorie counts. But the basic ingredients. Are they plant based or organic. Are there dies or chemicals? These are important. The more toxic the food the hard it will be for the body to digest. Also will put more strain on your liver, gut, and kidneys. Excess stress can cause a Lowe immune system, increased desire to eat, and increased cortisol levels (thus will cause your metabolism to slow not good)

Now when it comes to enjoying your food. This is such a simple concept but worth heaps of joy and benefits in your life! Once you find high qualities foods, enjoy them!

If a wheatgrass, kale, pea protein, mango smoothie is not up your alley, your mind is literally going to convince your body that it is being poisoned. Ok maybe not that far but pretty close to it! All those super foods in there will practically be wasted and you going to feel crappy that you had to swallow that down. However is a organic grass fed burger on an ancient grain roll with fresh veggies and some baked or steam veggies sounds doable. Then undoubtedly your body (and tummy) are going to be so much happier! Find the huh quality of the foods you love and enjoy meal time! Stop beating yourself up over calorie counts, bad foods ( food is not the enemy toxins are!), or comparing your plate to others.

Eating is a very personal choice and our body’s want and need different things. Heck God gave this Earth so much beauty, delicious flavors and foods! Go out and enjoy it! Now I’m going to go eat a brownie. Yum 😉

Cooking with Essential oils

Young Living provides a plethora of oils for the kitchen with their whole vitality line! Internal support as well as just yummy infused flavors for everyday and holiday traditional dishes!!

Let your imagination take hold, but know these flavors are incredible! You only need the tiniest bit!! Seriously! Even one drop can be intense yet wonderful!

Favorites: adding a drop of lime oil to fresh salsa, lemon oil to humans or chicken, peppermint oil to brownies, oregano oil to spaghetti sauce, thyme with turkey!

Here are some yummy recipes!

Just awesome!

Community

There is nothing like it. As humans, yes even the most introverted anti social of ya all, where designed to desire and thrive off community! Sometimes these days I have noticed this is lacking. People are always rushing, even with scheduled events for this party , to this play date, to this lunch etc. People have hundreds to thousands of friends on Facebook. In this and that group. Connect via Instagram or Snap Chat but quality meaningful community is genuinely missing. Last night I invited some of my fellow oil lovers over. We for the larger part only have the common factor of loving our oils, but it was incredible! Potluck style is so nice these days with busy lives and trying new things always sparks fun conversation! The children had a blast just being kids in and out of the house! The Purification oil diffusing kept the outside annoyances from coming in, the mushrooms where sautéed in oregano oil, and shots of Ningxia Red always starts great conversations about fitness, detox, weight management, and so much more.

But the best part, is everyone left just a bit happier. Truly being connected with others means so much to nourishing our souls and lives. No judgement, no pretense, no agenda. It was amazing!

If you have not join my oily team I would love you to be a part of it! To get connected and build relationships is such a wonderful thing! To be on this oily journey to wellness and a lifestyle of toxic free living with a group of different but beautifully made people is exactly my reason for being here. Means the world to mean!

I look forward to expanding my meetings and maybe one day hosting larger and larger events with so much love, food, oils, and community. For now YOU will be in my prayers. Take a step out and become a part of a community ❤

God bless!
