Are you Obsessed with Essential Oils?

1482764_10152194094475480_1260871638_n

2 years ago today I became an Young Living Essential Oils Member!

I am BEYOND Obsessed!!!

LOL!!

I started using oils for my stress due to working full time and going to school part time.

I had tested and applied for an RN program the day after I turned 40 in September of 2012.

I had been stressing about getting in the program and how we were going to make things work if I got in since we needed my income for bills due to purchasing a 2nd home.

Things were NUTS around here and I was having lots of challenging days at work.

I had been talking to a friend of mine that was using oils with her daughter who had just been diagnosed with Autism and she suggested that I talk to her friend about oils to help with my stress.

Thankfully, I picked up the phone and called to inquire about the oils and I signed up with a starter kit that night!

Within a week of getting my starter kit, I got the call from the school that I applied to and I got in the RN program!

I started posting little things here on Facebook about how the oils were helping me and a friend that I had never met in person, but we knew each other from a diet group on Facebook asked me about what I was using and we started chatting about oils.

She signed up a week after I started my RN program and now her and I have grown our team that started with just her and I to over 640 people!!!

She has fallen in LOVE with the oils and she has become Gold within 18 months with YL!

I am still working my way to Silver, but I am not able to do the classes like she is due to school.

Needless to say, once I am finished with school in June, I will be ramping up my YL business even MORE!!!!!

Would you to join us?

If you would like to learn more please contact us and we can chat.

Peace, Love, & Hugs!

Brain Fuel

IMG_0973

Do you ever wake up in the morning and have to drag yourself out of bed wondering how am I going to find time for a healthy breakfast?

I am SURE that I am NOT alone in this scenario!

Today was one of those days when I was in a super hurry to get to school for an exam, yet I needed some brain fuel.

There is nothing worse than getting to school for an exam and not having any energy to get through the exam, much less get an A on it.

This morning I was in a hurry to get out the door to school, but I NEEDED breakfast!

Taking a quick look in the fridge I saw a bottle of NingXia Red, a box of NingXia Nitro, and a box of coconut milk.

Thats when the magic happened!

I grabbed what I saw and started mixing!

I have had NingXia Red and coconut milk together before, but I have never added a NingXia Nitro to it.

Well, let’s just say this is going to become a regular habit now!

Almost 12 hours later I am still going strong and I got an A on my pharmacology exam this morning! 😉

So, without making you wait ANY longer here is the low down on this amazing concoction.

Brain Fuel Recipe

2 oz NingXia Red

1 tube NingXia Nitro

4 to 6 oz Coconut Milk or other non-dairy milk of your choice

3 or 4 Drops of your favorite Young Living Citrus Essential Oil (ONLY YOUNG LIVING!)

Ice and Water to make 16 oz

Optional add in: 2 scoops of Balance Complete Protein Powder

Mix all ingredients together in a glass container or blender if using protein powder and Enjoy!

I came across a blog post for cookies that looked super simple and super yummy.
Well, me being me and a recipe tweakier, I had to tweak the recipe!!!! 😉
So what started out with bananas and oatmeal on one blog, has now turned into a super yummy protein packed treat!

Not Your Typical Egg McMuffin!

Egg McMuffin

Most mornings I am scrambling around trying to get ready and out the door for school or work in what seems like seconds! I rarely have time during the week for breakfast, let alone something that is healthy and not loaded with sugar. A couple of years ago I went to a home party and one of the dishes that was made was egg muffins to show how the well the pan they were cooked in worked. Well, I was not sold on the product, but I was sold on the recipe! Since learning how to make the muffins I have adapted the recipe to fit my taste and what I have on hand.

Since Sunday’s are normally my catch up day around the farm house I decided that I would help myself out this week and make a batch of these super easy and super yummy egg muffins. Not having a lot of time these days with school, work, the farm, and life, it is always helpful when I can grab something quick and pop it in the micro to eat on the go. Two of these little beauties in the micro for 45 to 60 seconds and you are good to go! Not only are they easy and quick, but they are good for you too! Packed with protein and veggies, you cannot go wrong with them.

IMG_3998

 

One of the greatest things about these muffins is that you can put just about anything in them. These can be made with or without cheese, depending on your diet. Some days I use bacon, ham, spinach, artichokes, and cheese. And other days I use sausage, spinach, and cheese. This time I had a little bit of already cooked bacon so I added to the sausage and spinach as the sausage and spinach were cooking. Other nice thing about these muffins is how easy they are to make! Depending on what I have going on and what I am putting in the muffins I do not always cook the filling. However, when I am using sausage I always cook the meats and veggies before filling the muffin cups.

IMG_4003

I use my pampered chef stoneware muffin pan that I have had for years and years! I always spray the pan with olive oil in my pc spritzer. I was once a pampered chef rep, so I have LOTS of pc products and I highly recommend pampered chef products to  my friends and family. 🙂 Ok, back to the recipe! 😉

IMG_4005

The Goods

1 pound of breakfast sausage

5 to 6 strips of bacon

1 bag or frozen or fresh spinach (cook with meat if using fresh)

Garlic, salt, and pepper to taste

6 to 8 eggs (depending on the size of your pan, I use 8 eggs) ( Farm Fresh if possible)

1 to 2 dollops of sour cream (tbsp, I like the sound of dollop better 😉 ) (omit if paleo)

1/2 cup of shredded cheese (omit if paleo)

IMG_4006

The How To

Heat Oven to 350 degrees

Brown the sausage until fully cooked, add bacon and spinach, cook until water from spinach is gone. Spray pan with olive oil or other non-stick spray (I do not use Pam due to the chemicals in the can). Fill each muffin cup with equal parts of meat and veggie mixture and top with equal amounts of shredded cheese. Beat eggs with sour cream and add equal amounts to each muffin cup. Place pan in the oven and bake for 15 to 20 minutes until done. Remove from oven and allow to cool to 5 to 10 minutes before removing from pan. Eat and Enjoy! 🙂

IMG_4010

Note: I always check around 10 minutes and turn the pan around due to my oven not cooking evenly.

Note to self-Get New Oven! 😉

If you have any questions on these muffins or if you have any feedback please let me know via Facebook. I would love to know how you liked them and what you put in them!

Peace, Love, and Hugs,

Amazing Sugar Free Jam

IMG_3754

In the hustle and bustle of daily life it can be difficult to make healthy and economical  meals. However, with the start of my new nursing program Monday morning I am trying to save as much as I can and eat as healthy as I can. The hardest part of working full time and going to school part time for me has been my diet. I can do really well for months and then once I slip from my day to day diet, all of hard work to be healthy seems to get pushed to the side. I am battling constant stress and I am working on getting better and healthy again. In my quest for getting healthy, I have been following some pretty amazing real food blogs and I have learned a LOT! Billy Always loves it when I make something new and is always happy to watch me in the kitchen. 🙂

IMG_3752

Today was no different than any other Sunday for me and scroll through food blogs, however, I came across an Amazing recipe that I wanted to try! Wild Blueberry Chia Seed Jam by http://healthylivinghowto.com One look at the name of the recipe and I knew it was for ME! I love ANYTHING CHIA and to add it fruit to make a jam sent me straight to the kitchen! I always have frozen fruit in my freezer and I grabbed the first bag I saw, which was strawberries! I used the basis of the original recipe, but I added an extra 1tbsp of chia seeds and 3 extra tbsp of water to balance the jam. This recipe can be tweaked to your liking very easily.

I have to say that this recipe is extremely simple to make and the taste is unbelievable! Since I used strawberries as the fruit I did not need to add any sweetener to the jam, making the sweetness entirely from the fruit. Win-Win in my book! 🙂 I hope to get better with pictures as I blog more. I hope you try this amazing simple recipe!

IMG_3753

1 cup frozen strawberries
