Cooking with Oils- Deconstructed stuffed pepper with rice

Have you ever been without ideas about what to cook for dinner?

That was my predicament the other night. I was looking at recipes and decided that I wanted to make lemongrass rice with a deconstructed stuffed pepper mix.


For the main dish,

  • I browned a pound of ground turkey with an onion.
  • Added salt, pepper, & garlic.
  • Then mixed in a can of diced tomatoes, chili seasoning, 2 drops each of vitality oils cumin, parsley, and black pepper.
  • Let simmer for 15-20 minutes

For the lemongrass rice:

  • I did not have any lemongrass, so I decided to use my vitality essential oil. I put two drops in a little bit of olive oil and drizzled that over the rice in the rice cooker.
  • Then I added my water, dash of sea salt, and cooked it.

Plated it and garnished with some Homemade pickled Peppers and carrots,

Bon appétit

It turned out so good! It was very fragrant.

I love experimenting and finding more and more uses for my vitality oils!

Morning Routine: Ningxia Red

Good morning ☀️

I’m participating in a challenge to elevate my mind and body for my overall wellness.

I have gotten out of the habit of doing some of the things that keep me healthy.

So I’m rebooting my morning routine by drinking my Ningxia Red drink. I added ginger kombucha, 3 drops lime vitality, and 2 drops Red Shot.

NingXia Red Benefits- Just 1-2 ounces of this power juice a day power packed with nutrients keep your body running strong and help you flush out those toxins!
.
Red Shot Benefits- Cassia is great for the immune system and cardiovascular system, the citrus oils are all vitality oils that are immune system support powerhouses , and Spearmint Vitality is great for the digestive system and weight management.
.
Lime Essential oil Benefits- It is 100 % Bioflavonoid, supports the immune system, stimulates the detox pathways , and helps with the absorption of Vitamin C.

What is your morning routine?

Is it morning again?

I am not a morning person.

My bed feels so warm and cozy in the morning and once my feet hit the floor, I am off and running.

I sometimes apply different blends to my wrists and neck to uplift my mood too. I need all the help I can get!

When I get in the car, I like to get my diffuser going with some bright yummy smelling oils to help wake me up on the way to work. I feel energized and ready to face the day.

I love it because just a few drops of oil in the diffuser is efficient AND cost effective! Plus I do not have to worry about breathing in harmful chemical smells.

Here are some suggestions for diffusing in the morning for energy:

  • Lemon + Peppermint
  • Stress Away (blend) + Lime
  • Citrus Fresh (blend) + Lavender
  • Motivation (blend)

*In the car, I use one drop of each oil/oil blend so that it is not overpowering

Here are some suggestions for what I put on my wrists  & neck:
