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!

My favorite comfort food is chicken soup. I do not consider myself to be a good cook BUT I love making chicken soup from scratch and it is super delicious.

I think it’s easy, especially because I don’t need to measure most of the ingredients. I add based on feel.

How many carrots do I feel like adding today?

Breakfast ideas: Overnight Oats

Who else likes overnight oats? They’re GREAT!!!

I am a firm believer that breakfast is not to be missed. I usually eat a couple of eggs 🍳 because it’s quick and easy but I wanted something different.


Different requires prep 😂.

    Handsoap – DIY or Nah?

    You know how much I love sweet smelling soap!

    As I have mentioned before, the word “fragrance” can hide any combination of 3000+ Synthetic chemicals (some more toxic than others).

    But who wants a life of unscented soap?

    Not me. That’s why I love this fresh floral blend of oils.

    I start with an 2 oz unscented Castile soap and add 9 drops of each essential oils. Then fill the 8oz bottle to top with water. Voila!

    BUT if you don’t want go the DIY route…

    Yeah, Young Living has you covered and you can use Thieves hand soap. I bought the refill because I already have plenty of foaming pump bottles.
