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!

Cooking with Oils- Chicken Soup

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 😂.


  • The great thing about Overnight Oats is that it’s easy. Plus oatmeal is nutritious, full of fiber, and very filling. Healthy and delicious means it’s a win-win all the way around!

    • 1/2 cup old fashioned oats
      3/4 cup almond milk mixed with essential oils (drops listed below)

      1/4 cup blueberries
      1 handful almonds, roughly chopped

    Smoothie Time is delicious

    I have been all about smoothies the last few weeks !!!

    The wonderful thing about summer is that everything is blooming and there are so many fresh fruit and vegetables available. I am happy with all of the different options.

    I have heard that you should eat a variety of foods like have colors like the rainbow and I totally agree!

    When I make a smoothie, I like to mix it up. Sometimes I have all fruit, but other times I want a little bit of fruit with some vegetables thrown in. I also like to experiment with different spices to provide layers of flavor.

    Blueberries and strawberries are two of my favorite fruits and are usually the base for my smoothies. I use these as my starting point and then build the smoothie flavor profile.

    Below are two recipes from recent smoothies I made.

    Blueberry kale ginger
    1 c frozen blueberries
    1 c fresh kale
    1/2 c almond milk
    Ice
    1 drop Young Living Vitality Ginger essential oil

    Strawberry Cardamom
    1 c fresh strawberries
    1 c almond milk
    1 scoop Young Living vanilla spice protein powder
    Ice
    1 drop Young Living Vitality Cardamom essential oil

    Instructions are the same for each:
    Blend all ingredients except the essential oil for 60-75 seconds. Stir in essential oil. Serve in chilled glass.
