Snow Cream

In North Texas we usually don’t get much snow.  We usually get ice which is no fun!  Today we got tons of good, powder snow.

We decide to try and make Snow Ice Cream.  We set a large bowl out on the patio table and let snow accumulate.  After the bowl was full, we brought it in.  We made several different flavors.

  • About 1/2 bag chocolate chips (totally your preference on how much you like)

Instructions:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Spray loaf pans with non-cook spray and spoon it into pans.

Bake for 40 minutes.  You should be able to insert a knife into the middle of the loaf and the knife should come out clean.

Why I choose to use Young Living Einkorn Mix…

Ingredients: Whole grain einkorn flour (Triticum monococcum), Brown rice flour, Amaranth flour, Tapioca flour, Sorghum flour (Sorghum bicolor), Dhokla flour (Indian flour made from chickpeas)

Flours now days are so processed and altered that they are no longer good for us.  Young Living is growing the very best Einkorn Wheat and I have loved baking with this mix.

Good Morning Sunshine!

In November I bought myself some Young Living products that I had not tried with my Essential Rewards points.  One of them was the Morning Start Bath & Shower Gel.  It gets your day started right with an invigorating blend of the essential oils added to naturally cleansing and moisturizing botanicals.  It has Lemongrass, Rosemary, Juniper, and Peppermint oil in it.  It is non-toxic and free from chemicals & synthetic preservatives.  I need all the help I can get in the mornings!

Warning: Men go ahead and scroll down to the next post.

Women, listen up!

My cycle was insane for YEARS!!!!!!  It was long and very heavy.  I would have cramps so bad that I would spend the first 2 days in bed with what used to be my best friend the heating pad.  I haven’t needed a heating pad since I met this girl.  She seriously has changed my life.

Progessence™ Plus serum is a pure, harmonizing serum that is designed specifically for women. Along with wild yam and vitamin E, Progessence Plus is formulated with Frankincense, Bergamot, and Peppermint essential oils for optimal results.

Directions: Apply 2–4 drops 2 times daily on neck area. For added effect, apply 1–2 drops along forearms 2 times daily.

Thyme to get Slique

**These are my individual results and my testimonies.  Everyone is different and may have different results depending on several different factors such as diet, exercise, health, etc… There is No Magic Pill or formula that will work for everyone.  I think it is very important to know your body.  Do research on any product you consider using.

I am only sharing because when I wanted to start using these products I wanted to read personal testimonies, so hopefully this will be helpful information for someone, if not it is good accountability for me to put it out on the internet so I will strive to meet my goals.

I have been making several changes over the last 2 years for the health of my family and decided that on January 1st it was time to work really hard at shedding my extra weight.  Due to more natural changes that I have been slowly making this decision was much easier, but still a challenge.

I decided that I was going to cut out Sugar and Gluten as much as possible.  I have been eating lean meats, fruits and vegetables, drinking tons of water with Lemon oil or Slique oil.

Citrus Water Slique Essence

Why I chose Young Living to help me attain my weight management goals…

Today’s lifestyles don’t always create optimal conditions for physical wellness or weight management.  Poor diet, lack of exercise and environmental toxins can leave us unbalanced and low on energy.  Every product that Young Living creates supports your whole body.  They provide targeted solutions to restore balance.  Not only are these products for weight management but so much more.  Even if you don’t need to loose weight these products are still great for your health.  If you do want to loose weight, you will not be jeopardizing your health while doing it.  I trust Young Living!  I have done my research and they have nothing to hide.

What a typical day looks like for me…

Breakfast: NingXia Red (1 oz.), water with lemon, Super C, Super B, Master Formula Hers and a healthy breakfast or a Balance Complete meal replacement.

Lunch:  Water, healthy lunch or Balance Complete meal replacement (if I didn’t have it for breakfast), Essentialzymes-4

Snack: nuts, noosa yogurt or a slique bar

45 minutes before dinner I take 1 pack of Slique Slim Caps

Dinner: Water, Healthy dinner (meat, fruits and veggies), Essentialzymes-4

If I get a little hungry before bed I drink Slique Tea or more NingXia Red (1 oz.)

Like I said this is not a formula.  Each day looks different.  I don’t think I would be successful on a program that looked the same each day.  I like variety.

I only weigh on Sundays.  If you weigh everyday you will see the up and down which might help you but I decided I just wanted to see the results after each week.

Results as of 1/18/15…

I feel great!  I have more energy.  I am more productive.  I have lost 9 lbs!!

I will post more along the journey.  I would love to hear from you if you have ever tried any of the Slique products!  I would also love to hear any tips that work for you.

If you want to order, go to beta.youngliving.com and my # is 1483642.  I would love to answer any questions you have.

Attention: Pilots

I went to Starbucks yesterday to sit and fill out some paperwork before picking my kids up from school.  There was only 1 table available in the whole place so I take my seat and start filling out the papers.  (squirrel)  I over hear the 2 men sitting next to me talk about how they are pilots and that one has Vertigo (Cedarwood) and the other struggles with allergies (LLPC) and getting stuffy.  They both talk about how they are not supposed to fly when they aren’t feeling well or when they are on medicine.  There was a little wall between us or I would have told them all about Young Living Essential Oils.  (I probably wouldn’t have, but like to think I would have)

It did inspire me to make this…

Attention: All Pilots

If you are a Pilot or know a Pilot, please share.  Young Living offers a natural alternative!  No more missing flights!!
