Potato Salad has always been one of my favorite side dishes. Not just a summertime favorite but all year. I love potatoes of any kind but they are a bit carby so whenever I am trying to lose weight, potatoes are not such a great idea. As I get older, low carb/keto is a means to manage pain and inflammation.

I really enjoy cauliflower in stir fry but when I tried it as a replacement for potatoes I wasn’t all that impressed. It had the cauliflower taste which was kind of disappointing. Well, all that changed when I got a great tip from George Stella. He said to cook the cauliflower in water instead of steaming to get a more potato like flavor. I tried that and all I can say is WOW! That made a world of difference.

Anyway, Here’s my recipe. It’s spicy. If you prefer the not so spicy, leave the hot peppers out. 😉

Spicy Vitality Mock Potato Salad

1 large head cauliflower, cleaned
5 hard-boiled large eggs, chopped
2 stalks celery, finely diced
1/3 cup onion, finely diced
1/4 cup pickled jalapenos, chopped
1/4 cup red peppers, chopped
3/4 cup mayonnaise
1 TBS yellow mustard
1 tsp salt teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
2 drops Dill Vitality Essential Oil

Garnish with cilantro or parsley.

Boil a large pot of water over high heat. Chop cauliflower into small pieces.
Cook the cauliflower pieces in the boiling water for about 5 minutes, until tender.
Drain cauliflower and rinse with cold water to stop the cooking process. Let the cauliflower sit in the strainer a bit to drain and dry.

Place the cauliflower in a bowl with all of the remaining ingredients. Mix. Place in the refrigerator for a couple hours before serving. I like making it the day before. The flavors meld nicely.

Eucalyptus oil comes from trees, usually from Australia but Young Living also growing Eucalyptus in Ecuador. Young Living carries three types of Eucalyptus: Eucalyptus Blue, Eucalyptus globulus and Eucalyptus radiata.

The scent of Eucalyptus is familiar to anyone that has consumed cough drops. Most Eucalyptus species support healthy respiratory system. You can inhale the eucalyptus oil and apply it to the chest. You will likely want to dilute with a carrier oil. Sometimes I layer the oils, putting a couple drops of the oil on location, then layer the carrier oil
over it as a dilution method. This is useful when using oils that “heat up” a bit in sensitive skin areas on the body.

You can also put some boiling water in a bowl, then add a couple drops Eucalyptus oil to the water. Put a towel over your head to create a tent, then lower your head over the water and inhale the vapors.

Following is a little information on the Eucalyptus oils and what they can do.

Eucalyptus Blue: This oil has a fresh, invigorating aroma that supports normal breathing and soothes tense muscles when applied topically. This essential oil is grown and harvested at the Young Living Farm in Ecuador and is an important ingredient in the Breathe Again Roll On.

Some of the Eucalyptus Blue features include:

High levels of the powerful constituent eucalyptol 56.2% (also known as 1.8-cineol) and eugenol.
High in limonene 6% – normally no limonene in eucalyptus

Eucalyptus Blue is a key ingredient in the new Breathe Again Roll-On

Supports respiratory function when diffused.

Eucalyptus Blue also helps soothe muscle tension when applied topically, and relaxes the body after exercise.

How to use: Topical: Dilute one drop with one drop of V-6 or olive oil. Then apply to desired area as needed. Aromatic: Diffuse up to 30 minutes three times daily.

Rosemary and eucalyptus oils can be used in a saline solution for a very effective nasal irrigation.
10 drops rosemary
6 drops Eucalyptus Blue
8 tbs very fine salt.
The essential oils are mixed thoroughly in the fine salt and kept in a container. For each nasal irrigation session, use
1 teaspoon of this salt mixture dissolved into 1 1/2 cups distilled water. This oils/salt/water solution is then placed in the tank of an oral irrigator to irrigate the nasal cavities, which is done while bending over a sink.

Eucalyptus globulus: Eucalyptol (1.8 cineol) occurs in high concentrations in Eucalyptus globulus and other eucalyptus
species. It is responsible for the oil’s respiratory supporting effects.

How to use: Eucalyptus globulus is best applied topically or on the reflex points of the feet.

Eucalyptus globulus 15ml. Product # 3539

Eucalyptus radiata: Is cooling, refreshing, and energizing. Lighter in smell than Eucalyptus globulus, it has many of
the same supportive properties. Because it is relatively gentle and nonirritating, it is the preferred choice for
children. This variety is one of the most versatile of the eucalyptus oils and is suitable for topical use, diffusing,
and even direct inhalation. It has long been an ingredient in some of Young Living’s most popular blends.

A few examples:
Breathe Again Roll On

These oils should be in your arsenal for supporting your healthy immune system.

A drop or two of oil can also be sprinkled on a handkerchief or tissue and inhaled directly as needed.

DIY Essential Oil Infused Tissues
Remove tissues from their box. Pour 2-3 drops of Eucalyptus radiata onto a cotton ball, and seal the cotton ball with your tissues in an airtight container for 24 hours. Remove tissues from airtight container and replace tissues in box.
Repeat as needed to refresh scent.

Breathe Again Roll-On is a blend of four different types of eucalyptus essential oils (Eucalyptus Staigeriana, Eucalyptus Globulus, Eucalyptus Radiata, and Eucalyptus Blue) as well as Peppermint, Copaiba, Myrtle, Blue Cypress, Bay Laurel, Rose hip seed oil, and fractionated coconut oil.
The Fractionated virgin coconut oil in Breathe Again allows the blend to be gently applied to areas of the body. This roll-on is already diluted, making it perfect for on the go!

Breathe Again is high in the naturally occurring chemical constituents eucalyptol and menthol, beta-caryophyllene, and alpha pinene. Breathe Again Roll-On has a refreshing and rejuvenating aroma and is the perfect companion during the winter months! I love to apply it right on my chest, neck and back right before a steamy shower. I also sometimes even roll a little bit right under my nose when I need a little jump-start in the morning.

Young Living sources oils from three types of suppliers:

    1. Corporate Farms – owned, managed and run by Young Living
    2. Partner Farms
    3. Seed To Seal Certified Suppliers

The same level of quality is expected regardless of where we get our oils. Whether they come from our farms, our partner farms or one of our Seed To Seal Certified Supplier, the bar is always the same. 100% Seed to Seal quality.

Seed To Seal Certified Suppliers

Every single supplier has to must meet Young Living’s standards. We do stringent quality testing. We make sure all of the documentation is there. This testing is done every single time we get a batch of oil from a supplier. We are very serious about what we expect from our suppliers. Each supplier must go through Seed To Seal training and certification. They cannot supply to us unless they go through this process.

Then once through the training process they must sign a declaration that they WILL comply with Seed To Seal. It’s a contract and they are held accountable. They are also required to understand strict compliance rules and must comply with their country’s rules but also laws within the US.

Enhanced visits
Many supplier distilleries are shocked when YL comes to visit. They say none of the other companies they have supplied have ever come to see how we do things. The only way you can check all of that is if someone is there. So we go there to make sure they are following the rules.

When we visit a supplier, we want to know some things that contribute to the quality of the oil. Where do their seeds come from? In the example of ylang ylang trees, where did they get those trees 15 or 20 years ago when they were first planted?
As you replant, where did that come from? We watch the distillation process. We also ask to see record keeping. How do they
keep track of their distillation. How do they keep track of inventory. How they keep track of the people who work for them. How are they being paid? Business licenses, proof of taxes being paid. We don’t just want to be sure the oils are being produced the right way, we want to make sure they are running their company the right way.

Next Level is Partner Farms

Once a supplier qualifies to this level, Young Living then provides significant capital investment in the farm. We rebuild the distillery. Resources and go there for the long term to teach them each step of the process and give them even more skills than they had to date. More tools and resources. Longer term contracts. Exclusive relationships with them. They only sell to Young Living and not to a competitor.

New Partner Farm in Quintis Farm in Perth, Australia – Sacred Sandalwood

Newest Partner Farm – Balkan Botanical Farm in Bulgaria
This farm will be producing Roman Chamomile and Valerian. We have not had these oils in over 2 years. Over the years many samples of these oils have been submitted to Young Living but they did not meet Seed to Seal quality standards so they were rejected. We are not willing to compromise our quality standards. We would rather not have the oil, than sell a lower quality product.


sides the corporate owned farms, there are currently 7 Partner Farms. This number is growing as we turn Certified Suppliers into Partner Farms.

Spicy taco salads are among my favorite meals. I usually add lots of cilantro and hot peppers to any salad. I love cilantro and lime together. I am always experimenting with cilantro combinations for sauces, soups and salads. I recently made this Cilantro Lime Sauce made with added Lime Vitality Essential Oil. This was really tasty. I made a large batch of the sauce and had it on several salads over the week. It’s a new favorite.

The pulled pork recipe makes 8 4oz servings. It’s great for a family gathering or putting half in the freezer for quick meals when you have busy times.

Spicy Pulled Pork Salad With Cilantro Lime Sauce Sauce

Ingredients for Cilantro Lime Sauce

¼ cup oil
¼ cup water
½ cup chopped green onions
½ cup cilantro leaves
2-3 cloves garlic
½ tsp salt
5 drops Lime Vitality Essential Oil
½ cup sour cream

Ingredients for Spicy Pulled Pork Salad

4 lbs pork shoulder
1 tbsp salt
1 tsp pepper
2 Tbs. Chili Powder
2 Tbs. Cumin
½ tsp. Cayenne Pepper
1 medium onion, chopped
3 garlic cloves, chopped
1 cup chicken broth

2–3 cups shredded lettuce & spinach
1–2 small bell peppers, sliced
2 tomatoes, diced

Remove twine from the pork shoulder. Score the meat, then sprinkle seasonings over the pork shoulder and rub them in. Put the pork in your crock pot along with chopped onion and garlic. Pour in the chicken broth. Cover and let cook on low for 8-10 hours.

After the pork shoulder is cooked, transfer it to a large bowl and shred with two forks. Drain the liquid out of the crock pot but save the onion and garlic. Add the onions and garlic to the pulled pork and mix to combine. Taste test at this point and salt if necessary.

Directions for Cilantro Lime Sauce:
Pulse all the sauce ingredients except the sour cream in a food processor. When mostly smooth, add the sour cream and pulse until combined. Taste and adjust as needed. Set aside.

Serve pulled pork on a bed of lettuce and spinach, sliced peppers and chopped tomatoes.
Top with Cilantro Lime sauce until it the vegetables are coated to your liking.

The Cilantro Lime Sauce works well with chicken or beef as well.
