smoothieSmoothies are a great way to get more veggies into your diet. Let’s face it. In this fast paced lifestyle, most of us don’t get enough vegetables in our diet. Smoothies can help. especially if you have family members who don’t love their vegetables. Add fruit and it’s a flavorful way to enjoy more vegetables. Try some of these smoothie recipes.


Ginger Protein Smoothie


2 handfuls of spinach or kale
5 stalks of raw asparagus
ginger root – I like my smoothie very strong in ginger so I add a piece about 3 inches long.
1/2 banana
1 cup whatever fruit I have on hand
2 scoops Young Living Pure Protein Complete
1 tbsp flax seeds
1-4 ounces NingXia Red
1 cup water
4 drops tangerine or other essential oil – Slique Essence is AWESOME in smoothies!


Directions: Combine ingredients in blender or NutriBullet. Fill liquid to the line. Blend until you reach the desired consistency. I like to freeze peeled bananas so they are like banana ice cubes. I cut them in half and put them in ziploc bags.


Blueberry Almond Smoothie
2 handfuls spinach or kale
1 cup blueberries
1/2 banana
2 scoops Young Living Pure Protein Complete
10 almonds
optional: ginger root – I LOVE ginger root in almost all smoothies. I can’t get enough of it! 🙂


Directions: Combine ingredients in blender or NutriBullet. Fill liquid to the line. Blend until you reach the desired consistency.


NingXia Peach Smoothie


1/2 c. frozen peaches
1/2 c. frozen strawberries or blueberries
2 scoops Young Living Pure Protein Complete
4 ounces NingXia Red
Water (whatever amount to the line on your NutriBullet cup)
4 drops Orange or Tangerine essential oil


Place ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth. In NutriBullet, fill liquid to the line. Frozen fruit gives the smoothie a cold, thick consistency but can be replaced with fresh fruit. Makes one serving.


Here are two smoothie recipes I found on Young Living’s Product Blog:

We have all the felt the effects of sleep deprivation: that zombie-like feeling that consumes us the moment we roll out of bed. Our eyes are heavy, we can’t think straight, everything in a blur. Like mechanical robots, we go about our day not fully comprehending what is going on around us.


The negative effects of sleep deprivation are quickly becoming an alarming issue. According to a recent poll, 58 percent of adults in the US experience symptoms of insomnia several nights a week.


Sleep-deprived individuals find it hard to concentrate or feel productive during the day. Perhaps worst of all, more and more are driving drowsy. In fact, the US National Highway Traffic Safety Administration estimates that 100,000 of reported crashes occur as a result of drowsiness.


Getting a good night’s sleep is important for mental health and normal functioning, but it’s pertinent for maintaining a healthy lifestyle. Single essential oils such as valerian, spikenard, and lavender are known for their ability to relax, calm, and emotionally ground a person. RutaVaLa, Peace & Calming and Gentle Baby are soothing essential oil blends that have similar effects. These oils can be diffused, inhaled, massaged into the feet prior to retiring to help ease tension and settle the mind.


DURING THE DAY:

  • Consume less or no caffeine, particularly late in the day.
  • Avoid alcohol and nicotine, especially close to bedtime.
  • Exercise, but not within three hours of going to bed.
  • Avoid naps, especially in the late afternoon or evening.
  • Establish a regular sleep schedule; don’t try to make up for lost sleep.

BEFORE BEDTIME:

  • Take a warm bath using a few drops of lavender in the water to soothe away stress and tension before retiring at night.
  • Rub a drop of essential oil such as lavender on your palm and smooth over pillow to aid with sleep.
  • Apply Peace & Calming or another soothing oil to the feet before bedtime to promote relaxation.


Young Living’s SleepEssence contains four relaxing essential oils in a softgel vegetarian capsule for easy ingestion. Combining lavender, vetiver, valerian, and Ruta graveolens essential oils with the hormone melatonin.
