My Savior

So this post is not any new recipe...I just simply want to express my gratitude for My Saviors tender mercy in my life. I know He lives and loves us and I know this knowledge of the restored Gospel that I have been blessed to have, IS the greatest gift I have been given. I pray I can give my life, everything that I am or will be to Him. He is the greatest gift to us all. I wish you all have a beautiful peace filled Christmas.

Yeah for good Toothpaste...Go Oils!

On Guard Natural Whitening Toothpaste

dōTERRA's fluoride-free toothpaste provides the protective benefits of therapeutic-grade On Guard® essential oils against germs and other harmful pathogens, while also reducing plaque, and whitening teeth with gentle polishing agents. On Guard's unique cinnamon-mint flavor, with xylitol, also leaves your breath (and your toothbrush), fresh and clean.

Breakfast or Anytime

We have a shake around 3-4 times a week for breakfast, or lunch or dinner:)This is one of my Moms new version:

serves 2
by Shelley Redford Young

This shake is one I created for the hot summer months but I drink it all year long because it's MY FAVORITE SHAKE!!!
I wanted a lighter, slushier shake with intense lime flavor like the lime-freeze slushes I used to have as a kid.
I took out all the powders, cut down on the avocado, went with raw, green ingredients and added more ice for more of a slush-shake
I always use raw green stevia for the sweetner

1 english cucumber
1/2 avocado
1-2 hand fulls baby spinach
3-4 peeled limes (adjust to desired amount)
8-12 ice cubes
raw green stevia to taste

Blend on high until smooth and drink immediately!

We pour out half to fill up mine and Matthews shake, and then blend in some frozen berries, coconut almond milk and some more stevia to sweeten it a bit more for the kidlets.
