12 Days of Christmas: Day Twelve- Slique CitraSlim Caps

Day Twelve: Slique CitraSlim Caps

On the 12th day of Christmas, my true love gave to me...Slique CitraSlim Caps to start off with a slimmer me in January!

Slique CitraSlim is formulated with naturally derived ingredients to promote healthy weight management when combined with a balanced diet and regular exercise. It also includes a proprietary citrus extract blend, which some studies suggest may help support the body in burning excess fat when used in conjunction with a healthy weight-management plan. This polyphenolic mixture of flavonoids offers powerful antioxidants that are touted for their health benefits. This blend may also support the release of free fatty acids, which help break down fat.

Ummm yes please!!!

12 Days of Christmas: Day Eleven- Bedtime Oils

Day Eleven: Bedtime Oils

On the 11th day of Christmas, my true love gave to me...some bedtime oils to keep us feeling nice and cozy.

White Angelica contains pure Melissa and Bergamot essential oils, promotes feelings of protection and security when diffused, and can be used to guard against negative energy.

Cedarwood has a warm, woodsy aroma that creates a comforting, uplifting experience. Use Cedarwood oil to add its invigorating scent to your life through aromatic and topical uses. You can also create a calming yet powerful environment when you diffuse this oil or add it to massage oil blends.

We put 2 drops of each of these oils in our diffusers at nighttime. We've done the same oils for almost 2 years now and have been thrilled with them.

12 Days of Christmas: Day Six- Einkorn Granola

Day Six: Einkorn Granola

On the 6th day of Christmas, my true love gave to me...yummy Einkorn Granola, the only kind that doesn't hurt my belly.

All too often, cereals and on-the-go snacks are filled with refined sugars, high-fructose corn syrup, artificial colors, and artificial flavors. Instead of including these overly processed ingredients, Einkorn Granola is sweetened by the combination of wolfberries, cranberries, cacao nibs, and coconut sugar. These sweet hints are balanced by hearty sunflower seeds, almonds, walnuts, and pecans, with just the right amount of sea salt. It is delicious!

How do you NingXia?

NingXia Red Challenge!

From a friend of mine...
"How do you drink your NingXia? We have a different color shot glass assigned to each person in our house. That way we never have to say, "who didn't drink their NingXia?!"

We love using our mason jar shot glasses or we just put it in our boys' regular cups, especially for Bishop since we are adding the MindWise to his.

Shot glass, wine glass ;) or cup?

One ounce is equal to....

Ningxia Red Challenge!

Three more reasons Ningxia Red should be a part of your daily wellness.

1) It is a MACRO nutrient which means it delivers a ton of nutrients in a 1 ounce serving because it is a whole food supplement. Check out the graphic below. 50-60 years ago ONE Orange was packed with the nutrients to provide us with enough necessary vitamin A. Today, due to GMO’s, changes in soil, changes in farming practices, etc. you would have to eat EIGHT Oranges to = the amount of Vitamin A compared to an Orange 50 years ago. You would have to eat 5 oranges to = the amount of Iron. Foods today are 20-60% lower in nutrients which are vital to our health. You simply cannot consume the amount nutrients from food in a day to equal the nutrients that 1 oz of Ningxia Red can provide your body.

2) It's a Liquid Supplement - liquid form is absorbed faster because our bodies don't have to break it down.

3) Essential Oils - Ningxia Red contains Orange, Yuzu, Lemon and Tangerine oil. These help support blood sugar, digestion and our immune systems.

Who's loving their NingXia?

Calling all NingXia Red Challengers!

WHY your body needs NIngxia Red...

This explanation was my biggest “aha” moment as to why my family needed to start drinking Ningxia Red daily. Antioxidants! Antioxidants are nutrients, such as vitamins, minerals, and enzymes, that help fight off the damaging effects of free radicals.

Let’s compare our bodies to a car for a quick moment. A car produces exhaust – a normal bi-product of a functioning car. If you were to put a cap on the car’s tailpipe, the car would no longer be healthy. The engine would choke and die.

Where am I going with this?!?!? Now think about your body. Your body creates Free Radicals (the car exhaust of the body). When we walk, talk, or breathe, our body is creating free radicals. Antioxidants are the only way to get the Free Radicals out of our body (our body CANNOT produce antioxidants) in order to support normal body function and to remain above the wellness line. If we do not provide our body with antioxidants, it is similar to capping the tailpipe on a normal functioning car.

Check out the graphics below to show why adding 1-2 oz. of Ningxia Red can make drastic improvements on the number of antioxidants you provide your body. You CANNOT eat enough high antioxidant food in a day to provide your body the number of antioxidants that Ningxia Red can provide. So drink your NingXia!!!

Chemical-Free is the Way to Be

Creating a chemical free home wasn’t completely on my radar a few years ago. I mean I made some decent choices (so I thought), but then there was the whole cleaning with bleach thing which I wouldn’t even have bat an eye at. Yikes! 

Enter Thieves EVERYTHING! When you know better, you do better, right? We started thinking about how we could switch out some of the so called "natural" store bought brands of things like laundry detergent, hand soap, hand sanitizer, facial care products, toothpaste, floss, mouthwash, body wash, body lotion, supplements and so many other products.

One of our absolute favorite switches was chucking every single household cleaner we used and purchasing only the Thieves Household Cleaner instead. It cleans every single surface in our home, even windows without streaking. It's truly amazing AND affordable. We really love the Laundry soap too. I add a drop of Purification to it right into the washer and our clothes smell so good and aren't filled with chemicals. Oh and the hand purifier... Have you tried it yet? It's so silky. Much different than what I'd tried in the past. I could go on, but you get the idea.

So, what is the first product you did the good ole Ditch and Switch with to help create a Chemical-Free Home?

"Real" Brothers

5 days after meeting for the first time

These two. People often ask if they’re brothers. No, “REAL” brothers! Well, there’s nothing more real if you ask me. Their bond is so strong. It started on day one too. Family is made by choosing to love, by commitment and fierce determination to stick together. There’s nothing easy about the life we live, but our family is as REAL as they get. They are REAL brothers!

Have you met my friend Einkorn?

Yummy granola that won't hurt my belly!? Uh, yes please. Young Living isn't just oils. As a company, they care about what we put in our bodies in general. This Einkorn Granola that was launched at Convention is delish!!! It is made with Einkorn wheat, the oldest grain there is. YL grows it the way God intended. I generally have belly issues with wheat, but not with Einkorn. What a yummy breakfast. Only 6 grams of natural sugar in the granola too. I downed my daily dose of NingXia and I'm ready for the day!
