The old adage “you are what you eat” is a phrase coined by Anthelme Brillat-Savarin in 1826. “Tell me what you eat and I will tell you what you are.” As a young mother I became very concerned about the diet my kids were eating and started exploring vitamins, supplements, and the very food I was purchasing from the store. Where did it come from? When had it been picked, processed, treated etc. I became a early health nut. My kids benefitted from my concern and we all spent very little time at the doctor’s offices. Fast forward a few years; I discovered doTERRA Essential Oils. This seemed to be the final piece of my puzzle of staying healthy and keeping a strong immune system.

Fall is a marvelous time to examine your family’s eating habits and incorporate some doTERRA products. Are you making quick breakfasts for those teens running out of the door? Offer a Trim Shake mixed with Terragreens to make a nutritious breakfast. Use 2 or 3 scoops of the powder in 8 oz of the beverage of their choice. I love to add frozen blueberries or strawberries to make a smoothie out of it! A Trim Shake is also an ideal after school snack for those little ones coming home from school and clamoring for something sweet! Offer one with some cut up veggies to keep those little hands busy!
Are they packing a lunch box? Slice some apples, soak in half cup water with 1 drop or 2 of On Guard Protective Blend. Let the apples soak while you are packing the rest of the lunch, then put the slices in a container for a great tasting snack. Send carrots, pea pods, celery along with that lunch as well as a good protein. A sachet of PB Assist Jr is a great addition to that lunch bag. It tastes like “Pixie Sticks” and packs a punch of 5 Billion active probiotics from 6 strains of live beneficial bacteria. It doesn’t need to mix with liquid!
