Magnificent Mango Kale Smoothie

By Jodee Weiland

Summer time is the best time of the year to enjoy a nice cold smoothie! My new smoothie is both healthy and delicious. If you drink all fourteen ounces on your own, you will find it quite filling as well. Nonetheless, you can also choose to share this awesome smoothie with someone else. Either way, my Magnificent Mango Kale Smoothie will help you maintain your health goals while adding a great tasting smoothie to your day!

Putting together a healthy smoothie isn’t rocket science, but you should have a way of tracking the calories and the nutritional elements of your recipe, so you will find the best option for meeting your individual dietary goals. I use the food diary in the app, MyFitnessPal, to do this for myself.

As I add on each ingredient to my food diary, it tells me the calories and more. For example, my Magnificent Mango Kale Smoothie is 416 calories for all fourteen ounces or 208 calories for half the recipe when made with the blue agave, which adds 60 calories to the recipe. Various programs have features that will count the calories and more, so if this interests you, look for the one that is best for you. In the mean time, check out the awesome recipe for my Magnificent Mango Kale Smoothie!

As I said earlier, my Magnificent Mango Kale Smoothie is both delicious and healthy. It has all the nutrients of kale and mango both, plus those found in almond milk and pumpkin seeds. Kale, often referred to as a super food with staying power has protein, fiber, vitamins A, C, and K, and so much more. Mango is rich in dietary fiber, vitamins, minerals, and more, as well as being a good source of potassium. Pumpkin seeds are packed with fiber, vitamins, minerals, and numerous health promoting antioxidants. All in all, the health benefits of my Magnificent Mango Kale Smoothie make this one awesome smoothie to use as a meal or just enjoy before or after a workout. Give it a try, and enjoy!

I Love Young Living Essential Oils!

By Jodee Weiland

That’s right! I love Young Living Essential Oils! I love them for so many different reasons, but the reason I began using them was because for me, they helped support my ability to breathe easier and to relax.

 http://learnfromyesterday.com/2016/05/01/i-love-young-living-essential-oils/

Over the past year, I have been looking at properties from coast to coast in warmer and dryer climates because I have asthma. Unfortunately, molds and other environmental issues often reek havoc on my system causing asthma attacks. This is no fun, and over the last few years, living in the Chicago suburbs has made it worse for me. Young Living Essential Oils help me to relax and that in turn, helps me breathe easier. That’s why I Love Young Living Essential Oils!

 http://learnfromyesterday.com/2016/05/01/i-love-young-living-essential-oils/

Chicago is listed as one of most challenging places for people with asthma to live by the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America. In the last few years with warmer winters and wetter summers, there has been a change in the weather patterns here in the Midwest that are making life here more difficult for people like myself. The levels of mold and other environmental allergens are higher in the recent years. In years gone by, a deep freeze in winter or very hot summers kept mold levels down. That meant that, for the most part, only fall and spring were difficult for me. But with global warming, I’m having difficulty year round now, and that’s not good.

While visiting my daughter on New Year’s Day, she had a diffuser running with Young Living Essential Oils. After a short while, I noticed that although my asthma had been acting up, I felt more relaxed and found my breathing became more relaxed as well. I asked what she was using in the diffuser. That’s when she told me about Young Living Essential Oils and the oil blend called RC Essential Oil in her diffuser at that time. I loved it. I felt the best I had felt in a long while.

We talked longer, and we talked about the idea of me becoming an independent distributor like her, so I could  purchase oils at wholesale rather than retail cost. Being an independent distributor does not mean you have to sell Young Living products. But should you decide to share these products as an independent distributor, the option is yours. After a bit of research on essential oils, I decided to do just that and ordered the Premium Starter Kit that comes with a diffuser, ten plus oils, and so much more.

What I liked about Young Living Essential Oils was the purity of the product. For more than twenty years from seed to seal, Young Living has set the standard for the quality of their oils in both purity and potency. Since becoming a part of this organization, I have found more oils I love and use, like Lavender Essential Oil. When I want to relax, I diffuse Lavender and soon feel a peacefulness. With each new oil or product I try, I become more and more of a fan of Young Living Essential Oils.

Do I make money as an independent distributor? Yes, but making money wasn’t my initial reason for doing this. I chose to do this because I love the essential oils and the products from Young Living that I have used so far. I have a list of those I will be purchasing on the Essential Rewards program from Young Living in the months to come. This program gives me reward points on my purchases that I can use later to receive some oils or products free. How great is that? So yes, I Love Young Living Essential Oils, so much so I wanted to tell all of you about them and share this wonderful experience with you! Try them and see for yourself…enjoy!

NOTE:  If you’re interested in purchasing any oils or products, please go to my Young Living website listed below yo learn more about them. You can also sign up to become an independent distributor on my website as well. I would love to be able to share this experience with you!
