Cooking with Young Living

Posted on April 8th, 2013 | 3 comments

The simple things in life are what make it worth living. Dinnertime is one of those simple things. It is a time to gather around a dinner table with loved ones to enjoy a delicious, home-cooked meal that was prepared with the sole purpose of pleasing those you care about. Add to that the element of 100% pure, therapeutic-grade essential oils, and you have now enhanced dinnertime with nutrients the way Young Living and nature intended.

That being said, it is time to share another mouth-watering dinner suggestion: This month’s recipe comes from health coach and Young Living distributor­ Tara Rayburn.
