We have a cooking challenge going on on the Rising Stars Team FaceBook page. If you aren't following the page, that's okay, but we hope you're following good cooking habits at home!
September is harvest season. If you are a gardener, you may be overwhelmed with the bounty right now. There's something about fresh food that demands attention to be processed and preserved that non-gardeners don't understand. (Kind of like "make hay when the sun shines." It's non negotiable:) Gardeners know how to perform a kind of triage: what is best left on the vine; what has to be processed immediately; what crops will be fine in a box or bushel basket for a few days and when will I actually find time to clean up the kitchen and eat the abundance of fresh picked goodies!
Did anyone use this "shelter at home" time to plant a garden? Were you able to involve your kids or grandkids? Did you know that gardening has become part of some schools curriculum to teach children where good, healthy food actually comes from? Did you know the origins of essential oils and nutritional supplements are plant based? :)
Young Living has helped millions of people "rediscover" where essential oils come from, where their little colored pills come from and where good health comes from. An organic, whole food diet, supplementing for the lack of minerals and other vitamins that have been depleted from our soils, is the foundation of education in our industry. We aren't driven by sales. We are driven by God's bountiful resources that can change lives. Lifestyle can be taught!
We hope you have visited a Young Living farm. We hope you support farmer's markets, roadside markets and small family farms that value the precious soil, seeds, environment and work ethic that makes us strong and healthy. Enjoy the recipes our members share this month and remember what an awesome blessing we have in our Young Living family and with the Rising Stars!
