Delicious Grilled Vegan Daiya Cheddar Tofurky Melt Recipe

Delicious Grilled Vegan Daiya Cheddar Tofurky Melt Recipe that my family loves from my upcoming soon to be published delicious vegan cookbook.

Grilled Daiya Cheddar Cheese melt with Smoked Tofurky, Avocado, and Tomato on organic vegan whole wheat bread

Ingredients
2 slices of your favorite organic vegan bread, lightly toasted
2 tbsp Original flavor Vegenaise, spread evenly
2 slices of smoked flavor Tofurky
2 tbsp soft ripe avocado, spread evenly. 

Instructions:  If you want to melt the cheese, pour 2 tbsp Daiya Cheddar on 2 slices of bread and toast or bake in the toaster oven at 275 or 300 degrees for 5 minutes.  Remove bread and Daiya Cheddar from the oven and put the sandwich together.  An easier quicker way to do make it is to use an OrGreenic non-toxic non-stick ceramic pan and all you have to do is grill on medium or 5 or 6 on an electric burner for 5 minutes until toasted brown on each side.  This sandwich is great for busy stressed Mamas who need a quick delicious nourishing sandwich for their children.   Serve and Enjoy!

Young Living Essential Oils Purification Helps Me In Polluted Environments

Young Living Essential Oils proprietary blend, Purification, is incredible for its healing benefits, especially when I'm in a situation where I'm being severely polluted and I have to wear a facial mask to breathe.  I'm severely chemically sensitive and I suffer from painful respiratory difficulties from exposure to toxic secondhand smoke and synthetic toxic perfume and Purification has saved my life countless times.  I pour 3 drops into the palm of my hand and diffuse into the air or I put 3 drops onto my face mask and I breathe it in and it makes breathing much easier until I can get to a safer environment with safer healthier air.  



Purification is a wonderful proprietary blend made by Young Living Essential Oils and it contains an antiseptic blend of Citronella (Cymbopogon nardus), lemongrass (Cymbopogon flexuosus), rosemary (Rosemarinus officinalis), melaleuca (Melaleuca alternifolia), lavandin (Lavandula x hybrida) and myrtle (Myrtus communis) formulated for diffusing to purify and cleanse the air and neutralize mildew, cigarette smoke, and unhealthy polluting odors.  I carry a bottle in my purse everywhere I go and I use it any time I feel that my health is suffering.  I feel very safe and comforted knowing that I have my own natural remedy when I need it.  For more information about this lovely blend and many other wonderful blends that YLEO formulates and sells, please visit my independent distributor website:  http://www.notperfume.com/essential7.html  To your health!

True Inner Beauty Comes From Healthy Self Love and Self Care

As a new Mother of an active teething little boy, healthy self-care is very important to me.  When I feel great inside and out, I feel alive and energized, relaxed and filled with joy.  The moments when I feel this joy the most are after a lovely, soothing, cleansing bath or shower, intimate moments with my family, playing in the great outdoors, and enjoying a delicious, healthy, homemade meal.  These special moments when I feel wonderful are priceless and poetic and I feel balanced in every way.  No amount of my favorite organic lipstick or moisturizer can give me this profound feeling of beautiful relaxation. 


Don't me wrong, I enjoy wearing organic makeup once in a while, but when I feel cool fresh breezes on my skin and blowing lightly through my freshly shampooed hair, the beautiful feeling I feel inside and out comes from the wonderful self-care I enjoy everyday.  Add restful meditation, healthy yoga stretches, and a wonderful dose of my favorite comedy every night and I feel incredibly relaxed and strong.  True beauty and the wonderful feeling I feel that helps me feel beautiful is the wonderful self-care I do to help me stay well, happy, and feeling good.  For me, this is the true essence of healthy, nontoxic, organic beauty.

Sign the petition to protect Oregon Eco Systems and Wildlife from Harmful Man Made Noise and Sonic Assault

Shhh, what do #peace and #quiet mean to you? Do you hear beautiful natural bird, wind, and cricket sounds? Are these natural beautiful sounds drowned out by overpowering toxic man made noises that are destroying the sound scape? Are you able to enjoy gentle quiet moments while relaxing and connecting with Mother Nature?  Are these horrible man made noises and ground-pounding thumping thudding interfering with your peaceful quiet enjoyment and disrupting the natural life cycles of the ecosystem and wildlife?  


                                                                   

Are you tired of savoring those moments of peace and quiet after a stressful week, only to have it painfully rudely disrupted by inconsiderate selfish individuals who have no respect for the law or other people's need for #privacy and #solitude?  Does it take hours to soothe and comfort your baby to sleep and only to have it rudely set back so that you have to repeat the exhausting process all over again?  We all have our right to our own personal private space that we need to honor and respect in each other.  Please join #citizens throughout the state of #Oregon to say "enough is enough" and take back our much deserved right to peace and quiet and traffic safety.  Please sign this #petition and tell your friends!  Thank you!  http://loud.vze.com/

My husband enjoys simple organic green beauty and selfcare

My dear husband is my equal partner and feels the same way about toxic synthetic fragrance as I do.  He wasn't always chemically sensitive.  He was one of those guys who slapped on a whole bunch of his favorite commercial cologne to smell like a masculine guy.  He even worked as a fragrance model a couple times in a shopping mall, until one day when he was assigned to a temporary job assignment and the cleanup workers there poured too much commercial cleanser on the floor and caused a toxic spill.  When he arrived there, the air was overpowering with toxic chemicals and he felt very ill.  He couldn't breathe or concentrate and quickly returned home to rest and recuperate. 

Since then, he has not been the same.  Today, my dear husband shares my strong distaste for all adulterated synthetic fragrance products.  I wrote my book  that teaches men and women how to enjoy organic nontoxic beauty.  My dear husband came up with the wonderful creative title, Keep Your Vanity Without Losing Your Sanity, and the reason he came up with it is because he is fed up with the obsession with vanity, but more important, he is fed up with the effect that these toxic fragrances have on his breathing, his lungs, and his ability to concentrate.

Today, my dear husband keeps his cleanliness and grooming very simple and basic and is happy as long as he is clean, groomed, and smells clean.  He enjoys a few drops of his favorite organic essential oils, like spearmint, sandalwood, and patchouli on his face for soothing comfort after he shaves, splashes his face with refreshing cool water, and he feels good and ready to go about his day.  My husband and I both love Gandhi's famous #quote:  "Live simply so that others may simply live."  Simplicity is beautiful and the more we humans simplify our life, the healthier and happier we are and that is the greatest gift we can give to Honor Mother Earth and our children.
