This is definitely not your conventional blue box mac & cheese, but it sure it tasty and honestly doesn’t take all that much more time to whip up. I made this for myself in about 15 minutes for lunch, and will definitely be making it again soon…yum! I like to call this one my adult mac & cheese. 😉

Dairy and Gluten Free Mac & Cheese

  • 1/2 cup chopped shiitake or baby portabella mushrooms
  • 1 cup fresh spinach
  • 1.5 T. chopped garlic
  • 1/4 pkg. of gluten free pasta
  • 6 oz. vegan cheddar cheese (I used Daiya)
  • 1 T. olive oil

Prepare pasta according to package, drain and return to the same heated pot. Saute the garlic, spinach, and mushrooms in garlic oil under tender. Add the veggies to the noodles a long with the cheese. The cheese will melt right in. Serve hot. Makes 2 servings.

Sprouts has Enjoy Life Chocolate Chips and Chunks on sale for just $2.99, which in itself is a pretty great price. However, I also noticed some $1.50/2 peelie coupons on many of the Enjoy Life Products, which makes these only $2.24 when you purchase two bags. I was SO excited when I stumbled upon this awesome deal yesterday!

I think it might just be time to stock up for holiday baking too!

We are HUGE fans of Enjoy Life chocolate products in our house…it’s pretty hard to find too many other brands which are free of so many allergens, plus they taste amazing as well. SCORE!

*Please keep in mind that prices and availability of coupons can vary by location.

Maple Honey Slow Cooker Apples!

maple-apples

It’s that time of year again when everything  seems to either be about pumpkins or apples! Luckily, I’m a big fan of both, but don’t always have the time for things like baking an apple pie. 😉

This is also about the time of year that I really start using my slow cooker again a lot, so I figured why not whip up a super simple dessert using one of the most popular fruits of the season…apples.

You’ll find that this now only smells amazing when it’s cooking, but it also is fabulous all on it’s own or served on top of some vanilla ice cream. Yes, don’t worry that is vanilla coconut ice cream (pictured above), so totally dairy-free as well.

Maple Honey Slow Cooker Apples

  • 6 cups apples peeled, cored, and chopped
  • 1/4 c. honey
  • 1/2 c. maple syrup
  • 1 c. apple cider
  • 2 tsps. cinnamon

Add all the ingredients to a slow cooker and cook on low for 5-6 hours. Can be served on it’s own, over vanilla ice cream, or as a topper for waffles or pancakes. If you’re looking for a tried and true pancake recipe don’t forget to check out my Best MSPI-Friend Chocolate Chip Pancakes here.

free-diffusers

Have you still not gotten started with essential oils yet? Have you been waiting for the BEST possible deal to do so? Well if that sounds like you, then here is one that you won’t want to miss, as it truly doesn’t get much better than this!

How about 3 difusers when you get started with essential oils, and 2 of them are going to be FREE?! Seriously, I told you this one was good right? 🙂

1. First things first. You’ll want to select your Young Living Premium Starter Kit, which includes 4 options for a difuser. The Home, Dewdrop, Bamboo or Aria. By doing this not only will you receive a beautiful diffuser, but also many of the oils we use on a daily basis: Everyday Oils collection (with 10 oils), Stress Away bonus oils, AromaGlide Roller Fitment, two Lavender Sample Packets, two Peppermint Sample Packets, two Peace & Calming Sample Packets, two Thieves Sample Packets, and two NingXia Red samples!

#18.2

2. Next you’ll need to sign up for Essential Rewards, which allows you to earn free oils by earning points on products which you are buying anyways. It also give you reduced shipping…sweet! You can change what is in your order as many times as you would like each month, cancel at any time, and even use a grace month to skip an order should you choose to do so.

3. You will now choose which Essential Rewards Kit you would like to add to your order. Some of the most popular options are the Thieves, NingXia Red, and Wellness Kits. All provide a substantial savings over ordering the products individually.

4. Now look at the total PV of your order. You will need to ensure that your total is at least 300 PV to not only qualify for the FREE Home diffuser from Young Living, but a free bottle of Clove Essential Oils, 20 Extra Rewards Points (this is like $20 right here), and a bottle of Thieves Essential Oil. Yes, you’re seeing that right…$157.83 worth of freebies! Wow!

5. If you’re order isn’t at 300 PV, with the Premium Starter Kit (which is 100 PV) and one of the Essential Rewards Kits, choose a few other products to add to get it up to 300 PV. Some of the most popular add-ons this time of year are things like Thieves Waterless Hand Purifier, Thieves Household Cleaner, and Inner Defense. There are also some fabulous gift giving options from the Young Living Holiday Collection which can easily get that total to 300 PV for you, plus help you check some names off your shopping list early too!

You can check out the catalog here.

6. Now I bet you’re thinking wait a minute this is only 2 diffusers, one of which I paid for with my kit, so how in the world am I get two for FREE? Once you’ve completed your qualifying order above, I will send you a Saisonic Diffuser (exact model may vary) a long with over $25 in amazing reference materials to learn all about how to use your oils! If you’ve done the math this means that you will be receiving THREE Diffusers in all! You won’t have to worry about dragging one around from room to room, you’ll be all set in the main area of your home as well as your bedrooms too.

If you have any questions at all please don’t hesitate to email me at rebekah (at) mymspibaby (dot) com and I’ll walk you through the entire process!

Do we have any Chiptole fans in the house? I totally am, and I LOVE that it’s one of the very few quick service restaurants that can accommodate my MSPI diet!

I’ve always really enjoyed their guacamole as well, so I’ve been making a copycat version at home for awhile now, with a little twist of my own of  course. 😉

guac-2

Copycat Chipotle Guacamole

  • 1 ripe avocado mashed
  • 1.5 T. cilantro finely chopped
  • 1/4 tsp. Kosher Salt or Sea Salt
  • 2 T. finely chopped red onion
  • 1/3-1/2 jalapeno pepper chopped (according to how much of a kick you prefer)
  • 5-6 drops of Lime Essential Oil (you can also use lime juice, but personally I’m a BIG fan of the health and wellness benefits provided by using the oil)

After removing the pit and scooping out the avocado, mash it with a fork or potato masher. Combine with remaining ingredients and serve with your favorite tortilla chips or other Mexican dishes.

Seriously, it doesn’t get much easier than that, and oh my is it ever tasty!

8 Uses for Citrus Fresh Essential Oil!

oranges-citrus-fresh

Citrus Fresh Essential Oil is a total favorite of mine! I’ve found so many uses for it around my home, and can’t get enough of the clean refreshing aroma that it provides.

It’s a blend of Orange, Tangerine, Grapefruit, Lemon, Mandarin, and Spearmint…how yummy does that sound?!

1. Make a quick and simple easy carpet freshener by adding 10-15 drops to a box of baking soda and sprinkle a bit on your carpet and rugs. Let sit for a few minutes and vacuum up.

2. Left that load of laundry in the wash machine too long? Seriously, who hasn’t done that from time to time! Just add a few drops of Citrus Fresh and your clothes won’t have that nasty odor.

3. Got some greasy hands and regular old soap isn’t quite cutting it, and a couple of drops of citrus fresh and they should be clean in no time.

4. Use Citrus Fresh to remove sticky residue. Like the time I sent my son’s band new dry fit t-shirt through the washer and dryer with a sticker on it and then proceeded to let it sit for, gasp, months because I didn’t know what to do with it. Yep, Citrus Fresh to the rescue!

5. Pop a few drops of this oily goodness into your diffuser to energize your morning and brighten your mood.

6. Make a refreshing sugar scrub by adding 10 drops to 1 1/2 cups of sugar and 1/4-1/2 cup of coconut oil (depending on how moist you like your scrubs).

7. Make your own air freshener by adding 8-10 drops of Citrus Fresh to a glass spray bottle filled with water and a bit of which hazel.

8. Cleaning seafood or other stinky food prep? Rub a few drops on your hands to get rid of those odors.
