The #essentialpaleo challenge officially ends on July 31st! Have you been wanting to refresh your paleo lifestyle, but grown tired of cooking the same things? Are you interested in using the essential oils in your Premium Starter Kit, but can't remember which recipes I posted this month that fit the oils you already have? Curious about Young Living essential oils and want samples to start your own challenge or jump start next month? This is for you!
Here's a 3 day plan that includes 10 of the 20 recipes. Grocery list at the bottom! If you cook all 10 and post to our FaceBook group and your personal site tagging #essentialpaleo you get a chance to win $20 on your Young Living account or 3 15ml bottles of essential oil used during the challenge for cooking shipped to you!
Don't forget the Promos ending TONIGHT (Tues. July 28th) at MIDNIGHT! Buy a Premium Starter kit and get a bottle of Orange. Kits are $10 off right now!! That means you get 12 oils with your kit!!!
Already own a kit? If you are a current customer and place an order of 100PV or more get a bottle of Orange shipped to you! Did you know as a Young Living Member right now you can purchase a second kit for 10% off? This never happens, so if you've been wanting that second diffuser for your home or office now is a great time to buy!
*Even better: Buy a kit and add on 2 of any of the additional cooking oils we used in the #essentialpaleo challenge and we'll give you Orange EO as well as the Ref Guide to Essential Oils App included! This app is so helpful and gives you quick answers and resources for how to use your oils to cook, clean, and maintain a healthy lifestyle when you get sick!
Listed is a 3 day plan, but honestly it will get you to all week with the leftovers. If you cook for 1 just opt out one of the dinners and make enough for two-three nights with leftovers. If you are cooking for a family this will still get you plenty of leftovers and feed an average family of 4. Enjoy!

Check out Recipe #19 Spicy Paleo Lasagna
Brown the meat in a large skillet. Add the diced onions and garlic. Once the meat is fully cooked, stir in the diced tomatoes, tomato paste, and seasonings. Simmer uncovered for 1 ½ hours, stirring occasionally until the sauce has thickened.
While the sauce is simmering, peel the zucchini and slice it lengthwise. Make each slice a little thicker than a lasagna noodle. A mandolin slicer works well for this if you have one.
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. Grease your baking dish with olive oil.
Spread a thin layer of meat sauce in the bottom of the baking dish. Add a layer of zucchini slices. Spread 1/3 of the remaining sauce over the zucchini. Repeat layers ending with meat sauce on top.
Bake for 30 minutes.
Just a heads up – without noodles and a cheese in the mix, this lasagna doesn’t maintain a neat stacked form like traditional lasagna. It will be a little messier on your plate, but it will still be 100% delicious!
