Have we talked about our friends over at @urbanartisanfarm? They grow tons of veggies, roots and mushrooms indoors at their hydroponic farm. Pesticide free, fresh and delicious. Oh and they carry our coffee at their farm stand too! Go check them out, they’re at Gasoline Alley on Albany street in Springfield. You also might want to check out that location for something special coming soon to Monsoon! #monsoonroastery#urbanartisanfarm#hydroponics#cleanveggies
Our farmer’s market finds. These goodies will be used throughout the week. We will be trying a few new recipes, and if I remember, I’ll try and share them here. All of this cost less than ✌🏼 drinks at Starbucks. ☕️ #Priorities
I know it isn’t prime berry season anymore, but I thought I’d share this because it’s so important to clean your produce all year round! #imafoodie .
If you don’t know already there’s a list called The Dirty Dozen, which is comprised of the top twelve fruits and vegetables that have the most pesticide residue.🤮🤢🙅🏼♀️
The Dirty Dozen:
12) Sweet Bell Pepper’s
So, the next time you wash your produce, soak it in water with a few drops of Lemon oil to help get all those unwanted chemicals off of your fruits and veggies! Trust me, you (and your body) will be glad you did! 🤗🍎
Having baked potatoes so I got out the fruit and veggie scrub cloth and used it to wash all the dirt and other stuff off! Look at the difference of one straight out of the bag and one done! It didn’t take but about 5 min to do four of them and if I would’ve kept going I would’ve started to take the skin off of the potato. #savetime#savemoney#nochemicals#lesswaste#cleanveggies#norwex#norwexclean
I love this stuff. I throw a capful in my spray bottle and fill with white vinegar and water. Gently spray off my fruit with water and then again with my veggie soak mix. Let sit, massage lightly. Rinse with water and enjoy!
Lately I’ve been obsessed with making my Grandma Margie’s Tomato Soup. Bless her soul, I miss her.
Thanks for the extra tomatoes @kagulenie and @brookeharth ❤️.

She asked, "Mom, can I make a beard with the bubbles?" I hesitated to respond immediately because I had JUST put Thieves Cleaner in the left side of the sink to clean our fruit from Costco. Before, I would've said no right away because who wants cleaner on their kid's face?!?! But, then I said, "Sure!" because it's Thieves Cleaner. It's 💯 percent plant based and full of immune supporting Thieves and only good things and cleans way better than any cleaner I've ever used...not a hint of questionable bad stuff. To be able to let the kids put Thieves Cleaner bubbles, to clean every surface of our home without disrupting hormones or wreaking havoc on the respiratory system feels so good as a mom.
And another Thieves product that I LOVE! Fruit & Veggie Spray 🍓🌿
I keep this in my kitchen on my oil stand on my counter so it is out in the open to use at any time! I will bring all of my fresh fruit out of the fridge and do it all at once! 🍇
I spray it all over my fruit and gently rub my fruit for 30-45 seconds or so and then rinse it off with water and I portion all of my fruit while it’s all out in bags/containers whatever I need it to be in. In all honesty if I didn’t portion it all or cut it accordingly my husband would never eat it 🤦🏽♀️, too much work to pull it out of the fridge.. wash it... then cut it up. This spray makes it super simple to do and get it all done at once! 🍽
From being cleaned, rinsed, cut and straight to the toddlers plate in minutes all for $10.75, never run low in this our home! 👧🏽
Got my Monthly Wellness box yesterday!!! New to this box is the fruit and veggie soak... excited to try it!! A regular to my box is Sleepyize... with 4 boys and a little girl on the way I am stocking up on this amazing oil for my littles... and mama!!!
✨Snacks on the GO✨
I love my little freebie lunchbox from #bakersdelight it’s the perfect size to add my fruits and veggies to snack on for lunch.
I don’t eat organic, I do my best to go to a local green grocer as it’s quite difficult sometimes to get there however where ever I go.
This is what I do:
Add a couple of drops of DōTERRA lemon to the bowl, lunch box and add water give it a mix around.
When I think of Lemon I think of cleansing.
The lemon helps to break down any nasties as well as that gross waxy film you see on some fruit and veg. .
Give it a whirl.
Mix it around, drain the water and enjoy 😊 .
When you are making a monster Cesar salad for the fam jam, soaking your leafy greens in Thieves fruit and veggie cleaner is part of the bomb squad. Thieves is powerful enough to clean off all the chemicals regardless if it is organic or not, germs from travelling from point A to B and any toxins. Gentle enough to leave your fruit bright, healthy and tasting better. Not only that, but it stays fresher for longer.
I don't know about you, but I hate wasting my fresh fruit to fur in the fridge after a day or 2.
Take the cleaning challenge with Thieves, your tastebuds will thank you.
Want to know more?
Want it tomorrow? I can do that for you😊
I saw someone post a bowl of dirty water from washing fruit with Thieves cleaner and I didn’t want to believe it. How can it be THAT dirty?! 🍲 🍲 🍲
If you know me, I am usually not one to be super diligent about washing my fruit. I think I will be after today!!! This bowl of dirty water is mine, after washing my strawberries 🍓. No filter. No exaggeration.
Thieves is a plant based blend that has been around for generations! The fruit and veggie wash is a new MUST in my house! #oilylife#naturalhealth#wellness#youngliving#cleanfruit#cleanveggies#thieves
Anyone else part of a farm share? 🍆🥦🥕🌽🌶
My in-laws supplier a share with us and bring us bags full of goods in the weekly. It's such a great way to increase the veggie intake and force my cooking brain to use what we've got! 🍆🥦🥕🌽🌶
P.S. This Thieves fruit and veggie soak 👌🏻
#farmshare#freshveggies#diffusingandmusing thieves thieves #youngliving#cleanveggies
Canning is work. But it’s the good kind that does something for your soul. It reminds me of my grandmas and a simpler time... putting the phones down. Spending time with my mom. It’s the best. And this homemade spaghetti sauce... STOp! #homegrown#homemade#gardenfresh
How do you clean your fruit + veg?
With all the possible germs, bacteria, pesticides and wax that are on commercial produce, washing your fruits + veggies is a must!
This is what I’ve been doing:- I fill a ceramic bowl with warm water, a few drops of each of the On Guard + Lemon and a splash of Apple Cider Vingar and let it soak for 20 mins or so and rinse. Wild Orange works well also.
Lemon naturally cleanses and purifies surfaces.
On Guard protective blend helps support healthy immune function and cleanses surfaces so the combination of the two create an effective cleaner. ・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・

When you buy all the veggies and a few fruits for your diet and little one, you make a system out of washing alllll of it lol. SOOOO GLAD I have my thieves fruit and veggie wash...a couple of sprays into the veggie/fruit water and soak for a couple minutes...EVEN if you buy #organic you still have dirt, farmer fingers, dirty air, grocery workers hands, etc touching alllll your food. Ummm #yuck !!! And not using organic??? (I don’t usually because $$$) then you have all the fertilizers, pesticides, waxes, and all the other stuff that I listed with organic...double #gross ...
If you eat fruit and veggies #youneedthis ...and #bonus this little bottle still lasts like 2-6 months depending on how much you eat. That 8.50 goes a LONNNNGGGG way.....
