Feeling sluggish and a bit worn out? Brain not firing on all cylinders? You may need to add some quick and easy nutrition to your diet. Why?

When it comes to your health, think of food as the fuel your body needs to keep going. Just like your car needs gas, your body needs a steady supply of nutrients like those found in colorful fruits and veggies. Without them, your body might start beeping at you like a fuel gauge on empty!

If you're not regularly eating a variety of colors, your body is begging for help. This might be why you crave unhealthy snacks like chips or candy bars. But don't worry, there are simple ways to give your body the nutrition it craves.

Here are four easy steps to get started with:

1. Create a nutrition budget just like you would for any other regular expense. You need a budget for car maintenance, you also need a budget for body maintenance! 
2. Remember, live foods are different than junk food. Junk food is just empty calories. Live food is fuel. Make choices that fuel your body and brain.
3. It can be challenging to get enough nutrients from food alone, so consider using products from Young Living to supplement your diet starting with our favorite four! 
4. Keep your favorite fruits and veggies on hand and in easy reach. When we are feeling snarky, we will reach for what is close and easy. Keep some of your favorite fruits and veggies close so you reach for that good fuel. 

Make yourself a priority by giving your body the care it deserves. With a little effort, you can fuel it like a pro and feel your best every day!


Why are these 4 products our favorite? It's because they are quick, easy, power packed, and can travel with you if you're a busy parent, hard working away from home or a world traveler. These products will also give you a sound nutritional foundation on which the rest of your health can be built. 

Let's start with my ABSOLUTE #1 daily product, NingXia Red: 

This beautiful red drink contains everything you need to get your day started right. It's filled with Ningxia wolfberry puree, Blueberry juice concentrate, plum juice concentrate, cherry juice concentrate, aronia juice concentrate, pomegranate juice concentrate. Plus, you get the added benefits of Orange, Yuzu, Lemon, Tangerine essential oil.

Check out the science behind NingXia Red in the below video.

Here's a fun visual of all the fabulous nutrients you get by just drinking 2 ounces of NingXia Red. 

Now we're talking!!! Here are your colors of the rainbow, plus essential oils for added support. 

You could stop right there and be doing good for your body, but with the addition of one simple scoop of greens, you add in all of the greens your body needs. 

Inside each serving of NingXia Greens, you’ll find 50 fermented whole foods, five varieties of immune-supporting mushrooms, and wolfberry fruit and sprouted leaves from our Seed to Seal® farm in Ningxia, China. All that plant-based goodness is carefully extracted using a heat-free method so you can enjoy the full nutrients and healthy benefits they have to offer.

With this unique blend of superfood ingredients, greens, and premium essential oils, Young Living has taken the guesswork out of your nutrition needs. All you have to do is scoop, stir, and enjoy!

  • NingXia wolfberry fruit powder and sprouted leaves: Also known as goji berries, wolfberries come from an ancient plant, long praised in China for its powerful health benefits.
  • Maitake, reishi, turkey tail, shiitake, and enokitake mushrooms: A source of soluble fiber known as beta glucans, these mushrooms help support a healthy immune system.*
  • Fermented Superfood Blend: A fermented superfood blend that delivers nutrients that are difficult to obtain from a typical diet, this proprietary combination also contains enzymes to support optimal digestion.*
  • Purslane: An edible succulent, this ingredient is one of the few vegetables that’s rich in plant-based omega-3 fatty acids, vitamins, and minerals—including copper, magnesium, iron, manganese, and potassium, vitamin E, and vitamin C. Purslane is also a uniquely rich source of 184 phytochemical compounds, including phenolic acids, alkaloids, and flavonoids, which act as antioxidants.
  • Secale cereale flower pollen extract: A non-allergenic and sustainably sourced extract that contains full- spectrum nutrients such as amino acids, phytosterols, fatty acids, carotenoids, flavonoids, vitamins, minerals, and enzymes, this extract is clinically shown to display antioxidant and detoxifying capacity and maintain cellular oxidative stress through significant decrease of GSSG (oxidized glutathione).*
