Food for all Seasons

Fresh fruits and vegetables are essential to healthy living. The colors, aromas, and tastes spice up any meal and enliven the senses. They’re also one of the best sources for the vitamins and minerals that the body needs every day.

However, nobody likes mushy apples or bitter broccoli. Eating enough of these food pyramid staples isn’t easy, and when they’re far from perfectly ready, the task of getting your daily allowance isn’t appealing. So how do you know what time of the year you’ll be able to find fruits and veggies at their peak?

We’ve made the graphic below to help you get more color in your diet. Print it and take it with you every time you visit the grocery store. And when you’ve made your selections, don’t forget to wash your produce with Thieves Fruit & Veggie Soak for cooking at home and Thieves Fruit & Veggie Spray for eating fresh produce on the go! These two unique products gently wash produce and offer a boost of Thieves® essential oil blend, so you can enjoy your fruits and vegetables no matter where you are—just as nature intended.

    I Buy lots of fresh produce in season and purée in blender like vita-mix, then pour into ice cube trays and freeze. Pop out and store in freezer bags so you have on hand for smoothies, ice cream, healthy snacks all year long!

    When cooking and baking and recipes call for lemon juice or lime juice, can you substitute 1T of water with a drop of Lemon oil to the recipe versus the 1 T lemon juice?

      Hi Kelly, If a recipe calls for juice or zest, we would recommend adding 10–15 drops of the desired oil. Happy cooking/baking!

    Cherries are the one fruit I adore! Bananas are my go to daily fruit but seasonally, it would say it is cherries.

    I love the fresh organic apples in the fall. I make everything with them from apple sauce to pies, crisp, bread and my newest apple pie smoothie! Of course I use some of my Young Living essential oils in place of the spices. So much better!
