Ingredients 

For the pizza: 

  • Pizza dough (store-bought or homemade)

  • ½ cup white beans (cannellini work great) 
  • Salt and pepper to taste 
  • Milk to thin sauce, if desired 

Instructions 

  1. Preheat your oven to 550 °F. (If your oven doesn’t go that high, 500 °F is okay.) Place a pizza stone on the oven’s upper middle rack of the oven. 
  2. Prepare the pizza crust according to your recipe’s instructions.  
  3. Prepare the sauce by adding all of the sauce ingredients into a small food processor. Puree until smooth, scraping down the sides as needed. Set aside.  
  4. Sauté the cleaned, chopped leeks in a cast iron or sauté skillet for 3–5 minutes, or until tender. Add the chopped spinach and sauté until wilted.  
  5. Roll out the pizza crust on a sheet of parchment paper. Spread the creamy white bean sauce on top of the dough.  
  6. Top the pizza with the sautéed leek and spinach mixture. Sprinkle with the Italian seasoning, Parmesan cheese, white beans, and quartered artichoke hearts. Top with a few slices of mozzarella cheese.  
  7. Remove the pizza from the parchment paper and place on the pizza stone. Bake for 5–10 minutes, or until the crust is crispy and the cheese is melted. Serve and enjoy!

Guacamole

Homemade guacamole is one of the easiest recipes you will ever attempt. No fancy equipment needed aside from your own muscles, you can quickly whip this recipe together before any gathering.

Now, I know what you’re thinking. With lime juice and chopped cilantro, why put essential oils in at all? The answer is in the incredible benefits you get by taking Lime and Cilantro essential oil internally. To name just a few: Lime has the power to support colon health, a healthy metabolism, and healthy weight management.* Cilantro, on the other hand, provides important antioxidants that protect your cells from damage.* It also supports a healthy digestive tract.

The added flavor both oils bring to the guacamole is also a plus. Lime essential oil brings an added zest and balances out the rich creaminess of the avocado, while Cilantro oil adds an herbal flavor to the perfect combination of avocado, tomato, and onion.

Ingredients

  • 4 large avocados
  • 2 tablespoons cilantro, chopped
  • 1 lime, juiced
  • ¼ cup onion, chopped
  • 2 medium tomatoes, chopped
  • 4 drops Lime oil
  • 1 drop Cilantro oil
  • Salt to taste

Instructions
