When Colin and I started to change our diet and lifestyle choices, food was our number one target. We made substitutes wherever we could and flours and pastas were high on our list. We have tried many alternatives for flours in our home and notice that some work better than others depending on the recipes we're putting together. Some of our favourite flours have been coconut, buckwheat and brown rice. Now we can also introduce Einkorn into that mix as well.
Young Living has brought Einkorn, an ancient grain, back into the forefront with their unhybridized harvests. Einkorn is easier on the digestive system because of it's low gluten levels and of course, Young Living does not use any chemicals on their farms so they're grown completely naturally and organically.
Young Living now offers six einkorn products that you can introduce to your family's kitchen cupboards and pantries just like we have.
Einkorn Pancake & Waffle Mix
Einkorn Gluten-Free Pancake & Waffle Mix
Einkorn Rotini Pasta
Einkorn Flakes Cereal
Anyone looking for better nutrient rich foods with low to no gluten will be really happy about this alternative for your family. Baking is made easier, pasta dishes will contain easier to absorb nutrients and you can add your favourite pasta sauce on top and even breakfast is ready to go. When the founder of an essential oil company is also a 3rd generation farmer, you get to also reap the rewards of amazing quality food products right to your door.
This is why the Essential Rewards program is so beneficial to anyone who joins Young Living We're not just the world leader in essential oils, but we've also been working hard for 24 years to create a full encompassing lifestyle of healthy products for all areas in your life. Food is just one more aspect that Young Living really cares about. Since food was the primary reason Colin and I changed our lifestyle, we are so happy to see such passion being put into the foods we can now purchase straight from Young Living on our monthly order. And since we earn 25% back on all of our orders as rewards points, we can earn those points back on our food purchases now, too!

Young Living Essential Oils Canada - Meet Tonia and Colin McArthur
5 years ago we never would have imagined that Young Living Essential Oils would be the company that set us free in so many ways. At the time we lived in Calgary, Alberta, Canada and had big dreams of one day retiring to the Okanagan in Kelowna, British Columbia, Canada. But that was something that we did in our 50's and seemed so very far away.
Young Living Canada made that dream a reality and so much sooner than we ever imagined!
We have always been advocates for wholesome and organic foods, alternative health, great wine and a good time. Colin worked in the fitness industry inspiring others to eat better food and exercise smarter and Tonia worked with special needs children by day and had a wine tasting business at night. We had careers in fields that seemed to align with the things that mattered to us yet we didn't feel healthy, happy or fulfilled.
In our spare time we had been making big changes to our diet and home lifestyle in an effort to remove as many, if not all of the toxins and synthetic chemicals from our home. This included our cleaning supplies, personal care products, perfumes and fragrances, shampoo, conditioner, skin care, beauty care and everything in between.
We considered the ways that our bodies were absorbing the products we were using and threw away candles, air fresheners, linen-sprays along with any and all cleaning products with ingredients we couldn't pronounce. Then we were introduced to worlds top essential oil producer Young Living Essential Oils Canada and we finally found the answer we were looking for to substitute almost every last product and the transformation was complete.
We could now provide ourselves, our friends and ultimately our family a cleaner environment to live in
We purchased our Young Living Premium Starter Kit and began diffusing therapeutic grade essential oils to purify the air in our home naturally and added scent that was not only non-toxic for us to be inhaling into our bodies, but also beneficial to our health and wellness.
This was a very new concept we were excited to introduce to everyone we knew!
We had been using essential oils for many reasons prior to finding Young Living but never had we truly explored all of the many benefits each little bottle could have on us. Peeking through our Young Living Canada Product Guide, we eventually decided to try the non-toxic Thieves Household Cleaner, which is now all we use on every surface in our home including toilets and mirrors! We substituted our dish soap, hand-soaps, laundry soap, shampoo, conditioner, toothpaste and much more for Young Living's amazing products. We began to experiment with DIY recipes to include the power of our essential oils for things like deodorant, dryer sheets, doggie shampoo, skin care products, outdoor sprays and much more.
Young Living Essential Oils Canada has allowed us to take control of the products we are using in all aspects of our lives and we can rest assured that anything being absorbed into our skin is not full of synthetic chemicals our bodies are unable to process properly.
Finally, the last piece of the puzzle fits right into place and we are all happier and healthier than we have ever been. It's no surprise then that we began to share our experiences and love for the products with others. We both freed ourselves from the chains of our 9-5 and became full time Young Living Independent Distributors after and are very proud to be introducing the products and lifestyle we love to as many like minded people as we can! Oh yea, we also moved the Kelowna 15 years ahead of schedule!
