New Year's Eve Pet Safety Tips

New Year’s Eve is the one party that the whole world is invited to, and it’s just days away! As we get ready to ring in 2017 with a loud, colorful display of festive fireworks, we need to remember to keep our furry friends safe. The excitement of the sparkling, popping and cracking sounds might be fun for humans, but it can make many pets agitated and scared. Without proper care, pets can get lost during the festivities. Here are a few helpful tips to keep your furry friend safe this New Year’s Eve:

*Make sure your pet is wearing a collar with identification tags with current information. Cats should wear break away / safety collars. Microchipping your pet is always advised.

*Keep your pets indoors in a quiet area that is familiar to him / her with plenty of fresh water and give dogs several safe chew toys. Dogs who are crate trained may feel safest in their kennels. Cats will do best in a closed bedroom, quiet bathroom or utility room with food, water and their litter box.

*Resist the urge to soothe and comfort your agitated pet as this can actually reinforce his / her stressed behavior. Instead, stay calm and “matter of fact” when dealing with a pet who is upset by loud noises.

*Frightened outdoor dogs have been known to jump high fences and dig holes to escape the sound of fireworks. Indoor animals should be kept away from large glass windows or doors because when scared they are capable of crashing right through.

*Make sure to keep all alcohol, festive foods / chocolates, floral arrangements and party decorations away from your pets. Alcohol can be dangerous and deadly while balloons, streamers, party hats and confetti can become lodged in your pet’s intestines, causing an intestinal blockage. Chocolate is especially toxic to both canines and felines.

Please remember to keep a watchful eye on your pet and put the name and number of your veterinarian and local animal emergency clinic in a designated area.

YL's True Grit™ Einkorn Rotini

Known as one of the oldest varieties of wheat, einkorn’s natural genetic code and low gluten levels make it more compatible with the human body than modern, hybridized wheat. This makes einkorn grain easier to digest so that nutrients are better absorbed. Many of these nutrients are also more abundant in einkorn grain than in modern wheat, making einkorn a must-have for your pantry. Made of highly nutritious, unhybridized einkorn flour, Gary’s True Grit™ Einkorn Rotini is your go-to foundation for nutritious, delicious, fun meals that bring the goodness of einkorn wheat to the dinner table. Einkorn Rotini is just one more way Young Living is delivering goodness from our fields to your family. 

Key Ingredients:

Stoneground einkorn flour grown in France by artisan farmers. 


Einkorn Rotini’s fun spiral shape and naturally slightly sweet flavor will be a hit for the whole family. Just add some marinara and a drop of Basil Vitality™, Thyme Vitality, and Oregano Vitality oils for a simple, wholesome meal the entire family will love. Recipes for delicious pasta sauces can be found in our cookbook, From Our Fields to Your Table. 

Product Overview:

Gary’s True Grit Einkorn Rotini is made from einkorn flour grown in France by artisan farmers. Einkorn is the original “staff-of-life” grain, known as the oldest variety of wheat, which dates back to the beginning of time. It is believed to be one of the first cultivated foods. 

Benefits & Features:

• Einkorn is non-GMO. 

• Gary’s True Grit Einkorn Rotini contains no artificial flavors, colors, or preservatives. 

• An ancient grain, einkorn is known as one of the oldest varieties of wheat. 

• A “hulled” grain, einkorn’s hull can protect it against contamination and insects. 

• Einkorn’s genetic code has only 14 chromosomes, compared to modern wheat with its 42 chromosomes. Its unique genetics give einkorn a lower gluten content than modern varieties of wheat. 

• Einkorn has a more favorable gliadin to glutenin ratio than modern wheat varieties. Einkorn has a gliadin to glutenin ratio of 2:1 compared to 0.08:1 for durum and hard red wheat. 

• Grown and stone-ground in France by artisan farmers and millers, Young Living’s einkorn products are produced in small batches using traditional methods.

Q. How is Einkorn Rotini packaged? How many servings are there per package? 

A. Einkorn Rotini comes in a clear plastic package. Each bag contains 9 ounces (250 grams) of dry pasta or approximately 4.4 2-ounce servings. 

Q. Are nuts, soy, dairy, or eggs present in Einkorn Rotini? 

A. The only ingredients in Einkorn Rotini are einkorn flour and water. However, it is manufactured in a facility that also processes tree nuts, peanuts, soy, milk, and eggs, so we cannot guarantee against cross-contamination with those ingredients. 

Q. How is einkorn different from other wheat options? 

A. Einkorn has 14 chromosomes, whereas modern wheat has 42 chromosomes, which in turn has changed its gluten level and overall structure. for the granola, holding it together.

Break Away From Unhealthy, Sugar-Laden Sports Drinks!

Learn more and place your order here:

Americans are deficient in minerals. In fact, way back in 1936, the Department of Agriculture told congress that 99% of the population was deficient. Regrettably, there are many more recent studies confirming varying amounts of mineral deficiencies in our diet, mainly due to their depletion in our soil. 

We need minerals! Vitamins cannot work properly without them and they are absolutely vital to maintain our mental and physical well-being. Since the body cannot manufacture minerals, they must come from our diet. 

Life’s Abundance Minerals & Antioxidants drink mix is a delicious way to supplement your diet. 

This unique mix is made with a variety of freshly harvested sea vegetables and contains approximately 74-plant based, naturally chelated, trace minerals. For an additional nutritional boost, it also contains antioxidants from 11 nutrient-rich super fruits like acai, cranberry, goji, maqui and pomegranate ... making this a high ORAC beverage blend. ORAC stands for oxygen radical absorbance capacity and it's a way of measuring the antioxidant level, which is important because antioxidants are essential to good health. 

Unlike many liquid water enhancers made from chemicals, our formula is made with coconut water and aloe vera and it does not contain any added sugar, artificial flavors, colors or preservatives. The organic coconut water replaces electrolytes plus it is alkalizing, which helps to restore a natural pH balance in the body and counters the effects of an acidic diet. 

Instead of giving you a sugar crash like most other “health” drinks, our Minerals & Antioxidants mix gives you sustained energy. 

Give hydration a boost with Life’s Abundance Minerals & Antioxidants. In two delicious flavors, Cherry and Tropical Fruit, pour into a water bottle for a convenient, go-anywhere nutritious drink. Take it to the gym or give a bottle to the kids … it’s delicious, refreshing and nourishing!
