Fall is in full swing here in Chicago and in preparation, Monika and I have been using more Thieves® on a regular basis. Thieves® is a blend of Clove, Lemon, Cinnamon Bark, Eucalyptus radiata and Rosemary cinoel. This combination of oils may help it be effective for dealing with various problems related to the immune system making it great for fall. Fun Fact: Thieves® is considered anti-plague, because it was used by thieves in England to protect them from the black plague when stealing from the sick and dying.
This morning I made myself French Toast and added just a drop of Thieves® to the milk… and it was delish!! The cinnamon in the oil blend is the perfect addition to the 7 grain bread and fresh egg. Here is what you’ll need to make it yourself:
- 2-3 slices of 7 grain bread
- 1 farm fresh egg
- 1 splash of milk
- 1 drop of Thieves®
- a pad of butter
- a sprinkle of cinnamon & nutmeg (optional)
Start by cracking the egg into a wide bowl, add the milk and the Thieves®
Wisk together until fully blended
Melt the butter in a frying pan and briefly soak the bread in the egg/milk/Thieves® mixture.
On Medium/High heat, fry the bread until the edges crisp and the eggs are fully cooked.
Sprinkle with cinnamon & nutmeg, Drizzle Maple Syrup on top and serve!
My kitchen skills are… minimal, so if I can make it you can! What ways do you use Thieves® in your cooking?
