One of the things many of us equate the 4th of July with is delicious food! The team at J2 Therapy and Wellness are no different. As we spent time all over Northern Virginia with friends and family celebrating America's 243rd birthday we also indulged in some delicious food.


This installment of Jen's picks represent two delicious recipes straight out of the DoTERRA cookbook which makes it not only yummy but healthy as well.

The first recipe is a basic Vinaigrette for any salad you decide to toss together as it really pairs well with any type of salad you are craving.

- 2/3 cup olive oil

- 1/2 cup champagne or wine vinegar

- 2-3tsps of sugar (alternate: 1-2 drops of stevia to taste)

- 1 tsp of shallots

- 1 tsp of Dijon mustard

- 1/4 tsp minced garlic

- 1-2 drops of wild orange or grapefruit DoTERRA Essential Oils

Mix all ingredients together and enjoy!


Our second pick is a great side dish that pairs nicely with chicken, steak or fish! Lemon Parmesan Asparagus is a guaranteed showstopper on any table.
