I love Mexican food. The flavors, the spices and fresh vegetables are all SO delicious.
But sometimes when you go out to eat Mexican food, it isn't so healthy, right? Well, guess what? I've got a recipe that you'll love AND is rock-star healthy.
Here is my favorite recipe for vegan Mexican pizza!

I love to use essential oils in addition to or instead of traditional herbs because they have 70% or more of the therapeutic benefits than the actual plant.
Basil oil: improves alertness, memory and metabolism, aids in digestion
, and fights depression, fatigue and headaches.
Cilantro oil: helps with anti-aging, is a blood cleanser and natural detoxifier, fights inflammation and aids in cardiovascular health.
Oregano oil: aids in digestion, is an immune stimulant and fights bacterial and viral infections.
