Motivation Monday: Meaningful Work

Motivation-Monday-Meaningful-Work-Crystal-Peterson-Image

Hard work is good. Good work is hard.

Making the most of what you do is so important. When I started Seasonest, I wanted the company to mean something. It certainly means a lot to our family, but we want it to be something even more.

Our brand has the potential to do a lot for others. It’s inspirational! I love sharing the story behind our brand and how my father was so taken by the food in New Orleans that he handmade his own seasoning blend, which later inspired our Original Blend, the first of our flavors. The company means a lot to me as it’s a dream my father once had that I now carry and have the blessing of seeing grow. Sometimes someone needs that spark or that inspiring story that reminds them that anything good can grow out of some hard work, determination and passion.

Our seasoning blends can make meals into masterpieces. For example, picky eaters LOVE our Mild Blend! Sometimes it just takes that special something to get your kids excited about food. Perhaps someone is more confident in their cooking, or has an easier time eating healthier and meal prepping because they use our seasonings. Good flavor goes a long way!

Our seasonings are healthy and all-natural. Some are even salt-free. They have the potential to be used by those with certain food allergies, who wouldn’t otherwise be able to try different flavors or spice blends. Gluten free, non-GMO… there are so many reasons our seasonings have the opportunity to benefit someone’s health!

We’ve worked hard to bring Seasonest to you and hope to continue to see the benefits that we can bring to family, friends and fans all over and that you’ll continue sharing your stories with us.

Have a great Monday!

Motivation Monday: Things to Think About

Life is hard. But, it’s also wonderful and full of new joys every day. Sometimes it takes someone else to help us see the good in things when we’re at our wits’ end or just don’t see the opportunities in front of us. Because of this, we wanted to change things up a bit and share some of our favorite motivational quotes with you to help inspire a more motivated you this Monday!

Firstly, we must debunk that thought you have running through your mind. No more saying you can’t cook! Are you putting food on the table? Yes. Are you and those you care for eating it? Yes. Think about how great of an impact you are having by providing needed nutrition that is being EATEN to those you love. Once you realize that kind of an impact you are having, take a step back and realize… you’re cooking! If it’s a matter of you not liking the flavor of your food, we can most definitely help with that. Seasonings do make a difference! Remember, though: You CAN cook.

Never forget that you’ve got flavor! You’re a unique person with your very own personality and style. Don’t ever let anyone tell you otherwise. Whether you’re spicy, soulful, original, or even a combination of them all, make sure to share your unique flavor with the world! The spice you add to the world’s recipe is special and important.

Are there any personal goals that you have? How about some ambitious dreams? It’s so wonderful to have hope for the future and what you can accomplish. Sometimes we can get a bit sidetracked or doubtful in ourselves and lose our excitement or confidence in our abilities and the dreams we have for ourselves. Believe in yourself and don’t give up; your dreams hold great value. You have those dreams for a reason; now, make sure to pursue them!

Amidst our hustle and bustle and wanting to live our lives comfortably, we can forget that there are others in the world and that they have great value, too. As people, we need other people and no matter how independent or confident we try to be, we will always come back to the realization that our relationships are one of the most important parts of our lives. Take care of those around you, love them from the bottom of your heart and even though it can be challenging, make sure to put them first. I can assure you that it will make a big difference.

Have you ever realized how amazing our world is? When you look back through history, you can see how far we’ve come and what all we have accomplished. Can you believe that indoor plumbing wasn’t always a thing? How about cars, the internet, grocery stores or cell phones? People have an amazing capacity to dream and create. What dreams do you have? As Walt Disney said, “If you can dream it, you can do it.”


If you’re feeling inspired, make sure to share this with others. You never know how big of an impact some motivation and inspiration can have on someone!

Abundant Blessings,

Motivation Monday: Famous Company Slogans

Inspirational Slogans Blog

With 2016 under way, we are determined to get motivated towards being healthier versions of ourselves.

It’s not always easy to get up out of bed an extra hour or two early to work out or to drink the green mixture you concocted in the blender the night before instead of the fast and easy breakfast burrito, but you do it anyways on the way to a better you. Of course, you probably had some encouragement or inspiration along the way, right? We find that there are great motivators all around us in our everyday lives. We’ve found our everyday inspiration in some pretty fantastic company slogans that motivate us and we hope they motivate you, too!

1. Nike- “Just do it.”

Why we like it: The message is clear and simple; get out and get going. Sometimes, you have to be tough on yourself. And always, you have to be honest… So, there’s really no point in arguing with yourself when you’re aware that all you have to do is get out there and do it (exercise, eating well, etc.).

2. Adidas- “Impossible is Nothing”

Why we like it: You’re running and running and suddenly you’re more trudging along than anything. All you can think is, “This is impossible. How am I going to climb that hill?” And then, you think of this slogan. It may be an uphill climb back home on your jogging path, but you make it.

3. Subway- “Eat Fresh”

Why we like it: Ah, yes… we love this one. We are all about fresh ingredients and fresh food. When we make our seasonings, we use all-natural, fresh spices and herbs. When we cook meals, we make sure that whatever is going into our bodies is fresh! It makes a world of difference.

4. Energizer- “Keeps going and going and going.”

Why we like it: When you think of this slogan, it’s hard not to imagine the pink rabbit with the drum. It doesn’t give up! And even when we want to, just thinking of this little rabbit gets us back into gear. Sometimes, you just have to pretend you’re made of infinite battery power and power through! You’ll like the results.

5. L’Oréal- “Because I’m worth it.”

Why we like it: When you’re eating right and exercising, you’re doing it for yourself. You’re taking care of your body! You have to remember that you’re worth every bit of green breakfast juice and early morning workouts. A healthier you is a happier you and you are totally worth it.

We hope this inspires you and that you have a wonderful Monday!

A New Year Has Come

Blog New Year's Resolutions Fri 1-1-16

Happy 2016!

Can you believe the new year is already here? Farewell 2015… it’s on to new things! To ring in the new year, we’ve got some 2016 new years’ resolutions made and we intend to keep them (Please pray for strength to keep them.).

Everyone seems to do the same resolutions each year (Which, we think is wonderful and intend to have some repeats ourselves!), but we wanted to think a bit outside of the box and inspire ourselves and you with some ideas that might get your year off to the best and brightest start yet.

Here we go!

  1. Help your brother– Sibling by birth, sibling by faith, sibling by choice… however you obtained your filial friend, take on some responsibilities that make them feel loved and important! It can be something as simple as doing one of their usual chores or even buying a random stranger a coffee on a cold day. Simple and straightforward are totally fine. :)
  2. Call your mother– Keep in touch with your loved ones. You get one life on this earth and you get one of each person that comes into your life, so treat them well and don’t take them for granted!
  3. Save the world– We may not always think about the impact of our daily routines on our planet, but it would be nice to try doing small things each day to make the world better for each other and for posterity. Wash your hair one less time a week and learn to compost or reuse items in unconventional ways. Again, simple things are totally fine and make a big difference.
  4. See the world– You don’t always have to travel to find new things, but if you do have the opportunity to travel, take it! What we really want to emphasize is seeing the world through someone else’s eyes and really taking time to listen to them. Talk to your grandparents about their childhoods. Talk to the homeless man about his dreams. You can also read a book and learn a whole lot about a whole lot of things you didn’t know that you didn’t know.
  5. Help yourself– Give more, take less, walk more, drive less, smile more, frown less, breathe more, worry less… Make sure you take time for yourself. It may be five minutes a day, but give yourself to yourself for just a moment. You need it. It’s not selfish to take care of yourself (moms…)! Enjoy living and breathing and make sure you take time to reflect on all that you’ve been blessed with in your life.

Simple? We hope so. Difficult to implement? Maybe so, but we hope that these ideas really jump start something wonderful for you.

Happy 2016. :)
