Spring Cleaning! And… Shopping?

Happy Fun Friday! Happy spring cleaning!

Those things don’t really go together, right? I mean, sometimes cleaning can be pretty blah. Stains, dirt, grime, dust, slime… whatever it may be, it just doesn’t seem to be all that fun to get to the bottom of that cleaning to-do list.

However… who is going to say no to some spring shopping on a Friday? Could you use a little shopping break? Well, now that we’ve got your attention… you can totally use spring cleaning as an excuse to shop!

The kind of spring cleaning we are thinking of is the kind that involves your pantry. Things eventually go bad and you need to restock and replenish. This includes your seasonings and spices! Depending upon the seasoning or spice, you’ll need to change them out sometime between 1-3 years, so make sure to check those labels (All of our products come with easy-to-identify labels with best-to-use-by dates!).

Now, the question is… what do you put back in to your pantry? Here are some ideas:

The Classics

These seasonings can go on just about everything. As my father once joked about the Original Blend, “This seasoning is so good, it will taste great on ice cream, too!” Whether you’re cooking beef, chicken, fish, pasta, or any homemade, healthy dish, you can’t go wrong with the Original Blend, Lemon Pepper Blend, Italian Blend or the Soul Food Blend. They’re all made with organic sea salt and contain spices you’d use in everyday dishes! They aren’t too spicy, so that all palettes can eat them comfortably and add so much flavor to any delicious dish.

The Bold Ones

Fun Seasonings- Blog 3.11.16

When you’re looking to make something spicy, you’ve got to look for seasonings with bold flavor! Whether you’re taking inspiration from the island of Jamaica or the flavors of South America, you know you’re getting something amazingly flavorful. Our recommendations for bold flavor are our Lemon Fire Blend, Jerk Blend, Spicy Blend and Adobo Blend!

The Top Five Reasons to Use Our Seasonings

Hello Everyone and Happy Friday!

You’ve made it. It’s one of the first weeks back since the holidays and you’re doing a great job. Keep up the good work!

We love having the opportunity to encourage and inspire those who read our blogs and postings. It’s really important to live a healthy lifestyle mentally, physically, spiritually and emotionally, and we believe that incorporating our seasonings is a great way to start. We’ve put together a helpful list of reasons why you should be using our seasonings and how it can benefit you.

Blog Infographic (2)

1) The Health Benefits

Each of our all-natural blends offers a variety of herbs and spices that have amazing health benefits. Whether it’s heart health, liver function, acne, etc… there’s something beneficial in our seasonings for everyone. Check out our health benefits blog that goes into detail about the many great uses of our ingredients: Health Benefits Blog

2) The Flavor

Mmm, mmm, mmmm… what’s cooking? From the moment you open up one of our flavorful seasonings, you can tell it’s all fresh, all-natural and all completely delicious. A lot of branded seasonings have a good taste, but they don’t offer the freshness or that great quality flavor that Seasonest seasonings provide each and every time. Once you’ve experienced the richness and variety of flavors that our seasonings offer, it’s hard to ever to back to anything else. Taste our very first flavor, the Original Blend, and see what your taste buds have been missing.

3) To Travel

Very few of us have the luxury of just hopping on a plane on a whim and flying to our dreamland destination. It may be that you can’t whisk yourself away right now, but you can certainly take yourself to far off destinations with your food choices! If you’re looking for a Caribbean escape with cool waters, warm sand and a spicy twist, take some time away from everything with our delicious Jerk Blend. Or, perhaps you’re looking for something romantic that reminds you of rolling, green hills, cobblestone streets and the most appetizing smells you’ve ever known. This type of fantasy needs our Italian Blend!

4) To Encourage

If you feed picky eaters, welcome to the club. Sometimes, it’s really a challenge to get certain family members to eat the food you put in front of them and it can be extremely frustrating, sometimes even offensive. We’ve found through our in-store demos that even the pickiest eaters who try our seasonings LOVE them. We had a mom drop by and let us know about her picky eaters at home (who may also have been present in the shopping cart). She told us how much they loved our seasonings and how it got her picky eaters out of picky eating. Every mom has been there at some point, so it was really an encouragement to us and an inspiration to know how much our seasonings had an effect on even just one family. Her family liked our Mild Blend (You can click it!). Why not give it a try with your picky eaters?

5) For Ease

It’s been a long day. Work was super stressful. And you’re in charge of dinner tonight. You don’t know what to make and you were so busy that you forgot to plan ahead. You get home and manage to find some easy-to-cook ingredients after digging around in your fridge, but they look so plain and bland. You’re not thrilled. And then you remember… you’ve got Seasonest Soul Food Blend. You have instantly upgraded your easy-to-cook meal into something fabulous. Try Soul Food for yourself: Click Here


 

Take some time today to look through our website and pick out your favorite flavors. In no time, you’ll see the benefits to using our Seasonings. Let us know which category you fall into above when it comes to using our flavorful seasonings!

Have a fantastic weekend,

Meal Prepping and Weight Loss

 

Happy Monday Everyone!

It’s Courtney and I’ve decided that with the countdown to the holidays starting up, I’m going to get a head start on the usual New Years Resolution; losing some weight! A big part of losing weight is what you eat, right? Luckily, we’ve got Seasonest, which can make even healthy food taste fun, so I’ve decided to do a few things to get this ball rolling!

This past week my sister, Cori and I kicked off our goal with some fun meal prepping! We cooked all of our meals for the week ahead of time and it made life so much easier.

This weeks’ foods were a good start for us, but this is just the beginning. Alongside our meal prepping, we’ll be tracking our weight loss and trying to get to the gym at least 4 times a week. Please send all your encouragement along! :) We’ll keep you updated on our weekly progress.

If you’d like to join us, please let us know and share your own progress with us, what your favorite Seasonest recipes are and what you’d like to see made into “healthy” meals. Make sure to share your story or pics – we’d love to see them and be encouraged in our own goal!

We’re excited to start this journey to being healthier and hope you’ll join in.
