If you are intimidated to try a new dietary lifestyle like going plant based or vegan, you are not alone. A significant amount of consumers have grown up their whole lives eating animal proteins, processed foods, white pasta and bread, and canned goods with insane amounts of sugar. The thought of changing that habit can be scary, but can be overcome!
After a decade or so of this particular pattern, it is hard to break what is familiar to try something new, like changing your eating habits. One of the top concerns I get from clients and friends is that they don’t know how to cook plant based meals that taste good. Everyone views healthy eating as steamed vegetables with olive oil – bland bland bland.
The key to transitioning from a meat based diet to a plant based diet is all about how you prepare and cook your foods, but most importantly how the meal tastes. This can lead to another dilemma, you made steamed broccoli and soy beans, then doused it with Costco brand soy sauce that is exploding with chemicals and over 1,000 mg of sodium. Back to square one. One of the ways you can eat healthy and make it taste GREAT is by finding natural and organic sauces and seasonings, which leads us to this amazing brand, Savour This Sauce.
Savour This Sauce is an artisan dressing and sauce line that is great for you and tastes even better. What makes this sauce line stand out above generic brands is the fact that ingredients are locally sourced; each sauce is gluten-free, vegan, and has a simple yet effective list of ingredients. STS’ current sauce line includes: Red Pepper Romesco made of – roasted red peppers, sun dried tomatoes, apple cider vinegar, almonds, garlic salt and olive oil; Pistachio Mint Pesto made of- parsley, mint, pistachios, red wine vinegar, garlic, salt and olive oil; Thai Chile Cilantro made of- cilantro, Thai chiles, apple cider vinegar, honey, salt, pepper and olive oil.
I used my samples in a surplus of recipes this past week – I added the Pistachio Mint Pesto to bean and collard green soup (amazing), the Red Pepper Romesco to my baked goat cheese and eggplant roll ups, and the Thai Chile Cilantro mixed in with my vegan enchiladas. All added an abundance of flavor!
