Spicing It Up With Wildtree: Adding Flavor & Flair to Organic & Healthy Recipes (What to Make & Also What to Wear)

Spicing It Up With Wildtree: Adding Flavor & Flair to Organic & Healthy Recipes (What to Make & Also What to Wear)

During these beautiful summer months I am always looking for ways to spend less time in the kitchen and more time around the table enjoying friends and family. However I don't want to sacrifice nutrition or flavor and I certainly don't want to resort to using a lot of the ready made store bought short cut products I've seen. This is why I was so excited to see, hear about and try this amazing collection of all-natural and organic products that were made to help people like me create simple and delicious meals in no time. I was invited to sample the Wildtree brand by my friend, Dawn Sano, who is an Independent Representative for Wildtree and does an amazing job providing naturally wholesome products, easy delicious recipes, and innovative ideas for meal planning and prep. She prepared this awesome assortment of food and invited me and the kids over.

Dawn spoke to me about her initial experiences with Wildtree and why she believes in the company and the products so much. The founder, Leslie Montie, had no intention of starting a business. She simply wanted to make dinner for her family. Her kids had specific diet restrictions, so a trip to the grocery store created many challenges to mealtime planning. A store bought box of macaroni and cheese was not an option for Leslie and she felt there was nowhere to turn for meals and recipes that were nutritious, unprocessed, easy to prepare, and of course delicious. She started experimenting with herbs and spices and put together interesting combinations for pizza, pasta,roast chicken, and barbecue, storing them in recipe-sized bags to speed up prep time. They became so popular with extended family, friends, neighbors, friends of neighbors that she began selling her blends at local fairs. She sold out at every fair she attended and the business of Wildtree and the products you see here were born.

Dawn showed me how simple it was to prepare recipes with the Wildtree Collection and I really loved how she was able to add these organic spices, oils to simple fresh food and end up with such delicious dishes.

The children and I really loved all of the food and I saw for myself how easy it all was to prepare so I was eager to try some of the products for myself. The next day I used the Seafood Seasoning and the Roasted Garlic Grapeseed Oil. I purchased fresh seafood and vegetables and prepared Roasted Shrimp Skewers and Seafood Salad Sandwiches following the recipes provided by Wildtree. One of the things I like most about Wildtree is that they give you so many healthy and simple recipes to make the most of your organic products.

My family loved the Roasted Shrimp Skewers and the Seafood Salad Sandwiches. My husband couldn't believe how quick I was able to have everything ready and how flavorful it was. We both appreciate the fact that WildTree believes in making a positive impact on a global scale through responsibly-sourced ingredients. We researched the company and found that WildTree partners with farms across the world that are committed to respecting the environment, their employees, and the quality of ingredients they produce. I feel that WildTree can help me be mindful in my meal planning because with the collection I can create delicious flavorful meals in a short amount of time with all simple, natural ingredients. The nutritious and easy-to-follow recipes make you feel like a superstar in the kitchen because they show you how easy it is to keep your family happy and healthy! 

I'm really glad Dawn introduced me to this company and I'm so proud of her for being one of the smart, passionate, forward-thinking entrepreneurs at Wildtree who are changing the world one meal at a time. They are representing a company, a business and a community focused on real food, real meal-planning solutions and real opportunities for all. Find out more about opportunities like this here.  

Speaking of spicing things up, here are a few outfits that I think are fine on their own but definitely more fun and have more flair with this fabulous pair of strappy, patterned wedges I found at Burlington Coat Factory. They are sold out but I recently found a really awesome selection of affordable and unique wedges, sandals and slides here that would work out really well to 'spice up' a daytime or evening look. This first outfit is all from Aventura Clothing, an outstanding, ethical company which I blogged out recently here and also quite recently here. The last two dresses are from Thredup which is a great place not only to find perfect quality brand name and designer used clothing but also a fabulous place to send your own gently used clothes.

And still speaking of spicing things up, this is a really awesome tool for anyone that enjoys wine but doesn't like having to open a whole bottle just for one or two glasses. It allows you to pour the wine without removing the cork and is super easy to maneuver! It is the Coravin  Model One and you can find out exactly how it works here

Thank you so much for visiting the blog today! I hope you enjoyed it and found it worthwhile.  

I truly appreciate your time and attention.
