Organic Culinary Delights from Frontier Co-op and Simply Organic

426814_10150876962839988_194071905_a Since I have decided to switch over to eating organic I have noticed that foods taste so much better. I suppose it is because there are no chemical residues marring the natural flavor of the foods. I was recently given the opportunity to try some organic seasoning blends from Frontier Natural Products Co-op, and organic vanilla from Simply Organic. I received three styles of seafood seasoning for review and a bottle of one of the best tasting vanillas I have ever tried. Let me tell y’all about them.

Seafood Seasoning

First thing I noticed and I love is that the seafood seasonings come in  glass bottles. Lids have both shaker side and spoon side as well as the option of simply removing the lid if you are in need of a large quantity of spice. We tried all three flavors on grilled shrimp. These seasonings are fabulous. Anyone can master the art of seasoning fish perfectly with Frontiers Natural Products seafood seasoning. Original has beautifully balanced taste. Low sodium has so much flavor that you will never miss the extra salt.  Blackened has a slight bite. All three types tasted amazing on our fresh wild caught shrimp. We even tried the original and blackened on some grilled zucchini and were delighted with the results. Check out the ingredient lists below. Notice you can pronounce all of the ingredients. I was once told if you can’t pronounce it, don’t put it in your body. I think this is a good rule to live by.

Make a “splash” with Simply Organic® Seafood Seasoning; one bite and you’ll be hooked.

Earthbox has a super easy way to keep your plants well watered while allowing maximum gardening in even small areas. I received an EarthBox® Junior™ Garden Kit in Margarita for review. Let’s check it out.

EarthBox® Junior™ Garden Kit – Margarita web_jr_gk_mgrta

I am a huge fan of the EarthBox. I started using the Original EarthBox  last year to grow peppers. It did an amazing job. I was able to grow 6 different types of peppers in a very small space on my back porch. They grew all summer long with no issues of distress from the sun. I was actually still getting peppers this past November. Neighbors were all like WOW. How is that possible. It’s an Earthbox is all I can say. EarthBox is designed to maximize watering potential so plants grow large and healthy. You can see the details of how it waters from underneath the plants in the pic of the Original EarthBox with casters and trellis added at the left.
