The Splendor Garden Retail Brand of Spices, Herbs, and Seasoning blends was started the fall of 2012 after the founder, myself—Colleen Haussecker—had been through a life-changing battle with breast cancer.
Going through the whole cancer experience makes one look at the nutritional value that can be derived from different food sources. In my search to educate myself on the health benefits of different foods, I realized that we were missing out on the huge health benefits that could be derived from spices and herbs by making our meals Deliciously Spicier!
What better way to add antioxidants and extra nutritional benefits to every meal simply by the increased use of spices and herbs.
After my journey through breast cancer and my quest to become healthier, I realized there was a need for a full organic line of spices, herbs, and seasoning blends.
I must admit that I always found myself wanting to cook with more spices and herbs, but never quite knew what spices to use and when. Thus I always ended up adding a bit more salt or sugar or—worse yet—butter to flavour food. (Okay be honest, I’m not alone in this!) However, I discovered that by adding more herbs and spices to my meal preparations I could replace unhealthy ingredients like sugar, salt, and saturated fat. Suddenly meals were more appetizing and more satisfying—with the added bonus of making one less likely to overeat.
Here at Splendor Garden, we want to help you and show you ways to use spices and herbs in your everyday meals. I say this with a smile on my face for we are continuously educating ourselves as well!
You will enjoy being able to come to our website and browse our recipes to easily make your own dips, salad dressings, rubs, and marinades, just to list a few. One of our goals is to impact the obesity epidemic that Canadians are facing by educating and enabling one to make meals Deliciously Spicier!
My love of the food industry birthed a desire to develop a private brand of organic spices and herbs that would show the true Splendor of God’s Garden and thus helping people become healthier by adding that little extra nutrition to each meal by adopting our Deliciously Spicier! motto.
This is how the
Retail brand of Organic Spices, Herbs & Seasoning blends came to be.
We hope you enjoy our high quality organic line of spices, herbs, and seasoning blends.
