How to Save Money on Herbs?
Have you ever been really excited to try a new recipe? You get completely set up in the kitchen, gathering ingredients, and re-reading the recipe. Then, you turn to take the fresh cilantro out of the refrigerator only to find it shriveled up and brown. Or worse, it’s creating a gross slimy cilantro scum in the bottom of your produce drawer.
Been there, cleaned that.
We all want the taste of fresh herbs without any of the difficulties that come with them.
Food Waste and Your Wallet
Not only do fresh herbs go bad quickly, they are expensive to buy. Think of how many times you’ve bought a bunch of fresh parsley at the grocery store, used a handful of leaves, then let the rest go to waste. That adds up quickly.
According to the EPA, the biggest contributor to American landfills is food waste. Nearly half of all produce in America ends up in a landfill.
It pains me to throw away uneaten food that has gone bad. That is why we must take steps to make a change.
So where do we go from here? I wish I had a green thumb, but I unintentionally kill the so called “un-killable” houseplants. Sure, a cute kitchen window box full of fresh herbs would be nice, but I just don’t have the time or the knowhow.
I love the flavor of fresh herbs, but they are never there when I need them. That’s why Simply Beyond Spray-On Herbs® are my new favorite way to incorporate that fresh herb taste without the waste.
Just a little spritz is all I need to add a delicious cilantro flavor to my grilled corn salsa. Spray a fresh baguette with garlic Spray-On Herbs® for quick garlic bread. Slice up some tomatoes and fresh mozzarella then spray with basil for a drool-worthy caprese salad.
I was skeptical at first. It cannot be easy to create a spray with the actual flavor of a fresh herb. However, Simply Beyond has done it. Even better, they last for over a year, are shelf stable, and are packed in an eco-friendly non-aerosol can.
Simply Beyond Spray-On Herbs® make cooking convenient and when cooking is convenient, it is more enjoyable. Instead of spending your time learning to chop and chiffonade fresh herbs, you can spray your food with organic herb essential oils.
You can spend less time cooking in the kitchen or running to the store because your basil went bad. Less time in the kitchen means more time to spend with family.
Like many people today, when it comes to cooking for my family I want to use the best ingredients I can. That is why I choose organic and non-gmo foods.
When choosing these healthier options, I know that they are free of toxic chemicals like pesticides, were grown using healthy soil, and biodiversity.
Pesticides and other chemicals used in conventional farming can build up in our systems. By using healthy and responsible soil methods, the produce contains more vitamins and nutrients. Organic farming also implements crop rotation and biodiversity, which makes for more sustainable farming.
Overall, picking up an organic, non-gmo, Simply Beyond Spray-On Herbs® will save you money while keeping you and our planet healthy.
That’s a win, win, win. And a yum, yum, yum. 🙂
