San Francisco, CA (January 19, 2018) – Over one third of the people reading this right now have already given up on their New Year’s resolutions. The most popular pledges involve losing weight, eating better and living a healthier life. For those who have already replaced the salad fixings with frozen pizzas and tater tots don’t despair. Adding a little spice to your diet will help more than you think.

Common seasonings such as cinnamon, peppers and chilies can increase resting metabolism and suppress appetite. For those that have aching joints munching on ginger and garlic based meals can help. As a boost to your immune system order up some dishes that have cumin and turmeric as flavor enhancers.

All of these can be found inside gelatin capsules in the vitamin aisle but why not enjoy the flavor these spices provide while feeding the body what it needs. Don’t stress out figuring how to cook with each one because there are companies that have already combined the best flavors. Take a stroll down the gourmet section of the local grocery store to find unique pre-mixed spices along with flavorful sauces that can be used on the grill or in the kitchen. Leave the condiments and hot sauces to the uniformed.

“The super hot craze is, for the most part, over and we’re seeing a return to medium-spiced but intensely flavored fiery foods.” according to Dave DeWitt, food historian, novelist and “Pope of Peppers”. Sauce Goddess, a California award winning gourmet food company, agrees that people don’t need to lose feeling in their mouths to enjoy spicy flavors. “My goal is to have the best tasting and innovative line of gourmet sauces, spices and products so anyone can create delicious and healthy meals”, states Sauce Goddess President, Jennifer Reynolds.

Ken Alexander, fiery food blogger and industry expert/enthusiast said, “The Sauce Goddess’ line of products is a true example of how to smartly combine heat and flavor. The flavor profiles are unique, fun, and surprisingly versatile, with varying levels of added heat. I’ve had fun with the Moroccan rub on veggies, meat, and even bread! And I’ve used the pepper relish in everything from Cordon Bleu to twice baked tuna potatoes!” Alexander went on to say, “Spicy and fiery foods represent the fastest growing segment of the condiment industry, due in part to aging palates and a growing global awareness. The Sauce Goddess has been a pioneer in developing products that capture the palate and the imagination.”

Leave the ketchup at the ballpark and slowly back away from the hot sauce bottle. It’s time for people to enjoy a tingle in the mouth without sweating like they stepped out of a Bikram yoga class. Let’s all resolve to try unique flavored dishes and enjoy eating great tasting food that’s good for us this year!
