Using a slow cooker isn’t as much of a short cut when the recipe calls for sixteen ingredients you don’t have.
Wildtree Recipe by: Donna Hetrick
A couple years back, I was introduced to Wildtree products by my Nutritionist/friend, Donna. Simple. Healthy. Natural. I was amazed at how simple it was to make fabulous, great tasting dishes, with just a few ingredients, all at the same time!
Battling health issues, I wanted to have my cake and eat it to (so to speak), great taste without risking further damage to my body. Restrictive diets can be boring, tasteless and just down right depressing.
I help care for my 3 grandchildren. On average, I make 15 different meals a week. That’s 45 plates of food. It was daunting to separate my meals from theirs; incredibly time consuming. I longed for a more simple way yet, I’m extremely picky in the kitchen – I love my “made from scratch” meals, so do my grandchildren!
Incorporating the Wildtree products (seasonings, mixes, sauces, dips and dressings) which are organic, non GMO and all-natural, I finally could have my cake and eat it too. Plus, my grandchildren loved the meals. How great is that? Kids are the greatest critics when it comes to food, right? Simple, easy recipes that are truly no-brainers!
I’ve found Wildtree to be my one-stop-shop for ingredients in recipes that satisfy my taste buds; however, feel free to substitute your favorite seasonings.
