Food, flavors and recipes change based on what’s trending in the food world. Seven key trends inspired Tastefully Simple’s new seasonal product line and the fresh foods and flavors that can make your life more delicious this season.
1. Healthier Choices
Wherever you look – in magazines, on TV, online – people are talking about wholesome foods and smarter eating options. Diets like Mediterranean, Keto and low-carb are rising in popularity. This trend inspired our Cutting Carbs 10-Meal Kit, the 14-Day Reset Kit and our NEW Mediterranean 5-Meal Kit.
2. Clean Ingredients
Consumers are looking at food as fuel and want to fill their bodies with clean ingredients, rather than artificial flavors and preservatives. People are paying more attention to labels when making food choices. We are proud that over 85% of our line is TS EatWell – products made with nothing artificial, just real goodness.
Meatless Mondays. Vegetarian recipes. You’ve probably noticed that plant-based foods are becoming ever more popular. People are looking for new ways to enjoy vegetables. They’re being grilled, roasted, riced, puréed and more. Check out our seasoning blends for a simple way to sprinkle expert flavor onto veggies, any way you cook ’em.
This traditionally warm-weather cooking method is gaining traction as a year-round favorite. Grilling adds great flavor to food and is also convenient.
Check out the seasonal sauces great for grilling and so much more – Buffalo Dill Sauce, Orange Chile Sauce and Pomegranate Chipotle Sauce.
5. International Flavors
There’s a whole world of flavor adventure out there – and more and more people are looking to take their taste buds on a flavor adventure. Mediterranean, Asian and Mexican flavors are the most popular. In fact, Mexican flavors inspired many products in the line like Sí Sí CilantroTM Seasoning, Giddyup Guacamole MixTM and Fiesta Party SeasoningTM.
6. Meal Kits
The meal kit industry continues to grow. Consumers love the inspiration and convenience meal kits offer. People spend about 30 minutes in the kitchen per day, and they don’t want to spend that time deciding what to eat. Meal kits help with the decision making. Tastefully Simple is known for delicious flavors, and we showcase them in our selection of meal kits. Check ’em out »
7. Casual Get-Togethers
We’re entertaining differently now. Formal affairs are giving way to casual get-togethers with drinks and appetizers. Happy hours are the new dinner party, and grazing tables and platters are the new buffet.
All this is pretty exciting, right? We invite you to enjoy foods inspired by all these trends to keep your recipes fresh and your meals exciting.
