Why would your Mom, Kid, Auntie, Sister or Friend want Quilter’s Comfort’s Seasonings in their stocking or included as an add-in gift?

Why would L.A.O. seasonings be at the top of the prepared seasoning list?  First of all, everyone in the family can appreciate the fresh tastes and flavors imparted by these small batch blended certified organic teas or seasonings. But most important for some is that Quilter’s Comfort blends all seasonings without nightshades, an allergen know to cause, for some inflammation.

Some persons with arthritis have been medically advised to exclude nightshades which are found in tomatoes, peppers, eggplants and white potatoes (tobacco is a nightshade).

Some advised to avoid not just the obvious nightshades, but prepared foods that are processed with these foods.  Persons following these suggestions have reported very positive results including reduction and sometimes remission of arthritic swelling and pains.  Some have even felt relief from bursitis, gout, tennis elbow, lower-back paint, headaches, high bloom pressure and similar conditions.

No white potatoes!  No Tomatoes!  Egg Plant or Peppers!  What a kick off the path!  I would, I thought, I could, find a way around this.  I loved these foods!  They were an accent or main ingredient to daily dishes, not to mention, that I had spent decades cultivating heirloom varieties of both peppers and tomatoes! 
Well, I went kicking and screaming, but You don’t have to.  And you can ease away from these foods.  Give your self this easy test to see if and how nightshades influence your body.  Consciously reduce the quantity you eat, even eliminate entire servings.  Read labels on prepackaged items, even shredded cheeses.  Use only corn starch.  Do this for a week.  If you want to, keep a journal; plan on eating a particular meal with nightshades making notes of how you feel.  Then a few days later prepare the exact meal only leaving out the nightshades.  Again, notice your body and write about all your observations, if any.   

I no longer use nightshades nor knowingly consume products that include them in their composition.

I found that most commercial seasoning blends contained nightshades or other artificial substances my body did not like.  I, being a food explorer and lover, and someone who enjoys experiencing a variety of flavors and food traditions had to do something. 

So Quilter’s Comfort developed a line of delicious, small batch blended seasonings reflecting a global palate to of flavor and free of nightshades.  You can enjoy all L.A.O. blends including Curry and Garam Masala and recently made available, Coumeric Pepper.   

Exciting to the mouth, these spice compositions offer great taste experiences that your entire family of eaters, home chefs and friends can enjoy (professional chefs and dieticians too)!

Quilter’s Comfort’s L.A.O. seasonings are available in a sampler packet and glass shaker jar.  As always Bloomington, IN area folks, email request for invoice and  pick up in the Flowing Colors Studio.  Email is always the best way to reach me.

 Thank you,

I look forward to seeing your face soon and I look see you in time.  May we each in our own way spread a little Quilter’s Comfort cheer!
