Getting your kids to eat a rainbow of foods is easier said than done. The typical go-to solution? Masking them with unhealthy sauces (we’re looking at you broccoli and cheese sauce!) When her three sons were young, Tesse, of Tessemae’s All-Natural, developed and perfected healthy, all-natural marinades, dressings, and spreads to help her active boys eat all the healthy foods needed to keep them going strong. Lucky for us, her eldest son Greg founded Tessemae’s, so now everyone can enjoy Tesse’s recipes! Kids will love the power-punch of flavor these sauces add to food, and grown-ups will love the lack of “fake stuff”. The whole Vetter family has banded together to bring us their delectable creations all while “keeping it real”…are you?
From the Mouth of a Kid:
I love dipping my veggies in the sauces. Sometimes Mom let’s me mix up my own flavors!
From the Eyes of a Parent:
It’s easy to relate to Tesse as a fellow mom of some very active kids! Vegetables can be a tough sell, but these marinades and dressings pack such a great, flavorful punch that my kids are actually wanting more. And since Tessemae’s dressings and dips are made without artificial ingredients or stabilizers, I’m not taking away any nutritional value. Plus, their website offers a fantastic weekly meal planner, complete with grocery lists, which is so helpful for a busy mom like me! You can really feel the love and care the company puts into its site and products. As their “Daddio” and Director of Good Karma puts it “…[it’s] a journey, a search for health and wholeness; in joy of life and joy of work. It’s about food.”
Tessemae’s offers a variety of dressings and marinades (balsamic, Matty’s BBQ sauce, cracked pepper, Italian, red wine vinaigrette, raspberry vinaigrette, Southwest ranch, zesty ranch, and lemon garlic), as well as honey mustard and ketchup spreads, and roasted chopped garlic in original, cracked pepper, and Mediterranean flavors.
The Icing on the Cake:
Tessemae’s All-Natural is a family-owned and operated business, and all their products are dairy, gluten, and sugar-free, paelo, vegan, certified Earth Kosher, and Whole 30 approved. Better yet, their products are calorie free and low in sodium!
Time to Eat?!
