If you want to eat right, then you need to get serious about your seasonings. That’s the philosophy behind Make it Taste Good. The artisan spice company, which appeared on USA’s America’s Big Deal last year, was founded based on the belief that when it comes to sticking with a healthy diet — taste is the top priority.

As an entrepreneur and “spiceologist,” owner Esther Elizabeth has made it her mission to prove there’s more to good food than sugar, salt, and fat. Swapping those ingredients with nutrient-rich seasonings is half the work of creating a healthy dish that doesn’t taste like cardboard. The other half is choosing unprocessed seasonings that aren’t irradiated, fumigated, or filled with additives — like many conventional spices on supermarket shelves.
