Vegan Cooking with Spices and Herbs: The Ultimate Health Hack


Anti-inflammatory. Anti-oxidative. Anti-microbial. These are just some of the terms used by health experts around the world to describe high quality spices and herbs. To put it simply, the right seasonings can be tremendous tools in helping you become healthier.

For thousands of years, cultures around the world have used spices and herbs as health-promoting and even medicinal agents. Turmeric, chili powder, black pepper, paprika, and ground celery are just some of the pantry items that have been lauded by doctors and nutritionists alike as powerful natural substances that can aid our bodies in countless ways.

With all of the health benefits we gain from the flowers, fruits, onions, and other plants used to derive seasonings, it seems obvious that we would want to include them in our diet. But many people lack the chef’s touch needed to harness these spices and herbs’ robust flavors. Too much, and your seasonings will overpower your food. Too little, and you’ll experience bland meals that may even short you of the health benefits you’re looking for.

Nature Has Flavor was born in 2016 to address this very problem. After switching to a plant-based diet in response to several health scares, Chef Liron Meller began outlining a plan to bring his 20-plus years of cooking experience to the plant-based world. In particular, he wanted to share his knowledge on:

  1. Flavor combinations
  2. Seasoning ratios
  3. Ingredient sourcing

With this knowledge, Chef Meller believed that everyday women and men would develop the cooking skills needed to unlock the full potential of plant-based foods.
