Azubuike and Amaka are Nigerian born pharmacists married and living in the suburbs of Dallas, Texas. We grew up with Maggi and Knorr (MSG rich spices) added to our foods and we loved the depth of flavor they added. Due to the conflicting data on the safety of MSG as a food additive as well as the other unnatural additives, we decided three years ago to embark on a healthy anti-inflammatory diet. It was a difficult transition and finding a healthy but flavorful spice replacement was challenging.
After the birth of our 3rd child a year later, Amaka suffered some health challenges and had to start physical therapy. Her pain was severe enough on some days that it was hard to get out of bed without pain pills. Not relenting on our mission, we remembered that old saying “let thy food be thy medicine” and decided to give our anti-inflammatory diet our best shot. At this point, Amaka was desperate enough to give up her beloved Knorr and Maggi.
