The team at Keli’s Hawaiian Gourmet Sauces has been working hard behind the scenes developing the next line of Keli’s Sauces.  We have listened to customer feedback, and have developed a 100% organic line of sauces that tastes amazing!  Don’t worry, we will not be changing the ingredients on the original sauce line.  As you can see above, we have designed a new logo for the sauce line and have been busy taste testing different flavors.  We think we have produced the best tasting organic teriyaki sauce on the market!  If your interested in our healthier line of products please sign up for our mailing list so we can keep you updated on our product launch.  The first couple recipes have been finalized, the label has been designed, and we are now waiting on the factory to begin manufacturing.

If your interested in healthier options, then we have the sauce for you.  We should have our new organic sauce lined released to the market within the next 45 days.  Check back often for updates.

The founder of Keli’s Sauce Co Terry Morrisey was recently featured in the Coast River Business Journal.  The CRBJ is the premier business publication on the North Oregon Coast.  Keli’s Sauce Co is proud to call the North Oregon Coast home and we were excited to share our story with the CRBJ.  Keli’s Sauce Co started as a small home based business, and has now grown to sell sauce to customers around the world  A small snippet of the article is featured below, or you can click through to read the full write up.

This Gearhart company even distributes its products in the islands.

GEARHART — The flavor of Hawaii flows to Northwest markets thanks to a coast-based business selling sauces made in Beaverton and based on a recipe picked up in the Marshall Islands decades ago.

It’s not as complicated as it sounds.

Terry and Jim Morrisey were working as teachers in Majuro in the Marshall Islands in the 1970s.

“That’s where we got the recipe for the sauce,” Terry said. “The Hawaiian family that took us in had this sauce and fed it to us.”

When they came back they used it in the Stop & Go Market Jim’s parents opened in Seaside. The sauce worked well on teriyaki chicken, meatballs and other items.

It was a hit with customers who wanted to buy just the sauce, and soon they were selling cups of it for $2.

In the 1990s the bottled sauce appeared on grocery store shelves in Portland and proved popular with customers.

9113806_origI know a lot of you out there are living a gluten-free lifestyle. Anyone who has been shopping lately for gluten-free products can attest how expensive they can be.  I Wanted to share an article I found today that has some good cost saving ideas while eating Gluten-free.
“How to live gluten-free on a budget? It’s a legitimate concern. I feel your pain. $7.95 for a gluten-free baking mix? Ouch. 

There’s a lot of chit chat lately about food budgets, food prices, and stretching a dollar. Budget talk is in the air. Eating in and cooking from scratch is a trend now. And for those of us living gluten-free, a  trend unlikely to burn out soon.

So if- like me- you are struggling to balance your cranky budget, here are ten tips and tricks to stretch the green and keep it tasty.”   glutenfreegoddess.blogspot.com

1. This, you know already. Buy pantry items on sale

2. Eat more vegetarian and vegan meals

3. Make your own snacks instead of buying pre-packaged

4. Use more potatoes

5. Eat breakfast for dinner 
6. Pasta is goddess sent. 

7. Buy raw ingredients in bulk

8. Make soup

34473902015 is almost here and it’s time to make a new year resolution.  Why not make the smart decision to focus on your health this year?  If your feeling under the weather this holiday season, try starting off your day with something healthy.  Drink this Keli’s approved and super tasty immune boosting cocktail.
 I like to start my day off with a healthy beverage.  Instead of drinking sugary drinks or gallons of coffee, fill your glass up with water and try this great tasting and healthy drink.
1. Add 1 scoop of Beyond Tangy Tangerine 2.0 Vitamin and Mineral Powder.  If you don’t have any you can buy it online at the Life Naturally Health Food Store.
2. Cut a lemon in half and squeeze it into your glass.



3. Add a table spoon or two of raw apple cider vinegar.

Mix well and enjoy.  Not only does this drink taste amazing, but is also very healthy for you.

Be Good to Yourself!
