T's Hot Sauce® is made with only the finest hand selected organic, peppers, herbs, and Spices. T's hot Sauce is low in sodium and just explodes with flavor.
The reason behind T's Organic Hot Sauce is to create a sauce that combines the right amount of heat for all of those true chili heads like myself with a ton of flavor. So even those who order the mild sauces can still appreciate it. (in the smallest amounts of course)
I started the T's Hot Sauce company in October 2009 but my love of hot sauce goes back to childhood. In February 2009 I received a hot sauce kit for Valentines Day. I must have been shot with an arrow from the spicy cupid because the first batch came out tasting better than any hot sauce I had ever had. I basically took all of my favorite fresh organic ingredients and tossed them in a bottle. The rest is history.
I currently hand select organic peppers from local Southern Californian Farmer's Markets. My ultimate goal is to operate a GREEN pepper farm and manufacturing plant. Not only is T's Hot Sauce a delight for your taste buds but it's great for the earth as well.

At least one quarter of American adults eat out every day, and obesity has risen to more than 190 million Americans overweight or obese. With two-thirds of all Americans obese, Pick It Kick It proves that grabbing a bite to eat doesn’t have to mean packing on the pounds.
The all-American meal is a hamburger, fries and a coke or a shake, averaging over 1200 calories. McDonald's revolutionized fast food, introducing a way to eat food without knives, forks or plates. Eating out at any restaurant causes problems, not just menus from the drive through. There are hidden calories in every menu, and making simple swaps on dishes can save hundreds of calories. Pick It Kick It shows what simple picks, kick the calories on some of America’s most popular menus.
“Portion control is key,” says author Diane Hart. “Choose smarter foods (and less of them) and you’ll bust fat without even knowing it.”
Since the 1970’s, portion sizes in restaurants have increased up to five times. And, with the USDA reporting a 22 percent increase of added fats and oils, Americans are getting more than they pay for.
Follow these 10 tips to ‘know the skinny’ at any restaurant:
Stick to restaurants known for their healthy food options
To cut down on fat intake, order low-fat salad dressing on the side, and then dip your fork between bites to get the flavor without the extra fat
To cut calories while keeping taste and nutrition, mix your OJ and other fruit juices with equal amount of mineral water, plain water or seltzer and give the other half to your dining partner
Avoid bagels and muffins: Portion sizes have doubled in size and calories over the years, while muffins contain the bad stuff
Swap artificial sweeteners for honey, a half-teaspoon worth is just the right sweetness
Takes up to 20 minutes for food to digest: chew food thoroughly and slow down
Don’t “save your calories” by skipping meals: Not only will you slow down your metabolism, but you will be famished by the meal and most likely overeat
Anything “creamed,” “scalloped,” “au gratin,” “sautéed” or “breaded” is most likely loaded with fat: Go for “smoked,” “barbecued,” “roasted,” “grilled” or “broiled”
Buffet-Style Dining: Avoid it but tips if you must-Do an initial walk around and find vegetables and other clean etc., next get the small plate and load up on the proteins and other clean foods. Watch out for sauces and fried foods, skip breads and pastas
Portion control: Most people underestimate the calories in a meal by 150 to 400 calories; box off half of your meal for leftovers, less calories and two meals out of one saves money
Diane Hart says, “Eating right doesn’t have to be difficult or expensive – it is a simple matter of making the right choices and that comes from knowing what foods are better than others.”
