Her Inspiration

Dr. Flava was richly inspired by her  grandmother and mother who taught her many culinary skills, which ignited her passion at an early age. She admired that, both her mother and grandmother were smart, educated and successful women who could 'through down" in the kitchen. Back in college, she was known to take canned food, boxed food, even cafeteria food, and whip up something amazing!  Over time she began to put her own twist on dishes, which created a different outcome from her mother and grandmother. Realizing food just requires the right flavas and technique!

Our Journey

Deciding to make a difference, Dr.Flava used her innovations, talents, and dreams in a start-up catering business in 2014, focusing on healthy, yet very tasty cuisines with a soaring rate of success. But one day looked at her cabinet that was filled with a variety of spices and herbs  just to make her food taste amazing. She thought, this is why people don't enjoy cooking and choose to eat out which can be unhealthy, but when you cook at home you can control the amount of sugar, fat & salt.

It was December 2016 she embarked on creating her own seasonings, with just two flavas then she bottled them up and gave as Christmas gifts to close family and friends. Shortly after, DR Flava Spices was launched in March 2017 and is becoming a household name bringing life to foods with recipes and fast meal prep techniques helping busy moms, novice, families, and foodies to make healthy cooking choices that become mouthwatering meals -  Just what the DOCTOR ORDERED! 

Being a creative foodie, Dr. Flava continued to expand her line of seasonings adding more flavas each year. Currently DR Flava Spices offers 13 amazing Flavas, with both lower sodium and salt-free options available now. Our spices are for all cooking styles, Vegans, Pescatarian, and Vegetarian dishes.
