05 Dec Weekly Menu – Seasoning Recipes
I wanted to do something a little different this week as far as I’m not going to be sharing recipes for meals…BUT…this might even be better because I’m going to share with you different ways to make fresh seasoning blends.
They are very versatile (you’re welcome) and you can use them with your favorite recipes to spice things up (pun intended) and make a healthier version of your favorite meal!
Why make your own seasoning blends instead of buying the pre-made packets at the store? For MANY reasons!
Here are a few:
- You can control how much salt is in your food. (They really pile in the salt in those seasoning packets)
- Eliminate preservatives
- Control all ingredients that go into your food (eliminate toxins)
- Say goodbye to MSG
- Eliminate unnecessary ingredients like added sugar and starch
- There is NOTHING good in processed foods
(This is my favorite one – I use it weekly and I have it memorized)
This is for 1 lb of meat
1 TBSP child powder
1 tsp onion powder
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp paprika
1 tsp oregano
2 tsp cumin
Blend together and enjoy!
