Flavour it Up with Seasoning Recipes

I’ve got a fun DIY project for you today that has the power to turn a good recipe into a GREAT meal that belongs in your Hall of Fame!

Keeping on theme with easy tips and better nutrition, I wanted to share some DIY Seasoning recipes!

Using the right seasonings can make a HUGE difference in how your meals taste … and today I’m going to show you simple and easy ways to make your own custom spice blends!

Two of my favorite reasons to use your own blends:

1 - You can control how much salt you use (important since most of us get too much – we’re supposed to get 1 teaspoon a day, tops, according to health guidelines) and

2 - You can use just the spices/herbs you want – and not any extra fillers or unnecessary ingredients.

I’ve got 2 DIY spice blends today. Keep them on-hand to toss into your favorite recipes!

Just measure and mix the spices and store in a mini mason jar or small freezer bag. Make sure to label the container with the name and date. They’ll keep for about 6 months.

Homemade Taco Seasoning

(makes about ½ cup)

Use this whenever you want to add taco flavor to a dish, from meat to veggies, and even sprinkled over popcorn.

● 4 tbsp chili powder

● 1 tbsp each: pink Himalayan sea salt and ground black pepper

● 2 tsp each: ground cumin, black pepper, and paprika

● 1 tsp each: garlic and onion powder, red pepper flakes, oregano

Montreal Steak Seasoning

(makes a little over ½ cup)

Even though this has “steak” in its name, it’s a good all-around peppery blend, delicious on potatoes, other meats, and veggies.

● 2 tbsp ground black pepper

● 2 tbsp paprika

● 2 tbsp Pink Himalayan salt

● 1 tbsp garlic powder

● 1 tbsp onion powder

● ½ tbsp red pepper flakes

● ½ tbsp coriander

● 1 tbsp dill weed

Give these a try and see how you enjoy them!
