Like most busy people, we always used to reach for a ready-made seasoning or spice mix to flavour our meals. A while back we made the decision to eat less processed foods and try to be a bit more healthy. One of the things we did was to start reading the ingredients on the foods we purchased. I think you need a chemistry degree to be able to interpret most food labels these days one of the things we found is that in lots of the seasoning and spice mixes we used, there is a huge amount of hidden sugar, salt and MSG.
At this point we decided to look into making our own homemade spice mixes and rubs etc. We found two things out WOW, freshly made home seasoning/spice mixes taste way better than store bought, and secondly, these homemade mixes are really quick and easy to make! Most of the dry mixes also keep for months when stored in sealed containers.
I searched online, and I discovered an amazing seasoning mix resource on the Budget101 website. At the time of writing, there are over 190+ DIY spice mixes, rubs and seasoning recipes for you to try.
