Well, it’s high time I told you about Penzey’s Spices if I haven’t already. These people are awesome and cook with me almost every day.
I LOVE salt and am trying to cut back on it, and this delicious seasoning is one of the only spice mixes I’ve tried that makes me forget all about the salt shaker:
It’s got garlicky, herbal flavor for days and I especially love it on avocado or popcorn.
This Turkish Seasoning does have salt in it but it is so flavorful, you don’t need much. I mix this with yogurt to create a yummy non-fat sauce for falafel or barley or smashed up chickpeas on toast:
Just a reminder that I don’t get any deals or discounts from companies whose products I recommend. It’s all for the love, darlings. And our mutual health — yours and mine.
I find that it’s very easy to cut out sugar OR to cut back on high fat foods (like fried chicken wings, which I love more than any sweet stuff), but not both. Ain’t that the damndest?
But it’s a one day at a time life. I do find that drinking plenty of liquids helps a LOT with not getting cravings in general. Drinking plenty and getting to bed at a decent hour. That’s the key to every good thing, so how come it’s so danged hard?
I don’t know about you, but I feel a renewed sense of commitment to my health. There’s too much to do to witness to sanity and decency in the world right now for me to not do my best to be at peak performance.
