Herb and Flower Seeds in Vermiculite

I’ve mixed together some herb and flower seeds in vermiculite and I sprinkled the mixture on one of my garden beds. Most of the herbs are perennial!

Crunchy Mama’s All-Purpose Spice Seasoning Recipe

One of the reasons that I am successful on my high-veggie, no-grain, no-bean diet (paleo diet) is because I have learned that vegetables can go from blah to AMAZING with the right seasonings.  I have a lot of bottles of spices and when I cook I usually get out 5 or 6 different bottles of spices and just spinkle some of each on.  Today, I realized that should just make a batch of a spice blend (with my favorite spices) and keep it in a plastic container and then I only need to get one container out when I am cooking — less frustration! 

So, here is Crunchy Mama’s All-Purpose Spice Seasoning Recipe:

1 Tbsp onion powder

1 Tbsp garlic powder

1 Tbsp dried thyme

1 – 2 tsp. sea salt (I like Redmond’s Real Salt for all the minerals that support my body)

1 – 2 tsp. white pepper

2 tsp cumin (my favorite!)

1 tsp dried mustard

1 tsp powdered coriander

1 tsp smoked paprika

1 tsp ground celery seed

1 tsp. dried marjoram

Makes about a 1/2 cup of seasoning.

You can adjust or omit or swap out any seasoning that you like and customize it to your liking or what you have on hand.

Additionally, I want to mention that I believe that consuming a variety of herbs and spice helps to support our bodies and build our immune systems.  There are a lot of studies out there that lend credence to that belief.

I’d love to hear from you!  Do you have a favorite spice blend recipe that you would like to share?  Comment below.
