They say variety is the spice of life. This actual phrase comes from William Cowper’s poem “The Task”: “Variety is the very spice of life, that gives it all its flavor.” How very true indeed! So, before you make your next grocery run, check your spice pantry first to see what spices you both have and need.
If you are like most people, coming up with a new recipe can be extremely difficult. A great way to circumvent this challenge is by experimenting with new spices and mixing up how you season your go-to breakfast, lunch, dinner and meal prepping recipes. Using new and different spices and seasonings can offer you an unlimited resource to avoid what is now known as “palate fatigue”.
There are various benefits to using spices. Spices last a long time. Sometimes just a pinch of spice can make all the difference in the world. Spices are also a relatively cheap investment.
Certain spices are extremely healthy for you and can even work within even the strictest of diets. For example, Ayoba makes a Spice Blend that is made with all-natural ingredients and is Keto Certified, Paleo Certified and Whole30 Approved. Spices also make it easier for you to avoid that sugar filled pantry in your kitchen (yes you know the one I’m talking about) and step on over to your spice rack or cabinet!
Spices are fun to experiment with as well. I have recently started to add Ayoba Spice Blend to my veggies, eggs (both scrambled and hard boiled) as well as on my latest creation – avocado toast!
You name it, adding a great spice can make any dish or snack POP with more flavor!
