This lucky lady right here got a most awesome package from my friends last week. Jars and jars of homemade spice rubs. They are so beautiful, and not to mention delicious!
Look at these flavors! One to go with any type of dish you are creating. If you can’t tell, I was instantly in love and spent the better half of my morning unscrewing and inhaling (ok, be real, just smelling) these creations!
My friends make these rubs with local ingredients (they even grow some of the peppers themselves!) and have really mastered the mix, if you ask me. The household favorite at my home is the Schweet Hot, which really takes it’s time in developing from a nice warm sweet into a kick at the end. It kicks up everything from steak, to fish to vegetables! Yes, spice up your veggies, you will be happy!
I love using these rubs to add flavor without fat to my cooking. “But the sugar!” you may ask? (Or maybe you are too busy drooling, which I totally get.) Yes, there is a tad of added sugar but 1) you just need a bit of these rubs to pack a punch and 2) let’s not get into a lifestyle where a bit of added sugar is enough to send you over the edge. Keep it real, ya’ll.
Here is my most delicious salmon dinner that I created using the Citrus Rub. (Yes, I’m a grown woman and I have sweet potato tots with my dinner. It was Saturday. Judge silently.) It was DIVINE.
Rubs and spices in general are a great way to add a ton of flavor to your healthy meals. If you are focused on eating healthy, variety can be challenging. Lots of folks tell me they fall off the wagon because they are bored of eating the same meals, or don’t know how to be creative with the few recipes they have mastered. Try adding a different flavor profile to your proteins! Even eating chicken two nights in a row with a different seasoning (perhaps Cajun one night and Citrus the next?) will keep you interested and on track.
If you’re convinced you need to try some of these tasty rubs, you’re in luck! They are available for purchase & can be shipped to you for this BBQ season! Impress your friends and excite your mouth. Check out the order form here:
