AIP folks, listen up and rejoice! Reading the ingredients of spice blends looking for weird additives is a chore. Spare yourself the headache! Choose this simply delicious blend from Paleo Powder. It's mellow, savory, just a little bit salty, and perfect for keeping the AIP tummy happy. You can add it to stews, roasts, scrambles, hashes—anything that strikes your paleo fancy. Himalayan salt serves as backdrop for all of the best herbaceous flavors like garlic, oregano, basil, and sage. Nothing here to irritate your system so feel free to sprinkle with abandon.
Think you can't season foods well while following an auto-immune paleo protocol? Think again and take a look at this lifesaver of a shaker bottle from Paleo Powder. Starting with mineral-rich Himalayan Pink Salt and adding all of the best and most friendly spices available: garlic, onion, oregano, basil and sage. Everything dances on your tongue and livens up foods from poultry to veggies to soups. It can do pretty much everything in the kitchen except dessert.
I found it especially delicious on anything having to do with chicken: roasted, grilled, even poached in a bath of bone broth and lots of this seasoning to boost the oomph and flavor. And how about roasted veggies? I'm talking asparagus, zucchini, and Brussels sprouts. Not following AIP? This is amazing on eggs, too.
Whatever foods strike your savory fancy, this is one blend of deliciousness that will elevate them all.
Seasoning salts and spice blends are serious lifesavers in the kitchen. No half-teaspoon of this and quarter-teaspoon of that to make the right spice mix for that roast or the side dish. You grab a jar of somebody's magical blend and just shake like a present on Christmas morning. It's easy; it's handy. But for many of the big-name seasoning brands, there's more: it's full of sugar. And MSG. And cornstarch to keep everything separated.
Not so with Paleo Powder. You start with salt – not iodized salt – from the Himalayas and start adding flavor in the form of garlic, onion, oregano, and even a bit of sage and basil. Stop adding ingredients right there. No fillers, no sugar, no absorbents. What does that mean? It means potent flavor and – possibly, depending on your humidity level – a little bit of clumping. A bit of a shake and things are back to normal in no time. When we choose foods that are unadulterated or made shelf-stable until the next century, there will be a little bit of caveats. For this stuff it's the delicious ingredients sticking to each other, sometimes. I can live with that. I bet you can, too.
The blend overall just makes everything taste so good that this might be an excellent way to nudge some reluctant veggie eaters in your life.
Compared to just "any old salt", the mineral content of Himalayan salt is outrageous. High in magnesium, potassium, and iron (which gives it the pink hue). Adding to those minerals is a hefty dose of calcium. Now, you'd have to consume a LOT of salt to get close to your RDA of those minerals, but every little bit helps, right? Consuming something that's come from the earth or the sea directly is preferable to the factory processes table salt is subjected to before going in that navy blue cylinder on the store shelf. Viva la Himalaya!
There are about as many uses for Paleo Powder as there are foods in the paleosphere. Here's just a few to get your brain a'storming:
From Dustin, the founder: "In 2010, I began doing CrossFit, and although I quickly saw changes in my fitness levels, I still needed help with my eating habits. I chose to follow a Paleo lifestyle and it changed my life - I lost over 50 pounds! Paleo Powder Seasoning was created to add flavor to Paleo meals while staying true to what a Paleo lifestyle really means – I even use it at my BBQ competitions. My goal has always been to make the best tasting seasoning without any MSG or Gluten."
