Bell's Seasosning

It's a mystery I haven't been able to solve.
My mother always had an open box of Bell Seasoning. I can remember her sending me to the store to buy it for her. I know she didn't use is in her stuffing, or rubbing the turkey with it, or using it in any chicken or pork recipe. I can't find any reference to it in her handwritten recipes or my grandmother's..nor do I remember her using it when she showed me how to cook. So, I am perplex as to what she used it it.
I love Bell Seasoning. Unfortunately it's not in any of our stores here in California anymore. So, I order it off the net.
The mystery will remain unsolved..sigh.

Hello Group

I'm on a low sodium diet due to HBP, and now my hubby is also low sodium due to Meniere's Disease. I've been trying to learn more about using spices to replace salt and re-learning scratch cooking. I'm so happy I found this group!

Super Spices- 30 Day Challegne

New reasons to season When you hear the word "antioxidants," what foods come to mind? Blueberries? Pomegranates? How about cinnamon?

That's right. When it comes to antioxidant prowess, cinnamon vies for top billing along with blueberries and pomegranate juice. You may be surprised that spices and herbs are extremely rich in antioxidants – with levels comparable to many fruits and vegetables, including today’s popular "super foods."

Spices and herbs make food taste great. You already know that. And you're probably aware of how they can help you eat healthier by cutting down on salt, fat and sugar when cooking. Now there's emerging evidence that these kitchen essentials may help protect your health. With each pinch, dash and spoonful, spices and herbs can help boost the antioxidant power of practically everything on your plate.

So what exactly are these things called antioxidants and why should you care? Antioxidants are extraordinary workhorses in our bodies. Studies suggest they provide a range of benefits, including giving our immune system a boost. They also appear to reduce inflammation, which is increasingly recognized as a first step in heart disease, cancer, diabetes and other chronic disease.

Preliminary studies indicate that spices and herbs have anti-inflammatory properties that may hold tremendous potential in promoting good health. Other studies suggest spices and herbs may help curb your hunger and boost your metabolism – which might make it easier for you to manage your weight.
