Name your favorite seasoning. And for the love of God, please don't say "Mrs. Dash". I have every single one of them, and if I never taste it again, it'll be too soon.

Thinking of mainly chicken and beef here. Thanks! :popcorn:

LOL. I've been using that with the Mrs. Dash. Kinda defeats its purpose, but whatever!

Sea salt is good for you. Especially if you get the kind that has not been processed, thus ensuring beneficial mineral content.

I wonder whether it's been processed. Is the color really white? Most unprocessed sea salts will have an off-white to gray color.

It's really white. What do you use? And where do you usually get it?

I get it at the local earthy-crunchy store. Don't recall the name off the top of my head. But it's from France and it's gray. I've also read very good things about Himalayan pink salt.

Agreed. I have everything here in my personal kitchen arsenal, except for Rosemary. Bad, bad memories associated with that name.

In any case, seasonings are easy. They're just herbs. Smell them, picture the base taste of the meal that you're thinking of cooking and see if they either go together or the seasoning could possibly expand or bring out the flavor. Sure it's trial and error but unless you really fuck up and go overboard it's still edible trial and error.

But when crunch time comes, I really dont think there's anything that the variety of Louisiana Hot Sauces cant cure. Every company makes one, they all taste a little different is all. Then there's the various other Mexican sauces, you just have to be careful because some are hotter than hell itself. The Habanero is great, just super, super hot, so I use it in pinches and dabs. The Valentino is great on eggs.... and dont ever forget plain, good ol' salsa. Rotell makes some very good canned ones, my favorite is the one with green chilis and tomatoes. Get out there and look around, you're bound to find something.

What about marinades? Are you on a keto diet? If not, here is a good one for chicken breasts-- orange juice, olive oil, thyme, sea salt and fresh ground pepper.

Also, you might get some other answers in the Muscle Meals section. If you want me to, I can move the thread over there.

I'm not on a keto diet. That actually sounds really good.

That would be awesome.

I like to use all seasonings. Some are just better than others.
