Creating Clean Eating Spice Mixes

The Meal plan has 3 recipes for spice mixes.

  • All-Purpose
  • Southwestern (tacos and chilis)
  • Mediterranean (Italian)

You can buy several basic lower costing spices at Adli’s and even The Dollar Tree.  I bought a bunch for a $1 each at a local grocery outlet store.  I also bought these cute jars with attached lids for $1 each at the craft store.  I was able to mix up the spices in bulk so it’s easier when I make my recipes.  Each jar holds about a cup of seasoning.  I multiplied each recipe so they would fit in the jar.

All Purpose Seasoning

  • 4 tsp onion powder
  • 2 tsp garlic salt
  • 2 tsp mustard powder
  • 1/4 tsp thyme
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper
  • 1 tsp sea salt

Southwestern Seasoning

  • 1 Tbsp chili powder
  • 2 tsp cumin
  • 1 tsp coriander (cilantro)
  • 1/2 tsp onion powder
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp oregano
  • 1/2 tsp paprika
  • 1 tsp seat salt

Mediterranean Seasoning

  • 4 Tbsp dried parsley
  • 4 tsp dried onion
  • 2 tsp dried basil
  • 1 tsp oregano
  • 1 tsp thyme
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper

I didn’t have labels so one of my best friends (who was with me at the time) and I decided to use some word bubbles from my scrapbooking stuff.  Because the colors are so different, it’s not hard to figure out which is which seasoning.  However it was fun to be a smartypants.


  • “You Need This!!” = Mediterranean
  • “I must be out of my mind!!!” = Southwestern
  • “You look Fabulous!!” = All-Purpose

I thought all of these reflect some of my feelings and hopes for my upcoming 21 Day Fix.

Here are some other ways preparing to make life my easier during the 21 Day Fix:

I’m also going to make a spreadsheet for recipes and which colored containers they include.  That way it’s an easy reference when I cook and plan.
