Spice of Your Life

One of the hardest changes when trying to get into the habit of eating healthy is kissing all the delicious cooking companions goodbye. You know... your good friends like butter, cheese, heavy cream. My mouth is watering & I don't want to ruin my keyboard, so I'll stop at those. I am the kind of person that is cool with the low fat/fat free version. Sure, it doesn't taste as good, and it doesn't ALWAYS cook the same, but it's usually pretty close.

I've found that the easiest way to enhance flavor without enhancing your thighs is to add some spice to your life! Allie is the Spice Queen. If you look around my spice cabinet, there are several spices that she has introduced me to & they've been used up!

My favorite spice that Allie ever shared with me was Chili & Lime spice. Chili & Lime spice is apart of The Gourmet Collection brand that can be found at none other than TJ Maxx! I love it so much that if I ever discover a new TGC spice I add it to my collection!

Currently, my shelf is housing the following TGC spices ~ Roast Vegetable & Fries, Basil & Tomato, Garlic Bread and Chili & Lime. As you can see, I haven't opened the Roast Vegetable & Fries seasoning, but I can't wait! I add the Chili & Lime seasoning to EVERYTHING! Just ate it last night in my Weight Watchers 1 pt Soup! The Garlic Bread spice adds a nice flavor to the Sausage & Cream cheese purses that I shared a few weeks ago!

~So tell me, what is the Spice of Your Life? ~
