Green Motivation Monday - Taste the Season

This post is part of the Green Motivation Monday series.  The purpose of these weekly posts is to offer motivation to take a small baby step in the green and eco-friendly direction.  Of course, I will be taking the step right along with you.  I will let you know how I did and I hope you let me know what you were able to accomplish.

Motivation: Taste the season by f
lavoring foods with spices and low-fat, low-sodium seasonings like rosemary, basil, or red pepper.

Instead of heavy sauces, butter and marinades, flavor foods with spices and other low-fat, low-sodium seasonings. Try rosemary, basil or red pepper on some of your favorite foods this week for a new, healthy twist.  By avoiding heavy and pre-made sauces, you will reduce the amount of toxins and additives in your body.  Pre-made sauces often contain High Fructose Corn Syrup and Preservatives.

Love this tip!! I've found that when we add sauces, marinades, etc, we basically cover up the flavor of foods. In my opinion, spices and herbs enhance the flavors ... without all the added "stuff". :-)

This is so true. And what this makes me think of (especially since this is Thanksgiving week) is sweet potato casserole. We add SOOOOO many things to sweet potatoes when they are so good on their own!

Thanks so much for dropping by the Be-Bop-A Blog Hop! I can't wait to read the article you wrote this week. I saw it was pending, but swamped doesn't even begin to cover it for me. Have a wonderful Thanksgiving! :)

Small Footprints - I don't mind a little butter and cream here and there, but I do agree that we cover up the actual flavors and completely lose out!

Keeka - Ahh yes, the sweet potatoes! My MIL makes a sugary sauce that they swim in. I always try to pick the ones off the top that have the least sauce. Sweet potatoes are sweet by themselves!

Melissa - I completely understand about being swamped between work, home, and prepping for Thanksgiving! I hope you have a great holiday!
