Nightshade-Free All Purpose Seasoning Salt (AIP, Paleo)
This lovely nightshade-free seasoning salt is a blend of various AIP compliant ingredients that can be used on chicken, beef, fish, pork, vegetables, and many other foods. It is AIP/Paleo, gluten-free, dairy-free, and easily made Whole30 by excluding the coconut sugar.
Having flavorful seasonings and spices at our disposal can make all the difference in the world when it comes to restrictive diets like AIP. When our meals are more enjoyable, we are of course more likely to stick with that way of eating.
There are so many cool spice blends out there on store shelves that taste great but they usually contain a lot of “other” ingredients which are not AIP/Paleo compliant like corn syrup solids, maltodextrin, rice concentrate, and monosodium glutamate (MSG) to name a few.
There are some great AIP/Paleo-friendly spice blends out there that you can buy but they of course cost a little more than if you just make your own. Plus, you have more control over the ingredients if you make your own.
You can make a large batch and store it in a glass container to use when you need it.
If you’re wondering what seasoning to put on that chicken breast or steak or roasted vegetables, give this stuff a try! This is actually the same seasoning combo used in my Creamy Shrimp Vegetable Skillet.
Here’s What’s in it:
- Pink Sea Salt
- Garlic Powder
- Onion Powder
- Turmeric Powder
- Dried Cilantro
- Dried Parsley
- Coconut Sugar
- Nutritional Yeast
How to Make a Seasoning Blend That's AIP Compliant
Make sure your spices are not nightshade or seeds, as these are not AIP compliant.
Some common nightshade spices include: cayenne, chili powder, chili pepper, paprika, and curry
Some common seed spices include: Anise, Annatto, Caraway, Cumin, Celery Seed, Coriander, Cumin, Dill Seed, Fennel Seed, Fenugreek, Mustard Seed, Nutmeg, Poppy Seed, and Sesame
Read Labels- Watch Out for Additives
Make sure the spices you are incorporating into your blend don't include any stabilizers, thickeners, or anti-caking agents.
These can include maltodextrin, wheat flour, silicon dioxide, citric acid, xanthan gum, guar gum, "natural" flavors, etc.
