I’m a bit embarrassed to admit it, but I am sort of in a creative food funk. I guess I got lazy. Here’s why…
When I started this blog, I often asked my clients if they made any of the recipes I posted. Very few people made them. Most people didn’t have time. After a long day of work, traffic, tending to the kids, etc. the last thing anyone wanted to do was cook! Even though the recipes I share are easy, it was still hard for people to take the time to make them. l also discovered that people get bored eating plain food (duh!) and that many people don’t know how to make healthy food taste great.
These are huge barriers to success on any healthy eating plan.
So I decided to find a solution. Around the same time, an elementary school classmate of mine approached me to create a line of dry rubs for his website. We hadn’t seen each other in almost 30 years, and the timing was perfect!
And you can blame them for why my recipes have slowed down. After months of testing and modifying the spice blends to come out just right, I still eat these all the time. I have very little incentive right now to make anything else because they are so good (if I do say so myself) and easy.
There are 4 different spice blends: Cajun, Chimichurri, Chile-Cocoa, and Jerk. I hope I can help you enjoy healthy eating because I know it is possible. Coming soon, I will share some of the ways I have used Aloha Rubs to spice up my life! But until then, if you try Aloha Rubs, it’s simple. All you have to do is come home at the end of your day, season the protein of your choice, and throw it on the grill or in the oven. It’s as simple and quick as that.
Cajun, Chimichurri, and Jerk are all Phase 1, 2, 3, and 4 appropriate.
Chile-Cocoa is for Phase 4 only.
