Brainpower Seasoning Mix
A food seasoning that's good for the BRAIN?! Get outta here!
Well, as much as I enjoy homemade seasonings for my food (my favorite all-round, Greek, Italian/Zucchini), & since my family is dealing with my mom's dementia, this just might be worth a try.
You can use this seasoning mix for salads, popcorn, soups, stews, meats, etc. All of these ingredients can be found in bulk at better health food & bulk food stores.
~3 Tb sesame seeds
~4 Tb nutritional yeast
~2 Tb powdered kelp
~1 Tb powdered ginko
~1 Tb powdered gotu kola
~1 Tb lecithin granules
~1 Tb spirulina
~1 ts powdered rosemary
~Various of powdered kitchen herbs of your choice; the author recommends thyme & garlic [also try oregano & parsley ~ KW<><]
~A sprinkle-type container with a good, air-tight lid
1) Toast the sesame seeds in a heavy skillet, then grind them in a seed or nut mill [you may use a coffee grinder, but MAKE SURE that it is one that's dedicated to herbs only ~ otherwise, all of your herbs will smell like coffee. ~KW<><]
2) Combine the sesame seeds with the remaining ingredients, adding the kitchen herbs to taste.
