Have you checked the label on your favorite seasoning packet? Spoiler Alert: Store-bought seasoning packets are typically not healthy or low carb! On top of that – brand name taco seasonings are more expensive.

I never saw myself as a make my own seasoning type of gal, until I learned A) How terribly bad pre-made packaged seasonings are and B) How easy it is to make a healthy version myself. Then I became a believer:)

Yellow Corn Flour: Starchy grain
