*Braggs Liquid Aminos – is a healthy alternative to soy and Tamari sauce. Made from non-GMO soybeans with no preservatives or additives. Not fermented. *Onion powder - is not always easy to come by. Onion powder becomes hard once moisture from the air gets to it. The simplest way to have onion powder is make your own. You will need dried onion flakes and a powerful blender.  Place flakes in the blender. Blend on high until it forms a powder. Two teaspoons of flakes make just over a teaspoon of powder.    
"And God said behold, I have given you every herb bearing seed, which is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree, in the which is the fruit of a tree yielding seed: to you it shall be for meat".
Genesis 1:29
