Quick and easy delicious tasty meals using Spice Rubs If you’re interested in food, you’ll be interested in Rubs. Cooking is a form of alchemy, taking various elements to meld into one glorious and harmonious end product. It’s exciting, rewarding, and satisfying to be able to produce something that gives so much pleasure to you, your family and your friends. Be it ‘blackened fish’ or ‘golden roast’ chicken or herb flavoured lamb or spiced up veg, our explosively flavourful Rubs - mixtures of exotic spices and herbs, transform ordinary fare into mouth-watering dishes of distinction. Transform your food Bold or subtle Our Rubs can be subtle or bold, depending on the type of Rub and how you apply them. Certain spices will hit the high notes of your taste buds, while herbs will lend a more gentle flavour to your food. Fruity, earthy, spicy - tasty for sure and once you start cooking with Rubs, you’ll want to explore more and more exciting flavours to titillate your palate. Making your own Spice Rubs or buying in? You can of course make your own Spice Rubs. There are many example recipes available on the internet. But, by the time you take into account the inevitable waste due to the varying quantities of spices and herbs required to make just one Rub blend, you may find it more convenient and cost effective to simply buy your Rubs ready-made. Blends For the purposes of this recipe book, we stay with the Food Rub Co blends, but there are other spice Rub suppliers, both in the UK and abroad, offering a variety of flavours and blends. The Food Rub company’s blends are based on traditional recipes which were researched, studied and tested over a long period of time before arriving at the Rub mixtures now offered by The Food Rub Co. Reasons for using Rubs (diabetics) I first learnt about the benefits of using Food Rubs when I became pre-diabetic and need to lose weight fast. I changed my diet to mainly chicken and fish, but found this too bland for my pallet. I looked around for a solution and happened upon ‘Rubs’ while we were in Florida. I found them very effective in helping me keep to the new regime; in fact I got to love cooking with Rubs. And that experience provided the inspiration to create The Food Rub Co and share our new interest with others – like you! We don’t claim that Rubs have any specific benefits for diabetics, but we are happy to share the experiences of our customers and this is an unsolicited email we received from Maggie Robinson in 2016 Dear All Got my order of Rubs last week and I'm thrilled. I have been insulin dependent diabetic for several years and have come to dread thinking about limited and monotonous possible meals every day Then suddenly along comes the rescue in the form of Rubs to spice up life again I can't thank you enough and just to add that although there is a little sugar in some of the mixes nothing has upset the blood sugar levels at all so …no worries Well done and many thanks This may sound exaggerated but anyone on an enforced deadly dull long term diet will appreciate what I'm saying Cheers Maggie Robinson Of course, Food Rubs aren’t just about healthy eating or losing weight. They enable you to cook great tasting dishes in no time at all; the health benefits are just a bonus, so go ahead and try them. You won’t regret it and as our company motto says:- Life’s too short to eat dull food! Bon Appetit…!
