Making a Healthier Lifestyle

I've been on a health kick for the last several months. It all started with Christmas when I asked for new pans. They're ceramic instead of teflon so I'm not poisoning my family when I cook amymore. I've been implementing new ingredients into our menu too...quinoa, couscous and making my own seasonings. I started with my own taco seasoning and this weekend I made a mix to use instead of cream soups called S.O.S mix (soup or sauce mix).
Ingredients in the taco seasoning. 

Finished product! 
S.O.S (soup or sauce mix)

Why did I decide to make my own seasoning and cream of soup mix? Because now I know (and can pronounce) all the ingredients that are in our taco seasoning and other dishes. When it comes to the cream of soup mix it's a little different. It isn't as thick as a creamy soup so I need to look into it more. Do you make any of your own mixes? Pinterest gives me a lot of inspiration when it comes to cooking and new recipes. My only problem is trying to find the time to make these recipes. If you have a favorite recipe or homemade mix to substitute for another item I'd love to hear it!!
