Depending on what herbs you may need to stay away from, there are two ways you can make your own Italian seasoning rub for you meat of choice. I prefer using chicken.

If you are not allergic to what is in the Organic Italian Seasoning that is sold at the store, I highly recommend buying it for a quick and easy way to season things if you are new to adding flavor and cooking from scratch. Here is my quick and easy Italian dry rub:

INGREDIENTS:

Approximately 2 Tbsp Organic Italian Seasoning (depends on how much meat you are making)
1 Tbsp Onion Powder
1 Tbsp Garlic Powder
Add Sea Salt and Pepper (a good size pinch of each for each piece of meat)
Add a Tbsp golden Monk Fruit (optional if you want caramelization to occur if grilling)*

If you ARE allergic to what is in a typical Italian seasoning or wish to make a homemade version, here is what I usually throw together.
2 Tbsp dried Basil
2 Tbsp dried Oregano
1 Tbsp Onion Powder
1 Tbsp Garlic Powder
1 Tbsp dried Parsley
1 tsp dried Rosemary
1 tsp dried Sage
1 tsp dried Thyme
1 tsp dried Celery Seed

DIRECTIONS:

Mix all these dried herbs and seasonings and put them in a small jar with a lid and use as needed to flavor various vegetables and meats. (optional – you can grind in a coffee grinder to make it a finer consistency)

To make an Italian Seasoning Rub using my homemade seasoning mix, what I usually do is dry off the chicken (for example) with a paper towel and then drizzle Avocado Oil and use a brush or my hands to get it on the front and back. Then I sprinkle a pinch of sea salt and pepper on each piece of chicken and also sprinkle and rub some of the seasoning rub into the meat. *

Cook the meat however you would like – grilled, pan fried, baked, roasted – for how long the particular type of meat needs to be cooked.
