Use Cayenne Instead Of Salt


Members Were Sparked
This Sparked Me!

I have started using cayenne on just about everything: popcorn, rice, any meat, soup, potatoes, even on apples. It adds a little spice, but not really any flavor. I find that somehow this "tricks" my taste buds into forgetting there isn't any salt on my food, and I don't have regrets later!

I have also heard that cayenne is good for high blood pressure

    Interesting, cayenne on apples. I am going to have to try that one. I use cayenne all of the time.

    I think; it was the Dalton boys that traveled with Jesse James who latter got shot up so many times that they lived to tell about it because they used Cayenne in everything. It made the blood clot up. I was told this by a relative of Jesse James.
