Salt substitute

Tuesday, March 30, 2010

Well now, I was so excited about my sodium intake being lower, then I got hit with a new dilemma! Salt substitute (potassium chloride) can be just as bad for you as salt is.
Will fix that. I am throwing it out, and getting a chart on herb use, what does what, and I will start incorporating herbs, into everything, I normally want to have the salt on. So there Salt! take that!!!! I ain't down yet!!! emoticon

    Great idea! Why not start an herb garden? I did last summer and have really enjoyed it. If you don't have a yard, try growing some in planters. Good luck to you.

    When I do use salt, it's sea salt. I've never tried Mrs. Dash but will have to check it out.
    You're doing great and you will win!

    I own ALL of the Mrs. Dash products which helps to add flavor, but contains no sodium.

    Keep up the hard work.

    I never bothered with salt substitutes... I just stopped using table salt! I only use it in recipes that absolutely need it, but I never ever use it on french fries, in restaurants, etc. anymore! Mind you, I used to consume AT LEAST 3000mg sodium per day... easy! Now I barely consume 1200mg on some days. Anything's possible!
