Yesterday I mentioned greatly reducing my salt intake in the hopes of reducing cravings. Just like sugar...salt affects the brain. And food manufacturers play with the combination of sugar, fat, and salt, to increase cravings and have you buy more product. A few people were surprised that salt could be addictive. So I share the following excerpt from an article. From Duke University Medical Center and Australian scientists.

"......Our findings have profound and far-reaching medical implications, and could lead to a new understanding of addictions and the detrimental consequences when obesity-generating foods are overloaded with sodium. "

Along with all the herbs and spices I use, I cook with low-sodium chicken broth and olive oil...the combination adds a lot of flavor to my dishes...and just enough salt. I also find that adding a little mustard to my marinade (for chicken) adds enough salt to satisfy me. And if that doesn't work, I add a tiny bit of lemon or balsamic vinegar. I don't need to buy more salt.
