Wellnes Wednesday: Flavoring without Salt
The average American consumes 6 to 18 grams of salt daily. That's roughly one to three teaspoonful. Our bodies actually only need 0.5grams of salt (0.2grams / 200mg / sodium) daily. Salt should be limited to 2300mg daily. This is about 1 teaspoon of table salt. (More on salt later)
For now, here are ways to make foods tasty without using salt.
Try these flavorings, spices and herbs:
For Meat, Poultry and Fish
Beef: Bay Leaf, Marjoram, Nutmeg, Onion, Pepper, Sage, Thyme
Lamb: Curry powder, garlic, rosemary, mint
Pork: Garlic, Onion, Sage, Pepper, Oregano
Veal: Bay Leaf, Curry Powder, Ginger, Marjoram, Oregano
