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)
