Hi Everybody, Debbie Benson here...
This is where I can tell you about what I know, what I have found-out, and here I can also rant a bit.
Since I was a little girl I have been aware of sodium, both high and low levels, as you learned in my first Season-It Newsletter 3 Tips That Help A Low Sodium Diet. Starting Benson's Gourmet Seasonings has been a dream come true.
As I learn, and find helpful information, tips, products, recipes and websites, I will share the information with you here. Then, you can follow-up and do your own research and make your own, more informed decisions regarding your health, or the health of a loved one. Knowledge helps you and gives you power to make better decisions.
It's not just about what you don't do or can't have. It's also about things you can or should do or add to your diet that can make a difference. Here we go...

When it comes to parties and dips Guacamole dip is one of the most requested. It is made with fresh avocados and fresh ingredients which will help keep it low sodium. However, a low sodium dip is not usually served at parties. Guacamole dip can be high sodium by adding salt, a commercial seasoning packet, hot sauce which is usually high in sodium or a combination of these. As you can see, this naturally low sodium dip can easily become a high sodium dip. Then serving salted tortilla chips can push the sodium over the top. Serve with unsalted tortilla chips or crudités which is a French word for raw or lightly blanched vegetables served in bite-size pieces like carrot sticks or cauliflower florets, often served with a dip or dressing. Try thinly sliced Jicama (it’s crunchy like a chip). Keep it fresh, natural and low sodium. Read full article...
